I am not a writer. I have lost count on know many times I have had to Google “punctuation rules when using quotation marks.” My grammar is pretty legit but I will need any audience I may have to be forgiving with my punctuation skills.
I am not really sure why I am doing this, starting this, or attempting this. One possible reason is simply a way to remember. I am a scrap booker and picture-taker with no time, discipline, or energy. This seems like a way to preserve not only memories and pictures but also thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Motherhood has been the single most amazing thing that has ever happened to me and I want to preserve every first step, every scraped knee, every favorite toy, all of it. I also struggle with this role more than people realize. I constantly doubt myself and question my abilities and decision making with this tiny human I am responsible for. If I write about this struggle and another mother with the same doubts and feeling can be comforted, that would be awesome.
