We had a Mom's Night Out the other night with the moms from the new homeschooling group in our area. I enjoyed visiting with some friends I had already met and with some friends I hadn't met yet. The conversations ran from education philosophies to OB/GYNs to the best kids resale shops, you know...the usual subjects when you get a group of Teacher Mommies together. But one topic of conversation came up that surprised me a little... blogs. Not sure why! Seems like everyone is doing it these days.
In this group of 10 women sipping lattes and letting their hair down (because there were no kids to pull on it) 3 of us admitted to having blogs. The other two were brave enough to actually name theirs. I was the only coward. (See...I am a little shy even IRL.) I did let it slip that I had joined the Catholic Mother's Online list only after one of the other mommy bloggers mentioned she had recently signed up.
This lady is a very spunky lady who has tackled such challenges as infertility, a job that requires her husband to travel (I don't know how you do it!), camping with children (again...don't know how you do it!) and a broken washer and dryer... after the camping, no less! Most days she spends her time tackling the three adorable boys God has blessed her with who may not have been made by her, but were definitely made for her!!
She said she was going to hunt me down through the Catholic Mother's list and knowing her the little bit that I do, I am sure she will do it. So now it is just a matter of time until she finds me and the fun of getting to know her better!
