This is the week you readers get to contribute to help make the blog even better.

Tuesday we will have a Reader Sample Schedules day. I know how much you all love to look at the sample schedules on this blog. On this day, you will all be able to contribute your sample schedules. We will have posts for each age range as well as for multiple children. You can add your current schedule for whatever age group you are in, and you can also add past schedules if you remember them.

Wednesday is Poll Results day, so be sure you vote today and be sure you vote on the new poll Wednesday. Polls are a great resource for people to see what the majority does and also that there are minorities who do things differently. It helps guide people and helps people to not feel alone in the process.

Thursday is Reader Blogs Day. You will be able to share a link to your blog. This helps foster a great Babywise community!

Friday is Reader Favorites Day. On this day, you will be able to share your favorites in various baby products and toys. 

My intention is to add the comments into the main body of the post, but I haven’t done that for all of the comments made last year, so look at comments and the body of the post to see what is there. Some day, I would love to have it all in the post, but it does take a lot of time so I do what I can with the time I have.

Let me take the opportunity to thank all of you. Thank you for your comments. I love to read the comments and love the feedback on what helps you in the posts. I like to know what is helpful to you. Feedback is great. I really appreciate them, even though I have never been able to get past that “two week behind” hump consistently since having a third child, I do get to every comment (I am notified of). Hopefully some day I can get on top of it…maybe…but who knows what a fourth child will do to me šŸ™‚

Thanks for visiting, thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, and thanks for encouraging. Thank you for your patience through this pregnancy–it has been a rough one. The end is in sight! Of course my family comes first, but I do spend a lot of time on this blog. This whole blog is obviously done for you, so I hope you know I love and appreciate all of you!

    Valerie, I could never fully express all my gratitude for what you do! You are a great help and role model in so many ways. One of the biggest ways, I think, is how you promote a spirit of encouragement and togetherness. This Reader Week is a perfect example.
