As promised, today I’m kicking off the Meet A Blogger mini interview thing. I say “thing” because “series” sounds a little too formal. And we don’t do formal ’round these parts.
In case you’re either new (welcome!) or behind on your blog reading (shame on you!), I talked about the interview thing last week — this will be mostly a just for fun thing where I ask a few questions that may or may not have been inspired by senseless Facebook quizzes. Read, have fun, and share the bloggy love.
First up is SuperMommyOfTwins, whose blog you can find here. She writes about juggling parenting, her marriage, and Bipolar Disorder.
Tell us what got you started blogging.
I met a mom of twins when my babies were about 5 weeks old. I asked if she had any sage advice or words of wisdom. Her response? “Don’t ask me for advice, I don’t remember a thing until they were two and easier to manage.” I’m such a sentimental person and that statement sent shivers up my spine. I felt I had to document and capture this time in my life, particularly because I have Bipolar Disorder and that in and of itself can be disorienting. Add newborn twins plus my sister’s newborn (they lived with me at the time) to a stressful marriage, a 6-year-old with ADHD, and a 5-year old foster niece and chaos and disorder (and desperation) ensued! It was stressful and comical all at the same time. I was mostly manic after the birth of the twins (perhaps with a touch of Hypergraphia) and just had to document it all so I’d never forget. I decided to blog rather than simply journal because I know there are others out there like me who are “Moms of Many” who struggle with mental disorders and I wanted them to see my struggles, my triumphs, and most of all, my testimonies.

On My Breast Behavior, an article regarding the hypocritical society in which we live. It sparked some controversy, even leading to quite the family drama behind the scenes!
