FREE sippy cups from AVENT

Phillips Avent has a promotion NOW for a free sippy cup or sport cup (BPA free). I guess they're trying to instill confidence in them again :)

They ask the age of your child (note; tell them if you have an older sibling because they can send something for your older child too). Voila, they will send you two FREE cups which are age appropriate.

    Mother's Day - Tips/Ideas/Cries for Help

    Isn't everyday Mother's Day to a Mother? (and thank you for wetting the bed last night because I really did want to do one more load of laundry today sweetheart).

    Perhaps, Mother's Day should be one day when you don't have to mother. Forget the flowers. Let Mom get out of bed when she wants to...not when the alarm goes off, or when the baby cries, or when little tummies want Krispies.

    Mother's Day should be the one day when Mom doesn't have to shop for the food, cook the food, serve the food and put away the leftover food.

    Mother's Day should be the one day when Mom doesn't wipe bums.

    Mother's Day should be the one day when Mom can walk out the door without carrying the diaper bag.

    Mother's Day should be the one day when children don't touch each other, children don't shriek at each other -- really children should be in separate houses for the whole entire day.

    Mother's Day should be the one day when Mom sits down and writes a letter to her babies. This year I loved you, this year you drove me crazy, this year you did this and said that, this year I found or let go of...(insert your emotional baggage here).

    End of rant -- there is that load of laundry to do. Coming tomorrow; actual activities you can do with your children for Mother's Day.

    Tip for Bee Stings

    This may be an urban legend...but it might also work.

    If you get stung by a bee place a penny on the bite for 15 minutes. Apparently, the copper in the penny counteracts the bite and you should see no swelling and have no pain afterwards. Tape the penny over the bite and remember to keep it on 15 minutes.

    I also have heard it is not good to pull out a bee stinger but to use a credit card to scrape the stinger out of your skin.

    Would anyone like to comment if this is urban legend or truth?...

    Call for product testers!

    Parent Club has been challenged to cooking and baking with Splenda for a few weeks. (Interesting, bc - personally, - I've never tried Splenda).

    The folks arranging this challenge are looking for more participants in this challenge. The criteria is that you need to live in the Toronto area, cook &/or bake (doesn't everyone?) and have a net life (i.e. a website, blog, facebook or myspace). They are specifically looking for 125 people within the ages of 25-55 for this marketing program. You fill out the on-line survey form. If you qualify you will get a phone call to confirm your mailing address.

    Help end world hunger
    This is an interesting link; good for challenging your mind during babies nap time.

    It is basically a vocabulary knowledge game. However, for each word you get right the site owners donate 20 grains of rice to the UN World Food Program.
