Multiple Babies Daddies

All of my kids are by my husband. I have a friend that had a little boy by her then boyfriend. She later got pregnant and had a little girl by her current boyfriend. Both of her kids took their father's last name. Since her oldest will be starting school soon, she is really embarrassed that they kids have different last names. I do not think this is something to be embarrassed about but would like get you guys opinion. I have however heard of women that have five or six children with 3 or 4 different fathers. Would you be embarrassed at this point?  If  you were not married and having a baby, would you give your baby your last name or the father's last name? How do you explain to your children why they have different last names? Read the below article at the below link and tell me if you agree or disagree.

I Knew Fast Food Was Bad But DANG!

I am not a fan of fast food. If I do go to a fast food restaurant I usually go to Chik fil A. I haven't done an extensive amount of research on the harmful effects of eating fast food but have read enough to make the choice to minimize the amount of fast food my family eats. For the past few years I have been on a quest to feed my family healthy foods without a lot preservatives and hormones. Don't get me wrong, I'm not over here raising my own cattle or anything. Heck I tried growing my own tomatoes but got too impatient. Reading the below article makes me glad I don't give my kids McDonald's nuggets. My husband on the other eats them like crazy. In fact, McDonalds is on my top 10 list of fast food places to avoid. According to the article, Mickey D's nuggets supposedly contain dimethylpolysiloxane, a form of silicone also used in cosmetics. They are also said to contain an an additive named tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ) which is a form of butane. Seriously, why in the world would I feed my family this crap.

I do however give my family Wendy's chicken nuggets on occasion. I am afraid of what I am going to find out when I research the mysterious components of their nuggets.  I don't think all foods served at fast food restaurants are bad for you. Mickey D's has healthier options such as oatmeal, grilled chicken wraps and their fruit parfait. Like I said before I haven't done an extensive amount of research to know for sure. Read the article and watch the video at the below links to learn more about the ingredients in McDonald's food. I will do more research and let you guys know what I find out.

Why Doesn't McDonalds Happy Meals Spoil?

How Do You Shower?

I was listening the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show on my way to work this morning and the topic of discussion was,"Do you use a washcloth when you take a shower?".  I thought the topic was amusing and funny. I have always used a washcloth in the shower but my husband didn't until we met. I was really surprised when he told me he never used one.  He told me he just rubs the bar of soap across his body to get clean. The choice to use a washcloth or not to use a washcloth really doesn't matter to me as long as you incorporate some soap into the mix. How many of you ladies use washcloths in the shower?

Im Back!

I've been away for a few days. I've had a cold and been working long hours.  I'm back now and have a lot of good posts coming.

To Kindle Or Not To Kindle?

To kindle or not to kindle is the question I am trying to answer. I love to read but I am kinda old fashion when it comes to reading.  I like to have the actual book and like to go to the bookstore and browse through the books.  There is a used bookstore by my house but the selection is very limited.  Since I don't have very much time to do this anymore because of our work schedules, I've been buying books from Amazon. The problem is that I can finish a good size book in a day or two.  I could order more than 2 books at a time but it can get kind of expensive.  My husband suggested I get a Kindle. I looked up the pros and cons of getting a Kindle but want to hear first hand from you ladies if you prefer to read via a actual book or via a Kindle.

Bored Out Of My Freakin Mind!

As a wife, mother and career woman I usually never have any quiet time to myself.  I have 3 little boys between the ages 1 and 5.  We were all supposed to go out today but since our 1 year old has a cold, my hubby took our 2 older boys to the movies to see Alvin and the Chipmunks. I thought I was going to enjoy this time "almost" to myself. The baby is still here but I timed his nap so that he goes to sleep while they are at the movies. So the baby is asleep and everyone else is gone. I should be in heaven right now but guess what, I am sooooo freaking bored! OH MY GOODNESS! I am sleepy but can't go to sleep. I already know that as soon as I fall asleep my baby is going to wake up.  What's worse is that I am sick of the Internet! LOL. I can't believe I'm saying that. LOL. What's ironic is that while I claim to be tired of the Internet I am writing this blog.  I never thought I would miss hearing the word "mommy" 1,000 times in 5 minutes. LOL. I guess I'm going log off and continue to watch more reruns of  "The Big Bang Theory".  Oh wait.....I hear the baby starting to wake up.  I have something to occupy my time now. LOL.

What's Your Favorite?

I have been working to increase my number of followers. In doing so, I began thinking about what I could add to my blog to make people return. I love when people start following me but I would also love for them to return.  This means that I need to give them something to make them come back. Let's face it, there are thousands of blogs out there. What do you do to get people to come back to your blog? What is your favorite blog and why?

