The Year I Became Both A Mother And A Sister

Not only did I become a mother this year but I also became a sister. After spending the last 30 years of my life as an only child and grandchild on my dad’s side of the family, I got a sibling. My stepmother, Sara, gave birth to my sister, Sloane, in September. And it’s been double the love, joy, and baby snuggles ever since.

I admit that I wasn’t thrilled when I found out Dad and Sara were expecting. But now that she’s here, I can’t imagine our lives without Sloane. I’ve written an article for Jax Moms Blog (my first contribution!) all about bonding with my new stepmother and my thoughts on having a sibling that is younger than my child.

Head over to to read the entire article.
