No matter what I do and how I try to live my life obstacles always come my way. I know that this is true of everyone but when I say obstacles I really mean the ones from soaps like Days of Our Lives. I married an amazing man who had two children from his previous marriage. I call them my little blond brownies and I think of them as mine.
Their mother hates me! And I mean if looks could kill I would have died a millions times and that’s being conservative. My husband and I are constantly at court being accused of one thing or another . We were accused of child abuse recently and haven’t seen the kids in a month. Today, we were scheduled for a hearing and although everything was unfounded and I should feel happy, I don’t. I left the court room and got into the car and started crying for my babies.
They are my babies and even I didn’t give birth to them, they are mine! I think of their overall wellbeing and how things will affect them. Going to court made me realize that we can’t help who our parents are. We can only cross our fingers and hope we get parents that will put us before themselves.
Everyday, I pray that all my children have what they need but I especially hope my blondies get what the deserve, a decent mom. I will never tell them what I think of their biological mother, I rather cut off an arm. I hope they learn what parents are really meant to do, love their children.
The excitement of buying a new home, oh yeah! I can picture myself in it and all the crap that I own with some room to spare. Ha ha, that was what I thought! As much as I love my new home, it really re-established my hate for moving.
Yes, I was lazy and I hired movers, how could I not with my household! So, let me tell you about me. When we bought our current home, we were a family of six. My two biological children ages one and two and my step children ages eight and ten. Then, there was my husband the biggest baby along with four dogs! We are one of the busier families that is for sure.
When we bought our home we looked at how we went to a house that basically double in size and each kid could have their own room. Have you met my family!?! I think I over did it with the amount of crap the kids and I own! I have been at my home for a month and I’m still unpacking!!! Don’t talk to me about moving, next time I might pay the movers to unpack!
Sadly, I can’t leave things in boxes, my mother who I named little Napoleon comes over to ‘help’. I love her but I would like one day to just sleep in and not see a cardboard box. Who knows, maybe I might see the inside of my eyelids for a few hours. Ugh, moving… I did it and as much as I love my house, I’m going to think long and hard before I do it ever again!
Modern Mommy… why did I choose this particular title? Truthfully, it just made sense. The word modern comes from the Latin word modo meaning just now. When I decided to my blog Modern Mommy, I thought of it more as the Just Now Mommy.
I don’t follow traditional trends and patterns all the time but I do believe that if it isn’t broken why fix it, my more traditional side. I’m a firm believe in the here and now. We can’t always look back on the past and as much as we want to plan for the future who know what it will be. So let’s be in the moment in the just now.
As to the Mommy part of it, I have been a Mommy for a while now but motherhood isn’t limited to the production of children, there are different type of mommies out there that nurture and guide all types of beings from those on two legs or more.
To blog or not to blog, that is the question. Times are changing and with the modern time so must I or else I will be left behind. Here, I am choosing to blog and what about I have no idea. So, I should start by answering the question. I decided it was time to bog because I am a modern Mommy that needs an outlet so why not do what millions are doing and enter the cyber world. No need to vent alone when there are others who are willing to read.
This blog is meant to be a collection of what is my crazy life. People will learn about my wildly stressed self and how my idiotic personality has led me to new adventures… For example, my growth as a person. This blog is meant to be my way of growing whether through adventures or the mess ups life has thrown. This is the adventure of a modern Mommy through the ups, downs, twists, and turns of life…
