Down at the Veterans of the Motherhood Wars Legion Hall by Life Your Way!
It was 10:30 last night when I realized I hadn’t even brushed my funky, scrunchi-contained hair that day. Seriously? And it pretty much goes without saying I’d missed the daily shower mark as well. I really had no good excuse for my lapse in hygiene, except to say I’d spent the day reading *insert sinister music here* Mom Blogs!
Since I entered the world of blogs, I have avoided any and all things labeled “Mom Blog” on sheer principle alone. I mean, I’m not a Mom Blogger and my Offspring are well past the point that anything I read on those things would do me any good. Right?
You gotta understand, I look at Motherhood like an ongoing war. It’s not a short skirmish or incursion or anything you can add I or II after. It’s the good fight women have been waging with their children since the dawn of time. The Victors? The ones who see their progeny to adulthood without losing 100% of their minds or finding themselves standing in the smoldering wreckage of their homes.(Sometimes literally.)
ABOUT CHRIS: Chris Dean is the wife of an extremely tolerant man, Mom of four fairly functional adult-kids, world-class music junkie, and all around nut job! She began writing Life Your Way! as a way to help keep her sanity while going through the diagnostic phase for an autoimmune disease.
Chris dealt with this speed-bump the same way she’s always dealt with these things, education and laughter. Her mantra has become, “A life without laughter is a life unlived.” And living is exactly what she makes it her goal to do and hopefully inspire others to do as well!
