2 year anniversary

I started blogging two years ago today. I can't believe it's been two years since I started. I didn't know anyone who blogged and I googled blogging and came across and got started that way. I figured it would be a good way for me to keep all the family and far away friends in touch with what all was going on with us. And it would be a nice to have all our memories preserved in one place instead of me writing down things the kids said on all these different papers and traditional journaling just never worked for me. I put a ticker on the page at the end of 2007 and since I did that I've had almost 10,000 views on my page. Crazy! The other exciting thing is that I've had at least 20 other friends join in on the blogger band wagon! Now I've just got to get it together and print my books with for 2007 and 2008! Ha ha!

Here's the first blog I ever posted:

Being a mommy is the most amazingly wonderful job I've ever done. On the other hand it's also the hardest. It's a 24 hour job where your brain never stops thinking about everything that needs to be done. I'm working on stopping to "smell the roses" more and more and I'm finding it so rewarding. I think in my mind I just thought the boys would also be my little toddlers but as Boston gets bigger and more grown up each day, I am beginning to appriciate these times more than I used to. Because raising two toddler boys while your are pregnant is no piece of cake. But I now cherish everyday that I get to play with them. It won't be long before they are in school most of the day and want to play with their friends more than they do me. But for now I'm the coolest person to play with (other than daddy that is.) I can build a train that rivals most others, make a tent out of sheets and read books inside, paint with finger paint, hit a t-ball farther than them, play hide and go seek for hours, and be the biggest monster chasing them. I think my years of theatre training is finally going to some good use. Being able to do several different voices in a story is very exciting to a toddler. "Mommy you are so funny!" And that's the greatest thing. I, the person who I thought was NEVER funny, am the best stand up comedian on earth. And that is the greatest thrill! To have your kids laugh at you is just inspiring. And to hear them say "Mommy I love you" will make the worst day smell like a rose! Having kids of your own is the greatest experience on earth. There truely is nothing like it and God has blessed me with kids that inspire, motivate and love me like none other. (1st blog, originally posted on 1/16/07)
