I guess all the enthusiasm from Iowa and New Hampshire have translated themselves into the blogosphere. Not only have I been made a finalist in the Best New Medblog of 2007 award contest, but my alter ego – Mindy Roberts of The Mommy Blog has been nominated for the “Hottest Mommy Blogger” in the Blogger’s Choice awards. Please vote for her when you get a chance. You may remember Mindy from my blog posts about her new book called, “Mommy Confidential: Adventures from the Wonderbelly of Motherhood.” Mindy is a fantastic writer with a terrific sense of humor. I’ve posted excerpts here and here. My favorite one is this:
Will is obsessed with size differentials among animals and the relative strengths and weaknesses of each as they relate to other predators. He wants to know exactly how big everything is so that he can determine how many predators it takes to bring down each type of prey. Among the factors are: height, weight, speed, habitat, how far it can jump, whether it can rear up, whether it can swim, and how sharp the teeth are. Usually he wants to know if, say, 20 wolves can take on 10 tigers, but this morning’s question took the cake. “Daddy, can 10 monkeys take down a zebra?”
Many thanks to Cooper and Emily at The Motherhood who have posted a request for folks to vote for my blog in the blog award contest. It’s so great to be loved by MOMs!This post originally appeared on Dr. Val’s blog at RevolutionHealth.com.
