Wry Mummy is two!
And still a complete mystery to most of my family and friends.
“It’s my own website, grandma. You know, on the computer.”
“Your own website?”
“Oh,” baffled nodding and unsure smiling from the dear nonagenarian.
“Is that for your blog, mummy?”
“What IS a blog, mummy?”
Well, indeed. Explaining a blog to a small child or a 90-year old lady is understandably hard, but it’s almost as hard to most people I know and meet.
“What do you do?”
“Nothing at the moment. I mean, apart from being a mum.”
“And I have a blog.”
“It’s like a funny mummy blog. Tries to be funny anyway.”
“Oh, ok. Is that like, your job?”
But does it matter that most people don’t get what I do? I don’t understand what my husband does, and we’ve been together 14 years. If you ask me, he works “in IT”. *eye roll from Mr Wry*
The best way of describing it is that basically, my blog is my baby. Er, except now it’s my toddler.
My first ever post was Kids’ Bedtime – The Last Straw. Two years on, the 7pm-8pm vortex still kills me.
Congrats on the two years! Here’s to many more!

Thanks Kim, and thanks for reading the blog all this time!
Happy Blog Birthday! Mine is also a mystery to most ‘real life’ people and the kids have no idea what I do online apart from ‘using the pooter’. To think, one day your blog baby could be a teenager! x

Thanks Donna! Ha ha, using the “pooter”, I love that. Imagine having a teenage blog! x
Happy blog birthday! I turned 2 a few weeks ago, too – look at our little toddlers! x
Thanks Jocelyn, and a very happy birthday to you too! x
Happy second blog-birthday. More like a gazelle than a human baby, your blog hit the ground running. Always a treat to read, brilliant weaving of funny and moving and profound.
Thanks so much for your lovely words, dearest Hilary. xxx
Happy blogversary lovely, keep up the awesome work! Love your grandma’s take on it, must be truly baffling for that generation xx

Ah, thanks so much, Sarah! You are too kind. Thanks for being such a lovely supporter. xx
My husband’s gran calls it my ‘blob’. ‘She’s working on her blob’.
‘On the blob?’….means something different to our generation right.!
Hope you’ve cowed down a whole gateaux and a bottle of prosecco to celebrate your special day x

Ha ha ha! Your blob – gross! That is so sweet though. Thanks for the birthday wishes. x
A belated happy birthday – and commiserations on entering the ‘terrible twos’. I expect a full-on display of toddler tantrums in the very near future … 🙂