One of my favorite blogs is Novice Mama. She creates comic strips filled with the adventures every mom goes through. I love it! I hope she doesn't get mad at me for mentioning her blog. I can always relate to her strips. My husband gets a kick out of them too.

My 3 Boys Are No Match For This Robot!

I have been meaning to write a post about this for awhile now.  As many of you know, I have 3 boys under the age of 6.  No matter how much I vacuumed, I could never keep the floor clean. Well that was the case until I got the iRobot 560 Roomba Vacuuming Robot, Black and Silver as a birthday present last September. My husband thought I was crazy when I asked for a vacuum cleaner for my birthday.  He did not understand why I would want this for a present.  Well, in my mind, I envisioned a spotless floor 24 hours a day. That's exactly what I got with the Roomba Vacuum Robot. This thing is awesome! It is pricey but it is worth the money. I got mine for $350.00 on Amazon.  It does a excellent job cleaning the floor and has sensors so it doesn't go down the stairs.  When the floor is clean it goes back to it's docking station.  This product has received great reviews on iRobot's website. This little robot has taken away one of my many household chores. When I get home from work the last thing I usually want to do is vacuum. Now I can set my Roomba to do it automatically. Ladies, I was not contacted to do this review nor am I getting paid to do it. I just wanted to help make your lives a little easier.

Preparing for Kindergarten

My oldest son will be starting kindergarten this year.  I am so excited for him and want make sure he is prepared for this new milestone. Listed below is a checklist of the things your little one should know before starting kindergarten. Don't get worried if your child doesn't know everything on the checklist.  All kids learn at different paces and hit milestones at different times.  What is most important for teachers is a healthy child that is ready to learn.
  1. Know the alphabet
  2. Know the difference between uppercase and lowercase letters
  3. Counting and number recognition.  Your child should be able to count to 10 at a minimum, although 20 is becoming more mainstream.
  4. Random letter recognition. This means your child actually knows her letters, instead of just memorizing the order of the alphabet.
  5. Pencil grip: If your child learns improper pencil grip, it's hard to unlearn it.

  7. Be able to focus: Listen and sit still for at least 15 minutes.

  20. Be able to recognize authority
  21. Manage bathroom needs
  22. Button shirts, pants, coats, and zip up zippers
  23. Begin to control oneself
  24. Separate from parents without being upset
  25. Speak understandably
  26. Talk in complete sentences of five to six words
  27. Look at pictures and then tell stories

So What If He's Married!

I don't know how I come up with these posts. I have always wondered why some women are attracted to married men. I actually stopped being friends with my best friend because she was dating a married man and then became pregnant with his baby. Well that wasn't the only reason but it was part of it. What can he possibly give you besides sex? Listed below are some of the reasons why I would never date a married man even if I wasn't married.

1. I believe it is immoral
2. I don't want to be responsible for breaking up a family.
3. I deserve to be number one in my man's life.
4. I don't want to catch a STD.
5. I dont want to have sex with someone knowing that he probably just had sex with his wife.
6. I know I deserve better.
7. I don't get my self worth from a man.
8. I wouldn't be able to look my kids in the eye. I want to be set a example for my kids.
9. I just think it's nasty.
10. God, fate or whatever you believe in wouldn't send you someone else's man.

So those are a few of the reasons I would never date a married man or even a man in a relationship. Listed below are some of the reasons I think women may date married men. Let me know if I way off base or if you have anything to add.

1. Lack of morals and values
2. They enjoy the attention from the married man.
3. They love the challenge.
4. They think that a married man will want to settle down with them.
5. They like the excitement of sneaking around.
6. They feel that the wife should be doing a better job of keeping her husband happy.
7. They only want sex and not a long term relationship.
8. A married man is the forbidden fruit.

Bottle Water Please

The next time you go to a restaurant or fast food establishment you may want to order a bottle water instead of a fountain drink. Why? Beacuase of the bateria and germs that  may be lingering in the plastic tubes or ice scoop of the of the ice maker and drink fountains.  One of the major causes of the bacteria is the employees failure to properly wash their hands. Some of the bacteria coming out of the drink machines contained coliform bacteria which indicates possible fecal contamination.  Can you say gross! Read the below articles for more details.

Spice Up Your Sex Life!

