I have not been here much because well, life got too crazy and my priorities changed.. I also started getting jaded with the "blogosphere" particularly parenting related blogs, why? Because people have so many different opinions and beliefs and who is one to say that one has all the answers? I no longer care to read about how telling your kid about the tooth faerie is lying to them or how you must ban the color pink from your house.. or preachings of being gentle (which are good but realistically and in all honesty it doesn't always work that way) I would much rather take advice from parents of adult children who are awesome people.. so that I can take in some knowledge from them, than to listen to a parent of a 10 month old about how they got this whole parenting figured out completely.
We are all constantly changing and growing, the fact that we have children doesn't mean we are done learning ourselves, we will learn new things, change our minds, start anew each day.. we will make mistakes and perhaps have regrets but it's all part of growing, we are far from perfect.
I want to start blogging again though.. I am not sure if I ever came across as preachy or like I had it all figured out.. if I did I apologize and if I didn't .. Phew! I want to continue to put my thoughts out there for whoever wants to read them .... and perhaps if blogger is around that long... as a way my children can go back and have an insight as to how much their mom loved them and how silly and crazy she was though I think they would know that anyway as I damn hope I live to see my great grandkids.. though no one has guarantees on that but I'll be optimistic :)
Anyway... Here's to 2012 and hope you don't mind seeing more of me :)
