I watched Dinosaurs as a kid, and actually do not remember much except I do remember the baby yelling, "Not the mama", which is about what I echo each time I am out and about with the children that I have nannied in my life. I am not a mama, yet but I do care for the children I teach, coach and care for as if they were my own. So every time I say no I am not the mama, I am saying- but their mamas trust me to infinity and beyond with their kids and I do not ever take that lightly. I was chatting with a fellow nanny today and we decided we will make a National Nanny Day 😂
I struggle with mothers day because it is rooted into me deep that I want to be a mama. I want to be a foster mama and be able to stand in the gap as other mamas are working on things. I want to be an adoptive mama and take care of sweet babies ( what ever their age may be) who do not have family. I want to be a secondary mama to any children who are struggling.
I am sitting in front of my computer and trying to process through what I have to say about the past decade.

The best way to track a decade is start at the beginning.

My roommate and some of our suitemates blindfolded me ( which lead to me falling asleep) enroute to a place I had talked about so highly from when I was touring colleges- POPS 66 Soda Ranch! The thing is that these girls had never been there and it took WAYY longer than it should have to get there but it was soo much fun introducing them to POPS. That weekend I headed to San Antonio with my fiance to get our engagement photos.
I got married during my 20th year to the love of my life. We planned our entire wedding in 6 days after I caught the bouquet at his cousins wedding on January 3. …
I don’t lean well. I don't sit well. I don't slow well.
I am a power through girl- things are going to get done, no matter what. BUT... this year (2018) has to look a little different.
2018 will bring 32 years for hubs (Jan 7)9 years of marriage (Jan 9)30 years of age ( Oct 11)OH YEAH! and a baby no later than January 15th.
While it was hard to swallow not having a natural birth, we have a very breech baby and will be having a c-section on Jan 15th at the latest- you know because babies sometimes don't like being told when their birthdays will be and decide to bust down the water wall. So we shall see when BABY H will join our rankings within the next two weeks. BECAUSE of all of this...
I have considered a few different words to represent my goal in 2018. The first word that came to mind was slow- again if you know me, or have read any of my blogs = I don' t slow well, I am a get up and go girl. I think that there will have to be large doses of slow, especially in t…
