In today’s world, families flourish in a variety of dynamics. We recently spoke with Samantha Seco, happily married mom to two, and founder of Bolt Training in Florida City.

Pink or The Blues?
I lay in bed next to my husband. Tears streamed quietly down my face, until choking them back became unbearable, and I began to sob.
Startled, he muted the game and turned to me. “Babe, what’s wrong?”
And I didn’t know until the words started coming out.
“I don’t know why I’m crying. I’m just so tired. I’m fat and feel ugly. We can’t have sex for 6 weeks, not that you’d want to anyways, I’m a cow. And my boobs are huge, but engorged, and I don’t know what to do with them. I’m just a factory, pumping all day, and bottling, and processing, and feeding the baby. And changing diapers, and rock-a-bye-baby, and bathing, and wiping, and zipping, unzipping, more wiping, and rocking, and Desitin I can never seem to get out of my nails. And then a knock at the door. And what ensues is worse than the loneliness I’ve felt despite being with this little person 24/7.
