Confessions from a first-time blogger

Okay - so I confess. I've never blogged before. I've never before had the time to sit down uninterupted at the computer to write about the goings on in my life. A few changes in the past few months have made this (somewhat) possible, but do forgive me if I don't write every day. My boys are both sleeping (Aleleuia!) and I've cleaned the kitchen, done some laundry and paid some bills. And now - I'm going to blog by golly.

A few things about me:
  • I just celebrated my 3 year anniversary with my husband.
  • We have 2 beautiful boys - ages 14 months and 3 months.
  • We have a cat - Baxter - also a male.
  • This means I'm the only estrogen in a house full of testosterone...(I actually just finished the book House of Testosterone - a must read for moms of all boys)
So how do I now have the time to create a blog? Well, after our first son Ethan was born, I began working part-time so that I could maximize my time with him. When Ethan was 3 months old, I got pregnant again (I can't say it was an accident, but it was definitely a surprise). I was planning on going back to work part-time after our second son Aiden was born, however God had different plans for us. Aiden came 5.5 weeks early and was born with Apert Syndrome - a fluke genetic disorder that my husband and I had no indication of during my pregnancy. We learned very quickly how much time and care Aiden would require and felt it best for me to take that on full-time. I always wanted to be a stay-at-home-mom, but never could have imagined it would be less of a choice and more of a necessity. Nevertheless, I embrace my new role and after 3 months can finally say that I've gotten adjusted.

So in between changing diapers (two separate bottoms mind you), changing my shirt after being spit-up on...again, consoling a toddler who just bumped his head on the coffee table and attempting to pee every now and then, I'm going to take on this new-age blogging thing. If I can no longer have adult conversations outside of the house all day, then clearing my head to a computer screen will have to suffice.

Take it easy on me - I'm new at this.
