Aging Gracelessly with a Little Help from my Friends

I searched my facebook pictures and discovered I had not one picture from the last decade without a kid, a husband, or a farm animal in it. Anyway, I'm pretty sure he wanted professional pictures. The only thing I have been professional at in the last ten years is motherhood. I am proud of this, but I do not think yoga pants were what James had in mind. 

Becoming Mom

I had my first of three children over ten years ago now. The fact that I have a ten-year-old child does not really compute in my brain. I am still young and young people do not have ten year-olds. My next child is eight and the last is five-"and-a-half." But I didn't become a mother ten years ago. I think I became a mom about three or four years ago.
