Sometimes it's just so hard.
Before I was a mom a felt as though I FULLY appreciated my 'non-mom' status. I APPRECIATED the fact that I could go and have dinner with friends whenever I wanted. I APPRECIATED the fact I could pick up and GO on a weekend trip with moments notice. I APPRECIATED the fact I could run a bath and read a 'rag-mag' in bubbles while listening to Dido. I APPRECIATED my freedom to do what I wanted, when I wanted.
Yup...all SELFISH stuff (from a 'mom's perspective')....but it's ALL GONE..all the 'selfish' days are gone.
Now that my child is here and is 3 years old, there are days I just want to say ENOUGH ALREADY....I just don't want to BE "Mom" today!!!!! I want to be ME for, like, 2 seconds.
Ohhhhhhh......he just took my face in his hands and said "Hey....luv you Momma"....
Forget everything else I said......he melts my heart. Damn kid.
