I don't mean to brag...

Oh, yes I do!

Just when you think your week is really starting to
stink (literally) with smelly fungi sprouting in the yard, Newman losing a package and did I mention that my sink stopped up last night...

Anyhoo.

Just when you're having a no good, rotten, terrible, bad day, you find out that
this poem won First Place in the State Creative Writing Competition.

Oh, yes M'am. Mama has been burnin' up the cell phone with this one.

And the Internet. And the local papers... OK, not the papers.

And did I also mention that I carried this child for 9 months and birthed her after a gazillion hours of labor and an
epidural that wore off?

I did?

OK. I have been known to repeat myself.

It's my blawg and I'll brag if I want to.

;>)

You go, Kid of Melanie! What a neat accomplishment, and how cool to have a Braggin', Bloggin' Mom!

We home school, and I'm seriously doubting right now whether any of mine could write a "Help! I'm kidnapped!" note...

Oh yeah! Pixie DID write an excellent warning and placed it on her door:

WArNINg! Rabid GirlS! Enter and DIE

Yeah. We're doin' fine.

Yaay Melanie's kid! Very cool! Poems about silliness make me happy. :)

Teach that sweetie to spell rum and tonic and I'll adopt her. :)
Not that you'd willingly give her up of course. Congrats on your fabulous child!

Way to go, Melanie's girl!
