When I started this blog six years (!) ago, I was looking for community. I desperately wanted to discover that my everyday loud, crazy life was normal.
I wanted the comfort of knowing we weren’t the only accident-prone family who had a frequent shopper card at the ER.
I wanted to connect, to spill out my heart and most of all, I wanted to find you.
I didn’t know when I hit publish on that first post half a dozen years ago, that it would change my life. I didn’t know it would bring out the dormant writer in me and I would have never dreamed it would give me the opportunity to connect moms here with moms there.
I’m glad I didn’t know how beautiful or how scary life would be for this introverted momma.
And around this time of year, I like to pause and celebrate this space with you.
My little girl is six. She feels really big, but I’m old enough to see she’s still a baby. But my dog is also six and she’s starting to sleep a lot more and leak urine when she’s excited. We all know six in dog years is really more like 42.
I’m *this close* to 42. Do you see where this is going?
Blog years are like dog years and so let’s just hope the rest of us don’t leak, okay?
So, dear ________ (insert your name here), thank you for reading. If you didn’t, this would be a diary and not a community.
