Apologies for this blatant plug for my very good chum Lexy who is a finalist in the MAD Blog Awards 2011.
Actually no, not apologies, she's fantastic and quite frankly deserves to win.
There are not many blog writers who can have you literally crying with laughter one minute and the next minute you are sobbing with sympathy. MammyWoo can. She is more than just the self-deprecating manic mummy that she is often portrayed in her posts. Her plight to conquer the demon of post-natal depression is so over-whelmingly heart-wrenching that I defy you not to feel her pain and desire. Alongside the posts of the therapists and the snot-encrusted eyebrows there sits the tale of making the doctors realise that her precious baby boy Woo (otherwise known as Addison) was actually lactose intolerant; it was not just a stomach bug.
Lexy is hilarious and a talented writer. Don't believe me? Read these:
And possibly my all time favourite one:
Lexy's going to kill me for this bit but I don't care! She'll kill me for the whole post so what's an embedded video going to hurt?
I would really like you to vote for her to win The Best New Blog in the MAD Blog Awards. Click here to vote. PLEASE?!
