Sometimes people post status updates on facebook that are absurdly long. I kept trying to think of what I wanted to write (in a status update) that I was grateful for this year and I couldn't decide because I am thankful for everything. Here's just a few...
-Legs that can run
-Strong arms to endlessly hold my fat baby who wants to be endlessly held
-A stinky, but lovable dog who is constantly underfoot
-A peacemaking introvert husband who enjoys being home with me
-a professional snuggler of a baby who shares his gummy little smile a lot
-The ability to stay positive in the storms of life
-Jobs to pay the bills that are also jobs that don't make us miserable
-The somewhat strange and amazing ability to make milk to feed my chubby baby
-Faith in something bigger than me
-A mind that can read, think, and dream
-A heart full of love
What are you thankful for?

But, now my baby boy is 4 months old and lately I have been feeling like me again. And me blogs. or blogged. past tense. obviously.
I've been reading my favorite blogs and I think I am ready to come back. I can't let my 9 followers down after all. (I think I am actually up to 11 now). So it's time to dust off the cobwebs around here and reopen.
not being a better mother than you) but for me I have decided to keep the blogging about my son minimal. The only reason I bring it up is because I don't want my blog to come across as if the birth of my son wasn't a life altering event or as if I don't love him like crazy.
I will post about me as a mom person, but I will try to keep it about me, rather than about my son.
I will also post about me as teacher person, a wife person, a runner person, and just a person person. In case you've got anything against moms or something. So look out blog world, I'm back.
