hungry

Just having had a new baby I am trying to get my weight back down. I have found that nursing this time around has left me feeling hungry all the time,combine that with the fact that I am trying not to eat much, and I feel starving all the time. This really hits me after 9 when the children all go to bed and things quiet down. What doesn't help? Seeing food on the internet as I browse around places like http://www.busy-mommy.com/. Tonight I found a nifty giveaway for Oscar Mayer® Deli Creations. http://brands.kraftfoods.com/delicreations/hotsandwiches.htm has a great, yummy looking variety available and you can win coupons for 15 of these for free. Go here and check it out. http://www.busy-mommy.com/

booster seat giveaway

I am definately a car seat fanatic. I practice extended rear face for as long as possible. I also keep my children in boosters for a very long time. I saw this giveaway recently and thought this booster looked fantastic http://www.3garnets2sapphires.com/2009/08/giveaway-review-monterey-expandable.html. Even my tall children could fit in this well beyond the reaquired age of four years in our state. It looks very comfy too. You can buy one from http://www.onestepahead.com/home.jsp?siteId=117. I know I am hoping to win this one in the giveaway, however!!

Boppy pillows

So can you believe that I am now breastfeeding my 5th child and with the first four i never had a Boppy pillow? I heard people rave about them but never had one myself. I didn't get one for my first. There was so much else to get. Then my second came along. My first was a boy, the second a girl. So although most of my big ticket baby items were getting used a second time, there was still a lot of clothing that needed bought plus a couple things like a double stroller. Then I get to having my third and I sort of figured if I didn't have the item by then I probably didn't really need it. My fourth had some major breastfeeding issues we had to overcome in the beginning. I think most people would have given up. Good thing I am stubborn. But I could have really used one of these then. There is a great giveaway right now for a Boppy. I have entered and really hope to win so my 5th, a newborn now, gets to enjoy it along with me. Check out the giveaway. http://myfourmonkeysproductreviews.blogspot.com/2009/08/nursing-mommy-celebration-giveaway-6.html

great giveaway

I am so bad for not keeping up with this blog like I should. i can't imagine why I don't get to it ( 5 kids including a newborn, a husband that travels all the time, 2 dogs, 3 cats, 2 rabbits etc). But I just had to talk about this amazing giveaway. Its an awesome baby shower for your little one. All of us mommies who are on their 3rd, 4th, 5th child or more knows the sad reality that people just don't get as excited about you being pregnant and having another child as they did those first couple times. When my 3rd child was about to be born my Brother in Law stated that he would not be planning on coming to the hospital to visit the new baby as "this is your 3rd kid, you just can't expect people to keep getting excited when you have so many"!!! So take a chance at giving your baby a little shower of their own!!
