For the past five years I have hung up my real person cape and put on the mommy cape- everything I do is in some way related to mommy stuff, which is understandable because being a mom is my full time job, but anyone who has a job does not solely measure themselves on their work.
I have so many other interests that do not include my children- history, reading, current events, politics, cooking... But yet I sit here at this blog and write about things my kids do and how they drive me crazy, when those things are not tid bits that I feel I really should be sharing with the world and on top of that they aren't even that interesting. They are vanilla thoughts- vanilla is a flavor that is liked by a wide variety of people but doesn't convey any real feelings or thought. My mind is not vanilla- I have many opinions on everything around me and I feel like I have been keeping them to myself in fear that I would turn people off.
Well, writing about mommy stuff is boring me to tears so now I am going to keep it real and write about things that I actually find interesting. Maybe people will enjoy this change or maybe my readers will go running to the hills but at least I know that Just Call Me Cheap will be what I want to be.
