I have given up on trying to stay current with my blog and always writing something meaningful. These days I am lucky to get all the laundry done and keep the car filled with gas - I have zero time for meaningful writing. What I don't want to give up, though is the chronicle of my family.
I started blogging so that my family could stay current on what's happening at our house and have an ongoing dialogue with my adorable kids. That can't end. We can't skype enough or buy enough cross country airplane tickets to stay truly current. And there's a historical quality to writing about young children. My first posts were just a diary of what my kids were up to and how grateful I was for our life. None of that has changed, it's only gotten better.
My kids are bigger, smarter and funnier. We are busier, older and happier. All of those things are inevitable and worth writing about.
