Everything In Moderation - NOT!

I do everything in binges.  I take 3 weeks between blog posts, then I post 3 all in one day.  I earn money on ChaCha $10 in one day, then about $3 the rest of the week.  I clean my house al in one day, then don't do much for the rest of the week.  One thing I don't binge on is food, but thats just because I love to eat, so doing it all at once is not near as satisfying as grazing all day.

Lately I have been binging on sewing.  Just for the last day or two.  But I have (almost) finished four baby dresses with two matching head scarves, I am working on a vintage style dress (which will look ridiculous because I had to buy fabric from two different stores, and black is not always black I guess), another skirt, and a baby skirt.  Then I will probably put my sewing machine away and not take it out for another month or two.  Or not, because Joann's is moving, and they are not moving any of their stuff, so its all going to be on sale.  I am hoping that I can get some awesome deals and make lots of new clothes.

Anyways, this is not going to be a binge blog session, because I am using Brittany's computer and I think she and Shayne are going to go home, so I would have to actually get up and use the desktop.  I am pretty lazy so I don't think that is going to happen, but I could be bored later, who knows?

Everything You (N)Ever Wanted to Know About "Mama Cloth"

Remember how I said I was a crazy hippie??  I believe I crossed the threshold from crunchy to crazy in February when I ordered some cloth menstrual pads.

I decided that it was ridiculous that I was putting all kinds of chemicals on -or even IN- a mucous membrane for at least 15% of my (non)child-bearing years!  Mucous membranes are absorbent and I don't really want to absorb extra chemicals for no good reason.  I have heard that the disposable kind are so irritating to your vaginal lining that most people bleed for a day or two less once they switch to reusable.  Since my period has a mind of its own, I highly doubt I will ever notice this...

So I decided to buy some of the reusable sort.  I thought about a Diva Cup, but didn't want to invest the $40 on something I might hate.  I knew that even if I didn't love pads I would still use them, at least sometimes.  The main problem I ran into was that they are FLIPPING EXPENSIVE!  I mean over the course of time they are much ch…

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…

New Pampers Diapers - A Quick Review

I am a member of Influenster.  They give away awesome sample packs for companies and in return I review/promote them on various platforms.  The product I am about to discuss was given to me by Influenster and Pampers free of charge!

The new diapers are designed to fight "diaper sag" and have an absurd hashtag to go along with it (I am a firm non-believer in hashtags and prefer to call it the "pound sign") # sagtoswag.  I don't like the word swag either, so this campaign is really not selling the product to me if I am being completely honest (which I usually am).

Most diapers have all the weird absorbent material in one compartment, making it so they sag quite a bit when they are wet.  The new Pampers have three chambers so the liquid is more spread out and not saggy.

What did I think about them?  Well I think its a nice idea, because saggy diapers really look gross.  And it did work, but it looked weird in a different way.  Three areas were all sagging a little…
