Learning something new...

When was the last time you tried to learn something new?  Did you think it was horribly hard?  Well, I decided that I wanted to learn how to crochet, and guess what, it was EASY!  I thought it was going to be the hardest thing ever, but it was not.  Now, I wouldn't say that I would be calling myself an expert or anything right now, but at least I got over the fear of trying and just went with it!  With two kids, I was scared that there was no way that I would EVER have the time to pick up yet another hobby.  Well, with all the work that is included in being a stay at home mom, I am sure the rest of you can understand.

I love being able to sew and now crochet now though.  Before I felt like my life was not my life anymore.  I was all about my two children, keeping the house clean, and making sure the hubby is happy.  I was happy, but still I was unfulfilled.  NOW that I have something for myself...I feel like a brand new person!  I am very happy that I decided to give myself this time.  What do you do to keep yourself having a little bit of mommy time?  Or do you not give yourself mommy time?

Weird how this post quickly went from trying to tell you all that it is never to late to start something new, to making sure that you get mommy time.  I guess that is what was in the back of my head the whole time.  Soooo, learn something new this week AND have some mommy time with it!  Then come back here and tell me what you learned! :-D


  1. i tried to start knitting but havent gotton very far! its hard with all the mom/ wife tasks i heard corcheting is easier! Maybe ill try that!

  2. I'm glad you learned to crochet!! I love it!! My Grandma taught me when I was ten years old and I've been doing it ever since. It's TOTALLY easy!! =) One thing that I'm starting to learn (when I have the time to try...I have 7 kids!) is,'s really fun! I would LOVE to try my hand at making cloth diapers, but I'm sure that's far away! hahaha
