Figuring it out

I am still feeling my way with this blog. Learning what it is about and what I want it to be. I like that it is a mismatch of the kids and me and my addiction to giveaways. Because that is where I am and who I am right now.

I do wish I had started blogging sooner. It's not that I didn't know about it. I even have a good friend who is an avid blogger. But for some reason I didn't think it was for me. Maybe I was too scared to put part of myself out into the great unknown. Maybe I was worried that I don't write well enough for other people to want to read me. I don't know. I feel now that I have missed out.

I am loving discovering the mommy blogging community and wish I had joined after the girl was born. It would have been great to connect with others. Maybe if I hadn't met my friend M. while I was on maternity leave I would have found blogging instead. Lucky for me M. became my "mommy buddy" and daily phone calls with her got me through the rough nights and crazy days. Now that she is across the country blogging seems to be the next best thing.

I want to mention three of the mommy bloggers I have been following these last few weeks. I was checking up on them today and feeling their sadness. They are all struggling with the illness and loss of their children. While I don't know Heather, Shana or MckMama, I have been thinking of them everyday.
