Oh sure I’ve dreamed of big name sponsors and zillions of comments like Mama Kat or The Pioneer Woman. But on the other hand I would either have to tone down my opinions or risk alienating a fair segment of the population if that many people actually knew about me.
In case you haven’t already noticed. Or in case you’ve never read my blog before. I can be very opinionated. I think I was born this way. And I’m quite sure I have passed at least a little bit of the gene on to all of my children.
However, being that they are only two and four years old they don’t pay much attention to my opinions. Let alone understand what I’m speaking of when I get in a tizzy about such things as parenting advice, breastfeeding , just plain old stupidity. Yes those are all links to examples of which I speak. Because it would take far too long to explain all of my opinions on those things.
Still, I have to tell someone! And I’m far better at writing about these things than explaining them to another mom at the park while trying to keep all three children within eyeball contact. I can barely finish a sentence under those conditions let alone make a point.
Besides it is my blog and I’ll say what I like, or don’t like as the case may be. But at the same time, I truly do not want to offend anyone. Like people who think active feisty kids just need more structure and discipline, and they’ll fall into line with the rest of the herd. Or people who think breastfeeding is yucky or too much work. Oh and don’t forget people who think having twins is the same as having two singletons (pregnancy included). These people have nothing in common with me. I’m likely to offend them all. And they should just find an escape route or other appropriate emergency exit, and fast.
I really do write the majority of my blog like no one is reading. That is the only way I know how to write. So I apologize in advance if I say the wrong thing, touch a nerve, or upset you in some way. And you didn’t get out before I pissed you off.
But then again there is always the comment box… Go ahead, disagree with me. Point out the errors in my ways. I welcome a little healthy debate.
But beware my Dad reads my blog too and he’ll shoot you down in you don’t have your facts straight. So please be sure you got my point before you trash me.
