My very first entry...

So, after spending too much time writing for other people, I have decided to finally start my own blog. Though I considered endless subjects on which to focus (writing, teaching, green tea), I settled on the one thing that seems to consume my life right now: Motherhood. A friend once described parenting to me as the hardest, best job you'll ever have...and I was too naive and romantic to have any idea what she could mean. However, two children, a move to the suburbs, and a few thousand diaper changes later, I think I know what she meant...I just hope it doesn't get too much harder.





So welcome to anyone who'd like to read, comment, or criticize...having a child (by loin or by legality --word to DB--) is the great, shared human experience...it's good to know so many of us are in this together.

I wish I could tell you it gets easier...but you wind up longing for the days when things were this "hard". Small children, small challenges; big children, big challenges. I know I'm still not there yet.

Fairly soon you will take off that nursing bra and exchange it for your new wardrobe: an apron, a chauffer outfit, a maid outfit, a waittress outfit; a black and white striped referee shirt. You are no longer a mother, but a cook, chauffer, maid, waittress and referee. The best/worst part is that every now and then, you'll love it so much that it will get you through the next week.
