Mama lost in the Burbs's Blog

adventures of being a mom and other ramblings by me

About Mama January 25, 2010

Have you ever woken up and wondered how did I get here?  I don’t mean that in the drunken co-ed night type of how did I get here, but the how am I already this old and who is this small person calling me “mom”?  How did I go to bed one night a 20 something and wake up 30?  Don’t get me wrong I love my life, I love my daughter and I love my husband, but where did the me time go?  Also when did I start thinking that buying Disney movies over new clothes was a great idea?!?!?!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m a 30 something mama who is completely lost in the Burbs.

I am married to T, who is my high school crush, not my high school sweet heart but my crush.  We’ve been together 10+ years and have one little girl B, and another little one on the way.  I live in a small house in a small town, where my T and I both were born and raised.  We really branched out.  We live about 30 minutes from San Francisco.  I find it amazing how as an 8 year old the years would tick by like waiting at DMV, and as you get older the years start flying past you like your on some sort of crazy, out of control ferris wheel.  I blink and think oh my god did I just get married?

Don’t get me wrong I remember getting married and having B, but what I don’t remember is how I got to be this age, 30!  I can remember thinking that by the time I was 30 I would have my life together.   I figured I’d live in a big house with a little bit of property around it to have a few animals, not a farm, but enough room to let the dogs run without running straight into a fence.  I also figured I’d be at a point where I could choose to work if I wanted too, not forced to because I have a mortgage and bills to pay and I live in California.

As you can tell I am Married, I’m not a stay at home mom, I still have a mortgage payment and I have one small person that calls me mom.  I am currently pregnant with another due in 17 days, 16, 15, etc.  As a family we are out numbered by our furry kids, which include 4 dogs, 3 cats and house bunny.  So why start a blog? Well really why not?

      Love the blog! Your posts are so honest, and the one about washing the dog gave me a good laugh. My husband and I have the same discussion when it comes to washing our dogs.

      Thank you for the comment on my blog, and I’m following you from Bloggy Moms! =)

    30 wasn’t a fun one – like you said, not the exact picture I imagined way back when but guess it wouldn’t be any fun if things went right according to plan. (I think.)
