After having my daughter 2 years, 8 months and 12 days ago my blogging world forever changed. The days of over analytic and well thought out viewpoints were now seemingly faint memories of my past. It was a paradigm shift. All I had to talk about was her -- my child. And that was it.
I quickly found myself cramming in a half-assed written 'blurb' about all things infant. Creative uses for a nasal aspirator, how to effectively dispense acid-reflux medicine, why sleepers that snap and don't zip are the devil. I use to pride myself on my ability to discover, express and put into thought ideas and topics of mass interest! All of a sudden all I could muster up was some creative tactics on how to "stack" your coupons to save on the endless supply of diapers you need to keep up with the endless amount of shitting that was taking place. My life as an interesting, thought provoking adult was officially over.
Hence, the birth of Mommy Modern. The finish line of one race is just the beginning of another. Although this race has been filled with many hurtles, speed bumps and caution tape -- it has been a rewarding one. My life may not be relate-able to all, but if nothing less it has become quite comical. I'm proud to be able to share my moments of chaos, dysfunction and utter humiliation with all of you, even if my daughter will hate me when she's an adult. Her life will forever be chronicled - and sorry to say little man, yours likely will now be too.
One day hopefully she will look back on this and understand. If not, oh well -- I'm still changing your shitty diapers and you should be potty trained. FML.
