"That sounds wonderful good!"

Brody was referring to Mac and Cheese for lunch but for me and most moms, it's all about a good deal or better yet....FREE!! I'm sure all of us are feeling the economic crunch in one way or another. My husband and I prefer that as long as we are able, I will remain a stay-at-home mom. I am so blessed to be able to do that and am well aware that not a lot of moms are! Well, in my own little way I want to help our situation. I have discovered so many ways to save money on the web... well I'm just so excited about it that I had to share it with the rest of you moms!! Have you ever bought a brand of diapers that leaked and then you can't return them? Or bought a snack food that tasted terrible? Or a beauty product that didn't work? Well, the list goes on and on, doesn't it?! There are several sites that link you to companies that will send you free samples of hundreds of items and they change often!!!
GoFreebies "Links to Free Stuff" will send you a daily e-mail with all the new and featured freebies of the day and they have a Daily Prize Winner for a $10 Amazom.com gift certificate.
Freeflys says "Cheap is good but free is better!" Today I requested a Free Sample of Quaker® Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond True Delights! Sounds yummy! They also have soooo many catagories to choose from and will send you e-mails to remind you that you need to get more free stuff. I just joined another one today called Shop4Freebies that had a lot of good stuff for free. I ordered hair care products and rice cake samples and GoodNites which will come in handy for my 3 year old. I also requested a potty training DVD that has songs and stuff to make going potty fun!!! Is that possible? I guess I'll find out when it comes. I'll share some more ways to save money and earn gift certificates next time. Let's all continue to enjoy the party!!

"I'm joining the party" or "Brody, please don't stand on your brother's head."

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Okay, so there are words I NEVER thought I would hear come out of my mouth. Like, "Because I said so!" but that's for the obvious reason that we all hated to hear that from our own parents mouths. Then there's the words I never thought I'd hear for a totally different reason. One of those reasons is that I just never thought of certain words ever linking together in one sentence. I was on the phone and didn't really hear myself until my friend started laughing and then I thought to myself, "Oh my gosh! Did I actually just hear myself say, "Brody, please don't stand on your brother's head."? I did! Did I? NO! Yes, I really did! Here's the thing that's really crazy to me. Brody saw what he wanted and the way to get taller was to stand on his little brother's head. So did he see a stool in his mind? Or did he see his brother's head? Did he even stop to think about what he was doing? According to Brody, nothing was going through his head. How is that possible?! Is this a boy thing? And then I am reminded that I started this blog because of the crazy and wonderful things I hear, coming not only out of my own mouth, but out of his. What memories! Oh, the joys that children bring. Without them could we laugh at ourselves as much as we do? Could we laugh, in general, as much as we do? So, this time my thoughts are not about what he said but about what I said and maybe in future I'll reveal some more of my own silliness!

Now, I am going to join the Ultimate Blog Party 2009 and have some fun meeting other bloggers! Won't you join me in some silliness? You might even win some prizes whether you're a blogger or not!
