I can’t believe it’s been almost a week since I blogged last. Time flies when you’re, well, struggling. I wasn’t necessarily that busy, but finding a few seconds to sit down quietly at my computer has been difficult. (The operative word there was “quietly”… actually, it could have been “sit” too.)

Day 260 – After spending an entire day inside the house with the kids, I made one comment on Twitter about needing adult interaction. Within seconds, I had people on Facebook, Twitter and (gasp!) by phone checking in on me. Yay for the internet! I sometimes use it to shield me from the surroundings, but sometimes it’s so much more useful as a way to reach the outside world.
Day 261 – I was at the park this evening with my two little ones when a mother and her young daughter in a stroller came by. My 3 year old smiled at them and said: “Hi! This is my mommy and this is Beatrice.” She seemed so proud to introduce us to the world, and I was so happy watching her be so fearless. (Though I think this means we have to have the “stranger” talk soon.)
