I am addicted!
It started with Serial and has blossomed into everything I can get my hands on!
I actually bought an app. If you know me this is a big deal! It’s called Pocket Casts and I love it! I can search for any podcast out there and I’ll find it.
I had no idea that there were so many to choose from, I have a list on TBLT (To Be Listened To) that’s as long as my TBR list for books. I think I might have a problem.
Anyways, I’m going to list some podcast for you guys in the hopes that you find them as entertaining, educational, thought provoking, etc. as I do. Continue reading “Do you #Podcast?”
I know that I’ve been a mother, technically, since the moment of inception but this post isn’t about that. It’s about my first year as a mother to a living, breathing, human-being.
To say that it has changed me and my world is a total and complete understatement. Of course it has, if it didn’t I would completely judge myself. Creating, growing and nurturing a human being is a life changing experience. It is always on my mind.
Am I doing this right?
Am I doing that right?
Why isn’t she sleeping through the night?
Do all her teeth have to come in at once?
Why don’t I understand all her cries and whines? Shouldn’t I know these things by now? Why do they keep changing? Continue reading “#Momlife: Year One”
I don’t have any ideas. I have no idea what to write about that might carry any interest. How many people will actually read it anyways? Life is so busy and hectic, who has the time?
I’ve thought about writing about how I feel after being a mom for a full year. Do you want to hear about it? I talk and think about my daughter all the time. She’s my golden moment, my bliss, my exhaustion. Nobody else wants to hear about her that much, and that’s ok! Continue reading “Head, Meet Wall….”
This is the first year I didn’t cry on my birthday! WOOHOO for me!
Last year it was completely hormonal when I cried off and on all day, I had just had a baby 7 days prior.
Maybe my mindset this year was different. I am a completely different person after all. I mean we all are but for me having a child changed something at my core.
It’s possible I was sad and overtly emotional each year but I knew something or someone was missing.
Either way, I’m glad this year was different. It felt really good to actually feel content and happy on my birthday.
I got to spend the morning taking a walk with my mom and daughter. I went for a pedicure with a good friend and spent the afternoon on the couch cuddling that same daughter.
My husband surprised me with a beautiful perfume gift box. It had the perfume, lipsticks, blush, sparkles, lotion and shower gel. Oh and a great bag to hold it all! I was truly surprised and happy to receive the gift, I knew he put thought into it. That’s what meant the most.
I also got some flowers, cupcakes and a card from my mom and daughter. That made me smile, my first present from my child. Granted, she has no idea she gave it to me or that it’s my birthday but whatever. I loved it!
Did I mention I’m now 35? I don’t feel 35, so does it count?
As I emerge from my first year as a Mom I decided to do something for myself. The plan was/is to develop a new hobby that would be about me.
