Sorry guys I am a little late on getting my giveaway up. I just got out of the hospital, I had to have my appendix removed, and just got out of the hospital, but here it is.

The best part about it is that you never know if you are getting a boy or girl!

ADHD rears is ugly head

Well guess my ADHD got the best of me, and I have been neglecting my blog. Honestly what has been going on is I have been couponing, and doing everything I can to stretch our budget. The Rockin Green worked great for the diapers, and is now all I use to wash my diapers. Other than that I have to get up my blog about the Stomp and Go party that I did over the weekend.

Washing My Cloth Diapers


Well the days of washing my diapers with a lot of hot water, and a Tbs of baking soda are over!! Yes I am excited about laundry detergent! I placed an order a few days ago for some Rockin' Green, and got it in the mail today. Now I wish I did not have all my diapers clean, because I can not wait to try this stuff out. All of the reviews I looked at raved about how full of awesomeness this stuff was!
If you don't already know you never ever want to wash your diapers like you would wash your clothes. The soap can build up in the diapers, and cause them to smell, repel, and break down. Now don't get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with the way that I was washing mine, but honestly it was not very eco friendly. Here is how it went. I dumped the diapers out of the wet bag into the washer, and turned the wet bag inside out dropped it in the wash, made sure my washer was on the hottest, and highest water level setting, dropped in a tbs of baking soda, and left the lid opened so they could soak for about an hour. Closed the lid, and let the cycle run. I then repeat two more time minus the baking soda. Wow Thats a lot of water.

I am hoping with Rockin' Green I can wash them once and be done. I will update you on my date with Rockin' Green sometime tomorrow, because of course I have to wash all over again tonight, and I can't wait!!!! No I am not being sarcastic.

I forgot what?

Last night after getting all three kids in bed, I decided to sit down, and watch a show that I DVRed to unwind a little bit before I cleaned the kitchen up, and set out Mariah's stuff for the next day. I could not have been more than ten minutes into the show before I fell asleep. I woke up this morning around 6:30 on the couch of course. You think that I would have gotten up, and got the things done that I did not do last night, but no. I decided that it would be a better idea to watch the show before the kids got up.
 The girls woke up about 10 minuets after seven, good I still had half an hour before Mariah's bus would be here to carry her of to school. Everything was going great, and moving along just fine until I realized that it was a little chilly out side, and Mariah need some tights. It's been 100 plus degrees here everyday for the past two months, so where did this chilly weather come from all of the sudden? I search the house from top to bottom trying to find a pair of tights that either fit her, or do not have a hole. I manage to find a pair. Good I still have 10 minuets before the bus, so I get her hair done have her go brush her teeth, and wash her face, because she always manages to have a dirty face somehow.

Well of course as usual she can not find her shoes, and I tell her like I do every morning "If you put them on the fire place like you are supposed to we won't have this problem now would we?". She finds them in her room of course. Now to get out the door and get her on the bus, but wait where are my shoes? Yes I shamelessly had to ask my girls to help me find my shoes after I just scolded my oldest about hers. I find my shoes of all places under the computer desk. Finally we get out the door and move on(I even managed to snap a few pictures). Outside we saw  the bus waiting on one of the side streets to pull out into traffic. I say my goodbyes to her, and she turns around and says "Mommy I don't have my back pack" OH NO! I don't have time to run all the way back to the house and get it the bus is here. I tell her to just go I will send her teacher an email.

(Don't you just love when 4 year olds get themselves dressed?)
How sad is that? One change in my routine, and its like a domino effect in my life. One day I will learn to be more organized, but until then I just take everything in stride.
