Mama’s Little Helper is a place to learn, grow, and connect. Despite the title, this isn’t really just for moms (or even just for women)… the name just kind of stuck.
Who I am – mother of 3. social worker. grantwriter. wife. sister. daughter. thinker. over thinker. planner. over planner. I’m really good at thinking about things to the point of obsession and then still not being able to execute it without some blood, sweat and tears. I have ADHD and Dysthymia. I’m still figuring things out – all things. I figured I’d document this journey as I make up this thing called life as I go along.
Who I’m not – your mother. Seriously, I’m not here to tell you what to do. Use what works and leave the rest. I’m not an expert. On just about anything. And I don’t pretend to be. I know things – from researching, talking to people who know things, and from my own experience… but an expert? Pssshh. I’m not a doctor. I’m not a nutritionist. I’m not a certified breastfeeding consultant. I’m not a certified car seat safety technician. I’m not a therapist. I am by no means the perfect parent. I’m not even a professional blogger!
But they say even a stopped clock is right twice a day – so I’m just here to share what I know, what I think, and capturing those ah-ha moments in the hopes that it helps somebody. Even me.
Oh, and I’m about as snarky and sarcastic as they come. I use hyperbole like a fluent language. I exaggerate to make a point. It’s a New England thing. This is usually pretty obvious, but I wanted to include a note about it, just in case – especially to preface the way I talk about my children. I love my children. You have no idea how much I love my children. I also use humor about parenting in order to cope. Go youtube Louis C.K. and listen to the way he talks about his kids or social issues. If you listen and you’re panties are in a bunch, this probably isn’t the blog for you…
