My Real Life Blog

So my closest friend out here was visiting me the other day. It just so happens she is the mother of both Haven and Marlie's best friends. She now lives an hour away, so we only get together once every month or two for a play date. She doesn't like to email and I don't like to talk on the phone, so that's really our only chance to catch up on each other's lives.

During this most recent get-together I mentioned something about my blog and she replied, "I don't need to read your blog because I know you in real life. Besides, I know what it's like to be a stay-at-home-mom. I don't need to read about it."

Hey... I blog about things OTHER than being a stay-at-home-mom. I blog about... Twilight and Buffy and Harry Potter and bunnies...and Twilight. Never mind. She is probably better off not reading it.

This is the same friend who won't read Twilight and said Robert Pattinson is funny looking.

But someone better tell Marshall to stop reading my blog, because he knows me in real life and STILL reads my blog.

As a little treat for all my readers who visit my blog because you like to read about what it's like to be a stay-at-home-mom... I leave you with a video Marshall shot and edited from our time at the Court House, waiting for Marlie's re-adoption. Give us a camera that takes video and we can make a prison yard-like balcony look fun.




*By the way, in case you missed it, my prom date saw yesterday's post on my Facebook page and had a little something to say about the comments left. I updated the post if you want to see...

    My best friend lives 10 hours away, so the blog is how she keeps up with us all-I am trying to get her to do one, but she doesn't think she can...

  4. Wait a second... I'm a SAHM... You're a "real life" friend of mine... Sweet! One less thing to add in my Google Reader!! ;)

    She doesn't know what she's missing. But since she doesn't read Twilight I can't say I'm surprised. Why are you even friends with her? ;)

  6. For some reason I can't get ppl that "know" me to read my blog either! But thankfully now I have so many ppl that know me better because they do read it!!! She's crazy cause there is nothing like reading the words on a blog to really know how crazy a person is....jk!

  12. Today's post is worth reading (for those who do and don't know you IRL) for the sound of Seamus's giggle alone.

    No need to fire her. People do blogs or they DON'T do blogs. I've totally discovered that it's not personal. ;-)

  13. I just found your blog from SITS and wanted to stop by and say hi! You have an adorable family! :)

  14. Found you from a comment you left to bee or not to bee (today's SITS featured blog).

    I read the word TWILIGHT and immediately "ran" to see everything you had to say about Twilight lol. I LOVE your pic in your sidebar with you and edward lol.

    I'm off to find more Twilight tidbits ;)

  15. Yeah... My friends IRL don't get it either. Except the two who have blogs.

    Fun with garbage cans...?

  16. Love the laughs and giggles in the video.

    Don't you just love supportive friends like that. It's all about them and they seem to know everything.
    I have friends and family who don't bother to look at my blog either. It's frustrating.

  17. very cute video. I'd read your blog if we were friends, AND I'd read that book, what was it called again?

  18. I am not sure what I liked more ~ the funky beat or the cute kids running around hiding???

    What are those tunes?

    It's too bad your friend is missing out on all the laughter you bring us. :)

  21. Well, my dad told me my blog was whiney. Me whine? Geesh. I've been at home with the kids for over 15 years now. I've heard it all. I love reading your blog, and NOT just because of Twilight. I cannot think of what to say about your friend...no Twilight, doesn't like mom blogs-- I'm aghast.

  22. That video is adorable! And the song is great, what is it? My bestest friend in the whole world doesn't read my blog. Her complaint, I kid you not, there weren't enough pictures of her. She's not bad, really, but it does hurt me a little that she won't read it.

  23. I didn't even KNOW I was learning about being a stay at home mom by reading your blog! Wow! You must be sneaking that stuff in there subliminally...

  24. The kids are so cute!!!!! I love to hear kids laugh!!!!!!!!! :)

    I don't know about your friend not reading your blog?!
