Give Me 5 Minutes and I'll Give You My Girls
Alrighty people, sorry for the hold-up this morning. Here we go with the big news!
The wonderful ladies of 5MinutesforMom.com have developed a new sister site called 5MinutesforParenting.com -- a spin-off of a smash-hit blog, if you will. And one that'll hopefully go the way of Frasier and not, say, Joey. Because Matt LeBlanc's cuter than a duck on a junebug, but cry mercy with me -- that show was a cuh-rushin' dee-zaster.
And guess what, y'all? Guess who they asked to write a weekly post for them, every Monday?
(For whatever reason, although clearly when you see the list of the other writers for this blog you're going to recognize as quickly as I did that I'm truly not fit to take out the garbage for any of the amazing ladies I'll be posting alongside, and you'll laugh and think to yourselves, again just as I did, Well now hmmmmmmm... mebbe they meant to ask some other Megan? Surely this is a mistake. And scratch your head in puzzlement.)
(Which may explain the stops-just-short-of-paralyzing fear and doubt I've been enveloped in this week as I've tried to write my first post for the site. OHMYGRANNY.)
(But now I've given away the answer to the original riddle, darn it.)
Yeah, good guess! Your own little old FriedOkra girl. YEEKS!
Writin' about parenting.
Which should make for some funny bloggin' times seein' as how I'm going to have quite a bit of parenting goin' on here shortly, perhaps more than a woman of my particklar skill level should be allowed to perpetrate on her own, and I think we can all review past Meganish history and recognize that things at FriedOkra Manor will be heatin' up with heapin' helpings of humor and the chaos and sighing and lamenting and wiping up all sorts of infant-excreted bodily fluids off all sorts of not-previously-exposed-to-infant-excreted-bodily-fluid surfaces.
And we certainly wouldn't want to just keep all that stuff to ourselves, now would we? No ma'am, I didn't think so.
The more I think about it, the more I'm startin to think maybe they'll have me in my own special category on the new blog, like the Don't Let This Happen to You category, or the How NOT to Parent category.
It stands to reason.
Anyway I guess we'll all just have to subscribe to 5MinutesforParenting.com and hop over daily to find out, now won't we? Oh, yes! Let's do!
I'll see y'all there.
And y'all subscribe to FriedOkra's feed right here.
