Thoughts of the day - getting back into writing

It's been awhile since I've written here... actually it's been awhile since I've written anywhere! Being at home with a new baby and having a daughter about to start school soon has kept me plenty busy. However, I still like to write and want to write so I figured it was time to just start!

SOOOO This is a start :) Here are some thoughts from today...

  1. Mommy bloggers can be annoying. I saw an article going around today about how you better not DARE call your daughter "princess" or else you are raising a spoiled brat. There have been so many similar mommy blogs going around lately saying what you should and should not do that I'm just soooo over it. There is only one thing anyone should tell anyone to do - and that is "don't tell people what to do!" BTW my daughter is my princess and I will not let her become a spoiled brat :)

  2. The only thing predictable about babies is that they are unpredictable! I remember with my first daughter that I was in a daze the first few months just trying to keep up. Luckily the new baby already sleeps better at night, but she is still plenty unpredictable. One day she'll nap great, the next day she won't nap at all. One day she'll eat a ton, the next day nearly nothing. It's definitely just a phase we have to get through and luckily the stress is getting less every day.

  3. Schools need better websites. It's 2015 and here I am filling out dozens of forms by hand for my daughter's first day of preschool. Dozens! As a web designer, I'd love to be able to help them out (if only I had the time) and design some online forms and webpages for them to better manage this. At least the school does have an online parent website that is protected and has a lot of good info we need, but I'm tired of filling out forms and she hasn't even started yet!

Well looks like my thoughts for the day sound like a lot of complaints :) Really though, that's just what I'm dealing with today. Tomorrow I'll try to focus on the positive a bit more. Hope to see lots of you around persona paper - when I have more time to read :)

Thanks for reading!

As a mother of two small children, I'm sure your free time is limited. I'm glad that when I was a young mother there weren't Mommy Blogs to tell me or insinuate what I was doing right or wrong. A new mother -- for that matter, all mothers -- needs reassurance, facts, and positive feedback, not a bunch of opinions and "ought-tos."

Schools probably need to accommodate parents who don't have internet access or are not tech-savvy, but you'd think they could do it both ways. It's probably a funding issue.

I am sure you are busy, once that paperwork is done then there will be field trips and such to sign for so get used to writing a lot.

I totally agree! I do refer to the internet for ideas and tips on babies and kids, but I'm looking for positive advice not "don't do that! don't say this!" Thanks for reading :)

Yeah I know it probably is just expensive... but hey I'm paying for this school emoticon :grin: A lot of times I look at things and can't believe how so much stuff is still done by hand in 2015. But hey - that's why I have a job! I work at a large company where many things are still done by hand and I have to make them one by one into websites and online forms. So I shouldn't complain :)

I'm looking forward to the field trips actually, because she's only in preschool so I get to go too :)
