One week after having my baby, my sister Kenzie made me breakfast. She was visiting from the north to meet my little muffin. She makes this amazing baked blueberry french toast and I must have ate half a pan of it (seriously, I’m not exaggerating at all). My appetite was bigger than ever since I was breast-feeding.

This was not happening.
Some people, like me, have/had trouble adjusting with a new baby. Having my little muffin was the best thing that’s ever happened to me, but dealing with social appearances and hormones sent my confidence downhill. I’ve written up some confidence boosting advice I wish I had had.
People that don’t understand why you’re late, or why you’re not wearing makeup with a ironed outfit do not need your time. Continue reading “Confidence and Appearances with New Baby”
