Truth Tuesday

I'm starting a new blogging tradition called Truth Tuesday. My friend over at A Little Bird Told Me does one every week and I thought I'd give it a try! Why, you ask? I'm hoping that it will force me to update my blog more. Also, I normally only post pictures of Claire and brag about how cute she is. Maybe TT (Truth Tuesday) will help me to venture out a little more on my blogging topics.

TT will consist of random thoughts that have no general topic and are in no particular order. Here goes...

  • Our little blog is almost to TEN THOUSAND VIEWS. See how excited I am about it? I used my caps-lock key. That's how excited I am. I know some of you real bloggers out there get 10,000 views each week, but just let me be excited, okay? :)
  • Claire drew on her face with pen a few days ago. Some of you already saw that on facebook, but I didn't want anyone to miss out on my parenting-fail.
  • Richie has never left our toilet seat up. Ever. Keep in mind that we've been married for almost 3 years.  That's a real man right there. 
  • I get asked all the time if I'm going to go back to school to finish my degree. Just to be clear, I already graduated. I majored in Statistics with a Math minor. I posted the (obligatory) pictures of me in my cap and gown, and my diploma once it arrived. I assume people make this mistake because I had Claire. I believe in family AND education.
  • I think what Angelina Jolie did was very brave. That would be such a hard decision to make. I also think that anyone who hasn't had to make that decision before should keep their negative comments to themselves. Don't know what I'm talking about? Go HERE.
  • I'm now realizing that TT might just turn into a bragging post for me. I did have 3 "truths" about Claire crawling before 7 months old, climbing the stairs before 8 months old, and already knowing to give kisses when you ask for them. But I deleted those bullet points because I don't want to brag. 
  • I've considered deleting this whole blog post multiple times. I don't blog about feelings, so this blogging style is foreign to me. 

Well, that's all for this week's TT. Can you tell it's late? Good night!

Love this post. And it is okay to throw in some bragging. I love hearing what Claire is up to. :)

Ha ha, I love this. So glad you are jumping on the Truth Tuesday train. We need to get together.

Also, I totally agree about the Angelina Jolie thing. I think her story is a neat one and very inspiring. Maybe not right for everyone, but it was really eyeopening for me to read about.

And congrats on (almost) 10,000 views! YAY!
