Boring Blogging.

(Semi) Recently a friend of mine told me he only reads my blog when I am pregnant.  Because he is a single man with no children, I found this to be a bit strange at the start.  When he explained that when I am pregnant my blog is full of rants about rude strangers, various people needing chops, and the like, it is much more interesting.  To be fair, he is right.

I mean, I could blog about our every day doings.  But one of two things would happen.  First, I could be like a lot of bloggers and pretend like everything is a super fun time and life is one big vacation, but to be super honest I stop reading blogs like that pretty quickly.  Also our life is not really like that, so it may be hard to filter my blogs that way.  Second I could tell you all about what life is really like.  You know, the nitty-gritty laugh-and-cry stories you know I am having on a regular basis.  Oh wait.  Now don’t get me wrong.  I do love my life.  But sometimes (a lot of the time!) my life is very very very boring and repetitive!  What!?!?!  I know, it’s weird, but I don’t think anyone really wants to read a story about how I went to Target and didn’t have a need to chop anyone because it was 8am and we were the first ones in the store because we had been up since 6am and were going stir-crazy at our house.

On top of all that, a third problem seems to arise to stifle my blogging.  When I am pregnant apparently I want to chop everyone in the neck, but when I am not pregnant (coming up on 22 months now!) I tend to see life a little bit more like it is (maybe) and how I see it is often WE are the ones in need of a chop.  What?!?  That’s right, usually it’s me with the small human at Costco screaming at the top of her lungs that she “neeeeeeeeeeedssssssss outttttttttttttt!!!!” or the one trying to stop a different small human from taking every thing off the shelf at Target before I can put it back on, and meanwhile blocking the entire aisle for damage control.  I know, right?  And probably I should take back the ‘we’ because really it’s ‘me’, but I like it.  It seems the more kids I have and the older they get the less I tend to judge others, especially parents.  Lots of things that I used to think “my child won’t be doing THAT!” have fallen by the wayside while a new wave of understanding of why you just might buy your toddlers a pack of fruit snacks they are begging for just so you can get your grocery shopping completed.

Anyway, that was just a random way of saying sorry my blog isn’t so exciting.  Maybe someday I will grow another human and will have lots of mean things to say about others needing chops, but until then, let’s all just take a nap.

    I love your blog! I get bored with the “it’s so awesome all the time around here and I only have uplifting thoughts” blogs, too. Or envious. I mean, is that really true? What am I doing wrong?

    But your chop in the neck posts are soooooo great.

    I never have to get even with my children for their behavior. My grandchildren do it for me:)
