There is nothing in this world better than...

holding your baby boy or girl and rocking and singing them to sleep. I did this with my nephew almost 11 years ago, and now with my own children. No matter how upset my baby girl is, rocking her and singing to her works to get her to calm down and take a nap or go to bed at night. Sometimes she will go down for naps or at night without any issues, sometimes, like today, she was really upset when I put her down for her nap. So I changed her diaper, she wasn't too wet, and I held her close to me and I sang to her. I started with Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, and then sang Silent Night. Silent Night seems to really soothe babies and to help them to calm down. I sang it to my nephew, my son, and now to our daughter. (I still sing it to my son sometimes, and he's almost 3 years old.) So next time your little one is really upset and needs to calm down or to get them to sleep, try holding them close, rocking them with your body, not a rocking chair, and sing them to sleep with your favorite slow songs or, with Silent Night!

Here's Matthew, his 1st Christmas 2 1/2 months old, sleeping in his Daddy's arms after I sang him to sleep. (I have one of me holding her somewhere, but I can't seem to find it.)

What are your favorite lullabys to sing to your babies and children?

E-mailing Companies Online to tell them that you LOVE Their Products!

I have been emailing a few companies online to tell them how much I really love their products! I know that some companies will send you some coupons when you do this. Sometimes, they will even send you coupons for FREE products!

I sent an email last week to Georgia-Pacific though the main Dixie website, and they mailed me Four $.55 off coupons for any Dixie Bowls, Cups, Cutlery, Napkins, or Plates! They don't expire till the end of this year! Pretty cool Huh!

So take a few minutes out of your day and send out a few emails to your favorite companies and tell them how much you love their products. Look on the website pages for where it says "Contact Us." Then come back here and tell me what they sent you!

Thank you Couponing to Disney for the inspiration!

Wordless Wednesday

It's very hard to get photos of my almost 3 year old little man, Matthew. But he was just laying on the floor near me and I have been keeping my camera near me just in case a cute moment pops up. So here he is! Smiling and looking so handsome!

It's tough to get good photos of him, but for some reason a few days ago, he was holding still and letting me take some photo of him.
