I've Been Nominated!

Y'all are simply the best. And because you are the best, I know you won't mind if I shamelessly beg ask for votes. You see, I've been nominated! For an SPD Blogger Award! I don't know who in the world thought to do that, but what a nice surprise it was. Thank you, super-secret-nominating-imaginary-friend who reads my blog.

And now some of y'all are like, "wha?!?!! what is SPD?" because I actually don't blog about it all that much. Well, actually, I DO, I just don't label it all that often. But if you've ever wondered why I'm a bit odd, or why the Tongginator is called the Tongginator, just know that she and I both have something called sensory processing disorder. Sensory issues are fairly common among the international adoptee crowd, so it's something I encourage all adoptive parents to learn about.

Plus, it helps promote Greater Understanding of my own general brand of wackiness.

I am nominated in the Humor category, though I can't imagine why (does this mean people are laughing at me???), so vote often (twice a day) and vote daily (until Saturday) so that I can win. Because my fragile self-esteem at the moment just can't quite manage the whole "it was an honor just to be nominated" shebang.

Although it was.

An honor to be nominated.

So thank you, Hartley (herself an adoptive momma), for sponsoring this and, most importantly, for working so hard over the past year to create the SPD Blogger Network. No one knew about SPD when I was growing up; I am so glad that won't be the case for our children.

Goodness, I read several SPD blogs, and I *still* only recognized two of them (including yours). Oh well, I'm sure they're all worthy, and I'm extra sure I have more reading material. lol Oh, and you might not talk about sensory issues much, but you are the reason I found out I have SPD. I found a link to your blog from someone else's blog who had just found out their son had SPD. And I continue to laugh and love your stories about the family. Thanks for being kind, and loving, and funny, and oh, being great, too. :)

You're in the humorous category?! ;) I guess they just couldn't have an awesome AND humorous category together!

And a few other people, of whom I have no clue, just benefited from me voting for you. I pretty much picked my favourite blog title in the other categories! Lol! I'm shameless!

And I'm not trying to 'suck up', but you don't have to be a winner for me to love your blog.

Congrats, girl! I voted!!!

How fun! I love blogger awards. I voted.

Can I ask, did you know you shared this when you adopted? Surely not--doesn't sound like something China would flag!

You're just the right people for round two, if you ask me. Eyes open, arms wide.
