They tried to make me go to Rehab I said NO NO NO

I am officially back, the laptop is up and running again. So let's get to blogging (I posted earlier but that was not from home,Sshhhh). There are going to be a few for this one day so I can reach my goal 100 by C.J's Birthday 7/10. So make sure you keep reading (or go back later)

My sister said I was acting a bit crackish while on my blog hiatus, which is probably a lil true (all of us have a little whit whit in us sometimes). Blogging about the random things in my world has been a very good stress reliever. So while on my forced hiatus from the blogsphere I got back to writing in my mommy journal and my blog notebook (which is why you might read about 7 blogs from me in one day) and sparked in me what led me to blogging in the first place.

backstory:
When CJ was born I wrote down everything he did on a daily basis! How much he nursed, how many hours he slept and every little mildstone while I was home with him. I got the idea from one of the baby magazines (and from my sister great baby shower idea of having my friends write CJ a journal).Well those pages began filling up with other things like stories about me not having time to eat (so that was why I was a size 2 again), CJ almost crawling off the bed when I left him home with daddy,stuff like that.....

I've shared these stories with many of my friends in different phases of motherhood and always got the same responses.... you should write a book. I thought about it, then thought when would I have the time I already work two full time jobs. And what if my friends were just pulling my leg, but then again I never said I wanted to do anything with them I was just sharing because I know what they were going through. OH my mind was a wreck, well another of my dear friends bought it up recently. So I thought I would reach out to all of you. I know some of you are already published, looking to get published or work in journalism and what better source than the horse himself.... I'm not so naive that I don't know it will be hard work, I just want to hear your experiences in this field. See if I have the balls to do this :)

I have a title "My husband is allergic too.... “Tales of a newborn and new woman

All advice is welcome....

I love the title!

That's sweet though to keep a journal for him to read when he gets older. I love looking at my baby book well loved Lord knows where's it at now.

Umm...I know people at Pearson including the CEO. They do publishing. They told us who to contact and stuff if we wanted to be published. I can find out info. for you if you want though.

I say go for it. What do you have to lose? I don't even have a kid but I'd wait in line to get my book signed! Remember this: RISK IS WORTH THE REWARD!!!
