The Google Search History of a Mom

I love Google. You can search for anything, at any time. It’s helped me out countless times, and has made me think I’m about to go into cardiac arrest on several other occasions.

Google is not judgmental. You can ask whatever you want, and it will never disclose your identity (if you have it set up correctly). This is an amazing invention.

I have asked Google some pretty crazy things over the last 4 years and 8 months; some personal, some hilarious, and some hilariously personal. I do not believe for a second I’m the only one with a funny search history, but the only way to tell for sure is to share (some of) mine with you.

These are in chronological order from February 2010 when I became pregnant up until October 2011, my son’s first birthday:
