My Blog may be mommy centered but I do touch on marriage…
So there it was every girls dream; their fairy tale ending. Cinderella’s horse drawn carriage riding away with a picturesque kiss; Ariel waving goodbye to her past as a mermaid and into the arms of her prince; Belle and the beast dancing forever in love.
And cut, roll credits, cue popular love song, everyone leave the theater teary eyed and happy…but WAIT! This is real life…this is reality, life doesn’t just stop after a princess weds her prince, after a magical night of dancing and kisses, we don’t wrap up the picture…
Certainly from the looks of our favorite Disney movies, marriage must be magical, every moment after the grand finale kiss. Yes, we’ve heard it before, marriage is tough, but usually this is from relatives who have been married for decades and we are too afloat full with love goggles on to imagine that maybe they know what they speak. I am here to tell you, as a twenty-seven year old, ex bride, of just a year, fairy dust does lift, the quartet doesn’t play on forever, and your fairy god mother dumps you right after you say I do.
I am writing what I am sure many before me have already written. The first year…not only JUST MARRIED …but with a baby. Yes, to add to the difficulty of year one we thought what the heck lets add another player into this theater of chaos. Well of course at the time it was a joyous love musical but I’ll get to the reality check as we go further into day to day…Don’t get me wrong…Despite all the hard work…it is worth it…I love my husband and baby more than anything! But this is a spot for truth and my own thoughts to escape through my fingertips…some turn to music….some turn to exercise…some turn to less appropriate activities…I turn to writing to escape my day to day worries.
So, to sum up, don’t take my venting as me hating my life, i’m simply here to type freely without judgment and with a little humor in the mix!
