Hello! My name is Mary. Oh wait, you know me as Marybeth don't you? Well that is what my mother has always called me. My name is actually Mary Elizabeth. (My mom had to get in a little of Jesus' mom and Aunt in there, she wanted to make SURE people knew how perfect I was!) At first I hated the name Marybeth, then it grew on me, then I married a Smith! I now hate to be referred to as Mary Smith, so you can call me Marybeth! (Confused yet....oh just wait!)
Now I know you all know I LOVE gnomes, but did you know that I am equally as fascinated with my new Mini Edward? I take him everywhere with me. We even went Strawberry picking together!
I'm sure you have realized how quirky I am, but let's just make sure you have the full picture...
I love gnomes ... but I never travel...
I love Harry Potter and Twilight to a very unhealthy extent...my husband will verify!
Although my favorite stories are about witches and vampires, I'm still a very devout Catholic (GASP!)
I RARELY swear, unless I've been drinking, then unfortunately I am a connoisseur of the F Bomb. But when Sober you will almost NEVER hear me use that word. I rather kinda loathe it. I'm not sure why....I just do!
HOWEVER!!! Some of my favorite blogs use the F Bomb quite religiously. And they don't bother me a bit. Usually it is quite fitting with their posts.
I'm a prude ... married to a sailor.
That's right....it makes no sense to me either ... or him for that matter
The mommy wars confuse me...and make me nervous.... or maybe I should be confident I (HOPE) I will never find myself in them because I am not like most mommy's. I can't find myself on either side of the war.
I never breast fed BUT I find breast feeding very beneficial
I bought disposable diapers BUT I agree that clothe are more earth friendly
I sometimes spank my kids (GASP) BUT I prefer not to and USUALLY use time outs or take away toys
I drink wine after a LONG horrible day with my children BUT it is rare and far from regular
So what does that make me? A bad mom with good tendencies or a good mom with bad tendencies? Or am I just a good mom gone bad but desperately searching to try and become good again or vice versa or WHO THE HECK STARTED THESE WARS ANYWAY!!!!
My blogging habits are unusual. I say this because I am not only about reading one TYPE of blog. I love mommy blogs, I love writer blogs, I love Cake Wreck blogs, I love man blogs, I even read techy blogs sometimes. The funniest thing about me, I think, is the fact that some of my favorite blogs are VERY Christian and wholesome and inspiring while other favorite blogs can range from smutty Twilight fan sites to mom sites that just tell it like it is regardless of what the world thinks!
Is any of this making sense to you?
So in short I am....
A gnome, mini Edward, Harry Potter loving Catholic who hates to swear but is entertained by those who do, all while trying to be a good mom in a bad moms body and then occasionally drinking away all the confusion while reading a smutty Twilight blogs right after I read a devotional blog about the Baby Jesus. All this until my sailor swearing husband comes home and I roll my eyes and tell him to watch his language all night!
So um....does all this make me a hypocrite?
If a woman yells at her husband in the middle of an empty forest does he still hear it? (Oh wait...answer to that question! NO, they wouldn't hear us if we are right in front of their faces!!! LOL)
Oh and have I mentioned how random I am?
Ok...it's alright to admit I have confused (and possibly scared) you! I just wanted to make sure we were all on the same page about who I am. (Which we can all admit...I don't think any of us really knows who that is!)
