Caption Contest #3
Update: This contest has ended. Click for the winners.
Heavens to Murgatroyd! It’s another caption contest!
Submit your caption for the photos above via the comment form below. The three photos create a scene from my baby boy’s second day of life, inside a hospital bassinet.
Your caption can apply to one or two of the photos or the whole scene as conveyed in all three images. Your choice. I’m smart. I’ll figure out to what you’re referring.
Be sure to include a valid e-mail address (it won’t be published, but will be used to contact the winners). Enter as often as you like, in the same comment post if you wish.
The contest ends 11:59 p.m. Sunday, May 25, 2008.
Read the contest rules for the nitty gritty.
Three funny, punny, creative or thoughtful caption submitters will win a complete five box set of Bob Books, the same series reviewed on Thingamababy, the same books my 3-year-old daughter is using right now to learn to read.
When the contest deadline has passed, my wife and I will narrow the captions down to our 10 favorites and the good folks behind Bob Books will narrow it further to name 3 winners of a five-box set of Bob Books.
About Bob Books:
"You’ve prepared your child for reading â€” refrigerator magnets down low and easy to reach; letter sounds taught. Your child can proudly spell his or her name. Perhaps he can identify the "stop" and "open" signs as you drive in your car. He or she is ready for the next step into reading.
Bob Books was developed as a step-by-step, book-by-book program to guide your child gently through the early stages of reading. Each level addresses a stage in a child’s reading development.
This carefully crafted, simple, and progressive approach to learning assures children success and confidence from their very earliest reading experience. These boxed sets are the bestselling, Bob Books first introduced 30 years ago. They are a time-honored favorite of parents to over two million happy kids that have said "I read the WHOLE book!"
They really are an excellent book series; I’m so glad I found them and that the family behind Bob Books is so nice.
Now, believe it or not, those baby photos were not the reason we packed a rubber chicken in our hospital bag. I’ll tell that little story after the contest is over. In the meantime, get the creative juices flowing and have some fun with your captions…
