Next Entry

Well, here we go!

Someone asked me yesterday, "Why don't you blog?"  My response was that I write entries in my head all day long, but never manage to get them down.  With three kids, there are a zillion potential entries a day right there, nevermind the rest of my life.

But then I read journals other mothers keep about their kids... they started them when they were pregnant, and somehow manage to log every milestone, big and small, as it occurs.  And they have pictures to prove them!

Um, Jonny will be five next week.  The last time I touched his scrapbook was on his first birthday.  And Gracie and Levi?  Yeah, right.  Oh, don't get me wrong... I have tons of pictures.  I even have them all backed up in not one, but two places.  Wouldn't want to lose those pictures I keep meaning to get to someday, right?

Anyway, the thing about blogging, particularly blogging about the kids, is that I have this NEED to start at the beginning.  To go back to 2002 when Jonny was born, get all the pictures in order, tell all the stories that go along with them.  And then I get completely overwhelmed and just do nothing instead.

And then stuff like what just happened, happens... Levi, who always sleeps through the night, just woke up.  So I had to go get him, calm him down, fill his cuppy, change his diaper, and put him back in bed.  Of course, when I took him into his room a cat followed me.  Figuring it probably would be a bad idea to shut her in there for the night, I chased her - tiptoeing, mind you - around the room.  Oh yeah, I was quiet as a mouse, and Levi was almost asleep, until I cracked my toe on the damned giant toy-play-something in the middle of his room.  I managed not to yelp, but the giant-toy-play-something started blaring music.  And then Levi fell out of his bed, and I had to do the whole thing all over again.  Well, except change his diaper - that was still dry, thankfully.  And the second time around, I managed to chase the cat out without injuring myself.

Right, so - this is my life.  And I have no earthly idea what I was writing about prior to the Levi-waking-cat-chasing fiasco.  But I'm still writing, anyway, and that's something.  And I'm not going to worry about the fact that I'm not starting at the beginning.

This is it.  This is the beginning.

Hi!  I'm a blogger!

LOL, I know; a friend sent it to me last winter after an 11 hour, 7 kid, too-cold-to-go-outside daycare day when I was just *fried*...
