Not just a Mommy.....

A lot has been happening in the last few months. First off I decided to do a little more for me. Don't get me wrong I love and adore my 3 kiddos and husband however being a stay at home mom is hard work. I found myself pushing things that I wanted to do to make me happy further and further down on my list of Things To Do.

After having my 3rd little trouble maker in June I had a long talk with my husband and found that I was sad that we just had our last baby and I was sad that I felt like I was loosing myself, I chalked it up to hormones and said be gone with it. Well the thought of having more kids were those darn hormones cause I now feel very complete with our family of 5. But the loosing myself still bothered me, I always worked since the age of 16 cause I loved my independence and I had every intention of going back to work after we had our first, then I saw my little princess and could not imagine the thought of not being at home with her. Everyday I thank God for how blessed we are that I can stay home but I still felt the nagging that I had to do something for me.

In the last few months I have done the following and am very happy to say I feel a lot better.

1.) I started this blog
2.) I actually went out to a girls brunch yesterday, I know moms gone wild..... over here
3.) I signed up to be an independent stylist with Stella and Dot

I found that by doing things for myself big or small it made me a better mommy and wife. Please feel free to comment I know I am not the only one who felt this way. I better go to bed a little guy will be crying for mommy in a few hours for his late night bottle. I have to admit as much as I love my sleep I cherish those middle of the night cuddles and smiles that are just for me.
