Answered Prayers

This is actually going to be a running list of prayers that are answered in my life.  Sometimes, because my big prayer (a baby) doesn't get answered, I feel like God isn't listening, so I think this will be a great way to keep track of all the awesome things God DOES do in my life!

-My brother had started down an not so great path at the end of high school and his first year out of high school.  I prayed that he would change his behavior before it was either to late, or it bit him in the butt.  He recently joined the Army and called me when he got out of boot camp and said that he had stopped doing one of the unsavory things he was doing and that he had been going to church every Sunday!  Hopefully he continues down his new path.
-Michael and I had started watching Weeds on Netflix (yes this one is weird...) and while it started out alright, it quickly got WAY out of hand, since Showtime and HBO seem to think they need to add massive amounts of swearing and some "soft-core" porn to their shows.  They also started to insult Christians on a regular basis, and I felt like we shouldn't watch it anymore.  I tend to be a naggy wife, and am often telling Michael we should make better choices.  I decided to leave this one up to God and prayed that if he didn't want us watching the show anymore, he would have Michael decide that we shouldn't watch it, so I don't have to be a bossy-britches.  A couple of days later Michael decided we shouldn't watch it anymore!

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…

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 …

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…
