Sounds simple enough . . . except that I am venturing into the blogging world to record my journey to and through motherhood. I don't think it will be as simple as "beginning at the beginning," because that would take me back to seven years ago when I was pregnant with my first child, seven years full of LIFE that I can't begin to cover in a blog post. I think I'd much rather begin at the present, reflect back to the beginning now and then, and of course dive into a whole lot of the "in-between" from time to time. :)
I'm Kara . . . wife to Scott and mother to two little kings (William and Edmund) with one more little king on the way (Henry). Some other hats include daughter, sister, friend, former special ed teacher, small time entrepreneur, and I'm currently working for Baby Loves Disco.
So . . . why record my venture to and through motherhood? First, I've long held the hope that sharing my story will somehow help ease the pain and burden of someone else who might be going through a tough spell in their own journey to (or through) motherhood. Also, I used to keep a journal (and haven't taken the time to keep it up since I've had kids) and I enjoy the process of . . . processing! :) This is just a much more public form of processing, but I'm not a very private person, so I welcome you to come along if you like and stick around for the journey.
There are many unknowns ahead. Henry (little man on the way) has Down Syndrome. We found this out several weeks, actually months ago and have been processing it for a while already. I will write more about that experience later, but for now I thought it would be pretty important to bring up, because it is certainly the next big step? hurdle? chapter? in my story.
I'm not sure who's reading along, but hey, thanks for joining me.
