First, a quick note, cuz lately, I’m big on those “First, a quick note” posts, if you hadn’t realized. I am going to participate in that NaBloPoMoFo thing during the month of November, where I will be posting (Dear God) DAILY!
But, I’m going to make it interesting.
During the month of November, I am going to have a daily
Minute With Manic!
With YOU as the STAR! It’s going to be simple, and fun, and will be a great way to have Bloggers and readers find other Bloggers whom they might enjoy.
So, for every day in November, I will do my regular posting blah-blah-whiny-bitchy-woe-is-me, with-a-little-bit-o-snarky-humor-thrown-in-there crap, but I will also feature a fellow Blogger/commenter. YOU!
All you need to do is leave a comment that day, and the next day I will randomly select a person to be featured on Manic Mommy.(Random Selection means I will tell one of my kids to give me a number and that person who left that comment in the comment trail for that number will be the one to be featured the next day.)
For the daily featured Blogger, you must be willing to answer THREE random and obscure, and possibly embarrassing and silly questions openly and honestly. I’ll post the Q&A, and also the link to your Blog. The funnier the answers, the more likely someone will pop over to find your Blog!
You then, just have to post on your Blog that you’re being featured at Manic Mommy’s. Not too hard huh? And the questions will be fun; I promise! So, you can start right now by leaving a comment here and then I will choose randomly one of you to interview for the November 1 post!
(Also, keep in mind, you may still leave a comment under the previous post, Meeting Melisa as we will be raffling off a signed copy of Remembering Ruby on Friday!)
And now, I bring you our regularly scheduled posting on RELATIONSHIPS:
You know when you have a baby, and you think and hope, “Dear God, I hope it comes out healthy” and then the next thing you think is, “Dear God, I hope it’s a [insert preferred gender here], and then the next thing you think is “Dear God, I hope it kinda looks like me.”
This is true right? Not that we people are narcissistic, but don’t you think most parents do want a child who looks kind of like the parent? I remember on 20/20 or some other show a long time ago, there was this story on newborns and that they almost always come out looking like the daddy because, well, you already know for certain who the mommy is, because the squirmy little bloody blob just came out of THAT BODY, so of course, the newborn belongs to THAT mommy, but what about the daddy? Who’s to know for sure who the daddy is?
Who’s your daddy? Who’s your daddy?
(You know you’re all bee-bopping in your chairs right now, chanting, “Who’s your daddy? Who’s your daddy? I’m your daddy!” Well, if you weren’t then, you probably are now!)
Anyway, for the longest time, no one would say my kids looked like me, well, at least not Ajers and Diva. I think Tukey is my side of the family all day long, anger-management issues included. But everyone always says Ajers and Diva look like their daddy, and their daddy’s side of the family. And I’m OK with that. I think Mr. Manic is handsome, because why else would I have married him? Certainly not his charm, or his wit, or even his sense of humor!
Lately though, I’ve been noticing as Diva has been maturing, she’s growing up, becoming a ‘tween, which scares the hell out of me, but that’s a post for another day. She is beginning to look a bit like me. Really. And I hadn’t realized this until I came across a couple pictures taken on different days, but when I saw them, I was like, “Wow, we really do resemble one another!”
Well, I might say that all day long, but I’ll let you all judge for yourselves. What do you think?
Happy Halloween! Now leave a comment, and I’ll need an email too so I can contact you if you’re the Random
Minute With Manic!
Let’s have some fun during the month of November!
