I have a friend and we used to joke that one day we would write a book titled, “You can’t make this shit up!” That’s basically how I feel about the life of a mom!
If I had ever dreamed that my days would be filled with saying… “put your penis away,” “why is there chocolate milk on the shower ceiling,” “who pee’d in the bathtub,” them I might have re-thought becoming a mom!
Not really, but being a mother is definitely an adventure!
I have three children; Delaney, who just turned sweet 16…(and whoever coined that phrase never had a hormonal teenage girl); Leland, who is seven years old; and Trevor, who is six years old. I have a beautiful step-daughter who has made me a grandma three times over at the young old age of 45.
Our family is a blend of his and hers, (our daughters)…and ours (‘our’ boys, who we adopted through foster care).
I look forward to sharing my experiences with you and to help all of you realize that at the end of the day…you can’t make this shit up!!
