My name is Brittany Gabrielle. I am 27 years old. I love to have fun, cook & eat (i’m a major foodie), go to happy hours with friends, and work out. When I’m not working, I spend a lot of time at home, with my boyfriend of a little over a year. Oh, and I’m a first time mommy!
Most of my adult life I’ve wondered, when will I feel like an adult? Like a REAL adult. I graduated from Howard, I work full time, I pay bills, but most days I feel like a girl still trying to figure it all out. Adulting is hard, and honestly, there are many days I want to go home, drink a glass of wine, build a fort, and color.
Well, the day has finally come. I recently had my first child, my son, on 1/7/17 at 1:17pm. He is phenomenal. In the month since he has been born, I have begun to see myself transform. From finding our I was pregnant to natural labor; from breast feeding to phantom cries; several times a day, I find myself saying Omg! I’m a mom! For example, I’m currently pumping while writing this. Omg! I’m a multitasking mom!
I want to document and share my story as I transition into parenthood and adulthood, or as my boyfriend so kindly pointed out today, my transition into MY mom.
