A Little Bit of Honesty....

A Little Bit of Honesty....

DISCLAIMER!!! This post is something that has been weighing heavy on my heart over the last several months and I really want to take some time to share some of my thoughts on the subject.  I love being a mom, I love sharing my favorite kid spots, I adore my family, and I love all of your families even though I haven't met them all.  I take great pride in what I write and I only ever want to give you quality pieces. If we go somewhere "new and trendy" but I feel like I was let down - I simply don't share it with you.  That business could have been having a bad day, short staffed, or whatever.  My goal is not to hurt businesses but to help the families of Columbus and I believe to do that I need to be totally honest is everything that I share.  I hope you'll read this and understand where my heart is and not simply think that I'm complaining because I'm not.  I just feel like some of these things need to be said.  I would love your feedback.  

Being a mother doesn't define me, but it is also a title I wear very proudly.  I am a lot of things woman, mother, wife, friend, daughter, entrepreneur, and many more.  I have found through numerous engagements that people are quick to judge the mothers of this world as if we no longer care about anything other than motherhood.  I have been known to through back a few shots of Patron and dance the night away since becoming a mother, I can carry on conversations about world events and I enjoying reading books other than Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  At the same time I can talk in detail about the struggles of the tantrum stage, I won't blush when you tell me about that time your son started talking proudly about his penis in public, and I am happy to share my thoughts on the best places in Columbus for kids.  I am well rounded, as most of us are.  

Truth be told, I find being classified as a "mom blogger" very limiting. It's easy to assume that because this is 614 Mom, that I won't discuss anything other than kids. NOT TRUE!  However I am not ashamed to be a mom blogger - I actually love it a great deal.  I get to share some really amazing things with the moms of Columbus and the families visiting Columbus and that is something I don't take lightly.  614 Mom was founded on the fact that while we are moms, we are humans too.  It's the foundation on which 614 Mom was built and I plan to stay true to the 614 Mom brand as we grow. 

I just hate the thought that Moms are these really uptight women who only focus on their kids. Moms are strong. We are devoted, loving, strong humans and we kick ass. I have some serious goals and some wild dreams that I am currently chasing and having kids will not change that. I adore my children and I know that while I can't spend every waking moment with them, I am doing my best for them and for myself.  Finding my true happiness is extremely important because if I can't love myself and love where my life is headed then how can I be a great mother?  

This post is filled with thoughts that have weighed heavily on my heart over the last few months and I just feel like it needs to be said.  I am so proud to be a mom, a wife, an entrepreneur.  I am chasing my dreams and I hope you'll chase yours with me.  Tell me what are some of the things you're working so hard on while also juggling motherhood?
