Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary!

I skipped my Thursday posting yesterday so that I could bring you greetings today, on my second blog anniversary (blogiversary).  Don't worry, I didn't get you anything either.  I thought briefly about buying you a pair of the same pink footed pajamas that Joel bought be for Christmas a couple of years ago since that was a memory we shared together, but we also shared the time that Graham threw up all over me at the movie theater.  I think it best that we not revisit either of those experiences.

You can get me a sweater or something later.  Or maybe thisJust sayin'.

Now I know that things have been much slower the last few months than they were when I began this site, but my life was a lot different then.  I had a toddler and a baby, was still firmly planted in my twenties, and thought naively that I was busy.  At the time, I also thought I could sustain five weekly postings while feeding, bathing, dressing, educating, counseling, triaging, entertaining, chauffeuring and loving my husband, two animals, Cael, Graham and a partridge in a pear tree.

I also thought I wouldn't gain any more weight.  But that just goes to show you what two years and an inappropriate amount of Nutella can do.

I'm just as committed to keeping the blog going as I was two years ago today, and I'm hoping that you'll stick by me through the site's highs and lows.  In the next two weeks, I'm planning to update its look with a new layout and photos, and I might, just might, finally update those feature tabs that have been "under construction" longer than one of Graham's magnetic tile towers.

While I'm busy with that, please continue to stop by, comment on my posts, and share the blog with your friends.  Because as much as I love to write and to share my family's antics, it is so much more fun to know that someone out there can relate to a life filled with crazy around every corner.

But what can I do?  It is what it is.


  1. Happy Anniversary Mary! I still enjoy hearing about your boys and what you are all up to. Congratulations on making it to two years - that is a lot of commitment and I hope we get to enjoy you writing for years to come. -Donel

  2. Happy Anniversary!
    Congratulations from Srilanka!! And I would like to thank you once again for sharing the story about how you and Joel met! You had mentioned my name, and that's the nicest thing any virtual co-mum has done for me!!! <3
    I love reading your blog, never fails to make me smile and also reminds me that its ok to feel what every mom is feeling but is oh so afraid of saying for fear of being judged.... helps me keep my sanity while praying that my daughter turns out ok......
    take as much time as you want between blog posts, ur loyal readers will always be here for u.......
    Looking forward to the blog makeover....
    PS. The pic of Cael and Graham is so cute!!! Definitely frame worthy! :)

    1. I'm so glad you've kept coming back. While I certainly don't have a huge readership, it's enough that I get excited when I see names and faces repeatedly. That makes me happy! I'm working on a photo shoot for the redesign today...

  3. Happy Anniversary! Love your blog! :)


Leave your own "ism". Cael and Graham double-dog dare you.
