Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Proud to Be in Such Good Company!

Inspired by a couple of my mommy friends, I started blogging less than a year ago. I knew I would enjoy the opportunity to document the girls’ comings and goings in an online format, and that surely has been the case. What I didn’t know to expect was the awesome community of moms (and a handful of dads) that I’d meet.

In just ten short months, I’ve connected with so many amazing people…people who share ideas and information, support each other, and – at least in my case – help keep each other sane in this sometimes-crazy world of kid-raising.

The Multiples and More blog network just announced the nominations for their second annual Blog Awards. I’ve been smiling all day at having been nominated in the Best Writing category! And I’ve been smiling just as big to be in such fantastic company as the other nominees, several of whom I consider friends, and are on my “Must Read” list…

Sadia, of Double the Fun
Christina, of Our Life with Multiples
Missy, of Two Little Monkeys
Quadmama, of Buried in Laundry
Megan, of Twinsomnia
Helene, of I’m Living Proof that God Has a Sense of Humor

If you don’t know these ladies, I’d encourage you to stop by and check them out…my girls and I give them a collective six thumbs up!

And if you’re so inclined, voting on the Multiples and More site is open until December 5th. Win, lose, or draw, and at the risk of sounding like a sappy Academy Award nominee without a speech writer, it’s truly an honor to have been nominated. :)

And thank you for the shout-out!! I didn't even know I had been nominated until I went to vote for another blogger who had been nominated in another category!!!

Oh love it all, twins are the best things ever!! Mine are 9 so i wish blogging was around when they were little angels, they're just so much fun, love them to pieces!! They have such a different relationship to each other, to their big sister & little brother, & us, their parents!! They still need certain periods of the completely alone & quiet, bless them. Love Posie

For sure if there'd been a Best Commenter, you'd win that one hands down.

Thank you for your lovely comment this morning/ last night :)
