"When I became a mom to my two beautiful daughters, Poet, 6, and Jagger, 4, I saw other women who looked like they really had this grown-up thing down. All around me, they would open their strollers with a flick of the wrist, not a hint of spit-up on their clothes or baby vomit in their hair. I stared at them in complete awe, wondering if there was a secret manual I had somehow missed. That's when I turned to Twitter and Facebook, and found a whole group of people who felt just as clueless as I did--and the more I talked, the more they opened up about their own messy moments.I found comfort in documenting the "happy chaos" on my website, moonfrye.com, where I post about the worry, uncertainty, joy, and excitement of everyday life for thousands of women who, in turn, share what they know with me. I'm excited to pass on some collective wisdom. Got a problem? Let's work it out--together."
