“Hey, Mom,” Reed greeted me when I picked him up from ski school on a recent weekend. We began walking from the slopes to the condo. “What did you do today while the rest of us were skiing?”
“I did some writing.”
“You write a LOT. What are you always writing about?”
“Well, today I was working on an interview project and answering some questions about open adoptions. In fact, someone asked me specifically what YOU think about adoption. So, Reed, what DO you think about adoption?”
Pause. “Honestly, Mom. I don’t think about it much at all.”
It’s time to re-assess my goals, my values, my children’s changing needs, as well as my own.
As a result of this assessment, I am making some changes around Weebles Wobblog. And they’re all good. So KEEP YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS.
You’ll see less emphasis here on open adoption, although I will still participate in Heather’s Open Adoption Roundtable. I am likely to continue to write-up shareable parenting moments, some that may have to do with adoption. All open adoption posts will still be accessible, and all inbound links to those posts are still welcome. There is even a long-awaited event brewing at this moment that I will eventually post about here.
Not much else will change, content-wise. Perfect Moment Mondays will remain as a prompt to be mindful during the week. Vignettes from my life will still be displayed in all their glory. Parenting moments are sure to keep providing fodder. We’ll still write limericks and revisit the 1970s. I’ll continue to tell how I reconcile being a New-Age Libertarian , and I’ll share my love for music and what works for me in living a charmed life (as evidenced by the people in it — YOU).
I thank you for your support thus far, and I ask you to stick with me as I undergo this slight shift.
