As I was setting up the changing table last night, I took the Pampers diapers and started entering in all the codes I had. Even though it takes at least 400 points to buy anything, a pamper saved is a pamper earned! (That sounded less lame in my head)
Today I found a couple of codes for free Gifts to… Continue

This Winter season has been unusually cold and has caused many at home or snow days with the children. When you are parents of multiples, it can seem like a very long day that never ends--basically GroundHog Day on repeat. The first day seems wonderful--snuggling underneath the blankets and watching a favorite family movie. By the third day, you are totally sick of the hearing the Elmo's World theme song and you really don't care if the kids have drawn on all the walls in the house with… Continue

How do you breastfeed multiples? Which formula should I use on my preemie twins? I want my multiples to have play dates, (other than each other), but I don't know where to take them? None of my other mom friends have multiples or understand what I'm going through? All of these questions and much more can be answered by joining a local multiples club.
Multiples club are a valuable resource and wealth of knowledge for parents of… Continue

Bilingual culture is a part of everyday society, including in the world of children. The proved benefits of children speaking dual languages have been reflected in schools and the media. From dual language immersion programs in elementary schools to television shows that portray bilingual children, such as Disney's Spanish Handy Manny or Nickelodeon's Chinese Ni Hao, Kai-Lan, teaching another language to a child has become highly recommended.
Most families of multiples have an… Continue

I’ve always liked the month of February: my birthday falls on the 8th day of the month, it’s short- bringing us a tad closer to springtime, then there’s the celebration of the Hallmark holiday Valentine’s Day (although I’ve never been much of a heart person). Today, I like February even more because we get to introduce you to Karyn Parsons in celebration of “Black History Month.” What we love about Karyn (a.k.a. Hilary Banks from Fresh Prince of Bel Air) is that she reminds us that we must… Continue

In the winter when the cold weather blows in, you might find it hard to motivate yourself to get out of bed or even leave the house. Shorter winter days also mean less sunlight every day and sunlight helps us feel wide-awake. You might be experiencing a winter slump and a drop-off in energy levels like many other people. And when lacking in energy, many people look towards food for an extra boost. Make sure you’re choosing the right foods year-round and follow these tips for beating your winter… Continue

I have to get this off my chest, my two cents about why I understand the whole point behind claiming product reviews, but why I think it’s going to cause an issue when it comes to claiming them as “income“. As a blogger we are required to claim the products we receive for free as income because reality is the product is our payment to write a post sharing our honest opinion about the product.
I get it, the IRS wants to get their part in the tax area, totally understand that. The big… Continue

Once our daughter's high school play finished up in the fall, she tried unsuccessfully to get a job. You'd think retail shops would've at least been hiring temporary help in preparation for the holiday season. But, no.
So we decided that instead of looking for a job, her new job would be applying for college scholarships. Ideally, she's devoting around 10 hours a week—the same hours an outside-the-home part-time job would require—applying for scholarships.
Initially we… Continue

Parenting is a role that requires us to learn to be flexible in our thinking and creative in our actions. Wanting to be right all the time implies that we are rigid and reactive and probably fearful. This can be a typical stress response when we are under pressure, but you have to admit, not a very productive one.
How do you know when you are "stuck?" Remember the old saying, "Insanity is repeating the same action over and over again… Continue

I got many things from my mom: My brown eyes, brown hair, love for reading and penchant for procrastination.
I also got my somewhat intense devotion to television shows. At last count, she had about two dozen programs on her TiVo season pass, and as her child, I've always known you don't mess with mom when she's watching her TV shows.
I don't currently watch a lot of TV, not since having kids; as every parent knows, sitting down to watch an entire show is a luxury once… Continue

If you've heard it once, you've heard it a million times. Babies are expensive. Sure, they enhance your life in more ways than you can count. They also (and I say this filled with love for my little darling) deplete your bank account. Okay, maybe that's a little extreme... but I will say that we are very aware of how much baby-related items cost, especially those things we now buy routinely. Like diapers. And wipes. And formula. And...
Until recently, we've been shopping at our local… Continue

I was prepared for January through prayer, contemplation and time management. Now it's gone! Poof! I managed to do what I set out to do in January, but forgot to pray, contemplate and manage February. It's already the 2nd and I'm wondering if I'm too late.
Will I fly by the seat of my pants? Probably. I didn't plan on consistency being one of my New Year's Evolutions! I did knock off a few pounds last month because I gave up wine and sugar. But...I don't have a plan for February -… Continue

Dear friends and family,
Happy holidays new year! We hope this letter finds you and yours in good health and good spirits (except you, Uncle Ed — you had enough “good spirits” for all of us at our New Year’s Eve party, and your drunken striptease to the theme from “The Love Boat” won’t soon be forgiven).
We are so thankful for the many blessings bestowed upon us this year, chief among them the arrival of our new daughter, Asha, and the continued growth of our son,… Continue

Last week I didn't just fall off the wagon; I'm pretty sure I got run over by it. There are wagon wheel treads on my back.
It started with a Rice Krispie treat. I was so proud of limiting myself to just one that I celebrated by having another. And then another.
Two Ho-Hos, three (generous) handfuls of chocolate chips and a panic attack later, I realized I'd just had my first major breakdown in my "make healthy choices in 2010" campaign.

After much thought and too many people telling me I shouldn't I've decided to try cloth diapers, we're on day 2..and it's one of the easiest things I've done yet! Holy cow! I think when people think cloth they think leaks and poop everywhere! Not true at all! I decided on all in one inserts...and I've got a heavy wetter on my hands and lets just put it this way, I put Lilly to bed last night at 9pm and by 5am the diaper did not leak (i had doubled up in inserts of course). I still keep the… Continue

Good morning and happy Tuesday to you all. It's been a long week of carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. Here's where Mommies can come to vent and get rid of some of that unwanted weight, metaphorically speaking anyways. Though, the more I think of it, there could very well be a link between carrying the weight of the world and holding a little extra baggage around our middles! But that's another post altogether! LOL Today, we're gathered here to vent and unload. You can comment… Continue
