Hi guys! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Jenna, I’m a wife to Faheem, and a first time mommy to Tanner Jane (I’m also a fur mama to Denali, our husky, and our two cats, Phoenix and Cleo).
I’ve been saying I wanted to start a blog for the longest time. Finally, here I am doing it! I think its safe to say, I’m quite the procrastinator. What finally motivated me to start this new journey was the realization that being first time parents is NOT easy, (no matter what you say!!) but at the same time, it’s the most rewarding job anyone can ever have!
Faheem would be gone 2-3 nights a week, due to traveling for his job (let me stop my self there, I’m sure some of you reading this has got it worse, but for us it was extremely hard). So those 2-3 nights I’d be parenting alone. There were great times, but then there were the times where Tanner was fussy and wouldn’t sleep and would just want to be in my arms.
It really took a toll on both of us. Him being gone and not seeing his daughter every night (and his wife! LOL) and me being home with Tanner 24/7. When he was gone, I turned to Instagram to entertain my self. I would post on my Insta-stories how I couldn’t get her to sleep at night, and how she would cry for what felt like the longest time. I’d sip on a glass of wine, watch the baby monitor while listening to her scream and vent to whoever would listen on IG.
I was told from people I know and people I didn’t know that they appreciated my honesty and looked forward to my stories at night. When I met someone for the first time who told me she followed me on IG (she too was a mommy to a baby close to Tanner’s age) and was happy to know she wasn’t in this alone, that was it for me. That’s when I knew I had to start this blog.
So here I am, starting this journey of sharing my life with all of you and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m not perfect, hell I don’t even know what I’m doing half the time, but I think being a first time mommy, that’s ok. I believe that everyone parents differently, there is no wrong or right way, only your way and what works best for you. With that being said, follow along with me as I figure this whole parenting thing out by Mommin’ my way!! ♥
