It’s day three of the D-Listed Blog Hop. A huge thanks to Alissa of Mommy and Molly and D-Listed itself for her hard work this week! If you’re new here from the Blog Hop, you can read my welcome entry here.
And if you’re a new follower/subscriber and I haven’t followed you back yet, please, PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment and say “Hey…here’s my link! Come check me out!” I want to read what you have to say!
Okay, now that that’s all out of the way, let’s get down to business!
It’s DAY THREE of the Guest-blog-a-palooza for PPD/PPA Awareness. Y’all have no idea how touched I am by all of your comments and encouragement and kind words this week, especially yesterday as I told my story. Hearing from y’all has let me know that I was right to do this. That this is good stuff happening here. I’m so excited.
Today’s guest post comes to you from none other than the man behind the non-Supermom. Yes. YES, ladies, you read that right. My husband Dan wrote today’s guest post. I was kind of nervous to ask him to write it, so I squeaked it out between bites of dinner one night. And at first, he was kind of like “Uhhh…ummm….what do I SAY?”
Well, that’s the beauty of a guest post. You can say anything (unless given a topic, a la the Coffee Talk sketch from SNL). So I told him to say what he felt regarding HIS experience with MY PPD/PPA. What has it been like for him?
Here’s what you should know about my husband.
He’s incredibly smart. He loves to know “stuff.” If you can know it, he wants to know it. This is invaluable and frustrating. And one of the things I love about him, despite the frustration.
He’s a better writer than he thinks he is. His biggest fear was that he didn’t have the right sort of “voice” for this stule of writing. “I”m good at technical writing,” he says. “I don’t know if I can do this,” he says.
So, I said “You can do this.”
(okay…this conversation may not have taken place exactly like this, but he was nervous and I told him he’d be great. and he is. and he cooks, too.)
Anyway, without further ado, here’s my husband’s guest post. Be gentle.
