Blogger: Chaton's World, North Shore
Watching the Democratic National Convention reminds me of how much my life has changed. No, I haven’t stopped wearing blue and started wearing red. Instead, it has hit me that I have become a mother.
Rather than being at the convention wearing my cute dresses, attending parties and catching up with my peeps, I am in Pittsburgh where I live now going to work, typing this blog post on my couch and watching Michelle Obama give her speech on television. I’d like to say that I am happy about my choice, but at this moment, “I have lust in my heart.” I am lusting after being at the convention HARD!
Even though I love being a mom, sometimes the responsibility of being a parent interferes with my plans.
Chatón T. Turner is raising her tenacious toddler on the North Shore with her fiance. In addition to being a mother, attorney, and public speaker, she has been an avid blogger since 2007. She also writes as a freelancer for "Parent Society" magazine.
