>’Tis the Season

July 28, 2010


There is a season for everything they say.

Elizabeth Flora Ross, over at Writer Revived, is writing about her season as a Stay At Home mom. Ericka, over at Alabaster Cow, guest posted there this week on her season of working on a novel (sort of) and trying to still be wife and mother.

I met them both through The Red Dress Club. Finally, a place I really belong – we’re all just a bunch of women, mostly moms, trying to find that balance in the season we are in.

What season am I in?

At the moment it appears that I am in the season of “Cleaning Up What Missed the Potty.”

This season alternates with “Everything Takes Three Times as Long With a Three-Year-Old.”

Or, “I Break Up Arguments All Day”

Once, I was in the season of “I Am Nothing But A Food Source.”

There were other favorites…(and no-so-favorites)

“Changing Diapers Is The Only Productive Thing I Did Today”

Or, “I Spend More Time Commuting Than I Do With My Kids”
Thank you, Lord, that season is a distant memory.

There was the season for “I Accessorize My Suits With Spit Up,” or, “I Love This Baby So Much I Can’t Breathe.”

Soon, the season of “Second Grade Mom” will begin, along with “Little League Mom.” I’ll blink, and it will be “Fifth Grade Graduation” or worse, “High School Graduation.”

Someday, I hope I’ll have a season as a published writer. Right now, it’s just not that season.

There is a season for everything under the sun. What season are you in?

    >I'm wondering right now if I can be in a whole lot of different seasons all at the same time. Because several of the above-mentioned seasons seem appropriate to me and my current life.

    >I have to agree with Cheryl. I would love to freeze time and not let ANYTHING change with my family…except for broken down vehicles, college tuition and the end of strawberry season! Great post.

    >I was just thinking about this today! I want to appreciate every present season and not dwell on the past and futures ones. And the published writer season … maybe after "getting at least 8 hours of sleep" season. Thanks for your great words!
