Well, here is my first offical blog entry!! I don't know what has taken me so long. I've been wanting to do this for months, but kept putting it off. I guess I felt like it was such a fad, that it would pass. But as it turns out, it hasn't and I think it would be a great way to chronicle my days as a mama. Too bad I'm starting a year late, but that's the story of my life. I always peek from the outside a bit too hesitant to jump right in. Eventually I usually do. Better late than never, right?
So, a bit about me. I am wife to my very hot husband of 3 years, Dan. We have frickin' adorable son together, Joaquin who is just over 13 months. I work part-time 3 days a week and I hate it. I'm a Special Ed teacher in a High School in the 'hood. We don't like to talk about that much. If I could go back in time I would have planned totally differently and would be a SAHM right now. But I thought I was one of those women who wanted it all. I don't. At least not all at once. Maybe if my job wasn't so damn ungratifying it would be better. Anyway, whatever, I don't want to think about it, it's my day off!
We live in a teeny house on the border of the 'hood. It's cute, and it will do for now, but I swear, some days it feels like these walls are caving in. We have a 3 year old black lab mix named Bella. Joaquin absolutley adores her, it's so stinkin' cute.
All of our family are here in San Diego, so we have an awesome support system. My mother in law watches Joaquin two days a week. I know most think that would be crrrazy, but she's pretty cool and way respectful of my decisions as a mom. We're cool like that. My mom is obssessed with Joaquin. She calls like 5 times a day just to see how he is. We're pretty close, and I completely appreciate the fact that we have a good relationship and we're in the same city. I also have a little sister that will be getting married in March. Unfortunately we're not that close, I think our 7 year age difference has something to do with it. But little by little we're getting to know each other better.
Well, that's me. And my cherry is officially *popped*!
