We made it through another week yo. This week was UP, and then it was down, then back UP, and judging by the hacks and coughs coming from the little’s rooms, we are on our way back down. This winter has been the sickest one in this house since we had kids, almost eleven years now. Is it spring yet? Last week I was hoping for it as I was trapped in the house with a sick two year old. I kept a diary and shared it with you this week in Dear Diary, My Kid is Sick. I’m hoping to not have to go through another week like that, because I know that next time there will most likely be vomit involved.
This week also brought up the ever popular, Don’t Be a Bloghole blog hop, linky party, shindig. Every other week I put it up there, and every other week people keep showing up to share their awesomeness. I feel like the movie Field of Dreams “if you build it, they will come”. These awesome people are here and if you don’t check out at least a handful of them you are so totally missing out. Thank you to all that continue to come and link up. I adore you.
This week I also took us back in time. Back to the times BC, otherwise known as “before children”. It has been long enough for me that I have a difficult time remembering what it is like to pee alone without the inquisition of ”mom, are going poop or just pee”. Read about that and see what else I miss doing in Things I Used to Do Alone.
In other exciting news, I have been chatting with my friend Amy from Positive Parenting Solutions and I am so excited to tell you that her and I are teaming up to offer all of my readers and friends a free Webinar on February 28 at 9 PM EST. She is going to give us all some super helpful parenting hints during this one hour event called Get Kids to Listen Without Nagging, Reminding or Yelling. I have to be honest, at first I was unsure of the response I would get about this but after asking my Facebook friends and getting an overwhelming YES I scheduled with Amy right away. I’m very excited to offer this to you and hope you all will mark your calendars for February 28 at 9:00 PM EST. It will last about an hour and is interactive so you will be able to ask questions and get answers right there!
What did I read this week? Hmmmm….I actually read quite a bit. Some of my favorites:
People I Want to Punch in the Throat takes on the iPad Potty. I have been seeing pics of this and all I can say is WHAT IN THE HELL?
My Life and Kids invents that must have item that will help us parents pee in peace. I ordered two of them, without the additions of course.
Let Me Start By Saying reminded me why I have such a strong dislike for the Easy Bake Oven. Anyone that can use the words “burrito farts” in a post about an Easy Bake has my attention.
Now that you are all caught up, don’t forget to sign up for email updates from me and follow me via all my social media sites. We have a blast on Facebook, I still suck at Twitter but am getting better, and I have options galore on Pinterest. I’m admittedly a pin-a-holic. Have a great week and as usual, thanks for being here. xoxo
