As I sit on the couch with my 7 week old son sleeping on my chest, I decided it’s time to start a blog…again. I’ve tried before but being someone who’s horrible at follow-through I am trying… again. I’ve been chatting with girl friends lately and really been wanting to blog again because, well, being a stay home mom, I really only talk to my child and myself!!! So, what better way to get out thoughts than try blogging.
I found myself contemplating what to NAME my blog… I wanted a cool name. I didn’t want just lame old, Tanya’s blog… I needed something original. First wanted to call it “Story of a rockstar…” NOT because I’m a rockstar…although that’d be sweet, but because that’s what I call people when they do something awesome! A South African friend of ours (Morne) always said in his cool accent “You’re a star!” when we did something for him, and I then started to say “You’re a rockstar”! I want nothing more than for someone to look at me and in regards to being a good mom say, “MAN! You’re a ROCKSTAR!!”.
Then, I realized… my husband always says to me “… well it’s because you’re the best!”. So, there it is! I’m not a rockstar but my husband thinks I’m the BEST when it comes to being a mom, even if I utterly fail, it’s his way of encouraging me! Then I got the idea from a friend to make this a journal to Isaiah… and I liked the name EVEN MORE because I want all of my kids to grow up knowing their mom thinks they are the BEST. Even if they feel like they failed in life, I want them to always know when they come home, I think that they are all the best kids out there… especially when they smile for the first time for the camera!
