This isn't a real post. This is me saying "hey I haven't posted much this week and the competition ends on the 24th." What competition? I am so glad you asked. This one:
You can vote once a day. I am not in first place or even second. But I am in a category with such amazing blogs, I don't consider this a loss. If you could find it in your heart to jump on over to Parents and give me a vote, I would definitely appreciate you helping me finish strong.
I'm not a vote begger. That's why I've simply stuck the badge at the end of posts and hoped that somehow magically the badge would do the ugly work for me. And at the end of the day? I'm still right here doing my thing. Writing, laughing, crying, mothering, ignoring housework....you know, the usual.
That said, the competition ends on Sunday and then I promise you won't have to hear about it any more! (and THANK YOU to those of you who have been voting for me!!!)
Also, while I'm doing a random post, I just wanted to post some pictures of my little boy. Lately I've written a lot about Down syndrome and Addison's special needs, and he has gotten slightly ignored on here. Not because he doesn't still take up a large part of my heart and attention. Promise. It's just one of those things.
But in case any of you are saying "son?" "What son?"
The one who is growing up so fast I think I might wake up tomorrow to discover he used his toy trucks to dig a hole in the floor in his room to make a bigger sandbox for himself.
His words to me this morning when I went to get him up were HI! Potty. Poo poo. Down. CRACKER. Addie. Addie. Addie. ADDIE. Addie. Cereal. To love your sister more than crackers at the age of 18 months is a pretty amazing thing. hehe (-:
Also, my sister and her husband celebrated the arrival of a brand new life yesterday. Emma Paige. It's one of those times that I completely hate living half a country away. Congratulations, Bekka, Eric, and big sister Lauren! She couldn't have chosen a better family to join. We're praying for peace and health to be with you guys during this time of transition.
To sum up this not-a-post post:
2. Carter is cute
3. I'm an auntie again!
It's a good week....and a great time to start a good weekend.
