About Me 

Welcome!

I’m so glad you found your way here.

This Is Motherhood, began in March 2014. At first I shrugged off the suggestion of starting a blog. Sure, I had been a writer in college, but who would care about my stories now? I was depressed; struggling with a difficult job and recovering from a devastating miscarriage. One night, I wrote a silly post about my hatred for a certain talking blue train, and when I hit “publish”, I felt better than I had in a long time. I was hooked and This Is Motherhood was born. Over the next few months, writing and making new connections pulled me up and helped renew my commitment to being a good mother.

I make a lot of jokes about my kids and about parenting. But one thing is always certain: I love being a mother and I love to write about it.

The lady behind the blog:

Britta Eberle, head shot

My name is Britta Eberle.  I live in rural central Vermont with my husband, our four-year-old son, Wolfy, and our one-year-old daughter, Ada. We inhabit fifteen acres and a farmhouse that we remodeled ourselves.

Here’s the short version of my life story… When I was younger, I lived an adventurous life. I spent three years traveling all over the United States and Australia; hopping freight trains and hitching rides. In college I studied creative writing and literature. While tending bar at a cafe shortly after college, I met my husband.  He was my customer and he kept asking for refills on his coffee even though it was 11pm.  As dorky as this sounds, I knew right away he and I would have an awesome life together. We returned to my hometown to settle down and start a family.

People who have known me for a long time are surprised that I traded in my wild life to be a stay-at-home-mother and a 1950s-style-homemaker.  But really, raising these crazy kids is my biggest adventure yet!

My writing has appeared in many places including Scary Mommy,  The Huffington PostMamapediaBLUNTMomsMom Babble, and Sammiches and Psych Meds.

Stay in touch!

The most rewarding part of writing this is creating community and long-lasting connections with my audience.
