My Crew

As a stay at home mom I try to stay connected with other moms through blogs. I decided why should everyone else have all the fun. So here I am. Ready to give blogging a try. I titled my blog the Mom Taxi because that's what I am. I am 27 years old and the owner of my own mini-van. Now the mom in me is thrilled with my van. I can haul my kids and half the neighborhood around town along with all their stuff. I can go grocery shopping and have plenty of room for everything. I can go to baseball games and practice and can carry all the equipment needed for the whole team. Plus I can separate the kids so they can't touch each other! (MOM HE WON"T STOP TOUCHING ME. MOM TELL HER TO LEAVE ME ALONE!)

But what about the 27 year old in me. She would much rather be in a '69 Mustang convertible with the top down and the wind blowing through my hair. Oh yeah back to reality. I had kids young, got married young and wouldn't change my life for the world. but as I reconnect with my old high school friends who are just getting married and starting to have kids I sometimes wonder what if. What would I be doing now. Would I be climbing the career ladder with a high paying job or would I be traveling the world visiting exotic places. Then the kids run through the door and give me a huge hug and say I love you! That's when I realize I have the best job in the world. i would much rather get paid in hugs, kisses and finger paintings and every night before the kids go to bed we travel to exotic places in the books we read. So maybe things didn't turn out exactly as planned but MUCH MUCH BETTER than I ever could imagine.
