Rachel's Great Idea

So the last few evenings I have been doing something really embarassing with my time.  And I am going to admit it on here, even though I avoided saying exactly what it was on my facebook.

I have been reading Baby-sitters Club blogs.  I can't help it.  I'm a fan of the BSC on facebook, and someone linked to their blog, which was nice, but had just started so there wasn't much to read.  But her blog linked to another blog, which of course linked to other blogs and so on and so forth. 

As if that isn't pathetic enough, I read almost all of one blog (that was 3-4 years old) that night, but I skipped over the ones that were reviewing the books I either had not read, or could not remember reading.  After all I don't want to spoil the surprise.  Yes, you read that right.  The surprise.  These are books that give away half the plot on the back and always end happily ever after.  Oh yeah and they were written for like 9 year olds.  But I still plan on reading them *someday* and don't want to know what happens.

If you have read all of my entries, you know that I am collecting all of the books up.  I was off to an excellent start, but since moving out and having restart paying bills, finishing that collection (or the Animorphs for my husband) isn't a priority, when there is debt to be paid and babies to have inserted in my uterus.  Of course I can't just have books sitting around on my bookshelf not being read.  Oh wait I do that anyways.  So I read them all.  And now I decided to start a BSC blog like all those other ladies that loved the books, so I will probably reread them again in the near future.  The other thing this lead me to do is to embarrassing to talk about, but at some point I am sure I will, because secrets are not really my thing...


  1. You know what's awesome about revealing secret obsessions? More than likely, there will be a bunch of other people who feel the same way. :D I used to read the BSC books when I was little and have actually been wanting to read some of them again. I saw a used copy sitting on a shelf in a bookstore on our honeymoon and I was really tempted to pick it up, but didn't for some reason.

    I also was super into the Sweet Valley books and TV show. :p

  2. I love the BSC books, but reading them as an adult its like... where the heck are these girls parents as they are wandering around NYC? And why is Mallory not allowed to wear cool clothes, but she can have a boyfriend, who I am pretty sure she kissed? If you ever want to read them, I have like the first 16, most of the Super Specials, and lots of the Mysteries :P

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. 

- 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

- 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…
