Does 1x every 6 months constitute a blog?

May 19, 2007 at 12:28 am (Uncategorized)

I belong to an online community many of whom blog regularly. I’m ALWAYS on this board chatting away, but I rarely read my online friends’ blogs. I’m not sure why? Maybe I feel too boring for the blogging world. I mean I’m a married mother of 2, have a nice steady job working for da man, I vote, drink regularly, bla bla bla. What’s there to write about? And not giving of myself, I feel like I shouldn’t receive either? Well, I guess that means that I’ll have to start posting again, because I clicked on one of my online friends’ blogs and found a link to another online friend. One who hasn’t been posting much lately because she’s been hurt by some online drama that affected our little online community. And I really care about this friend and I want to read her blog. So here I am giving of myself, so that I can receive of others.

So what’s exciting that’s happened to me lately? The most exciting things that happen to me don’t even happen to me, they happen to my children. Yes, here is where I become a boring mom, talking non-stop about her children. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before….. huh? too bad, you’re hearing it anyway — I mean, it’s my blog!

My little girl just turned 3 and my little man just turned 1. It’s an old cliche, but time sure does fly. It’s so fun watching them develop their own little personalities. My girl, I’ll call her princess, because right now, that’s her favorite thing. Princess is such an interesting little person. She definitely knows what she likes and dislikes. She has an opinion on everything. But she’s SO generous too. Whenever she’s eating something she likes, she wants to share it. Ok so she really doesn’t eat that much. Whatever. It’s still generosity. It’s the complete opposite of me. When I eat something I love, I want to hoard it all to myself. I look at this tiny little aspect of her that’s so unlike me and wonder where did THAT come from? It’s amazing that even though this little being came from me and her daddy, she’s her own little person. She’s unique. She’s different from him and me. WOW.

My little boy, I’ll call him the wee man, because that’s what my scottish boss calls his son and I’ve always liked the sound of that. The wee man is all boy. He’s fearless. He’ll go down the big slides if we let him. He’s always climbing. But he LOVES his sister. He’ll stop whatever he’s doing to mimic her. He copies her non-stop. It’s so cute. He’s also just about to walk. He can stand himself up from a sitting position now. I can’t wait until he walks, because to be honest, I’m sick of carrying him everywhere…

My co-worker the other day asked me if we were thinking of having a third. To which I gently but firmly replied in the negative. She replied that she thought I would have more because of the incredible glow I get on my face whenever I talked about my kids. A third…. hmmmm… I do admit I still get the baby bug from time to time. But I’m pretty sure we’re done.

So how do you stop writing? I feel like I’ve written a book, but a book without a point, so I can’t find a logical place to stop. I mean usually you stop when you’ve made a point, but since I don’t really have one, what do I do? Ok, I’m going to stop… NOW. See you in 6 months…
