The Need for Two

Yes, I have two blogs.

One that is my family blog, where I post pics of our daily going-ons(goings-on? goings-ons? Really, I minored in English/Language Arts) and any cute little stories about the kids.

It is my attempt to keep a record of the little things that I know I would forget. And it also allows family who live far away to be able to see my boys more frequently than I would remember to email them pics.

Plus, they can look whenever they want. So, I'm not annoying them by always sending pics...or annoying them by not sending pics enough.

But, then, one day, I posted this little story about my oldest(3 years old at the time):

I can't believe I'm actually going to post this. But, I almost fell over laughing when I heard this, so I have to record it.

Monkey was awake, lying in his bed. I went in and was talking to him for a little bit, when this gem came out. "My peepee is growing."

I managed to keep a straight face and not comment, but he wasn't done.

"When you play with peepees, they grow."

Still not commenting, still a straight face.


"Like a beanstalk! You know how beanstalks grow and grow?"

Yup, almost fell off the edge of his bed, I was laughing so hard.

Well, my family was appalled. My mil especially. My mil, who can't even say the word "poop" when talking about a dirty diaper; instead, she has to whisper "b.m."

And, forget about actually being able to post my thoughts on anything.

It seems to give my relatives ammunition to criticise every. single. thing. I do.

So, this second blog became my outlet.

Where I don't have to censor myself.

It's very therapeutic for me.

And I just love interacting with other bloggers, so thanks for reading!

Yep, my bff and I started another blog when we realized that we needed a place to, um, vent about our MILs and mothers w/o them actually knowing about it. The blogworld is great for that!
