This is most certainly true.

I am no writer, folks.

I have no skill at turning a catchy phrase or two. I've tried to keep journals. I have about 5 laying around the house filled to, at most, page 10.

I skipped 8th and 9th grade entirely (you did not read that wrong, but it's a long story) and I think that's when they taught about punctuation and predicates and such - missed it.

My family has the "can not spell" gene pretty strong. It's a dominate gene, it is! (seriously, it's not just me, Scrabble is a riot when we try to play!)

I do have some smarts. Have documents to prove it, have my BA, graduated from college - magna cum laude - but when it comes to writing I am, well, just not gifted. I am not a mother, who is a writer, blogger.


I can recognize why good writing is important. I do appreciate those writer-mothers out there that can relay their daily lives in humorous, witty, insightful manner. I often find myself wishing I could.

I blog because I wanted connection to other mothers. I blog because I don't keep memory books for my kids - this is it. And, like I said, I don't keep journals - this is it.

But there is no creative-writer-struggling-to-break-out-of-wife-and-mother-mode here.

I give honors to those creative writer ones out there that I am enjoying daily! I am in full envy mode today. BooMama had me in stiches today!

So what do I have to offer to this blogging world? Hmmmm . . .
Ah-ha! ( light bulb)

I have cute pictures of darling kids!

Rebekah said...

Yes, you do have cute pictures...and I believe a lot more to offer besides just the pictures!

For some reason I see a Harley in the future???

Yes, cute pictures go a long way--but I have to say, I think you're plenty witty and write well enough to keep us all coming back! And if you're writing for contact with other moms, that's all that matters right? ; )

Oh, those are cute kids!!! Yeah, that's I have to offer on my blog too. Pics of cute kids. I am always wishing that I was funnier or whittier. But, it has yet to come. You get what you get. But I think you're great!

Cute picture of darling kids is THE perfect reason to blog!! :-) Trying to live up to another persons writing skills cause they may get more comments, however; is not.

I spend most of my time writing and just guessing that I've spelled it right and put the proper puncuation in at the proper place. Oh well if it's not perfect...
