I simply can’t understand what Mom might have meant when she said (to paraphrase) that my brain was just not in the blogging world right now. Seriously, haven’t you all been reading my twice-weekly posts? Haven’t you noticed how concise, witty, thought-provoking, and clear I have been?
To be totally honest, there have been passing moments of clarity in some of my days. I have thought of things to blog about for several months now. I even have a series of now irrelevant photos that were originally destined to be blogged. Hmm. However, I have not given up on blogging – it has just been relegated to that same class of activity as cleaning the bathroom. You know, things that you would like to do someday if you get a chance.
I will go on the record as saying that explaining the nuances of Christian living to two two-year-olds is a rich experience, and one that is likely to take the blogging out of me. Our twins are hilarious and outrageous, and completely delightful. I love the two-year-old phase: from the “my do it,” and the fact that we need to talk about who is actually in charge, to my son telling me, “Look in my eyes, Mama” as he makes an effort at getting out of some well-deserved discipline. Perpetual hilarity – the kind that can leave me panting on the couch more often than is really reasonable. But the wildness of these little personalities is such a joy to corral and shape.
As I write, I have one on my lap, one perched on the arm of my chair, and one standing beside me. Wait, strike that. One is behind me on the chair with his arms around my neck, one is on my lap, and all three are cashing in on promises of glue and paper and scissors. I will go make good on this promise and be back to finish this post in no time. Just hold on a second!
