Life has been a whole new level of crazy recently. Lots of weddings, long car rides, tears, tantrums and laughter. Hannah can crawl. Each of us has taken turns getting sick. I stopped blogging for a while… Not because I had writer’s block. Far from it. I drafted and fleshed out 8 posts during my 2 month hiatus. BUT I didn’t post any of them because I felt paralyzed! I felt this huge pressure from particular Facebook friends- who I barely know (or don’t talk to in real life)- that my observations on life and mothering were wrong, and that I should be more politically correct with my language.
So, I became a Lurker.
I still read. But, stopped sharing. Then I saw this image on social media:
And I felt empowered as I remembered that this is my blog after all. Why on earth was I letting other people’s criticisms stop me from writing and sharing my perspective and experiences! What the heck.
So, I’m back people! No more hiding in the shadows 🙂 stay tuned!
P.s. Today’s bonus: Here is my husband practicing his Nigerian accent 😂
