I don't know how I would ever be able to decide which of my children to sketch, but until I save up for a family sketch, I would really like to win a sketch of Raffi, my happy little boy in heaven. is a great blog written by a former nanny now mommy of 2 with some really creative ideas on entertaining and caring for kids.

The Dirty Shirt is giving away a LeapFrog Leapster 2 with a game. My 5 year old son learned to read from the LeapFrog Letter Factory DVD and I'm thrilled to see a game for it. Although I'm not a big fan of kids with electronic devices and addicted to handheld games, it would be nice to have something educational to distract my son when we're out. The I Spy games also look really nice.

My first follower Barefoot Mommies has some (well, really a ton) of great giveaways going on. My baby son just started cruising so any of the See Kai Run or pediped™ shoes that she is giving away would be great. And I can't forget my baby daughter who would look adorable in the Heelarious high-heeled soft shoes or personalized Darling Shoes. My five year old is afraid of the dark and wakes us up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, the SylvaniaPalPODzzz night lights look they would be quite helpful. She is also giving away a package of Classy Kid Products disposable changing table liners, disposable bibs, bags and potty protectors. Most of them are staples in my diaper bag. Check out Barefoot Mommies for all the other giveaways.

I happen to think that the FLOR system is the smartest around. Ever get some dirt on your carpet that you weren't able to get it out? When I was in bedrest Powerade spilled all over my white carpet. No matter how many times I cleaned it or what cleaners I used I still have this ugly black stain. We moved the beds to cover it up, but now know to buy FLOR tiles for our next apartment and I never have to worry about stained carpets again. What is the FLOR system? FLOR makes carpet tiles that you could put together in any color or pattern you like creating very original flooring. Plus, because each tile can be removed seperately, you never have to worry about bad stains, just replace that one tile! Right now you can win a FLOR seagrass rug from from Double Bugs.

Travelling with a baby is always hard. Multiply that by 2 and we start disaster planning. In the rare occasions that we actually do go away our minivan is always bursting at the seams. There is never enough room for all the baby paraphanelia so we are always looking for different convenience items to help us. Although exersaucers are not a necessity, during certain stages it definately seems like one. I love the convenience of having a safe place for a baby to play without me worrying about them getting into trouble or being attacked by the other children. Since there is no way to travel with the exersaucer even folded, the PopATot was invented. You can win one now at Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls. You can also win a childs finger painting kit with frame and many other giveaways going on now.

I'm starting to care about the planet more now that I realize how much garbage we generate. Well really it was my husband wondering why we have 4 full bags of garbage to bring down to the basement every night.

Rockin Mama is giving away a baby starter kit including 2 packages of diapers in your choice of size, a tub and travel pack of wipes and baby laundry detergent, all in a reusable bag. With the amount of diapers my twins go through we could definately use some free ones! Rockin Mama is having a potty training party going on right now so she is running a few other giveaways to fit in the theme as well.
