B is for Blogging

Tonight I was at my parent's house eating dinner for Christmas Eve and someone I had just met asked me why I blogged.

He was like, "Oh, are you getting paid?" I felt kind of lame and said, "No." Then I sat there for about 10 minutes in silence looking at my meat pie. (It's a pie made of meat and potatoes, in case you were wondering.) He looked confused and it made me seriously consider why the heck I am blogging.

Then I answered him.
  • I blog because some days people poop on me, throw up on me, and cry all day. I need someone to hear about it and feel sorry for me.
  •  I like to sit down and revisit my day with a laugh and clear my head to get ready for tomorrow.
  • It helps my sanity. 
  • When I get a chance to reconnect with other moms or people I don't get a chance to visit with regularly because they hear about the glamorous life of a stay at home mom, it makes it worth it.
  • I do it to solicit advice and help from those around me. I have one crazy two year old. And one crazy baby. And one crazy husband. And I think it goes without saying that I'm crazy too.
  • Most importantly, I am blogging to make money to put padded walls in our basement and invent toddler straight jackets.

Even on Christmas Eve.

[The stockings are hung, the children are in bed, and thank you Walgreens for staying open until midnight tonight and for having a Davy-size Santa Snoopy to sit at the table and chairs. For the last week, she has told us every few hours that Santa is bringing her a Snoofy. I couldn't find a Snoofy anywhere, so I hope Snoopy will do.]

Merry Christmas Eve!

  1. I love the "Snoofy" story. Probably because I put in many hours finding "All Four Ninja Turtles" one Christmas many years ago.

    As for the blogging, please continue because you are a fabulous writer and you enlighten many of my days and I am sure this is true of others also.

    Merry Christmas to you, and to all a good night.
