Bad Mommy Awards

There’s been a flurry of blog awards going around lately, and I’ve been on the receiving end of a few of them, which is, of course, totally flattering. But I noticed there’s no mommy blog awards. No awards aimed specifically at mommies. No awards that recognise the heart and soul we pour into parenting, and that we splatter onto the virtual pages of our blogs. So I decided to create one, and award some of the special mommies that I read.

badmommyawardPretty, aint it? Guess how I made it. You’re going to die. I made it in Microsoft Word. Haha, right? I have no design programmes on the laptop, unfortunately, so I improvised. Anyway.

The award goes to:

LauraKim: for her post on raising a spirited child.

Mad Momma: for her post on the differences between mommies and daddies.

One Bad Mom: for her post detailing the dilemma of how her make up sponge got into her 10 year old son’s room.

The Neurotic Mom: for her post on all the things mommies do before they go to bed. SO true!

A Mother’s Angst: for her post on a care package with a side of guilt. She’s such a mom, she even made ME feel guilty. 😉

You blogging mommies rock my world!

RULES FOR THIS AWARD:

1. Pass it on to 5 other bad mommy bloggers. Bad is the new good, didn’t you know?

2. Link back to the award creator.

3. Tell the recipients of your award just why you’re rewarding their badness!

Quote of The Day

Life is tough enough without having someone kick you from the inside”.  ~Rita Rudner

You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment”.  ~Dave Barry, “Things That It Took Me 50 Years to Learn”

“Somewhere on this globe, every ten seconds, there is a woman giving birth to a child.  She must be found and stopped. ” ~Sam Levenson

“Love and pregnancy and riding on a camel cannot be hid.”  ~Arabic Proverb

“People are giving birth underwater now.  They say it’s less traumatic for the baby because it’s in water. But certainly more traumatic for the other people in the pool.”  ~Elayne Boosler

Congrats, to MommaNats, who has just found out she’s pregnant with her second. Good luck to you, my friend.

PS: I can’t wait until I can say ‘I told you so. you’re crazy for having a second child voluntarily!’

My dear friend SwissTwist bought some stunning little items for The Kid’s birthday.

A ‘If you think I’m cute, you should see my mommy’ onesie:

And a ‘what happens on the playground stays on the playground’ t-shirt:

PS: It was so cool getting a package from abroad for The Kid. You’re a hunny, and I can’t wait until you come back to SA in Jan for a visit!

Good News

My bloggy friend Arkwife is pregnant. 3 weeks in fact. They’re very excited…

Go on over and congratulate her, okay?
