Oh! Hi, Mom!

This post is to welcome my mom to my blog. I imagine you'll have a lot of reading to do, now that you've discovered it!

You may be wondering why I never told you of this blog I keep. I started it originally to sort through my feelings about my discovery that the Mormon church isn't true, and then quickly I realized how enjoyable I find writing (something which may shock you, considering how much help from you I needed when writing papers in high school) and how it enables me to go back and touch on memories and feelings I don't often look at. In the beginning I thought it may be wise to keep the knowledge of this blog from my parents, in case I ever felt a need to rant or reminisce about painful subjects from childhood.

But, actually, I find I'm very glad you know of it finally. And you'll see that I haven't actually ranted or said anything bad about you thus far in this blog. This may be because I love you dearly, and find you one of my biggest blessings in this life.

You are the woman who kept me sane through childhood. You have continually given me acceptance, love, support, and understanding throughout my life. I love you with all my heart. You are a beautiful woman, and a pleasure to be with, and I look forward to interacting with you here. I can't wait to introduce you to all my blog friends!

Don't forget to look at the comments people left when you read my archived posts...some will be from the siblings and are hilariously funny. I hope you will feel free to leave comments too. (A lot of my comments got switched to "anonymous" when I switched to Blogger Beta, so unfortunately you won't know who some of my comments came from....)

Anyway, a big, warm welcome to Mom from SML. I love you!

PS ~ if you become an addict to blogging like I am, don't blame me.

PPS ~ I asked the siblings to keep quiet about my blog, so don't be mad at them, OK?

So, now that your mom is here, I guess this means the swearing has to stop, huh?


J/K! Welcome, SML's Mom!

I can't imagine having my mom read my blog. Welcome to your mom though!

Freckle Face Girl said...

Welcome! You should consider heeding SML’s warning though, it is addicting!

wry catcher said...

Well, cool - and a lovely welcome post too. Brought a wee tear to my eye.

Hi SML's mom! I have a potty mouth, but not today. :-)

Cele said...

Welcome SML's Mom!

Gosh, I wish I could get my mom just online.

Howdy, to SML's mom :)

And a big "heya" and "howdy-do!" to SML.

Welcome, SML's Mom! It's been lovely getting to know your daughter.

SML- Wow! I'm not sure I'm ready to have my family discover my blog. I kind of even had a freak-out about it this weekend. I hope it works out well for you.

Also, I miss you smiling face on my blog! If you just find it unappealing lately, no worries. Don't feel pressure to come over. But if I offended you, I'm sorry! I miss you!

You have sooo missed out SML's Mom!! Your daughter is WAY cool and is an inspiration to all. She is responsible for inlarging the outerblogness circle. We love her for humerous insights!! Welcome aboard!
P.S. I write a lot about sex...no apologies, just fair warning!

Hi Mom, from Arizona where it was almost 80 today...

A huge "Hello" to all who have learned to love my daughter! Isn't she awesome? The first thing I told her is that I hope with all of me that she doesn't hesitate to continue using her "voice" in whatever way she wants, needs or chooses. It's very special and probably the best therapy possible! Besides, she has nothing to hide or be ashamed of. And, she can rant at me if she wants...I have yet to meet a perfect mother!

I have always said, and I continue to say...anyone could have mothered Sister Mary Lisa...and honestly, each of my children is wonderful. Does that mean they are perfect? NO! But wonderful, YES! I'm very, very blessed. My regards to all of you...I look forward to meeting you all...

Hello, aka Madre!

You sound really great. I think it will be fun to have you over in one of SML's Blogaholics meeting.
When is the next one, btw?

Just like Cele, I would be amazed if my mom would appear online. Her computer is still down in her basement, unpacked and untouched for three years or so.

Hi SMLs mom,
I love love love your daughter.

Hiya SML's mom!

Welcome, from Washington, D.C.'s Virginia suburbs.

Hi Madre,

My mom reads my blog too. I don't mind it. I told her flat out that she can read it and even comment but I don't want to hear one peep from her about it unless it was positive. Anything negative and she was kicked off.

A big "hello" to SML's mom also.
