TT - No Time For Flash Cards

I kinda missed Tuesday's Tribute. I only do them from time to time anymore, but certainly when I came across No Time For Flashcards recently, I knew it was a well deserved Tribute opp.



In my current wild and blinding Twitter addiction I recently was adding folks left and right to follow those who seemed to have something special, in the hopes of developing some new relationships and growing my Twitter following. That is to say, I was looking for people who seemed to make their 140 characters really hum. And I came across a woman named Allison who everyone seemed to know but me.

After a little investigation of her website, I realized I had found a gem...she has a fantastic blog, an amazing personality, and a very large following. Turns out I am last to know. Again.

Allie's blog is a wonderful collection of reviews, craft projects, parenting advice, activities, and my personal favorite, songs. You see, she sings them...on video...and they are infectious.

Now, poor Allie thinks I'm a stalker, I'm sure. Because I have been tweeting about her, talking about her blog, and now here's a Tribute from some random guy on the internet.

I promise I'm not sitting outside your house in the rain with a drenched candle.

I just wanted you to know that the fun that my kids and I had together tonight was because of the work you have done.

So, Thanks Allie. And please ask around...I'm odd, but no psycho.

I have been following Alli on Twitter for a while and just recently spent some time at her blog and love it! It is funny that you mention her today because she was just announced as "Mommy Blogger of the Year" at Project Mommyhood.

Oh and Jay your performance was so riveting my daughter is begging to watch it again.

That video with the kids was so enjoyable.

I'm pretty sure we have the same trim in our houses. Leather couches are good, too. Very, very good.

I'm off to check out Allie. Apparently, I'M the last to find out about her. :)

LOL! My daughter Chloe thought you were too cool for words!

Lee said...

That video is so cute!

That's a really neat blog though. Too bad I don't have kids. Hahaha.

Em said...

Would you send your Potty Champion over here please? I could use all the help I can get.

Adorable sing-along!!
