Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a first-time mom and a writer, looking to join this community of like-minded women and connect the dots between our isolated experiences with humor and honesty. I'm young, newly married and a survivor from the working-full-time-away-from-home trenches. There were many days when I left my newborn for 15 to 18 hours straight, with no other option.

I have been blogging since...

In real life, I'm 23 years old.

Yes, I'm 23 and I'm a mother and I'm married and WHAT?

I know, I get it all. the. time.

"Wow you look so young to have a baby!"

"Yeah, I'm, um, 23."

"Oh. Yeah...well...you are young to have a baby."

"Oh my gosh you have a baby? You look like you're 18!"

And then comes the questions: Am I married? When did I get married? Why? Was it an accident? Are you working? Still… Continue

What I imagine goes on in my 9-month-old's mind:

Hm, lots of toys, lots of toys.

Let's see there's a round thing, a hard thing, and a - what the? - what's this squishy thing? And there's a...

Oh boy...

I think -- I think -- I just spotted something I'm not supposed to touch. It has a wire and a keyboard and a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor. Yep, yep, I know these things. Let's fire up this bad boy and...

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
