Besides Fat Free Milk and Low Fat yogurt (it is so hard to find full fat yogurt) I don't do low fat food. I prefer the real stuff. Tuesday I tried the Skinny Cow Mint Ice Cream Sandwich and it was so yummy. I could not tell that it was low fat at all. The ice cream was creamy and the chocolate was so tasty. I really could not taste the difference between the Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches and the ones we usually buy. I also tried the Cookies 'N Cream version. It was wonderful but I have say the Mint is my favorite, Of course that might be do to the fact that Mint Chip Ice Cream is one of my favorite flavors!! I would recommend the Skinny Cow Ice Cream treats to anyone, if you are watching what you eat or not. Next I will have to try some of their other ice cream treats, Cones, Dippers and Fudge Bars.

First we skated together (I was the only Mom to skate the whole time) but after a little while she wanted to skate by herself. She slowly made her way around. She had fun until a little boy she did not know tried to say "Hello." She skated with me the rest of the time, even during the kid race. At the end of the race all of the kids won a lime green slushies.
Princess a had so much fun and can't wait to go back.

Princess A loves making books. I usually take two or three sheet of paper, fold in half and staple twice on the fold (near the top and bottom). Princess G loves making books too! Princess A draws all of the pictures in her book and sometimes dictates the story to someone to write down. Other times she just remembers the story and loves to read them over and over. The girls make so many books they each have a library of the books they have written. I sometimes checkout some of their books but I have to make sure I return them in time or I get in trouble (I can't check out any new books from them.)

A local company, that hosts tea parties in people homes, was the sponsor. The owner came around and gave the girls a few pointers in etiquette.
Notice Princess A has her pinkie up, well sort of.

She used a sheet of stickers we picked up at the fair (all of them are about lambs.) The stickers were nice and long and thin. I held the rolls together while she used the stickers to hold them together. She then used Disney Princess stickers to make it extra pretty. After she made one for herself she made another for her sister. I wonder if she remembered the set Princess A made in school last fall.

Princess G made mommy and baby worms/snakes on hers (the second one). Princess A then asked me "Mommy, do you think a mommy would like a sparkly diamond like this for a present or something?" Then when Daddy got home (and I was 2 feet away) she showed him "Here is Mommy's present we made for Mother's Day. Do you think she will like it Daddy?" Last night she made me something at her Daisy meeting. This morning she told me it was a tissue box with paper inside but that she couldn't tell me what they read. The gift she made me at school I helped her make. They came home today and she told me not to look at the wrapped gift so I won't know what's inside. Too funny. She can never keep a surprise. When ever she has a gift for a person she always tells them everything but one detail, as if that one detail is what will surprise them. My husband's gift to me will stay a surprise if I can sign for it without looking at the return address when FedEx tries to deliver it again. (I was only gone from the house 20 minutes and that is when they tried to make the delivery!)

I nursed both of my girls. Whe you nurse your babies you become their only food source and then mom is always on call. Pumping your own breast milk means that someone else can feed your baby sometimes. Before we moved we lived near my Mom and since I pumped my husband and I were able to go out for a few dates. We saw Terminator 3 and on another night we went out to dinner. I personally never had a problem nursing in public but a friend did. She would pump so that when she went out she could feed her baby without actually nursing in public. Evenflo has launched a new and improved breast pump, the Evenflo Comfort Select Performance Breast Pump.
From the Comfort Select Performance Breast Pump site

Mom Central has a special web page dedicated to the Evenflo Comfort Select Performance Breast Pump where moms can share breast pumping tips. Every mom that shares a tip will be entered in a giveaway to win one of three Evenflo Comfort Select Performance Breast Pumps! Hurry, the giveaway ends May 4.
My tip would be to relax when you nurse. With Princess A my arm was always tense and tight against my body. I was always getting blocked ducts. Once I relaxed my arm and left a little room between my arm and body I stopped getting blocked ducts.
Thank you Mom Central for this review and giveaway opportunity.
Now when I first heard the word KaBOOM I thought it was going to be a cleaning product sold by that guy that yells. I love his commercials! Instead it is even better!! KaBOOM is a great site that list play spaces for kids that are rated by other Moms. What a great way to find play spaces in your own area and when you are traveling. I know when I first move to an area it is hard to know where are the great places to take your kids. Even harder is when you are on vacation or visiting friends and family that don't have kids. What I also love it that they have pictures of the play spaces. It really helps to know if your kids would like that particular play space by getting a look at it. I know I had a hard time finding a playground with a swing when we first moved here, since then I have found a couple but it took a while!
KaBOOM is trying to list 10,000 play spaces in 100 days. For every play space entered into the KaBOOM! database on behalf of the Mom Central team (that is the team I am on), $1 will be donated to Jumpstart, a non-profit that brings at-risk preschool children and caring adults together to improve literacy. I have a whole list of playgrounds I will be adding, I just have to remember to take a picture. So what are you waiting for I know you have a great list of places you take your kids to. Click on over to KaBOOM to add them!!
