I've never been all that good at the regularity part of keeping a journal. I'm going to try again here. My kids are so amusing, and I'd like to think I have something to add to the already overflowing blogosphere. I'm probably deluding myself, but that's okay, no one is forcing you to come read what I write. Mostly this is for me, anyway.
Which brings me to the subject of my kids and their names. I see the benefit in creating pseudonyms for web use, keeping their actual names out of search engines, at least here, but I had so much trouble keeping track of whom I was talking about that I changed their blog nicknames once after I picked them already. Since I often refer to my children by their initials in real life, I'm changing their nicknames once again. I will now refer to each child by his or her first and middle initials. The first reference in a given post will also include his or her age at time of posting.
So I'm going to engage in a little retroactive nomenclature (aka back-dating the text) here for my own peace of mind, and then see about remembering to actually post here ever for my zero readers to see (but mostly for me, so zero readers is just fine.)
