Do You Know What Today Is????

According to Sheryl, today is De-Lurking Day! A special day celebrating lurkers, and exhorting you to muster the strength and bravery to click on that comment button and end the deafening silence.

Today you must delurk and comment on every blog that you visit, or as Mir said, bad luck will befall you and your children, and your children's children. You don't want to be responsible for that now do you?

Seriously, I do wonder who all of you are. I get a handful of comments each day, mostly from people I "know", but who are the other 150 people? Who are you???

Just leave a comment and say anything... as long as it's nice ;-)
And leave a link to your blog, if you have one, so I can visit you too and lurk at your blog.

Then go forth and comment everywhere... spread the love.

I just started reading your blog a couple of weeks ago. I'm enjoying it and your family is beautiful.

Hi! I've been visiting your site for several months now. Your kids are absolutely beautiful! The fact that you live in a 100 year old house appeals to me; I love older homes and I've enjoyed the pictures of your renovations. Congratulations on your new baby, those Santa pictures were just too precious!

You seem like an excellent mother and I wish you health and happiness for you and your entire family in 2005!

Man, I am de-lurking all over the place! It makes me feel like some kind of dirty stalker.

I'm afraid I'm running out of interesting comments to leave. So I will just say that I enjoy your blog.

Hi! Even though I only have one kid (so far) I read your blog because it is good to know I am not the only sarcastic, tired mom around. I love the stories you post about your kids.

I really enjoy your blog.....found it through Rachel (gaggle of girls) who I regularly read. Love reading about life with a big family (I'm a big family mom wanna-be but we stopped at 3 so I live vicariously....). I'm a transplanted New Englander living in the Midwest now so I loved the pix you posted of the trees in the fall. Congrats on the new babe, BTW.....what a cutie!

I've been lurking for a couple months now, following a link from a comment on Rachel's blog. I love hearing about your family.

Blogger Rachel said...

well, i'm here. :) and i'm still kicking myself for never meeting you when we lived closer to you.

but then you knew that, and the 2 people who commented above me came here from a link on my blog.

I certainly don't want to risk bad luck.

Ok, delurking, and just so you know, I am probably at least 15 of your hits a day, because I check in that many times a day to see if you've updated or put up pictures :-) I'm horribly nosey and I love you and your family and you don't come to chat enough! LOL Now you know I am a sad pathetic loser with no life who likes to stalk people ROFL. Hey, I have to get away from my own testosterone-laden house somehow, don't I? LOL

I originally followed a link from someone's blog (don't remember who) and the post that day happened to be the conversation with the one year old wanting a banana. It cracked me up, and I've been reading since. I find myself envious of your big family - even though I never really wanted a super big family, I always wanted more than the two I have. (Grateful for them, though!!!!!) So, like another reader said, it is fun to catch a glimpse into your life. You have a great writing style and manage to capture the humor in what might normally be all the ordinary experiences of everyday life.

You already know who I am!

Regarding unpopular meals, I have a "strict" policy that if you can't say anything nice about dinner then say nothing at all, or risk being asked to leave the table. Being a softie, I usually only remind them of the policy instead of enforcing it. LOL Just remember, with TOK you'll never please all of them! Also, my favorite children's book is "The Seven Silly Eaters" about this very topic, with darling illustrations.

Just saying I'm here and reading and enjoying you as always.

I am a part-time lurker here! I *think* I have commented before. I really do enjoy reading about your life. It makes me tired and makes me wish for a dozen children to go with the one I have!

I enjoy reading your funny take on your big family and house. Hope all is well with your newest little blessing.

I've posted once before. Have no idea how I found your blog, but it's on my regular rotation of morning reading. I often read it out loud to my husband and we just get the giggle all the time from your kids.

I'll delurk! I love your blog! I found you through some other blogs I read. We have five kids, ages 19 months to 10 years. We live in Virginia. Thanks so much for writing your blog, it's wonderful!

HI CHRIS!!! Thought I'd pop in and leave a comment...even if it's a day late.

I don't remember how I first was linked to your blog - but your writing and story has had me coming back! (I love the idea of living in an older house with kids of my own someday!)

thanks for sharing your story!

Delurking day is long gone but today I have time to say hi. I discovered your blog.....I don't remember how, but I liked it well enough to add you to my blogroll. Come on by and see how I'm surviving with 6 kids. (I bet you can imagine!)

Hi! I don't think I'm a lurker, as I've commented before, but it seems so appropriate now that I've read this posting.

I read your log because you make laugh and nod in appreciation. I think you are very lucky to have so many kids. We're stopping at 3...*sigh*. But even with many more kids, the scenes in our homes are so often the same.

It's always good to know that I'm not the only mother who feels that owning a "Yak Bak" would make my life easier. I would tape myself saying, "Clear your dishes and wash them!" or "Brush your teeth!" or "Stay out of your brother's personal space!" to save 10 years of my voice box. It's not the daily repetition that can drive you nuts on the odd day, it's that those days have turned into a decade plus!

Keep up the great blog!

I have been lurking here on a regular basis and I love your blog. How you have that many kids and still keep a sense of humour is beyond me, I have one and I feel like all I do all day is yell.
Anyway, happy belated de-lurking day! ~song

This is the first day I have read your blog....I am new to the blog world.....and I haven't laughed this hard in quite some time. Thanks for sharing your life with us.....and helping me to laugh at the same things my kids do. :)

I have been slowly working my way through your archives. You are hilarious! And as far as I am concerned, you ARE supermom. How do you do it all? You must delegate like mad! I am inspired to do better in my role as a mom, to be more spontaneous, and have more fun. Keep up the good work. I really enjoy your writing style.
