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.Β 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!

    Thanks for sharing this with me. You brought tears to my eyes. I had falshbacks to the times when I used to do deliveries and how exciting that was. Good job; you have a cute boy. Can hardly wait to see you all.

    I love this πŸ™‚ You will love keeping a blog of things that are important and milestone he reaches, it makes it a lot easier to go fill in everything in the baby book later. Or just print out the pages and keep them as the baby book

    I love that you are blogging now! I’m a terrible scrapbooker, and I just simply don’t have time for it. I love blogging because not only can I remember everything about my babies, but I can make friends with other mothers along the way. πŸ™‚

    On your last post I was totally going to write “You’re a rocksta!” and then I went back and re-read stuff, and then forgot to comment that! So, I was laughing at this post, because I was totally about to call you that.

    Well, I think you are a total Rockstar Mama! Giving birth is the feeling of “oh, if I can do THAT, I can do ANYTHING!”


  6. And I will kiss the ground you walk because I could NEVER do what you did hahaha
