First off I’d like to say how much I love my kids . . . I could not imagine my life without my two . . . and my heart also longs to meet the one I miscarried in heaven someday . . .
To many, kids seem like a lot of work and interfere with whatever life goals they perceive as important at the time . . . Yes, they do take time and effort, but anything worth doing takes time and effort. As far a interfering with life goals . . . They are my life and I wouldn’t change my life to a life without them for a second. We’ve had our ups and downs and challenges, and I am sure many would love to give input on how we are doing it all wrong, but many would also tell us our kids are pretty amazing too. I know it sound so cliche, but I love them to the moon and back and beyond . . . but honestly there really is no measure in which to describe how much I love them or what I wouldn’t do for them . . .
I thought I a hard time figuring out what I wanted to be when I was younger, but as I look back in retrospect, I think I knew what I wanted to be, I just didn’t know how it fit into the grand scheme of life . . . I wanted to be a Stay at home Mom, Domestic Engineer, Housewife . . . I wanted to like my Mom . . . and looking back in School, especially High School, Home Ec. was always my favorite class, with my Ag class being close behind . . . . so to be a stay at home mom with a farm seemed to suite me, LOL. I am still working on the whole farm part of my life, but I can live by proxy to some degree through my parents who own a ranch . . . but for now my love for animals is good with our small four legged indoor city pooch. Through all the tests I took to see which “career” would best suit my interests . . . Stay at home mom/housewife would probably not have been an answer to any of those tests . . . Maybe a Vet who liked to cook. I am grateful I found my life calling and it gives me far better rewards than any paycheck or promotion or anything the work market has to offer and I am pretty darn good at it as well . . . and it’s something I really enjoy.
Part of my point in writing this is to really say . . . enjoy what you do and if that means being a parent, do it really really well . . . so many times I see people either post, say or act as if their kids are a burden or a second though or less important beings and treat them like they are snarky teenagers, or ADHD kids that have nothing better to do than annoy them as parents, please don’t . . . they ARE our kids, your life source in actualization . . . if you don’t want kids that is fine, but if you do have kids, love them beyond what your mind can comprehend . . . the rewards my kids have given me is beyond comprehension, way beyond the Moon and back and invest in them with whatever you can muster . . . My kids are Priceless and the memories I have shared with them are treasures for my soul
