Let me tell you a bit about the bummas. Bummas were created out of necessity when the founder needed a soft wipe for her babies bottom. She was offered several bits of advice but never exactly what she was looking for. She created these soft absorbent cloths to be what she was looking for. Just the right touch to dry her little guys bottom. Thus she created bummas.
My granddaugther recently had a stomach virus and these tender Bummas wipes worked great against her bottom. Regular wipes often contain cleaning agents that will burn your babies bottom but these soft Bummas wipes were great. So when stocking up your needs for new little one remember bummas wipes.
Bummas wipes come in 4 attractive collections. These 4 collections are (1) the girls, (2) the boys, (3) the wild ones, and (4) calm ones. The girls are hues of pink just like girl wipes should be pretty and pink. The boys contain hues of blues and greens after all blue and greens naturally blue is for boy. The wild ones are an assortment of the brighter colors a mixture of all. The calm ones are remind me of the cool days of autumn browns greens and oranges. You can pick your favorite. I chose the girls because Katelynn my granddaugther is a princess to us.
Great reason why you should use bummas include (1) Bummas eliminates the use of talcum powder. as a nurses aide for many years talcum powder when mixed with urine has the ability to burn
(2)Bummas wipes are 100% Cotton - Woven Velour Terry Cloth. Nothing softer than terry cloth I love the summer shorts that I have had for many years that are terry cloth so imagine what your baby will feel when you wipe your babies bottom with soft terry cloth bummas wipes
(3) Bummas wipes are Handy 5” x 7” size. Just the right size to use on the baby
(4) Bummas wipes are durable. Just throw them in the washing machine and use them again.• Won’t pill, shrink, or fade. These are great and come out of wash as soft as they went in
(5) Bummas wipes will last until your little one is out of diapers and beyond Great lifetime for baby wipes when you normally are used to tossing them out after use.
Other great uses for bummas wipes include (1) using them for burp cloths (2)great for little noses. (3) Great for baths as a baby wash cloth!
With all this great information how could you not try Bummas wipes.
1. Could this be the day that we will remember forever?
2. This day our whole family will be in the same house once again
3. Work hard to keep a great family in touch makes for a happy life
4. Out for supper do not think so we will make our meal here tonight
Saturday special is a weekly meme found here
If you had been born more than 100 years ago what six things would you of liked to have done?
If born 100 years ago it would have been 1909 this would not have been a distressing time to grow up in as the womens movement was right around the corner. I would have found myself involved in that first off. Second I would find myself in an era that was a bit whimsical to me and woud make the most of it by caring for my sibling so that they would end up doing great. Third there of course would be chores to do as the convience of today would not be there. Fourth I am for sure that walkign would be in the cards as there were not that many individuals with cars. Fifth I could for sure tell you that we would not live that far away from our loved ones because the loved ones would of been involved either in the farming or mining work that was Illinois years ago. Sixth this being valentines there may of been a big dance or something because the town of my size provided their own entertainment.

Love is in the air. Must be getting close to valentine day. I found out yesterday that we would have a spring wedding in our family. I remember my daughters wedding and how frugal conciess she was. She made her wedding favors which were hershey kiss spoons, found her dress (which was beautiful) at a bargain basement sale, and used the decor that she found at the church. These are just a few ways to have a frugal yet lovely wedding. In the next few weeks I plan on including frugal ideas for great weddings. This week I will give instructions on how to make the hershey kisses spoons since they will go great for valentines day as well.
Put a Hershey's Kiss on a plastic spoon, tie with netting and a bow. Hole punch a little tag which you will tie in with the bow that reads "Kisses from the Mister and Misses" or "Kisses from the Newlyweds - Thank you for joining us today" or something similar My daughter included the bride and groom name and the wedding date.
For more frugal friday ideas head over to the biblical womanhood blog
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
My question this week is what do you plan on doing for valentines day?
My answer is that we will share a family feast. I will have this earlier than normal though because my mother and brother are going to a concert and my daughter and son in love will be going out as well. Not sure if any of my other kids have plans yet.But I know where i will be after supper me and my husband will be babysitting our little valentine.
Want more Aloha Fridays or maybe join in head over to Island Life and play along

