Bump to Baby Giveaway Event at MN Mama's Must Haves!

Starting tomorrow, September 1st, Minnesota Mama's Must Haves and J. Leigh Designz are hosting a Bump 2 Baby Giveaway Event.  There are tons of prizes to be had including a crib mattress, a bassinet and a high chair.

So if you are pregnant, or know someone who is, you should definitely check this out! It will last the entire month of September.

An interesting conversation with a 5 1/2 year old

Yesterday, Miss M brought up the concept of bad brain.  She told me that she has a bad brain that resides in the middle of her forehead area.  She said that this bad brain gives her thoughts like "this is dumb" or "I don't like you."  She then went on to say that she has a good brain as well, which makes up the rest of her head.  This brain (the good one) makes sure she doesn't actually say what the bad brain wants her to.  It stops her mouth from saying those "bad" things and instead replaces it with good things.

I thought this was an interesting take on the idea of good conscience and bad conscience.  We discussed this with Daddy last night at dinner and he told Miss M that his grandmother, the awesome Mumie, would always tell him as a little boy that he had a "bad man" on his back when he was misbehaving.  I told her as well that you could also look at her "bad brain" idea as being the devil and the "good brain" is God.  She didn't totally agree with our added comments.  She simply said "It is just your brain, Mom!"

We are the best girls EVER! by Miss M

Baby C is a silly girl
She likes to fall down on the ground 
She is very sweet.
I like her because she is very cute!
Cause I like to play with her and 
Me, Miss M,  because we all like to play all day
When she sees bigger kids she wants to play with them.
Today she is sleeping right now and I am staying up because I don't need naps anymore.
Later we are going to listen to music and C will get really excited.
She is mostly very exciting girl.
I think she is a very wonderful Baby C!  She is so lovely.  She is as lovely as a beautiful flower.  Because then she is so beautiful because I very love her! 
That's it.

I love to decorate cakes! by Miss M

I was playing with my sister, C, and we were playing upstairs. And I was going on the cow which we have.
I was at Uncle Bryan's. I had so much fun. The boys were silly but I didn't mind because they are always goofy! And they have a swimming pool and they are very very cool because they are very very AWESOME. I ate candy and watched ALOT of TV. And I also went to see Joey play football and I got an icecream cone and it was good. When I got home I had a stuffy nose but I laid down on the bed and then that was it!

At Smithton, I went on a tractor car ride and I got my face painted with a rainbow and it was lots and lots of fun at the picnic. I went to the butterfly house with Aunt Amanda. It was fun and I got to ride the carousel. It went really fast! And I enjoyed it.

My Favorite Day by Miss M

Going at the Field Museum. The underwater exhibit. Mommy was there. C was there and Daddy and me!

I like to go to my uncle's house to swim in their pool. I also like jumping off into the pool. I also like playing with my cousins because they are silly. And they are very good. I will be going there this Friday. I will have lots of candy and doughnuts. I will be staying there for two days! And I will have lots of fun. I am excited about it! And that's all.
