Did you know that Crocs made cute little shoes like these? I surely didn't, but I was intrigued to go and visit the site again when I received a coupon code for 20% off your purchase through April 15, 2009 (not including outlet items)! They have some really cute shoes, really great designs, and they must be comfortable if they are coming from Crocs! Check out the Crocs site, and enter code VIPPROMO139 during the checkout process!

All this in a morning of a 2.5 year old! He survived not eating at all on Sunday, sitting in Dallas traffic on a Monday morning, and getting poked and prodded! He's a little trooper (and I am sure much better behaved than many adults)! Nothing apparent was found, so looks like it won't be an easy answer, but at the same time, nothing so terrible that he won't be "normal" someday! Yeah! He woke up and immediately ripped off the oxygen mask, pulled off the ET finger (pulse ox), and attempted to get the IV out of his hand before we convinced him it was better that the nurse take that out! He was allowed to go home about 15 minutes after he woke up, and being the smart little guy that he is asked to stop at Target to go toy shopping on the way home! He is now the proud owner of a set of Sesame Street vehicles, and a cool new trash truck!
I found a few really great giveaways going on this week, so I just had to share them with you! Leave me a comment if you know of any other really great ones too! I can always add more to the list!
Saving Money for a Wedding is giving away an Almost Diamonds CZ wedding set here, this would be the perfect alternate ring set for working out or travel!
Mommies with Cents is giving away a LoveSac here. We have a large bean bag chair and love it, but it was a hand-me-down. It would be nice to have one that matches the furniture!
The Nerd Family is giving away a copy of The Perfect Baby Handbook: A Guide for Excessively Motivated Parents here. I don't know about you, but I could use some humor when it comes to raising kids! I can't wait to read Infants and Their Little Anxiety Attacks! This is one book that will go on my wish list if I don't win it!

somedays you just have to watch them sleep...and listen to them breathe...just to know they will be okay!
...somedays you realize that you wish you could just turn back time to those days when they were so tiny that they fell asleep in your arms and didn't have a care in the world...somedays you just have to watch them sleep just to listen to the tiny little breaths...and hope that the decisions you are making for them will not traumatize them for life!
Tomorrow, our 2.5 year old will be going to the hospital to endure his second endoscopy (albeit by a different doctor) and a colonoscopy...he is just to young to be dealing with all this I keep thinking to myself, and then I realize that if we don't find an answer to what ails him, he will be the kid that's different and like any parent, I don't want him to be the kid that's different...and I wonder where the happy medium is! We have agreed that this will be the last test for a long time, so hopefully there will be some definitive answer as to why our beautiful 2.5 year old son who has graced a billboard in Times Square New York has a bucket for a lovey!
There comes a point where you begin to break as a parent, and I think today might have been that point...you would think that there would be a better way to prepare a child for these procedures than stuff that is too nasty for an adult to stomach. He is an amazing child...I can say that...he lights up a room whenever he walks in (and that's not just the mommy talking) but that doesn't repair the damage done by forcing liquid laxatives down his throat (too much yelling, not enough loving). He had already made it through an entire day with only a liquid diet (popsicles and jello) and then to end it with all the fighting to follow doctor's orders did not allow us to shine as parents.
At least we were able to laugh with him when it was all over as he sat in a bubble bath when we told him that he can hold Mimi's hand and tell her it will be okay as she swallows the last bit of the gallon of nasty in the future! He laughed and gave us big kisses covering us with bubbles... a better end to a terrible hour!
I know he will make it through tomorrow and I am hopeful that we will have answers, so that he will stop throwing up all the time! Until then, thank you for listening (well reading)...sometimes you just have to put it out there to make sure that you are in fact loving them as they need to be loved! Please keep him in your thoughts or prayers since he will be under anesthesia for up to two hours...
Kelly who said "I love a caramel macchiato and on really down days a nice mocha frap! Yummy! Thanks so much!" at Enroute to Life was the winner of the $15 Starbucks Gift Card!
I only had three comments on the Glade coupons (probably because some really great printable coupons came out too - or at least I will assume that's what happened!)...they will get a little something special along with their coupons (I'll let you know once I figure it out), but they were all winners!

Okay, weeknight parties are rough, even rougher when you are working, and even worse when your 10-month old is recovering from a high fever! With the help of an amazing friend, we were able to pull off a weeknight get together for some friends in town for work! Phew! Even when you use up the old party paper goods, its amazing how many dishes remain! I was hoping to stay up late and search the web for good deals, party a little online during the Ultimate Blog Party, and see what my online friends are up too! Oh well, there's still tomorrow, I think I'm going to bed! Have a great night, a glass of wine, and win something! I will live vicariously through you!

Our oldest son received this retro-looking tricycle from his Aunt, and we have decided that it is truly the coolest tricycle ever. The seat is low to the ground like Hot Wheels, the handlebars are easy to reach, it is very stable even when your child likes to pedal while looking backwards, and it even has cool leather tassels and a bell!
Right now, Amazon has the Schwinn Roadster 12-Inch Trike in red on sale for $69.72! It comes in three colors, we have a blue one - but at 23% off and free shipping, this is really a great deal and summer will be here soon!
We are buying this red one for our almost 10-month old and putting it back for when he gets older because we know he will want one just like his big brother!

Depending on the age of your child, we wrap up the wooden train and the movie separetly because our son just loves opening presents!
