New icon...

I finally created a picture icon for my mom to use when leaving comments.

She's had a high speed internet hook-up for a while now and surfs the blogs on my sidebar. I think it's really cool how "into it" she is. Most of our phone conversations include at least one reference to someone in Blogville. Sometimes I think she's more up to date on things than I am. She'll always let me know when it's time to move someone down on my sidebar to the "Waiting to Travel" or "In China" sections.

Before my mom had access to the web she was excited about the adoption, but I don't think she truly got the "why China" part of it until she was able to follow along and watch other families travel and come back home with their children. Now she is VERY excited and right on top of what's going on with referrals and what's new on Rumor Queen.

My brother also follows along and checks in on my blog daily. It really is nice to have my immediate family so into it and excited.

If you see a comment on one of your posts with this little ladybug icon, you'll know it's my mom checking in on you. By the way, her name is Linda.

I LOVE the icon...how thoughtful of you! You are so blessed to have a mom like that. We only have one family member (my sister) who is happy about our adoption. Lauren will be so lucky to have such a wonderful grandmother.

I love it! That is great :)
My mom reads all the blogs, too, - it helps them to keep involved as our wait continues and continues.

Good for you!

Donna, your mom is the bomb! I think it's awesome that she's into your blog and your blogger friends. I know she's stopped by my blog and said hi. I thought that was so cool. I wish my mom check out my blogs and others... She's excited, just not into the blog thing. :(

Tell your mom I said "HI"!!!!

The ICON is AWESOME!

How much fun is that!!!! She certainly needs her own blog to motivate other Waiting Grandparents who aren't so hip and technologically savy!!!! Welcome Linda!!!

New blogger to your blog - I'm a fellow Precious Panda member (lid 1/27/06).

Hi Mom!! I think that idea is just wonderful!! Already know how much you care about that little bundle from China!!

Catherine said...

Welcome to the blogging world Linda! I love it when our parents hop on board the China adoption blogs and get to know our online friends. Your daughter is a sweetie and I look forward to celebrating the referral of Lauren Elizabeth with her...and you!
