I’m a horrible mom.
Not in the sense you are probably thinking. I wholeheartedly love my kids. However, I am not the mom that is able to keep up with documenting every sliver of growth/change/development. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always had good intentions…the follow-through has been sub-par.
So welcome to ‘The Frazzled Life.’ This is my attempt to document life for my kids. I’m being selfish. I want to be able to look back and be able to read about all of the “little” things. Yes, the big milestones are important, but so are the everyday goings-on. Life is moving so fast and this is my attempt to slow down and breathe during this hectic life of ours.
When A (my now, 7-going-on-15 stepdaughter) was a baby, I tried to document her early life into a baby book. Great intentions, but that fell to the wayside after getting through the first page where I wrote her birth day, weight, height etc. What happened to me? When I was younger I was all about scrapbooking. I am envious of all of you moms who are so diligent about keeping up with everything! How do you do it??
Today marks a change. Today my son J is 9-months old. The fact that this little being has already enriched our lives within nine short months is just astounding. So, to my dear boy, I will try to do better. Again, I started the baby book in between naps when home on maternity leave…but now that I’m back in the workforce, your book sits sad on the shelf.
And so folks, there you have it. The Frazzled Life.
