Reader Emails

I just trimmed some of my emails and deleted some old junk I didn't need. I should say that I trimmed some of the emails in ONE of my FOUR email accounts.

To just under 1,000.

I clearly have issues with email.

The reason I am telling you this is because I have recently gotten a glut, a surge, a passel, if you will, of reader emails that have been languishing away in my inbox. Well, one of my inboxes.

So, if you have written me and you're wondering, "Why hasn't that snooty Smockity bothered to write me back?!" just know that you probably aren't the only one wondering that. I read each email and I still have yours staring at me each time I open my inbox, mocking me for my procrastinating ways.

(*That is excepting those emails that have some variation of the words "you" and "are" and "pathetic" in them. I have deleted those while cackling wildly and humming "How Do You Like Me Now?".)

You will be glad to know, though, that I have made a "reader email" folder to put them all in so I can sort through them, and I have high hopes of making some into posts and actually answering the rest.

So, take heart, dear readers! I haven't forgotten you!

Thank you to all who have written. Well, most of you. (*See note above.) I'll be getting back to you soon!

  1. So if I say “you are not pathetic” will I get deleted? :) Just kidding- I think you’re wonderful, funny, and find it refreshing how real you are. It’s nice for moms that aren’t as far along as you are to know that failing is okay, as long as we keep on trucking :).

  2. I wanted to say as a mom of 6 people have called me names. I am obessive when it comes to email and such. I clean mine out daily unless I’m on somewhere I can not check it. I h ave found if I check it on my computer first. I also get email on phone and other electronic devices. My kids love to delete it and it teaches them how to do that. I check my email through out the day if possible. But I have not written you but know if i ever do; I won’t be upset if I don’t get a reply. I love your site and keep it coming we hold it against you.

  3. Now I have that song in my head…

    But that’s okay, it’s awesome.

  4. I think you are great! You make me laugh on a regular basis…and I won’t even email you as to make you feel guilty for not emailing back! lol

  5. After a few days vacation, my e-mails were at 550 and I don’t even work!
    My 8 yr old and I having a baking date first thing in the morning :)

  6. I hope you don’t mind me saying this, but some of the only words I can think of to describe you are “cute as a button”, and “adorable”, and things like that! Why ANYONE would send a not-so-nice email to you, I don’t know! You are so funny, so cute, and delightful!
    This isn’t meant to be a gushing email to get a response, I just think your videos and wording is really cute, and enjoy your posts!
    Have a great day!

  7. I’ve seen some bloggers catch some flack before, but seriously, people have actually written you to tell you that you’re pathetic?! That’s pathetic.

    I think your adorable, not that my opinion counts for anything in the grand scheme of life, but there ya have it.

    (PS- I rarely get the time to respond to readers’ e-mails, and I’m sure I get far fewer than you do, so don’t feel too guilty…)


  1. […] 4 Moms are answering reader questions. I dug around in my inbox and found several that have been languishing away waiting for a response.  I responded to these right off the bat, as soon as I got them, all timely like in my head, but […]
