i’ve always wanted to be a mom. growing up, babies loved me. i was like a baby whisperer – could get any baby to stop crying. and it seemed so easy. i knew that i’d have no problems when it was my turn, and not to mention…i would be the coolest mom.
fast-foward 20 years and i am laughing out loud (lol) at that young naive girl. HAHAHAHA. what was i thinking? don’t get me wrong, i love my boys. wouldn’t trade being a mom for anything. but whoever said being a mom was easy (as in old me and several others i’ve met in my life), definitely had/have no clue what goes into it.
this. is. a. full. time. job.
no vacation days, no sick days allowed that’s for sure, and say bye-bye to privacy. my simple pleasure of the day is using the bathroom, just to get a little peace and quiet! that is, until one of the boys starts screaming in the background or the oldest barges in demanding Barney DVDs and M&Ms. yes – literally say bye-bye to privacy.
there’s more to me than just this role. i definitely wear many different hats, but right now my “mama hat” is the biggest and most prominent one. and it’s one i wear proudly. let the mama adventures begin!
