Catching Up on the Present

As a mother and child care giver I have had to catch up on many things over the years. One particular conversation came up with my husband when I was knee deep into our own 4 children and countless other child care children through out the week. He asked did you here about (I can't even remember what it was now). My reply was sure in between changing diapers, music time, feeding the children, free play, and doing hands on activities with the children I sat down and had that discussion with the children. He laughed and of course filled me in.

That isn't the first time I have had to play catch up and I am sure it won't be the last. When I was younger our family did away with all music in our home unless it was Religious music. I tell you when I was finally able to listen to other music when I was about 14 or 15 I had to catch up on everything. I am still finding music I hadn't heard of from the time I was away from worldly music.

When I was a child I missed many days of school because my immune system was so weak I would catch anything that came my way. I was one of those kids who had chicken pox 3 times. Needless to say at my worse I only went to school 30/180 days of school. No tutors, lots of homework, and I still kept an A except for gym, they give you a 65 when you can't play enough to pass but not enough to keep your grades up.

I always felt older then the my peers because most of the time I was alone. I had friends growing up but I never had a ton of friends, and still don't go out with friends because I felt I never really fit in. It comes with missing out on so much of the world. You fall behind.

Another example of me catching up on my past was during the year and half that I had gotten bit by a tick and contracted Ehrlichiosis and then when that was just getting better 35 cases of strep, ending with my tonsils being taken out, and a even more weak immune system then I already had. I was so sick that my father and husband took care of my child care while I rested.

My husband would daily bring home movies from Hollywood Video for me to watch. Funny thing is even years later we are re-watching those movies because I don't remember seeing any of them. It was a very rough patch.

As a mother I have been able to see my six children and the children I gave care too, experience things I have never been able to. I see through their eyes, rejoicing in their accomplishments, which fulfills things in me that I was not able to do because of my health. They all bring me much joy in life and keep me current.

Along the way I made my own path, I never fit in with what everyone else was doing. I think I am stronger for it. I don't give up, love life, learning new things, and am always ready for a challenge. Life is not always easy but you have to be able to adapt to change while still moving forward, or the world will eat you up.

Now that you have heard about me catching up on the present lets take a look at a new show on Netflix Streaming called Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I was able to have early access to see this show before it aired, and boy was I taken in from the first episode. If the first episode does not pull me in I rarely watch a second episode.
