This post is a very good example of motherhood. I knew the one year anniversary of this blog was coming up and I checked and re-checked the date several times, so I could post something on the actual day. However, I checked and re-checked during a week when I was getting maybe 6 hours of fitful sleep a night, due to a certain toddler who REFUSES TO SLEEP. So it was lodged in my brain that Jan 31 was the date. I even pre-wrote a post, so I wouldn't have to try to think of something decent after what I knew would be a hard weekend. However, I just looked this morning and it was actually yesterday. Even with the best intentions and preparations, motherhood still sometimes leaves you a day late for everything. So, here's what I wrote:
Today markes the one year anniversary of this blog. When I started it Ben was almost five months old. A part of me wishes I'd started it earlier, so I could've captured the emotions of those first few days and months, but I know it mostly would've consisted of posts like, "I'm SOOOOOO tired. I didn't think it was physically possible to be this tired and still be alive. WHY WON'T HE SLEEP?" Although, that statement is still very relevant today. *sigh*
Honestly, I don't have anything momentous to say at this point, I just felt I should mark the occasion. I've made 165 posts in the last year. Thanks for reading them!
