I know I’ve been absent. I know there’s a lot I’ve left unwritten, untold. Like John locking eyes with me in complete glee when he rediscovered The Wiggles. Or how Sam astounds me every day with the new words he knows (“Mommy! fruit salad? yummy, yummy!”).

We’ve got a theme here.

I know I should be better at this, better at being the keeper of our stories. Every night I collapse into bed and think: Another day without blogging. Sigh. And I had picked up a certain rhythm. Tonight I’m still too tired and too scattered in my thoughts to write anything coherent, but since I’ve just met a huge work deadline, I do believe I will actually have a moment (maybe two!) to breathe this week. And to blog.

I miss it.

  • A friend once gave me some very good advice: “Don’t should on yourself.”

    It’s okay to be too tired to write. It’s okay to be not tired and STILL not write. There are no rules for doing this the “right” way.

    We’ll all still be here when you feel like blogging again.

  • My husband sometimes gets frustrated with the constant pictures I take of the boys. He says that I spend more time “capturing the moment” than I actually spend “in the moment”. He might be right. Sometimes I get so caught up on preserving the memory that I forget to create the memory.

    You sound stressed right now and maybe what you need to do is just focus on living the moments and enjoying them.

    We’ll all still be here!

  • What is it about the Wiggles? They are so important in our house, too. Right now we are alternating between listening to “Toot, Toot, Big Red Car” and the “Yummy, Yummy” CD.

    Don’t feel pressured to blog!! You should be taking care of yourself. You can blog later when they are older and things have settled down more. I didn’t mean to put pressure on you with my last comment.

    Twin two-year-old boys would be enough of a challenge, but add in the autism thing and it’s a real doozie. And you know I know what I’m talking about

  • Although blogging benifits others who read–like me, a mother of twin boys and 2 children on the “spectrum”—blogging is ultimately for you.

    You are a very busy person. Twin boys are alot to care for. They tend to always run in opposite directions at the worst possible time! LOL.

    Take care.
    I really like what “mom-nos” wrote.
    it is very good advice.

  • I know where you are coming from, I don’t blog as often as I would like to. Hope that all is well and we’ll be here when you are ready and feel like blogging, look forward to hearing from you again.
