Teriffic Tip Thursday

So for all you Cloth diapering mama's that use Bum Genius.
I just called them to see how I went about replacing the tabs on my "all in one's" because after two babies* they have worn down. They said they would send me the tabs and the laundry tab....for FREE!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it, surly she was incorrect in saying free, but no my ears didn't deceive me.....sending me 8 for free. I will get to fix 6 diapers up and have two on hand for spares.
Let me tell you if you want a great quality diaper and GREAT customer Bum Genius from Cotton Babies.

*fixing for a potential third or maybe for a lucky friends hand me downs stash. As of right now they will just get fixed and sit in a drawer....tick tock till a decision is made. Smile.

Wordy Wednesday....or before I forget to write it down.

So every night during bedtime I tell my kids how wonderful they are....I mention this often during the day but at night time we talk about what a great day it was, how well they did at something that particular day, what we struggled with but overcame and just how great they are...that they will "change the world" someday. So as I have this discussion with Campbell tonight, she lying sweetly in her crib. Looks up at me when I say "Campbell I just know you are going to change the world, you are going to do something amazing!" She responds with "yes mommy I am going to put a diaper on it, I change the world."

From the mouth of babes and IF only it could be that easy. Enjoy your night everyone

Praying for Stellan is what is on my mind this Sunday evening as I listen to my little ones fall off to dreamland. He is set to have surgery this Tuesday. Please keep this family and sweet boy in your hearts and on your mind. This is week four of being in the hospital and he is now in Boston where hopefully they will be able to work miracles with God's blessings on this already "miracle" baby.
Thank you.

Prayers for Stellan

I got this information off of my MOPS mom's board and I thought I had to share it.

Free Barbie DVD. Not a catch in site. No charge for shipping. Just tell Mattel you want it.
Takes 12-14 weeks for delivery but heck it's free right.

I figure they must be doing some sort of pilot program with Barbie that they are willing to give away a ton of DVD's.

Future Sun Devils!

I have been on vacation in AZ visiting my parents and have had so much fun. More pictures and stories to come once I get home but I had to post this picture. I got it off of Beth's site. I so enjoyed catching up with old friends today and meeting their babies. Especially one famous little baby too! I got to hold and meet Abigail (she's the red head looking down) for the first time. Oh she is precious! Thanks to her mama who with another great friend of mine got a wild hair and decided to drive with three little people to AZ from CA. We than had to have Beth meet up with us today for a bloggy world six degrees type of situation. Today was great and it was a great last full day to my trip. Thanks Girls and babies!
