“Being Ok with Being the Okayest Mommy!”

by Blog Director:  Margaret Zupancic

Hi there! My name is Margie and I am the newest member at Full Time Mom. When I was asked to write this blog I wasn’t even sure what a blog was and if I had ever read any before.  When I got present to what a blog was, Well, I actually have read a few in the mom’s magazine section but had no idea that’s what you’d consider a blog.  haha! :) I loved reading them and especially learning from them. Now, I hope I can do the same for you as I write about my journey of motherhood! 

I am married to a wonderful man who makes me work at our marriage everyday for almost 14 yrs., and a mother of three awesome kids.  I have kind and caring boys who are 9 year old twins, and a 9 month old beautiful baby girl who rocks our whole world. Some ask why did we wait 9 years and well it was God’s will to give us a pregnancy and take it away two years before my daughter was born.  With out that lose two years ago I may have never been blessed with the love we all have for her today.

All I ever really wanted to do was be a mom.  I just knew that I would be good at it and well as I sit here to write this I am wearing a t-shirt that says, ‘world’s okayest mom’.  I wear this shirt proudly because there are days that I am great, okay, and days I really need help.  I am no longer a spring chicken at 41 yrs. of age.  But I look to my mother who gives me strength because she was 42 when she had me. At the young age of 84 now, she shows me that if you love your job (being a mom) it can keep you young. She also encourages me to do whatever my hearts desire, which is work and provide a little something more to my family.

Even with all this encouragement, I am still struggling with my mommy guilt,  As I get ready to return to work after maternity leave. All summer long I have struggled with loving my job as a mom and loving my job as a teacher.  I absolutely love making a change in a child’s life besides my own children.  I believe that I have a gift from God to share with the world and this is the way that I have chosen to share it.

I am a teacher who wants to give it my all but while at work I think of home.  When I am home, I am thinking of work and this is getting exhausting. ANYONE feel me on this issue?!?!

My goal this year is to get there a little early and stay a little late and leave my students’ struggles at the door so that when I walk into my home I can give my children the ‘world’s okayest mom’ that I can be. Some of you might be thinking why settle with okay.  I say that if I were perfect then I would have everything and work at nothing.  What kind of life would that be?
