Protect Your Time

I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend.  Those things are my top priorities and they are not always in that order.  Typically I am a mom first which means I’m a boo boo kisser, a referee, a taxi driver, a tutor… you get the point.  Aside from those roles I am a blogger, a freelance writer, a wedding planner, and a member of an events team for a wedding magazine.  In addition to those responsibilities I am on the board of my daughter’s school PTA, I volunteer in her classroom weekly, I assist in the planning of two large events at her school.  I’m also a co-team parent for both of my kids soccer teams.  As you may gather from this list, I’m what is commonly referred to (mainly by me) as a stay-at-home-mom.  But my largest descriptor is someone who doesn’t know how to say no.

Did she get a facial today too?  Maybe she just got shagged… But how could she have done that in the barrage of crafts and outdoor adventures she’s been doing?

What motherhood Means to Me

What motherhood Means to Me

Yesterday, I spoke a little about my own mom, she was, obviously, my first experience with motherhood.  She is an amazing mom and a selfless person, she always has been.  I love her and am blessed to have her as my mom.  She’s fun, funny, smart, caring, compassionate, loving, an excellent listener, and a great advice giver.
