My Life In Mommyland

This summer gets FOUR thumbs up!

This summer has been so different from summers past for me. Since having kids in the Turf Lifestyle, my summers have consisted of long days trapped in the house alone with the kids. Even on the weekends we didn’t do much because of Bill’s job, we never knew when the golf course would need him.

What made the difference? My new friends, the women who have become like sisters (or distant cousins) to me…My fellow Wives of Turf. Unlike my blogging buddies and my other friends, these women know what it’s like to live this life.

My new friends know that my husband doesn’t miss out on a lot because he doesn’t want to be with us. They understand why he has to always have his smart phone on his hip. They know that there is no leaving work behind, the golf course might not physically follow him home but it’s always with him.

I’ve been given the amazing opportunity to meet these women from all over the country and all over the world. I’ve been able to take solace in the fact that I’m not alone in this lifestyle, there are thousands of women who know exactly what it means to be a part of the Turf Lifestyle. Over the past year, these other women have been my rock and have probably saved my husband a lot of grief from me.

Living this lifestyle isn’t always easy, but I know when it gets tough they’ll be there to help me through.

Reading the things that the other Wives of Turf do to keep themselves and their children busy during the busy season, when our husbands can’t always be around, inspired me. Their stories ignited the spark that turned into the flame. As I read about vacations and trips to the zoo, all done without the help of their husbands, I realized if they can do it so can I. And The Summer of Mommyland was born.

Never in a million year did I think I’d be a part of such an amazing and inspirational community of caring, funny, and marvelous women. We all live different lives but we are bound in the Turf Lifestyle and it’s a pretty special bond?

What do you draw your inspiration from?
