I've been fighting this battle for the past 6 months and thought it was time to share it.
Ten years ago, something happened to me, something that would change me forever. I became a mother.
I became one of those mothers who was determined to do whatever I had to do for the health and well-being of my children. Yes, I was the mother who chose to work part-time so I could nurture my babies even if that meant I couldn't have the biggest house or newest car.
Yes, I was the mother who chose to exclusively breast feed my babies for 3 years each to ensure their immune system worked the best it could even if that meant I would lose 9 years of sleep.
Yes, I was the mother who purchased organic, food, lotion and soap to ensure my babies absorbed the smallest amount of toxins in their little bodies.
Yes, I was the mother who stayed away from social media so I could be fully present in my children's lives instead of spending hours learning about other people's lives.
Ten years ago, something inside me changed. Instinctively, I would do whatever I needed to do keep my children happy and healthy, little did I know that in the year 2019, that would also mean being home.
