I wanted to introduce myself and give you a short little story as to why I am here in the first place. I’ll start with my name, Desiree, but most call me Des (pronounced Dez but I hate spelling it with a ‘z’).
I was born and raised in the state of Maine. I married my brother’s best friend, a true Mainer, Josh. I describe him as a “true Mainer” because of his love for trees and the outdoors. He’s an arborist, he literally hugs trees daily! I am a full time Surgical Sales Rep, which requires me to travel often for work.
We have 2 dogs, multiple fish, and chickens on the way! Most people get a kick out of our dogs, Chloe who is an 11 year old Yorkie and weighs in at about 5 lbs on her good day (7-8 lbs if she hadn’t been to the bathroom first). We also have Brutus, a 3 year old Cane Corso and Mastiff mix. He weighs more than me! He’s about 150 lbs. We have one extreme to the other with our dogs! It can be quiet comical!
We are first time parents. I am a first time mom! How exciting, right? We had a beautiful healthy baby girl in August of 2019. Little did I know the whirlwind of an experience I would have the minute I went into labor. Having my daughter has completely changed me and my life. During the 4th trimester, I found myself so many times asking anyone and everyone that would listen
“WHY didn’t anyone tell me about this?!”
So, that’s what I am hear for!
- Writing it all down helps me manage and navigate motherhood as well as my mental state.
- I can be the person to tell new moms what I wish someone had told me!
- How fun will it be to document all the little things throughout my child’s life?
I want to share all things motherhood and baby related with you all; postpartum, breastfeeding, childcare, managing work, sleep training, bottle feeding, etc. I will also share lifestyle posts from time to time for fun as well.
I would also love to connect with other moms! Let’s all build each other up and provide support! I would love to help someone out with any motherhood/parenting/baby advice they may be seeking!
I am excited to share more with you all along my journey through life!
I hope you all enjoy!
