For the Maturing Mom: My PMB Guest Post (& Weekly Menu)

Today Portland Moms Blog posted a piece I wrote about becoming a mom of older kids.

There isn’t a word in the English language that accurately describes changing from being a mom of young children to being a mom of older children. A mom who’s done making more kids and is now concentrating on growing up the ones she’s got.
While the English language isn’t going to honor us moms of not-babies-anymore, I will.

Here’s to Ten Years

I have now spent 3,652 days as Mrs. The Husband. There is not one single day out of those 3,652 days that I have wished not to be Mrs. The Husband.

Although not every day was easy, they were all worth it.

When we were back in Fargo for our trip last week, we took a quick trip up to the church at which we were married.

All I wanted was a picture with that one window in it. The Husband took it in one shot.

He’s good. But I knew that.

Ten years…I hope it’s just the beginning.

Back to the Way Things Were

We made it back to Portland late yesterday afternoon from a 10-day trip out to the Midwest to celebrate the wedding of a very special friend of mine, and my body decided that it’d had enough. I don’t know what it is about long roadtrips that makes my body revolt. But alas. Here we are.

It’s just now that I realized that it’s really difficult to type with fake fingernails on, too. Oh well, they were fun while they lasted!

As far as a Weekly Menu, I’m a day late and a dollar short. I’ve got some store-bought freezer meals I think we’ll make for a few days, and I figured The Husband and I would celebrate a very special anniversary.

So, while I and the rest of my household recovers from the good chaos of the last few weeks, enjoy this picture taken somewhere in Idaho.
