This post is long overdue. A huge thank you to Oster’s Mom from discover and devour for giving me “Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award.” Given the name of the award, I simply had to find out more about it.
Apparently, it has to do with a woman of the same name, known for being very elegant and having high expectations, who is committed to maintaining integrity, good manners and behavior, as well as a rich sense of humor. So there you have it.
The rules for this award are that you must answer the following ten questions and nominate ten blogs that you think deserve the award.
1. Describe yourself in seven words.
Tired, patient, compassionate, loyal, determined, (a bit of an) introvert and worrier.
2. What keeps you up at night?
Technically, nothing because I am just too tired. Literally, Livi, who wakes up twice at night. Figuratively, worry about what an impact my daily decisions have on Livi’s life and her development.
3. Whom would you like to be?
Honestly, I couldn’t name just one person I would like to be. But there are many whom I admire greatly.
4. What are you wearing now?
A T-shirt and jeans.
5. What scares you?
The news, the state of our environment, the quality of our food and our air.
6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?
The best: the interaction with other bloggers and readers
The worst: not having enough time to actually write and interact
7. What was the last website you looked at?
8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
I wish I was less of a worrier and more of an optimist.
9. Slankets, yes or no?
10. Tell us something about the person who nominated you.
Where to begin? Oster’s Mom is one of the bloggers I met right away when I started my own blog. And ever since she has been immensely supportive in her comments and suggestions. I follow her blog regularly because I truly enjoy her posts. Her book reviews will give you great ideas, she shares solutions for typical baby and (now) toddler issues, and fun anecdotes about her life with her young son. You should definitely take a look if you haven’t done so already.

As always, I passed on this award to bloggers I admire and blogs I enjoy reading. If you do not care for this kind of award, please don’t feel obligated to accept it and post about it. But know that I appreciate and enjoy your posts.
