Motherhood is no joke.........

I am tired. I am sleepy. I am overwhelmed. I just want to veg out without someone yelling," I want so juice." I want come home from work and go lay in my bed.  I am cranky. I am a continuous climb toy, chef and teacher. I am a handy-woman. I am nurse. I am housekeeper. I am achy. I am sore. I am a cuddler. I am a comforter. I am problem solver. I am an artist. I am a listener. I am happy. I am loved. I am all of these things and more. Motherhood is no joke, but I would not change it.

Hi Gabby's Mom....

I love my little diva but did I lose my identity when I had her? I get greeted a lot more with the words, "Hi Gabby's mom." instead of just "Hi Dana". It never seemed to bother me as much when people did until now. I just since she is now 4 years old the newest and cuteness in it has kinda worn off.  It just seems like  people say it all the time  now and  all they see is her and not me. What did they think of me prior to having her? Do all women lose their identity when having children? Is this why so many mommys' feel lost or unappreciated?

Don't get me wrong, I am proud to be Gabby's mom, but we are two different people and should be acknowledged and cherished for such. Each person or child has many different titles in life, I have a few...
  • Mrs. Johnson
  • social worker
  • Gabby's mom
  • someone sister-in law
  • sorority sister
  • Christian
  • African-American
  • woman
My list could go on, but I wont bore you. I want to be seen as Dana first and my titles second. Without Dana coming first there would not be the rest.

Sorry for my rant, I guess I need to suck it up because as long as I have Gabby I will be know as Gabby's mom and nothing can change that. And I love being her mom.
