Molly Mathews

My name is Molly. I have been married for 5 years and have two children. A 10 year old step-son, a 2 year old daughter and I am currently 26 weeks pregnant with a boy! I live in the town I grew up in and have a large family that I see often. We all live close to each other right now and I hope it stays that way as we draw a lot of support from one another. I have been a nurse for 6 years, mostly in the emergency department, and I love my job. Since young childhood I dreamed of being a nurse and a mom and here I am both! I couldn't have imagined how difficult the journey would be but neither could I have fathomed the Joy that would come from both. Becoming a mom has made me into a better person in many ways and a bit of a crazy worry wart in other ways! Having support from other moms who have been there before or are there with you makes all the difference in the world!


Shopping Cart Full of Emotions

Ever since I got pregnant my emotions have been heightened and my patience is out the door. I really had to take a deep breathe the other day at the grocery store when a older women was giving me dirty looks because my girls were touching the candy at the check out counter. I would like to give that marketing guy a piece of my mind.

It is already a challenge going to the store with a two-year-old and three-year-old, I really didn’t appreciate the looks. But it wasn’t until she commented on my placement of the shopping cart that I lost it. I was struggling to get them both in the car with the cart rolling so I moved the cart to a position where it would stop rolling and this same lady commented on how I was blocking the parking space. I told her I needed to buckle my children first and then I was going to put it away. Normally this comment wouldn’t of bothered me but on this particular day it seemed to send me thought the roof.

So after I got the kids in the car and muttering some unkind words to myself and took the cart uncomfortably close to her car and then to the proper location. I really had to put myself in check to not hit her car with the shopping cart. I asked my husband, “What in the world came over me?” He reminded me of all the hormones racing through my body and I realized that was no excuse and I needed to really put myself in check. Needless to say my husband offered to go to the grocery store next time.

When you were pregnant, how were you emotions heightened?
