As Seen In My Life

Pookah Pookah.

I know we’re not supposed to let our lives revolve around our children, but it’s so hard!

I do have other interests in life of course ( my job, my photography, the blog, twitta…)

But I find that all the things I do are somehow connected to my boy.

I continue to work in the nuthouse circus establishment where I work because it gives me more flexibility in terms of Pookah.

I started a blog. About other stuff, but mainly Pookah.

I take photos. Of Pookah. ( other things too, but lets be real here.)

I tweet. To try to talk about something other than my child! LOL

A few years ago I would have been appalled! OMG!

But now, it’s my new normal.

I love my child. I love talking about him. I love taking photos of him. I suffer 36 hours a week at night so that I can be there if he needs me in a pinch during the day.

This is my life. This is my balance. This is the way things are. For now.

And I kind of like it that way.

    I love this post and I can soooooo relate! Before children, I assumed that parents who talked a lot about their kids didn’t have lives or that they were boring. Now, as a parent, I am “that” parent. I talk about motherhood, parenting, and my children because they play such a huge role in my life. I still have a “life” and other interests, but those big three (or motherhood, parenting, my children) are what color the lens through which I talk about those other interests.

    Pookah is so handsome! I know that feeling.. its so hard to not let our lives revolve around our little people, carving out “me” time is a daily struggle.
