It's finally happened! I was asked to be a guest blogger - it's only taken two years of blogging. Today I'm the guest blogger over at The Fish Pond for Fishy Girl, who is on vacation at a house without Internet access. Who knew such a place existed? I was so excited when Fishy Girl asked me to write something for her blog, but then the pressure kicked in. I spent a week writing and deleting posts. I was trying to be witty and clever and just like MadMad, but then I gave up and decided to just be me.
I sometimes think Fishy Girl and I were separated at birth because we have so much in common. She has four kids; I have a fourth on the way. She used to be an English teacher; I'm the daughter of an English teacher and a hopeless grammarian. She used to be a Stampin Up! rep; I've spent WAY too much money on Stampin Up! products. You get the idea.
Because Fishy Girl has four kids, she's really the only one whose advice I listen to when I start to freak out about having a fourth kid - she's already been there, done that and has lived to tell the tale. She's talked me off a ledge a number of times when I've been in panic mode about how on earth I'm going to manage four kids ages 8 and under.
So if you have a few minutes, head on over the Fish Pond and check it out. And if you're one of Fishy Girl's readers visiting me - Welcome! Pull up a chair, grab a cuppa and nose around for a while.
