Motherhood in 2013

I chose to add a motherhood section for just that…a place to share my life experiences, conversations with my now teen-daughter and her thoughts on our relationship.  I plan to use this space to help new and/or experienced mothers with everyday life as a 2013 mother.

For those of you who know me, can appreciate my life is viewed as a little unique.  I chose early on to only have one child because of my military work life.  Being active duty military and a criminal investigator definitely has its challenges. But wait, through in the fact that I am also a celebrity make-up artist and cosmetics brand owner, I am sure it puts me in a whole new category.  I am always on the go but I have ensured my “mini me” aka Livi, has ALWAYS been my number one concern in all my life decisions.

Switching gears… (ADD time) I am sitting here waiting for her to get out of counseling (I will get into this at a later date) and I notice a man walk out of his office with an exhausted and miserable look on his face.  I wonder, is he having a bad day or does he despise his career that much?  Look, I am a firm believer if you are unhappy with what you do for a living then you are not living in the career you were supposed to be doing.  There are days I wonder… what if I completed college first?  Would I be making more money?  Would I be happier?  Would “mini me” be in my life?  I remember exactly where I was when I “knew” I was pregnant.   Yes, I say “knew” because I actually felt it.  I told “the dad”, “I think something is wrong.  I think I am pregnant.”  He frantically yet excitedly, ran to the store for a home pregnancy test… and… YUP!  Positive!  So “the dad” hurries back to the store for two other different company home pregnancy tests… and… YUP! YUP!  Positive! Positive! Internal instinct correct!  Little Livinoodles was growing inside me at the tender age of 18.  I was a brand new Air Force member at my first base and scared shitless.  Who would of thought?  She is the best thing that ever happened to me!
