Nine Days Old

Hi, my name’s Brooke and I’m a mom. I never knew how proud I’d be to say that until I gave birth to the perfect baby boy pictured above on August 26, 2016, and then proceeded to cry tears of joy for a week because postpartum hormones are real. Also half-pictured above is my husband Calen. Calen took me on my very first date ever when I was 14 years old. I don’t know why I was dating at 14, but that’s neither here nor there (for the record, Jack won’t be dating till he’s 20+). Calen and I recently celebrated five years of marriage. No, we haven’t been together since I was 14. I like to think we parted ways for a few years so we could grow up without having to endure the memories and mistakes of each other’s formative years.

Some time ago, I started college as a journalism major but ended up in law school. I still practice law (currently on maternity leave), but my interest in writing never waned. Enter Mamahood, my little corner of the internet where I’ve combined my loves of writing + motherhood. Of course, I could do all of this in a private diary, but a private diary seems so 1994 (the last time I kept a private diary) and plus I have pretty bad handwriting.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll grab a cup of coffee (or three) and stay a while.
