When I started this site I wanted a place for women to share their birth stories, their pregnancy stories, their nursing stories and even their miscarriage stories. These stories are today's version of women in the village sitting together and talking. The internet has become our campfire. The keyboard is our tool, our fingers working at the keys creating relationships instead of food.
I blog to share my story in-depth and to liberate myself from any illusions of being the perfect mother. Any reader of this blog can tell you I am not a perfect mother. I lose my temper, I get frustrated, I question motherhood on a frequent basis. I can only work at being a wonderful mother. There are no perfect mothers. It is an impossible task.
I never expected for this site to find me a job. I won't tell you what it is quite yet but I am thrilled at the opportunity. A reader (and friend) has asked me to help her company grow in social media through blogging and creating a space for their company online. I will be able to work from home and create my own hours. And the best part is I've used this company and was very happy with the results. It's a company I believe in and want to help develop into a powerhouse.
I was and continue to be nervous about this opportunity. I have always felt my first job is raising Sadie. I must love and nurture my little girl. And thank G-d we are financially secure enough that I don't need to work. Yes, if I worked we'd have more cool stuff and be able to go on more vacations but Logan and I feel that it is more valuable to raise our daughter than to have the latest gadgets. (Well, Logan isn't into gadgets like I am. So I just drool at the latest stuff from a distance.)
I wonder, will this job work with my job as a mother?
Can I balance the two?
Will Sadie suffer if I am at the computer working instead of tending to her needs?
I am not sure.
But it's all part of the journey of motherhood.
If anything, I'm sure it will create plenty of topics for me to blog about.
Have a wonderful shabboes.
Meet the Blogger!
I'm a mom. A writer. A lover of good fantasy. A proponent of nursing when possible. A birth advocate. I am absolutely horrible at keeping my house clean or the dishes washed or the laundry done. I strongly believe in women having a positive birth. When we start to respect women's rights to birth the way they want, we can start to treat women as equal people in this world.
