Wanted to get in a quick post today before I go pick up the boy--thought I'd share a bit of the table of contents for the 2010 CWIM (available early August) so you all can see what's in store.

I'm so happy to have found your website – I think it's wonderful! Children-related websites tend to be my favorite, thus it's only fitting that I work for a published children's author who's site is based on her delightful characters from her Danny the Dragon children's book series, complete with contests and plenty of helpful information for families, moms and kids. I think you two should definitely hook up. In fact, she selects other bloggers and sites to recommend to her readers at and The Danny site is being revamped this weekend. You will love it! Let me know if you'd like to hook up and I'll let her know. Would you be interested in recommending her site? Thank you, Rosie
