I’m not a teen mom… but I’m not FORTY!

You know I feel as if I struggle to prove myself a young mother… but guess what, just because I’m not an “older” mother doesn’t mean I’m any less of a mother. Today I realized that perhaps I’m not a ‘normal’ young mother. I practice attachment parenting, I co-sleep, and I breastfeed…. I belong to mom-groups, and I attend parenting workshops. My husband and I believe in providing a safe, nurturing, and positive enriching environment for our children, and maybe not all young parents are as consumed in the well being of their children as we are.

I’m always apprehensive to divulge my age because it’s not typical to be at the level of maturity I’m at…. Allen on the other hand loves telling people how old he is, because he feels people give him kudus for being so accomplished at his age, regardless of what is expected of a 25 year old, I have enjoyed life! I got to travel, and I WANTED my children, I prayed and begged for my sons, this is the life I dreamed of. I knew I wanted 4 children by forty (lol), and I couldn’t be happier with the way things have turned out….. This isn’t for everyone but it was for me (and my husband).
As my blog states, I’m YOUNG, Married and Fabulous, but PLEASE don’t be fooled, I am a SUPER Mom who does it all, and will raise the most amazing children ever =)

Being the Mother of 10! Juggling the duties of many!

So a wise woman told me 1 is ONE, and 2 is TEN! And boy she wasn’t lying. Although my newborn is a very easy baby, very calm, and sleeps majority of the day I still can’t help but to be a bit overwhelmed at times. My pressure is self inflicted, as my children don’t realize that dinner is perfect, and the house isn’t immaculate I do! I have this desire to be perfect…. It is slowly becoming reality that I need to smile, take a breather and let go.

My boys will know when mommy is happy, and they will know that I took the time to read them a book, or go outside and play. So what to them if we don’t have empty laundry basket or mom’s nails are chipped? But rest assure that in order to keep a bit of my own sanity I will attempt to stay organize, I will use my time wisely, and I will juggle my family, household, and school duties gracefully.
