Good Deals and a Giveaway!

Guess what came to town? A Natural Grocers store recently opened in Norman (on Main St. between 24th and Berry), bringing a healthy competition to Dodson's and standard grocery stores.  I've not been there myself yet, but I hear their organic produce is extensive, great looking and cheap! I'll head over there next week and will definitely keep you posted.

Parents, if you buy diapers, wipes, or anything child related pretty regularly, consider Amazon's Mom program.  Members automatically receive 15% off and if you also sign up for their 'Subscribe' option (which automatically sends your products every 1, 2, 3 or 6 months) you receive another 15%.  And for the first year, members of the subscribe are promoted to Prime Shipping (free basically).  We've been using it all summer and has worked really well AND saved us money! 

Finally, I would like to introduce you to Lily Pad Couture and our first giveaway! The owner is a stay-at-home mom with a creative flair and a talent for sewing.  She has all kinds of cute things for sale, like pillow case dresses, hair bows, reusable snack/sandwich bags, teething necklaces and more in all kinds of great fabrics.  Here are a few pictures:

This week (until September 1st) Lily Pad Couture is giving away the choice of a crayon roll or car seat straps to one of my readers. AND if you mention this blog when you order something from her, she'll give you 15% off!

And I must share with you my son's new favorite sleeping position.  We always put him down on his back, but this week EVERY morning (and usually long before then) he moves into this position.  It doesn't look comfy at all, but he's been pretty consistent with sleeping through the night, so I'm not complaining!

Disappointment is a big issue with kids around.  Every parent will tell you not to say a word about a trip to the zoo or a possible visitor ...
