Is it just me or is anyone else scared of their real world finding their blog? Scared of looking a bit stupid. Just typing that makes me feel like I’m about six.
I need to take a leaf out of my eldest’s book; he is not phased at all about anyone reading his writing, seeing his pictures, listening to him speak. Did we all start off like this? I don’t remember being like him ever. My earliest feelings are ones of being rubbish at show and tell, not wanting to take stuff in for the “blue table” and eating my lunch behind my lunch box lid (???).
But the part of me that says “sod it” has grown bigger. Maybe it’s a growing older thing. I want to blog because I enjoy writing. I want to blog about parenting because it is what I am living. I want to blog because I feel like reflecting on stuff makes me a more patient mum. I want to blog because it saves my memories. I want to blog because I don’t want to look back and wish I had. And I want to blog like nobody is watching.
So if anyone I know reads this, I shout a big, confident “Hello!” (But please don’t say anything to me or to anybody else we know. Thanks very muchly.)
