About me // Colleen Esposito
A Bell Curve is a mathematics term for a graph that forms the shape of a bell, with a rounded peak tapering away at the ends. The image of the Bell Curve reminds me of the fact that life has ups and downs. Which is exactly what this blog is about: the ups and downs of motherhood. The peaks and valleys.
My oldest daughter, Belle, was hard won so to speak. She's been throwing curve balls long before she was even born. And since she came into the world, I've just been trying to keep up. She is a force of nature and the peak at which my whole motherhood journey began. And then along came Rosie, her baby sister, who tries equally as hard as I do to keep up with the The Belle Curve(s). So it's a daily shitshow. It's beautiful and messy. It's my life.
Sometimes I swear. Not because I wish to offend anyone or because I was raised by heathens, but because I believe words are powerful tools of expression and sometimes you just need a good curse word to really get your point across.
I love coffee and cheddar popcorn. I love to sleep and I hate to be cold. About halfway through my maternity leave after Belle was born I decided not to go back to work. I left the PR and ad agency life for the super-glam world of stay-at-home-mom-dom and never looked back. (That's a lie, I look back all the time and day dream about taking the train to work and conference calls and meetings that last 3 hours and traveling alone to exotic lands like Chicago and NYC.)
*This photo is not what I look like on a regular day. Leggings, scrunchi and a grey hoodie is my everyday uniform. But on a different day, with excellent hair and makeup, I looked like this. So let's celebrate that.
