To accept this award I have to write about my inspiration and nominate ten other blogs. Here is my submission on my inspiration:

One day I was alone with my 3 month old daughter attempting to get her down for a nap. I was going in for my kiss when she dodged me – flat out dodged me. Oh ho! “You can’t get passed the Kissy Momster!” I said and got my kiss amidst her gummy attempts to giggle.

In that moment my first children’s book, “The Kissy Momster”, came to me. I practically ran from Kitten’s room to get it all down before it left my head. That was when my desire to write children’s books really ignited in me.

My children have not always been my inspiration to write; I have loved writing much longer than they have been alive. However, they are my inspiration to write now. Through this blog I get the pleasure, excuse, opportunity – whatever you call it – to write on a daily basis. And I love it. Writing is my passion. My children are my inspiration.

My nominees for this award are:

1. Adventures in Baby Knitting
2. Doodlemum
3. Little Bird’s Dad
4. Dear #$&!% Baby
5. Land of Quo
6. Stodmor’s Blog: Surviving motherhood without eating your young 
7. Everday.
