Did you miss it? The John Cougar Mellencamp Hurt So Good Blog Award of Excellence went on an unannounced hiatus last week, mostly because I just plain forgot about it.
I hope this does not tarnish the prestige of this totally important and not-fake award.
This week's recipient is not only all kinds of superfantastic, but is also EXACTLY the kind of blog I must get weekly requests for: a blog written by a mama who waited until she was in her 40s to have a baby.
Antique Mommy's masthead says it all:
I was 44 when I had my baby. This blog chronicles the joys and challenges of living in the brave new world of hot flashes, sloppy cookie kisses and trimming itty bitty fingernails while wearing bi-focals. Sometimes sweet, sometimes tart, but always real.
Antique Mommy was nominated by Veronica for her "humor and class." While I probably wouldn't recognize class if it hit me upside the head with a caviar spoon, I DO like to think I know a think or two about what's funny.
Things That Are Funny: This entry. Also this one. And what the hey, let's do one more. (Heh. That last one is totally cheating, as there are links to THREE more entries that are funny at the bottom. Suckahs!)
Congratulations Antique Mommy! At least you're old enough to get the Coug reference, unlike the rest of the INFANTS around here who don't even know who he is.
