Oblivious energizer bunny and such

Often times just keep going well most times it's the way to go. I've found that if I'm oblivious to the difficulties that come with four young kids on my I get through it with a smile. When I focus on the how what when where why who I become overwhelmed and pity sets in. I was asked yesterday at work how I did it with four kids under the age of 3 on my own and there's lots of reasons; people dropping off paper plates, myself preparing months of frozen dinners while ready to pop! Amazing friends, family, and an oblivious attitude that to some it was not doable! I think telling someone there choices are awful and not achievable is detrimental and painful. Not something I ever want to say or do. I'm happy I ignored 99% of people and their options and direction " they felt I should take" I'm happy that I went to nursing school when once again the insults came in, if its insulting to educate yourself to provide a better life for your children then he'll yes I'm insulting.

I would not have had the courage to call my birth dad who is a now permanent fixture and I'm over the moon.

I wouldn't have watched my coworker get locked in a cop car lol cause there's no handles!!! Lol awesome day

I would be able to take my kids on day trip to explore and meet birds

Rylie would not have seen Justin Bieber In Vancouver

Birthday trips to Coombs and writing our names in the sand with our new puppy would not be possible on the less than human wage I made as a hairdresser. And of course the lovely covering her face :) wouldn't have met her had I not gone to school.

There's also the pride and accomplishment for me and really grasping the importance of education. No matter your marital status it if you have kids...

I think that is a profound thought--the reason that we are able to do the "undoable" sometimes is that we are simply oblivious --a good character trait! And also a reminder that we don't need to point out the "obvious" to people...great post!
