Can anything EVER be as rewarding as being a mommy…I wake up daily with this song in my heart. Loving my little angel more and more every second that goes by. She is 10 months old and I can’t believe in less than 2 months we will celebrate her first year of life!
Did I ever really know what love is? Maybe a little, maybe not even at all. Until the day I gave birth to my beautiful princess girl. Being a mommy can be tough at times. It requires ALLOT of your time, patience, care and responsibility but nothing can ever be as rewarding. I believe there is times we feel like failures and times that we feel like super Moms, all apart of the wonderful journey of being a parent!
Yesterday my baby girl had a visit from her daddy, which in the end was the “Perfect me time” opportunity, to get things done that I don’t normally have time for! As I drove away from the house the only thing I could think of was my little “babsie” and how I miss her already. Is it normal or is it strange…
So what did I do in my “me time”…LOL
Well first of all I’m proud to say I registered for the first time to be able to vote in the elections next year! Yes I know almost 28 and never voted before. Shy & Embarrassed to say the least but Oh well now I can 😉 and just “maybe’ my X will make a difference!
Then I decided to go to the mall to spoil myself with “something” ONLY to walk out with shopping bags filled with…what?? Clothes for my little one HAHAHA! Can you relate? Going to the shop for one thing walking out with 10 things but the 1 you initially went there for? I love buying beautiful things for her and to be honest I put her first every single time and will do so way before I put myself first! Ok ok, I did buy something 😉 a Nike short and training vest…
Can’t post it all but how cute is this:
First of all check out the Nike Shorts & T-Shirt – Isn’t it just adorable? As you know by now I love NIKE so believe she will to 😉 or that is what mommy will buy her haha! Then the LTD outfit next to it – The fabric is amazing.
Then…with summer here I decided to buy her a swimming pool and she loves it. Its so cute.
Then the not so fun part, or rather the more expensive part…It was time to upgrade the car seat and Oh boy this can get an expensive exercise! If things go on like this I might just apply for a second job and a third ;-)! BUT again seeing her smile and “appreciation” is priceless and once again every cent well spend!
She loves her F1 Car Seat that have 4 recline positions so from here she’s driving in style!
Core of my message: You are the best mommy or daddy to your little one. Although things might be overwhelming at times and the ‘me times” limited we are what they have. You were blessed with a child, a cousin, a friend for a reason and maybe just a season. So appreciate the ones around you and see the personal reward in everything you do.
Once again a productive and fun-filled weekend. Every day holds in something new…Never take one day for granted. Appreciate every second of every moment. Time waits for no one. You are like a gardener planting the foundation seeds in your child’s life that will flourish one day at a time!
So I received an email tonight about NaBloPoMo, have you ever heard of it? Well this was the first time I’ve heard of it *blushing* BUT if you knew about this then now is the time to give yourself a HIGH FIVE ;-)!
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. The goal of the NaNoWriMo project is where thousands of writers aim to complete a novel of 50 000 words by November 30th / NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month.
So first things first I’m definitely not a novelist or writer by profession so I would rather stick to the 30 Days = 30 Posts idea?! So what do you think, will you join in on this challenge? The challenge is to post once a day for the entire month of November. I personally think this is a great way to get started or to “fire up” your passion for blogging, or just to get you back to blogging if for some reason you neglected posting for a while (that’s me)!
If there’s one thing creative people agree on it’s that the more you do something, the better you get at it. If you want to be a better writer, you have to write; if you want to be a better blogger, you have to post. And one way to break down the barriers between thinking about writing and actually doing it is by posting every day for a month.
Don’t put pressure on yourself to post the perfect post, just get started and be YOURSELF. Write about the things that inspire, challenge or interest you. Easy as that, no rules, no guidelines, just you and your creative mind speaking to the “bloggers” world ;-)!
So if you decide this challenge is for you then join NaBloPoMo and Add Your Blog to the 2013 Blogroll Now – http://www.blogher.com/nablopomo-november-2013-blogroll before November 5th, make sure you are added to the official blogroll and remember to tag your posts with NaBloPoMo so other WordPress.com bloggers can find you.
