Sadly, I have learned the hard way that our perceptions of people aren’t always as accurate as we believe. That’s ok when you are talking about misjudging a mechanic or an acquaintance that you knew in high school. Sure, these people might do something that surprises you, but it rarely has any real impact on your personal life.

I know I am too trusting. My mom has been telling me for decades that I am too quick to trust, too quick to love. I suppose that was ok when it was just me. But, now that my darling boy is a part of every bit of my life, I can’t be as relaxed about the trusting and loving and sharing our hearts. That’s sad.

I don’t want our precious stories, our way of parenting, and the life that we live to be fodder for a good laugh or nasty conversations, and because of this, I have decided to step away from blogging forever. My brief return was lovely. I loved being a part of a network of other kid bloggers who were dedicated and interesting, and I will continue to read and love those blogs.

I am going to leave the blog up until next week, when I have the mental and emotional energy to take it down properly. This weekend has overwhelmed me from so many directions that I am having a hard time seeing myself in all of this mess.

Love and Light to all of you.

L, K and A

    I am so sorry to hear this and to know that somehow folks have made you feel badly. This is such a shame. I wonder if you have thought of making your blog private and only asking folks you trust to join you. This way, you can share with those you choose to share and keep all your many memories on the blog in place:)

  6. I’m so sorry that apparently someone has made you feel so bad. I don’t know the whole situation, of course, but I respect your decision. I do want you to know though, that there are many people that read your blog and love what you share. You ARE an inspiration. But I’m sure you’ll still inspire people sans blog as well. We’ll miss you! If you come back, we’ll be here for you.

    So sorry to hear you are leaving blogland. I’ve really enjoyed reading about your family and your activities. I hope you do consider having a private blog so you can continue journaling, but understand if even that option is not right for you. Take care

    Oh no…your important voice will be sorely missed in the kid blog world. I’m so, so sorry to hear that you’ve decided to stop blogging. In case you reconsider, please know that there’s a big community of supporters that value your ideas. Big hugs.

  11. Anna says:

    As a mother, I can understand where you are coming from.

    It will be sad to have one less voice like yours on the internet.

    All the best to you and your family.

  12. Jenni says:

    Really gutted. I think your posts are brilliant. So sorry you won’t be around any more cos I liked reading about what you were up to. Hope you and your family will continue to have fun even if we don’t get to hear about it. Jenni, England. Xxx

    Oh Lindsay, I am sad that you will no longer be blogging. I have to say that although my little one is too young yet for many of your activities I love to read about them and look forward to when she is ready for such play. I also love your philosophy and it’s wonderful to read what another feminist has to say and see that parenting can be done in our own way. I only wish I had commented more in the past to let you know the impact your posts were having. Take care xx

  14. Marisa says:

    So sorry that your trust has violated in such a manner. I was always particularly interested in your posts related to feminism and how that translated into your parenting. Your family is lucky to have such a strong mom at the helm.
