I am so freaking excited to announce that Whoorl and Hair Thursday won Best Personal/Family Blog and Best Shopping/Beauty Blog at the Just Spotted Orange County Blog Awards Party last night! I was totally shocked…in fact, they had to call out ‘whoorl’ a few times before it registered in my post-partum, pea-sized brain. A huge THANKS to all of you who voted! You made my night! However, don’t worry; my short stint with a big head lasted all of 30 minutes. Shall I elaborate?
My fellow blogging compadres Tera and Christina invited me to grab a margarita after the awards party to which I responded with a bit of drool dribbling from the side of my mouth. (I guess that means yes.) On the way to the restaurant, I called D to tell him the news.
Me: I won! I WON! BOTH CATEGORIES! I WOONNNNNN! I’M KING OF THE WOOOORRRLLLLD. SO HAPPY! SO EXCITED!
D: That’s great! So great………um, Wito has diarrhea.
Me: Not so happy. Not so excited. Not so King of the World.
D: Sorry, sweets.
D assured me that everything was fine (p.s. – believe it or not, this is Wito’s very first gastrointestinal issue in his 4 years of living, so we are totally novices in the barf/diarrhea department) and to have a good time. So I enjoyed my dinner and Celebratory Margarita™ sans kids. It was quite relaxing, I must admit.
I returned home around 10pm to a quiet house and busted out a brief performance art-based “I’m a WINNER” jig around my living room before retiring to bed. This girl was ready to saw some happy logs! And that’s when Wita, my perfectly consistent 8:30pm to 6:30am angel of a sleeper, decided to wake up at 11pm. And 3:30am. And 6:30am.
I now sit here with a 4-year-old diarrhea patient who is begging me to drink milk (NOOOOOOOO) and a spaced-out 11-week-old who is 3 hours away from receiving her first round of immunizations.
WAY TO RAIN ON MY PARADE, KIDS.
(But you like me! You really like me! Thanks again, all!)

Congratulations on the big win! I love Whoorl and have been a reader for a few years since ‘the patient’ was a wee tiny baby.

Congrats! Kids will through you for a loop everytime and deviate from the routine when you make plans. You probably don’t need to hear this, but keep the little dude hydrated. It’s a good time for him to sneak some Gatorade out of you.

Major congrats to you for winning for both blogs.
And hope Wita sleeps more and Wito can have his bowels calm down soon.
