In the fall of 2008 I sat at my desk at work feeling pukey and scratched out several ideas for a mommy blog name on a post-it and arrived at this one: Navigating the Mothership. It was a good name, I think.
Does anyone remember this lady?
She is waving goodbye. I am officially calling it a day for this blog. It has been awesome to have this random and really pretty darn strange outlet for all these years and it has meant so much to me. So much. I am removing the remaining bits of the blog soon but I will leave my contact info up on the landing page in case you have any questions or just want to say hi.
How to end this? Simply, I suppose. Thank you for your support and readership and incredibly kind comments and emails over all these years. Truly: thank you.
You know what this space and you readers did for me? You helped me navigate my mothership in a time of pregnancy and babies and toddlers. Sappy and yet quite true. I needed that extra support and this blog – and many of you – gave me that. But now I’m older (and both stupider and wiser) and my babies are no longer babies and this doesn’t feel right anymore. And so I must say goodbye.
