Thursday blog hop Toddler style!

Hosted by The Life of a Sippy Cup Mom, Family and Life in Las Vegas, and Crazy about my Baybah.

This week’s topic is  : Extended Family!

Tell us about your toddler's favorite extended family members! 

A loves her family. All of her family. But of all the family members there are two that she asks for daily!

She starts the day, EVERY day, asking for her Nama and if she cant go over to house right away panic ensues. Lucky Nama is pretty accommodating and lives right next door. This is my Mother in Law and I adore this women. 

Next is Uncle Billy. This is my youngest Brother. He just got back from a 2ish month cross country trip. I'm very happy he had fun but we all missed him. A  especially. He bought her a sticker map that she would mark the states he was in at that time. He is going to make a great Daddy someday.

Toy Baby Sling Giveaway from Li'l Peeper Keepers!!! Ends 10/31


I am absolutely so excited about this. We are giving away a toy baby sling from Li'l Peeper Keepers. These are super nice slings. She has full size slings, wraps, and other things too. I LOVE wearing C! I wasn't really good at it with A but I've improved. A has been so curious about absolutely everything I'm doing with C. From breastfeeding to babywearing to changing her diapers. She wants to be a Big Girl just like Mommy. This was just the perfect item for her to "help" me review.

When I first talked to the woman who created Li'l Peeper Keepers I was struck by how nice and helpful she was. She even addressed the package to A who was SUPER excited to get mail. It was her first package ever! When she opened it was a little confused at first "This is too small for C!". I told her it was for her to wear with her babies and she just started jumping up and down.

"I can feed my baby mommy milk with it on?"

"Sure, and you can wear her around and play outside and keep her close to you."

"Just like you and C?"

"Yep just like us!"


As you can tell it was a big hit with her. Please excuse her messy face :) The PB and J sandwich for lunch was extremely messy :)

We got lots of smiles from people today at the library with me wearing C and A wearing her baby holding my hand. I felt like such a proud Mama today!

When talking to Rebecca I asked for something in Yellow or Pink which are A's favorite colors. This fabric is yellow with cute little bunnies on it. Perfect for my little Animal lover!

The stitching is very well done and the shoulder sits just right on A with enough room to for her to grow into the sling.

I give this toy sling a A+++++! It couldn't have made my daughter happier and anything (within reason LOL) that makes her happy makes me a happy Mama!

So what do you say? Do you want to win one for your favorite little princess? Niece, cousin, friends daughter, strange little girl on the street? Come on, you know you want to! You can get up to 8, Yes I did say 8, entries to win! Here is what you can do.

Thats right it is International Babywearing Week! October 6th - 12th 2010. Do you wear your child? Why the heck not? I adore wearing C around in her Moby Wrap. She is so snug and cosy in there. It is the quickest way to calm her, get her to sleep, and just to snuggle with me. Some of the reason's I LOVE babywearing are C cries less, Its great for her mental and physical development, Hands free to chase my 2.5 year old (who I also wear given the chance) and its great for my PPD! I have gotten a lot of baby wearing info from They seem like a great group of mom's. I hope to see many women or even men out wearing their children this week. Be it in a wrap, a sling, a carrier, or a pouch! Come and join me in spending cuddle time with our children while on the go or just moving about the house.

I really dont get it.

The other day I was in a well known (at least in Ohio) children's consignment shop after being out and about all morning with the kiddos. It was WELL past nap time for A. I had dropped off some things for them to look at earlier in the day and was checking back to see what they took and pick up the rest. I also had to pick up several pair of pants for A since she has grown *gasp* 3 inches this past summer.

I had C in her Moby sling and A was suppose to be walking beside me. UMMMM not so much. A was done listening for the day I guess because while trying to look though the pants she kept running away from me and getting into other things. Normally my oldest is pretty well behaved in stores but like I said before *WAY* past nap time.

And then C woke up and started screaming for food. Normally I would just bust out the tata and hook her up but I couldn't do that because I was busy chasing A around the store. I'm now mad, hot, tired and cranky. I found 2 pair of pants and get in line.

"A we are almost done, just stand here with Mommy for one more minuet!"

"NO!" and goes to run away again.

"YOU NEED TO LISTEN!" and I swatted her ONE time on the bum.

Then A decided she had misbehaved and started crying and wanted me to hold her and hug her and tell her it was alright. Which I did!

You would think I beat my child since-less from the looks I got from most of the other mothers in that store (one was super nice and gave me her place next in line!) All the while C is still screaming for food.

I was telling my dad about this the next day and he brought up a great point.

In the 1980's when I was a kid (Did I just give away my age??? LOL) it was EXPECTED to parents discipline their children in public.

When did we lose that? I'm not saying beat your children. But don't let them run around misbehave in public and be disruptive. There is a HUGE difference between beating your child and spanking your child.

My daughter got her butt spanked in public. She reacted the way she always does when she gets in trouble by me. LOOKS TO ME FOR COMFORT! My daughter is NOT scared of me, she does not run from me after I spank her, SHE RUNS TOO ME!

My girls look to me for discipline and guidance. What are we telling our children if we don't provide them that? How will they know to teach THEIR children those things if they don't know them?

When M and I decided to have children we knew that we were taking responsibility for these lives. Not just to keep them alive and healthy in body. They would also need us to teach them RESPECT, KINDNESS, LIMITS, AND MORALS!

When did parents stop teaching their children these things? Why am I the abnormal one who sets limits for my child and dishes out consequences even in a public setting?

I am disgusted with parents over this! GET A GRIP PEOPLE! You are NOT going to go to jail for tapping your child once on the bumm for misbehavior in public. IN FACT, Most police officers I know (my dad was a cop I know a lot!) would shake your hand for keeping you children out of "their" system.

If you have something other then spanking that works with your child by all means use it! I most of the time (not all she gets her butt spanked at home also) use timeouts when we are home but that was not feasible at the moment.

I would never presume to tell someone how to discipline their child (unless it was a REAL beating) when out in public. What right did those mothers have to judge me because my parenting style got results!

*off soap box for the moment*

And BTW, A slept all the way home and C got fed as soon as we got to the car.

New family members

This week we finally went to meet little M. He is 7 weeks younger then C. What a difference those 7 weeks make! He was born weighing more then her but WOW you would never guess that now. He is very long and feels fragile compared to C. He is not I'm just use to a chunk LOL. He has the MOST beautiful skin on any baby I have ever seen. I was just amazed. Even more amazing...HE WAS TRYING TO ROLL OVER! at a week and a half! My chunk just watched everything taking it all in LOL. She is too demanding to roll over! If it needs done Mommy or Sister can do it LOL.

And next we have A's new pets! Meet her 2 new African Dwarf Frogs Shooter and Bob (Bob is the smaller of the two). Yes she came up with the names all by her self. She kept asking me for a kitten but Daddy is anti kitten right now and Mommy does not want a divorce. Her fish that Tapa bought her 6 months ago are "on vacation in Hawaii" and have been since the day after we got them. These frogs are supposedly low maintenance. Feed every other day, clean water every 6 months (we will see about that one! Might be more then that) no pet hair to clean up. I'm not seeing a down side here.
