A blog carnival, ooh what's this?, and the future poet laureate of Kansas

It's AMB Blog Carnival time again and this month Alison from Melbourne Mumma is hosting.  So hop on over to her site and read all the best posts from September from the members of Aussie Mummy Bloggers!  If your post is featured, you can grab the button on my sidebar and it will link straight to her site.  There are some phenomenal posts this month.  If you like what you read (and you will), please help promote the post by tweeting, stumbling or otherwise sharing.

And while we're talking about things phenomenal, I was pleasantly surprised to find in the post today a package all the way from Perth, Australia from the lovely lady at BM-I Don't Care.  It was filled with candles and buttons and other celebratory goodies.  Thank you my friend.  You brightened up my day.

Finally, forgive me a quick brag.  You may remember this post from six months ago when I came across a poem my young daughter had written and tucked under her pillow.  I was so moved by the maturity and beauty of her words that I submitted the poem to a statewide youth poetry contest.  We found out last week that she won first place.  A spot of sunshine in what has been a difficult chapter of her life.  I couldn't be more proud of you, baby.

  3. how AWESOME is that poem! definitively encourage her to write write write, you know how much it helps to deal with stuff, and if such beautiful words come out of it (and a prize!), even better!
    buy her a nice little book to put her thoughts and poems, or make one with her. tell her to never throw it away or keep it for her.
    she will thank you for it when she is older.

  16. Wow, awesome poem. Makes me wonder about past lives!

    When my daughter was two she used to sing songs before she went to sleep; she'd just make them up as she went. I used to lay with her and just listen and I was always amazed at how creative they were. I wish so badly that I had recorded them now!
