So you wanna be a statistic?

Hello there, interwebs. I've missed you. If you are an avid Mean Mom reader (which pretty means you are one of a small handful of friends or family), you may have noticed that there are no longer any pictures of my offspring here. I reached a very tough decision. Very tough. I mean, I am mother to the two most adorably precious kids on earth, and my very reason for being is to show them off, right? No? Oh. Hmm. Maybe it's time to rethink this parenting thing. Hmm.

I digress.

Anyway, my mom (hi mom!) and one of my aunts (hi Nancy!) apparently conspired to make me feel horrible about endangering my poor children by putting their precious images on the web. I balked. I resisted. I called them old (only in my mind). I thought they were out of touch. And you know, maybe they are, maybe they aren't. But they said enough that I felt guilty about having the photos up here. I mean, I kinda think nothing would come of me posting a few innocent pics of the kids. But then there was that WHAT IF question, that kept lingering. I mean, I suppose there is a teeny, tiny, miniscule chance that some stalker could track me down by my IP address and then find me. I don't know if that is really feasible, but if it is, I guess I don't want to be that parent who was aware of the dangers and went through with it anyway. Argh. The modern world with all its privacy. Hmph.

So, for now, no more pics of the kids. I know, I know. You are SO upset by this. I can tell. But I do promise to share lots of funny stories, and I will, on occassion, grace you with a photo of a celebrity. Or perhaps my dog:

So, I will do some more research and revisit the issue of privacy & my kids on this blog. I think the dog will be safe. Let's hope.
