A little apprehensive

So son number two and I were talking, and he made reference to my blog content. I was a bit surprised since ...

"Now how would you know that, since you aren't a reader of my blog, are you?" The look on his face said "Crap!" as he admitted that no, he wasn't one of my readers.

I was curious, so I asked him "Why don't you read my blog?" It's not an unusual thing, I can safely say that more people don't read my blog, than do, and in my family, the ratio of don't read to do read is even higher.

He started by saying "I get home from work pretty late, and I'm pretty tired. Most of the time I don't even read my e-mail and I just pop into FaceBook for about a half an hour or so to see what it going on there." And then he said it: "And to tell you the truth Mom, I've read your blog, and that's not your best writing. I've read your other things, and your blog just really annoys me because I know your writing is much better."

Thank-you .................... I think?

Coach reads my blog... I've seen him and he's made reference to it. As for my other family members? I always thought they didn't read. But lately I have found that most of them do.... um, ok, not sure how I feel about that. I mean, it's a great place to find out what's going on with me, learn about my mind, stories about my life from my perspective..... It just amazes me when someone refers to my "page"....

Gotta love kids, even grown up ones. I hope you gave him a smack-up-the-side-of-the-head as he is surely old enough and can take it!! LOL, just kidding. *I* love your blog, and your helium, and whatever else you write!

Oh Mary…don’t feel too bad. The large majority of my family fails to take notice of my online presence as well…of course now I don’t think I’ll be asking why. :)

Thanks everyone! And thanks for reading me. Besides, what son #2 said was a compliment .......right?
~Shaking my head wondering~

I love your blog and the way you write. My children hop on my blog sometimes but they are not regular readers. I just love the honesty in your son.
