So I did it, I made a button for my blog and would love it if you could all add it to your blog, you can do that anonymously (Christy) and I would also love if you could all become followers and subscribers. This will enable me to prove to the companies I am approaching of the size of my following. I really need all the help I can get so please please please do it for me :)
I started a new blog at www.funandfunkymommy.blogspot.com and I need followers and subscribers. I want it to be a giveaway blog so I need as many as I can get to start emailing the companies. I would be so grateful if you all could add my button, subscribe and or become a follower. Hopefully there will be lots of great stuff to win soon!!!
Tell me how you think my new blog looks! Its called Fun and Funky Mommy email@example.com, be honest. Everyone else can let me know too, does it look good? Does it look silly? Be honest!
The TODAY PRESENT PARTY is a great way for kids to have some fun and for families to connect. Every kid attending will create yummy works of art by decorating cupcakes that they will take with them as a present to give away to someone else, teaching them about the importance of giving back and how little gestures can make a big difference in someone's day. Robin from One Big Earth, Jen from the Sugarheads and Karen from McKinnon Photography conceived of the idea because they wanted to do something fun and meaningful to thank all those that support our endeavors and are all big fans of building our community. They also all like throwing a little magic out there! Of course, as well as creating cupcakes to give you will also receive a little gift from them just for attending. Cupcakes to indulge in and eat right away will also be available for sale at the party.
My favorite things about this event is that it is FREE!
So mark your calendar, in a big red marker.
Where: McKinnon Photography studio When: May 23 - 11 a.m to 3 p.m.
OK so I started a new blog for my contests so that I can keep it all separate and organized. Feel free to check it out http://www.countrymommiescontests.blogspot.com/ and become a follower, or subscriber to get a head start on the contests, I am working on a button now! Thanks!
I am thinking I want to start reviewing products for kids and babies. I have no idea how many people read my blog and I am wondering if I even have any readers now that would enter these contests. Would you enter? Leave me a comment and let me know. I am going to get to work tomorrow on contacting some sponsors to see what we can make happen!

Well when I picked Kristina up from the bus stop on Thursday she had a note for me. It was labeled to the parents of Kristina Watson. I opened it up and read that a little boy had overheard Kristina saying F'ing Bit**s to a few girls and had run into the school to tell the teacher.
Apparently the girls hadn't been playing with Kristina for a few days and kept running away from her, poor thing. And this day they pinkie promised Kristina that they would play with her. They changed there minds I guess and ran away, so in a bout of anger Kristina says she said Fricking! Not as bad but still obviously not good.
Kristina had to go down to the principals office and discuss what had happened. She told her side, and they discussed ways on reacting differently and then was given the note to fill in and take home.
Well that night Kristina and I had a long talk about it and what to do next time. She seemed to really understand it all and she was going to meet with the school counselor the next day with all of the girls and try to sort it all out.
Kristina has been having some meetings with this counsellor since everything that happened with Laila and its been going quite well. She had been giving Kristina all sorts of tools to work with on being a good friend and such.
I called the following day to talk to the counsellor and make sure that they knew that I was obviously concerned and to decide on a game plan to move forward. She had already had the meeting with the girls and it went very well she said. She is going to continue to work with Kristina and the girls on teaching them how to deal with frustration, being a good friend, and all those little grey areas!
I was very pleased though to hear from the counsellor and she thinks that Kristina is a very kind hearted, generous, and loving little girl. Its nice to hear that from someone who isn't biased. It seems we will always be working with our kids on things, the teaching never stops, but we are doing a good job!
I love baby and children's products, it's just a part of me. I used to own a childrens consignment store and I loved it. I had to sell it when my now 22 month old was 4 months to spend more time at home with him and my 7 year old daughter. I sure miss the kids stuff though, who wouldn't these days with all the neat stuff companies, especially moms, are coming up with. If you have a product you would like reviewed please send me an email, I am PR friendly firstname.lastname@example.org I would love to hear from you! My family loves trying out new products and so do I. I hope you enjoy my blog and please feel free to send any questions or comments to me as well.
