I’ve been thinking about my motherhood and parenting journey a lot lately.
Even though I don’t feel good enough sometimes, when I step back and take a good look at my life – I realize how privileged and blessed I am.
I’m ready to toot my own horn now.
I’ve always wanted to live by the beach. Now I do, very close actually. I have three beautiful, happy, healthy children, and a husband that I can stand a good majority of the time *I’m smiling when I say that*
I’m able to stay home with my kids. Virginia is a great place to raise a family. So much history, and natural beauty here.
We’ve barely scratched the surface of all there is to do in our surrounding cities, let alone the entire state.
Not only am I able to stay home, I’m also unschooling. I’m able to create this life that I chose, I enjoy, and am falling inlove with all over again.
My high-school peers…they picked on me so bad. I was ugly, stupid, never would get married or have kids.
If the person I was 10+years ago could’ve looked into the future, and saw all that I am now, I would’ve laughed so hard!
Black stay at home mom to three? Homebirth? Breastfeeding? Babywearing? Unschooling? Taking a stand for something because I believe in it, and not because someone else says I should? Running two moderately successful blogs, and online community with Twitter and Facebook? Not that girl….
Yet here I am. I love it!
May I continue to be challenged, and exceed expectantions.
You want to toot your horn too, don’t you? Go on, share in the comments!
