partnering with HeartReach

HeartReach Pregnancy Center in Wasilla is raising funds for ultrasound equipment and all of the particulars that go with such a program to support women and their families. Baruch's Lullaby has partnered with HeartReach and is donating 80% of sales from this section of the shop toward this project.

Or, you can go to the main page of the shop and on the right (under "Sections in this shop") click on the HEARTREACH BENEFIT. Spread the word! Pregnant moms deserve real options and truth, and ultrasounds go a long way toward delivering both.

[insert offending child's name here]

No one's exempt...and I know you've been there. Also please note that all of these incidents happened today, each child was an offender at least once, and it's not even 4 pm yet.

"Mommy, Mommy!!!! [offending child] poured gatorade all over the humidifier!"

Offending child in time out, jumping up and down while screaming, "I AM sitting quietly!!! I AM sitting quietly!!!" I turn to my oldest and ask, "Is it quiet in here?" and he looks around and immediately replies, "Yep, 'cept for [offending child]."

Offending child: "I threw my pencil and it landed on your desk and I made a scratch on it to show you exactly where it landed."
Me: "You scratched it on purpose just to show me?!"
Offending child, obviously rethinking confession a minute too late: "Um...yeah."

As I am typing the title of this blog, offending child is scrubbing crayon off the wall with baking soda, finishes, then comes to me and says, "I didn't need all of the baking soda so I just rubbed the extra on the floor." Oh, goody.
