I know you are sitting there saying, “why did this woman start a blog about her mother’s flatulence and why am I actually sitting here wanting to read about it”. Well let me assure you, this blog is not about my mother’s flatulence or lack there of. This blog is actually about the reality of my life as a wife and stay at home mom (SAHM) of two. When I first decided to write a blog many titles came to mind but nothing seemed to stand out or reflect the direction I wish for my blog. Then I thought of the title “Ain’t Never Heard My Mama Pass Gas”. It was the perfect.
Growing up and watching my mother I thought that being a wife and a mother was so easy and glamorous. My mother just made everything seem effortless. I know my sister and I were a handful but my mother handled every situation so instinctively. Now that I am a wife and mother I realize how foolish I was to think that just because I never heard my mother pass gas did not mean she never did. It is something natural that you body does and needs to do. It is the same as being a mom. Just because my mother never seemed overwhelmed or stressed does not mean she never felt that way.
Feeling overwhelmed at times and stretched thin are natural feelings that mothers feel. How you deal with these feelings is what really matters. So that is what I plan for this blog. To share the reality of my life. I am not always organized nor do I keep my house spotless. My reality is that I have dishes in my sink, a two year old that seems to find his way in our bed halfway through the night, and to be brutally honest days that I find myself unable to find the time to take a shower.
I hope that you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy sharing it with you.
Love and Blessings
