Did You Know About Ways to Help The Boston Marathon Victims?

Did you know About Ways to Help The Boston Marathon Victims?

While I don't want to write too much about the incident, I did receive an email filled with ways to help the victims. Hopefully this will lead others to find ways they want to share/support. Just click the link to read what the Another Mother Runners are doing to send help and support to the victims.

Did You Know About the Mic Mechanic?

Did you know about the mic mechanic?

I'm no singer so I'd never heard of this. But when I came across the tc helicon mic mechanic at guitar center I took a look. This little pedal helps with pitch control. I think this means that if you are too sharp or too flat this little mechanic will help fix that before your audience can throw rotten tomatoes your way...Now I'm just wondering if some of those folks who try out for American Idol and The Voice are in line to pick up this mic mechanic!

Did You Know The Newest Lullabies?

Did you know the newest lullabies?

I was at my neighbor's house today. She has a six week old baby. He was asleep in his stroller and she had a CD of lullabies playing. It was nice enough, catchy music. Then I almost laughed when she told me what it was. It was a CD of all Bob Marley songs redone as lullabies!

Did You Know About Rechargable Batteries?

Did you know about rechargeable batteries?

We invested in a couple of packs some years ago. I don't even know how long it's been. But it's sure nice to be able to have them ready when we need to change them out (which is pretty frequently with our wireless mouse.) But we always have a set ready when needed. I was glad to find out today that I can order a 16 pack set of powerex 2700 rechargeable batteries online. It comes with four free holders too. Should come in handy.

Did You Know Parents Say Yes When They Mean No?

Did you know parents say yes when they mean no?

I have been a parent long enough that I have done this more times than I can even remember. Even when the kids were young I knew that if I said no to certain things that I really don't like it would make them seem even more desirable. The hardest thing for me to say yes to when I really mean no is friends. I have tried no to "forbid" friends even when I know they are not the best people for my kids to be around. It is harder than I ever imagined being a parent. And never did I think I would say yes to some of the things I let my kids do.
