I remember being in 6th grade at the "awards assembly" for the end of the year. I was sitting in those horrible blue plastic chairs. You know the kind that stuck to the backs of your legs.
I sat there and fidgeted, watching all the smart kids go up and accept awards for perfect attendance, good grades and perfect behavior.
I have to admit, while I was one of the smart kids I'd chosen to hang out with the wrong crowd (damn middle school redneck boys and their tight Wranglers!) and had little interest in perfect attendance.
But I did have an amazing teacher who believed in me and bestowed upon me the Sunshine Award for most attitude improvement (yes, it sounds silly I know).
On the outside, I made it seem like it was no big deal, an embarrassment because I know if I didn't act cool, I'd get teased for it (it was 6th grade after all). But on the inside, I was floored. I was so stinkin' happy.
Today is like that day, not the boys in tight Wranglers or the embarrassment. Just the stinkin' happiness. One of my favorite bloggy pals, Ashley, gave me an award!
The NobelPris award means: This is an award for being a wonderful Mom. You do fantastic work. Be proud of your accomplishments."
Yeah for me. :)
Now I pass it along to EVERY MOMMY!! Because all of you, kick major ass.
