Happy Flash Back Friday! In honor of this weekly tradition, I dug out this old photo (circa 1981ish) and am sharing a little about myself on the blog today.
Can I just say - I'm really happy its the weekend! As a SAHM you'd think every day was like the weekend. But mostly every day is like Tuesday. Someone comes into my room way too early, pries my eyes open with their little finger nails, and either stands in front of me or sits in my lap while I go to the potty. Then we head downstairs for some milk and I start the turkey sausage. And these littles have had me playing musical beds all week, little h has been waking up super early and taking cat naps (instead of the two hour naps I dream of…).
Can I also say - mama is tired and I need a break. As evidenced by the long and awkward hug I gave the baby sitter today (subsequently, he slept for 3 hours for her after I left:-/) But I digress...
I'm mostly a Stay at Home mom. I have a hard time saying that. When asked, I usually rattle off all the projects I'm involved in/working on… Even though when I was last working full time (Pharm Sales when the munchkin was about a year and a half) I used to pray every day that I could find a way to be able to really hang out with my munchkin after school on the play ground instead of rushing back to work. I used to joke when I was in graduate school that I wanted to be a Stay at Home Mom when I finished the program (I went on to do marketing project management for a few years before munchkin came along) I didn't know just how serious I was (and neither did Tony…).
Although I have two business degrees, I'm most happy when I'm being creative. Writing, making, crafting. I was voted Most Talented in high school and I worry every day that I'm not living up to that potential. I know thats silly and that was a long time ago but my goal
With that said, I'm also I'm a mommy blogger. Another thing that's a bit hard to admit. It sounds so… well... meh? Like, "Say What?" Well, I like to say a Family Lifestyle Blogger.. better ring to it eh? But you know what, I'm in my mid-thirties (another little nugget) and Its time for me to start embracing what ever life has for me in that moment. To be proud of who I am, my past and my present and to be grateful for every stage of my life...
So that's me in a nutshell.. I'm blogging, planning parties over at Bailey Blue Events and Design a company I created with a grad school pal, and turning the munchkins book club into a monthly membership box filled with books and other goodness for little girls everywhere, oh and hanging out on the play ground with my munchkins every chance I get.
p.s. This little monologue of mine is part of a 30 day (#justblogit) blog challenge I joined. I'm going to give it my best shot. Trying to build some good habits here. Hope I don't ramble on too much. Hope you'll stick around for the journey.
