Stop the presses, scrap all your media headlines, have I got a scoop for you….The Harried Mom is finally here!
Gee, I hope someone will come & read……and comment.
Do I have any idea what I’m doing?
Well, somewhat. I like sharing my ideas and notions about being a mom/wife/career woman and hearing from other mommies, daddies and folks with the great tips and advice they may have to offer as well. What I don’t know is all this tech/website/coding stuff – I’m a newbie at all this, so I don’t have a lot of bells & whistles on this blog, but…but hopefully you’ll find some funny stories and maybe sometimes informative information. You can find out more about who I am here.
I want to give a big shout out to my hubs for helping me get this blog going. There were many nights over the past few weeks where I threw my hands up in frustration and he was able to talk me off the ledge and figure things out. He is and has always been my biggest supporter and a great daddy to boot. He also moonlights as my editor – see hubs is a fantastic writer, he knows how to say it, say it concisely and with just the right sense of humor. His comments, edits, ideas and suggestions for my posts are always appreciated!
I’d also like to thank my brother-in-law, yes you read that right, my BIL. He’s a graphic designer and he took one little image and made me The Harried Mom. It’s his handiwork in the header of this blog. You probably have seen his handiwork before (“The Electric Company,” “The Al Franken Show,” “The Chris Rock Show” and “Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn”, among others) and didn’t even know it. If you are ever in need of a redesign or refresher let me know and I’ll put you in touch with him. I can tell you he’d be reasonable 😉
Of course my kidlets, whom all these stories and snippets of life emanate from. They are the two most important things that I’ve ever created in my life. On a daily basis they inspire me, show me how to live with abandon and want to be the best mommy in the world for them. The also know how to get under my skin, push my buttons and have taught me the meaning behind “Calgon, take me away!” But I wouldn’t change the chaos and happiness that comes from my family, not even for a second!
Okay, this now starting to sound like an acceptance speech for some major award or something….really, it’s just a blog launch message…..but I have one more big thank you to say and that’s to YOU – thank you for taking a few minutes out of your busy, crazy, hectic day to visit with me here and share a little slice of life. I hope that you will continue to come over for a visit and that we can talk about things, share ideas and help each other make it through this thing called parenthood!
So please take a look or read around, I’ve posted some of my recent posts from FB that you may have not seen before.
I will be adding a Blog Roll – so if you’re a fan, let me know and I’ll include you on that!
