Way back when Moses was parting the Red Sea I was potty train my oldest child. After using M&M candies to bribe her and washing out I-don’t-know- how-many pairs of poopy panties I had a lightbulb moment. I figured out how to potty train my daughter with an alarm clock. It worked like a charm and it became the tried and true method of potty training with my other children. Here’s how it works.
Coupon scams that involve cramming are huge! Be very careful which websites you use to get coupons from. Recently I visited a site while looking for fast food coupons. I found a good and went to print it out. It wouldn’t print. The page acted like it was loading. Then suddenly a pop up appeared telling me that if I entered my cell phone number they would send me a text to verify I was human and then the coupon would become printable.

Coming up with fun and interesting sandwich ideas for kids can be frustrating to parents especially for families living in the fast lane. Boredom easily sets in when kids are forced to eat the same sandwich day in and day out, plus kids and parents have different ideas on what’s healthy and what’s not. The key to a great kid sandwich is to think like a kid and try to remember what you would have liked on a sandwich as a kid. Here are a few sandwich ideas to help accommodate your kid while still providing proper nutrition.
My family loves this dish and best of all I love how easy and cheap it is. I’m not sure why but even though this recipe germinated in my brain for quite some time I didn’t actually start feeding it to my family until 2 years after I came up with it.

Now however, I’m afraid to admit I might not be as cool as they think I am; not after seeing the current generation of teenage girls anyway.
I came across an article recently about alternatives to spanking at the positive parenting website and as soon as I read the title I was flooded with memories of spankings received
When I was growing up my parents believed in whoopin’s. I never even knew it was called spanking until I was in my teens. I remember back when I was about 10 or so getting my butt whooped while on vacation back east.
My mother had the knack for tearing up my backside, as she called it. She could find the skinniest, flimsiest tree branch and strip the bark and leaves in mere seconds. I learned from her that there is technique in
In my quest to free my house from the pet hair blanket I picked up this little gadget by Pledge called the Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair. I was a skeptic at first because I normally keep a few sticky paper rollers around the house and I have tried and exhausted all other methods.
I could not believe how easily the Pledge Pet Hair Fabric Sweeper removed all that hair. I went around and did the whole house. Amazing. I no longer have to lay a sheet over my comforter anymore. Several times a day I do a quick swipe with the fabric sweeper and pick up any accumulated hair.

Please don’t say breathing cause that’s not nice. Understandable, but not necessarily nice. I smoke. Nasty habbit, that, but I do. One of my pet peeves is someone – *cough my husband cough* not walking off with my lighter every 5 minutes.
