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.
