My first blog... and an apology

Alright – let the blogging begin! I’ve been thinking about doing a blog for about a year now… so now that I have some vacation time on my hands, I’m looking to put a check mark beside this “to do”.

So I’m going to start my blogging adventure with an official and public apology. To all of the friends and family members and even those strangers that I have looked at and passed judgment upon in regards to the state of their car interiors. No… I’ve never said anything to you out loud… but inside my head there was definitely a statement or two like “what a fraking mess”! What sort of mess could I be referring to? Well none other than the chaos of Cheerios and fruit snacks and crackers and cookies that little the back seats and floor of any type of vehicle. Sure, sure – I’ve always gotten the fact that little kids (and even not so little kids) are messy – but I didn’t understand this kind of messy! This is another one of those things that I have learned over the last couple of years that you just can’t relate to unless you go through it yourself. The fact is parents need to travel with snacks for kids (apparently kids get hungry/grouchy/bored and food helps to keep all of us sane)… and those kids are going to make a mess with said snacks. And ultimately the parents are tired and have priorities much higher than vacuuming up the crumbs from the car seat.

So to all of you out there, please accept my apologies for thinking that you were either lazy for not cleaning up the mess or that your kids had crazy table manners. And to all of you new Mommies or soon to be Mommies or gonna be a Mommie one day… you too will be having one of these great “ah-ha” moments one day. So be sure to keep all of your judgments on the inside!
