The "Dailies"

This isn't much in the way of substance but it's something... and it's serving it's purpose nicely to deter me from doing what I really ought to be doing - homework.

I'm still fairly new to blogging and have only considered this blog a "Mommy Blog" because I'm a mother and a teacher of young children and the snotbots are the source of most of the crazy and funny shit that happens in my life. A fellow blogger, newly dear to my heart at A Mother's Musings, Mishaps and Milestones started talking about the trend of daily blog themes and that started me thinking about how my blog does and doesn't fit into this category of Mommy Blogs. I sort of already knew that I wasn't your typical mommy blogger because I know that I don't fit the mold of the "Mommies" that I know outside of cyber space. I would rather my kids NOT eat dirt and lick stuff on the playground, but I'm not going to spill my Diet Coke leaping up to spray, wipe or slather them with anti-bacterial products, either. Seriously, ladies... ringworm isn't forever. I don't think...

So in the spirit of irreverence in which this blog was born, let me offer my ideas to this daily blog post craze *rolling up sleeves*...

Here's what would grab MY attention:
  • Margarita Mondays - post your favorite recipe (the ONLY recipe allowed at The Circus) and your best tequila story. If your story involves donkeys or ball gags, feel free to preface your post with "This actually happened to a friend of mine..."
  • Tough Shit Tuesday - list all the things you denied your children this week that they were sure they had to have or do. My entry this week would be this ridiculousness: Mighty Beanz
  • Fuck My Life Friday - post your gripes about whatever's got your undies knotted...
It's not cute and probably won't sell much ad space, except possibly from the fine folks (wink, wink...) who bring us Jose Cuervo, but it's honest and it would make me laugh. BTW - much thanks to the kind and thoughtful people at Cuervo for making pre-made margaritas for those of us who have only enough time to crush the Xanax that we use to "salt" the rim. Cheers!
