Holy crap, I did it!!!

Oh. Em. Gee! I can’t believe I am sitting here and typing up my first blog post. This year has been a doozy, and I thought now was as good a time as any to start blogging.  I know I know, every millennial and their BFF has a blog these days, how am I going to set myself apart from the millions of others?  To be honest, I didn’t put much thought into that.  I just planned on being myself, and being 100% honest with you guys.  I hope that my authenticity and transparency is enough to hook, line, and sinker…sink you? Whatever. You know what I mean.  This is going to be a place where I share my stories, my day to day, my real life.  If I have questions, I am going to ask, likewise, if you guys have questions for me, I invite you to ask!  I am here to connect with other moms, soon to be moms, those thinking of having children, heck, anyone willing to read and connect with me is someone I’d like to get to know!

I should probably introduce myself, right?  Hey!  I am Caitlyn, a 28-year-old suburban livin’, shopaholic and mother of two.  Mother of two.  Sorry, I had to retype that so I could read it again.  Sometimes I can’t believe I have a child, let alone two.  Focus, girl!  Two boys.  Lincoln is 2, and Wyatt is just shy of 6 months.  They are my heart and soul, my fuel, my world.  They also drive me crazy, and often make me question my morals and parenting skills.  I can’t imagine life before I had kids.  Mostly because my brain is mush now {mom brain is REAL} but partly because it’s the most amazing thing in the entire world.  If you have kids and don’t agree with that, you’re lying.  Straight up.  I don’t believe you.  It has changed my life, for the better, and opened my heart and entire self up to emotions I never knew existed.  I also want to mention my one of a kind husband, Jason.  He will be a large part of this blog, as he is my best friend, and partner in crime.  I would not be here if it weren’t for him.  He works his ass off, so I can stay home with the boys.  He sacrifices, so that I don’t have to.  I love him more every day, and thank God for bringing us together.  He is constantly teaching me new things, and helping me to become the best version of myself.  I’m also an amazing wife, and do the same for him, so don’t get it twisted here, people.  He’s great.  I’m decent.  But together, we are unstoppable.

My goal is to post every other day, and I will do my best to hold true to that statement.  This is supposed bring you into my real life, so if I’m having a crappy day, you’re going to hear about it.  If Jason is pissing me off, you’re going to hear about it.  If I find a great recipe, you’re going to hear about it.  Basically, it’s like we’re dating.  Hope you’re comfortable with that.  I’ll talk a lot about my Instagram account @storyofaboymom and brand repping, as that was a large push for me to start blogging.  I have met so many amazing women, and they have been part of the inspiration for me to get to this point.  A huge thank you to all of you, you’re amazing!  I hope you are ready to come on this journey with me!  It will be a learning experience, for sure.  But I am more than ready!!!

**Please be patient with me, as I still need to get my site spruced up..it’s a work in progress people!**
