I’m Shelby, a brand new mom to a bouncy baby boy, a veteran mom to two fur babies, a wife to my high school sweetheart, and a career-driven millennial
And those are just the main roles in the Broadway musical that is My Life (because that’s the kind of narrative it would be if I had a choice..). I wear many more hats; bookworm, yogi, runner, coffee snob, aspiring wino, artist, video game nerd, chocoholic, and lifelong gardening student – to name a few.
I heard once that as women we tend to define ourselves by our roles.
I’m pretty comfortable with my supporting roles, but this new mom thing… it’s a whole new ball game! It’s forcing me to be uncomfortable and learn things about myself I never thought were part of the script.
And that’s what this little place on the internet is for. Trying to get comfortable in the role of young working mom, and making it all my own.
