Where the filters go away and the truth comes out!
How many times have we all heard this… “Being a mother is a full-time job” ? I remember being pregnant and having that be the slogan of my life. Every time anyone walked by you they felt that need to either rub your tummy, ask you what gender your baby is and say “Hey its a full time job, but so worth it”
Well what do you get when you take a mom job+ full-time job? Come on that’s like basic math right? WRONG! You get a mom who doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing every day and a mom who spends most of her days questioning both her mom life and work life. Did I also mention that you get a mother who has completely lost herself along the way?
Well here you have it Ladies & Gents… this is my life from the rainbow and sunshine to the bash your head into the wall moments. Raise your glasses to all the moms that feel that way and to the moms that just want to find themselves again!
Who is Jennifer:
Who is Jennifer? Does anyone else feel that is totally a loaded question? I mean how does one actually define themselves. Pre motherhood I probably would have described myself as being a hard-working Store Manager that loves to try new things and live life to its fullest. I probably would have described myself as caring, daring, and basically someone who just loves to go out and a have a good time. So now again who is the present Jennifer? I guess I am still trying to figure that out. As time passes I feel like being able to describe yourself becomes more difficult. Clearly at this point you know that I am a full time mom with a full-time job. I work in retail and absolutely love my job. When I’m not at work I’m at my other job as a mother to a rambunctious two-year old boy. He is defienlty the light of my life and the reason for me being but he sure does push buttons I never thought I had. With that being said let me just say this “Sorry Mom for being such royal pain in the ass when I was younger… I’m finally getting a taste of my own medicine. You win woman!”
And this right here… this is the reason I try harder everyday to be a better person. Not everyday is a win but you learn and grow more from the challenges then by just sitting down and watching time go by.
