So I received a lovely surprise. Last evening I discovered I am a finalist in the Glenisk Irish Parenting Blog Awards 2015. The humble parenting blogger is finally receiving recognition in our own right. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding and when names such as One4All Gift Cards, SEAT Alhambra, Stena Line, Bear Nibbles, mykidstime.com, Birthing Mamas, Blacknight Solutions, SuperHands Baby Sign Language are the many sponsors of the different categories, I think it is fair to say that pudding is pretty damn good!
I am honoured to be amongst such a powerful and talented group of women. We span all of the genres, write about every faucet of parenting; the good, the bad, the downright ugly and sometimes the painful truth.
I have shared many, many thoughts and fears with these parents. Many’s the surreptitious tear that has been wiped from my eye as I read their stories but there have been many, many mouthfuls of tea and sometimes wine, spat at my computer screen in laughter too.
These are funny, funny women; make no mistake. Witty, strong, determined, fearless and of an evening, slightly trolleyed. Or maybe that’s just me!
We are the Irish Parenting Bloggers and we rock!
Thank you all who voted for me.
