    Motherhood is what you make it.
    You don’t have sex after having a baby. Date nights are thrown out of the window. You lose your identity in being a mom, and you’ll only hang out with people who have kids.

Today, Adee is back to talk about some of those things, but through the lens of being 7 months postpartum.
    We talk about keeping your identity while also being a great mother, how motherhood has changed her marriage, how she and her husband navigate new responsibilities, and how they keep intimacy at the forefront of their lives.
    Enjoy!
