Last week to order Everyday GPants

I posted a few weeks ago about the sweet deal that gDiapers is offering for a limited time. Everyday G's - 6 gPants for just $70. PLUS get an additional $30 off if you use a code from a gMum. In return, if 10 orders are placed with a code, then the corresponding gMum gets a gDiapers gift certificate for $100. Pretty sweet deal considering our planet will benefit from not using disposable diapers!!!

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who used my code - I reached the 10 orders and am looking forward to ordering the next size up in gPants for Athena with my gift certificate!!!

Here is a list of some codes that still need a little help to get their 10 orders. Remember to place your order by midnight (PST) on July 31st - that is this Friday!

g696Solanoy has 1 needs 9

g1025Meyer has 1 needs 9

Oh yeah, and I became a fan of Mommy Necklaces a couple days ago on Facebook. WOOHOO!

I like the Silver Ice collection. The colors are neutral enough to wear with anything and I like black. :)

My very first giveaway!!!

So much to do, so little time......probably the daily thoughts of every parent.

How do we attempt to solve it? Some do. Some don't.

I have struggled with the reality of this so much more lately since bringing home Athena home from the hospital and now being out-numbered 3 kids to 1 Momma.

Some days it feels like a losing battle. Other days I am triumphant and giddy upon realizing a small victory.

Right now all three kiddos are asleep. In my bed. I am in my recliner next to my bed. Surfing online with only 6 hours of sleep. I can't relax enough or get comfortable enough to fall asleep. However....they are asleep. So, I will continue to operate on less than a full nights sleep because it means they are comfortable and resting and the day ahead will be a little smoother.

What is your favorite way to accomplish tasks as a parent? Do you multitask or attack challenges one at a time? How do YOU deal with the daily dilemma of being a parent while still taking care of yourself?

I *almost* forgot... my very 1st giveaway (!). It will be for a beautiful Mommy Necklace in your choice of design. Post a comment with an answer to one of my questions from above to be entered.

Contest details:
Starts Tuesday, July 21st, 2009 and ends midnight (PST) on Friday July 24th, 2009. Winner can pick ANY Mommy Necklace design. Winner will be selected using and will be posted Saturday, July 25th. Good luck!

Signing has Signing Baby!!!

Have you ever heard of Signing Time? I love love love their show & products and was ecstatic to learn that they have new DVD's especially for babies.

Here is the story of how it all started;

Rachel Coleman and her husband Aaron brought home their first daughter, Leah, in December of 1996. They were very surprised to see how well Leah would sleep through practices and concerts for Rachel's folk rock band, and later found out that Leah was profoundly deaf.

Rachel and Aaron began teaching Leah Sign Language to their daughter as quickly as they could, and found that when her friends could only point and whine for the things they wanted, Leah would sign "Juice, not milk" or "Cheese and crackers, please". Other parents begin noticing, and when Rachel's sister Emilie began teaching Sign Language to her son Alex, at only 10 months, he stopped fussing and signed "milk".

Rachel and Emilie decided to create a captivating, entertaining video to teach sign language to hearing children, thus Signing Time was born!

Within a few years, the Signing Time program has spread by word of mouth to all 50 states and over 20 countries. Signing Time is used widely by educators, pediatricians, home-schoolers, speech therapists, public schools, daycare centers, libraries and families as the most fun and easy way to introduce children to sign language.
