Still an Adult

I absolutely love being a mom. I embrace every part of it. I love being my own boss and creating traditions in our family. I love being able to blow off everything in favor of an afternoon of ice cream. I love making quilts and birthday cakes and party food for classes. Its not all cotton candy and rainbows, but I love it nonetheless.

But every once in a while I get a glimpse of my old life, my pre-kid life. And I realize I loved that just as much too. Just recently I attended a School Site Council meeting. I almost didn't go, just because evenings are so tough for me. In the end I did go and I am glad I did. I really enjoyed talking to other parents, not being interrupted, not wiping noses or breaking up fights. I have 2 1/2 hours of adult conversation surrounding budgets, test scores and morality versus discipline.

It seems like such a small thing. In fact, it technically still is a mom thing since I am a parent representative and we were talking about children. But it was so nice to talk about it from a theoretical business perspective instead of venting about the most recent tantrum. I am so thankful for that grown-up time.
