Mommy Blog: Entry 1 --Happy to be back!!


About 5 years ago I started a very short lived blog.  Lily was a baby and I was, for the first time, experiencing motherhood and what it truly meant to be a stay at home mom.  Lily on her own was such an energy sucking, time consuming handful, when to my surprise, I found out I was pregnant with baby #2--oops!  Needless to say, I cried. Not tears of joy. Tears of exhaustion. Tears from an overwhelming fear of HOW?? When I could barely handle 1, HOW in the heck could I manage 2?! At 7 months pregnant our family made a huge (but very short lived) move cross country--leaving SoCal and heading to Virginia!  I was having such a hard time maintaining my sanity that the last thing on my mind was keeping my blog updated.

It was a very rough couple of years--as anyone with kids would know!

Our family income was cut by half. I was a mother of 2 under the age of 2. And, for the most part, other than my husband, I didn't have anyone to depend on for help.

Writing about it now reminds me of how difficult a time it truly was. I was exhausted from lack of sleep, physically and emotionally drained from all the in between.

It was a trying time on my marriage, my friendships and my family--those who not only couldn't stand with me but were wavering just enough to contribute to my fall--I had no choice but to let them go. Bluntly put; I had to cut the bullshit.  My life was hard and many didn't make it through the hard times with me. True colors were shown and the selfish and weak sifted through. On a positive note, the ones that mattered are still around today! I survived the madness and came out on the winning end with happy kids! Now that I have this tiny window of new found freedom, I'm so excited to start blogging again and I hope you'll stick around for each post.
