I know, I've disappeared for a bit. I've been soaking up my family these days and all the advancements we've made. They are growing quick! Life is good.
Somewhere between watching my children learn to ride their bikes, being only an observer while they play with their friends and seeing the smiles as they succeed in their goals I realized something monumental.
You see, it has been over a year now since I began Rock the Mini. My main goal has been trying to figure out just who I am after getting lost in motherhood. What I've realized is I know who I am and I'm actually not lost at all. I'm exactly the person I set out to be years ago. Just as creating a business, I've created a family and I'm damn proud of them. I'm damn proud of me!
It has been hard. The challenges endless and many days extremely tiresome. Without a doubt it hasn't been what I envisioned at all. It's been full of terrible, full of wonderful and everything in between. And now I realize I wouldn't change a thing.
You know what, I'm not ashamed that I spend most of my time with my kids. For some, my endless devotion to the three of them may be cringe worthy but you know what I don't care! I love that I've been there for all their firsts and seen most of their smiles. Sure, I put my life a bit on hold, but I'm actually proud to be a minivan mom who rocks the town with her entorouge of little people. It's actually quite a privledge to have them there by my side.
No doubt they will adventually leave the nest. No doubt it will hurt like hell. And no doubt I will be able to look back and know I fulfilled my dream of raising a family.
So I'm back to blogging and ready to have some fun! Hope you will Rock the Mini with me. Not sure where we are going, but jump on in, turn the dvd on for the kids in the backseat and lets go for a ride!
