Things I Want To Do - Flashback Friday

Additions to the original post are in pink :)

This is basically my bucket list.  But if I am going to have a bucket it might as well be full of popcorn and have candy and soda on the side :)
This is a list. A weird list because some things are important, and some of them are random, but still, all things I want to do...

*be pregnant
*give birth
*have a baby
(yes I realize that all of these could be the same, but they also can all happen independently i.e. miscarriages, c-sections, adoption)
*make myself a dress that looks pretty
*move out of my mother-in-laws house  DONE
*buy a house  DONE
*build a house
*knit something that doesn't look like crap
*crochet something that doesn't look like crap
*finish reading the Bible
*visit another country at least one more time Even Canada would count I decided
*learn a second language to a conversational level
*have a garden
*have a clothesline sort of done... I have a clothesline, but the cord is all bunched up at one end and I have never used it...
*make a quilt
*be a wonderful housewife, who keeps a clean house and feeds her family well rounded meals
*breastfeed at least one baby at least 2 years
*raise a good Christian family

Well thats it... I don't have super lofty goals, I don't want to be rich or famous, or travel around the world. I don't want to do exciting things. I just want to be the best wife and mother I can be.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
