The three and a half hour blog post and a week of blogging milestones

So, my post about trying to make my brother eat dog poop? Took me 3 and a half hours. Not because it took me that long to think of what to write. No - because a certain somebody...

...has been fighting a nap all morning long. She falls asleep, I put her down, she screams, and the cycle repeats repeatedly. Plus, we had breakfast, played, changed 3 poopy diapers (and it's only 10:35 a.m.) and I managed to get a shower - although I'm still in my fluffy pink robe.

So, if you've been wondering why I've been a little absent from my blog (and it's redesign), it's because I've been working a lot, and when I've been home I just haven't had much time to get on the computer. So that's that.

Anyway, this past week I hit some sweet blogging milestones! First, April over at The Life of Me Plus Three bestowed upon me my very first bloggy award. Woo hoo! Thanks April!

And! Hold on to your hats! I won my first blog giveaway! Sassy Stephanie over at Our Piece of Quiet had a giveaway for this book, and I won! Neener, neener. Thank you, Stephanie!

She didn't explain what it was about, but apparently she couldn't put it down, so I'm thrilled to read it for myself and discover what mystery awaits within its pages. I'll let you know what I think after I read it.

Anyway, I gotta go. My screaming child and her hidden tooth #3 are calling for me.

T minus 3 hours until my BFF gets here and we have an afternoon WITHOUT KIDS. And just 30 more minutes until the babe's next dose of Tylenol is due.

Well get ready to get your SECOND blog award because I am giving you in my post tomorrow! I was saving this one to give to you because it is about being honest and you are nothing if not honest! I hope your time without kids is full of fun, laughter and chocolate! Enjoy! After the morning that Little Miss Thing put you through (3 poops before 10:35 am ... cmon little lady...that ain't fair to mama!) you deserve some nice time away!

Poor little peanut. :( I hope her teeth pop through and feel better soon.

Have I mentioned recently how terrified I am of teething? Still not one in sight...

Congrats on the award AND the giveaway! You rock, girlfriend!

Congrats! I have to say I am a little jealous. I still have no awards..sniff sniff or prizes. Maybe your luck will rub off.
