Every time I tell my mom something that has happened in my crazy life, she tells me "you should write a book!" So instead I'm writing a blog. I'm new at this so bear with me. :)
First, let me introduce myself. Hi, my name is Wendy. :) I'm a mother of 3, step-mom of 1, wife, daughter, sister, friend, ring-master, etc, etc. Currently I'm a stay at home mom to my wonderful kids. My husband is a truck driver who is gone most of the time, and my zoo consists of a 10 year old daughter, 4 year old son, my baby boy who is about to turn 2 (which is an issue I've yet to come to terms with, but we'll save that for anther post!), and our cat. My step-son is 15 and lives most of the time with his mom on the other side of the country.
I say I'm "Wendy in the middle" because I feel like I think most moms feel. I'm stuck in the middle of being mom and wife. The real me is in there somewhere, but I feel like a short kid playing monkey in the middle. I can't ever quite catch the ball. Oh wait, I was the short kid in the middle... Even in the world of mommy-hood, I'm in the middle. I'm not quite mainstream, but I'm not completely crunchy.
So this is going to be my story. Well, more likely, the story of what happens to a mom in the middle. :)
