31 Days of Housewifery - Day 3

Well, the downside of having a blog that I update with my progress is that when I suck, I have to admit it to the world.  Or at least the tiny bit of the world that happens to read my blog.

Last night our car broke, and so Michael borrowed a car from his cousin, but he wasn't able to get it until she got off work, and then he had to drive her home, so he didn't get home until midnight, so we were late to bed.  THEN Miss Baby woke up screaming for no apparent reason at 4:20 am, so I changed her diaper, and then snuggled her for about 15 minutes, and put her back into bed.  Which made her really mad, but she got over it.  So when the alarm went off at 6:00 I was NOT really ready to get up.  So I got up and made Michael breakfast and lunch, and promptly got back in bed.

I still cleaned everything that was part of my morning routine, even though Miss Baby and I didn't wake up until 9 am.  I skipped getting ready, but I wasn't planning on showering today anyway, because its not great for my hair or skin.  I still brushed my hair, put on make-up and got dressed.

In the afternoon my mom and I cleaned my kitchen really well, and as an extra I organized my pantry.  But  I didn't vacuum or fold the laundry, but my sink will be shiny when I go to bed, and tomorrow is another day.

Tomorrow is another weird day though, because at 10 am I have to go to a court hearing about Miss Baby's case.  It isn't anything important, like a custody hearing or anything, but apparently its really good to go to them, and you find out a lot of information, which would be nice.  So the routine is out the window, but I will still try to stay on top of what I should be doing.  Luckily my mom is here visiting so she will help me out because she is awesome.

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…
