I am tucked into our bedroom, with Kevin and Aodhan's laughter keeping me company from the other room. This soundtrack to my writing underlines my need to shift blogging gears. I admit that the minutes I steal, when Aodhan has fallen asleep next to me in our family bed, are spent reading blogs about Attachment Parenting, Extended Breastfeeding and how to be a Crunchier Mommy. It isn't that I don't terribly miss Jessy's great bread recipes or reading about Liz's Montreal vegan adventures. I do, I do. It is just that there are only so many compartments in this mama's head and only so many seconds (yes, seconds, not minutes or hours) that I can borrow from Aodhan's needs to satisfy my reading pleasure.
I am ready to move on. I am ready to join the lactating sister wonderland and start writing about my own experiences as a full-on attached gentle mama, and the politics that I see whizing all around parenting.
I will miss blogging as a VeganCowGirl, but I plan to let a sparkle of her live on as I share the odd recipe on my new blog, where I will write about everything from how to get poop out of your cloth diapers to what it feels like to nurse through having a milk blister on the end of your nipple (for the fifth friggin' time).
I love the readers of VCG. You have been awesome and supported me through losing my family dog, finding out (with shock and some horror) about Aodhan. You have been great! And, of course, when I have time I will be reading and trying all of your recipes. This has been a great circle of writers and cooks to be a part of.
If you are interested in reading my new blog just drop me an email and I will be happy to share my new link.
Be well and veganny!
