Why My Regular Blogging Stopped

So I did really, really well at blogging on a regular basis for about 2 months.  After that it honestly became overwhelming.  I have mad respect for all the "mommy bloggers" out there that manage to post on a regular basis.  Even though I don't have any kids, I do have kids in my house starting at 7:30 am, M-F. 

So for the month or two that I was blogging furiously, I wasn't able to spend breakfast with the kids.  I would make them food, stick the baby in his exersaucer and come sit at the computer and link-up like mad.  I just didn't have the time for it, if I wanted to do the best baby-sitting job I could do.  I had time to write the posts, but just writing posts doesn't get views.  You have to get the posts out there for people to read.  I have the time to do that too, but not at the times when it is effective.

The kids nap at around 2 pm everyday, which gives me plenty of time to "link-up" in the afternoon.  Unfortunately I noticed that when I did that I didn't really see anymore views than I did when I didn't do anything but put the post in my Facebook feed.  So I just quit.  I will be starting up again, because of some changes in my schedule, but I don't know for how long, and I don't know how consistent I will be.

  1. I totally understand. Finding time to blog is difficult when taking care of little ones. I try to work like crazy during nap times. :-) That's why I'm glad I blog with my sister...we share the work. :-)

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…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
