No Scrapbooking for Me

I guess I'm just not that kind of mom. I want to be, but I'm just not. For four years now, I've been collecting scraps of paper, ticket stubs, trinkets, ribbons, cards, and thousands of digital photos with the intention of creating glorious scrapbooks for my children. But you know, I think I'm finally facing the reality that it just isn't going to happen. When do moms find time to do this kind of stuff! Between the dishes, the laundry and the games of hide-n-seek.... I dunno, maybe I'm just lame.

So, my solution is to start a blog. Will it still be around for Jake & Lila to enjoy when they're old enough to care about what their mom thought? Who knows! All I know is that sitting at my computer and typing is something I can do. I have thoughts-a-plenty and plenty of anecdotes. It'll lessen my guilt and as far as I can see, I don't need any fancy scissors, acid free tape or grommets to get the job done. This has got my name written all over it! (Maybe)
