Just Between Friends Sale Tulsa - ad

The good people at Just Between Friends-Tulsa (      Gave my sister and I passed to their presale on Saturday. My sister goes religiously to their sales. I hadn't been to one in quite a while because my kids are the size of grown people. I know!!

So, with my $50 gift certificate in hand and our presale passes, Rachel and I set about going to shop.

I really only had one thing that my niece requested: high heel shoes.

Should be easy enough ... Except ... There were a LOT to choose from. You know, a six year old considers pretty much anything that's not a flat to be a high heel, right? My sister, playing the part of momma and not aunt, had a much more practical list.

A few hours later, with my high heels and tap shoes in tow (what? Every kid who doesn't live with me needs tap shoes!), we walked out with the cutest clothes and accessories and books and games for my niece. Okay, fine, the games were for me.

So, how far does your dollar go? Well, we paid an average of $4.95 per tag. Pretty good deal, right? Wait ... It's better ... Probably half of our tags were multiple items: shirt and jeans, three pair of leggings, four tops! Amazing, right?

The Just Between Friends event runs this week at the Tulsa Expo Square. Grab your list and get your kiddos some awesome clothes at super prices!

Sponsored: Wrapy

My friends at Wrapy asked if I were interested in trying out one of their awesome baby wraps. Since my baby is twelve years old and almost as tall as I am, I really didn't have a use for a baby wrap. But, my great friend, Emily, had just had her sweet baby. So, I told Wrapy to send one my way--Emily and her sweetness and I would give it a whirl.

Now, when my kids were little, I'm sure people were wrapping babies, but my kids were always so squirmy and didn't like being held a whole lot (unless they were going to sleep or just waking up), so I had no idea how this thing would work or even if the baby would like it.

Before we get to the nuts and bolts of it, let me just cut to the chase: Emily and her sweet baby loved it!

Prior to the Wrapy, Emily had a baby carrier that was cumbersome and had some use issues in that it wasn't user friendly at all. The idea of wearing her baby was appealing to Emily, especially with two little helpers who are on the go. (Aren't they cuties?!)

So, I met with Emily and we studied the Wrapy and after understanding the logistics, Emily put the Wrapy on and was wearing her baby in under a minute.

So easy! Everyone is happy with the wrappy and Emily feels like she can keep up with all three of her sweeties without anything slowing her down.

Plus, who wouldn't want to have a cute baby as the coolest accessory, no matter what season!

This product is ASTM F2907 certified.  It's an international safety standard used in the US for wraps, slings, pouches, carrier shirts and many hybrid carriers.

You can order it through Amazon, where the reviews confirm what Emily and I find to be true--it's a great product!

Poop and other things parents need to talk about

Y'all know I love to share and overshare until people start to squirm. I firmly believe the by sharing the things that make us crazy, give us gray hair and make us want to hang ourselves and others by our toenails need to be talked about. (Remember? I went on the Dr. Oz show and told e'r'one how I peed in the shower.)

And those of you who overshare with me? Well, I love you just as much as I love talking about unmentionables. 

My friends, Norine Dworkin-McDaniel and Jessica Ziegler, are the brains behind the incredibly funny and oft inappropriate (in a good way) Science of Parenthood. And... AND... they've written an amazingly funny and laugh-out-loud parenting guide. Well, ya know, it's more helpful than that "What To Expect" book that I sit on to help my sciatica.

I love these gals and their words and especially their pictures for so many reasons. The very least of these reasons is that it's funny. The very greatest of these reasons is that it's honest.

They have taken the things of parenting that make us scratch our heads and wonder why we ever thought we were capable of molding and shaping and forming another human being into a productive adult and made it something we can all grin and giggle about.


I love these ladies (and not just because they've mentioned me on their site). I love them because they've taken our every thought and made it scientific and funny at the exact same time. I can go to them and know that I'll not only end up laughing, but I'll feel a helluva lot better about the best bad job I know how to do as a parent.

My hubby and I not in this gig alone.

We're in the same boat as every other parent ... good news is that our on-ship entertainment is funny as, well ... our irrational need to be away from our kids and have them within arms length at the exact same time.

Do yourself a favor--because you know you're getting a tin of dusting powder and another coffee mug for Christmas--give yourself this book. (Click either link to order.) Then lock yourself in the bathroom with your favorite drink and read the whole thing, cover to cover. You deserve it!
