Deadlines Update (and a double Cookbook Giveaway – CLOSED)

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 18, 2010

So I thought I’d give you a quick update on some very important deadlines. (And read closely…there’s a giveaway at stake!)

The cookbook manuscript is due July 1.

It is almost finished. I will spend some time this week, adding some last minute finesse. There is not a doubt in my mind that I’ll get it to my editor by my deadline…if not early.

But that other deadline still looms.

It is fast approaching. I’ll show you.

Hey Mom, check it out. I’m up on all fours. (Said in a mocking baby tone.)

Now watch this Mom…I can rock back and forth too. (He’s totally mocking me now.)

(And that’s just all mocking there.)

So far, so good.  Not crawling yet. But he wants too…badly…as you can see by the look on his face.  Little stinker!

What do you think?!?  Will he be crawling by July 1st?!

To make this fun…I’ll be giving away a copy of The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook AND a copy of The $5 Dinner Mom’s Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook (when it comes out) to the person who guesses the closest time and date that Tyler will start crawling.

Definition of first time crawling: Moving arms and legs in such a way to move him forward (not backwards!).

Only 1 entry per person please.

Entries will be closed on Wednesday, June 23rd at 9 am EST. Entries closed.

Winner announced after Tyler starts crawling!

What’s your guess?!? When will Tyler start crawling!?!

June 23rd @ 11 am (My 9th wedding anniversary @ the time our ceremony started – so it has to be lucky – right?)

And a little side note, my youngest is doing the same thing and I”m sure she’ll be going before too long as well.
