Well here it goes, my first Stream of Consciousness Sunday post about Motherhood in the Forties. As I played with my son in the driveway yesterday while my hubby golfed the day away I thought I'm getting too old for this. I grabbed a couple of stadium cushions to put on the ground to sit on & proceeded to race LEGO Cars around a LEGO racetrack.
My munchkin is four & I'll be forty-three in only two months. Being the Mom of a preschooler is an adventure, but so much more so when you are contemplating how to grow in your career & be the best Mom you know how to be. Kindergarten is still a year away & I'm concerned with how to balance my life & how to make sure I don't miss a thing.
We saw a woman on the news who was turning 102 & Munchkin said "I don't ever want you to get that old because you're my Mom & I don't want you to die because then I won't have a Mom." It really hit home for me and gives me all the more reason to commit to taking care of myself & being the healthiest I can possibly be, so that I have many more years of looking younger than I am, so that my growing Son can always be proud to say I'm his Mom.
Now I can say that five minutes really flies by, but with time the words will flow more easily & this writing exercise will become like second nature... at least that's my hope.
