Uggh, sorry for the lack of posts!

Hi guys, sooo sorry for the lack of posts recently.  Yes, I am still back from vacation, but unfortunately it seems that my computer is not.  I've been having MAJOR issues with my laptop, it can't even handle having firefox open without freezing these days, so I'm relegated to IE, and even then it seems like is way too much for it to deal with.  I hope to get it fixed or get a new one and be back to normal next week, sorry for the long absense!

The Joys of Parenthood...

So, I'm sure you noticed the lack of posts yesterday and today.. well, Zach is sick, yesterday afternoon he woke up from his nap with a fever of 102 and we just went downhill from there :(.  He was up pretty much all night screaming and burning up with a few hour long naps stuck in, so needless to say we're both exhausted today!  His temperature and screaming were unchanged this morning so we took him to the doctor, turns out he has "herpangina" technical term that amounts to a viral infection that brings with it painful blisters to the back of the throat.  We have a recommended treatment from the doctor and he's doing MUCH better today, although definitely not 100% by any means.  He is thoroughly enjoying the prescribed pudding, milkshakes, and ice cream though (seriously, the doctor said that's what we should give him, lucky kid! I never had a doctor like that when I was little!!).  Hopefully he'll be better soon, we're headed to San Diego on vacation tomorrow, and I had planned to line up some posts to go out while I was gone, but, I was planning to do that today, and with Zach being sick I haven't had time :(.  So the lack of posts will continue unfortunately.  Hope everyone has a GREAT 4th of July!!

Cheap diapers at Target!

I don't usually post on the weekends, but this deal is worth mentioning. We were in Target tonight and noticed that they have a bunch of boxes of diapers marked 15% off, Huggies and Pampers. We got 2 boxes of Pampers Baby Dry Diapers Sz 4 (126 ct) for $20.28 each, then used our $4 off of 2 Pampers coupon to bring it down to $18.28 each, making it around $0.14 a diaper, this is a great price! So check your Target! They didn't have these with the rest of the diapers in our Target (Gilbert and Germann), they were in the back with the rest of the bulk packaged items. I've got a bunch of Huggies coupons that we're not going to use that would be great to pair with this deal, first to reply in the comments will get them, I'll email you to get the info to mail them out so don't forget to include your email addr :).

Play Mats!

I wanted to pass along this find that everyone I know seems to love. We have mostly tile floors in Zach's play area (aka the lower level of our house), when he started having more active tummy time I would use a blanket to buffer him from the cold hard tile. Of course, as some of you know, Zach was a big time spitter when he was little so this led to a lot of laundry. Plus the blanket was always in the way on the floor and basically just a tripping hazard for Mommy and Daddy. So, in my quest to solve this issue I found these big foam play mats that are perfect for his play area!

They're about 18-24 inches square, they interlock so you can choose the configuration and placement to fit your space, and best of all, they are REALLY easy to clean. I'm anal retentive so I vacuum them and wipe them down with clorox wipes at least once a week and before and after any playgroup session we have at the house. So far they've held up great! A couple nicks from the dogs toe nails when he gets fiesty and wants to play on them, but nothing serious :). And as Zach becomes more mobile and has friends over to play, it's a great way for him to have his own space with toys and stuff!

We found them at Walmart in the kids toy section, at around $20 for a 4-pack. We ended up with 3 packs to make a 4x3 tile play area, these are great gift ideas for family, useful and fun (how often do you get both as gifts for your little ones from family?). These are similar but a little more pricey, and you can find ones with ABC's or 123's on them online, but none of the ones I've seen online were as good a bargain square footage-wise as the ones in store at Walmart. Let me know if you've found something like this that will work for a play area!

Pillow Pets for a great cause!

Nichol at Kiddies Corner Deals is blogging today about a way to make a contribution to a great cause and get a cute and functional toy for your kiddo at the same time. My Pillow Pets is teaming with Family Reach Foundation to raise money for families going through pediatric cancer. They are donating 50% of the proceeds from each My Pillow Pet purchase to the foundation when you select "Family Reach Foundation" in the "Where did you hear about us?" box during check-out. And in case you don't know, My Pillow Pets are super soft and cute stuffed animals that double as pillows for your munchkin to catch some zzzz's on. They'd be great for travel or in the car, or even just hanging out around the house!

Fantastic deal on Flip Video camera!

Amazon has a great price on the Flip Video Ultra Series Camcorder (white only) at $49.99, normally $149.99!!  This is a great little camera that takes 30 minutes worth of video and fits in your pocket.  Great to throw in the diaper bag so you always have it on hand!  I've seen this deal on several blogs so I don't know who the credit for finding it goes to.

This is how they describe the Mom tester:
"Parenting needs your opinion! Sign up for a chance to be a Mom Tester and review toys, beauty products, baby gear and more.
We review items every month, so we need real-mom opinions on lots of products. As items come up for review that are appropriate for you and your family, we may contact you with an option to receive stuff to test (and keep, whether we print your review or not). All we ask is that you give us your honest opinion, good or bad. You may also be contacted for mom-related stories to be used in the magazine and online."

Items we'll need you to test could include:
  • Toys and games
  • Books, DVDs, CDs, or Video Games
  • Health products for babies, toddlers, or kids
  • Bath products for baby, toddlers, or kids
  • Health and beauty products for Mom

Rehash to save money

Rehash is a website where you can trade your used clothes, similar to how swaptree works for books (you can trade books on rehash as well, but I've never tried it). A quick search shows that there are some baby clothes and bottles being traded too, and you can definitely find a cute little something for yourself while you're at it! Saving money and keeping stuff out of landfills, where's the downside?
