It is Tuesday, it is so cold that if I went outside and for some reason I decided to cry, I am sure my tears would freeze mid-run down my cheeks. I am still sluggish after recovering from a cold. And it is an uneventful week. I mean, seriously, do you want to know what got me excited today? While running some reports for work, I realized that the current month and the year-to-date field are the same: December. So it meant I got to be lazy and didn’t have an extra field to populate. How awesome is that! Like I said…it’s a slow week.
In the same vein, it is shaping up to be a slow week for blogging. I haven’t jotted down anything on a sticky note about what to blog about this week like I usually do. My sticky note today is completely blank, staring at me in a lackluster fashion, like the rest of the week. So I browsed through my favorite mommy blogs for inspiration to strike me. Here are a few things I found:
Great minds think alike! I find so many versions of things I write on my blog about Lil Z-Bear. It also tells me that I probably don’t really have a single original thought.
I get disproportionately excited when I see a mommy using the same baby monitor/piece of clothing/diaper bag etc. as I do.
When I see a baby wearing the same article of clothing as Lil Z has, I always think Z-Bear wore it better (what can I say, I’m one proud mama!)
All moms tend to exaggerate their babies accomplishments (or perhaps, not so much exaggerate, but they just seem so grand in our minds). For example, I truly believe that any mom who says their baby who is under the age of 12 months 6 months sleeps through the night, what they really mean is the baby may or may not wake up for a quick feeding at either 12 am or 5 am, but after being used to feeding every 3 hours, technically anything over 6 hours is sleeping through the night.
Moms 30 and over blog differently than twenty-something mothers. And I am in awe (also, perhaps a little irritated) when I see fresh-faced mommies of 23 blogging about their 2 year olds. And I don’t believe their complaints about stretch marks.
When moms ask for advice on their blogs, if their baby is even a day older than Z-Bear’s six months, I refrain from responding. Because the mommy club is all about seniority. Everyone should respect that.
…Well, back to my slow week…although as a mom you never know, it could pick up any second…
