Cant think of a title

I have been wracking my brain the last few weeks trying to figure out what has changed. Why can’t I blog consistently? Looking back over the last 8 years, I blogged about everything!! And I had fun doing it. It wasn’t a chore, I didn’t have to make myself sit down and do it out of guilt. Isn’t that funny? Blogging out of guilt. Have you ever?

Well, I finally have it figured out. The source of the inconsistency. The reason for the sheer torture of sitting down and trying to think of funny things to say about the cute things the kids have done lately. It takes to much time and I have 4 kids. Insightful, I know. But wait, there is more. That’s not the actual root of the problem. The root is actually a person and his name is....Steve Jobs. Yes, yes, that’s right. Steve Jobs is the real reason I don’t enjoy blogging so much any more. May he rest in peace.

He invented the iPhone, y’all. I know, real insightful but, do y’all see where I am going with this yet? 3 years ago I got my first iPhone and found Instagram and then Chatbooks came along and the rest is history (pun intended). It's so much faster to take a pic on my iPhone, open Instagram, do a few adjustments and add a fairly short caption to said pic and then press that share button. And then, after 60 photos are posted, Chatbooks automatically makes a book for me and ships it directly to my house. Hello!!!!!

I don’t know about you but I feel much better after my revelation. I am documenting just as much as I did a few years ago, just in a different way. A much easier way.

All that being said, I have tons of notes in my handy dandy iPhone about Henry and all he’s been up to the last few months and a few things the older kids have said that are just too funny to be forgotten. I am actually going to take the time TODAY and write up a bunch of blogs and set the automatic posting schedule thingamajig to post once or twice a week. Wow!!! Aren’t you all impressed? I know I am.
