This is my Life.
It’s nap time and I’m using it to write a blog entry. Nap time is coveted; I wait for it every day. Even though I love to play with my daughter, hear her silly, little laughter, and revel in her joy…. I love it when she’s asleep. I can get my chores done, work out, feed myself leisurely, even ::gasp:: take a shower. The opportunities are endless……. Today, I chose to write a blog.
I have nothing to share except the monotony of my life. I wake up, feed my kid, play with my kid, put her down for a nap, clean, work out, play with my kid some more, feed her again, play even more, feed her again, bathe her, and then put her down to sleep. And then sometimes I cook some more, other times I watch “Jeopardy.” I do this over and over.
It sounds boring, and at times it is, but I really do enjoy it. I was born to be a mom. Motherhood has its challenges, as does everything worthwhile, but it’s not all bad. Sure, it doesn’t offer pay raises (or even pay at all), a fancy office, a bathroom that gets cleaned by a staff (sigh), but the incentive is there. I mean, come on, where else would you get to clean up your boss’s shit… Several times a day?
All joking aside, I am blessed to have a child who challenges me, makes me laugh, loves me unconditionally, and reminds me every day of the innumerable joys the world has to offer. I am lucky enough to have a husband who takes care of us and loves his girls, too. I am rich with love.
I may not have my own company, or a fancy brand that turns my name into a world-wide phenomenon. I don’t have a fast-paced career or expansive set of degrees. What I do have is a little chaos and a lot of love, which is the perfect balance. This is my life, and I am content.

I sit and smile as I read… I love you and your monotony. We should all be lucky enough to get to have a FULL life. One day when your big girl head out into this big world (which will be far too soon), And when that day comes you know your calling. It is here, in your words. Your amazing lies in your ability to tell a captivating story whatever you are talking about, poo and all. I can’t express how nice it is to see what an amazing mother and woman you have become. It may sound silly, but as a fellow woman and friend I have seen us both grow into who we are supposed to be. I couldn’t be prouder to call you friend but really FAMILY! Love you and know you are never far from my mind ?
