This Is The End

I’ve decided to stop blogging. It’s been a wonderful four years and I appreciate each and every one of you who has made time to stop by and laugh and cry with me.

  • Karen

    Also a UVA grad with a houseful of boys. Your wonderful posts got me through many lonely nights of breastfeeding when morning seemed a long way away…Thank you for bringing us into your family.

  • ksr

    Thank you so much for all the fun. Best wishes for you and your family. Hopefully you’ll check back in at some future. date.

  • Cassie

    Well I’m lagging, what else is new lately. I’ve been having a hard time physically, and I haven’t been here as much. I will miss you Anne, you take care of yourself. Thank your for sharing all the times of laughter and tears. Don’t take the site down without warning, I need to print out some of these for gloomier days.

  • Donna

    Dear Anne, so sorry to read this but you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do. Best wishes to you and your family and I hope that if you ever decide to resume blogging that I will find you again.

  • Michael

    Thank you for all of the entertaining posts over the years – the stories of your family will definitely be missed!

  • Lori

    I’ve enjoyed reading your blog for several years. As so many others have said, we’ll miss you. Best wishes to you and your family!

  • Angel

    Oh Anne, I’m really going to miss your blog. Your explanation of the act of “making googly eyes” has got to be one of the funniest things I have ever read. And your adventures with your boys reminded me to see the humor in things like the “potion” my son created and then spilled on the carpet. I wish the very best for you and your family in the future. (And can I selfishly add…I hope you come back?!!!)

    But you’re a proper blogger, you cant stop! Just this blog or all your writings? I was looking forward to hearing about the boys at camp this summer! Really sad if you do go completely x

  • Janet

    Wow, I am going to miss you. I have lurked for well over a year, maybe two and will miss you and your writing. Wishing your family all the best, and good health to you.


  • Kelly

    You were the first blog I ever read. Then when the article came out in the b’ham news, I said “I know that lady!” That’s weird, isn’t it? And my son lives in Homewood so i told him “if you ever need a lawyer in B’ham I think I can direct you to a good one”. I’m sad that I won’t be able to read your stuff – you were on my favorites in the toolbar, and my family loves the beef balls in red wine sauce! Good luck to you, and if you ever feel like giving us an update down the road I’d be glad to see it!

  • Toni-EvinNRobsMom

    I haven’t commented in a while & I drop by only to read that you’re hanging up your computer. I will truely miss your blog. I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your life with us. You’re an awesome Mom and I wish you nothing but the best Anne. Those four men in your life are very blessed to have you. Take care, Dear. 🙂 I think I’m gonna cry… 🙂

  • Patti

    I’ve read you for at least the past year. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried and I’ve nodded my head. You are raising your boys the way all childen should be raised. With respect, love, understanding, and above all – rules. Kids do not rule the world, they are merely a part of it. By all accounts, you are raising 3 gentlemen who will be assets to their communities, their schools and, in the future, their wives and children. I will miss your humor, your warmth and your love for your family. I hope you will reconsider and someday come back to talk to us again. May God bless you and your family! — Patti (Wilmington, Delaware)

  • Fiona


    Thank you for the time, stories and advice you shared via your blog! I think you guys are great parents and your boys are blessed. I hope you’ll leave your blog up or at least allow us to print out your “The Talk” post to be stored for future reference – it is one of the best I’ve ever encountered!

    God bless you and your family,

  • another "SAHM"

    Soo sad! I will miss the look into the ups and downs of your life. I have enjoyed what you have shared with us. All my best for a great future. Good luck!

  • Holly

    I’ll miss your posts. Thanks for always writing so honestly. I’m newly married and don’t have kids yet, and often when I’d read your posts I’d think, “I hope I’m like that when I’m a parent!”. Perhaps I should print out a few posts now for future reference.

    Good luck with everything in the future. Your back, raising teenagers, worm composting, the mysterious mailbox vandal, finding fun new recipes, everything. I wish you all the best.

  • Katherine

    I’m sorry to see you stop writing – your posts have always been ones I look forward to. It’s hard to find good blogs by parents of teens and preteens – I need those reminders that my kids are mostly being typical teen/pre-teen boys!

    Best of luck to you and your family! I’ll miss you.

  • Sandie

    Now I feel like a big pile of crap. I meant to leave a comment when you wrote a couple posts back about all the health issues you are dealing with. I cried while reading it, but then that pesky thing called life got in the way and I never took the time to let you know how much I appreciate your honesty– regarding you whole dang life! You are a strong, strong woman, AND you aided me in my quest for the perfect bra. I’ll remember you each time I snap that baby on. Well, maybe not, but you know what I mean.

