I've never win...until recently

I don't enter into many contests or giveaways. I mostly think that I won't win. My odds are usually pretty slim.

I've been reading this website,, for quite some time. However, I don't think I ever posted to it until the last month or so. The creator of the site is a father of two and writes reviews on children's products. He occasionally pops in with interesting tidbits and contests. This last month has been full of them. Some of them you only have to post a comment to be eligible. Others are more in depth. For instance, his most recent contest is to write a story in six words about parenting. Scott and I came up with some good ones, so let's cross our fingers!

Now back to winning.

I don't enter many things, but when all it takes is a comment with your opinion or suggestion or whatever you're thinking, then I'm game. Then out of the blue, I got an email! I won!

Here's the post, announcing that I won something. It is Corduroy and More Stories About Caring. We just got it yesterday, so I broke it out for my son to watch. I wasn't sure if he would like it, but he has taken to it very well and loves it. In fact, he asked if he could watch it again tonight, but I had to decline. I don't want him watching tv every night. So, he resolved to playing with his stickers and singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and "Mary Had a Little Lamb".

Thanks Thingamababy! The DVD is a great addition to our collection.

Oh, and I think I'm starting to get obsessed with blogs. Obviously, not posting on my own blog. But rather reading other blogs.

Well, I'll figure out something.

About This Blog

My name is Mary and I'm a working mom with two beautiful children. I've worked for over seven years at a credit union, currently as an administrative assistant. Last fall, I went back to school and started on a Bachelors in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Elementary Education.

My hobbies, when I have time, include photography, sewing, photo processing, digital scrapbook, online gaming, reading, role playing games like DnD, and board games. But what I really love doing is just being a mom to my two children, Tristan and Melayna.

Tristan, whois four, is an awesome big brother and such an intelligent little boy. He loves Transformers, animals, Dr. Seuss books, and eating.

Melayna, who is one and a half, has definitely taught her momma patience. Unlike her easy going brother, she is curious and persistent. And if something stands in her way, she will definitely let you know her displeasure. Regardless, she is a sweetheart and daddy's little girl.
