Before I begin this, I want to make it absolutely clear that in no way, shape or form am I hinting at, trying to get, wanting sympathy for, or in any other way fishing for an award. I DO NOT NEED ONE. I just had to share this little tidbit!

I was over at Elasticwaistbandlady's blog, reading more of her older posts. She is one hilarious woman! In the middle of reading a post, Princess walks over and spies Elastic's "Nice Matters" award. Not surprising that Princess loved it, due to her love of all things girly, flowery and pink. I'm sure that the flowers stuffed in a shoe reminds her of Cinderella's lovely slipper. From the moment she wakes up It takes her no more than 2 minutes to get into a dress and her dollar-store plastic pink dress-up shoes which she clatters around in most of the day. Have I mentioned that she's two years old? Anyway, here's our conversation:

Princess: (Quick intake of breath at the lovely sight, then pointing) "Mommy, Mommy, it's so
beautiful, it's so beautiful!"
Me: (Pointing to the one I just know she's gazing at) "That one?"
Princess: (Rapturously) "Yeeesss."
Princess: "It's so beautiful!"
Me: "Yes, it is, isn't it? You love the flowers, don't you."
Princess: "Yes..."(then said in a grave voice) "Mommy, you don't have one."
Me: (Smiling wryly) "Yes honey, I sure don't."

I know that I've started blogging not that long ago, and I don't even really know how awards work. I'm just happy that there are people out there that read and comment on my posts! That's gratification enough. You guys are awesome. I just never thought my 2 year old daughter would be the first one to point out my lack of awards!

Awards are such a two-edged thing, aren't they? Such a lovely ego much possibility for offense. Ugh.

The first award I got? I passed on to three people. Someone complained. Bitterly. I haven't passed on an award since. I should probably get over that though, shouldn't I?

Such a cutie, that princess of yours!

who needs 'em? i don't have any awards either, so i just figure that i'm lucky that i don't have to clutter up my blog with them! no offense to princess, but two year olds are not known for their aesthetic sensibilities!;) perhaps no one thinks that we're the nicest, but our blogs look cleaner!:)

I'm not giving you an award because of your post, I'm giving it to you because you're the first person I thought of to give it to after I received it myslef Thursday, which was, coincidentally, the same day you posted this!

It doesn't have flowers or anything, but come over and claim it anyway and pin it on your sidebar so Princess has something pretty to look at!

Ah yes, awards.

I strongly support and believe in giving blog awards: I am actually the Founder and committee President of the NAA which gives awards to special, unique and only to ONLY the most popular bloggers.

So now you know ;)
