Remember back in May when I mentioned that my blog was in the running to become a nominee for Nickelodeon’s 2010 Parents’ Picks for Best Parenting Blog? And then we all laughed ourselves silly until we hiccuped and fell off our chairs and fractured our collective ass? Because who in their right mind would nominate a blogger who once considered strapping her children to the roof of the Durango to make room for IKEA purchases? A blogger who owns potty fingers and isn’t afraid to use them all over her blog in the form of “for shit’s sake, what the hells” and “dammit dammit dammits?” A blogger whose husband buys $80 chia pets online and then is forced to walk around wearing a titanium jock strap lest his pride and joys be scrambled into a culinary masterpiece of testicle soufflé?
I’ll tell you who. YOU. That’s who.
I have no idea if you guys lost a bet or are just inherently masochistic or maybe your brains simply fell over dead from all the buzzing of the vuvuzelas at the World Cup but in any case, you voted and out of the 50+ blogs in the running, The Creative Junkie is now one of five official nominees of Nickelodeon’s 2010 Parents’ Picks for Best Parenting Blog.
I haven’t been an official anything since 1999 when Nate’s aforementioned pride and joys manned up and my doctor declared me officially knocked up.
Right now, my kids are in the basement and they’re all LET US OUT OF HERE! WE WON’T SAY ANYTHING! WE PROMISE!
Right now, my husband is in a panic and he’s all BUT I GOT THEM ON SALE! DOESN’T THAT COUNT FOR ANYTHING?
I would like to shout THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of you who voted because I’m so very grateful that not only do I have readers, but I have readers who (1) might be hard of hearing; (2) believe in me enough to vote for me; (3) might not have had anything better to do with their time; (4) wanted to vote for someone else and got confused and are punching themselves in the eye right now; and (5) are possibly suffering from missing frontal lobe syndrome.
In any case, if you’re so inclined to exercise your God given right to batshit crazy, you can once again vote for this blog by clicking the image above or the one in my sidebar. Voting is ongoing and you can vote once a day through August 31, 2010! Or until such time as the executive in charge of Parents’ Picks nominations at Nickelodeon gets sober or gets fired. Whichever happens first.
Thank you, readers. And I’m sure if my kids weren’t busy clawing their way through cinder block and Nate wasn’t busy constructing a force shield around his nether regions, they’d thank you as well.
