What in the… You guys. This is no joke. There are so many things. So many things you get told about what to expect for your postpartum recovery.

Looking at old photos of myself is a blunt reminder that any ounce of style or grace I now have was hard-earned. Every old photo evidences past mistakes: barrel bangs, blonde streaks, flannel shorts, head-gear, awkward poses. Throughout my cringe-worthy judgment lapses, […]
