Yep, I'm that Mommy

It happened......

I went out for a ladies night this past Friday.  We went to a popular Mexican restaurant who is known for their huge and delicious margaritas! The ladies and I were having a great time catching up with one another and also planning the re-launch of Sassy Mahogany Wives Foundation.  There was great conversation, juicy gossip, tons of laughter and also business was being taken care of all in one sit down.  Then out of nowhere I started talking about my little princess.  I swear it was an out of body experience as I was fully aware of me rambling on about my daughter but I couldn't stop it.  I had to talk about her sitting up now and her sleep pattern oh and don't forget the new screams that she has discovered she can make and enjoys hearing and seeing my reaction to.  Yep, I've become one of those mommies who go out and all they do is talk about their babies.  This little outing was supposed to be my escape to go out and regroup.  Have some adult conversation, no Peek-A-Boo or baby talk for a couple of hours. This was especially needed since the night before she woke up about every 2 hours and was so fussy.. oh by the way did I tell you that she is cutting teeth and she goes for her Four month shots on Monday? See I'm doing it again.  Oh well I've come to the realization that my girlfriends will just have to deal with this phase of mine and get used to me sharing the highs and lows of being Brianna's mommy.... I'm sure they don't mind.  Is it really a phase or is this something that mommies do for the rest of their lives...talk about their kids? Does it just shift from developmental milestones to scholastic, athletic, or extra curricular achievements?

  1. It's not a phase :) Motherhood is such an amazing experience. As our children grow and go through their stages in life, we as moms grow and transform as well. I think its only natural to want to talk and share about the children we love and cherish so much, with all we do to raise them, protect them and provide. Iknow I still talk about my kids as much as I did when they were babies. Its just apart of who I am now....and proudly :) Plus I think it helps to connect to other moms as well. Being a parent is tough enough as it is, so sharing experiences I believe helps keeps us sane too!

  2. Definitely not a phase! My kiddos are 12, 7, and 9 and I still chatter away. The only changes that happen over time with that is you go from talking about poopy diapers to potty training to zits and how you had the sex talk(for real)!!!! ENJOY every bit of it!

  4. Mine are 4 and 2 and probably 50% of what comes out of my mouth has to do with them. It's part of being a mom. :)

  5. Perfectly normal. My child's only 10 months but I know I'm never going to stop talking about her. Think about it your kids pretty much become your life. Realistically they become you and everything you do is with them around them for them. Even when you are doing something for yourself, you are still thinking about them. Definitely not a phase. Enjoy it, if your friends get sick of it- just wait until they're moms! LOL
