Friday Faves

Well, everybody is doing Friday faves, so I'm just gonna hop on the bandwagon with you all. Pretty sure I owe someone credit for this, but I don't know who. 1.My first fave is my friends. Particularly Danielle, Jill and Amy, who gave me blog awards. And I've been lame and doing other stuff and I haven't had a chance to pa pass it along. But they are my girls and they are sweet. I'm lucky to have them in my life. 2. Potty training. Our first day of potty training went really well. I will spare you the gruesome details that only a mommy could love. But we are getting there and I think that Kevin is finally ready! http://www.kiddies-kingdom.com/images/categories/potty-training.jpg 3. Goodnight Moon, by Margret Wise Brown. I've always wanted to read with Kevin. But he is not the sort of kid that sits still. EVER. And lately he is wanting me to read to him. I've already read Goodnight Moon to him twice today. http://www.crayons4kids.org/image/donate_goodnightmoon.jpg 4. Magic Jack. You pay 40 bucks for it at Walmart, Plug it into your computer and plug it into your phone. And your calls are free for a year. I ended up calling the phone company and switching to the bare bonesiest non package thing they have for 15 bucks a month (since we get out Internet through the phone company and I wanted to keep my phone number). The Magic Jack does give you a new phone number, but that is the only downside that I see. We will save $430.00 off of our phone bill this year. That is a lot of paper. http://img.epinions.com/images/opti/81/b6/magicJack_Online_Service-resized200.jpg 5. PBS I used to watch it when I was a kid, before my mother went nuts and threw out our television. I love watching Mr.Rodgers and Sesame Street with Kevin because they are the same shows that I watched as a kid. I'm not going to lie, Sesame Street has changed a lot. It took me a while to warm up to it. But Kevin loves it. He really really does. And motherhood is all about compromises. http://www.freddistribution.com/images/misc/pbs_kids_lg.gif Happy Friday, Peeps!
