From the Twitter Newsletter. (Something I didn’t even realize I subscribed to!) CALLING ALL TWITTER MOMS!
The Ultimate List of Moms on Twitter
We’ve noticed a trend of parents twittering the moments of their baby’s birth so we know there are some new moms on Twitter. Are you a mom on Twitter? Is your own mom on Twitter?
I can really, really see the appeal to moms to use Twitter. I mean I find myself using it much more than I ever thought I would. Once upon a time, I ran to All Things Jennifer for the mundane updates on life, now I tend to fit them in spurts of 140 characters throughout the day. So Heck yeah, new Moms? Seasoned Moms? (And Dads too!) I see the appeal.
Oh and by the way, I totally expect to be the person *dictating* someone else to update my Twitter feed/ blog during childbirth. I might be leaning more and more towards the concept as childbirth being natural as possible…which is something that in and of itself terrifies me, who am I? Do I know myself AT ALL? I will not be able to handle the pain! I will not end up wanting to pump at all hours. I certainly will not love washing out the poopy cloth diapers, And I’m certain there will be hours at a time where I will want to plop the little guy in front of the boob tube (and I’m not talking the DD’S.)
I’m far too selfish and totally not ready to be that person! Sometimes I think Mark is terrified at the volume of baby/parenting/pregnancy books that go through my fingertips and right to my brain. But really? All this reading is only doing one thing, solidifying the fact that I am certainly not ready to be a mom. I can’t even get my ass in baby-making-shape and change my pathetic lazy unhealthy habits…
Wait, I was saying something up there…
“I might be leaning towards the concept as childbirth being natural as possible” however…I will be technologically connected as possible as well. I’m gonna have to find a “blogwife” instead of a midwife (or in addition to a midwife I should say, not that I’m sold on that concept completely) A “blog dictation” nurse instead of a night nurse. Oh wait, that’s only for the wealthy…yeah anyhow.
Twitter, it’s where it’s at. The end.
