Being a SITS member, I've come across a lot of Mommy blogs. And when I say a lot, I mean A LOT. It seems that blogging has become the new extra curricular mommy activity, if such a thing even exists or ever existed. Gone are the women's clubs of yesteryear. Today, Mommies have blogs that connect them to bloggy mommy friends from all over the country. And what do you think Mommies blog about? Their kids.
3. When Heather was about 4 I was out at the mall with her when two young ladies approached me to tell me how adorable my daghter was. This was the 80's and the girls had the big hair and the 80's clothes and make up. They're making all this fuss over Heather. Heather is a real girly-girl and she loved girls with lots of makeup. She turned to the first girl (who was very pretty) and said, "You're really pretty," and before the girl could respond she turned to the other one and said, "and you're not." I knew right then and there that Heather had inherited my gay bitch gene.
Well there you have it. Even 48 yo gay dads with 29 yo daughters can sometimes come up with funny antedotes regarding children. Yes, dogs are like children and I don't want to argue the point. (If you don't believe it's true, than you need to see Molly Shannon in The Year of the Dog. And don't miss Laura Dern's spot on portrayal of an anal, over-protective mother. Yea, you know the type.) So thank you Mommies, for letting me be part of your blogging community. I'll do my best to keep up with you, one farting dog/kid at a time.
