Living with a children's author isn't as easy as it looks!


The ALA Awards were presented last week. There were a LOT of winners. Mom wasn’t any of them. Not only did she not WRITE any of the winning books, she has barely READ any of the winning books. I think she needs to step up her game. She has printed out the list, so that’s a good start.

Meanwhile, I have been winning awards left and right over here.

Our friends Wallace and Samuel  and Coccolino gave us the Best Blog Around the World Award.


Around the WORLD – Hear that, Mom?

Our friend at Trifles gave us the Cracking Chrispmouse Bloggywog Award

See, Mom? I spread joy, peace, cheer, and stuff like that all over the place.


And our friends Little B. and Granny at Angelswhisper gave us the Excellence Award. excellence-awardExcellence, Mom. Not just-OK or good-enough or kinda-nice or a Rate-Your-Story-4.


Thanks to all of our bloggy friends for sharing these awards.

And Mom, it’s seriously time to step up your game.

Less this....

Less this….

...and more this!

…and more this!

  2. You send that cake my way I’ll take care of it for you!!

  3. That is a lot of awards, Cupcake! Congratulations!
    Your mom really is going to have to step up her game to catch up with you. I think you could give her a few pointers.

  4. Lookit all those awards Cupcake! My goodness gracious…..I have to admit that my eyes were also drawn to that donut….yum…..I have a feeling that your Mom is destined to receive one of those awards for her books too – my Mom always says stuff like “all things in their own time”……but I say “I WANT IT NOW!!!”…………

    Hugs, Sammy

  5. Must say I agree with Sammy Cupcake..that donut has me hooked! poor mum let her eat donuts for tomorrow I am sure she will be back on top of her game….sometimes we don’t get what we want or like so we can stop and focus and what we need..mum will come up trumps..i can feel it in my waters ! and wow what a stash of awards…well done Cupcake….:) hugs Fozziemum xx

    • Thanks, FM. Mom says the excuse of needing energy from the donut. Ha! How much energy does a person need to sit at the computer and talk to herself?

      Love and licks,

      • Bwahahaha quite a lot Cupcake!! it’s not easy to make something tangible from the ether! so go mum!! even if she does have a donut to get her mojo working 🙂 Hugs Fozziemum xx
