The above description seems pretty mundane when I look at it. But, I guess that is me in a nutshell – a mundane description of the best that life has to offer.
Fifty Six plus years ago, I decided to be born. My parents had a little to do with that too. My life journey has been boring, exciting, fulfilling, frustrating, and heartbreaking at times. Nothing special – I am not an Olympic Athlete or a movie star or a model. I am just me – I could be you. I was blessed to have the opportunity to be a “stay at home” mom. I gladly gave up (or wasted as some have told me) my short nursing career. Five years working towards a Bachelors Degree in Nursing ended with me being a full time mom. See, when I do things, I generally put everything I have into it.
I would like to think that I have raised six of the most amazing people in the world. They each challenged me in their own way. I have often thought of myself as a bit of a schizophrenic in raising them – I had to be six different people because they were six individuals with unique needs. The seventh child was “adopted” by our family as a teenager. If you think parenting adult children is easier than the little ones you could not be more wrong! I do more parenting now than I did when they were toddlers!
I started this blog with the hope that I can share stories, information, and support to anyone who is parenting. By telling you about my journey, past and present you may start to believe that you are not completely crazy! Being a mom is the toughest job in the world and one of the most important! It is also one job that is all “on the job” training, sleepless nights, no pay, no vacations. Who wouldn’t want the job?! It is also the most rewarding job you may ever have from start to finish!
Let the “momsense” begin…
