The (Other) Unmentionables (or why I've been MIA)

No, I don't mean underwear :). I mean stuff that you don't usually tell people - even when they insist to know how you're doing, they don't really WANT to hear: "well, wondering if I still smell like the poop I just cleaned".

Or like when I'd just had Andrew, and everyone kept asking me how it was like to have 2 kids with HUGE smiles on their faces. And I mean, I love it now, but back then? Sleeping 3 hours a night? Having a few breakdowns a day? I was still getting the hang of it. So it annoyed me that people seemed to expect me to reply that things were just peachy.

So this introduction is to apologize for not blogging much in the last few days (or months) - I just haven't felt like my motherhood sounded interesting enough. Which is silly, I know, since I love reading about everyone else's motherhoods. But as I've gotten more and more used to my stay-at-home mommy life, 2 things have happened:

1- I've enjoyed it more, since multitasking is now more second-nature;

2- But I've also had less new things to say about it (I was pretty sure I'd already written all my deep thoughts on housekeeping or raising children ).

And I know this is me overthinking this blog, but I'm here to assure you, things WILL change. There ARE more regular posts coming up, horray! :) Just bear with me for a sec. Like I said earlier, a few details of everyday life just aren't too easy for me to mention. Or necessary. Or timely (like NOW I talk about the hard first days of having 2 children, since they're behind me). 

Anyway. Stay tuned for more posts from this mommy who isn't bored at ALL!! (still kicking myself for picking that title - I just happened to be bored the moment I signed up lol :)

I know what you mean about people asking how you are but not really wanting to know the answer. I usually just tell people I'm tired. It's all I have the energy to say without needing to explain :)

I hear you on not feeling like the daily activities of mommyhood warrant a blog post...I then choose to not say anything. It is, what it is sometimes, much as I dislike that saying:-)
