My problem, at the moment, is that I don’t think I’m 100% sure what this blog is going to be about.
- It’s partly to keep some sort of record of my son (The Wee Man / TWM) and his development and progress – you think you’ll remember stuff in the future, but already I look back at photos of his first few weeks and realise there’s little things he did that I’ve forgotten about. We have recently started weaning and it’s proving challenging – getting my boob out was quick and easy. BLW (baby led weaning) requires a bit more thought and preparation! I would like to be able to look back at successes and mistakes in the future.
- It’s also a challenge to myself, to ensure that I’m making my life count. I’ve been really challenged by this blog – I recognise so much of me (and my husband) in the ‘before’ descriptions and it’s making me really think. How often do I challenge myself, take myself out of my comfort zone? I suspect the answer will shame me, and so I haven’t examined the issue too closely. I think I should, though.
- I would also like a place to discuss – or monologue, I suppose? – on issues that are important to me. I have strong feelings on some subjects, but can’t always articulate them. It might be helpful for me to crystallise my thoughts here and receive useful comments / discussions.
- Lastly, a way for others to keep up with what we’re doing. We have friends and family who live far from us, and it’s easy to forget snippets of news if you’re not speaking often.
I won’t over-think it. I should get into the habit of just posting when I have something in my head.
For now – here’s my boys.
