As I sit here, writing my very first blog posting on my very first blog, someone is shitting on my lap. “What?”, you may ask. “I’m a mother”, I would say. “Oh.”
Ok, it’s been a few hours since I started writing. Since then I’ve cleaned the baby’s bum, fed my daughter, cleaned her bum, fed the baby, cleaned his bum again… I think you get the idea. Now the baby boy is sleeping and my husband is putting our daughter to bed, so I thought I would sit down and try to finish my first blog post.
Since we’re going to be friends now, I should probably tell you a little bit about myself. I’m 28 years old. I’ve been married for 5.5 years. My husband is way too good for me. My grammar used to be impeccable but since my days currently revolve around poop and food (see above), my knack for punctuation seems to have suffered. I have a 2 year old daughter and a 4 month old son. My children are much sweeter, smarter and happier than anyone else’s.
You may be wondering why my children are so amazing- “What’s your secret?”, you may ask. “Well, if I told you, it wouldn’t be a secret…but ok, it’s because I love them more.” I would say. I would only say this to you on my blog though, if you stopped me in the mall and asked me why my kids were so sweet, I’d probably tell you that it’s because I carry them in slings all the time and potty train them really early and let them sleep in my bed. Or I’d just smile and keep walking, because some days, I really don’t feel like talking to random people who stop me in the mall- no offense.
Ok, so now it’s been another hour- my daughter wanted me to put her to sleep after all. And what with the co-sleeping, I just had a nice nap in my bed.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my first blog post. It’s taken me all day to write. I’m listening to Ingrid Michaelson.
