You guys know that I like celebrating round numbers. I celebrated the 500th post, and the 700th post, and even gave a shout-out to the 900th post — but none of those numbers is as significant as the big one-oh-oh-oh. As of today, there are officially 1000 posts on the blog, and I, for one, can hardly believe it. Somehow all of those placentas, MommyJackings, exploded diapers and enraged helicopter parents add up to a thousand, and it’s kind of amazing. Especially since I just changed the layout of the site. Perfect timing.
With that, I just wanted to say thanks again to everyone who reads the site and I hope you’ll stick around for the many fun things to come in the future. Changing the layout is just the beginning, and in the coming months I look forward many other changes and improvements to the blog’s content and infrastructure. I’ve even got a submission in my files that’s just as bad - if not A LOT WORSE - than Poop Skating that I plan to post when you least expect it. (But try not to think about it. That’s what I do so I can sleep at night. One day, you’ll see what I mean.)
Yay, 1000 posts!!!
PS: If you’re concerned that the blog or parent overshare have any chance of slowing down, here’s an email that I received this morning:
“So my husband and I were walking into a store today and I happened to see a man with his little boy walking over to the other side of the big ice machine (the kind that holds the big bags of ice) in the very front of the store, not far from the front door. I saw the man helping the little boy pull his pants down and thought to myself….surely not! So we walk in the store and go about our business. A few seconds later, the man and boy come back into the store and I hear, “Tell Mommy you went big boy potty!”. He announced this so loudly that I could have heard him had I been on the other side of the store. I just HAD to write and tell you about it. I said to my husband, “Wow…epitome of class.”
