Finalist #1 - Meet Carolyn @ Team Boo

I have to admit....the first time I ever came across the Blog entitled Team Boo...was seeing her nomination....and I am so sad it took me so long to be introduced....I LOVE Carolyn...and the way she looks at her life....honesty, humour...and poo.....having lunch with her would be a stitch!!

Thank you Brooke over at Brooke in Wonderland for showing us the fabulousness that is Team Boo!!!

A very deserving Mommy Nominee to Be sure

Here are the probing questions....all inquiring minds would like to know

1. In your opinion, what makes a great, readable blog?

(I am drawn to simple and aesthetically pleasing blogs who's posts aren't too long,..and my favorites usually involve some amount of humor. I don't usually like when people take themselves too seriously, or talk about cupcakes too much.)

2. What traits do you think our mommy blogger of the year should possess?

(First off, her body should be scarred and flabby in one way or another. Because anyone who didn't get stretch marks and/or a flabby butt still needs time to marinate as a mother ;) Also I think she should be inspiring in some way...gets people's brains rolling...makes people with and without children know life can still be fulfilling and awesome after kids.)

3. Why are mommy bloggers so imporant today?

(because we have thankless jobs, and there are thousands of us who want to tell our stories...albeit unflattering and sometimes disgusting, we need each other as sounding boards for ways to cope with the tricks that the universe plays on us daily)

4. If you were stuck on a desereted island...what 3 things would you take?

(besides sunscreen, my buffalo blanket, and as many fruit roll ups as i could stuff in my pockets)

5. What is probably the best/worst mom story you have?

(the one while about 8 months pregnant with my first child: One night I went to sit on the edge of my bed to talk to my husband. Underestimating my size and lack of coordination, I rolled off and fell on the ground causing me to fart and then of pee my pants for the seventh time that day. I felt like such an big oaf that i then started to cry uncontrollably...on the what was surely my last pair of dry pants. Pregnancy really knows how to keep vanity in check ;)

6. What do you plan on doing if you win our Mommy Blog of the Year Contest? (Going to Disneyland?)

(if i were to win this award i would roll around on my bed naked in all the free stuff and then re name my blog "all who don't appreciate my motherly goodness can suck it"...Really though I'd probably just feel more guilty every time i fed my kids cereal for dinner ;)

7. What do you want the public/readers to know about you?

(That I don't ever want to pretend i am something i am not, I am a total sucker for my kids, and that in terms of "motherly battle wound credibility"...I am all set.)

I want to go check out all of these amazing blogs!! And who knows... Maybe next year I'll be a "real" mom and someone will nominate me!! :0)

Carolyn said...

This was the first time i'd heard of your blog too {or any of the other nominees for that matter}. I am pretty small time as far as readers go, but am stoked to be on here!

FYI: just in case you misunderstood Lesley's description: ("LOVE Carolyn...and the way she looks at her life....honesty, humour...and poo...."), I don't actually look at my own poo...though I do deal a lot of kid poo in my daily life ;)

thanks lesley!!

Eva Gallant said...

Never heard of Team Boo. Gotta go check her out. I love that you are
highlighting such great mommies!

The "rolling around on my bed naked" statement had me busting up. Laughing out loud all alone at 12:27am and trying not to wake anyone is rather a hard task!

Chrissy said...

I love reading her short and sweet answers that re-affirms my love and reasoning for mama-hood! I am a new team boo fan.

I am not so sure how to cast my vote here....but I am voting for hard for me to pick one that is the favorite, as ALL moms are so different and unique in their own way...I speak from experience on that platform.
