|angelina||This should be fun!!! I have a ton of storeies!!! I am a new mom and while I am the third oldest of 8 children all that experienced I gained at home only helped a little! There is nothing like having your own child to look after. I will have to enter this contest and maybe the many stories and memories made with my 4 month old will win!|

I'll try, but at my age (almost grandma) the ole grey cells are being replaced by grey hair I've been a mother for 23 years (including pregnancy time) but can't think of anything off hand that would be inspiring to other parents.
Hey I know, I'll write what I did so that everyone else will know what not to do
Mind you if I did win it would be a little awkward as I live in the wrong country
(for those of us in other countries, could we nominate another BU member in the USA to receive our prize?)

|Spaggie||And don't forget about the time you spend with your neices and nephews, either! There are lot of things you could write about!|

|tailwaggers||Cheryl, I agree. It could be a story about something YOUR mom taught you. Or it could be observations or lessons you have learned from other moms.|
