Random Thoughts

Lately I've been feeling like I need to do something with my life other than being a mom. I love staying home with my daughter, but I feel so isolated. I've been missing my pre-child life. Don't get me wrong, I love Charla to pieces but I've been feeling trapped. There are a few things I wish I had done differently. I should have waited to get married. Perhaps I should have even waited to have a baby. I miss going out on weekends, random car trips and sleeping in. I miss my body before having a baby. Now I just feel old and out of touch with the world and I'm only 26!


  1. I feel the same way sometimes! I feel so young still (26, too) and sometimes I just want to loose all my responsibilities as a wife and mother but then I think of all the good things in my life. Besides my kids and my husband would be totally lost with out me ;)

  2. It's very difficult when they are really little. I felt the same way and just when I started to feel "normal" again, baby #2 arrived. Just remember, having them young means you have the energy to enjoy them and when they get older you will be young enough to start a new chapter in your life. Hang in there!!