    You will be missed, but not forgotten. Seriously. xoxo

  • Cher

    I’ve enjoyed your blog over the last few years and will miss your take on life here in central Alabama. Best of luck to you from another citizen of the Timy Kingdom. You’re in my prayers.

  • Mary

    Well, I will certainly miss your funny posts! I found your blog a few months ago and I immediately knew you were from Alabama! My husband and I are UA alums living out of state so I liked reading your take on Southern stuff and life! I hope you are able to get well and be as pain free as possible. Take care!

  • andrea

    Anne, I have enjoyed your humor these last four years, especially your escapades with the boys, as I can relate only too well. Thanks for getting me through the “talk” with my sons, letting me know what to expect in Cooperstown, making me go get properly fitted for a bra, and the various other sisterly things you ahve done for me without even knowing. Please, please keep the site up… I will still need to consult. I wish you all the best with your hot new physical therapist.

  • Sara

    Thank you so much for all the posts. In turns, you reaffirmed some of my parenting decisions and inspired me in others. Continued prayers for your well being. I hope you’re suffused with a nice glow, knowing you’ve touched so many like-minded women, because you deserve it.

  • Lizzi

    As one of the first blogs I ever followed, I’ll miss reading about life in the Tiny Kingdom. Thanks so much for your stories! Blessings and best wishes to you and your family…

  • APL

    Noooooo!!! I am going to miss hearing funny stories about your boys!!! You write so hilariously!!! Exclamation points!!!

  • Susan

    Like someone else mentioned, thought maybe your news was a little late for April Fool’s. Your humor has a tendency to catch us off guard. But, you are serious??? Seriously…I am sad..but,that is selfish. You have your reasons, just know that you will be missed so very much. Good health to you & love to your “boys”. Let us know if you decide to return. We will welcome you with open arms. blessings.

  • KHR

    Please reconsider! Your writing is such a gift it should be shared! We will settle for less–but please don’t stop altogether. That being said, I know you have probably thought long and hard about this, so if you must go, I wish you the best. I have enjoyed your humorous posts that so marvelously sum up the joy and frustration that is motherhood. Thank you and God Bless.

  • julie

    I’m so sad that you won’t be blogging anymore… I always look forward to reading about your fun family experiences. Prayers for you and your family.

  • Lesli

    My cousin initially told me about your blog as we all have something in common…Jazzercise! You wrote something which mentioned a routine (Freeze Frame, I believe?), and after reading that entry, I was hooked and was off reading through the archives to catch up.

    I’m sorry that you’re taking a break (thinking optimistically here, just a break, perhaps?), and hope everything works out for you and that you’ll be back even if only for sporadic updates.

    Also, don’t you have a book in the works? What’s going on with that?

    Take care.

  • Shayna

    Nooo! Where am I going to turn to for laughs, recipe recommendations, and parenting advice? I hope everything is OK with you and that eventually, you’ll come back. You’ll be missed terribly!

  • Lurker

    Oh no! I have been a lurker for a while and I will miss your great writing and your fabulous parenting tips. I don’t know you from anything but this blog, however, it seems like you have the strength to beat anything that is thrown your way!

    Take care.

  • Jen

    I miss you already. I’ve stopped by at least 4 times since you posted your farewell- just in case you changed your mind. I do hope that you’re finding peace in your life. I think about you and your pain, and I hope you are hanging in there. Take good care of yourself, Anne. Thank you for all of the laughs, tears, and inspiration over the last 4 years. You’re raising some awesome sons!

  • Rene

    Thank you for all you have shared. I have loved coming to read about your life, especially as a mom..of boys. All the best to you. I hope I run into your writing again.

  • Kate

    Take care of yourself! I will really miss reading new posts on your blog because it’s been so very entertaining!

    Best wishes to you and your family!

  • Kara

    Another lurker here. Yours was one of the first blogs I ever read and has been on my favorites list ever since. I will miss belly laughing over your hilarious parenthood stories! Love your blog because you’re so “real.” Wish all of you in the Tiny Kingdom the very best.

  • Kim

    Hi…I keep coming back, hoping to see a headline something like, “Due to the overwhelming outpouring of Internet love, I have decided to blog again”. No?? Are you sure??? I miss you….but hope all is well with you. Take good care. Kim

  • jean

    Happy Mother’s Day. I’ll keep popping in until you take this down. I’m secretly hoping you’ll come back instead. My worms and I really miss you.
