That’s my new word combo of nervous and excited. Feel free to use it.
Why am I nervited??
Well….. Penelope, Charlotte, and I are one of the families chosen for the New Dove campaign for new moms. I don’t know too many details yet, but a photographer is coming to capture our lives for the next two days!
I’m not supposed to clean up too much (but I did cause my anxiety makes me do it – I did reign it in a lot though), and they don’t expect or want me to dress up or do make up and stuff. Just a real mom with her babies, doing what I would do on any other day.
I didn’t expect to be chosen. I entered us in on a whim, told my story of infertility, then loss, then depression after everything should have been “perfect”. I then told them that my story, sadly, is not that unique. It’s just that no one talks about people like me, and I really think that should change.
If I get to tell my story and it helps one person to feel like they, too, can share their story and struggles…. Well, then I guess that could be just effing awesome.
When I have more details, I’ll be sure to share them.
