What the Blog is about: Tonya is a thirty-something first time mom. Her son Lucas will be celebrating his first birthday in June! The blog starts with Tonya writing a series of letters directly to her son. But as Tonya continues to write, the blog expands into not only a way to record Lucas' growth and development, but as a way for her to record her own growth as both a mommy and woman. Tonya captures the change from being a childless, married woman that has a busy and active social life to becoming a mom, without losing her sense of self. The transition is beautifully written, and worth the read. Her writing is poignant, sassy, sweet, and very honest.

Does the author respond to comments? Yes. She also visits your blog and leaves comments.

Yay! This is my sister's blog and I absolutely adore her blog! It is really a very honest look at motherhood and such a sweet extra way for me to see into her life and see what my adorable nephew is up to these days.

I love the whole idea about it being a letter to her son, and it's a letter for each day of his life.

I'm so glad you wrote this Natalie. I've been scoping Tonya out since you first mentioned her and I think she's fantastic. Both cracks me up and makes me tear up on the regular.

What a great idea! The letters are so welll written and will be such a great thing for her son to read later on in life.

I started with handwritten letters to my oldest daughter (now 11), but my writing is so terrible that lasted about 2 weeks. I wish I would have thought of it in the blog age. What a fantastic journal you will have of his early days. I jumped over and read your SATC review too. I think I'll go see it now when I had been a little apprehensive prior.

Not only will Lucas treasure your words someday, we all get to appeciate them, too!
