I am a toy gun that shoots jelly.
A train with square wheels.
A doll that cries real tears. (Okay, this one always freaked me out a little bit. It just seemed too deep and serious, and not full of playful Christmas-ness.)
I guess I am a mommy blogger. Because I am a mommy. And a blogger. But I’m having trouble defining myself… finding my voice… understanding why I feel compelled to do this.
I’ve been reading a lot of blogs. And most mommy blogs fall into these categories (some even fit into several!)…
1. Miscarriage/fertility issues
2. Green mommies
3. Great mommy cooks
4. Working mommies with high-powered careers
5. Christian mommies
6. Mommies who have suffered PPD
7. Frugal mommies
I guess I almost fit into a few of these. But not really.
Are there other bloggers out there like me? If so, where?
My name is Sarky T. I’m a mommy of 1 (with another on the way) who is…
…trying to live a balanced life
…while working full-time
…while saving for retirement
…while making time to have fun
…while attempting to live with kindness
…while nurturing my relationships
…while seeking health and balance
…while making positive social change (or at least not screwing things up too badly)
…while raising reasonably well-adjusted kids (okay, I’m really hoping I just don’t mess them up too badly)
…while learning more about myself and the people and world around me.
And perhaps I should add – while trying not to drive myself and those around me crazy with my seemingly unattainable goals.
So… am I Herbie, who wants to be a dentist? Or are there other mommy bloggers out there like me?
Let me know. And watch out for the Bumble.
