Have you seen the Vloggersations at OC Family? They are great and I’m in some of them!
This one is from about 2 months ago. We are giving parenting advice to Jen who is about to have her first baby. The vloggersation is a compilation of a few of us OC Family bloggers. If you only want to see me (Mom) my advice is at 39 seconds, 2:34, 3:19 & 5:30 and Jen says something nice about me at 4:30 (mom, you’ll want to hear it). It has to do with being an only child. (TIME Magazine just did a great write up about only children too!)
And if you don’t feel like clicking over, you can watch my uncut version below. WARNING: I talk about boobs and ugly babies.
What is the best/worst parenting advice you have received or given?
We have a little lady at home.
She’s pretty cool…
She falls asleep anywhere, and she dances to the rhythm of her own lil’ drummer…
She’s a girly girl and we treat her like… well… a princess. One with strict rules and boundaries… of course… lol!
She doesn’t know about slavery, hunger, strife or poverty. (We live in Orange County for goodness sake!) Unfortunately for little girls around the world bondage is a reality.
I was introduced to International Princess Project years ago while on staff at a local church. The organization is amazing and they are ACTUALLY making a difference in the lives of women in India though sewing. (Because sewing rules and you should totally start.)
Women who are rescued from brothels need some sort of occupation… Enter International PrincessTM Project. The women are trained to make some pretty kick a&$ stuff:
Don’t feel like changing out of your PJs? Buy some Punjammies at the International Princess Project shop!!!
Don’t need PJs? Just donate some cash-o-la here.
“Because every woman on earth deserves to be treated like a princess.”
Because more is better… especially when it comes to eating.
I didn’t eat 2 baskets of ribs all by myself over at Newport Rib company when I was 7 months preggers.
Nope, not me!
Hot Hubby and I didn’t stuff our faces then make the lamest “full tummy” joke ever pointing out my large belly to the waitress.
I’m not totally stumped by this awesome video from my favorite band.
And, I surely have never thought about how odd looking the lead singer is!!
I haven’t wasted my time on FB watching this deviously hysterical break-up video my hysterical cousin posted. (Where do you find these Elle!?!)
I didn’t just bid on the Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred on ebay then watch the ticker count down for the last 20 minutes of the auction while nursing Cy.
~Want to join in the “Not Me!” fun head on over to McMama.
~If you got something fun and blogged about it this week add to our “I got it at…” carnival…
…the lazy way!!
I’m sure I don’t clean the kiddos’ toys as much as I should but after they are really sick everything gets a once over.
Plop toys in a pillowcase then washer and dry with your regular wash.
Baby plastic toys can be washed in the top rack of the dish washer!
Why do I like clean toys…?
How do you clean toys??
