As a breastfeeding Mom, I am sure you have experienced the intense hunger and thirst that comes along with breastfeeding. This is something I was not prepared for, and was not expecting to battle with.
So, I recently had to pleasure of interviewing award-winning author, Corine Dehghanpisheh. She really is a delightful person, and it was fun getting to know a little bit about her. I am here to review her recent book, #BabyLove My Toddler Life.
So, if you have been here before, you are aware that I had really really struggled with post partum depression and anxiety (read here and here). I was actually starting to wonder if I would ever feel normal again. Will these hormones ever balance? Will this anxiety and fear ever subside? Can I tackle this? Will my energy come back?
It has been something I have prayed over every single day. Just really genuinely wanting to feel better, more like me. Having the energy and happiness before Lily came along. I just wanted to be the absolute best mother for her, and the best wife for my husband.
So, I have a confession to make. I have become the comfortable mom. The mom who is typically in the workout gear and comfy clothing. Typically no makeup and maybe a hat on as well. I cannot help it, it is just too easy being home with Lily girl. But I will admit, some days I miss dressing up and getting myself pretty for the day. I do still try to do something to my face, but some days I just cannot manage the timing. When I was approached to join a style blogging group with 5 other women, I was super excited.
