Who am I? I am a mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, physical therapist, runner, probably forgot a few. I am pretty sure I am not a grandmother yet. But really, these days I am mommy. Mommy up, mommy down, mommy juice, mommy cracker. Mommy, mommy, mommy all x 2!! It is wonderful, exciting and exhausting. Someday I know I will be able to identify myself again as a runner (hard to do these days at 30 weeks pregnant!) and a physical therapist a good friend, wife, sister and daughter. But now my primary roll involves two little beings who are incredibly cute, funny, needy and a bit bossy! But each day they surprise me with what they can do, what they understand, the new words they learn and their wonderful laughter.
I am learning that as wonderful as mommyhood is, taking a little time now and again to just be me is essential to being able to be the mommy they think I am. So it is my goal that sometime in the next few weeks I will find time to file my nails rather than just cut them, comepletely dry my hair instead of just my bangs and maybe even paint my toenails!
Here's to all the mommys out there!! Go be yourself for a little while!
