Happy Birthday!

IMG_4504I recently celebrated my birthday by throwing a half-birthday party for my son (I was 39 weeks pregnant on his actual birthday and we were basically snowed in so I opted for a family weekend away rather than a party), which was a great way to catch up with my friends while giving my son the cupcakes and balloons he’s been begging for.  But enough about me.

Today marks the two-year birthday of this blog.  Before I became a parent, I was a total blog skeptic.  Why would anyone care what some random person thought about food, style, movies, cats, etc.?  But faced with a million tough parenting choices, postpartum hormones, and new insecurities, I found solace in mommy blogs.  First, I read the blogs of my friends (Mama Instincts and Mama Thyme, among others); then I fell down the rabbit hole and discovered an online community of women sharing ideas, advice, fears, resources, research, recipes, and more.  Reading these posts – whether informative, hysterical, heart-breaking, helpful, adorable, or just interesting – made me feel less alone.  The more mommy blogs I read, the more i felt compelled to join the conversation.

This blog has not garnered many followers (to be fair, I have done nothing to promote it), but it has provided a place for me to articulate my experience as a working mom.  I am very grateful to those who read what I have to say, since that is what motivates me to continue writing.  Now that my journaling, knitting, poetry, beading, song-writing, dancing, and other hobbies have mostly been eclipsed by parenting, this blog remains one of the last things that I do just for me.  So thank you for listening – it makes this effort feel a little less selfish.  🙂
