Reader All-Skate: Why are You Here?

Our house is in a constant state of evolution. Is that normal? We've come to a place where I'm finally really happy with the living room, moderately pleased with the dining room and happy happy happy with the kitchen.

Which must be why I suddenly have the itch to re-do Sweet B's room. It could also have to do with the fact that she's taught herself how to catapult out of her crib. Her sweet face now greets me in the kitchen promptly at 7 each morning alongside the Squirt. Time for a big girl bed? A big girl bed is an obvious excuse to get in there and re-paint the blue walls that I now dislike so intensely. Any excuse to start a new Pinterest board right? 

All this brings me to the reason for my post today. I'm curious why you wonderful people read this blog each week. Do you care what we do with Sweet B's room? Would you rather read more stories about my potty-training exploits? Do you like it when I get all serious?

In the interest of pleasing you, the customer, I've created a little survey. Look at the top left of the blog...under the header and HOME link...see it? Why Do You Read? Would you just check all the answers that apply real quick? Or heck, get crazy and leave a comment letting me know what you like to read about.

A blogger asking for comments is like the nerdy guy asking the homecoming queen to prom - I'm putting it out there and bracing for total rejection, so keep that in mind and don't let me fall on my face here. Commenting is almost totally painless.

If you read this in your email feed, send me a short email or click HERE to be directed to the actual blog site and then take the survey.

Thanks friends! 


  1. I voted but also thought I'd leave a comment...fellow bloggers need to stick together! But seriously, I love reading your blog because I get a peak into the SAHM world that I don't inhabit. You keep it real and are honest with how you're feeling about whatever is going on in your life and I find that so refreshing!

  2. I appreciate it all, really. I like the silly, the serious, the helpful. I like that I can keep up with you when I don't see you as much as I'd like to. :)

  3. I read because I like keeping up with you. Makes me feel connected.

  4. Oh wow, there are so many reasons I love reading your blog! I've always wanted to have a big family and since we only have one child right now (but another on the way, yay!) I get to live vicariously through you and enjoy the life of a mom with three kids. I also enjoy your house projects. I have neither money nor energy to tackle all the projects I want to do in our house and it's fun to see someone who does :) I enjoy the way you write. I blog myself and I love an entertaining, well written blog like yours. I like that you post pretty consistently as far as I can tell and don't leave us without something to read for weeks on end. I ADORE pictures. I ADORE cute kids. Your blog has lots of both. Is that enough? ;)
