Soda Stream love from The Mommy-Files





Before I get to today's post, the newest giveaway will be posted later on tonight and it's a tasty one, so be sure and get your entries in!
Well, the potty training thing is still going. No one has pulled their hair out yet, but A has gone from "Puh-tee Momma, Puh-tee" to eying me warily and hiding in some corner while doing her business. Then she runs to find me and says "Ew, ca-ca." while handing me a diaper.
My husband says to 'look on the bright side. She saves you the trip of getting a diaper', well I think I'd sacrifice that walk of ten feet to just get her to go!
We also got her Elefun to work, and if you're new to this blog, you won't know of the blood, sweat and tears that went into getting that little piece of joy. (We're talking nasty emails to reps. of Hasbro, exchanges in the dead of night, all sorts!) I figured, since it works, maybe I could somehow incorporate that into her "potty" routine. Heck - at this point I'm ready to bribe my daughter to go - isn't that what parenting is made up of anyways?
On a change the subject brighter note, I may be encouraging my son to go drag, lol. I'm kidding of course, the politically correct term is "gender confused". Take a look ...

I personally think he makes a really cute girl.
One last thing, and as this was the title of this post, I'd probably better get to it. I follow this cute blog called "The Mommy-Files" and how I found it was quite interesting. I had entered a Soda Stream giveaway at Pat's blog, Here and There (I wasn't the lucky winner) but it got me thinking. I had a soda stream as a kid, and really wanted one for my kids to enjoy, so I started a search of "blogs giveaway Soda Stream" and the only real gem, at that time, was "The Mommy-Files". I checked around her blog, I liked what I saw, followed her blog (of course entered the "Soda Stream" giveaway) and all that I could to make her a regular 'blog read'. (She's a great read, her button is to the right, so go check her blog out, if you're not already a follower) Annnnyway - long story short - I WON THE GIVEAWAY!
Yep, so I'm feeling pretty darn happy today, and giving a shout-out to a great blog, with great giveaways (other than mine, lol.)
Also, thank you to all the people leaving some great name choices, my sister in law will have quite the selection, and again - if she chooses the name you listed, I'll be sending you something (after getting your details) so eye out for that. Remember the giveaway listed for tonight - have a GREAT weekend!

good luck with the potty training...i have enough trouble getting my cats to go to the litterbox (if it's dirty they go in front of it instead) so i can't even imagine training a kid...