We went on a family vacation during Christmas holiday. We booked a one room suite but after booking it I started wondering where were we going to do the deed. LOL. The only option is the bathroom but that is not my ideal place.  Let's just say that the next time we book a trip we are going to get a 2 room suite. There's nothing like hearing a toddler banging on the door and screaming "Mommy! Mommy!" while you are trying to get your freak on! That's how I came up with the idea for this post. What are the most unusual places you have ever had sex? The below link lists the top 12 extreme places to have sex. Have you ever been adventuresome enough to try these?  Do you think you will try any of these one day? I will be honest, I can be kind of a prude so I try to spice things up and try it in a bathroom stall. It will have to be a really nice and clean one.  I don't even like using public bathrooms.

No More Embarrassing Odors After You Go Potty

As I was listening to the radio this morning, the host began talking about this product called "Just a Drop".  This product is suppose to eliminate embarrassing odors when you poop in the potty. You can tell by the terms I use I have young kids in potty training stages. Lol.  Well anyways, the product ad says that if you put just a drop of this into the toilet before you go there won't be any odors.  The people on the talk show says it works.  I think I'm going to try it for myself. Have you guys ever heard of this? Is this something you would buy?

Interesting Facts

I found quite a few facts that I like so I'm going to post more than 1 today.

Please not another Caylee Anthony case

Another toddler named Ayla Reynolds was reported missing Saturday morning by her father. Little Ayla Reynolds is only 20 months old and was last seen Friday night in her bed. The FBI has gotten involved to aid police in finding the missing toddler. Click the below link to get the full story. I really hope this doesn't turn out to be another Caylee Anthony case. What do you guys think about this story.

Interesting Facts

This fact will make you cringe. Ouch!!!

There are recorded cases of babies that have been delivered through the rectum. In rare instances, blockage of the mother's vaginal orifice may force an unborn child into the rectal area and the baby must be expelled through the anus. A nineteenth-century British doctor named Payne cited the case of a thirty-three-year-old woman who gave birth in this manner. Dr. Payne, seeing that the child was located near the rectum, anesthetized the mother and delivered the child by forceps with little hemorrhage and an easy removal of the placenta.

What do you listen to in the car?

Say no to Rap music is the rule in my car when I have the kids with me. Eventhough I like it there is no way I would let my kids listen to it. There is too much vulgar language and cursing. I mostly listen to pop music now and kiddie music like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  How has the music you play in your car changed since you had kids?

Interesting Facts

Here's today fact. I love this one! This will explain why I have all boys and no girls. Let me know if this fact is trrue for you.

A survey conducted at Iowa State College in 1969 suggests that a parent's stress at the time of conception plays a major role in determining a baby's sex. The child tends to be of the same sex as the parent who is under less stress.

Is it safe to post kids pics on Facebook?

Since the emergence of Facebook and other social networking sites, parents and experts have been arguing over whether children's pics are safe online.I personally choose not to post pictures of my children on the Internet let alone Facebook. I'm probably being overdramatic but there are some hidden dangers when posting your childrens pictures on any social networking site. I'm concerned about pedophiles,kidnappers and someone using their photo without my permission. People usually post detail information about their lives and their children such as birth dates, where they live and full names etc. That's a lot of valuable information to a criminal. In fact, now days someone can find you through your geotag. Geotagging is marking a picture, video or other media with your location and date and time. Your geotag will give anyone that is looking all the information they need to find you. Every smart phone has GPS built into it so be careful when posting pics taken with your phone.

There are more realistic dangers parents don't usually consider when posting family pics. People including pedophiles can easily find your pics and use them for their own purposes. Sometimes it can be as harmless as a business using your picture in an advertisement but other times it can be much worse.

If you feel uncomfortable about posting your children's pictures online you can make sure your profile and pics aren't public on social networking sites and/or add a digital watermark to your photo.

No Talent Kardashians!

As I was listening to the radio on my way to work, they start talking about an interview Barbara Walters had with the Kardashians.  What is boils down to is that Barbara bluntly told Kim she doesn't have any talent. Well it is true and they didn't try to deny it.  I think it is amazing that people can become rich because they are beautiful or have a lot of junk in the trunk. LOL. That brings up another good point. Why if Kim's body in particular such a big deal? Don't get me wrong, she has a great body but black women have always have big booties. LOL. Big booties weren't seen as beautiful until J. Lo came on the scene. Anyways, let me get back to the point of this post.  The Kardashians are famous reality stars. How did she become famous anyway? Was it because of her sex tape with Ray J? If you were given the opportunity, would you want to become a famous reality star like the Kardashians?  Would you prefer to be famous and rich for being a reality star, a business woman or an actress? If given the choice I think I would prefer to become famous and rich for using my brain as a business woman.
