So, why did you begin The Gratitude Project?
I started The Gratitude Project just after Bo was born. I was very aware of how there is a negative association with the work required when you have a newborn. People would tell me that the first three months are hell, say goodbye to sleep and make comments like "wait until she starts teething" with a knowing chuckle. Even when I was pregnant I was so shocked at how up front people are about the pain of childbirth, or how hard breastfeeding is. I completely understand everyone has their own journey but I don't feel it's necessary to focus on the difficulties.
