Working mama life - I learned soon after Charlotte was born that this was a thing. Yes, I took maternity leave, but quite honestly, what does that look like when you're suddenly relearning who you are as a mom while running a company or doing work that you love? There's no such thing as completely shutting off so that you can adjust to life turned on its head. That's how I felt, wholly undone, unsure of who I was, examining my life upside down and trying to figure out how we got there. The constant tension - loving the sweet smell of her forehead, hating the exhaustion, desperately craving adult conversations, basking in the miracle of this tiny human - it all seemed endless.
