Is there really a difference anyway? If there is, I think blogging for almost five years and then becoming a mom makes me the latter. I blog about my life. And yes, much of my content has been about my current life as a stay at home mom since becoming a mom about 15 months ago, but I still don't consider myself a Mommy Blogger. Maybe I'm a Mommy Blogger in transition? I mean, I don't have plans to ever really return to work until Zack and his future siblings are all at least in preschool part-time. And even then, I hoping to work @ home on my own time. So my life will increasingly become all about my kids, I guess. I use to write more about films and books I've experienced, but my kid has replaced those "experiences" since he showed up. Mom. Blogger. If I'm both, I'm both. I guess the order of titles doesn't really make a difference.
Slowly, I'm carving out more time for myself now that he's a little more independent and playing and "reading" by himself (like he's doing right now, which is why I'm able to write a bit this morning). However, I'm using most of that time to like, bathe, and drink...you know, the stuff I can't do while with my baby in tow. It seems like finding time shouldn't be so hard, you know? Since I'm at home with Zack, I work really hard to keep him busy and out in nature and the community experiencing life. If I stayed inside with him all the time, his life wouldn't be much more different from than if he were in daycare, I think. So my days are all about him. I've been told that I do a lot, and maybe too much with him sometimes, but what's the point of being a SAHM if I'm not giving him as much of myself --as many experiences as I can? Over the past few months, I've been able to toy with reading again, and am considering catching late shows at the movies every once in a while Billy's on baby duty or after Zack is asleep (Star Trek is out and it's killing me that I haven't seen it yet). I'm accepting all invitations to attend events sans baby as well. I'm rambling. And, at the moment, my son seems to find scratching my legs to see the white marks he leaves behind amusing. So I'm logging off to see if I can interest him in another activity.
