I Rock! Thankyouverymuch!

Lindsay had a surprise for me the other day on her blog and yes I am just now saying a bloggy thank you! I did email her and thanked her for the award! I never win anything.... ever! So when someone else thinks you rock, it means alot. As mothers or parents in general, we do do things like change poopy pampers, wipe up vomit from a sick kiddo, stay up all night when your little one is teething so bad that he can't sleep, for the recognition. We do it because we have to. I don't know how the battle between the SAHM's, Working Mom's, Single Mom's and the like got started but I do know one thing for sure it needs to stop! If you are a good mother that that should be all that matters. I hear all the time, "Did you find a job yet?" or "Your son is 18months and he's not in Daycare?" I do what works best for our family, just like my cousin Lara who left her job to go to Law School full time (you rock!), JJ, who has been a SAHM and her girl is 3, Chelle who just had her second child(Ethan and daughter Becca) and moved her family to the Hill (you rock!), Tanyetta, my girl from Cali who was putting her thang down while her hubby was in Iraq (you rock!), Tasha who is a single working mom with dream and aspirations( you rock!), Yazzie, who has two girls and does stand up comedy and is funny as hell!(you rock!). Do you see where I am going with this? We need to stick together and unite under the "motherhood umbrella". If you know a mother in your life even if it is your own mother, but let her know what a great job she is doing with her child/children, I guarantee that you'll get a smile and it will mean the world to her! And if you can't then maybe you should call Family Services :)

So thanks again Lindsay!

Cousin Melanie,

Congratulations on your award! You deserve it. My mommy said to tell you thanks for something called "the props" you gave her in your post. I don't know what that means but, I think she's pretty S-U-P-E-R!

Have a great time in Texas!
