Two For the Price of One

And seeing as how the price of one is free, this is a deal that can't be beat!

Today is Leap Blog Day, which is a made-up thing where on February 29th people write guest posts for each other. It's very prestigious and exclusive. And by exclusive I mean that anyone who wanted to could join.

I didn't invite anyone to guest post for me because at the time I didn't have very many readers. My readership has grown a lot since then, in large part because MOV is amazing and kept linking to me. And now I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't ask anyone. I'll invite a guest poster next time it's Leap Blog Day. Which will be in four years. Oh well.

Today, I'm hanging out on two other fabulous blogs. As of now, one is posted. I'll put up another post here when the second one goes live.

In A Letter From the Teacher - posted on Marianne's lovely blog We Band of Mothers - I share some of the things that your children talk about at school. No, for real. (Check out Marianne's blog - she's funny and sweet and she has a son who looks just like Slim Shady when he was a baby.)


To new readers coming from the blog hop: welcome! I'm glad you stopped by for a visit. To get a feel for Clay Baboons, check out a few of my favourite posts:

Happy leap year, friends!

    1. It really is a fun idea! I just wish I hadn't been too shy to ask someone to write a story for my blog.

  3. Um....should I feel bad that your post is now in my top 10 list (see sidebar at webandofmothers.blogspot.com) of most-viewed entries? And I didn't even write it. Sheesh. That's the last time I let you bring in a boatload of traffic to my rinky-dink blog.

    Just kidding - and thanks again for an awesome post!

    xoxo Marianne

    1. I know how you feel. My number one post on my last blog was written by someone else. And my number two post was being bot-visited by russian porn sites. So yeah...that was awesome. Ha! And I'm glad you got some extra pageviews! But I suspect most of them came through the blog hop and not from me. I don't actually get all that many pageviews...less than 100 per day. So I don't think I can take credit for a boatload of traffic!

    2. You're too humble. Just remember me when you end up working at Disney.
