  1. YAY! I'm glad your posting it and spreading the news!!! I love your blog too...I need to look around more now!!!

  2. I just posted this on Pinterest, too. I thought this would help, too. I am not sure if I used Twitter yet. I have a kid saying I am hungry, but he is not coming to me to get food. I don't get up until he comes to me. My new rule. I could go get him food, but then the food sits there for awhile. I know this child!
