A blog from a Mommy who thinks she’s cool and wants you to know why.

Who am I?

So THAT’s the question. I will tell you all this. My name is Heather, I am a mother and a (practically)wife. I have a daughter named Lilly, born 11/28/06, and in my eyes, she makes this world go round, quite pleasantly at that. My (practically)husband name is David, or to my family(as there were already too many Davids) Anthony. Without any extra effort, he gets me to make these cheesy smiles and do the classic old movie one leg lift when he kisses me.  Without these two people(and for this blogs sake, they will also be my muses) I wouldn’t be me.

Which brings me back to where I started, who am I? Well, I am a 21 year old girl who is still growing but sometimes is waaay more grown up than her “grown up” friends. I spend my days with my best friend, my daughter, who even at the young age of two, understands all my problems, comforts me, and listens to me, even if her only response is “rock!”. I am a college student, studious as possible with a toddler, trying to become a nurse because I know it’ll be the best way for me to help people, and be the only job that makes me feel whole, even if it means coming home after a long days work needing a cry because a patient I connected with didn’t make it.

I want to be a pediatric nurse for two reasons.
1.) This being the reason that led me to this path, my daughter(as anyone who reads this will understand by now, I am her Pluto and she is my Charon). When she was born, it was the most absolutely wonderful, blissful day of my life. From that moment, I knew that there would forever be one person who I would sacrifice everything for. Three days after she was born, we found out there was something wrong, we had to go back to the hospital, where we figured out that she had Cystic Fibrosis. Because of this, my daughter will require a lifetime of medical care. Becoming a nurse will help me in my daily caring of my daughter, and this is my “selfish reason” for becoming a nurse, but there are many more than just that. I originally wanted to become a neonatal intensive care unit nurse, because of how much those nurses helped me in my time of need, I wanted to pass that on. But
2.)I want to be a pediatric nurse because I want to connect with patients, not just the parents. Kids are just so amazing, and to see kids who go through such hardship are awe inspiring. I do not want to do this for the awe, but because I want to make a difference in a child’s life, to give them one extra reason to smile among the many reasons they already have, and among the many more reasons to not. I want to do it for the parents, too. With all that Lilly has gone through, nurses really do make all the difference. I had the most amazing nurse when Lilly was last in the hospital, that came in once to check one of her moniters when Lilly was sleeping and I was having my time to cry. She not just reassured me, but she listened, gave me a hug, and it was just the most amazing thing a stranger has ever done for me. That’s the nurse I want to be.

Sorry, but I’m not done with who I am yet, because as easy as it would be, I am not just a mother and a college student/aspiring nurse. I’m this total goofball who is as loyal as can be to her friends. I have amazing friends by the way. I never like to see anybody cry, and am always willing to lend a shoulder to help dry anyone’s eye. I love tattoos, I have already aquired a few and will eventually get more(sorry Dad). I love musics, and my (practically)husband and I’s #1 reason we leave town is to go to a concert. It’s just exhilerating and each it’s own experience. Since I am always surrounded by new music, I can’t list all my favorite artist without further boring you. So I will instead list my favorite genres: Punk, Psychobilly, Rockabilly, Hillbilly(-50’s country), Nu(ish) Rock/Metal), Alternative, Folk, Industrail, Hip Hop, Nerd Rap, and Big Band. I think that’s it. I love to read, I visit the library every week, even if I haven’t finished the book I am reading. I change(d?) my hair almost every month, though I think I have found a red I will stick with for awhile and am going to try and grow my hair out. I have no idea how to describe my style because it’s a little bit of everything with some heavy eye make-up thrown in. I never have any money, or gas, so I walk almost everywhere. I do not work, but who says full time student/mommy isn’t a time consuming enough of a job? I enjoy watching shows from my childhood, and I also enjoy watching science shows. I love movies, especially horror, even if it still gives me nightmares. I have a paralyzing fear of zombies which has nothing to do with my previous sentance. I’m a socialist who does not let my (practically)husband’s “republican” beliefs get in the way of my free thinking. And by the way, he’s actually a registered democrat who without acknowledging it has become a libertarian. My favorite things to do are cuddling and dancing with my wonderful family. I have two cat’s, Gambit and Zoey, best cats ever. I hate to end this with a note on my cats, but I can’t think of anything else to say about me. Oh yeah, I love math>>nerd<<
