You voted me onto the 2012 list of Top 25 Funny Moms on Circle of Moms.
Now…what the hell does this mean?
A few things.
1. Honor, Prestige & Great Fame
I made the list at Lucky #13, so I got to share my 3 favorite posts and answer a few interview questions. CLICK HERE to be wowed by my answers.
2. Mind-Boggling Popularity
I will be included on the complete list of Top 25 Funny Moms on the Circle of Moms website all year, which will bring me more readers, more people exposed to my talking about my anus, facial hair and adorably psychotic children. CLICK HERE to see the full list, because there’s 24 other funny ladies there that you shouldn’t miss.
3. More Kim, More Often
At the Circle of Moms site, click The RoundUp tab and scroll down to Savvy Mom Central. I’ll be there answering questions, like What’s Your Dream Gift For Mother’s Day? or giving parenting advice (which you know you want from me…uh, right?). CLICK HERE to see all the ones I’ve answered so far.
I also can now write original articles for The Roundup, like this:
I Didn’t Marry Kirk Cameron, but I Kept Our Imaginary Daughter’s Name
At 10 years old, planning my marriage to either Kirk Cameron or Ralph Macchio, I wrote a list of our future children’s names inside the front cover of my journal.
Fast-forward 20 years, I’m married to someone WAY hotter than either of those guys, pregnant with our second kid.
The top name from my list, the one I want to use, is a Top 5 Name of 2007.
Ha ha ha! Oh…poop.
I had a love for this name for two decades.
I imagined myself married to a myriad of television and movie stars since that day in 1986, calling our daughter’s name to come eat the dinner our personal chef just set out for us in the elegant-but-not-stuffy dining room.
I was attached to this name.
Everyone I told said Don’t Do It.
Don’t be one of the bagillion moms calling this name at the park.
Don’t allow her to be one of many, many girls in her class with this name throughout school, forcing her to use her last initial or come up with some nickname.
I didn’t listen.
I pulled that name drawn in a loopy hand off 10-Year-Old-Kim’s Future Baby Girl Name List and gave it to my daughter for the rest of her life.
It has been five years, and I have yet to regret it.
Sure, it’s a totally popular name that causes me double-takes on the school blacktop.
However, it suits her. It sounds lovely with her last name, and her brother even gave her an adorable nickname that works.
So in five years, when she’s scribbling some Nickelodeon star’s name in her own journal next to a list of Future Baby Names, I’ll tell her to hold onto that list nice and tight.
Because it just might come in handy one day.
