Mommy Bio

So, you want to know more about me?   There really isn't much to tell.  My name is Jill, almost 40 years old and experiencing being a mommy for the first time.  It took me a while to get to this place and to be honest, I was not always sure I would.   I don't mean anything exciting about that.   I don't have any uplifting rags to riches story about how I was homeless or a drug addict or abused but bounced back to a beautiful life.   I am just an average, boring woman who dated a bunch of douche bags until my mid-30s.  I finally decided that I needed to date someone that wasn't a 12 year old in a 30 year old body.   Just when I stopped looking and thought I would be one of those glamorous, single, professional women living in a big city -- I met my husband.

I never was in a rush to have kids.   Maybe I am missing a woman gene, but I was never one to ohhh and ahhh over babies and dream of a brood running around a ranch style house surrounded by a white picket fence on a culd-a-sac while our dog and cat sat on the porch watching.  But when I met my husband and knew that he was "the one", I started to wonder what it would be like to have a family with him.   Two years later, we married and one month after that, we (and by we I mean I) got pregnant.   Our beautiful baby boy was born March, 20, 2012.

Let's see.   Oh yeah.  I am an only child.   I have a college degree in business and work from home for a bank, but always wished I had went to med school and was saving lives instead of the bottom line.   I am short, have frizzy curly hair and wear contacts; thus I haven't always had the best self esteem to begin with.   Add the extra 10lbs I still can't lose after having my son and I am pretty much a hot mess.   I am constantly looking for my "passion" but until then I read a lot, and write a lot and clean a lot.   In addition to my son, I also inherited a stepson in my marriage; however, I met him when he was 3 years old so I missed all the baby stuff.   I live in sunny Florida and before my son, I don't recall ever changing a diaper.   Yep, I think that sums me up.

This blog is to chronicle what it is like to be almost 40 and raise your first child clueless, without any previous experience with babies.  I hope you are as entertained reading my blog and I have been writing it.
