Hello, my name is Mom

Don't get me wrong I LOVE being a mother, I really do, it's just sometimes I feel that I am only a mother and not Tara.  I know I cannot be the only one out there that feels this way.  For the past 6 years of my life I have either been pregnant or nursing a baby.  I also have not had more than 3 periods in that time (TMI, but hey, that's a high point of my life).  Now that my youngest is a year old, I can finally feel confident to leave him with someone for more than an hour or two.  Now all I have to do is find stuff to do, right?  Easier said than done.

Now onto the #mombod issues we all face.  I am struggling with these last 12 pounds or so.  Now, I know to officially be able to complain about it I actually have to go and workout and not see results- buzz kill.  So instead of complaining, I will ask you what you have found that helps shed those last few pounds without having to practically starve myself or eat apple sauce for two weeks?  I recently tried this "magic drink" of grapefruit juice, apple cider vinegar and honey.  I would love to tell you that after drinking this magical concoction I shed those last few unwanted pounds.  Instead, I about threw up all over my son as he watched with bug eyes in disbelief.  I like to think of it as pay back for all the times he spit up on me.  I think eventually I will have to suck it up and join a gym, but who really has time for all that craziness?  Another alternative, is strapping my youngest on my back while I chase my older boys around the house.  That way I can get a good sweat in, while still playing with them.  Win, win in my book.  Seriously ladies, let me know what works for you.  I am open to just about anything. 

Now to shamelessly show off my handsome boys.  I may just be Mom now, but I am dang lucky to be theirs. Fun fact about my two oldest: They share the same birthday but are 2 years apart.  No it was not planned but I love it!
