Is there life outside of Motherhood?
One of Stephanie's resent blog posts said something that really caught my attention. She said, "Eventually I'll think of something to post that doesn't have to do with my children." And my first reaction was, "well what else is there?" I haven't stopped thinking about this post, which I'm sure she didn't intend to be thought provoking, for days now. I've been racking my brain trying to think of something I did that didn't have to do with Motherhood. I couldn't think of a thing, can you believe that! Going out with girlfriends to lunch and such doesn't really count because we've got four to five little kids between all of us that still demand our attention. It took until tonight when I started scrapbooking for me to realize I do still have a hobby! What a relief! Mothering is great and wonderful, but wow it's nice to do something just for yourself sometimes. And while it's true that I'm scrapbooking pictures of Aliah, it's still MY thing you know.
