Are women who wear revealing clothes forced to “cover up”? Its absurd! Who wants to eat with a blanket over their head. This is a very important issue today, because breastfeeding is much healthier (than the alternative) for moms and babies. A healthier population means decreased health care costs. Breastfed babies have less allergies, are less obese, have more immunity to colds. People should be glad that mothers are breastfeeding. If a mother chooses to bottle her milk that is her CHOICE. Its at her convenience, we should support any parent who is caring for their child(ren). Isn’t that whats important the children. The rally today was to educate. We mothers have already made our choice, the state supports us and the federal government will follow and I hope you will as well. God bless.

My Two Loves

15 Apr

Days work is done. Kids have been bathed, dinner is done, baby is sleeping. I’m up as usual, thinking. Someone please tell me how to get my brain to go to sleep.

After another day with the kids and everything that goes along with that; I’m thinking of exploring other options. What does that mean?

Do I need to spend all day with my two children at home? Its not like we’re here learning mandarin; or working on Jr. Einstein science projects. Don’t get me wrong I am trying to step it up; we will be doing some art projects and we are having more story time. With Isaiah and Juliet its no cake walk.

Hey it could be worse. Like….

Working a minimum wage job; sitting down all day. Calling people begging for donations aka “fundraising”. Lying, being treated as a juvenile, HAVING to gossip with your bosses. Pumping milk in the conference room; being burst in on more than once.

Yes, this is the glass half full. This position I formerly held did offer flexibility, it was part-time w/option for full. More important, it was a laugh. Often we called it the “circus”. I could talk for hours about that job. Who wants a job?

I returned to work when Juliet was 5 weeks old. I missed her; I longed to spend more time with her. Here I am at the cross roads

A. I could continue to stay at home with the kids. At least until they enter pre-school

B. I could run away. (Joke)

C. I could go back to work.

I don’t want to leave the task of raising my children to someone else. I mean I wish I could teach them myself. Who really can train our children better than us, their parents. There is also the fact I really don’t trust anyone but their grandparents with them. Teachers, grandparents, and trust that’s another blog.

I do want a career.

I love to write, to film; to be creative. How can I merge the two? Guess I’ll just have to run away…….
(Joke)

Back to my hunt for the perfect career.

She's having fun

Five Minute Friday

If you met me….

Maybe you would say why is that smile on her face?
Her hair is a mess
Her clothes are wrinkled
There is throw up on her shirt
There are circle under her eyes
Why is she smiling

If you’d ask me I’d tell you why
Isaiah is my why
Juliet is my why
Two darlings I never dreamed I’d have
Yes they are such a responsibility
Even with the help God has sent me
Even with the extra patience Ive found

They scream and they play
They are loud an they disobey
But without them I wouldn’t be here
They straightened my path
Filled my heart with love and pushed out the wrath

I had to give up some things
To be their mom
No I cant be selfish anymore
Spend my hair money on pampers
Spend fun money on groceries
But all that I had to give up in my life
I didn’t need, Its so worth it
Just remember to smile
