I normally avoid blogging about my dreams…

…but this one is pretty damn funny.

A blog troll (sadly not an actual troll but just a female human) was riding her bike past my house (I lived in a house!) and told me that I’m not the worst mom in the mommyblog-o-sphere. That honor goes, according to her, to Maggie Mason. So I’m there in my dream, wondering what the heck Maggie has done that is so awful (I don’t know her but she seems to like her son and not be psycho or anything), and the troll tells me it’s because she traipses all over the planet with him.

If I had a rolling laugh icon I’d put it here. What the heck, subconscious? Why would a troll that my brain made up focus on something I think is awesome as the pinnacle of Bad Mothering?

My theory is that deep down I think I am just a mommy blogger. Which–you know, there’s nothing wrong with being a mommy blogger, but if I am one then what about the four years I was blogging before Sam came into my life? Do they just not count?

    You’re changing, your life has changed, and you’re processing what that means for your blogging persona. You’re trying to reconcile the old you with the new you, and Maggie represents the dichotomy. The troll is your self-doubt, which you mock.

    I think it’s incredibly healthy.

    My blog has turned into 90% baby in the last week, and I’m not even the mom. Completely unavoidable.

    Hmmm, is it possible the gestation period for a mommy blog is 4 years [wink]?

    I just have to hope that not all blogs turn into mommy blogs, because if they do, that means I’m going to have a very unexpected baby arrive in the next year or two [too lazy to see exactly how long I’ve blurty’d icon]. (On the plus side, it would mean my long drought of sexual inactivity will be over soon ;-).
