Go figure...

I got ZERO responses for the Free Giveaway. ZERO. Well, to be completely fair, I did have a couple "I want to do this" responses. One of those was from my mom...who hasn't even bothered with her own blog for months! I'm blaming it on MormonMommyBlogs...because the category that my link is in (Crunchy Moms) got moved down past the Funny Ladies category. I don't know why anyone would look past the Funny Ladies. I know I have a hard time looking past them! Regardless, my traffic has significantly decreased since the move over on MMB. Being fair stinks!

So, I guess I will just have to stick with posting my own laments. If I get ANY posts today of a lament, I will be more than willing to let them win the giveaway (whether it be the funniest, the first, or the only). Now, don't all rush in at once, though, because I'm planning on enjoying my Valentine's Day with my hubby, sans baby!!!

Well I saw the giveaway but didn't enter because after two kids I have all the boyish baby blankets I could possibly need--and I'm very anti-extra-stuff, you know? So it was nothing against the giveaway, just not something I needed. :s I skip a lot of giveaways for that reason.

You have a BEAUTIFUL family btw!

Hey sorry!!! I totally wanted to but I too am trying to not have things I don't necessarily need. I guess I could have thought about giving it away again after I got it but that didn't seem right either! Trust me I have lots of things I can lament about. Case in point, I have a strong willed 4 yr old daughter who LOVES to dress herself. I learned years ago that there are battles just not worth fighting. Tonight she happily came down after being asked to put her pj's on and she came down with her swimsuit on. Well...... I didn't fight it. She happily bounced off to bed with a smile and it gave me one back!

OH MAN! Dang it! I went out of town THURSDAY and forgot to leave me lament...hmmmmm. My favorite lamentation is when I'm blogging or just generally on the computer, my kids have to come over and LEAN on me!! I HATE that! They just wander over, lean, push, breathe, sit there. Its annoying. :)
So there you go. Sorry I'm so late, now I feel really bad! :(

Melinda, If you want to still type up your lament and make it nice and funny, I can still post it. I think it would be fun to have a kind of "guest post". Also, I can still send you the blanket if you want it, because nobody else wants it...including me! :D Just email me at thisismallory at yahoo dot com.

What's a lamanent? I'll do one for you! haha, but you have to tell me what it is first ;op

A lament is just a funny parenting story (it can be your own, or one that you witnessed, or one that your mom always told you about, doesn't matter!)
