My name is Erin, and I’m a wife, mother, blogger, self-proclaimed Slytherin, foodie, and horror-hound. I may have started motherhood later than most, but it gave me time to enjoy and fine-tune my geekery before starting to impart it on my son, Luke, who was born at 26 weeks gestation. In a flash, I went from being knee-deep in the finance-world to building playpens and changing diapers. As a stay-at-home mom, I’ve learned life lessons that no amount of schooling or 40-hour workweeks can provide. I share these experiences on my blog, where I aim to inspire and calm new parents and aid NICU parents that are dealing with the same challenges I faced. I’m offering a glimpse into my world of chaos and love in hopes that others will feel less overwhelmed or alone.
