I am Nobody Special

Yep, I'm a mom. I'm a stay-at-home mom (SAHM). I'm a h.o.m.e.s.c.h.o.o.l.i.n.g. mom. I'm also a Pastor's Wife: newbie (under 5 years) pastor's wife.

There are SO many stereotypes attached to these labels and… Continue reading I am Nobody Special

Motherhood

My Very First Birth Experience

In the afternoon I took a walk outside by myself. Then, when Nick came home from work we decided to go to the park and play tennis. Yes, just like in the video...Nick and I played tennis for a good hour. Of course, my "playing tennis" was really just hobbling around trying to fetch the tennis ball and maybe hop a step or two in one direction to hit the ball back if it came close enough to me. At one point Nick said, "I feel like I am abusing you..." but it was my idea! I stopped and stood still every time a contraction came.

Family, Motherhood

My Faith and a John Lennon Song

Motherhood has been such a rollercoaster. I still don't really know if I have completely accepted the fact that this is my life. It all happened so fast and in the midst of many other transitions. It is hard work and it can be stressful and completely draining and exhausting. It seems like I will be doing this forever...I know it will feel like all of a sudden I will blink and my children are adults. Part of me is excited for that season, and part of me doesn't want it to come too fast.
