Green-Eyed Monster

I don't generally consider myself the jealous type. I don't fly into a rage or become suspicious when women talk to my husband. I don't envy my friends when good things come their way. For the most part I'm pretty even-keeled in the jealousy department.

But I must admit the green-eyed monster is rearing its ugly head these days.

Who and/or what am I jealous of????

Hundreds of women who are getting to attend the BlogHer Conference this year.

Let me 'splain.

For a few years now I've been reading all about the great panels, the exciting female bloggers who attend, the so fun they shouldn't be legal meet-n-greets and after hours parties and I WANT TO GO!!

This year the conference is in Chicago. I LIVE in Chicago. Convenient, no?

The conference is also just weeks after Little Ricky is due. No longer so convenient, huh?

Now I know that by the time the conference rolls around I will be so busy and so head-over-heels in love (and let's face it, exhausted) with my new little man that I won't care that I'm missing the conference. I also know that this is just the first in a loooooong line of things I won't be able to do because I am now a mom.

But for now????

I'm jealous.

So, I'm torn by this. New motherhood will definitely become your universe for a little while. But, I hope you'll be able to maintain a lot of who you are by figuring out ways to incorporate Little Ricky into your life. Not with everything, but with enough that you stay true to yourself. Ya know?!

Nilsa, Ricky and I have already talked about how we do not want to become "those" people. You know the ones who can only talk about their kids, only do things that pertain to their kids, etc?

However, this Blogher conference is just a little too close to him being born for me to jet off just yet.

I've never been to Chicago nor BlogHer conference. I have their banner on my blog - I should attend, right? But..I have so many things to do in June - July - it's impossible. I'm jealous too!!!

BTW, good luck - your baby is almost here!! Swinging by through Jess's blog:)

It's completely understandable to be upset and jealous, but you are correct that by the time it happens, you will be so busy, it (hopefully) won't matter!
