An Award and Paranoid Parenting
So, I have now officially been blogging for a year and I have seen other bloggers get little awards on their blogs, but never really understood what they meant or where they came from. But, now it's my turn! I was so excited to see that I had been given the "You Make The World A Better Place" Award by M at the Contents of My Heart. Thanks so much, M! I was very surprised. The cool thing about M is that she lives just one town over from me and is expecting a referral for a Kyrgyz princess very soon! AP will have a friend very close to her with so much in common. I can't wait for that referral.
So, having received the award, I am to pass it on to 5 others that make the world a better place. There are so many blogs I read that are so much more deserving than me, but alas there are only 5 to pass along, so here goes:
Holly at Kyrgyz Adoption Story
Shea at Tapsalteerie Farms
Lori at Picking Up the Pieces
and My Sister at My Little Bliss
On to the paranoid parenting part of the post. This is where I slept last night.
Yes, in the floor right next to the scary giant Dora. I slept there b/c my friend called late in the evening last night to let us know that her daughter (AP's friend) was throwing up everywhere. AP had literally spent the entire day Sunday with her. So, I was so afraid that AP would get sick and I wouldn't hear it or I would hear it on the monitor and she would choke before I got there. She was so comfy in her bed already that I just decided to camp out on her floor all night. Thankfully, we both slept well and AP didn't get sick!
