This started as a “mommy blog” from the start. I began it with the sole intent to write about my life as a mom and about my sons’ daily lives.
I’ve grown a lot since then, and For me, the things I thought I wanted/had to be changed. I once imagined that if I just tried harder, planned more, and forced myself into it I cold be the perfect little mom. But that’s not me.
I love my kids, I’d do anything for my kids. But as I creep closer to 30 (shhh, I didn’t just say that), I’m feeling more comfortable not being a perfect mom. I’m feeling more comfortable putting myself sometimes. Tossing out the color coded house organization binder (yes, I did that) and relieving myself of daily craft hour. It’s OK to leave the kids with their father for half an hour to drink overpriced coffee and unwind! It’s OK to want to read my book more than I want to read The Very Hungry Caterpillar for the thousandth time! And it’s OK to go to a clothing store and buy myself something rather than the kids every stinkin’ time!
And so, since this blog began as my attempt at mommy blogging, it only seems fitting to shed it along with all my other layers. I want to explore my life, not just as a mother, but as a woman, a dreamer, a human. I want to find myself.
