Ok, so if anyone has ever rebelled against the whole wife, mother,stay at home thing…it”s me.
So of course guess what…I am all of the above! (there is one more title that fits me that I can’t out myself about) (so if you know, keep it under wraps ya heard.)
Anyway, I am getting used to this new life. Although at times I fail miserably, I find myself somewhat relaxing into these roles and understanding and appreciating these roles.
Being a mother, wife and stay-at-home parent(sort of) is the most important role ever, people. I feel that I am constantly setting the tone for our lives…really. All you MOM types know this already. But my recent personal discovery of this fact has brought a new light to my life. I feel that I have this “thing” handed down to me that enables me to BETTER my family.
Think about it.
I can say…we need to excersise more…and poof… we’re all biking and hiking and running…it happens.
I said, we need to go to farmers markets and support local…poof happened.
I said, recycle, let’s find lots of fun ways to recycle, reduce and reuse…what do you know..happens.
These things are happening in my family becouse of my commitment to BETTER us and Matt and Lily follow. Granted most of this was sort of happening anyway, but now it’s a way of life.
SO this week I am going to be prepared. Lily starts school tomorrow. Preschool.
But i am going to be prepared for every day the night before.
Again…I know you have already been doing this for years. But it’s a new thing for me. I prepare for big things like, trips, shows in downtown manhattan, tours, dinner parties. I have not got the hang of preparing for daily things.
Us mom types set the tone for our families. Think back, who was the boss of you when you were growing up…MOM.
So now here I am. I am the MOM. wow!!!
So I am committing to a better me. for a better us.
