There is great irony in the fact that I struggled mightily with transitioning from free spirit young adult to the vocation of motherhood, yet now after my children are grown I’ve chosen to continue mothering as my full time vocation..
It didn’t matter whether I was working full time or staying home full time or some hybrid. It was a struggle! There were times I worked because I enjoyed the mental challenge, there were times I worked because we needed the money, and there were times I worked because I couldn’t control the chaos in my home. And for this OCD chick, the latter was not good for my mental health.
I like to tell people that Ashe broke me. That raising my first three broke me. In reality, I learned that perfection is not attainable and kids still turn out okay when we aren’t perfect.
Life is good!
