Reality

So I know I didn't want this to turn into a mommy blog but let's get real now. I am a mommy and any of you who are mommies know that it takes over your life and there is nothing else to do or write about but being a mommy. Since I have no one to talk to all day except a 9 month old; whose only responses are gaga, lala, mama, dada, baba; all my meaningless ramblings will be presented here. After all, how much "yeah, you made a poopy!!" can one take? I am not complaining. I'll be cliche' and say it. There is nothing else I'd rather be doing than raising my baby.

I feel that so much has changed since I started this blog that I need to reintroduce myself. Hello. My name is Robin and I am a stay at home mom. Yes, this is my new title. And I have learned to wear it as a badge. It was certainly scary at first. I guess I was so afraid to lose my identity that I couldn't admit it in the beginning. I would say, "I'm in retail but I'm taking a break right now to stay at home with my baby". I always felt like I needed to defend my decision. You see, I never thought I would be a stay at home mom. I've worked consistently since I was 14. I honestly never thought of staying home as an option. Now it's my only option. I couldn't do anything else.

Right now I'm trying to get the little one to take a nap. It's not as easy as one might think since he inherited his fathers will to stay awake even though he can hardly keep his eyes open. It's like he's afraid to miss something. I never understood this. I could take a nap anytime, anywhere. Dreams are much better than reality anyway. So, bye for now.
