I love your blogs too.

Thank you Maddy!
Maddy from Whitterer on Autism has graciously bestowed unto me this award:

I find this totally ironic, since Maddy's blog is the first blog I visit on a daily basis.

If they made an “I heart Maddy” bumper sticker, I would sport one proudly on my car.

The rules of the award are:

1. The winner can put the logo on their blog.

2. Link the person you received your award from.

3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.

4. Put links of those blogs on yours.

5. Leave a message on the blogs of those you’ve nominated.

Okay- seven blogs that I lurv.
This is so difficult because there are so many that I love for different reasons. I’m trying to steer clear of naming blogs that I just named for these awards, but if you are mentioned again…deal.

Here we go:

*disclaimer- this is not an all inclusive list, as there are many other blogs that I enjoy immensely*

Ashley’s Mom at Pipecleaner Dreams – Truthfully blogging about some pretty significant topics, like gulp teenagers! Debra is really an inspiration. She loves, loves, loves her kids, and has that fierce Momma Bear that we all can relate to.

K.C.’s Mom at Autism Schmatism – A big hearted blog that will make you laugh and cry. Possibly in the same post. K.C.’s mom is very real and down to earth. As comforting as a big bowl of matzoh ball soup.

Maize at Maizie’s blog (private) – Maizie is an awesome writer, and gives me insight as to what parenting ideas to try with my son, whether she means to or not.

Niksmom at Maternal Instincts – Ohmigosh, this is another blog that will leave you sobbing and laughing at the same time. Niksmom is a wonderful writer, who often is able to write what I cannot. We share many of the same fears for our children.

Mom2spiritedboy at Spirited Blessings- Writing about true life as she lives it. I love reading about her adventures- Stop by, you'll be hooked too.

MOM-NOS at MOM - Not Otherwise Specified – I. Love. This. Blog. MOM-NOS was the very first blog I ever came across. I couldn’t believe that there was another mom with a son almost exactly like Jaysen! I spent hours reading through the archives, in total disbelief that my son had a twin (only a couple years older), and was hooked ever since.

Casdok at Mother of Shrek – Yet another blog that I just adore. Casdok is the Battle-Mom when it comes to her son. She’s gonna do big things for Autism one day. Another blog that is overflowing with information.

There. Seven. On the nose.
As far as leaving comments on your blogs notifying you of this incredibly high honor?
Maybe in the morning?- it's past my bedtime.

Now excuse me while I go eat some ice cream.
I mean go to bed.

Wow, all excellent choices although there is one that I'm not familiar with so I'll pop along there now and give her poke to come on over and collect her award at the same time.

Thank you so much for the award! Yours is one of the first blogs I check each day!

Oh my! You love me, you really love me! Thanks! I check you blog everyday too (ok, sometimes many times a day, I'm hooked!). This is my first blogger award! I will display it proudly. But who will I pass it on to? Most of the blogs I visit I discovered on your faves list!

Congrats on your recent awards!! Isn't it fun? :)

I have to ask: where did you get the avatar for your profile? I LOVE it!

I think I just googled "Lenore" and found it. It was either that or "Roman Dirge" (her creator). I love Roman Dirge. And Lenore. And Hello Kitty. And anything having to do with the Nightmare Before Christmas...

Gotta lotta faves. :)
