i’m up for the challenge


My little blog bounces all over the place topic-wise, doesn’t it? One day I’m sharing pics of my kid, the next I’m pissed about someone’s stupid comments about my baby weight. A lot of days I complained about being pregnant, and nowadays I have more than enough toddler-oddities to bitch about – on top of the obvious joys of being a mother.

Because let’s face it, there aren’t too many things more awesome than looking at a child that you birthed yourself and seeing them slowly grow into a walking, talking little human.

There also aren’t a lot of things more daunting than not screwing up that walking, talking little human.

The last several years of my life have been completely unexpected, and it’s been fun to document some of the unplanned chaos with you. I’ve always wanted to blog more regularly, and I have a huge list of things I come up with in my head when I’m having internal conversations with myself (what, am I the only one that does that?).

This month, I’m participating in NaBloPoMo. It’s a mouthful, huh? The challenge is to blog every day for the month of November. I missed the boat on the 1st of the month, but I DID post on the 31st of October, so I’m going to give myself a pass. Hopefully this will inspire me to start posting on a more frequent basis and give me a chance to see what kinds of topics really connect with you guys.

What I’m trying to say is, you’re going to be hearing a lot from me over the next several weeks!

If this makes you run away and unsubscribe, I completely understand, as I get tired of hearing me speak, too, and I mean, how long will you really find me funny if you’re reading from me every. single. day.

But I’m doing it! I’m doing it and you will laugh and smile and comment and love every second of it along with me!

Speaking of comments – I have gotten a few DMs on Twitter about my email address. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions or comments at unexpecting.rebecca@gmail.com. I love reading comments and DMs, and will love reading emails just as much.

I hope you’ll stick around for the ride. I’m really looking forward to it!

Anyone else participating in NaBloPoMo? If so, let me know your blog so I can keep up with you, too!
