The Birth of a Blog

So, I've been wanting to start blogging for years. Just hasn't happened until now. Having three kids in three and a half years, I've been a bit busy. You could say, I've got my hands full... in fact, many well meaning folks have made sure that I know that. "Boy! You've got your hands full!" At the park, the doctor's office, Costco, people see me and my posse and wonder how I do it. I usually say, "well, *pause* I don't do anything else." But I wouldn't change anything about my kids (or their birth proximity) because, well as you can see by the title of this new blog, my heart is full too. I know of many other moms with more than three or even three closer together, that I wonder about the same thing... how do you do it? I've also been asked by friends and perfect strangers, if we're done having kids... Well, I just don't know. We're not there yet. One way or another, we'll figure it out... I'm waiting on that "feeling" I've been told I'd feel to know when I'm done. Either way, this is the start of my ramblings, lessons learned, lessons I want and need to learn, questions, doubts, successes, failures, thoughts, plans, dreams, and general parenthood stuff in a blog. Sure there are lots of these kinds of blogs out there, but I kind of hope this one is different... honest and funny, but kinda serious at times too. One day I hope to have a second blog (yes, I know, this is just my first post in my first blog!) about my journey as a childbirth educator and doula... but I'm not there yet... need my certifications first. So, there you have it... my first entry. Now it's time for bed.
