Mommy Wants Vodka

…Or A Mail-Order Bride

Mommy Wants A Mushroom Print


This isn’t the first blog post I’ve ever written. Actually, it’s probably closer to the 1,00oth, but since I have a habit of checking the first post anyone’s written to see what the first thing they had to say was, I figured that maybe someone else was, too.

So this is it. My first inaugural post here on Mommy Wants Vodka. Backdated here to where it all began, in 2004.

In 2004, I had just met The Daver, who was still my boyfriend and we were juuuust on the cusp of getting engaged which is really a story I should tell you sometime. Not because it’s a very good one, but because it’s worth telling.

I had a son, Ben, who was three and no other children, but I had, as you’ll see by my second post here, a very turbulent relationship with my ex.

It’s strange to look back and see how far I’ve come and where I was and I can only imagine where I’m going.

So hello world, Mommy Wants Vodka. Because Mommy Wants Vicodin sounded too suburban.

Welcome. I hope you’ll stick around.

    I love that you came back and paid attention to your “first post”, I am currently happy in the pants which is awkward when you’re sitting in a cube next to the angriest woman you’ve ever met praying to every god you can think of for 5 o’clock to roll around so you can deal with Chicago rush-hour and get home to drink(whew!).

    I’ve read a couple posts and decided, “Shit, this woman makes me smile with teeth, I’ll read them all!”

    (also I’m new at the whole blog thing and that’s why I’m rambling, not that you’ll actually read this but if you do read to here I apologize)

    Checking out your blog from the blogoversary link up. It is great to see where people started and how their blog came to life. As a new blogger, it gives me hope and the reassurance that everyone starts somewhere.

    Hi Aunt Becky, lurker here and recent newbie poster. I’ve so enjoyed the more current posts since I began following that I had to backtrack to the beginning. It’ll take me some time but I hope to read through ALL of your posts eventually. Do I get a cookie? : )
