Having my privacy

Grace is getting to the age where she understands the concept of privacy, and i think it's the cutest thing in the world. She used to just invite the whole world in when she was potty training, but slowly she's started to want to keep the door closed. She's beginning to understand that there are some things that aren't for the whole world.

I'm feelin' the same way . . . about my blog. So, if you read this, and want to keep reading it, here's your chance to let me know. (If you're on my sidebar, you'll obviously get an invite) And if you're one of the many strangers who's felt inclined to leave a comment on my blog and completely freak me out--well, I'm closing my door on YOU!!! I'm having my privacy!!!!

My #1 purpose with this blog is to be able to write whatever i want, whenever i want--so that my kids know who i was when they were little, so that I will know who i was when they were little, and to help my ever-failing memory recall these precious years. There have been too many things I've wanted to write about lately and pictures I've wanted to post, but i haven't--only because I'm never 100% sure who's reading this. And the only thing that's been keeping me from doing this is knowing how (not) often i check my friends' blogs who are already having their privacy. i fear the same future for my blog . . . but I'm quickly getting over it.

I totally agree, I am going to do that also, I just need to figure out how to and just do it. Kelly is getting paranoid, especially since we are in the FSO now.

Please add me to your invitee list. I love seeing pictures of your darling girls and reading your fun accounts of daily life. I can so relate, but not on the sewing and being creative thing. :) Very impressive. Don't you just love three girls? I don't know what I'd do with a boy, although Brian would love one.
