The problem with blogging glimpses into your life is it often includes your family. It’s all the more difficult as they grow from cute and cuddly little kids (who really aren’t aware of this crazy thing mom does) into older, worldly and wiser people who exclaim,
“Oh my gawd! Mom! Please don’t put THAT on your blog!”
Of course they often will turn around and update their Facebook status with that very thing. But it is their thing to share.
So, you learn to respect these boundaries…mostly…well, it is a learning process. Still you try to be respectful. After all, you have your own boundaries of what you will or will not share…and you have come to discover and make those personal boundaries along the way pretty much in the same way that you are learning other family members’ personal boundaries. But every once in a while, you are given permission to blog “this“.
And so you do.
Because, OMG, this is a blog-worthy event in the life of your family circus!
She’s really going to hate me for this someday I am sure. I’ll just blame her mama. After all, she is the one who gave me permission.
Nevertheless, congratulations, Hazel!!! You are becoming such a big girl and growing up much too fast and I love you too much!
