As a mother, I feel like I’ve joined an amazing sisterhood. I feel more included and part of something great than I have ever felt before. When I decided to be stay at home mom, I thought I would feel alone and secluded but I haven’t. I love this new community and everything mom related: mommy blogger, MOPS, Mother’s day, the mother’s room at church.
There is an article in the local newspaper today profiling “Mommy Bloggers.” I am honored (and beside myself giddy) to be included in a list of “local blogs to watch.” I was even more excited when I saw I was in the company of Fontenot Four and Mrs. Pate Writes.
Now, some people hate this term “Mommy Blogger”. They feel being labeled a mommy blogger implies they only produce pictures of toddlers eating peas and terrible stories about poop gone wrong. But I love the term. I don’t let it pigeon hole my writing. I define my mommy blog as a welcoming place to find hope.
I became a mommy the minute that stick turned pink and my mommy-ness will always come out in my writing. I aim to have the sweet, encouraging, loving side of motherhood come across in my words and especially in my blog. We may not all be mothers but who doesn’t just need a mama hug sometimes? I hope everyone who visits me here at The Envelope Keeper leaves with what they came looking for.
A laugh. A cry. An “I’ve been there, too.” Or just a hug.
