Thankyou!

Post image for Thankyou!

One of the people I follow on Twitter and have met around the blogosphere, Liz Ditz, has drawn my attention to the Science Scouts, or the Order of the Science Scouts of Exemplary Repute and Above Average Physique.  Just like the real thing, they have badges, and I qualify for the “I use Twitter to spread Science” badge for being able to condense science into 140 characters.  It’s a long time since I’ve sewn on a badge, but it’s on the sidebar and I’ll be putting it on my Twitter page, which is the next project.

Secondly, an embarrassingly long time ago now, the lovely Kristine from Bilbified awarded me the Kreativ Blogger Award.  I was putting together the blog pages for this site at the time, so held off until now when it’s finished.  The rules are:

  • Put the Logo on your sidebar, or within a post.
  • Pass the award on to 12 Bloggers.
  • Link the nominees within your post.
  • Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
  • Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

So I would like to pass on Kreativ Blogger Awards to:

  1. Caro & Co – Take your children and play outdoors!  This lady makes even me want to garden, and I live in the desert and have a black thumb.
  2. Planning With Kids – The Planning Queen will tell you how to get organised so your life runs smoothly, and give you lots to reflect on with your parenting.  I’m in awe.
  3. Adventures With Kids – Someone I feel a lot of kinship for with science and teaching qualifications, except she lives on a 5 acre block.  She does some amazing things with her kids.
  4. Three Times Kewl – The Kewl family are very, very, well, kewl.  Slightly older than most of the other blogs I read, I’m saving up advice for the future.
  5. SquiggleMum – A compassionate and wise Mumma, and another one with a teaching connection.
  6. Picklebums – Honest, funny and frank.  Raising twins plus one (almost two) on 10 acres.
  7. Raising My Boychick – And now for something completely different.  Still parenting, but grappling with issues of privelege and discrimination.  I find it a challenge to reflect on my parenting.
  8. Sleepless Nights – How can you go past the title?  As some of you know we continue to struggle with the little one’s sleep, or lack thereof, so I felt instant kinship.  They’re in Tasmania, so completely the opposite side of the country for me.
  9. Childhood 101 – Christie is Perth born and bred, so I have a sense of kinship.  She is an experienced early childhood educator and her blog has great ideas of things to do with your kids, as well as sensible information about education and childcare.
  10. PhD in Parenting – Very thoughtful and well researched, a great advocate of attachment parenting.
  11. Confutata – A great sceptical parenting blog.
  12. Keeping Mum Sane – An honest look at parenting, Treacy has just moved back into the workforce while continuing to breastfeed and attachment parent.

So they’re my blogs I visit when I want to laugh, think or learn.  Check them out too and support some great Mums.

Edited!: Oh No!  I don’t know how, but I’ve made a mistake!  I was actually over at this blog leaving the link to tell her about the award when I checked the list and she’s not on it!  How can this be? I love her writing.  The photos are amazing.  Her courage, patience and strength are inspirational.  And her children are just as incredible.  I need to give this award.  And you need to visit this blog.  Go.  Now.  Read.  Three Ring Circus.
