oh, hay…

Get it? Hay?

Of course you do. Welcome to my blog. So why write a blog? I decided to do this for three reasons…

1. I have been narrating my life (in my head) for as long as I can remember. I thought it might be fun to actually write some of it down. Hey, at least it is my voice and not Morgan Freeman’s. Because that (and only that) would make it weird.

2. I never completed my children’s baby books. Who am I kidding? I never even started them. With this comes an enormous amount of guilt. When they get older and realize this, they will think their mom was a total slacker. I will tell them to come here to see more pictures of themselves in their underwear than any baby book could offer.

3. I have the worst memory ever. When I can no longer remember, it will be nice to look back. I hope the nursing home has Wi-Fi.


So why “The Wowie?” My niece’s first word was Wowie. She was looking at me when she said it, so I claimed it. Now my family refers to me as Wowie 99% of the time. You can contact me at me@thewowie.com
