I Hit 1,000 Views – And other things that have happened to me 1,000 times


I just hit 1,000 views on my little blog!!! I can’t believe it. I’m so thankful that you all have taken the time to read my rants. It has been ridiculously fun writing these posts and extremely therapeutic for my brain. I know some of my favorite blogs probably hit this milestone every day but since I just started a month ago I’m excited and truly can’t thank you all enough.


Because I’m a huge nerd and love tracking performance metrics I’m constantly watching my blog stats. So I can tell you all that you prefer to read about me controlling my urge to not murder my children and that you enjoy hearing about me getting pooped on. So, more of those stories in the future – which shouldn’t be a problem since those types of things happen to me with great regularity.

Hitting that big number made me think about everything else I am thankful for and what other things have happened in my life 1,000 times. Like:

1,000 hugs that I have been blessed enough to get from my kids over the last 10 years.

1,000 times I have thanked God that my husband came into my life at just the right time.

1,000 times I’ve texted pictures to my Mom of everything from my toddler’s first poo in the potty to my 10-year olds first daddy/daughter dance.

1,000 diapers changed over the last several years. Yes, I’m thankful for diapers. A doctor told me once I probably wouldn’t have children and here I am with a bunch of them so I’m thankful I even have dirty diapers to change.

1,000 days since my 10-year old has been sick. Seriously, not even a cold.

1,000 hours that I have been able to be with my kids instead of working since December. I’m SO lucky to be a SAHM. I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

  1. Congrats. It took me several months to hit 1000. I would say that means you’re doing very well, but I’ve learned not use myself as a measuring stick for what’s good. At least you’re doing better than I did. Take that however you want.

  2. And I have 1,000 memories and thoughts of you and the entire Bentzel/Ward families. Yes we are blessed!! Love you, Janet
