Oh no, not another one! One more Mommy Blog to take up some space on the web. However, I will make a promise now to state things as they are and not to fluff the truth that is my life. If my kitchen is a mess that I have yet to clean up 4 hours after the fact, then I'll say so (see, I just did and I might even let it stay that way for another couple of hours, gasp!). If I give my daughter fast food chicken nuggets just because I don't feel like fighting a losing battle then I'll admit to it, though a bit sheepishly. If my dogs chew up the kids puzzle pieces, I'll admit to my failure of adequate supervision. If I have failed to do anything about the extra 40 pounds I'm carrying after baby monkey #2, then I'll share that information as well. There is one stipulation to all this, no one gets to tell my Mom about my escapades. I'll thank you in advance for that one.
I have followed several other Mommy blogs and they all have their strengths and weaknesses and I don't expect this one to be any different in that respect. My intentions for this blog are to recount the events in my life, however mundane, and share the ups and downs as we go along. Also, as a semi-compulsive shopper, I'll share my reviews on any products I deem worth mentioning, whether they be good or bad. My family is unique, just as all families are, and I feel it's worth sharing our side of things. It's my opinion that the more information you have from different perspectives, the better off you are. You might even feel some camaraderie in the blatant imperfections of my life. I strive to better my life, as well as my family's lives, and I welcome you on that journey.
