I'm Mom Blogger of the Week!

While hanging out enjoying the peace and quiet of naptime this afternoon, I happened to catch the following tweet:


Say what? After my heart slowed back down to a normal pace again, I clicked over there and found myself on About.com, the information source on... everything. Really, if you're looking for guidance on wild birds, game shows, Italian food, ping-pong, scrapbooking or zoology, they have it. And about every other category that you could possibly think of.

My topic? Well, the one that sums up my life in four words:


Every week in the About.com Guide to Stay-At-Home Moms, Apryl Duncan selects a blogger of the week and highlights what she likes about their blog and why readers should visit. Considering you've already seen the title of this post and Apryl's tweet, you know that this week yours truly has the honor of being featured as the lucky blogger.

No, there's no one showing up at my door with balloons and a giant check, but I'm still honored. Everyone likes to be recognized now and then for something that they work so hard on, right? If you'd like to read Apryl's great post, head over and check it out. While you're there, you can also see my profile page and, if you happen to be a member of About.com, leave a review about my blog.

As for me, I'm going to back to whistling a happy tune and marveling at the little things that can bring such excitement to my life.
