It’s a little, okay a lot, sad that in my mid 30’s (actually late 30’s) I struggle on where I fit in.
I mean I know I’m a mom obviously and that is my primary role. But in society, I don’t know where I stand.
I mean I try to tell myself it doesn’t matter but….c’ mon who am I kidding.
I just teeter in the balance in between, never completely one way or the other.
I just saw a meme with Care Bears (which used to be my LIFE growing up) so I had to stop to read it because oh ma gosh Care Bears!
It read which Care Bear mom are you and showed one with wine on its belly and the other one with coffee.
I just stared at it, for way longer than I should have. Trying to figure out which one I would be.
Naturally, leave it to me to take something silly and lighthearted so literal!
I mean I don’t really fit the description of either. It is a big deal for me to drink alcohol of any kind, like it has to be planned. I have to intentionally calculate if there would be a good time for me to be altered and not completely in control, God forbid! I mean I’m a lightweight, I would probably completely forget how to helicopter parent.
And coffee…..well coffee activates the panic button, sending my already anxious thoughts into over-drive.
So here I sit staring at these adorable Care Bears trying to find my place. Not the typical mom I guess.
What if I’m boring!?
What is my thing?
What makes me relatable to other moms?
I love a good hard rock concert!
Oops, no I went in the wrong direction, that is definitely not a mom thing to say.
“Oh hey, Debra did you see that Blink 182 is on a comeback tour?” No? Oh, you don’t like them?
I guess once I think about it I’m a combination of a lot of weird things that contradict each other.
I’m a Bible-thumping, church-going, lazy, introverted, completely OCD about my house, cars and any surface that can be cleaned, goer of the rock concerts, reserved, quiet, eat all the chocolate, workout nonstop for a month, obsessed with my kids, burnt out on life Care Bear mom standing in the back in between the other 2 Bears.
Oh, and I’m purple, so you can’t miss me!
