The New Wave of Mommy Bloggers

The New Wave of Mommy Bloggers

The first wave of mommy bloggers saw posts about dealing with two year old temper tantrums and how to keep that picky eater from starving to death before they started pre-school. Their blogs were awash with pictures of darling little children in the cutest outfits. Sometimes, they even included these adorable tykes in the midst of being messy and creative, usually with a DIY project mommy wrote up just now. But time moves on, and those adorable little kids are now getting drivers licenses and mommy needs another martini at the end of the day to be prepared for the inevitable phone calls. The iPhone never stops buzzing just because they get old enough to feed themselves.

Mommy Bloggers – The Second Half

So what do today’s mommy bloggers have to contend with, you may ask? Just as we begin to think that our time of carefully monitoring our kids every move is finally on the back burner, life gets more complicated. By that I mean the gadgets we use to keep our lives in synch. The kid that used to be content to be plunked down in front of the television to watch old episodes of Barney is now calling because her Hulu won’t synch with her tablet and OMG she just may have to watch her favorite shows in real time. The horror!

Sinking Back Into Old School Fun

But mommy is no help on that front. Sticking my nose back into my book (yup- the kind with real paper pages, they still make them you know) I let that phone buzz off the table. Kids today don’t need help; they already can link up technology faster than I can figure out how to read the manual. If any kid is calling up before noon they need easy access to my credit card, not my heart and certainly not to my ability to call up the ghost of Martha Stewart’s past. Today’s new wave of mommy bloggers might as well start writing about investment advice, because all those cute DIY dresses we made are long gone. It’s a brave new world fellow mommy bloggers, and it doesn’t always include showing off the latest baby pictures. Well, at least not until the grandkids come up. I’m still waiting.
