I Rock!

Monday's homework at The Sisterhood was to come up with five reasons we rock.

I love this homework. If you are anything like me, you could list off what you think are personal shortcomings all day long without a second thought. This was really challenging to me, but important to help me keep going.

Can you come up with five truly awesome things about yourself?
  1. I gave birth to a 9 lb 2 oz baby boy. At home. No drugs. Just me and my midwives.
  2. In my previous profession as a nurse I saved lives. For real. Like, I helped keep people from actually dying. Conversely, if it was their time, I helped them do it in the most dignified and painless way possible.
  3. I am a fantastic cook, and now I am learning how to be a fantastic cook without a lot of butter and sugar to help things along.
  4. I am a stay at home mom to three kids age six and under. I think I deserve a superhero cape for that one.
  5. I am here. Working to become healthy and fit. Again. I thought I was ok with how I was, but I know I was just trying to kid myself. So, I came back.


  1. no drugs????

    ladies of the hood - we have officially found she-ra!!

  2. Loved this!!! My husband wasn't quite comfy with a homebirth, but both of mine were completely natural, home in 12 hour, births. You SO rock for that!!!

  3. First of all, #1. OHMYGOD. You are a goddess. For reals.
    I love your post. You truly rock.

  4. I bow to you!!

  5. I have to say homebirth with no drugs, wow and then that big. Sheesh. My third was 9# 7 oz but I had nubain for the pain. Being a nurse so cool. You rock.

  6. i thought you sent me your address somewhere because you won the "I Rock" giveaway so long ago, but I don't seem to have it!!! Can you send it to me??
    congrats girl!!
