It's an Honor Just to Be Nominated

My wonderful friend Mindi has nominated me for a Parents magazine blog award for Best Special Needs Blog!

Mindi is sister to the famous and beloved Lauren, and their entire family have been supportive of this blog from the very beginning when not even my own family was bothering to read it.  Thanks so much Mindi and the entire, extended clan!

I haven't won anything since a 2nd grade spelling bee in which the prize was a mini-statue of the Virgin Mary, so I'm not holding out much hope.  But if you are so inclined, you can click on the button below and register your vote:



They make you log in or register for the site in order to vote, and I found it to be a little buggy to do so.  I haven't figured out what the secret is...if you already have a user ID at Parents, you may have to change your password or log in first or log off and come back in or consult the Rosetta Stone or sell your first born to the gypsies or rescue the Ark of the Covenant from Nazis...but c'mon after all I've done for you?  It's really the least you could do.  Besides, I heard that reaching Level 4 security clearance will unlock a pretty pink Easter egg...

  2. WHAAAAAAAT! After the shock of them asking if I was trying to conceive...wait, what? right now? um, no! Then it told me the page was gone after I jumped through all of their hoops.I tried...I really did!

  3. Yay! Good for you. I'd say, if you haven't won anything since 2nd grade, it's been a long time coming. :)

  4. Alright, I voted. You owe me, like a moo-moo or something. Just kidding, you deserve it:)

  5. Um... I think I registered and then I THINK I voted? The little "voted" oval turned from hot pink to muted grey? Buggy indeed!
    Meh, I guess you are worth it.

  8. Hi Lynn: I tried to vote for you, but when I tried to register I got an error. I don't think they like us Aussies very much...

  9. @Lauren: Yes!
    @Alain: Sometimes if you go back in later it works for some reason. Thanks anyway for trying!

  11. I don't know you, but I'm also a mom of a son with Autism. I hope you WIN! Best of luck! Also going to follow you & "like" your fb page. Us mom's have to stick together... especially when dealing with the ever mysterious Autism diagnosis & child. Best wishes!

  12. Also wanted to let you know I added you to one of my pages called "New Blog Roll" so that I can keep reading your blog. I have connected with a lot of heart mommies because my other son was born with several life threatening congenital heart defects, but I have yet to take the leap into the Autism community... So you're my jumping off place! Take care!
