In the beginning there was a young mother of one, then two and now I am a young mother without her sanity. Oh, how I love my boys, but don’t get me wrong this is definitely not where I expected to be at the tender age of 22. I am enjoying the daily challenges of having a two and half year old and a two months old. Their huge similarities and differences amaze me everyday; there is nothing more amazing than a child learning about the world. So throughout my daily struggles I realized that my “supermom” ideals or “dreams,” I guess they could be called, where terribly unrealistic. “Mumfection”… that on the other had was attainable! It was what I thought was a perfect day, kids are fed, not terribly clean but manageable, my house probably a mess but both children in tact, healthy and happy.. see “mumfection.” Now of course this isn’t the first time I have used this beautiful word before, when I was not yet pregnant with my second I had managed to run and at home daycare to which I dubbed the name “Mumfection.”
Now back to business, I wanted to create this blog for a number of reasons. To reclaim my identity, to reconnect with myself on several different levels, and to make my short term goals more attainable. I figure letting the world know about my life would in fact help me improve myself.. who knows.. i’ll tell you if it works. I am happy to meet you, and I greatly look forward to speaking with you again about the many idiotic, trivial, exciting, boring things that I get up to on a regular basis!
