The first thing you should know about me is that I am awkward. It’s the type of awkward that rears it ugly head in social situations. Cashiers run when they see me coming because in the course of checking me out there will inevitably be an awkward silence. My husband is constantly giving me pointers because he is the type of person that can talk to anyone, anywhere, about anything, but I think my case may be hopeless.
I hope I haven’t passed on this awkwardness to my son. We still have lots of time to teach him the ways of his father since he’s still a toddler. I spend most of my days running after him saying things like, “Don’t put that in your mouth!” and “Just give mommy 30 seconds in the bathroom!” Some days I wonder if he has little Millennium Falcons under his feet because I feel like I’ve done the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs trying to keep up with him.
My life is a mixture of trying to make healthy choices, being the best parent I can, trying to get projects done with a toddler underfoot, staying organized, putting off the vacuuming to play, reading, and watching far too much television. This is what I am going to share with you. Much like Samwise shared his Lembas bread rations with Frodo on their way to Mordor before Gollum threw it all away.
