Motherhood really is ending (though Youngest still reminds me that he will be home for two, yes, two more years and thus it is not ending right this minute).
As you can see, I have not been here since, oh, this IS embarrassing, too many months to actually count.
I loved doing this blog. Why did I stop?
Well, it occurred to me today that, though I didn't know it, I was feeling constrained by the conventional wisdom that one's blog needs to be a "niche" of some sort. I love being a mother and sometimes I want to blog about it but I DO have other things going on in my life (shocking, I know, but true) and I felt that every post here had to be about the mothering and nothing but the mothering and so.....
But I'm back long enough to tell you (Is anybody here...here...here....here...here.....?) that, though I have a new post in mind about watching my children sleep, I am no longer interested in being a niche.
