Becoming a Blogger, My Next Big Adventure!

Hey y’all! I’m so excited to be joining the blogging world! I’ve thought about becoming a blogger for a few years now and it’s really been on my mind after seeing Mom’s Night Out … I wanted to be a blogger, a Mommy Blogger! I’ve finally bit the bullet and thought it’s now or never! So, here I am!

Life really is dashing by at lightning speed now that I am a mama to not 1, not 2, but THREE wild, crazy and rambunctious sweet precious angel boys. Mr. C and I have truly been blessed with our three boys. C is 5 going on 6 (like in less than 10 days), preparing for Kindergarten Graduation next month and I am already having flashes of the future seeing him walk the stage with his PhD. M, our spunky/feisty/independent middle child, is turning 17 months [tomorrow] and he’s ready to move mountains. O, our current caboose, is 3.5 months and he’s as fussy as they come with a smile that will melt your heart away.

I’m learning daily that being a mama is a tough job. I mean like the hardest thing I have ever done, ever will do, and ever want to do. Sometimes I try to fake sleep so that the kids will leave me alone a little longer but I know that won’t work forever, especially once the two babies can get out of their own beds. Sometimes I get something to eat and run the other way when I hear footsteps coming my way. I was given this mothering gig at the tender age of 20 and had no clue what I was getting myself into. Now that I’m closing the doors to 26 [yes, I just revealed my age, no shame to it–don’t ever ask], I still have no clue what I’m doing even though I’ve added two more to the mix. Each day brings a new challenge, like a run with the bulls, a joust in Medieval times, American Ninja Warrior mom-style, going to the grocery store or getting everybody in the truck minivan. We are finally starting to get adjusted to all these kids but we seriously barely make it hour by hour sometimes!

A lot of my friends say I look like I have it all together since we look good on Facebook and Instagram…but the truth is I’m growing as a mama every day. I don’t have it all figured out, I have a TON of help from my family, I make more than my fair share of mistakes [I’m sure I’ll be blogging about them soon enough], I have numerous ups and DOWNS throughout the day, BUT I know that I was given this gift of motherhood by my Creator Himself and that alone is enough to keep me going! Life is perfectly imperfect over here.

Hubs says I need to add in a real life event/story to my blog so here goes… We can just say that today was probably one of the scariest days of my life. I was running errands when I got a text about 10:40 am that I need to get C from school, I was at the doctors office talking to a friend when she asked if I had heard about the bomb threat at a few of the local schools during that exact thirty seconds. One school mentioned was the district my baby boy, my firstborn son attends. There was a bomb threat. A freaking BOMB THREAT to [elementary] schools. I flew to get him, driving as fast [but safe] as I could to ensure his safety and that if that bomb went off his mama was going to be there searching desperately for him. So many thoughts raced through my mind as I drove and as I pulled into the parking lot to see pure chaos of cars weaving in and out as parents rushed to check their kids out of school. If it weren’t for C’s teacher telling me “Everything’s Fine” through text and Mr. C’s former partner with the Sheriff’s Dept being the School Resource Officer today then I’d probably have run inside to pull C out of class as well. I calmed down and was relieved upon hearing the campus was free of danger. I regained my composure and waited for his class to come to carpool line and once I saw his messy blonde hair and dark brown eyes I sighed the biggest sigh of relief. I hugged him about fifteen times and he just wanted me to stop because he was “hot and tired from walking down that hill.” He does not know why they got out of school early. I hope to keep that detail from him for a long time. To keep a little bit of his innocence towards the hatred in this world. Thankfully, it began thunderstorm-ing about an hour later and I asked him if he was going to keep me safe because I was really scared. He quietly and calmly said [while riding in the buggy at Walmart, barefoot because he was sitting on his flip flops, looking at his new cactus plant he hopes to grow as big as himself], “you don’t have to worry mama, it’s just God beating on his drums, you don’t have to be scared.” Life. Lesson. Learned.

Any who, enough of my story telling before I can’t see through the tears, I plan to use this blog …my Mommy Blog {eeeeeep I am so giddy over this!}… to share about different things we do throughout our day to day lives, DIY projects, recipes we enjoy & whatever else may cross my mind!

Thank you for stopping by, please be forgiving if I have too many typos or if the page looks wonky…remember I JUST became a blogger, like, today.

*BIG DEAL ALERT* Mr. C just proof-read this for me and says he CAN’T WAIT for my next blog post! [Who cares that shortly after he made that comment he said he was joking, but I know deep down he was for realz.] Until next time…

      Thanks so much! I’m realizing it does take up a little time, but no more than I’d normally be on FB or IG or Youtube watching funny animal videos! If you ever decide to start one definitely let me know!!
