I have some very exciting news!
I got a phone call last night, that my dear sweet angel of a daughter entered our town's yearly Mother of the Year Essay contest... and....
I won! Actually, Pumpkin Muffin won with her essay about me!
On June 1st, we go to a Mayor and Council meeting and the honor will be officially bestowed, with a plaque and her original essay for me, and a $50 savings bond for her!
Our picture will be in the local paper together and they will print her winning essay!
I have no idea what she wrote, except that my Hubby said she never even mentioned my RA or Lupus. That is great, because I would hate to think we were chosen on a sympathy vote of any kind.
Oh yes, I forgot to mention on journal that there was another essay contest at her school. The Spring Concert is next week and the kids from 2nd and 3rd grade had to write an essay about America.
Pumpkin Muffin's essay was 1 of 3 picked out of about 180 kids!
I cannot wait until the concert when she will be reading it for all the students and parents, kindergarten through 3rd grade!
Very exciting stuff here! I am as proud as a mom can be!
Only 9 years old and already showing off her writing chops! Yay!
I will post more info after I receive the essay and award!
