Yeah yeah husband schmusband

It’s an easy life being married, you know?  Aaahahahahaa, I couldn’t even type that with a straight face.  I’m 29, married and I’m a mom.  When the hell did that happen?!  Last time I checked, I was living the high life of a casual relationship, ok-paying job and parties that only ended at closing time.  I had no clue that by the age of 30, I would find myself living the glamorous life of stay at home mom, wife and part time worker.

I never take it for granted as it’s many a’ woman’s dream to do what I do, but some days, I’m not all that thrilled.  The being a mom to a toddler part is awesome and horrible all at the same time, but I wouldn’t change it.  The really big challenge in life is staying in love with the one person I got to pick to be in my life: the spouse.  I often wonder what conned me into a life of smiling, hugging, kissing, fighting, ignoring and loving this Noah guy.  He’s an alright guy but why him?

A lot of people pick someone who ends up being like someone they know and trust within their family or friends but Noah was like no noah and meone else.  He didn’t talk much, but when he did, I ate up every word.  We argued and said horrible things to each other, but nothing that ever pushed each other away permanently (obviously).  He means well to every one he meets and he is the most loyal friend you could ever ask for.  He respects me as a friend, a confidante, his wife, the mother to his child and overall, a human being.  He’s an excellent provider and always has our family’s best interest at heart.  We may seem awkward and uninterested in each other in public, but behind closed doors, we aren’t that put off by each other. 😉

While we argue, we never go to sleep angry.  We find our ways to effectively communicate and it will never be anything that makes sense to anyone else.  It’s kind of like twin sibling language.  He will always be my soul mate even when I feel like he could use a swift kick in the pants.  I try to remember that in all the bad times, they do not compare to all the good we have accomplished together.  Never forget how important your partner is as they will always be apart of your heart and soul.  Even in the sad days, angry days, happy days, yoga pants/not feeling so hot days, pushing out a child days or even the days of holding each other’s head over a toilet, there is nothing more important or supportive in your life than the one you got to pick to have in your life: husband schmusband.

And…it has officially been a hot minute

How I could ever forget that I had this blog is just astonishing.  I’ve missed you soo very much!  I really need to work on my ‘sporadic posting’ issues.  I feel like I’ve had a lot go on, but as any parent can say, it’s truly just the same crap happening over and over again and you just don’t know how to make it stop.

Since last we met, I became employed, I became a mom to a 2 year old, I’ve been working on losing some weight and I’m preparing myself for my first trip without my family.  Now, the employment bit.  I took on a position with my church, Fairwood Community United Methodist Church,  and I’m now the Communications Director.  My position there is new but I do a lot of familiar things like mass email communications, being a web admin, content creator for social networks and typically just advising on different marketing strategies.  It’s a part time job which I can do most of it from home, but it does keep me busy.

Yes, you also read that right: Mom to a 2 year old!  The child turned 2 on April 26th and I don’t know how that happened.  Last I new babyremembered, I was getting pampered after trying to crank out a 7 pounder of a child and then BAM!

birthday boyI have a toddler trying to burn down my house!  Other than all the typical stuff you understand a toddler will do, he’s just always making sure I’m completely and totally out of my skull.  But I wouldn’t change him or any of this.  He’s awesome, he’s perfect for us and he makes my heart want to explode with so much love.

I really don’t know where all this time came and went to.  I’m trying to keep my head together and keep moving forward, but I do get nostalgic sometimes for the moments I may have wished away too soon.  If you are a mom to be or new mom: Though the current time may seem hard, it doesn’t get easier so don’t wish it away.  You will want this quiet time more than you ever thought you would.

I’m still in love with the greatest man that ever happened to me.  Our 2 year wedding anniversary comes up next month and I can report we’ve been a hot item for going on 7 years.  Seriously, life happening in the blink of an eye.  I hope all of you reading this are doing well and keep a handle on your scandals!  Let’s do this again sooner rather than later!
