It's My Day!

My SITS day! I used to see this button all over the place and think it was some secret society that I had to be invited to join. Instead, it's a very welcoming and supportive group of ladies!


Welcome, welcome!


I would have cleaned up for you, but I hate housework.  Besides, I have three boys ages 5 and under- they just tear through and mess things up anyway, so why bother? No, we're not going to keep trying for a girl. Three kids is a good size for our family, regardless of gender.


Step over any messes you see and c'mon in. I'm Shell, a former teacher turned stay-at-home mom who is a beach girl at heart. Thanks for stopping by to visit Things I Can't Say.


If this is the Things I Can't Say, is this blog just blank? you might be wondering.


It's more The Things I Can't Say outloud.


The Things I Can't Say to someone I just met at a playdate for my boys.


The Things I Can't Say or it would mortify mil and my mom. And possibly Hubs. And maybe my friends.


 But, it's all got to come out somehow- and that's what this blog is for.


I started blogging as a way to keep track of all my boys' milestones and cute stories. But, as soon as I told one funny little story that involved my boys' fascination with a certain body part and how they thought it resembled a magic growing beanstalk, that was enough for my family. And I realized that maybe I had more to say than just the cute little stories. So, I started this blog- anonymously.


I like not having to censor myself. You always get my honest opinions on parenting, marriage, friendship, and whatever else happens to pop into my head.  The good, the bad, the ugly- but it's always genuine me.


So, to show you around a little bit- other than checking out my favs, where you will find mama anger, a post about who I used to be, a challenge about sex, and a really embarrassing/hilarious video of Hubs and Bil dancing:


I have a tendency to struggle as I try to make mom friends. If you want to know what  a "motherbitch" is and how to avoid being one, you can check out this post.


Hubs and I have been married for seven years now, but I have to tell you that I think romance is overrated.


Though I do have a romantic side and fully believe that people come into our lives for a reason, even if it's just for a day.  This post is part of the meme I started about two months ago: Pour Your Heart Out, which you can participate in on Wednesdays- anything that you consider pouring your heart out. It gives you an excuse to talk about anything that is weighing on you or an issue that is important to you.


And, in case you are wondering what life is like in a house with all boys, you can read about brotherly "love" here.


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my blog!

I agree with you -- love is a decision. Isn't it funny the way our view of romance changes after we get married? We need more novels about the real romance in marriage -- the holding-your-hair-back, working-your-a**-off romance.

Happy SITS day!

Happy sits day to you! This is such a great idea, my blog started of with nobody knowing that I blogged in 'real life' but I decided not long after to tell everyone gradually.

I do sometimes wish it was anonymous though - maybe I'll start another one under an alter ego to get that stuff out of my head!

Have a lovely day,

Yay, Shell!!! I'm so glad you're the FB today.

Thanks for following me. After you did, I started looking around your site. OMG, you're making me wish I'd done my blog anonymously! The post "Everybody's doing it: let's talk about sex," is fabulous! I wanted to comment but thought my hubby might not appreciate comments about "it" in a public forum, no matter how flattering. :)

I'm grabbing your button. Feel free to grab mine if you like--I just figured out how to make the damn thing yesterday!

Anyway, happy SITS day! This is the first time it's been a blogger I've kind of known, and I'm so happy for you!

Happy SITS Day! My mom lives down on the Carolina Coast (Swansboro/Emerald Isle area) - I love it there, and we visit for 6-8 weeks every summer. I love the shovel story, and the "motherbitch" one is excellent as well - I have a few of those people at my daughter's school. You have a follower out of me!

Hi Shell, nice to meet you! Congrats on your SITS day! I adore your blog lay-out; it's possibly the best one I've seen, since I'm also such a beach girl. I love all of the flip-flops!

You've won over another follower. :-)

Congrats on being today's FB! I love your blog idea, I think all of us have things we need to get out that would shock those who know us well. I also have 3 small boys 4 & under, and I think it's great how fantastically they play together. My oldest two are boy & girl, and they fought like crazy when they were little.
Off to check out your blog now!

Congratulations on being featured today. Most of us wish we were anonymous so we could post our honest opinions without fear of retribution from our MILS and moms and other family and friends. You go girl. Now, I'm off to lurk around your blog for a while and if only for a short time, experience the thrill of someone who is being completely honest. Cause let's face it, no one in my life knows how to do that.

Shell, I truly believe there is a Supernatural force that brought you and I to SITS, you being selected today and me reading Motherbitch. 2009 put me and my family thru the wringer with a gaggle of Motherbitches, I call them the "momfia". I have volumes to share.
Congrats to you - great blog!!!!
