All things in moderation

This is my WMW confession....

I debated on this post. I've actually been writing it in my head all morning, but I wondered if I'd actually make the time to post it. If I'd once again neglect the housework and million other things on my to do list just to sit and write my blog.
And you are reading this, so I guess you know what decision I made.
Truth is, I love blogging. But sometimes it crosses the line from being an outlet to being an obsession. Sometimes I can't fall asleep at night because I am thinking about what my next post will be. And then I look around my house and see all the things I have given up because I had to post on my blog and I wonder if it was really worth it.
So I am taking a little break. Because as much as I'd love to say I can do it all, I can't. And my toilets aren't going to clean themselves.
I promise not to be gone long. I have a few pre-scheduled posts that will be up soon and if the spirit moves me, I'll post. But I'm not forcing it. Next week my little boy is going to turn one, and I can think of no better gift than giving him mommy's undivided attention.

There is a very fine line we walk with our blogs and how much time we allow them to take over our lives. I think you are doing the right thing by taking a break to focus on such an important time in you and your son's life!

The most important thing is to really live your life, because that's what the really good posts are made of. And of course, we will be here when you are ready to come back :)

good for you!! go read www.mommyologist.com her post today is exactly what you said. don't feel guilty.

i'm always wondering if blogging is going to be a phase... you know, in 5 years, how many of us will still be around.

enjoy your boy... he won't be little forever.

Coming over from WMW - good for you on the blogging! I know it's easy to get caught up in things like this and miss out on other things...I was guilty of that during the first few months of my son's first year. Now, I pull away and unplug at night so it can just be the two of us.

Thanks for sharing - Happy (early) Birthday to your little boy!

A fine line indeed! Borderline obsessive here... I've been seeing more and more posts about people taking a break or stopping for a period of time. Our little ones won't be this small for very long... the time passes too quickly!

And... happy birthday to your litte guy! 1 years old and the gift of mom's undivided attention is priceless... ENJOY!!
