Blogging Not Blogging

happy philbaby makes you happy

If I were a good blogger, I’d already have a queue of relevant posts waiting in the wings, scheduled and ready to go on a timely and consistent schedule.  30 Healthy Super Bowl Snack, 87 Homemade Valentines for Under $1, and Celebrate President’s Day with This Historical (and Fun!) Breakfast would all be set to post in the next week.  I’d be in the kitchen making Easter goodies and taking 457 photos, in order to pick the perfect Pinterest money shot.  I’d be pouring out my heart, ranting about inequality somewhere, and telling you how to save $700 with one easy trick.

And I really do mean to do those type of things.  I have pictures I’ve taken that need to be edited for blog posts.  Posts I’ve written that need photos taken.  Ideas rolling around in my head that I want to share with you.
Instead I’m up all night with #Philbaby.

Yes, he has his own hashtag, mostly so I can find his pics easily on Instagram.

Milk drunk FTW!

Please forgive my wayward blogging ways. I promise I’ll get back to a regular posting schedule.

Someday. After I sleep.

I love comments. Tell me what you think!

    I love the photo of you with the kids! It’s like my house. I wish I took more pictures with my kids. I never let people take photos. If anything, my own personal take-away is to get over myself and just take some family photos!

    You’re forgiven and you have 1o awesome, and valid, excuses for not blogging! Me? I just have trouble making myself do it in spite of a lacking *want to* lately! We’ll get it back!

    It’s all about priorities! Your’s are right where they should be. Love your authenticity!

    Love the baby pics. My 20mo daughter loves to see pictures of babies and kept squealing. Hopefully, she’ll still be thrilled with babies when our new one arrives in a few months! =)

    No need for you to apologize for not blogging! You obviously have your hands very full. =)

    “queue of relevant posts waiting in the wings”
    Heh! That’s a good one. There are some bloggers out there that have dozens of posts scheduled out. Me, I’ve been doing it for a few years, and not there just yet.
    Just the fact that you have the energy to upload photos of the kiddos, well then, bully for you!

    oh yeah, for sure get some sleep! I remember those days, my “baby” is 11 now…oh how I miss the milky-smelling baby stage! He is adorable!

    I feel like I’ve been slacking, and I only have one! I’ll make a mental note that things are likely to get worse as our family grows. :)
