learn + grow + relax
Because, LBH… momming + adulting is confusing + overwhelming AF sometimes.
Whether we're trying to grocery shop on a budget for all the different food preferences of the fam, googling all the new responsibilities (“how do I stop overspending!?”), or just trying to decide on a dang montessori toy shelf the decision fatigue and exhaustion are real.
Let's navigate this whole #adulting + #momming thing together.
DISCLAIMER: This site is full of random thoughts, the occasional rant, and many typos. I do my best, re-reading and re-reading, but I am a one woman show.

My #1 reason for wanting to work for myself: freedom
my story in a nutshell
I went to college, got my B.S. in Psychology – went to grad school, got my M.Ed – landed my dream job earning almost $10k more per year than colleagues that had been there for two years – only to feel totally miserable. Sounds messed up, right?
I fell into a full on quarter life crisis; completely lost when it came to my future. In fact, I was such a Debbie Downer that I got fired for being so miserable to work with. Always the Type-A overachiever, the day I got fired, I landed a new job… only get fired again three weeks later (more on that here!)
After that, I decided to go into business for myself and ended up becoming The Confused Millennial for 4 years… earning 6 figures, supporting my family, and living my dream at the time. But after having my daughter, the name no longer felt right… I knew I needed to become The Confused Mom.
I'd worked with kids since I was 13 years old from babysitting to nannying to an ABA research assistant with children on the autism spectrum. I went to a Montessori school and worked with young adults struggling with addiction. I've had a unique background that exposed me professionally and personally to a lot of situations that made my transition into motherhood easier than most. I hope to share that perspective to make it easier for other confused mom's too!
