I recently (this past December) graduated from college with a B.B.A. Many have asked me what I want to do with it. This is my apologetic, of sorts, about what I DON'T want to do with it. And what, one day, I DO want to. You see, I have noticed this trend in society that says that women have to be doing some kind of work to be considered worthwhile. They either have to be doing some kind of work, or have seven children and be 'unable' to, in which case they are shunned for having so many blessings (???). But I have to ask...why?

SIPPC (Self-Initiated Prone Progressive Crawler), where she was hooked up to an EEG (electroencephalogram) once a week and strapped to a scooter twice a week and observed as she attempted to learn to crawl. The first time they put the EEG hat on her head, she smiled, as if she knew she was contributing to a better world. My little girl may have just helped change the future.

I wrote in a previous post that I had been experiencing sleep deprivation with my now nine month old daughter. While things are back to "normal" (read: OUR normal) with typically 4 feedings between 9pm and 8am, I still wanted to explain a little bit about what had brought me to such a place of sheer desperation that I was willing to compromise one of my core beliefs to get what I wanted. But first, let me explain a little about that core belief and how it came to be.

I'm pretty sure I know what will be the cause of the end of the world....lack of sleep! I have some pretty morbid thoughts at 4am (usually the third but lately the 5th wakeup and feeding that my 8 month old demands of me) which are not very loving. So lack of sleep=lack of love=no compassion=anger=riots and violence=death=END OF THE WORLD. So you see, my mommy issues have just solved all the world problems. You're welcome.
