Our daughter will be one next week and I’ve been a mess of emotions about it, the days are long but the year flew by.

I’m pregnant with our second child, and while I know that it’ll be a struggle to find a new normal, I feel more confident this time around. It feels less overwhelming than being a first-time mom.

My biggest challenge this year has been finding my stride as a working parent; somehow the days seem never-ending, but yet not long enough to tackle everything that I need to do. I really struggle with ‘mom guilt’ – the nagging feeling that no matter what I am doing, I should also be accomplishing something else. But, I love the chaos. Coming to work keeps me sane, and there’s nothing better than seeing her face when I get home
