Remember when you were in high school and you checked out the cast list of the school play and it turned out that your friend, who was standing right next to you, who you helped recite lines with, who talked about nothing else but the lead part since she heard that the school was doing that play last school year, actually got that part. You grab each other, screaming, jumping together, screaming, screaming. Um, you don’t? Maybe it was just me. But I just had another moment like that. Sunday I just found out that one of my favorite bloggers was nominated for best Australian Blogger for the 2010 Bloggies. Not Drowning, Mothering.
The Not Drowning Mother is an awesome blogger, writing about her days taking care of her three children in the middle of suburbia. If that doesn’t just make you flip over and check her out and then vote for her, then let me explain. What other mom do you know is willing to post her dirtiest secrets of uncleanliness and godlessness? What other mom do you know will willing watch five children under six AND take them on an outing? What other mom do you know posts pictures of her old maternity bras? What other mom do you know has a mother’s group that brings booze? What other mom do you know in Australia?
Still not convinced? Check out some of my favorite posts:
The Sharks v. The Jets When only one kindergarten class gets milk and the other gets a huge box of Lost Property, these moms are going to rumble, music theatre style.
The Snip Snipe Honestly men are the biggest babies when it comes to getting sniped, but how often do women call them on it?
The Long Journey Home If only I could be this cool and funny after the road trip from Hell.
