A week in review.

friday sticky

I love spending time with other moms. It’s kind of ironic because when I met my husband, I had a thing against hanging out with other women. I think I felt intimidated by them. I was never the perfect size, the perfect hair, the perfect teeth, and I despised spending more than 30 minutes in the bathroom to get ready. In fact, as far as bathroom time, I still despise it, so much so that I have my hairdresser do my hair for special occasions- money well spent. I still feel all of the above feelings, just not as frequently, mostly because I am chasing after two kids, running errands, keeping a house clean (ok, well Lupe gets some of the credit), etc, etc. You know the drill. Chances are, you are one of my mom friends that is coming over here and reading this blog to get to know me better, or just out of pity. Anywho… I do. I love spending time with other moms. It is the best therapy there is. If with the right set of gals, you can get more inner peace than any therapy session. The opposite applies as well, but thankfully that doesn’t happen too often.

This week, I got to spend time with other moms almost every day. I made it a point to get out of the house. Even if only for a few hours. Does anyone else just think how crazy it is to get out with more than one child? I have friends who have more than two, and God Bless You. I don’t know how you do it. I’m still getting used to just the two. And I think that is part of it, and I think the other part of it is those baby blues. The ones that you can’t get rid for quite a while. A friend of mine recently posted a vlog entry about post partum depression, and I am definitely going to address that soon. It’s something that we don’t talk about openly.

I feel like I have re-entered the circle of moms. I exited it some time during my pregnancy with Stella. It feels good to be back, and it makes my life a little more joyful.

Choosing Joy.
