The Purple Ball

Sometimes I dream of having a blog that attracts hundreds of readers, that draws in advertising money, that becomes the conversation piece of other bloggers and moms, that wins awards at blog conferences.

Then I write a post like this one. About a purple ball in our backyard that never gets played with but sits forlornly in a corner until Hubby tosses it in my weedy flowerbed when he mows the lawn.

And I know why my blog will sit forlornly in the corner of the internet, unnoticed except by a few passing readers and of course the grandparents. Because I post about stuff like an old purple ball in our back yard. And it's okay because I'm too tired to travel to blog conferences anyway.


  1. I'm not sure how the purple ball got in the flower bed actually. Kudos to the ball though for not going flat. It's been in the elements for 400+ days now, including several months piled under several feed of snow.

  2. This is exactly why I like your blog. It's real life!
