That's right, today is Blog Reader Appreciation Day.
So, what's it to you?
Well, I've been blogging for nearly 5 years and you guys (yes, YOU!) never fail to amaze me with your kindness and generosity expressed toward the ever-growing blogging community of parenting-type units, like me.
Honestly, your kind words have seen me through some of my toughest days...EVUH!

[rubs eyes and reaches for the Midol]
Crazy, isn't it? Someone recently asked me - at the event that shall not be named - what was up with all the mom bloggers and why anyone (like me) would even bother spending so much time on blog(s). I mean, if you're NOT getting paid (like me) or anything.
After careful consideration, I gave my answer in, like, maybe two seconds:
"Um...uh...erm...wait...I KNOW...It's way cheaper than therapy!"
Thanks for listening and - if you're here for the first time, or have EVER left a comment, you have my undying love and appreciation - the check is in the mail.
