TMC welcomes Melissa, author of the blog Confessions of a Dr. Mom. The moment Melissa joined TMC and I visited her blog I immediately connected with her writing. She is another Theta Mom who speaks directly from the heart and continues to blog about topics that affect us all as women and mothers on this journey. She is as real as it gets and a supportive blogger as well so be sure to show her some comment love! Here is how she describes her blog in her own words:
“Hi! I’m Melissa, a part time Pediatrician and full time Mom. I started blogging in the spring of this year out of a need to write. I had always loved writing and unfortunately through the years, writing had fallen to the wayside. Enter Motherhood and my surprising decision to become a stay at home mom, I felt I really had some stories to share.
As a pediatrician, I thought I was fairly prepared for the logistics of taking care of my children. However, as all of you Moms know…nothing ever goes quite as planned. In the last five years, I have been surprised by co-sleeping, had my heart broken over breast feeding, and have had to learn to tune into and trust my Mommy instinct.
What I’ve learned through blogging, writing, sharing, and listening to our collective stories as Mothers is this: the journey through Motherhood is a long and windy road with various crossroads along the way. This road may take us in different directions but the destination is the same. We all strive to do what is best for our children. We all face similar parenting issues. What works for one child or one family will not work for everybody. We must listen to that instinct that we all have and do what is best for our own children and our own families.
This is the true beauty of Motherhood: sharing our stories, learning from each other, and supporting each other through this oftentimes difficult and yet beautiful journey. This is why I continue to write, blog, and share my own personal stories. And, it is also why I love reading the stories that you all have to share.”
