Seriously, though, I did resist a little, not wanting to do everything everyone else was doing, but then I realized I was writing my own blog in my head every time I read the others. The only problem was that my mind-blog would go away just as quickly as it came (I have a bad memory - can't remember a movie I saw two years ago bad). Then, a couple weeks ago, I was reading Kelly's blog and it hit me like a ton of bricks the reason why I felt a pulling inside to blog. Here's what she wrote that caused my mini-epiphany (if any epiphany can be called mini).
It was one of those experiences where you just wonder how and why this event was necessary for my further growth and progression as a human being. How is it possible that this much of my life involves unpleasant human biproducts? And why in the world am I writing about it? I'm writing about it so that someday, when my girls are moms and they have a day with an abundance of yuck and cleaning products they can pull out a leather bound volume of Mom's Blog (Ha!) and know that it happens to everyone.
Oh, and congratulations Kelly on being the final straw the broke me down!
The last reason I have decided to start blogging is FAMILY. I have siblings who live in Utah and Iowa and it's hard to keep tabs on them and I'm sure they feel the same. So here's my valiant step forward in the communication department (since I'm not much good on the phone calling thing).
Nate also has an amazing family that lives far away and whom we rarely see -- from Denver to South Carolina to Paris, France. I love Gran who lives in South Carolina and want her to be able to keep up on our family. Nate also has two brothers who live in Denver and Paris and who have the cutest kids ever and I rarely get to see them! So, I'm hoping to convince my sisters-in-law to start something similar so that I can get to know my nieces and nephews better and keep up on their lives and feel like I know them a little better next time I see them.
