Isn't it amazing, being a mom? I truly believe it's the best thing that happened to me and I love my kids. But combining it with loving geeky things can give you some struggles from time to time. It's not that my kids mind their mom being geeky, but other people are really easy to judge.
Do I care so much about what other people are saying? Well not anymore but there was a time I did. A time where I believed that I just had to be a mom and keep away from the things I love outside being a mom. Because let's face it you can't be a good mom and also fangirl about let's say Supernatural and Jensen Ackles. You're a grown woman and you should act like one.
Well I found out for myself that they are wrong! I love being a geeky mom, my children learn all about dragons and wizzards and yes as my husband collects skulls they see them in the living room. They are okay with it, they don't know better and I love the fact that my kids grow up knowing about these things and accepting them.
My daughters although not having seen the movie The nightmare before christmas ( they are 1 and 3 ) they know who Sally and Jack are and the last time we visited Disney they both chose a little Sally pluche as their gift. Don't get me wrong if they'd chosen a princess I was just as happy. But the fact that they don't find Sally strange just makes me happy.
If I tell other moms I'm visiting a con dedicated to Supernatural, that I spent money on getting my picture taking with them and getting their autographs, they just look at me like: aren't you to old for this? And let me tell you: No! I'm not to old for this because you know what beside the fact that I love being a mom a also love being me, being the woman I was before I was a mom!
So are there any moms out there? Did or do you struggle with the same thing? Let me know in the comments.
