About This Blog
Oh Boy Mom started out as a blog with stories and posts about my adventures raising three boys. There was also plenty for parents of girls as well, as I would feature guest posts from parents raising both genders in my “Comparing Notes” section.
The overriding feature of my blog, whether discussing parenting or not, has been humor. I was never one to take myself too seriously, and I made sure to highlight that in my writing.
But then, when our family was turned upside down by a major health crisis with our 9-year old, I wondered whether I could or should keep writing, let alone blogging. And if I did keep blogging, did I want it to be about this challenge? AND, if I did blog about this, did I dare try to keep the humor in my posts?
After much thought about what would be right for my family and me, I realized that not only did I absolutely need to keep writing, but that I also had to keep writing humor, even if the topic was not all that funny. What I’ve quickly discovered is that humor has become a necessity for our daily life and it has been the only way to keep us all sane, through a very difficult time.
So, I present to you a bit of a re-launch of Oh Boy Mom. It’s the same blog, with the same cast of characters, and the same humor, but the focus has changed. If you were a reader before, I can guarantee you will still enjoy my posts. If you are new here, welcome and come along for the ride!
If you have any questions or comments along the way, I’d love to hear from you!
