Thanks Internet Aunties!

A few days ago, Daddy-Mook was carrying me around on his back, so Mom and I had some face to face time.

She loves to tell me about her blog buddies and sometimes will read me things she has written, as well as notes from her friends. Daddy likes to tell me that I will really treasure having this journal to read one day because Mommy has really enjoyed keeping a diary of the journey to have little-ole-me!

So during this chat we were having, she mentioned she thought maybe she shouldn't blog anymore.

Well, the local paparazzi caught my reaction:


I was shocked.

I told myself I wouldn't cry. I knew that mommy would just think I needed to be changed or I was hungry, so I held my composure and put on my serious-let's-get-down-to-business look, and gave her some solid 7 1/2 month-old advice:

Daddy must have heard my threats, because he told Mommy she really needed to think about it and we both agreed she needed to talk to her great blog friends.

If my poop-strike threats alone weren't enough (I'd save up for an explosion at the most inopportune time!) I knew that my Internet Aunties would help her through this conundrum. (Yea, that's right--Im not even walking and I know what conundrum means.)

So mommy got quiet for a little while as we walked. I was getting nervous. What was she going to do? Would my sleep strike be enough to convince her to keep typing? Maybe I was going to have to take more drastic measures....I would promise to eat peas.

But then, I heard her start singing to me--and it was my favorite! Itsy-Bitsy-Spider! Oh boy, this could only mean good things! She gave me a big sloppy kiss and said, "I love writing on my blog, O-man! I promise to ask my friends for their advice...I want to keep sharing how much I love you."


And I know I owe all my Internet Aunties a BIG THANK YOU for loving my mommy, too.

  18. I think I went through doubts about blogging when my babes were about as old as your O-man. I took a little break and came back for obvious reasons now. You need to do what fulfills you. I'm sure you'll find the right answer. Oh, and by the way, my vote for the surprise baby's name is Oliver if it's a boy- I hope you don't object!!!

  20. I'm glad O-Man had such wise words for you. AND that he didn't go on a poop strike. That would end in tears for ALL involved.

    I hope you're comfortable writing here. I can't imagine anyone not being sad to see you go. I know I'm glad you're sticking around.
    *HUGS*

    I always knew you were cute, but now I also know you are one smart cookie!!

  23. For the record, I still love reading about how much you love O-man too.

    He could not get any cuter! His expressions are just amazing.

  24. Wow, O-man, you are wise beyond your years!

  25. O-man, you are right, your internet Aunties can certainly beg your Mommy to stay on board with blogging. We love her wisdom and wit, and she means a lot to us. She just needs to understand that infertility is not the only thing going on, and many of us are so terribly glad that her daily thoughts and feelings have changed, due to you.

    Yes, there are those that will miss the lessening of the infertility talk, but the (your) blog must change to survive... It needs a purpose, a subject that speaks deeply to your Mommy. It is right that it evolves.

    Also, however much we beg, your Mommy has to have the time and inclination to blog. With you around she may just be so caught up in your wonderfulness that days and weeks are a blur of wonder and fun that pass by in a millisecond.

    I hope that your Mommy will continue to blog, but we must give her time to decide how to proceed. You going on a poop strike would simply distract her, so no, it isn't the best plan for meeting your goals.

    Be a good O-man and give her LOTS of wonderful things to "report" about you. That's the best strategy.
