Hello...................


My husband asked me tonight "what is it about blogging that you like?''
(you can add the tone)
Hmmmmm ......I think of blogging as the quick phone call I would love to make and check in to see how everyone is doing.....or.....the fun party I meet a new person that I find interesting and make a connection . I was on the phone today with a friend and I felt horrible giving only 80% of my ear because my little one was looking for something to climb on, jump in, put her finger through or lick..............so blogging is MY time to stay connected.



Oh, I am a new Auntie today.........my sis had her little girl this morning........pictures to come.

YAY!!! I can't wait to see your new sweet niece!! YAY!!!! Congrats!!!

I am with you 100%, I would rather be able to leave my computer for a few minutes to kiss a knee and get a snack then tell the person on the other line that I will call them back (because I ALWAYS forget!!)

Did he understand??? Congratulations Auntie! By the way...you are all welcome for dinner anytime! There is always room for a few more! Barbara is coming...we are so glad she will not be alone for the day! She and I are going out shopping tomorrow...I should be in bed...can't stop checking in on people! LOL

Love you!

I was just telling my mom today that she is the only person I call on the phone. It is just way too hard and Aaron just goes crazy. I feel blessed to have an outlet, to be able to share all my crazy things and to be able to share in others happenings as well. Men just don't ever understand!

Congrats on the new addition!

I hope he sees the blogging as not just something for you, :-) but also a way for his EXTENDED FAMILY to know what is happening for that beautiful grandchild/niece/cousin you have living there at your house.

Really, with some spin, you could argue it's all for him.... ;-) ha ha!

Congratulations on your own new little niece!

Oh Dana, I am laughing over the fact that little Sarah wants to not only climb on everything...but "lick" it too. Still laughing.

So, great post.

I blog because I like to keep my kids humble. Just joking. I blog for a lot of the same reasons you do...

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and the best to your sis and that new baby. YAY. Finally.

Tink said...

Too cute about Sarah wanting to "lick". Uh, did your husband get it after you explained it like that? Congrats to your sis and you! Can't wait to see the pics.

Congrats on the new baby in the family!
I agree - blogging is that extra % of staying in touch! Great description.

Congrats Auntie! I cant wait to see pictures of the cousin tutu monkey! :)

And here here on the blogging! Anytime I get on the phone my kids start yelling, but when I'm on the computer they continue on with what they are doing. :)

So true, you couldn't have said it any better :)

Congrats on being a new aunt!!

Kelly said...

Congratulations Auntie Dana! I think you described the blogging experience for many of us perfectly. I love staying in touch with you and Sarah this way.

you have a great blog. i am glad that i stumbled upon it. i agree with everything you said. if he asks i might just refer him to you. thanks. read you again. ♥

in time out said...

ps. i had to do it. i referred my husband tonight to your blog. we went through about 30 before I found you again, but it was worth it.

i hope it is okay that i have referred to you in a post tonight. it was just too funny.

They just don't get it do they. You need to compare it to something that he really loves that you just 'don't get'.

Congrats auntie.
