I’m Natalie and my life is really amazing in many ways, it is also kind of a giant mess. The past four years have been truly insane, what with a series of unrelated, rare, and debilitating medical problems and transitioning to the life of being a stay at home mommy to two beautiful but exhausting twin girls. Hence my title- My Super Crazy Life, because my life is Super, Crazy, and sometimes SuperCrazy!
I am married to a wonderful man whom I’ll refer to as Sebastian (the loveable but very overprotective crab from The Little Mermaid) and we have really cute and hilarious twin 2 and a half year old girls. Although I think they look completely different, the easiest way for other people to tell them apart is by their hair- the reason we call them Flopsy and Curly.
I also sort of accidentally started a non-profit that provides free childcare to stay-at-home parents going through a health crisis called Mommies In Need. I also have a small business as a Jamberry Independent Consultant that I am using as a way to raise funds for Mommies In Need. Because I didn’t have enough to do…
So all aboard the SuperCrazy Bus, next stop Crazytown! Choo! Choo! (sorry about that last bit Thomas the Tank Engine is going on repeat for the girls so I have a chance to write this!)
I’m dedicating this blog to those people who are going through a tough time- because of medical reasons, depression, anxiety, adjusting to parenthood, or whatever it might be. You can get through it. There have been many moments in the past few years when I did not know how I would keep going (for example when I found out about my thyroid cancer two days before I was going into the hospital to have my colon removed!) But somehow I did. I attribute that to my loving family, supportive friends, an internet community that helped me not feel alone in my pain, and my sense of humor. I truly believe that laughter is the best medicine, well that and Xanax!
