Since I’m always down for a little introspection and reflection, I decided to jump on the “30 Things My Kid(s) Should Know About Me” bandwagon. Yeah, go ahead and click because homegirls’ site is off the chain. #ThatIsAll
Wait, no it’s not.
Allow me to give you a few reasons, other than my inability to ignore pretty graphics, as to why I’ve decided to join this challenge.
- There are some things that I will never get around to telling my daughter because I won’t think about them unless she asks.
- I want her to know me as a person and not just as “mommy.” Even at 25, I find that learning about my mom as person…an actual human being with thoughts, feelings, passions, dreams…is fascinating. I mean, who knew my mom was a real person?? News to me…
- I express much more in written form, than I ever have or will verbally. She will learn about this a little more when she gets older and begins to find little love notes in her sock drawer.
- I think it’s cool and will give me something to write about that is outside of my comfort zone. Read: Jordyn, you MUST get out of your comfort zone to really live. Remember, there is no growth inside your comfort zone. Also remember to always wear clean underwear in case you’re in an accident and they have to remove your clothes.
So, I’m ready to get started and looking 29 weeks ahead, I should be finishing up sometime around November. Woot! Woot! Let’s do this.
