For the funny mom. The lonely mom. The wide-awake mom.
Hi! I'm Lizzie. Wife to Nate, mama to Betsy, former connoisseur of a good night's sleep. I'm so, so glad you're here.
Especially in the early days of Betsy-hood, it was so demoralizing to be awake for the fourth or fifth time in a night and have no new content to read. I depended on my phone to keep me awake and it felt like I had reached the end of the internet long before the end of the night. Blogs were packed up 'til morning, everyone else was asleep (not that I needed another reminder), and we joked that I needed a friend in Europe so I would have someone to talk to. I wish there had been a place like this for me to visit -- to read great things, find friends, advice and inspiration, and know that I wasn't the only one who was awake at that crazy hour.
You are doing great work. Crucial work. Holy work. Hard work. And we'll be right here beside you, from 11p-7a, making it just a little bit more fun to be up all night.
Technology isn't my strong suit -- and I'm a mama, just like you. Please be patient as I get this up and running.
