Writer's Workshop Prompt:
Before I was a mom...
I'm supposed to be on my way to Utah right now with my dearest love. Just he and I (and well, two other men, but no kids). It was to be a weekend of enlightenment and good times for all.
Waylon decided to participate in a fun little barf-o-rama that began just before bedtime yesterday and lasted ALL NIGHT LONG. So at home I sit... because I am a mom.
Before I was a mom I could selfishly do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. I could jet set the world over if it suited my fancy without worrying about the needs of anyone else.
It didn't suit my fancy to live for myself. Because before I was a mom all I wanted was-- to be a mom.
Barf... missed opportunities... and all.
Of course that doesn't mean I can't be bummed about the barf... missed opportunities... and all.
Because I am.
But at least those kiddos o' mine are worth the sacrifice.
So very, very worth it.
