I really need to do this more. It seems that I always forget to do it...I should know better. I'm always telling my sons, 'Did you remember to do (fill in the blank)?' Why can't I remember to blog daily? Maybe because I'm so worried that they didn't do their homework, or clean their rooms, or get their assignment book signed, or even put their shoes where we can find them for the next morning. I'm so wrapped up in being a Mother, that sometimes(OK ,who are we joking) A LOT of the time I forget about me. But then again, when I got married to Ray, and had our first son, I knew what I was getting myself into. I never wanted to be a Doctor, or a Nurse, a lawyer, or a teacher. But I always knew from the time I was a little girl, that I was going to be a wife and mother. I didn't set goals like any of my sisters, or my friends. I remember in the first grade, (there were only three girls in the glass) and the teacher asked,'What are you going to be when you grow up?' The two other girls both said ' A nurse!' (which I just found out that both of them are.) She looked at me said 'How about you?' I said 'I'm going to be a wife and mother!'
She said 'That's it?' I said 'What to you mean that's it? Its going to be hard and challenging, I may not get paid in money, but I will get paid in other ways!'
So I guess yes, I could complain about never having anytime for myself. There is always something to do...laundry, dishes, giving baths(of course anymore, I only do the little ones),helping with homework,signing assignment books, breakfast/lunch/dinner...That's my job and I love it. I wouldn't change it for a million dollars......
