I want to thank you all for your comments last week. You have no idea how much it helped me to read your words and know that I am not alone. I wanted to email you each to say thank you, but then so many of you came out to write to me. I promise I will not be posting daily on How Do You Solve a Problem Like Zachary, because there’s no downer like consistent whining. Rest assured, however, that while I am cheerfully babbling on about the sweetness that is 16 months and the cuteness that is three-and-a-half, I am daily facing the Den of Despair that is raising a highly sensitive five-year-old. I’ll just spare you the details.
Speaking of babbling, go over and check out the list of blogs nominated for best Mommy Blog. Some of you are there. Do feel free, if you actually do like my blog, to tell them about it. You have to scroll WAY down to find Wheels on the Bus, or you can just use the “search” function. Please click “like” for all the blogs you enjoy. Since we don’t get paid out here on the internet, it’s the best way to let other bloggers know you like what they are doing. Seriously – go do it. If you are reading a blog on a regular basis, consider the 27 seconds it takes a way to say “thank you.”
And, speaking of the cuteness that is three-and-a-half, just after baking a batch of muffins and while listening to Pete Seeger, Benjamin decided to slam dunk my laptop onto the kitchen floor. Go ahead, breathe into a brown paper bag until you stop hyperventilating – I certainly had to.
Can you breathe again? So, the files are all OK, but the screen is bent. I am sending her off to the store for a little straightening out, so I may not have access for a few days, which sucks donkey breath because I have a deadline I am trying to meet. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know in case you email me to tell me that the sky is falling and I don’t reply. I have a few posts in the queue, so you most likely won’t even notice I’m gone.
Speaking of the sky falling, Issa could use some support right about now. Please drop by her site.
That is all. Go – back up your computer right now. Because a three-and-a-half year old may be right around the corner.
