"I started a blog."
"Really, you did? When? "
"Yeah. On Mother's Day. You're the only one who knows about it, other than Ian."
"Hah! Karen, you're SUPPOSED to tell people about it!"
That was a conversation between myself and my tech savvy IT brother. About a blog that I started 5 Mother's Days ago. About my thoughts, my ramblings, my weirdnesses all captured on the internetz for at first, just me ... but eventually the whole 'nuther world.
My girl was just under 5 months old. My boy had just turned 5. I was exhausted and sleep deprived (you can tell here.) But I liked to read. And I loved to write. I think I've learned to write a bit better through the process. Not so much lately, though.
Because at five years older, not necessarily wiser -- I am still exhausted and sleep deprived.
But a very happy mother nonetheless.
Hope all you Mamas out there had a wonderful day!
