I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a while. I just really felt the world needed another mom blog. Haha, okay maybe not. That is actually the reason I haven’t started for sometime. There are SO MANY mom blogs and tons of great, well-established ones…so what could I possibly add?
Well, I finally shoved fear aside and jumped in. With my “WordPress for Dummies” book in hand, I created this thing myself! And it feels great….ROAR!
My blog will be dedicated to reminding us to enjoy and celebrate life; to find joy in both the big planned out moments of life and the quiet ordinary ones. I’ll also write about our adoption journey; the one that happily resulted in our twin boys and the one currently underway as we await the next piece of our puzzle!
I named the blog Giggle Giggle Toot Roar to remind me who I am, both a mother and a strong woman.
The Giggle Giggle Toot part represents a parenting phenomenon that I hope every parent gets to experience…when your child laughs and then toots and then laughs again because they tooted. Now that is the stuff life is (should be) made of! GIGGLE GIGGLE TOOT is a reminder to learn from our children’s uninhibited laugher and joy.
The Roar part represents something I say often, “I am woman, hear me roar!” ROAR is a reminder to just LIVE and quit worrying!
I write to laugh at myself and to hopefully force a smile in your very busy day. I don’t expect to teach you anything. I don’t claim that my way is the right or only way. You won’t find lectures or judgment here. I just want to share a little piece of my story with you in hopes of bringing a giggle or a roar or even a…well you know.
Here’s to laughing more!
