MamaGirl says…

My mother thinks I should write a blog. She thinks that my posts on FaceBook are hilarious. I think my life is pretty damn hilarious too, so after much debate (mostly, within myself) I’ve decided to give it a go and see what happens. I am a 32-year-old mother of two, a part-time Salon Coordinator, a beginning gardener and a general observer of the world. I don’t know much about any one subject, but do tend to have an opinion on just about anything that I’m presented with.  I don’t subscribe to any particular religion, political party or  child-rearing technique. I tend to just “go with the flow” and see how it all turns out. I make choices based on what is best for my children and my family. I’m not a hippie, an organic-freak, a home-schooler… not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s just not me. Frankly, right now, my only agenda is raising my kids day by day, moment by moment. I give my kids hot dogs, let them play video games & watch TV, they have toy guns and swords (No. They don’t look real) and probably a ton of other things that someone, somewhere isn’t going to agree with. That’s fine. Skip on to the next blog.

What you may like is that as with everything I do, I am honest to a fault and nothing if not real. I don’t sugar-coat very many things. A friend recently told me, “I sure wish I could have you call up the cable company and tell them off for me.” I’m that girl. I try to tell it like it is and make it a conscious point in my life to not take crap from other people. I have been described as a strong, confident woman and in some ways, I suppose I am. However, I often find myself unsure on a lot of things. I am regularly surprised by the fact that I am 32 years old. In my head, I’m still sixteen (okay, maybe twenty-one). The two children hanging off of me remind me that I am, in fact, an adult. So most of the time, I am attempting to walk a very fine line between the kid I am in my head and the adult that I am forced to be by the natural aging process. At times, the tight-rope gets blurry and I am somewhat prone to falling off, on either side depending on the situation.

So… I guess that’s me. Or at least as much of me as you’re going to get right now.  =)

    “The two children hanging off of me remind me that I am, in fact, an adult.” I feel EXACTLY the same way. I feel about 21 in my head too. But then I have a kid. And a job. And responsibilities. My mom tells me you will feel this way forever. She is 62 and still feels 25 in her head. She says it’s so weird to look in the mirror.

    • I had this time that I went through where every time I looked in the mirror, I was SHOCKED at this person looking back at me! I didn’t know who she was or where she came from. It does seem to be getting better though. I’m not so shocked anymore. I think that’s a good thing… maybe?

        Ha! Just wait until you’re 42! With every passing year now, I ask myself, “How did I get this OLD?!” Because like you, I don’t feel that much different than I did at 21. Smarter maybe, but definitely not 20+ older. That said, I think it is a good thing that our insides don’t age at the same pace as our outsides. It leaves the door open for more possibilities all throughout life. (Thanks for listing us in your blogroll, btw!)
