My first post

So I finally have a blog. I didn't know I needed a blog. I still don't know if I need a blog. My friend, Deb, has assured me that I have enough silly events to fill a land mine and it would be worth it to share them with others.
Now, I'm not sure that sharing events like going out shopping last Friday in my slippers because I forgot to put on shoes is the most important topic in the world, but I guess it's good for a laugh.
I think of blogging as a way to remember events for myself. What do I hope to achieve from blogging? Ummm...

1. I would like to find reassurance that the rambunctious and sometimes frustrating activities of two young boys are not only normal, but also endearing
2. I'd like to hear about other moms' (and dads') ideas of how to handle certain...challenges that show their face during child rearing
3. I'd like to chronical the special moments that make us who we were, who we are, and who we hope to become.
4. Most of all, I'd love to connect with family and friends and meet many wonderful new people out there waiting to be discovered.

A quick note: I am a terrible typer and I do not always check all of my spelling. Please be kind, oh blog-mates, and know that if I would slow down, I can actually spell.

So here's to wonderful future of blogging. May we all become better people for having shared a piece of ourselves with others.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and welcome to the blog world!

That piece I wrote was about me, years ago. I took piano lessons when I was 10 for about two years and then had to quit. But I loved it so much I taught myself the rest. I'm not a music major or anything but I still love to sit at the piano in the heat of emotion and create my own pieces. Or play my favorites with real passion. It really helps me understand everything I'm feeling.

Great way to chronical the craziness of life and vent at times too - I'm reading a book that everyone that reads this comment (regardless of the age of your children, grandchildren, or no children...you get it)

Yes, Your Teen is Crazy - Michael J Bradley

It is amazing to me and has given me an entirely different outlook to my teens and will help immensely with my babies...

Take Care - chat with you soon...
