I do make it a point to send thank you notes. I feel it is important to show gratitude, and I teach my kids to do the same.


Aloha Friday #10

It is Friday!
We know what that means...
As Kailani says:
"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!"
My ALOHA....
You know that baby toys can be pretty expensive, depending on what you get them...
And you hear about at Christmas how they end up playing with the boxes and the wrapping paper more than the toy you bought...
So, my question to you is:
What is the "cheapest toy" your baby liked?

With Broxton, I finished drinking a bottle of water and he heard the sound the plastic made...
He was amazed by it! I ended up putting it on the ground and he STILL plays with it!
It rolls everywhere... It makes noises!
Talk about a great "toy"!!!!!!
Okay, answer and visit Island Life!


Bummas - Review and Giveaway

***************** This contest has ended***************

Have you heard of Bummas?

Let me tell you...
When you have a boy...
Be prepared for surprise attacks!
You can ask my aunt...
She was changing
Broxton and all of a sudden you heard LK shriek!
Out she runs, laughing!
My Aunt came out, well... pretty wet!
Come to find out,
Broxton got her!
ALL OVER THE WALL, my aunt, himself...

To bad we did not have Bummas to the rescue!Bummas are these really cute little cloths.
You can use one to cover the private area while you are changing the diaper.
After you change him, the bum is wet from the diaper wipe,
So, you use the Bummas to dry the bum!

I love their slogan...

After the wipe and before the dipe,
A soft kiss of cloth to dry bums off.
Keep diaper rash at bay, the Bummas way.

How cute is that?
I love the packaging, it is cute, it comes all rolled up, the presentation is adorable...
BUT, it is paper, so I know it will not last forever...
Me? I love to hold on to things, I really wish the packaging was plastic, you know... More durable..
LOL, but then again, how many moms want to keep this on display for that long?
We have it set up right next to the changing table...

From their site:Bummas:

Eliminates the use of talcum powder.
100% Cotton - Woven Velour Terry Cloth.
Variety of color combinations for nursery themes.
Handy 5” x 7” size.
Durable. Just throw them in the washing machine and use them again.
Won’t pill, shrink, or fade.
They will last until your little one is out of diapers and beyond!

Baby Sitters Club - Remember?

Not sure about you...
But I used to LOVE the Baby Sitters Club.
I am not sure, but I think that might be what continued my love of reading.

I do remember that I had to write a report for school.
I wanted to go above and beyond, so I actually sent Ann M. Martin a letter...
Imagine my surprise when I got a letter back from her?
She took the time to send me a response!
She even included a picture/postcard of herself!

I bet I turned it in and hoped for extra -credit!
I wonder if I got any extra points?!
I do know that because of her taking that extra time to acknowledge me...
I STILL have ALL of my baby sitters club books.

I think I am going to have to dig them out at some point and see if I am missing any.
If I am, I need to google and buy the ones I need!
Maybe I can find that letter and picture!

I need better organization!

Do you have an author that was a favorite as a child?!
Did you read the Baby Sitters Club?

LikeWear - Review

I am not sure about you, but sometimes I feel as if it is hard to get cute outfits for kids that they actually LIKE to wear.
I may have found the answer!!!
I was sent a very cute sweatshirt from LIKEWEAR for my cousin to try!

It was a pink sweatshirt that said LOVE with Tootsie Rolls in it!
It was so funny...
LK came over...
and when I handed it to her, she was like,
"Oh, I LIKE tootsie - rolls!"
I laughed and told her to check it out...
She immediately put it on and we started talking about how soft it was!
The outside alone makes you want to snuggle with her!
Then, you feel the inside and you wish it was for you!

The only drawback that LK said was that she wished the shirt was a bit thicker.
I am not so sure about that, myself. It seemed rather thick to me... I mean, it is a sweatshirt!
I am not really sure about it being any thicker than what it was...
After her comment, I told myself that I need to go and check out the thickness of other sweatshirts! :) I am not a sweatshirt person, so I thought it was perfect!

Likewear also sent THE BEST SHIRT EVER for B.
It says Future Sugar Daddy!
M. will be so proud to see him in that!

I have to say, the styles that they offer for their clothing are in with the trend.
They have what you are looking for; Pajama's, Shirts, Pants, Bags, I could keep going, so just go and check it out!

Likewear has even offered all of my readers a discount code for the holidays.
Just enter JUMPIN-BEANS (in all caps) to receive a 10% discount until December 31st!

***** I received items from LikeWear for review purposes. *****


Reduced Price? OR NOT?!

You know how you go to the store and they have those little signs that stick out?

Have you ever looked underneath it?
I have...
I want to know just how much I am saving...
Okay, you might think I am weird, but still, I want to know...
Well, let me just tell you...
Half of the time, the "original" price is THE EXACT SAME!

That just gets me going...
Oh, that is a great deal!
I will save so much money!

Take today for example..
I went to the store...
I went for one item, it was on sale...
Sale ends on November 25th.
Of course, my luck..

I went and asked for a rain check then.
The guy looked and said that it was not on sale, that was the original price.
I said thanks and left.
When I got to the car, I got a bit perturbed.
If it was not on sale, then why was there a BIG GREEN sign sticking out that said...
