It’s true that you can tell a child has a blogger for a mom when their lives are typed out in (sometimes embarrassing) detail. But there are other tell-tale signs that you can pick up, even if you don’t actually know that mom has a blog.
Like when the kids do not understand why both FedEx and UPS drove past the house without stopping(which could also be a sign of a child of a shopaholic, but it’s a blogging thing, too!).
Or when they make mess and mom has to take a pic before cleaning it up because it will make a great blog post.
Or maybe you have a conversation like this:
Hubs(on the the drive home from picking me up at the airport after a blogging conference): Your hair looks really wavy. (his way of saying “Did you do something permanently weird to your hair, because I really don’t like it, but it’s different enough that you’ll probably get cranky if I don’t say something about it.)
Me: I had it curled by V05 yesterday. They were doing hair in one of the suites.
8 year old: Does that mean you have to write about your hair now?
Except that I just did. But not because I felt I had to. But thinking that way is a sign of being a child of a blogger!
How else can you tell that someone is a blogger’s kid?
