Hocus Refocus

This has definitely become something of a navel-gazing blog, and the more navel gazing I do, the more I start to notice that much of my navel probably ought to be kept private. I didn’t set out to do quite this. My plan was to post more finished, funny, essay-like entries, but I can tell you right now that those take time–and, of course, that’s not time that comes from my kids, laundry or sleeping efforts. It comes straight off my other writing, and it just doesn’t make sense.
Plus, it’s not really the point of a blog. If you’ve finished your thought and wrapped it up with a nice bon mot, what’s the point of anyone commenting? And with no comments, you’re not really part of the community–and being part of the blogging community is what I really like.
So: I think this blog is about to undergo a shift in focus,. I”m still trying to decide what direction I’m headed in. I’d like to say more about my writing efforts, but I’m too aware of the googling potential of editors, agents and their kin, and if you write with a mental gag, you’re barely writing at all in my opinion.
I’m thinking about focusing for a while strictly on the feeding of the devils. I’ve got very strong feelings about how we as a society feed our kids, raising them on chicken nuggets and french fries–yet I was raised that way, in effect, and I’m certainly not immune to the tempations. I’ve got a five-year-old who’s apparently a naturally healthy eater and a two-year old who’d live on goldfish and cheese puffs if she could, and a complete blank slate in three-week-old #3. I’d love to talk about how I feed them, why I feed them what I do and how it’s all turning out, and I think that’s what I’ll do. But not right this minute. I’m going to take a short break from the program, set up the Reading to Babies website and blog tour, finish revising my novel and then embark on this new road.
If you want me to let you know when posting resumes, just comment (it won’t be long; a matter of a couple of weeks). If you want to be part of the blog tour for Reading with Babies, Toddlers and Twos–and get a free copy of the book–comment on that, too, and I’ll be in touch within a week or so!

    Hey… I have lots of fodder (like the choice of word?) for entries about how we feed our children. Maybe someday I’ll write about my thoughts on that too. I have taken lots of pictures of different food labels…

    My #1 is a very healthy eater too… and #2, well, she would live on Mac -n- cheese and chips if she could. She doesn’t eat fruit even. (Fruit is sweet and yummy… She’ll eat chocolate, yes…. but grapes, strawberries, peaches, bananas, apples NO.) (And now she’s refusing to eat vitamins too. Oy vey!) (and before I go on and on… I’ll stop here about the food!)

    Of course I’d love to be on your blog tour. You know I’m a huge fan.

    Okay… to bed for me. It’s very late.

    I am totally intrigued to read about the feeding of children. I try so hard to provide healthy foods and snacks to our toddler!

    The blog tour sounds cool!!! I love reading with our daughter!

    KJ:

    Congrats on Wyatt. K is way too picky and not in a good food kind of way (she lives on mostly peanut butter) and M loves to eat healthy foods and will try anything. I am constantly challenged to find healthy foods for them that will eliminate the need to cook two separate meaks. Please include me on your blog tour.
