Let's Get Real...

Ok, I know it's been some time since I visited my little corner of Blogland.   I came by last night and read through old posts and remembered things about my kids that I had already forgotten.  I also came to a few conclusions.  I started this blog as a way to vent some of the frustrations that are inherent with attempting to raise (and who am I kidding? just living with) the smallest people in my home.  It has been a venue to document the good, bad, and often slightly ugly happening in our lives, but a place where I can also (eventually) see the humor in most of the daily situations of family life.  

I have also used this space to attempt (not always so well done) to keep connected with friends and family.  I have been a little frustrated at times with the lack of comments and wondering if anyone ever bothers to have a look at the antics of our home.  After strolling through the past few years online last night, I decided I don't care if anyone looks or comments.  This has become (at least for me and hopefully my husband and children) a chronicle of the little and not so little events and memories and precious moments in our lives.  

I decided to recommit to posting more often.  I'm not going to say how often, but I realized the importance of this family journal, even if this blog is just a place to keep it safe for awhile.  Life is busy, crazy busy in our house, but I don't want to miss out on recording and preserving little snippets of my children as they grow.  

With that said, our little family has grown since the last post.  More to come soon!
