My Blog

I finally decided to join the world of blogging. I've been thinking about it for a while now. My sister even said to me last month, "I thought you started that thing last year." Spontaneous I'm not. Anyway, for about a year now, I have been reading blog after blog of other moms who have taken the proverbial "blog jump," sharing the details of their daily lives. The good, the bad and the ugly. I've laughed. I've cried. I've been speechless, excited and confused. I've sat on the edge of my chair, unable to pull myself away from my computer until I find out if today is the day that a fellow mommy blogger's toddler will finally do poo poo on the big boy potty. Oh, and the pride you feel when that big day comes! It's as if her little guy is your own little one. It's a day to rejoice! Because as a mommy myself, I know the excitement that is being felt in that home. It's those kind of little moments that make all of the hard work of being a mom SO WORTH IT and it's fun to be there to share in that excitement. Yes, we moms find joy in the simplest of things.

The mommy blogging world, although huge in numbers, feels like a family. I have quickly come to know several blogging moms, none of whom I have actually met in "real life." However, I feel a special kinship with each of them. They help remind me that I am not alone in doing this mommy thing. I have come to realize that there are some pretty awesome and supportive women out there in cyber world who, just like me, are just trying to get through the ups and downs of each day. And even though I log on every day to catch up with my favorite "blogging friends," looking for a good laugh, secretly I'm hoping to be inspired. Let's just say, I'm never disappointed.

So, welcome to my new blog. I am so glad you found me! I can't promise that I will be all that inspiring but I will be honest and I promise to keep it real.

And to my dear hubby, thank you for surprising me with a new computer and high speed internet! Yes, we had dial-up until last week. I know. Honey, it was so sweet of you to help me start my blogging journey with all sorts of new bling! Even though when I first told you I was thinking about starting a blog, you said "what's a blog?" I know.
