Lots of Excellent Reasons for a Happy Blog

You’re all absolutely right. There are many reasons for a rosy blog– picture. One, which no one mentioned but I’ve thought of often, is that sometimes complaining lets a negative attitude fester and breathe, and no one–least of all me–needs that. As for the comments from the peanut gallery–and by that, I mean friends and family, not real commenters–oh, I do get that. I have had to remind a couple of people that the first rule of reading the blog is that WE DON’T TALK ABOUT THE BLOG!

This is my little venty place, not my call me up and tell me what you thought of it place. But you may have noticed that, in general, my life seems utterly free of other adults, as though I were raising kids in a Charlie Brown cartoon, and that is why. So I will keep my blog of snark, and please don’t anyone kick me off your blogs of varying degrees of sunshine. I can tell you for absolutely certain sure that I wasn’t talking about you.

Meanwhile, isn’t the new look grand and glorious? Even better, it’s all fresh wordpress. I can practically smell that new blog smell. There are a few more things coming, in particular on the professional front, but right now it’s just very good to feel I’ve got a solid happy home.

And on another, completely different note, do NOT take any child under 6 to see A Christmas Carol, and make sure the 6-and-up crew is a hardy one. That’s one scary (but good) flick. Full review here.

    I think your blog is wonderful and it should be required reading for anyone who plans to parent, either through adoption or birth. The happy clappy school of life is fine but not enough.

    I think you just need to be careful that your venting doesn’t come across as singling out Rory. Sometimes in frustration with this transitional time in your family’s life, you make her sound like she’s the problem, when really I’m sure you don’t mean to.

    so you should call me and tell me about new stuff you alluded to in the post since I can’t call you and talk about “the blog.”


Check out In Her Boots!

You see a sexist jerk, the voice of the Modern Pioneer girl whispered in my head. I see a teaching opportunity.

There's nothing my inner super-hero likes more than being understimated.
