Leaving Home

Guest post of the week by Brittany Booker

Apart from getting out of the house to get groceries I rarely have a chance to get out and relieve all the stress that builds throughout the day. Most of the time my day consist of the exact same thing, waking up, dropping the kids of at school, coming home and doing laundry, cleaning the house and then making my grocery list for the day. Some times half of my day gets taken up by paying bills. Thankfully, I stumbled across Click HERE and now I at least our energy needs are met and delivered at a fixed rate every month. Every now and then I just want to take a break from the normal routine of life. I’ve been trying to find some yoga classesin the afternoon before the kids need to be picked up at school, it’s hard to find time to break away. Maybe I could do a yoga class every morning before the kids are up for school, which might be some way to relax before the stressful day begins.

Toby at 4 months

Toby is 4 mos old now and he is growing fast. He can roll over on his tummy and jumps while he is in his jumper. His development is doing great. He is very opposite of his older brother Tyler. Tyler didn't roll over until he was 7 mos old. We think that Toby will learn to crawl pretty soon and starts walking earlier than Tyler was. Toby is such as happy boy for the most part.

Splashing around at the water park

Guest post written by Ian Sampson

This summer is really hectic for me because I was recently promoted to work which means that I've been travelling a whole lot more. But I'm really making an effort to make up for that by spending as much time as possible with my kids while I am at home. I planned a trip to the water park last Saturday and I think that we had a whole lot of fun.
While I was looking up ticketing information and figuring out exactly how much we needed to budget for our big water park trip, I ran across the site more info. After I looked through it some I decided to change over our home internet service to it and I'm glad that I did.
I took the kids onto all of the slides that were too big and scary for my wife's taste, which made it that much more fun because we teased her about not going on them. But she's always been like that and maybe it's better that way that we're opposites in that way.

Busy Mom

I have been busy taking care of my 2 little ones that I don't have much time to update my blogs. Things are doing very well despite of being busy and some challenges going on. Tyler and Toby are growing healthy. Tyler is doing well with Toby, he gives him hugs and kisses and sometimes asks me to put Toby on his lap with my help. Tyler will be 2 yrs old tomorrow and it will be a double birthday celebration since him and hubby has the same birth date. Toby will be 3 mos next month. I can't believe how fast the day goes by and how quick my boys are growing up!

A Bit of New Technology

Guest post written by Bob Naples

This past weekend, my wife finally got me to sign up for a social networking site. I was hesitant because I thought that social networks for mostly just for young folks, but my wife showed me just how many of our friends use the site. It was really interesting to see. It seems as though everyone is getting involved with it these days. After giving it a try, I actually like it a lot. I know better than anyone that it's incredibly easy for good friends and relatives to drift apart with time. I think it's nice that such sites exist so that people can see the people close to them are up to. I've found some people online that I haven't talked to in years. I can't believe it.
Aside from the social networks, my wife finds all kinds of helpful stuff for me online: coupons, HearingAidsReviews, news, etc. Perhaps I should invest in a laptop before too long. It's really amazing to see just how far technology has come in recent years. It's absolutely incredible.

New Bundle of Joy

I just gave birth to my second baby last April 8th. A new bundle of joy has been added to our family. He was born 2 weeks early though but thank God he is very healthy and normal. Toby was born at 5:05 am on April 8 through C-section. He was 8 lbs and 3 oz in weight which is kind a big for a tiny mom like me. He is 20 inches in length. If he had stayed until my scheduled C-section which was supposedly April 22nd. He would have been almost 10 lbs I think but I'm glad that she is home with us and my pregnancy was over because I was so miserable dealing with all the pains and aches because I was carrying my baby so low and my tummy was so huge. Right now I'm just recuperating from my major surgery. I feel better each day and hopefully will be able to recover very soon.

Watching a Travel Program on Television

Contributed by Cameron Hodge

I love traveling and normally go on different trips all of the time. It's not uncommon for me to go on a trip at least once a month or so. I love hiking and just going sightseeing and so I normally go to areas that I am not familiar with. It's even better if I get lost while on my trip since I can really go to areas I don't know while I am lost and driving on unfamiliar roads. My boyfriend and I love going traveling all of the time and even like to watch travel programs on our Directv TV Satellite Specials when we come home from a trip. These types of programs really give me some good ideas about where to go when we choose to go traveling again.
As I've said, we normally go traveling about once a month and I absolutely love looking for new places to go to. The travel programs we watch are really beneficial when we are stumped about where to go. For the most part, we like to stay in the country when we go traveling. This ensures that we are not gone for too long since we have animals at home and can not leave them for very long while we go visiting new areas around the country. When we get home, we're already planning out our next trip.

Pregnancy Update

It's been awhile to be able to post here. Been busy with family. I'm on my 30 weeks of pregnancy, still feeling a lot of pain in my back and my sciatic. I can't wait to see this baby and be able to get away with all the discomforts I'm having right now. Tyler is doing great and learning a lot. His been talking and wanting to be more independent. He is a sweet, smart boy but sometimes he can be a handful. He is learning the sounds of the letters as he keeps watching his video "The Letter Factory" from Leapfrog. He can recognize most of the letters of the alphabet and their sounds and he is only 19 months.
