new blogger rules

I remember back when I started my blog...I was so hell bent on posting two posts per day.  Some days were easier to post than others...and I'm not sure why I put those kinds of expectations on myself and this little blog.  So after about a year, I changed my rules and decided to blog only once daily.  Which I did (almost) until recently.

Now...there are a few other things I'd like to do/have to do 'round here other than blog.  Mostly, run around after my Clara.  About a month ago, I decided to take a chill pill with this blog.  It's not at the top of my priority list...I have a lot of living that I do instead. and loving....and studying (because I literally have to study all of the days of my life.  Great.)

The blog isn't the only thing to take a back burner.  The whole computer in general...AND  my cell phone.  When I walk in my front door...I don't talk on the phone...I don't check my email.  Those are my precious few hours with Clara.  And we play.  Read books.  She crawls over to me and climbs into my lap and smiles at me.  She touches my cheeks, and makes me smile.  She sucks her thumb while I cradle her in my arms.  We sing.  She giggles.  We build things.  We play with Daddy.  I feed her dinner.  Bath time.  More play.  Read books.  Bedtime.

Then she goes to bed...and I freaking collapse. 

Not a lot of time for email...or phone calls to far away friends...or blogging...or Facebook.  Someday I will have time for those when Clara doesn't want to play in my lap anymore...and those days are a whole lot sooner than I am prepared for. 


  1. I don't blame you, enjoy any time you can spend with your baby girl!

  2. Love the top photo, Clara looks so happy!

  3. 2 posts a day, are you serious?! I have to give myself a break when I have a tough week with school and all I want to do is be in the moment. I love your's refreshing, and I can't wait to be in your shoes.

  4. yup...i havent posted in about a month...(I wish it was because of a sweet baby) but nope...I've been working like a crazy person and just haven't had time to do much else.

  5. posting? what posting? and all I do instead of blogging (besides work non-stop) is go to the gym and spend time with my husband. spend time with your baby!

  7. Sounds like your priorities are exactly where they should be. Blogging can wait. Babies? Not so much.

    Enjoy every minute.
