Here’s something I don’t think I’ve really mentioned to anyone: I’m a little bit addicted to mommy blogs.
Awesome, yes? I think so. 🙂
Don’t you just want to squish her? I do! Sadly, Maddie passed away in April – she was a preemie and had been dealing with lots of health problems – and Heather has been writing about this experience too. It’s heartbreaking and beautiful all at once.
While cruising the archives of that blog, I found moosh in indy. Talk about adorable kids! Check out this one, affectionately referred to as The Moosh:
So, you may ask, what is the draw? Why read blogs about the lives of people I don’t know and will probably never meet? Well I’ll tell you. First of all, I think I like mommy blogs specifically because pretty much my number-one goal is to be a mommy myself. I’ve got the whole maternal instincts thing going on, I love little kids, I suffer from raging baby envy. I think that’s why mommy blogs in particular appeal to me the way they do. But beyond that, when you read these blogs, you come to feel like you do know them. Maybe you see similarities to yourself, or to someone you know. So then their story isn’t just theirs, it becomes universal. It could be anyone’s story. You find something you can relate to, or see that someone else has gone through something you may have gone through. I think it’s safe to assume that everyone who might read this knows about the relationships that can be formed across the miles via the Wonderful Interwebz, so that’s why I like blogs.
Plus all these bloggers are awesomely talented writers and really really freakin’ funny. They’re just fun to read.
And now you know what I do at work! 😉
