Friday morning, as I was spending some time on the computer, I noticed that I had my very first not-so-nice anonymous comment on a WriterChic post. Apparently, in response to my open letter post, someone thought it necessary to suggest I "get a life." Duly noted. I'll get right on that. (For what it's worth, I deleted the comment. I don't need to look back in years to come and remember even one more negative thing.)
So, later in the weekend, I, again, noticed an anonymous comment. This one wasn't so blatantly venomous; it was merely, I'm assuming, another mommy, "introducing" herself, and suggesting I try to rock Seth before nap time to calm him.
In response to her, thanks for noticing Seth's chair. We love it, and can't wait to use it with our new son in August. Yes, we use the rocker daily with Seth, although not usually at nap time. We have been having perfect success with an afternoon routine that leads into Seth going down "unassisted" for his afternoon rest. However, if MY schedule has greatly disrupted his nap time routine, he tends to not sleep, but rather, play with his toes, sing to himself, and, unfortunately, chew on his crib rails. Hence my request to him in my "letter." Please rest assured that Seth gets a daily dose of both mommy and daddy loving in that rocker.
Now, that all said....
I have Sitemeter. I know how many people are reading, when they're reading, how they get here, how long they stay, and the locale from which they're logging in. (For example, my second to last visitor, per what I just checked, was from Oregon -- waves frantically to Kendra!!!!) So, I know you're out there. Please say hi, in "person." I'd love to get to know my readers -- you don't have to send a DNA sample or anything.... I'd just like to know who you are, and maybe why you're reading. I've made some of my BEST friends through the Internet and blogging. Maybe you, oh anonymous reader, are destined to be one of them...?
