I’m beginning to think I might be getting good at this whole blogging thing.
I also might be getting ahead of myself.
Week two is going splendidly — being new to the SAHM gig. The Nuggets have their days. Days where they whine incessantly. Days where they just want to sit in my lap and snuggle (OMG how was I missing days like this before??). Days where they don’t nap well and they are just plain terrors. Days where they eat and days where they don’t (not surprising). The game changer is that I’m here with them for each day. It’s amaze-balls.
I read a lot of blogs. I read them because it helps me feel like I’m winning at this whole mom thing. Sometimes, I’m bad about comparing myself to them (to which I NEVER match up) and I have to stop myself because everyone presents their best foot forward (me included). But my kids are loved and, more importantly, alive at the end of each day so I consider that a W I N.
I read blogs for entertainment. Some of these bias are hilarious. I might crack myself up but dang, I enjoy laughing at others.
I also read blogs for advice. There are A LOT of people out there that had kids before me, believe it or not. They have lots of good advice to offer. Yes, I can obtain advice from friends and family but it’s also nice to seek out “one sided” advice. Meaning, I can pretty much find someone who will validate me in what I thought was right/correct/the best way to blah blah blah. Yes, I like it when the world wide web agrees with me. In all seriousness though, sometimes I just need a confidence boost.
I have like 20 followers and thats okay. I write my blog for me. I L O V E that other people read it and like it (or even hate it) but it’s for me and as long as the world doesn’t end — as it does in every book I’ve been reading lately… I miiiiight be a bit into dystopia fiction recently — the Nuggets might even be able to go back and read about their beautiful, yet nuts, Mama.
By the way, have I told you they are F I N A L L Y calling me Mama!?!?!??!?!?!!!!! It’s glorious.
So even though I am not perfect, I’ve got a great grasp on what I want out of my blog and I’m getting pretty good at it.
Now for what you and I really want:
I should work on getting in front of the camera more often. You know you want to see this face.
Who said I was perfect? 🙂
