Stella challenged us to write a six word memoir — or a series of memoirs for the New Year. I responded on Mothers With Cancer earlier in the week, but I think maybe I was too negative. See what you think.
2008 six word memoir (written in July and posted as twitter bio):
Scientist. Stay-at-home mom. Survivor.
2009 six word memoir (written for MWC):
Mother with cancer, trying to forget.
2009 six word memoir, if I were to write it today:
Mother of boys. Come play trains!
I think I like the last one best.
In 2009, I am going to remember (or try to remember) to enjoy every moment. And to remember that none of us know how long we have here. And wouldn’t it just suck if I spent the whole year cleaning and trying to be the perfect housewife (yes, I shuddered too, but I spend so much time on the #$%@$#$ laundry and picking up, clearly it’s a motivator), when really all I needed to be was Mommy?
Gotta go. We’re going to set up a new train track after lunch.
