Not a Mommy Blog, but I am a Mom.

There won’t be anything particularly insightful or exciting on this weblog.  I had a locally popular neighborhood site when I lived in the “bloggiest” borough, but I don’t have the energy to keep that up.  And where I live now doesn’t have the same access to building violations, interesting street food, kooky neighbors, and car service antics as my previous neighborhood did. I am learning, though, that there are most of these things going on. It’s just harder to see and hear them without a shared wall and from a car.

That said, I’ve been feeling like there’s so much going on and so many voices blabbing away that I just want to jump onto the bandwagon and dance to Nena’s “99 Luftbalons” along with everyone else.

*Since so many have asked:  Mutterschwester is the German translation of my favorite character in Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” – Mother Sister.  Although, as some have speculated, you can take it as related to muttering about various subjects if you want.

    Hi. I’m enjoying your blog! I happened upon your page through the magic of Google (enter “Montclair” and “graphic novel” and up pops your site). I was hoping to learn more about the brief reference you made to a Montclair resident who has a graphic novel in the works. I write about comic book/graphic creators across northern New Jersey for a newspaper and would love to find out more. Most papers do not cover comic books. Frankly, they rarely have anyone on staff who knows anything about them. So I am on a min-crusade to get the word out about these talented men and women who create them.

    Lovely to meet you, and I want to know more about who this very kind, encouraging woman is.

    It’s a pleasure, and thank you for all your kindness to me, my posts, and my tweets.
    Really.

  6. I just love your title of “Not a Mommy Blog, but I am a Mom.” That captures it all. Looking forward to reading more.

    • Thanks! I am one of those who doesn’t actually mind the Mommy Blogger title (Shock! Horror!), because I don’t mind being called Mommy. :) However, the blog is not about my kids exclusively, and in fact started as a neighborhood therapy blog. Thanks for mentioning it!
