I wanted to quickly share some of my thoughts on things this week with a little bit of my actual thoughts… The other day I was having a casual chat with a girlfriend about how she has been documenting in a journal her experiences and baby milestones since the day she found out she was pregnant and still does almost 3 years later marking down with dates each milestone and happening of the day. I instantly felt like a super slacker mother because I have not done this for G!! I didn’t document much at all….especially the pregnancy part. I can recap it…I was fat, and always hot, and had wicked heartburn. You know, the highlights (ha)! And then the baby part was such a whirlwind I could barely remember to brush my hair, let alone write down what happened at the end of everyday?! I mean, I guess it made me think that I too would have wished that my Mom had done a journal for me when I was a baby, and she didn’t either.( i guess slacking runs in the family,HA!) Anyways, upon giving this subject great thought and feeling pretty bummed about it, something dawned on me. I write this blog for both fun and for biz..but mostly so that I have a place to document my life happenings. I didn’t write about my pregnancy, or my birth story, or even write about G as a baby and what she was doing every second (we took a million pictures instead)..but I do write about my life happenings here on this bloggity. My little girl (who just graduated preschool by the way!!!) will one day read back on these thoughts and things that I did during these times of my life and get a picture of who and what I was and am outside of being her Mom. We may have a day where she reads back and says things like “Mama remember this” … or she may read back and think I am super lame and try to pretend she doesn’t know me both are highly probable. Anyways, my friday thoughts on things for this week is…I don’t have a journal…but I have this here blog and I don’t feel that bad anymore.
I hope you all have such a great weekend soaking up the sun and drinking a beer-garita by the pool! I will be plugging away on wrapping up the work we have been doing with Lowe’s to spruce up my Mom’s cute new backyard (More on this Tuesday)!!
