I never knew......

Today I decided to play along with Mama Kat's workshop. Of course I chose the prompt about being a Mommy.....

List 10 things you never knew until you were a mom.
I never knew........

1. true unconditional love

2. I would say some of the same things that my mom used to say

3. How much fun it would be to play Santa/Easter Bunny/Tooth Fairy. I LOVE it!

4. That looking at your child and being happy could cause you to cry. Happy Tears!!

5. you could live life through someone else. M's spirit is so catching and makes me feel alive and child-like at times.

6. I would become less selfish. M comes before anything and I love that feeling.

7. that I wouldn't mind cleaning up after her when she got sick or rocking her like a baby even though she's 8 yrs old just because she doesn't feel well.

8. That every decision I made/make from the day she was born will also affect my baby girls life. This one is hard for me!

9. I am shaping an adult and that scares me sometimes!

10. That I could be mad at little kids over them hurting my baby's feeling. Yet I hide it and give M the tools she needs to work through her friendship problems. Who knew little kids had drama?

I love being a mom.....the good, the bad and the ugly.

Back by popular demand.......

I know you have been wondering where I've been and what I've been doing. The curiosity has been killing you, I realize this.
(ok, so it was only 2 people who requested I blog again, lol)

Hmm what's new with me? I have only blogged once since Christmas and that was about Spam. exciting stuff right there!

The last thing I talked about was my step daughter wanting to live with us. That took some horrible wrong turns and was a huge roller-coaster ride for my family. We just wanted what was best for her.....her mother pulled some tricks and has forever damaged the parenting bond her and The Husband had. They had never had a 'fight' over the kids before. It was great to have it happen over the holidays. This past weekend the other step daughter said she wanted to live with us one week and her mom the other. We aren't even telling her mom about it. These girls can't go back and forth and need to realize what they are saying. People get hurt over what is just simple words.

Enough of that. I've lost 8lbs. Yay me, right? It only took me 1 yr. lol The wii fit has a graph that I decided to look at last week. I went back to last January and saw the loss. I was very happy. So happy I ate McDonalds that night! Seriously though, I'm not even trying to lose weight now. I dont exercise but I have cut back on my soda. I used to drink 2 per day and now I only drink 1. I think it helps that I'm not sitting at a desk all day snacking away. I did that a lot when I was working.

Speaking of.......I am very hopeful that I will get a job soon. We will talk more about that later though. I know you can't handle too much of my words after not having them for a month.
