Read Me! Read Me!

Well I was thinkng about that quesion of why anyone would want to read my blog. There are a few answers I could give to that. I could say that its because its about my two sons who are of superior intelligence which is totally true but you'd have to take my word for it since you're not here to test their IQ's. I could say its because they are two of the best looking kids you'll ever meet. (Also totally true) Unfortunately kids have this tendency to get older and a lot less cute and then they go through that awkward adolescent stage and then they become men with faces only their moms and girlfriends love, so what good is that? I could say its about all the joys of motherhood which I want to share with the world but then I also share the frustrations and irritations. After all why should I suffer them alone? So I started thinking about why I read other blogs. Some I read strictly because they are funny and everyone needs a laugh now and again. Some I read because I have something in common with the author. For instance I like to read blogs of other moms because I can say 'oh I remember when the 6 year old was doing that' or I can learn something from someone else who did it. It is kind or reassuring to know when you're kids are driving you mad thay it isn't just your six year old who acts maddening, it is all six year olds. I also read some blogs because I aspire to be creative or organized as they are. That's a pretty eclectic list really. I hope that you find my life as entertaining or more so than I do. I certainly have things to share with other moms especially other moms with young kids. I think I could be an effective birth control for the single people out there. Just Kidding. (See comic relief!) Seriously, I believe that anyone can learn from children. (Like how to nap effectively anytime anywhere just because.) So I decided to tell you why I write my blog. I write because I'm a full time mom. That's it. I don't go to the office and become a teacher or banker or manager or nurse although I do all those jobs anyway. I wake up and go to bed as mom. So I needed a bit of a creative outlet. If you knew me personally you would know I love to read. Seriously I have books everywhere, in every room, in drawers and closets. The next best thing is writing. If you have ever taken a creative writing class they tell you that you just have to start writing. You know, make a journal. I could sit home and write all these posts in a notebook, but do you really want all those dead trees on your conscience? See you have to read my blog if only to keep me doing it online and therefore saving many many trees, maybe a whole forest.

You crack me up. Teaching high school children is another great form of birth control. LOL! Keep writing.

Having raised 3 sons and was a stay at home Mom until they all went to school, I would have loved to have had this blogging outlet and the benefit of networking with other Moms. And yes, much writing is required to hone one's writing skills. Mine are still rusty and I've been blogging nearly every day for one year now, and I love it!

Keep it up. It's good for everyone in involved.
