Dear SITS,

First of all, Iwould like to thank SITS for featuring me today. I would also like give some advice for future featured bloggers.

#1. If you are a parent, be prepared that every and any emergency will come up on your special day. The kids will be climbing all over you while you read and type. It's okay. Just go with it. Shake them off if you have too. It's only one day.

#2. If your 3 year old comes up to you while you're trying to read comment #88, which may or may not be Expectantly Waiting (she really was #88 to comment :), and asks for a snack, it's too late. You should have planned all the meals in advance and hired a sitter to tend to the kiddies. If you're computer is not mobile, this may not make much of a difference, as in my case.

Oh well, next feature-day. We do get more than one right?

#3. Make sure you have the Shania Twain, Come On Over, album playing in the background while you check your many comments.......Why, you ask? Because you're SAUCY! That's why!
(Sing it, "I'm goin' out tonight, I'm feelin' alright, gonna let it all hang out....Wanna make some
noise, really raise my voice, man, I wanna scream and shout.................AAAAhhhhhh")

#4. Try, try, try to make sure your kids do this for, at least, 2 hours.

For those of you who have already been featured, please feel free to leave any other tips. You may also want to stop by Mama's Losin It and read her little post about your day of glory. It's good for a gut workout!

I still have a few hours to relish the feeling of fame. I pray I will gain a few more readers. I hope I didn't scare anyone off from parenting. Everyday is an adventure!

I would like to share a few of my favorite comments from today. I'm not playing favorites, well I guess I am, but not to be mean. There were just a few that really made me chuckle and I thought you might enjoy them.....Here goes....

Heather said: "I wonder how tasty those markers were? I mean, I'd get it if they were the scented ones... :)Those Color Wonder markers are the only Implements of Destruction - erm, I mean art supplies - that I allow my kiddo to bring upstairs to her room. All the rest of her art stuff must stay downstairs. At least, that's the rule, I won't comment on whether it is followed or not.......................Cheers!"
Marla said: "i think this is why we have kids... so we can forgive our parents for grounding us... embarrassing us in front of our friends...using spit to clean our faces...making us wear ridiculous clothes etc..." -Re: Destructo Strikes Again

Caroline said: "Yay Yay Yay it's your big SITS day! I'm so happy for you. Your blog is so fun and the best thing is its real life stuff. Now, instead of saying the walls have ears, you can say the walls have LIPS!!!"-Re: While Daddy Napped

Debbie said: "Yowza...those are the times I say, God lent me these children, God lent me these children, I love my job, I love my job...Now go to your room before Mommy asks for a raise!" -Re: Watch Out, She Bites!

All in all, it's been an awesome day.

***On a more serious note, please pray for Melissa Lee at Stretch Marks. She got some bad news today and I know she is hurting. I'm sure all the moms out there are hurting for her. Please take a moment to visit her blog and give her a word of encouragement.

I know just what you mean about everything going wrong on your special day. Our car broke that day and I thought I was going to spend the entire day at the mechanics getting it fixed. Thankfully (but at the same time not) they were too busy to deal with our jalopy so I was able to read my comments for SITS day. The next day, however, when I needed to return all of those fabulous comments, I was in the shop with the car.

Congrats on your special day!
