Blah, Blah, Blog

Yesterday I had an email conversation with my Aunt Barbara. She asked if I minded that she read my blog, since it sort of felt like "reading my personal diary." I guess this is true to some extent with two main differences:

  1. I am too lazy to actually write in a diary on a daily basis
  2. Believe it or not, I actually do censor what I write in the blog
I started this blog in hopes of finding other women in similar situations that I could share stories and experiences with and learn from. I have been really pleasantly surprised to see how many of us are in the same boat and how supportive "working moms" are of one another. When my mother and Aunt became parents, there was much more of a stigma attached with moms working outside the home. While there is still the guilt and debate over whether leaving our kids in someone else's care will scar them for life, we have to admit it is much more accepted.

An added bonus of this blog is that my family can now keep up with LP's development on a much more personal level than third-hand information. And, hopefully it is helping them see me an aspect of me that they didn't know existed.

I love reading your blog! I find it comforting to find other working moms out there who juggle the same life as I do...(and perhaps do a better job of it!)

Amy,
Is your email address anywhere on the site?
I have an offline question for you.
