Why am I starting a blog?
That's the question I asked myself as I sat down to set up my profile. Do I really want my family's daily adventures out there for all of cyberspace to see? Do I actually have anything to say? The answer to both questions, I decided, is a resounding "I'm not sure..." But I've been thinking and talking about it for so long that I decided it's now or never.
The main reason that I want to blog is to keep our family, scattered across the country (and world), close to the goings-on in our house. Every day I have at least one story I want to call and tell to each of you- usually involving Max's antics. This way I can actually keep you all informed and, hopefully, entertained.
Speaking of Max's antics, you're probably wondering about the title of this blog. While I may have to change it someday when we (God willing) have a daughter, for now this sums up our little family perfectly! Max is currently memorizing the poem "The Jabberwocky" by Lewis Carroll. I hope to soon have a video performance to share with you, but for now just go and read the poem here and replace all of the r's with w's... that will give you a rough idea.
So in conclusion, I would like to dedicate this blog to Paul & Maureen, Tony & Catherine, Monica & Glen, Kelley, Megan, Patrick and Liam. We wish you were here!
