Woah. PoopieMommy? Wait a minute…who is that? I’d forgotten all about her. She used to write this awesome, funny and honest blog about parenting that would arrive in my inbox every day and make me feel so much better about how I’m raising my kids because she is always making mistakes too and laughing her way through the insanity. But I think she retired or quit or gave up or something because she hasn’t been out there in the blogosphere for quite some time. I figured we may never hear from her again. Too bad, I kinda got used to her daily dose of truth and ridiculousness. Hmmm, wonder what’s going on…
Well, Poopies, it’s true. My lovely blogging life has been shelved. Put on hold. Paused. Life and work and kids and deadlines and so many other factors have taken over and there just weren’t enough hours in the day to devote to PoopieMommy. Perhaps she’ll make a triumphant return during her semester break. She does have a few tricks up her sleeves and a new little name she’s playing around with. I wouldn’t count her out just yet. It’s all about finding balance, and Poopie lost hers for awhile so the bloggy blog had to take a backseat. It’s not because she doesn’t want to do it or because she’s not still inspired to reach out, it’s simply a matter of timing. And for now, the timing is off. BUT….
…something very important has prompted PoopieMommy to temporarily come out of retirement: Hurricane Sandy. Her heart is aching and breaking for all those poor people along the east coast who’s homes have been destroyed and who’s lives have been completely shattered by this catastrophic storm. Poopie knows that one of her greatest gifts is her voice and her writing and her ability to reach people through her words. So, please, please take a moment to read Poopie’s latest Examiner article. Click on the link below and find out how you really can make a difference. It’s never too early to teach our children how to give back. With the temperatures getting even colder, a new storm descending as we speak and so many people still without power or permanent shelter, your small effort and tiny contribution can actually provide many things needed by victims of the hurricane during this slow, painful recovery.
Poopie will be back with her new name & design in 2013. Until then, may you all stay healthy, happy, balanced and full of compassion. She misses you terribly and thinks of all her Poopies often. Much love, xxoo.
