MamaBlogger365 – Why Not Now? By, Jax Resto

Though I have a lot less time to do all the wonderful things I didn’t do when I was young, single, and childless, somehow none of the former questions: How do I afford it? How will I get there? Why wasn’t I born a boy?, invade my thoughts. The only question I ask myself was, “Why not now?” Jax Resto is part of our MamaBlogger365 initiative in 2011, raising awareness and funds for the Museum Of Motherhood, through our sister blogs, Mamapalooza, JoinMama Blogspot and Mamazina Magazine.

MamaBlogger365 – Poor Thing by Jennifer Anderson

Yes, she was the very example of why I would not let myself become a stereotypical stay at home mom. You know, those women whose conversations cannot seem to leave sleep challenges and picky eaters, or even worse, gush corny sentiments about their oh-so-adorable-daughters first steps.

MamaBlogger365 – Tuning In by Kim Kennings

I’m very concerned with how much we are growing apart. I’m frustrated, you’re frustrated, and it’s time for us to really dedicate ourselves to taking even the smallest of steps to make it better for each other. Let’s both of us start with being honest and up front with each other, without any guilt over sharing the reality of what’s really happening here. I neglect you, and you take it like a martyr. Let’s put a stop to that pattern, right here and right now.

MamaBlogger365 – Reframing Motherhood; IS IT EVEN POSSIBLE? by Dorothy (Sue) Laqua

I remember a book called “Our Bodies, Our Selves.” Reading it was the first time I realized I had options in raising children. I could breastfeed or not, I could choose to have children or not. I had options not available to my mother. I could use birth control, or use the Lamaze method of birth. Roe vs. Wade had won my generation the right to decide. I wonder, did all of this really change being a mother?

MamaBlogger365 – Keeping the Faith by Leticia Valasquez

I was taken aback when the ophthalmologist told me I could have a uveal melanoma in my right eye, near the optic nerve, and that removing it (which might be necessary to save my life) could destroy the vision in that eye. I was paralyzed with fear, in my bed, watching life pass before my eyes.

MamaBlogger365 – Life Attachments by Marta Calero

Last week I found myself talking to 3 different moms about not being attached to the outcome. What does this consist of? TRUST, that’s a big word. To trust from the bottom of my heart that we are doing the right thing, doing the best we can, for ourselves and our family. Trusting that lone, even if things don’t work-out, even if our feelings may end up crushed. I am learning how to trust my in-stints, go with the moment and not be attached to the outcome. There is something so beautiful about being a women, being a mom- we cuddle our cubs till death do us part. At times we give away our power of motherhood not trusting our instincts. Attachments to the outcome of our lives only set us back.

MamaBlogger365 – The Clock Is Ticking by Kasey Edwards

Despite managing teams of people and multimillion dollar budgets in my professional career, and thinking that I knew a thing or two about hard work, stress and responsibility, nothing compares to the responsibility of motherhood. I have never worked so hard in my life. I have never been so tired and so stretched to my limits. And I am quite certain that my performance has never been judged and critiqued so harshly and by so many people.
