But whatever my situation is, it does not affect my crazy excitement whenever I find out one of my family members, friends, blog followers, or casual readers is preggers. I'm overjoyed (and yes, envious) each time one of them calls, texts, or writes with the news that they're entering Mommyhood.
It is for this reason that I'm announcing a new weekly column called Baby Braggin' Wednesday!
BBW, for short, is so you can show off your nugget with pictures, stories and fun, little facts. Each week, I'll select a little peanut to feature and write up a blog entry about him/her/them. I just need you to supply the pics and info!
Here's how it works:
Send me an email @ firstname.lastname@example.org with your nuggets' name, age, birth date and where you live
Attach up to 3 pictures of your baby (toddlers and big kids accepted, too - I love 'em all!)
Include some baby braggin' info - this can be anything from birth stats or their first word to a funny thing they do or the moment you knew they were wicked smart
Once you've been picked, I'll notify you by email and get cracking putting together your kids' Baby Braggin' Wednesday profile!
I'll admit my motives are a bit selfish in doing this but I really just want the chance to show off all the peanuts who belong to my friends and family. I am so proud of all of you and happy that you get to be mommies and daddies!
Besides, who doesn't get a smile on their face when looking at the chubby cheeks of a brand new baby? I know I do!
