Ironically enough my “Mama Mary” nickname was not coined when my first child, nor second child, was born. No, my moniker was the product of a rave called “Solstice”, 12 years ago, when I helped a hopped up friend unravel himself from a bundle of intertwined wool. Out of delirious gratitude, he called me Mama Mary. The name stuck throughout the years as I always seemed to be the person with the snack, piece of gum or crumpled piece of tissue in my bag when anyone was in need.
Now, I truly am “Mama Mary” to two precious little girls, Lily and Lexi, and boy, do I have a lot to say. I have a lot to say about being a mom, a woman, a wife, a reality tv junkie, a cool chick, and an obsessive cumpulsive extremist. I want to get some things off my chest (which hasn’t grown past a B cup even while nursing – not fair!) and give props to the other women out there who are feeling a little overwhelmed by the constant tug o’ war between family, the workplace and our own personal selves who want a little me time once in awhile (and don’t want to feel guilty for it!). I want to bond with my sisters out there – let’s laugh, cry, rant, rave and maybe dish a little dirt while we’re at it.
