I have been thinking about what to do with this ol’ blog of mine for a long time. I have so enjoyed having this little space and hearing from you lovely readers. And by lovely readers I mean the two of you faithful folks who may still be hanging around.
This blog hasn’t been updated regularly in a long time – I think I really slowed down when I first got morning sickness with Ruby? And those kinds of blogs are never fun to follow. Ha!
Honestly, I think it is time to give blogging a break. I’ve been thinking about stopping for a while, and every time a part of me is all NOOOOOOO! And I think of all these things I want to write about. And then I get distracted by chocolate or a crying baby. And I never write.
See, I had all these visions and expectations in my head. I just knew that when I became a parent, my blog would become even more important to me. I thought that I would want to use it as a way to remember everything that’s happening, or a way to possibly whine about my new lack of sleep. (Oh, but that’s what Facebook is for, right?)
Instead, being a parent has consumed me. In such a good, wonderful, beautiful way. What I thought would be so important has kind of faded in the background. And other things have become higher priorities. Like, why write about the new art I made for Roo’s nursery when I could just sit and kiss the soft spot under her chunky cheeks?
I really hope to come back to blogging someday. But I want to be able to give it my best, and not just a random post every now and then. And Ruby won’t have these chunky cheeks forever. So, see you in a couple years or so? Ha! I kid.
If any of you would like to stay connected, I’m always on Instagram at whitneygothra. Seriously, I’m ALWAYS on. I’m surprised no one has reported me for posting too many baby pictures.
And to all of you lovely readers who took time out of your day to read my rambling thoughts, thank you. If I could, I would scoot the baby toys over and have all of you come hang out at my house for some coffee, cake, and hugs. Your comments and e-mails over the past few years have been such a blessing to me. I hope to “see” you again soon!
