Yesterday was the big day- The Great Cloth Diaper Change.  This was an attempt to set a Guinness Book of World Records™ for the most cloth diapers changed simultaneously around the world.  Since I live in Syracuse, NY I attended an event put on by Basic Baby.  There was also a location on the north…

A week of Facebook

So usually when I don’t post a ton during the week I give you a long update going in epic details, but… I’ll be busy cleaning tomorrow (as I’ve been saying for the past two months BUT have to get done) because I have to get Belly’s room cleaned out and ready to move her…

Fire Bad

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to thrift – not just for the practical reasons, like clothing 5 kids, but for the sport of it, too.  It’s true what they say – one man’s trash is indeed someone else’s treasure…or diamond in the rough, anyway. Although I’ve scored some amazing stuff – like…

Today I spent the morning working on my new coupon binder. I totally rehauled it and I love the way it looks! I haven’t had much time to work on it so I put some CSI on this morning and worked for a bit. Afterwards I got to reorganizing the playroom and sorting books. I…

Is She 4 YET?!?!

It’s no secret that I kinda don’t like the 2’s, but we all know how I feel about the 3’s. I despise them. I wish I could skip that age completely. At 2 they don’t really understand yet and they’re pushing boundaries, talking back and the dreaded “MINE!!!” phase. And then they turn 3 and…

Hots

photo from here “This is a good day for swim class, Mom. It’s so super, extra, very, hot.” “It’s pretty warm.” “It’s so hot it feels like the whole world is on fire.” “Bob, do you know what hyperbole means?” “Nope.” “I think you do.”
