Memories, Light The Corner Of My Mind

Hey! Remember waaaaaay back, when the bulk of my writing revolved around drinking and practicing roundhouse kicks on house plants?

Yeah, that was interesting.

Oh! And remember that time I got pregnant and all I could write about was being pregnant? I recall a good few of you were either pregnant or in the process of becoming pregnant or had just finished being pregnant.

Yeah, those were good times, Whoorl.

Oh, and what about that time little Wito was born? I had tons of parenting questions for you all. Man, you guys were awesome. Leaving me comments all of the time and sending me incredibly supportive emails.

Come to think of it, we were pretty damn awesome.

Yes! You were! I mean, you are! So, I continued to write about parent-related stuff, figuring that’s why the majority of you were here in the first place. And mostly because, HEY, it’s what I do ALL DAY LONG. I posted “baby products of the day” and fun photos of Wito in the sidebar because hell, you walked with me from Drinky McDrunk to preggers to the NICU to torpedo mastitis boobs to the SAHM/career issue to gigantic toddler man.

We’ve been around for a lot of changes in your life, Whoorl.

Totally! However, I became super lazy and stopped posting baby products in the sidebar, even though lots of you emailed asking where in the hell they went. (Oh, and HELLO! Very sorry about not returning those emails!) Then came this post, which I had no idea would have such a snowball effect regarding of all things, HAIR. Hair, people.

Yes, you seem to be quite obsessed with the subject lately.

I know. You’re right. It’s just that it’s so fun! My little pet project! However, I’m pretty sure there are a good few of you who would like for me to shut the hell up about the hair.

Well, maybe some Wito updates or baby talk would be nice, considering we’ve been here for you all the way, PATTING YOUR BACK AND BEING SUPPORTIVE THROUGH EVERYTHING. NOT THAT WE REALLY CARE EITHER WAY, CRAZY LADY.

Whoah! I prefer “quirky”. QUIRKY.

Well, good news! I am now writing about more baby products than you could shake a stick at over at ParentDish. YAY for baby products! And online shopping! And child products! And parental products! And motherhood! Did I mention shopping? Will you stop by once in awhile? I’ve put my most recent links up in the sidebar.

(Look! I’ve already posted about Skip Hop’s brand new EVA foam playmats.)

(Which, incidentally, would have been perfect 4 months ago when I was searching the earth far and wide for decent modern-looking playmats to no avail, thus forcing me to buy a goddamn custom-made doodoo brown mat for Wito.)

(Well, that basically summarizes my review, minus the inappropriate language and attitude problems. I’ll save those lovely attributes for this website.)

(But, will you go visit me anyway?)

(You complete me.)

(Hair rules.)

    Great job on landing the writing gig — I’m sure you’ll soon be winning over thousands more fans!

    By the way, would still love to see that List of Whoorl-Approved Environmentally Safe Household Cleaning Products.

    Yes! I plan on posting that list on October 15th, Blog Action Day. Have you heard about it?

    I just learned something from your blog (admitting stupidity up front!)…I always thought it was…”Memories, like the corner of my mind”… !!! I could never figure out why memories were similar to corners or her mind! LOL DUH! Yet another reason to read Whoorl!
