I was just watching TV (something I rarely get to do!) and I saw the new free credit report dot com commerical where they are at the renaissance fair and when they sing that song they sound like the old BLINK 182 band. Here is the link for the guy who sings it.

Black Firday: How I love thee let me count the ways.....

So instead of dragging my but out of bed to get to the stores by 6am, waiting line only after I race to the toys only to find they are gone; I deiced to join the 1,000's of people shopping online this year. ToysRUS had all their Doorbuster deals online. So Robert and I bought everything we wanted to get for Mikey online and let me tell you it was worth the 19.50 in shipping to be able to stay in bed :)
This was important to me this year because for Keira (with her only being 5m by Christmas and having an obsene amout of toys due to Mikey) we decied to by her some more Cloth Diapers. My favorite site for Cloth Diaper info has to be Diaperswappers. They had a list of WAHM that were having sales on their Cloth Diapers. I also got some detergent from Crunchy Clean. I will be reviewing all the products on my site that we bought.

Marine Wife's

So I am sitting on the couch telling Robbie about one of the threads in my group about pulling the guys out of Iraq. And I was telling him how another Marine wife was saying that if we pull out of Iraq before we are ready then we are just disregarding all of the time and effort spent there. And the men and women who have spent precious months and sometimes years away from their family for something that they believe in.

So Robbie says to me, "Amazing! Its like the Marine wife's take on the excellent quality's of their Husbands!"

IF you give it she will play!

So I was at a playgroup yesterday and I was talking to one of the moms who has a DD just 2wks older than Keira. She said that her DD was already in the exosuacer and this got me thinking....

And then I though good lord I am a bad mom. So I got out some of Keira's rattles last night. She has been grabbing them and shaking them. The first few times she smacked herself in the head but shes doing really well right now. She is also doing really well when I prop her up in a sitting position.
