life sprinkled with joy about

Welcome to Life Sprinkled with Joy, a place where you can learn to embrace all the smiles, tears, smells, and messes that come with motherhood!

I’m Kelly, a new mom and fellow big baby birthing, pump-part scrubbing, night-time zombie rocking, and knock-down-drag-out nursing survivor.

Now that I’m eight months into my life as a stay-at-home mommy, I feel like I’m finally getting into a daily rhythm with my little one (a.k.a Squiggles).

But I’ll be honest, even though it was a struggle getting her here, I had no idea how much my world would be rocked when she finally arrived.

To say my life changed eight months ago is an understatement.

It’s as if someone dumped the contents of my previously me-focused carefully constructed world and filled it the squishiest, squirmiest, slobbery-est, cuddliest, most incredible life-giving mess I’d ever encountered. I felt like my life was just beginning for the first time.

It was amazing and wonderful. AND it was terrifying.

This new life definitely isn’t getting easier, but I’m embracing (or trying to embrace) each mommy-filled moment.

Because even though there are tough moments, I know that these all come with a sprinkle of joy.

Join me as we explore the highs and lows of motherhood – embracing and finding joy in EACH moment.
