The First Day of the Blog

Today is just an exercise in blogging. My sons are chasing each other, the Wiggles are wiggling with their pom poms and songs and the cat is terrified. I dropped my tween off at the bus stop and the day should be progressing nicely, but isn't. It's because of the coffee. I slept in, and for some reason, when I don't get up, nobody else gets up. All the alarm clocks in the house, and noone can get their butts out of bed unless I get up first. You see the problem with this, don't you? I would like to sleep in occasionally, but can't, because if I don't greet the morning with 'get up child and I don't care if I interupted your great dream' and a gentle kick to the lumpy blanket that contains my husband, they would sleep til the next day. Today I slept in. Everyone was running late. The alarm clocks rang, but the Mom wasn't up. Mom. HA. I'm just a mom. One of many. The result is that it's 9:40 a.m. and I still haven't had coffee. I'm intrigued by blogging. I don't expect anyone to read it, but still, it's intriguing. Maybe the next post will be more interesting. Right now I need to save the cat, make the coffee, change the kids, break the lease on our apartment, and forage for food.

Dudette, this is brilliant. I can totally feel how bleary you were. Also, it sounds exactly like your spoken "voice," which is a rarer talent than you think.

I was going through some blogs, jumping from one to another after reading the first sentence. Yours, though, I really enjoyed. Though I have no children of my own, I recently broke up with a boyfriend much like a child. So, I can relate. I also agree with sanya, it does have personality, which is rare. I just wanted to let you know that.
