Wanna know the truth? I don’t have a clue either. Seriously, I’m taking it one day at a time just like you are. None of us have a clue when we jump into this motherhood gig. But don’t worry, mama. We’re gonna figure it out together!

My name is Kayla and I’m a mom just like you. One day I all of a sudden found myself responsible for another living, breathing human incapable of any kind of self-preservation. Nothing before or since has ever made me feel equal parts lost, determined, clueless, accomplished, and over-the-moon in love like becoming a mother did.

I’ve been many things over the years – librarian, teacher, fur-mommy – but none of those prepared me for this role. This is the ultimate, no-cheat-codes-available, learn-as-you-go job. You cannot prepare, you will never feel prepared. Trust me. I’m a researchaholic (librarian, remember?) and had read all the books, pamphlets, studies, and whatever else out there – none of it prepared me for the moment I help someone else’s entire life and well-being in my hands.

But I kept going, and you will too. I sincerely hope that the next time you’re in a full-blown panic attack over something concerning your child (and we all will be repeatedly for the rest of our lives), you are able to find comfort, inspiration, or maybe even an answer in a piece of my content. If this helps even one of you, then I’ll consider all my sleepless nights of panic-fueled marathon research worthwhile.

Don’t worry, mama. We got this.
