Well, my little blog made the cut for the special needs category. I then went on to win! Yay, me! I was so excited! Then something weird happened. It slipped my mind. It hit me this morning that the magazine issue highlighting my blog would have been out on the newsstands for like a month now! If it's even out on the newsstands. I'm not even sure if it's sold on newsstands. I received my copies of it through my daughter's school, but they don't hand out the summer issues.
So, I flew into a panic! I found an online version of the article here. But the magazine version hopefully used the photo I sent in. I hit 3 newsstands today on the off-chance that I would find it. One newsstand did have the Parent and Child magazine. Unfortunately, it was the May 2010 issue! The other two places did not have it. Interestingly, they barely had any parenting magazine. Both places had one or two copies of both Parents magazine and Parenting magazine. What hope did I have to find the magazine I was looking for?
I'm going to have to contact Scholastic and see if I can buy a couple of the issues from them. I cannot believe I let so much time pass before it even occurred to me to look around for the magazine.
I could blame old age for the absentmindedness. Or I could blame my daughter. This wouldn't be the first time I've blamed her. Since having her, it seems she ended up with most of my gray matter. She's brilliant, and I feel like I can't remember a single thing! So, it must be all her fault.
Now, I just have to remember to hit the newsstand near me in four months. Maybe they'll have the issue I want then!
