Sleepy Toddler, Peg People, Flamingo Friends, & Other Saturday Laughs

5. TR has discovered that he can somehow reach his light switch so naturally, he turns it on after we put him to bed.  I kind of like it because we have to turn the light off when we go to bed and I get to see him sleeping which is supa cute. 4. We painted Peg People and they turned out really well.  TR only put a few paint smudges on his; he mainly just wanted to paint all over the paper. 3. Cupcakes' teacher is really impressed by the detail she puts in her sentences. I LOVE this … [Read more...]

My Most Perfect Coupon Experience

I got a coupon in the mail from JC Penney's.  It was of my favorite type: "Get $10 Off Your Purchase of $10 or More".  Sometimes I get these from Kohl's and Victoria's Secret as well. My goal is always to spend as little real money as possible, thereby maximizing my coupon.  I usually end up having to spend between $1.00 - $5.00 because usually things are priced like $4.99 and then there's also tax. This time, however, each of the pictured shirts was $5.  When I got to the counter, I didn't … [Read more...]

I Don’t Know What To Do About This Thumb!

Thumb-suckers!  Am I right?!  I myself sucked my thumb until I was six. For me, it was peer pressure that got me to stop.  I remember the kids making fun of me in my ballet class because I was sucking my thumb.  My teacher even chimed in saying I was too old for that.  I was so embarrassed.  So I made the choice to force myself to stop.  I decided to go to bed with a puppet on my hand and I did it.  I am 31 years old and I still remember how hard it was to stop. Now my daughter Cupcakes is six … [Read more...]
