Today’s fabulous guest post is by The Crayon Wrangler, who has been our September Blogger of the Month. I hope you have had a chance to visit her blog to enjoy her flare for words and most recently her eye for the fun and beautiful. She has just opened her own photography studio and the photos are just wonderful. Please join me in thanking Alycia for sharing her site with us this past month!
Personal Action: Woken up by the baby
Social Media Reaction: Tweet about how early it is. “Follow” Folgers on Twitter. Search Facebook for a Fan Page of moms addicted to caffeine.
Personal Action: Wake up other children and start breakfast
Social Media Reaction: Search back of cereal box for a web address. Start a discussion in a forum about how you fed your kids a cold pop tart so other moms will chime in and make you feel better about your choice.
Personal Action: Flip on some educational programming for the kids
Social Media Reaction: You are now in a full fledged battle about nutritious breakfast ideas within the previous mentioned forum.
Personal Action: Hurriedly throw some clothes to make it to the grocery store before first nap.
Social Media Reaction: Tweet about the mean breakfast food women, take a Twitpic of your pathetic yoga pants in the store, take another Twitpic of your temper tantrum 2yo and receive tons of sympathetic tweets from other moms who have “been there, done that”
Personal Action: Put up groceries and feed children lunch making sure it would be nutritious enough for the mean mommy forum.
Social Media Reaction: Get caught up in reading 18 blogs with healthy meal recipes and somehow one about raising chickens and farming crafts.
Personal Action: Put children down for nap
Social Media Reaction: Write a long blog post about how some moms are judgmental and how we should bond as women over the fact that we want what is best for our children, rather than fight about breakfast food. Check comments every 3 minutes to see if someone blasts you. Tweet with your friends about your post.
Personal Action: Wake kids up, snack time and out to the park
Social Media Reaction: Wonder about snack nutrition (this woman really got under your skin) twitpics for the next hour of your kids blurring on the swings and blurring down the slide.
Personal Action: Realize hubby will be home in one hour.
Social Media Reaction: Tweet about how you will be gone because you got nothing done.
Personal Action: Whirlwind of cleaning, cooking, eating, bath times, brushing teeth and bedtime stories
Social Media Reaction: Brainstorm about 40 good blog posts. Tell husband all about mean breakfast nutrition lady (Gals…don’t do this one…he really doesn’t care!)
Personal Action: Spend time with hubby and tell him all about what was going on in the Twitter universe. Shockingly he actually remembers these people by their screen names.
Social Media Reaction: None – it’s hubby time and he will take away your phone if you tweet one. more. dang. time. when. he. is. talking. to. you.
Personal Action: Sit down to write one of those killer blog posts from earlier
Social Media Reaction: Blank on posts. Go back to blog about raising chickens and read until you get sleepy. Tweet that you are going to bed. Wait up another 30 minutes to see if anyone is going to tell you goodnight.
