My Un-Word...

Today is a special day (the day that we celebrate two years since our oldest three kids came to live with us!) I thought it would be fun to join in with the Nester (and a bunch of other wonderful people) and declare my Un-Word of the year. Declaring a word that I AM NOT.


With out a doubt the past few years of life have been overwhelming. While I've tried to gain skills that would help me as a mother...most of the time I just felt overwhelmed by it all. Slowly that has been changing. I'm definitely no expert mother, but I can say that I am feeling more comfortable in my own skin and the role that I have with my children (in fact, I still wake up in awe most days that I even am a mother.) There still may be days where many things hit the fan and "overwhelming" is the best word to describe the day...but I'm not going to let it define me.

I'm just going to take it...

What is your Un-Word of 2014?

  1. I'm so glad I found your blog via the Un-word list. I only have 2 kids, but I can relate to the "overwhelmed" choice for your un-word. I think mine would be "distraction" because I always seem to get side-tracked from the important things that I need or want to do. I look forward to reading your blog. :)

  2. Thanks Tanya, so great having you following along! I can totally relate with "distraction" as well. :-)
