I mom. And I am pretty good at it. Seriously, how often do you realize that you are good at what you do? I’ve got a list of things I cannot do, but I’m thinking about the stuff I CAN do. It’s a much shorter list, but at least I have a list!
Now, I’m no mom of the year. In fact, there are a few momming duties at which I suck. Like, nutrition, discipline, organization. Take today, for example. Today is conference at one of my son’s school. And I absolutely, totally forgot to sign up for a conference time slot. I’m a full time mom. How does this happen? Full disclosure: I also forgot that my son didn’t even have school today until last night around 10:00 last night. Here’s the silver lining: that’s also about the time that I realized I need to be writing again. Just for me. If anyone is along for the ride, that would be super cool. I would LOVE for you to join me.
I stopped writing here almost 2 years ago. Actually, I stopped writing and “publishing” two years ago; the writing never really stops in my head. It’s awkward to start things and stop like I do. Does anyone else do that? It feels uncomfortable when kind people ask “what happened?” or “when will we see your next post?” Those questions are genuine. My answers are also genuine…but lengthy, winding, deep. Are we ready for that?
I’m not sure how to answer with truth and honesty in a way that doesn’t hurt others. I actually am just testing the waters today. Putting my toes back in. Trying to see if there is any life left in this keyboard.
