I’m in my late thirties, married, and a SAHM to a toddler. I’m also a foot soldier in the war called infertility so please excuse me if I sometimes sound a little crazy. Motherhood and fertility drugs will do that to a woman. I’m doing my best to find my way as a wife and mother. Much to my chagrin I’m not perfect. Don’t believe me just ask my husband.
I’m living my dream as a SAHM. I love my life about 98% of the time. (Hey, nothing is 100% perfect in this world.) Life with a toddler is never boring just hectic. I’m still trying to figure out how to balance motherhood with time for myself and all my responsibilities. It seems that most days by the time I’m done caring for and playing with my child there isn’t a lot of time for much else. Like most parents I worry about my child’s well-being and his future, and whether or not I’m doing right by him.
My husband is a hardworking guy who I met in 1999 at work. He’s the calm to my usually stressed out nature and the optimist to my pessimistic tendencies. He’s short and to the point whereas I’m long-winded and take many tangents before making the point. Family is important to both of us and we generally see eye to eye on how to handle our money. We’re opposites with enough similarities to make it all work.
I started blogging when I realized I had some things on my mind but not very many people to share them with. It’s also my way of doing something for me. I love writing, especially about my experiences as a mom, wife, and woman in today’s world. I hope someone out there can find something of themselves in my life.
The rest you can find out by actually reading my blog on a regular basis. (Yes, that is a shameless plug.)
