Tuesday Blog Hop--Why You Should Read My Blog...

I started this blog for my grandchildren. I was already keeping a journal for both of them, when I found out about blogging...So I thought, I'll just do a blog for them! I've had so much fun doing this blog! Both children are too young to appreciate these stories now, but give them a few years...they'll be reading and laughing all over the place!!!(they may want to strangle me, too) This blog is a regular account of activities that are taking place in the lives of my All- American, Freedom Lovin' grandchildren!

As for why you should read MY blog...I don't really know... but anytime that you deal with babies or children, it's bound to be entertaining! I've read blogs of others and learned a few things while I was being entertained, so perhaps you could learn something from my blog as well. I also LOVE to write!!! I'm dedicated to my blogs...just ask my family...

I have a mountain of experience with children, raised 3 of my own, helped teach 20 first graders per year for 15 years, was a nanny to twin baby girls for nearly 2 years, now I have 2 grandchildren of my own... with more to come, hopefully...Oh the tales I could tell from the past 30 years after dealing with so many children...

If the entertainment or educational aspect of my blog doesn't snare you into following...how about a weekend contest??? I've gotten into the habit of having a weekend contest/giveaway every week. I've been giving away cute little fall gift bags, but at this time, I am giving away a gift card to celebrate my upcoming 100th post! I love contests almost as much as I love writing!!!

So stop by, have a laugh, share your experiences, and maybe even win a prize to boot! If you leave a comment, I will automatically enter your name in my Target Gift Card Giveaway...the gift card is worth 10 dollars and it will be given away in 8 more days...Feel free to leave comments, as often as you would like. Comments please??? Scroll down past McLinky and leave one or maybe two...Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! We have a lot in common..I taught first grade for three years and I was a nanny for twin boys! It has been interesting switching from being the teacher in charge to the teacher assistant this year because of our move and I definitely have a HUGE appreciation for all the "assistants" out there! I personally think that assistants are just as much educators as teachers, but I am noticing that there is a bit of a difference in the "status"

Thanks for giving me your blog address!

I so have to send my mom to your blog. She wants visitors and doesn't know how to get them I'm sure if she see's how you blog about your grandchildren she will realize she can do it too
