One Overly Analytical Mother's Obsessive Musings about Raising Small Children

Who I Am and Why I Write

I am a mother of two young children, ages three and 14 months. I stay with my children during the daytime and teach in the evenings. I have a PhD in English Literature, and am an obsessive reader, mostly of fiction, and love children's literature. I love to cook and bake, and enjoy knitting, especially socks! Writing this blog is part-journal, part-therapy for me. So many days feel so ridiculous and frustrating that I want to cry. You know, when your toddler floods the bathroom and you find water in your bathroom cabinet drawers. Later, I look back and laugh at the absurdity of it all and laugh.  I can't help but wonder if other mothers of young children have similar experiences and feelings.
