A Mommy Blog.
As the Ultimate Blog Party comes to a close, I have really thought about 38 and Growing. Where I started and where I have evolved with this little blog.
I was sitting here staring at my screen about to write the brilliant things that my daughter said to me this morning or to tell you about last night. The night wherein I was sitting on the floor crying after having put my daughter in time-out for the fifth time. Or taken away three of my son's dominoes (too long to explain -- basic answer, these are valuable commodities in our home!).
I was about to write all of that when I said to myself -- "Hey! When did you become a Mommy Blog?" Now wait! Before you run off thinking that I have a problem with that moniker -- I am participating in the 5 Minutes for Mom party after all. I love my kids. I love being a mom. I love writing about being a mom and hearing from other moms.
It's just that it wasn't how I started this journey. It was about me. Me. Me. Me. (Okay, that was obnoxious but you get the idea!) And that is part of being a mom. You give up a lot of your journey to ride along with your children on the most amazing journey of them all. But it is also, part of life for all of us. We think we know where we are going and suddenly find ourselves somewhere completely different! I guess I should have taken that left turn in Albuquerque.
So sometimes I am a Mommy blog. And sometimes I am not. Sometimes it is about me. And sometimes (read: a LOT of the time) it is not. But this is my journey. And as much as I sometimes would like to, I cannot extricate the Mommy from Me. I just have to remember the Me in the Mommy!
