I'm sure you can relate, but people have a tendency to ask me numerous strange questions, online and IRL (in real life for you Internet speak novices!).
So, in an effort to not ignore them any longer, I'm going to answer them, because why not?
If I really want to put my "life" out there in the world and let millions (okay maybe more like hundreds, or possibly a hundred? Maybe?) of people read this
Accept for the name thing. Kinda like being all mysterious about that one, at least as far as the dudes are concerned.
Maybe one day I'll tell. I'll have a guess #1's name contest or something (contest will be closed to family members and friends, of course). But, not yet. For now the number aliases work great.
But, other questions I'm willing to answer.
Even the personal ones I get from IRL strangers, like, "When are you due?".
Despite the fact that this is an extremely embarrassing question to be asked 18 months postpartum when you are as sterile as an operating room table, I generally smile and politely inform them that, "I am not pregnant at all, just a Homer Simpson-esque, beer bellied, fatty. But, thanks for noticing!".
So have a burning question you have to know the answer to?
Leave it in the comments, or shoot me an email (parentingbydummies[at]gmail[dot]com) if you are gonna ask a real doozy and don't want the world to know how sick your mind is (don't worry, I won't tell!).
And, it doesn't have to be about me. You can ask about anything, about the dudes, the Hubby, my "expert" advice on a parenting issue, what shoes you should wear to the prom (oh, too old for prom? I'm still a 17 year old in my mind and sometimes it gets the best of me, like when I watch Twilight repeatedly all weekend), anything, I'm game!
Only off limits question is: When are you due? Because, I'm so over that one, plus I just answered it here, so no more pregnancy questions, kay?!
I'll try to answer all of them next month in my "Ask Me Monday" post. And, don't worry if you don't have any, I already have plenty saved up ones from IRL and online, so I'll share anyway (I always do, don't I?)!
Just in case you are sitting at home thinking, why would I want to ask Dumb Mom a question? Where is Smart Mom when you need her? I've included a photo of the day for you to enjoy instead, so feel free to ignore the above part, while you enjoy another shot of #2 enjoying this place we call home.
Off to do some crunches, or to eat ice cream, because neither one of them will be helpful anyway:)!
