Every time I want to blog about my kids – something they did, something I reacted to or something that is is going on I hear Rebecca’s voice in my head “how will your kid feel reading this?”
She is very mindful of what she posts about her son and when I am posting something emotional or “serious” – like the drama last week I hear her voice a little louder. I often post anyway but it is more than likely a little watered down.
It is becoming more and more of an “issue” now because Cameron is online a little more – he has a FB account – he is friends with about 10 people – if that and I monitor it but he does google and he does ask me about blogging and twitter and what not. So I am more aware now that there may come a day (sooner rather than later) when he finds harassedmom.
We will deal with that when it happens though – hopefully there will be no running away, throwing camp cots or beating his chest while he howls to the moon.
This quote was in my FB feed this morning and it was one of Oprahs “light bulb” moments!!!
And Jen from Your Pregnancy said something on Saturday at the Huggies Momville Launch. (I am quoting her loosely here – I have not graduated to proper media yet with notepad and pen in hand madly scribbling the good bits)
She said something along the lines of “start a blog because someone somewhere needs to hear what you are saying and know they aren’t alone”.
If by blogging about what we are going through helps one mom to not feel hopeless and lost OR to feel “HA! I am at least doing better than her” – then my work here is done.
I really just wanted to share this quote today but don’t like those posts with just quotes so I had to ramble for half the page!!!
I promise there will be more interesting content tomorrow – there shall be a post on Home schooling and why we are seriously considering it!!
How was your weekend???
