A Canadian Weblog Nomination!!!

I had this email sitting in my inbox this afternoon;

I just wanted to let you know that Urban Daddy has been nominated in the Family & Parenting, Lifetime Achievement, and Placeblog categories of the 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards!
This is a new, juried competition with public nominations. The shortlists of nominees will be announced on 1 December 2010, and the finalists will be announced on 1 January 2011. If you would like to show off your nomination, grab a button for your website and spread the word.

How exciting!!!

Lifetime achievement in blogging means the blog must be active and older than 2005.  I’ve been blogging since 2004, so that makes me feel old. 

The Family and Parenting group has a TON of way better blogs than mine.

The Placeblog category must relate to my numerous posts about Toronto and my involvement in making this city a better one through volunteer work and being involved municipally.

All in all, very honoured and a little humbled by the nominations…

Our focus, as always, is on parenting and what it is like being a dad for the 1st,2nd & 3rd time, plus what it's like being the mom of twins! Sleep? Who needs sleep!
