Too consumed by parenting? Is that possible?

Over the past 8 years, I've often said "being a mom is my life" or "my son is my world." I thought of those phrases earlier today when I was sitting having lunch with my good friend. We were talking about different things and I said something along the lines of "I've probably allowed being a mom to consume too much of my world."

I just wonder is that possible. I think protecting, providing for and teaching my son is my #1 job in life and everything comes after that but at what cost? I don't date and haven't been in a relationship in 9 years (because I don't want to bring men around my son), I pretty much never get out and do anything that's not kid related and all of my choices well, most are dictated by the thought of how will this affect my son.

One potential downside I see is that my son could become self-centered. I already see a bit of this (could just be the age)now. I think he has gotten so used to having all of my time, that he just expects it. For instance, a couple of Fridays ago, I arranged for him to stay with his dad rare event and he begged me not to make him stay. He even asked me if I was going on a date..LOL!

This parenting thing is tough...

Happy September!!

So we have made it successfully to the end of the second week of school and things are going pretty well! The 2 scary teachers are not quite so scary anymore maybe the fangs just haven't come out yet and the little one seems to be settling nicely into 3rd grade. The other day, I actually heard him say he's starting to like school. I'm so wondering who kidnapped my child proud of him!

A letter came home today saying that he was chosen to be a student council representative from his class..and he actually wants to do it. Again; still wondering what happened to my real child proud of him.

School is back in full swing for me as well and I've already missed an assignment. The realy question is...who the hell gives that much work during the first week of class? Who does that?! I just need to try and stay ahead and stop blogging and go do tonight's assignment stay focused.

Anywho..happy September all..I'll be around more or not...
