Here we go...

The day has come for me to follow the footsteps of the ones that have come before me. What brings me here? I am here to attempt to make since of the daily happenings of motherhood, family relationships, friendship, marriage, and the world around me (all of which generally perplex me from time to time). I am going to try and use this site as my means of daily therapy. Hopefully if anyone decides to read these posts, either by accident or on purpose, they may feel more affirmed in their feelings and thoughts (in other words you are either going to get it or confirm that I may in fact be insane). I chose the name Mommygirl because I think it is reflective of where I am in my life right now. I am beginning my third pregnancy, going on seven years of marriage, the mother of two amazing girls, and despite all of this I still feel like a girl sometimes...just waiting to come into my own. I am not sure whether or not anyone ever becomes 100% confident in making all the decisions that are required of us as parents, spouses, children, and friends. All that I am sure of is that I am a work in progress. I have faith that God has a plan for me even if I have no idea what it is. Enjoy the ride, but buckle up it can get kind of bumpy around here!

I told your Mom I'd stop by and I'm glad I did. You're gonna love the world of blogging...I wish it would have been around when my kids were smaller. It would have been a great way to document our lives.

Have fun with it and have a great weekend too! Take care!

Welcome! I certainly relate to your position as a "Mommy Girl". The responsibility of a young family can be both overwhelming and heavenly sweet. I'm glad you're here to share the ups and downs with us!
