MUSINGS: BLURRED LINES...


 
I firmly believe that pregnancy tests are meant to drive women crazy. 

Pee on a stick and wait, wait, wait.  Then you've got to be Columbo to decipher the codes, two lines yes, one line no, three lines what?  The day I found out I was pregnant I was on test number 15.  Anxious because I had been trying for a few months I feigned nonchalance as I took another test to see if we'd struck gold.  Leaving the bathroom (most women do this; I guess it's to give the test some privacy?) I contemplated what becoming a mom meant to my life.  You see I always wanted children, my husband and I had been married for four years, yet I was still apprehensive about becoming a mom.  I was responsible enough, but there were some habits I knew would need adjusting.  Like napping till 3 on Saturdays, or eating potato chips for dinner, you know just because. I was a grown up kid and I liked it, but I wanted to start my family.  So I tip toed back into the bathroom to check the test; there was one firm line and one faint line...What the hell does that mean?!!  Was I imagining the second line or was it really there?  My husband, who I consider my in house second opinion, read over the enormously confusing instructions and according to them, blurred lines or not I was pregnant.

Yayyyy!!!! Success, I was going to be a mommie...Now what?

IN THE BEGINNING...

My name is Caprece, I am a mommy, and this is my mommy blog. Being a mom is everything you think you know, and everything you don't.  I got the idea for this site after receiving such a great response with my "Things I've learned since becoming a mom" tweets/Instagram postings. I'll share those moments on here too, as well as journaling my experiences from the excitement of finding out I was going to be a mom, to afterbirth, and the toddler years.  

What I have learned so far is that being a mom is beautiful.  It's laughter, its tears, and most importantly it's love. Everybody will offer you advice, but as a mom you do what works best for you.  So if you've laughed, liked, retweeted, or consigned any of my mom musings, thank you for the love and for joining me on this journey.


XOXO
