It’s been a while.  I know.

It’s not that my kids haven’t been hilarious, because goodness, they certainly have.  I just sort of lost my mojo.

Well, here I am feeling my mojo coming back.  I’m remembering conversations with The Boy and The Girl with which to regale you. I sit down to write, and POW, BANG, BOOM, NOTHING.  (Please tell me somebody else launched into a verse of “Do You Want Me” by Salt-n-Pepa.  I don’t want to be alone in my random forays into song lyrics.)

I can’t remember one thing my children have said.  Not one.  Which is sad.

I don’t take a lot of pictures, and when I do, they’re typically of things, not of people.  I don’t keep scrapbooks filled with programs from awards ceremonies and playbills.  I don’t video gymnastics meets and school programs.

What I do is write.  And if I stop doing that, when my kids are grown they will never know how funny and lively and witty they were as children.  Worse, they won’t know that I appreciated and honored their individuality.

So come on, Mojo.  Mama needs to write.


  1. I know the feeling. It may not seem like it since I’ve posted something nearly every day this week, but I do. I go through these waves where there’s just nothing. I don’t know if I’m tired or stressed or what. I just know it’s not there. Usually if I relax, it gets better. I hope you get it back soon. I know it drives me crazy when I know there was something great to write about and I either can’t remember it or can’t tell it! This was a good start though. Well told. 🙂

  2. Roshaunda,
    You’ll get your mojo back–I just know it. My mojo is MIA, and I’ve had this verse on my mind lately: “He leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.” Sometimes you just need a restoration break, ya know?