THis week theme is love.
It takes me no time to talk about love. I love everyday and everything but one of my most loved things is my new grandbaby Katelynn. I love her from the day that I found out that she would be born. You see my daughter had been told that she could not have a baby. SO shocker, GOd said she could LOL those doctors were wrong. This little girl was born September 2, 2008 in the afternoon. My daughter went through 24+ hours of labor before she was born. We were so excited. We loved her so much. She was the biggest baby in the nursery at nearly 10 lbs and boy did she shine. I will never forget that day and I cant wait to visit with her this weekend. It will be my first real babysitting time. Yeah she will be all mine and papas for the night. Cant wait. Well there is a love experience

I have started late and this week they are already on the letter D. SO I choose diabetic diet
I am a diabetic and can only tell you that if I had found out 20 years ago that I was a diabetic I would of not of been as happy as I am now. The world has changed and Splenda has been invented. If you have never used splenda let me tell you it is truly the next best thing to sugar. It taste great. You can cook with it or simply use it as you would sugar. Diabetes is not a fun thing but if I had to be one I am glad that there is splenda.
Today all I can think about is that I want to see my granddaughter Katelynn. Last weekend she was sick and I was not able to visit her. This weekend her parents are to bring her to my house so I can babysit so GOd willing I will be able to see her. The thing is they live about 3 hours from me so we can not visit everyday. I do get to call her everyday and find out how she is. She is not old enough to talk yet so her momma tells me. All I know is that I want to see my granddaughter katelynn

There are several great points about the art that smart quotes for kids contain and here are a few of them:
Smart quotes for kids are produced on archival-quality canvas this would be great since it makes the art more of higher quality item which impresses me
Smart quotes for kids art are stretched over an extra-deep 1.5" wooden frame this will protect the canvas (have you ever seen a canvas painting that is barely hanged onto the frame? These normally will come off or at least they have with me.)
Smart quotes for kids art arrive ready to hang with a grograin ribbon or saw-tooth hanger which makes it nice for the mom and child alike because all that is needed is a great place to hang
Smart quotes for kids sayings introduce or reinforce concepts about kindness, friendship and success which is what we all want to install into our children as they grow up.
Smart quotes for kids matted picture quotes coordinate beautifully with any décor several different colors and styles are available so all you have to do is look for the one that goes with your theme the best.
The creator of these wonderful artful worksat Smart quotes for kids is Laura Sheehan Kallen who created the company and art as she was looking for art for her 2 year old sons room. She could not find exactly what was desired so she created it. Laura has offered my readers a discount 20% discount through March 15. When ordering please include the code annie20

In our house hygiene can often be a struggle. I have created charts for my children which are held in a protected folder. This chart allows them the reminder as well as the opportunity to check off the progress such as brush teeth, shower, shampoo, etc.... This seems to help. I do still have problems with one of my boys who does not like to keep good hygiene. We have tried lots of ideas my question is do you have any idea of how to not really bribe but get him to take his shower and hygiene responsibilities without fighting. I would appreciate hearing any and all ideas.

My daughter is a bit nervous of what she allows her daughter to have ever since she had a brief stay in the childrens hospital. So when I saw that the tights were organically lovingly put together I knew these were for Katelynn. If you have that worry about what your little one touches and has around them perhaps you should check into what they wear as well. With lots of individuals getting on the go green bandwagon organic cotton that the happy green bee company uses fits right in. Organic cotton is healthy for planet's creatures, from children and wildlife to farm and factory workers. So the processing of the happy green bee products do not cause wildlife harm or cancer or illness to the factory workers.Happy Green Bee company makes shirts, shorts, skorts, dresses among other items that are as safe and cute as the tights.
One large line that runs on the happy green bee sight is this:
safe and sustainable, soft and stretchy, super-silly, simply sensational styles!
Safe n sustainable the cotton is safe as I stated before and sustainable as it is durable and seems to stretch quite well. Soft enough to rub on your cheek so on your babies skin should feel as soft as can get. Super silly comes in with the stripes that are given and great colorful stripes create fun.So now that I have shared what I love about the great Happy Green Bee company you should check them out for yourself.
