I’m still chuckling over this post by sweetney at BlogHer, which is about confessing and embracing our dorkitude as bloggers.
The thing is? I was a ginormous dork ‘wayyyyy before I started blogging. And more and more, as I evolve in my role as Actual Mom as opposed to Idealized Mom, I realize that there is just no hope for me. Sure, I can dress up and take out the Mature and Parental Mommy, but there is always another side to me.
Just tonight, for example, I took up the mango seed I’d carefully extracted from the pit of a mango we three enjoyed a few days ago. It had been soaking in water, and I gave a brief horticulture lesson while we planted it.
… and then I sat down with the kids and watched The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, planning to be bored, and I ended up laughing longer and harder than they did. (David Hasslehoff saves the day! I couldn’t help it! But still! DORK!)
