Elf help, fairy dust and other things


If you are not in the mood to read about fretting...read THIS or THAT

If you are an elf, fairy or other magical creature - who helps those in need - could you kindly pay a visit to my house because in less than 24 hours my in-laws arrive and I could really use a visit (hello? laundry nymph - this includes YOU!)

My in-laws live in a 'nother country, in a 'nother time zone, in a 'nother continent...which means we don't see each other very often.  And I'm still in the "I hope they like me...they really, really like me" phase of our relationship (after all these years I still feel that way - can you say FRETTER*?!)

Anyways, dear magical creatures...if you wouldn't mind swinging by - you know to help with the cooking & cleaning & sock matching...I'd really appreciate it.

*fretting isn't restricted only to in-laws...elevators, international plane trips and radio interviews also freak me out

“Flip for the Holidays” Giveaway


Are you ready to “Flip for the Holidays” (not "flipping out"...because we know, ready or not, holiday flipping out is already amongst us). No, we are talking about the very cool Flip Video Camcorders.

The How: These camera’s are about the size of my cell phone and they’re jam packed with features including a 2” LCD screen, 120 minutes of recording time (8MB!) AND they shoot video is amazing High Definition.

All Flip Video camcorders come with FlipShare, a software that lets users organize, edit and share their videos seamlessly. Simply plug your Flip into your computer (using the handy built-in USB arm) and then you can simply drag-and-drop your files for quick video sharing.

In the coming weeks, Parent Club will be posting some videos using the Flip - and sharing the experience with you! (remember the garden elf in the movie "Amélie"...sending postcard pictures from all over the world? It might be something like that...without the elf)

Oh, and in the spirit of the season...Parent Club, togther with Mom Central, wants to give one lucky reader this great gift.

The Giveaway:

One Flip Ultra HD Value: Just under $250

To Enter:
Leave a comment to this post about who in your life you would give the flip to and why.

Rules (because life has rules)
* you can comment once per day

* Tweet the contest once per day: @ParentClub using the #Flip4holiday hashtag (comment that you did so) = an additional entry

* Blog about this giveaway once with a link back to Parent Club (comment that you did so) = an additional entry

* Giveaway only open to Canadian residents, 18 years or older.

* Giveaway runs until December 31st.
(*winner will be randomly drawn)

Holiday Frazzle

Ho Ho...Hold on a minute...I received a few e-mails yesterday noting the confusion about the Visa giveaway being declared. Honestly, yesterday I woke up - looked at the calendar - did the integer generator (lovely tool that is) - and hit the road on errands -- all thinking this was the week of the 21st.

A bit holiday frazzled I am. I'm not thinking in terms of dates but in task lists: who is left to buy for? what are we having for dinner? is there fruit for the lunch boxes? do I have all the research for that article yet? (and obviously, the traditional, is there at least one pair of clean underwear for tomorrow?!).

I appreciate the fact that yesterday's e-mails about the Visa Giveaway didn't rang me out (really, because I know everyone is frazzled right now and venting in a comment box can be so 'feel good' - and I am so glad you Parent Club readers keep it respectful!)
