Award and Tag

Angela, over at Mom's Fortress of Solitude, has gifted me with the Humane Award. Thanks, Angela!

"The Humane Award honors certain bloggers that I feel are kindhearted individuals. They regularly take part in my blog and always leave the sweetest comments. If it wasn’t for them, my site would just be an ordinary blog.
Their blogs are also amazing and are tastefully done on a daily basis. I thank them and look forward to our growing friendships through the blog world.

Link back to the person who gifted you with the award and share the love with other bloggers.”

Gotta Love Mom

How to Survive Life in the Suburbs

Of Mice and RaMen

JAM's Own Reality

Ah thanks so much! I will work on geting this little beauty up soon!

I love your answers to these. We live worlds apart and have so much in common. For one...I never taught baby sign language but did use it with both of my girls. Loved that they could communicate their needs with me before they could talk.
