2 months and trying again?

Am I the only that remembers the bit about waiting 9 months before trying to get pregnant again? Is that outdated or something? There are women in the communities I'm a part of already trying and getting pregnant. Their due dates are just days away from their new babies' birthdays! What's the deal? Is it that horrible to just enjoy the children you have before trying to pop out another one? I can understand in cases where fertility is a huge issue and children have to happen NOW, but that doesn't seem to be the case with these women.

Lily has started blowing raspberries with her lips lately. It's pretty funny. She seems to do it more often when she's mad oddly enough. Silly baby.

Shalom in the Home says Breastfeeding is bad

F-you Shalom.

What an ignorant a-hole. I will never call myself a breastfeeding nazi (although I do find myself questioning the mom's buying formula...even though I have to do the same thing) but good lord this article made me fume!!!!!

Guess what - WOMAN'S BREASTS ///ARE/// A FEEDING STATION! Jesus! Who gives a rat's rear end if breastfeeding de-eroticizes them. Good!!! Then maybe it would make the world more comfortable with women feeding their children in public. If you're marriage is based solely on sex and boobs, I'm sorry, but you have more problems than breastfeeding!

Another was meant for *duhn duhn duhn* REPRODUCTION! If you don't want to know that a baby comes out of your wife's "special erotic place" you're too f-ing immature to have anything to do with it anyway.

Why is it that everyone thinks cow's milk is sooooo dandy? Hunny, I'm sorry you're feeling jealous that our child is feeding from your happy toys, let's feed him formula that was derived from the milk of some poor cow who was strapped to a machine (and will be for the rest of its miserable life) after its calf was ripped away from her (while being fed other chemicals). Doesn't that just sound better? You have issues with my "feeding stations" feeding our child, so let's feed him the milk of another species. Why stop at cows? Let's feed our son rat milk! Yay rat milk!

Seeeeeeeee, fuming. :(

Silly child. She'll sleep in the bassinet at daycare, but refuses to at home. What's the deal with that.

In other matters - I lost the plug to my pump. I know it's in the house somewhere but I can't for the life of me find it. :( Ergh.

I'm a partial stay at home mom to my new baby Lily. I say partial because I substitute teach; however, in a small town with a plentiful supply of substitute teachers, jobs are hard to come by. I spend most of my days playing with my daughter and enjoying it. There are times though that I'd really like to have some extra money to spend on the both of us, but when you're not working, that's hard to find.

While pondering this issue I recently discovered GPT sites. GPT means Get Paid To. Get paid to what one might ask. Get paid to:

*do surveys
*read emails
*give your opinion
*visit websites
*try trial offers

There are loads of ways to make money online, some will take a lot of effort and cost you a lot of money along the way to start seeing results. Some are flat-out scams. I'd like to tell you a little bit about a way I've found to earn consistent income online from multiple sources and have fun doing it. The way I see it, if you're going to idle away hour after hour online, you might as well figure out a way to make that time a little more productive. That's the beauty of GPT sites. Basically, these sites pay you for doing the things that you already do online. I know we're all fairly skeptical of these sort of "make free money" sites, but I finally decided to try one out. I started with CashCrate and within literally minutes I had made $7.00. Over the next few days I got up to $30 (update - $50) and was well on my way to making more. All I had to do was complete various offers. These offers ranged from participating in surveys to registering for websites (some of which were pretty nifty).

If you have any questions or doubts, contact me. I have spent NO money out of pocket. Some GPT sites feature offers which do carry a small cost for shipping or fees but you are NEVER under any obligation to participate in any particular offer. It's all up to you. You can make as little or as much as you're willing to put the time into earning. I devote about ten minutes per day per program on average and that ten minutes pays WAY better than ten minutes at my nine-to-five job. There is a support base built in to each program to help you get started and keep your totals on the increase. And if you recruit others to join these programs, you also earn percentages of your referrals' earnings and sometimes THEIR referrals' earnings, too! What you make will be determined by your level of commitment but one thing I know for certain is this: THESE PROGRAMS WORK. What are you waiting for? Click on one or more of the program banners and start earning. I'll gladly sponsor you into each and every one which means that if you sign up under any of the banners below, send me an email with which program you signed up under and your username or referral number and I'll send you my "tips and tricks" email to making more money quickly.


Now do yourself a favor and BOOKMARK THIS PAGE NOW because once you set up your accounts at these sites, you'll want to advertise them so you can get referrals and make that all-important bonus money. What follows is a list of sites that can help you promote your GPT businesses (that's right, it's time to start thinking of these sites as businesses if you want to make money at them) and start building your referral base. These sites are absolutely free and will provide LOADS of traffic to your site.

How to NOT check on the baby?

I have Lily dozing in her bassinet for the first time by myself. She slept in there a few days when we were first home but Mike was always in the room with her.

How do I resist the urge to go check on her every 2 seconds or every time her monitor makes a noise?

CashCrate - Made easy money!!

I found this website called cashcrate and have made $7 so far today! If I keep this up, I should make a ton by the end of the month.

I found the site from my friend Julie - she made $351 last month, but only $50 this month as she hasn't had much time.

Cool!!! Let me know if you want tips and tricks for how to fill out the surveys quickly and easily. If you sign up using the banner below I'll email you my personal tutorial. :D
