Just a bunch of words.

I don't have much to say, but feel like I should blog. I just always have this feeling that I'm not interesting. That my life isn't interesting and worth typing out on a public blog for other real people to read. I think the only people truly interested in what I put out here are (is? are? ahhh, whatever) my parents. So I have a hard time thinkin' up things to blog about. Because you don't really want to hear about how we had to leave the children's museum early today because it was so.stinking.crowded and I was panicked that I would lose track of one of my children. Or about how I want to highlight my hair and bought a box of DIY stuff but am nervous to use it. Or about how I can't find a good solution for cleaning my floors. But those are the most interesting things in my life. So I have to dig deep for blog fodder.

I suppose I could talk about my neighbor girl, the 11-year-old I mentioned in my last post or last week or something like that. She is such a sweetheart. And I'm growing to love her like one of my own children. She was with us all day today because she was out of school for MLK day. I just have the best time with her and I half-joked with her that I wish she could hang out with us all day, everyday. She's great with the boys (and they adore her) and we seem to have the same kind of sense of humor. Her mom is thinking about moving at the end of the school year and I begin to get a sick, panicky feeling when I think about that possibility. Being with her makes me ache so badly for a daughter of my own and the thought of her not being around on a daily basis anymore makes it worse.

On a lighter note, I feel the need to mention that Marc-Adam climbed out of his crib last week. Without hurting himself. At some point in the process of getting out he had to have fallen some distance. But I had no idea he was out until I heard him banging on the door. Silly kid. He drives me batty, and yet, I just can't seem to get enough of him.

So, does anyone else feel like they have nothing interesting to say, but they just blog anyway?

All the time!

I would have done your hair for you the other night if you'd mentioned it.

I still can't believe M-A is so coordinated at so young. You'll have to channel that and get him in some kind of sports early. :)

I feel like most of my blogging is when I don't have anything good to say. I still feel like blogging most days though. Although lately I've felt like there's no point to it...just like you said. Oh well. I notice that I go in cycles with blogging anyway.

My son just climbed out of his crib for the first time a few weeks ago. He hasn't done it since. Whew. Good luck with Marc-Adam.

those are the days i find myself either doing a meme or posting an interesting photo on Wordless Wednesday. i think it's an actual carnival, but don't know where so I just use it in my titles! :)

I'm with you ladies. All the time. Perhaps my readers think the same thing. Dang, she posted again???

I think hair coloring and stressful trips to crowded museums are interesting.

I am terrified of a little one in our house. We're at least going to cover the concrete floor in the "guest room" with bamboo because I can foresee a crib-diving incident and knowing us, it would involve injury. I'm impressed that he was able to hurl himself out so neatly. :)
