why oh why do i keep doing this???????? - Page 3

post #31 of 35
Even in today's world, women are supposed to hold a certain amount of accomplishments in their lives-job, hubbie, kids, home, etc. And with each comes a responsibility we are supposed to have and be the best at for everyone outside our home to decide if it is good enough or not....that's just society---but it is soooooooo nice to do something for ourselves-something that is a selfaccomplishment and makes us proud of ourselves on a different level of kids, home, etc. There will always be critics in our lives but to see someones face and hear those words or oohs and aahs makes all the critics fade away. Every person on this site should give themselves a big hug and a large congratulations on a job well done-no matter what they have done--it takes alot of determination and dedication to cakes and our customers and our families to pull it all together! Hugs to all-Copngratulations to everyone!! thumbs_up.gif

Jennifer, thank you for writing your story, it brought tears to my eyes. I used to be a management consultant and traveled everywhere. When I became a mom I decided to stay home. It has been wonderful, but I too have felt at some point I have lost myself. When I started taking the Wilton courses it was like a light went on. I am so happy and my children are enjoying the benefit of that.

Thank you
Michelle

Thanks so much to all of you for your replies - I definitely feel I've found a great thing and lots of new understanding friends by stumbling across this site!! And knowing I'm not the only one who's had these thoughts or feelings is more comforting than you know!! Funny that it all started with a CAKE !!!! lol icon_razz.gif

Ok - MichelleG - now I have tears in my eyes!!! icon_cry.gif You're right - when we're happy we're much better mamma's, just like our little ones deserve!

Big Big Hugs to all of you!

Jennifer

icon_biggrin.gif ohhh you guys.....make me want to cry icon_lol.gif your so right, i love being a stay at home mom, but i did loose myself also. my self identity became diaper changing, supper cooking, mess cleaning, ect.... now i have all the about tittles plus creative cake decorator!
i am so glad there are others out in this world who know excactly how we all feel.
i have to add, every cake i make, i tell myself "i have to get at least --- this much money for this cake, it took alot of time, effort, expence, and when its time for payment, me and my big mouth blurts out a low price and tells them i am just glad to make it.....i REALLY have to work on that.
happy baking to all

I know how it is with the kids tugging and nagging for icing and wanting to help. I have a 7 year old boy that likes to watch me make the cakes, a 5 year old boy that is my taste tester, a 3 year old girl that wants to do it like mommy, and a 2 year old that is just along for the ride!! OH and my husband that has learned how to make icing bags for me when i am in a time crunch! I do this so that I can be home with the kids and still contribute to the household. I originally took classes to make the kids' cakes but ended up making them for money! I love it. It's my therapy. Let's face it, when its all said and done, We are proud of ourselves no matter how many hours we've been up straight!!! I think 36-48 hours has been my highest so far! I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!
