When I started blogging, it was a way for long distance family and friends to stay up to speed with the kids. Then, I started blogging to the community of other like minded mom-types. I have to say, I have really really enjoyed blogging and these bloggy friendships.
I notice a trend though of bloggers saying things like, "I am so sorry I haven't blogged for a while," or "I have been really bad at blogging." My first instinct is to say, "Me too." But a new revelation has occurred to me: I developed a life! Not as in, "Get a life." But as in, I don't have as much time for blogging or reading other people's blogs bc I am really doing stuff. Albeit, sometimes that stuff is a nap, but I know you understand. ;-)
I'm not giving up on blogging, I'm just finally accepting the fact that I am a part time blogger.
Three weeks ago I did a promotional shoot (so to speak). Since I wasn't getting paid, I didn't bother to get a babysitter so I drug Ethan along as my "assistant." Here he is helping me get my focus set:
He was an enormous help to me. Anyway, this guy, below, showed up while we were walking back to the parking lot.
He tried to act like he wasn't following us - but here he is a half a mile later. I can hear his thoughts now, "play it cool, play it cool. dammit, why didn't I bring a newspaper or sunglasses?"
I feel kind of bad for Gabriel. Now that he is in school, there are so many more pictures of Ethan. So many times, Gabriel gets in the car after school, sees the garbage on the floor of my car and asks with a hurt heart, "you guys went to mcdonalds today?" And to console him I reply, "yeah, but we already have that toy, so you didn't miss anything." We eat way too much junk food.
Here are a couple of pictures from the last time we babysat Duke (the dog). G was watching Batman and using Duke as a pillow.
For some future posts I have pics from the bike rodeo (G's school), a hike we went on with our friends and a wedding we went to!
