What's Your Defining Post?

Jen at Conversion Diary has had the brilliant idea of creating a one-time blog carnival in which we can post a link to the one post that seems to define our blogs. The one post that could give a good description of what our blog is about on a daily basis. I love this idea, and I've been thinking about it all morning.

I have trouble picking one, though. Do I link to one of my more serious posts, because that's what I feel deep inside? Or do I link to one of my goofy stories, because that's what I most often write about? Really, the post that would be most representative of my blog-style is probably one of my Quick Takes - I am nothing if not random.

But to pick one post, I went through my archives all morning and found one that I think presents my life in the way that it most often comes across on this blog. Sometimes messy, sometimes silly, and usually with a bright side thrown in. Something that shows my love of my vocation, my calling as a mother. So I picked this one: This Is The Thanks I Get?, about a midnight bedwetting.

Read it if you have a minute, and tell me what you think. Is it representative of my blog? Does it describe what you know about me?

Join us at Conversion Diary to discover some new blogs by reading through the list of Defining Posts, and add your own!


  1. I love it. I love how it's funny and grimy and full of love. So very much captures the vocation of motherhood.

  2. Thanks for posting this. I just went and added mine to the list! I chose a serious one... even though I'm almost never serious.

  3. Perfect! It totally sums up the fabulous blend of ironic, tongue-in-cheek optimism I've come to love your blog for. "Someone has the yucky!" I love it.


Hmm...And how did that make you FEEL?
