I really don't want this to be a Mommy blog.
Not that I have anything against Mommy blogs. There are some that I enjoy very much. Of course, there are also others that make me want to slit my wrists and start pushing for the sterilization of everyone on the planet. It's how I feel about most styles of blog though, whether they be about celebrity gossip, home decorating, sex, or NASCAR (haven't really seen a lot of those though). No, it's not the genre as a whole that makes me want to eschew being a Mommy blogger, it's just that I never intended this blog to fall into that category. Just because I have a child now (and a really cute one at that, really I feel bad for other babies), and I like to talk about her, I don't see why I have to move to the Mommy blog ghetto.
Maybe it's the name "Mommy blogger." It implies that there is nothing more important in that person's life than their children, and writing about the cute things they did. That they are defined by their children. Look, I love my daughter, and there is definitely nothing more important in my life. However, there are a lot of other things that interest me, and that I want to write about. For instance, did you know that 2009 marks the 25th anniversary of the movie "Goonies?" Yeah, I have been working on a witty piece about that crappy flick and how everyone around me loves it for some time. Or, how about the fact that Tara and I have decided never to go hiking together because it might end with one of us killing and eating the other. And I am not talking about climbing Everest, I'm talking about walking up to a small lake in the mountains. That could be a multi-part post. Oh! Or how about television shows where the main character is a total douchebag, but you still watch because of the supporting cast? "How I Met Your Mother," anyone? That post will be comedy gold!
Meg is definitely more interesting than all of those things.
Oh, and she did the cutest thing in her sleep last night when she yawned and then put her hands over her head like she was a professional wrestler! You should have seen it!
Fuck. I might be a Mommy blogger. At least for the next six months. Can you blame me, though? Just look at this face...It's just not fair to ugly babies. I know. And you can totally tell she wouldn't put up with that "Goonies" claptrap either. Nope, She's going to be a "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" fan, just like her Mom... Maybe I can get a post out of it!
