Friday Question: How is it going?

Updates - oh goody!

"Ooh - updates! Oh goody!!"

This week’s Friday Question comes from World Moms Blog writer Tara B.

“It’s time for a where-are-you-now past post update.  Pick one of your posts from WMB and let us know how it’s going for you on that topic.  Did you learn something new?  Is that project completed?  Was the problem resolved?  No news to speak of?  Give us a quick update on where your story has gone since your post.”

Here is what some of our World Moms reported…

Margie Bryant of Arkansas, USA writes:
“In March, I wrote a post titled Closing the Door about the very painful decision that I would not be having anymore children.  It was a hard post to write and even though my life has changed for the better in so many ways, finally saying “no more babies” out loud made it real for me.

Then, a few weeks after that post, I found my dream job.  Cliché, but true.  I am pursuing a degree in management and technical writing and found a job where I am training to take over for the current Human Resource Manager.  This job pays more than I have earned in the past and at the same time, my ever supportive partner took a new position too.  Finally, we are able to indulge ourselves and our children and even put money back in savings.  We talk about traveling, buying a new home, getting another car; suddenly, I feel at complete peace with exactly how our lives are now.” (more…)

WASHINGTON, USA: “Privacy, PLEASE!”

I have always been a modest person, and I think I got that from my mom. It may have been a generational thing (she was born in the 1940s), or a cultural thing (she was born and raised in South America).

In any case, I remember that once I got a little older (maybe around first or second grade?), I wasn’t allowed to take baths with my brothers anymore, and I was always instructed to get dressed and undressed in the bathroom, by myself, behind a closed door.

This stuck with me, and as I have aged, I have continued to be a demure person…whether it be at the doctor’s office, in the shower and locker rooms at the gym, or even in the privacy of my own apartment.

Enter labor and childbirth… (more…)

Eva Fannon (USA)

Eva Fannon is a working mom who lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her hubby and two girls. She was born and raised on the east coast and followed her husband out west when he got a job offer that he couldn't refuse. Eva has always been a planner, so it took her a while to accept that no matter how much you plan and prepare, being a mom means a new and different state of "normal". Despite the craziness on most weekday mornings (getting a family of four out the door in time for work and school is no easy task!), she wouldn't trade being a mother for anything in the world. She and her husband are working on introducing the girls to the things they love - travel, the great outdoors, and enjoying time with family and friends. Eva can be found on Twitter @evafannon.
