In the Trenches of Mommyhood

Excellent post. And I agree, time with girlfriends is vital for a woman's well-being. I don't know what I would do without my friends (both in-real life and blogger buddies!)

Ugh. I feel like that ALL the time. I love my life, and this is the life I've chosen for myself and worked hard to have, and I don't want a different life. BUT I do. There are times when it is too much work to be constantly consumed with who needs what and when and never thinking of yourself. I am going home to FL soon, and all my friends there are single with no kids. I can't even imagine what that must be like. Going out, not worrying about the kids or your husband. I really can not even imagine it. My mind needs to catch up too and realize this is me and this is my life and this will be my life for a very long time.


Yeah. As much as I love my life, I sometimes wonder which one of my roles is really ME, KWIM? Because I have to be so many things to so many people (mommy, wife, friend, etc.) Underneath it all...who am I? Or am I all of it?


nice transparent post Lori. good to see inside your mind and heart. :)
I think it could be a case of grass is greener in some ways. There are single women out there just yearning for a husband and kids. I suppose it is just difficult to be consumed by any one thing for too long. variety really might be the spice of life.


Great post. I often have the same questions and desires and yearnings to determine who I am. I'm not a Gemini, but I love change. Love it.

Perhaps a vacation would help. well, it couldn't hurt, right??


Great post Lori! I think the conclusion you came up with is reasonable! Instead of figuring out how to be that person you knew, learn to love the person you are. XOXO, either way, I think you are awesome!

This is a great post. As a single woman I can honestly say that I feel the same way sometimes. Time away does help some....I've taken up new hobbies too and that helps too. Basically doing something that is totally out of the ordinary for me has helped me when ever that feeling comes along.


yeah i'm not a gemini either, but i love change. i hope that never changes.


but yeah, that thing about different 'you's i so get it. i'd love to see myself through my children's eyes one day.

...or perhaps i *don't*...yikes.

Well said.
Let's go on a girls' vacation.


This resonated with me a lot. Quite often I wish I could shed those "personas" (the mom, the professional, the wife, the daughter, the displaced Puerto Rican) and just be "myself" for a while. Usually what I want the most is quiet, and no demands on my time for a while. If I get those, I am happy.

Thanks Lori. I'll be back to read properly soon but thanks so much for the Pulmonary Haemosiderosis heads up. You're a star. Mwah.


I don't know how I found your blog, but I'm glad I did. I've read through quite a bit of it and find that I relate to much of what you say so well. This post is a repeat of a post that I've had in my mind to write (I'm like you in that I can be asleep and write posts in my head. :D) Thanks for being so open and honest. Now I know that it's not just me.
