Things I Wrote
I am so excited to have a piece at Mamalode, where I’m sharing how the mothers in my life supported me when I became a member of their club. Please CLICK HERE to check it out!
I had a celebrity’s kid in my first grade classroom. CLICK HERE to read about my first brush with fame.
My little blog turned one, and for my blogiversary, I shared some things I’ve learned this year. I received so many wonderful comments, and once again, the kind words brought me to tears. I don’t know I am more weepy than I ever realized, or if writing every day keeps my emotions closer to the surface, but whatever it is, I’m a crier now. My grandpa is, too, so I’m in good company.

In celebration of my first year of blogging, I gave away a $25 Amazon gift card, and copies of I Just Want to Pee Alone and “You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth” to one lucky winner. Thank you to all who participated!
I’m excited to announce that the winner is Ruth from Walk a Mile in My Issues! Congratulations, Ruth!
Things I Loved
Kerry from House TalkN is bringing the dickie back. Do you have any experience with dickies? Not like this, you don’t! CLICK HERE to see the hilarity she and some other funny ladies are whipping up.
I finally made these flour tortillas from Kristy at Seeley Family Blog, and loved them. It’s a fairly simple recipe, and so worth the time. These little suckers were a bazillion times better than store bought tortillas.
My Favorite Tweets
I made the Huffington Post Best Parenting Tweets of the Week, and here are some of the hilarious tweets that were also on the list:
Nothing says you still hold claims to the title ‘Mommy’ like your 12 y/o asking you to pick out her wedgie because her nails are wet.

If I ask you if you have any children and you reply, “Oh, I don’t want children” then you still haven’t answered the question.

I can’t wait until my children discover the difference between a napkin and my pants.

At this point my choices are vacuum the coral reef of crackers out of my car, or put a music box on the roof and declare it a Snack Truck.
