The 2010 Preggies! Awards Are Here. No Designer Dress Required
It’s awards season.
A few nights ago, Hollywood's best and brightest were dolled up and decked out to receive the highest honors in filmmaking. So, I was thinking, you deserves an award more than pregnant women—the ones who are repopulating the earth, ushering in new life and doing the thing that only womankind can do. What deserves more recognition than the 40 weeks of pregnancy. If that is not deserving of a golden statuette than I don’t know what is.
Unfortunately, I don’t have one of those.
What I do have is my first annual Preggies! Awards. My way, of honoring the best and even better of pregnancy. No designer dress required.
