Summer Wacky Wednesdays!

I know this is EARLY, but I wanted to throw out the idea I had for this summers Wacky Wednesday activities. For those who don't know what Wacky Wednesday is, I will explain. Each Wednesday in the summer, moms who feel like all they do all week is tell their kids to keep the doors shut, or stop running in and out of the house wet, or tell them they have to try to keep the house semi clean, etc... get a change of scenery by taking their kids on an outing. We try to keep a balance of educational, outdoors, and just for fun activities. In the past we have done things like riding our scooters up the path to Bridal Veil Falls, going to the Bean museum, playing at the splash pad, going to a park, going to the copper mines, you get the idea. I have usually planned all the activities, and whoever wants to come meets at my house on Wednesday mornings. This year, I thought it would be fun to have different "hosts" each week, (basically I am just passing on some of the responsibility, WHAT?) lol. All the "host" has to do is pick an activity (I have a list of activities you can choose from, or you can come up with your own), let people know what the activity is and what time you want to meet, and let them meet you at your house. I know, I know! It's so easy! Soooo, there are 12 wacky Wednesdays, I need 11 volunteers! Who's in? Call me at 801-358-7510. And by the way, you don't have to be a "host" in order to come. It's always fun, so come when you can! After I get the "hosts" and their activities, I will make a calendar and post it for everyone. Thanks!

Similac Coupons

There were Similac baby formula coupons in this Sunday's paper and I cut them out because I remember how expensive that stuff can be! If anyone would like to have them, please call me or stop by. There's a $5 off (expires 4/30) and a $3 off (expires 5/31). I have 6 copies of them.

Bye, Bye, Bye

In case you don't use Facebook (i.e. me), here is a link to the Venture Scouts' music video.  The boys did this for the lip sync contest, and they have posted it on YouTube hoping to get lots of hits.  Pass the link along, and help them get as many hits as possible!

Not so FREE Babysitting

Jayden wanted me to write a post for him. He will be 13 in August and is interested in babysitting. He babysits his 2 and 5 year old brother every week for our date night, plus whatever else I need him for. I'm happy to report that my 2 and 5 year old are still alive and you can expect the same for your kids. He is responsible and his siblings are alive, I don't know what else to say. Jayden said boys get the shaft in the babysitting department- I explained that its mostly because girls are motherly, clean, like babies and parents don't usually come home to legos duct taped to the ceiling and kids jumping from the banister onto bean bags- I've probably said too much, but Jayden is a good babysitter for me. He can change diapers, make SIMPLE meals, entertain young children and clean if necessary and I'm only a phone call away if things head south. You can reach him at 801-766-5180.
