Welcome to The Mommy Blog.
I’m Mindy Roberts.
A little history: I was one of the first mommy bloggers; I launched themommyblog.com in 2002, and wrote millions of words until 2013, when it seemed time to move onto something else. I shifted my focus to books, and on launching a network for women new to the US with some awesome partners.
For ten years, I wrote about our young (and getting older) family, and the first half of that period was published in the book, Mommy Confidential: Adventures from the Wonderbelly of Motherhood.
After my divorce in 2005, it because a little dicier to write about the family. Then when I remarried in 2012, it became flat-out impossible. Not for lack of material—oh, no—but because the kids were getting old enough to care what they or their friends might read online, and because the mother of my stepchildren had strong feelings about my never talking about her children. As it’s impossible to write about half a family while pretending the other half doesn’t exist, it was like chopping off my hands.
So, instead, I wrote a book about divorcing with children. My ex and I pulled it off stupendously, compared to what I’ve seen and heard as the norm. We share custody, see or talk to each other almost every day, and participate even when it’s not “our” time because we don’t want to miss 50% of our childrens’ lives. Between my ex, my husband, and me, we’ve made a lot of reallly BAD and incredibly WISE decisions surrounding our divorces. So we wrote a handbook to ease things for others going through it without a map or a clue. Which is every divorcing parent, frankly. It’s getting five-star reviews, check it out: 42 Rules for Divorcing with Children: Doing It with Dignity & Grace While Raising Happy, Healthy, Well-Adjusted Children.
And so here I am today. There is so much history and mayhem and love in this blog that I can’t just chuck it, so I’m leaving it here as archive.
Many, many thanks to those who have been here all these years; many of you have become like family to me. A stunted, politically incorrect and perfectly damaged family, but those are the most fun, anyway.
