This is in response to a question that was asked of me very recently.
I suppose in my small little world that is contained by the four walls of my home, I feel as if I am venturing outside with a little bit of the cyber world. And since the world seems to be enthralled with the lives of those who have a more than average number of children in their home, questions are always asked. Recently I have read a few blogs from other Mom's who blog about their everyday lives with 4 or more children and how they are amused by the questions they are asked also. How it was nothing 30+ years ago for the average family to consist of more than 2 children. Large families used to be the norm. Now you get this look when people find out your pregnant with your third, then your fourth and yes in my case my fifth pregnancy which makes baby number 8 when you add step children into the mix. Twenty years ago, when I was thirteen did I see myself in such a predicament as others would say? No. I wanted two kids. Funny, because that's not what life handed me. That's ok though. I gladly accept the challenge, although there are a few days I feel like pulling my hair out because I get no peace and quiet from the "Mommyyyyy, she touched me!" or the "Stop looking at me." and let's not forget the constant "I'm soooooooo hungry Mom"
So this is why I blog. I like to tell the humerous and funny things that happen during my day, I find that I blog more about Alex my soon to be 3 year old than I do the others. That's because he's with me most of the day. And I'm sure that when the wee little one gets here in March, I'll be boring you with that also. Blogging to me is like keeping a diary, except I'd never tell you my bad little secrets ;) I talk more to children than I do adults. Actually, I'm not really sure I know how to carry on an adult conversation that doesn't consist of words like boo-boo or potty.
And I suppose that I hope some Mother will take pity on me and offer up prayers daily for my sanity. Lord knows sometimes I need it. Ha. Where am I going with this? I really don't know because I was interrupted by my 9 year old and her filthy shirt and I lost my train of thought.
So, hop on board of my crazy Momma train and tell me why you are addicted to blogging!
