Let's try this again...

Ok, so I've become inspired to start my own blog.  I've been following a few blogs for some time now and have really enjoyed getting to know about these individuals and their lives.  I've often wished I had a larger network of peeps who could provide ears to listen to my raves, shoulders to cry on, outpourings of advice when my brain/heart/soul fails to guide me while on my way. Unfortunately, the reality is that it is hard getting to meet new people, especially as an adult who is trapped in my house most of the day with 2 kids.  

While it isn't easy to chat it up with total strangers at the park while my 3-year-old whines to push him higher, HIGHER on the swings, I suppose I could spend a few moments a day to chat it up with strangers online.  Seems like it works for a lot of other people (ok, I'm actually a little envious of the friendships people are striking up via their blogs).  Soooooo...here I am and I am all yours!  

Sure, I have a lot of things to share (like my 3-year-olds perceptions of the differences between penises and baginas), but I'm also eager to hear about you too.  I'll bet that we have a lot of the same experiences to share.  No doubt most moms and dads out there have run the gammet of wonderful, embarrassing, awful, icky situations with their kids.  At least we have that in common! And for those of you without kids, I remember those days (sometimes fondly) and need to be reminded that there is a world out there that doesn't involve crayons, diapers, snot, baby food, bedtime stories and bad attitudes (the 3-year-old version)!

Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  Yesterday I wrote a much more inspired and heartfelt post, which was to be my introduction into the world of blogging.  But of course, I didn't save it and it was lost somewhere in cyberspace.  Figures...

So, my time is up.  Kid #1 is up from his nap and my "me-time" is over.  More tomorrow perhaps...
