New to You

I have to give credit where it is due, so, here's thanks to my neighbor, Ahna, for turning me on to the possibilities of blogging.

As a result of blowing hours of would-be Saturday evening family time reading hilarious and heartening passages on Iguana Banana, I've decided to re-evaluate my earlier view of bloggers as self-infatuated-nutballs to include other such describing words as: clever, interesting, funny, and fabulously entertaining. It matters not that I, too, am now a blogger. Haha.

So, while trying to come up with some funny name for this blog, I posed this question to my seven-year-old daughter, Gillian:

"Can you think of a word that describes us?"

To which she replied, not skipping a beat, "Qwingk!"

"Ummmmm. Okay. What does that mean?"

"Us, Mama! Queen, Princess, King! Duh!"

After which, in case my stupidity still lingered, she drew an illustration of her word. See above. I guess that's it then. Qwingk.

You're welcome and I'm glad you're here. I can't wait to read what you write, you with that devilish grin and sly wit and dry, dark sense of humor. I am hoping for an occasionally pink, puffy silly blog entry, too..?!
Qwingk it is!

I've got those too! They just hide out in my rather large big toe sometimes...I'll have to get the tweezers out.

Love the poem! I'm looking back - at you - and you are looking forward - at Gilly.

Qwingk! Perfect!

Love, Mom

Hey, welcome to the blogging thing. Totally self-indulgent, yes. Completely self involved, sometimes. But thankfully it's all of those other terrific things you mentioned too! Is your child an illustrator?! I totally see a book there, Qwingk.

Thanks for the welcome!

Hahha. She thinks she is. Fabulous idea, by the way! We'll have to see about working on that...great for Christmas gifts!
