The idea for this blog was born five years ago after we were gifted with our daughter Sophia. She was born with Down syndrome. This was quite unexpected and where our journey began.
I always knew I would be a mom. I had an idea of what parenting perfection looked like, and I was going to put it in practice! I had visions of an organized home, perfectly tied hair bows, and color-coded closets.
After welcoming Sophia, our organized home was littered with feeding supplies, the hair bows were replaced with NG tubes, and the only color coding was on the calendar to organize doctor and therapy appointments.
Fast forward two years, and we welcome a new baby girl, Emma. The life imagined was quickly replaced with our new reality. Parenting is messy chaos that is frosted with humor and sprinkled with a whole lotta love! Thanks for leaning in and sharing in our unexpected perfection. We hope it will encourage you and remind you that life never turns out quite like you imagined, and that, my friends, is the best part!
