** CHALLENGE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO THE END OF THIS WEEK (SEPTEMBER 14th AT 12:00 PM EST!) **
I know things are little haywire this weekend with school starting, getting back into that routine as well as Gustav pummelling the Gulf Coast. We’ve been a little distracted with life.
My heart goes out to those affected. It really does. I’ve been glued to the television for the past two days watching CNN coverage of the hurricane, just as it was with Hurricane Katrina. I have been wringing my hands, praying. Praying that those levees hold. Praying that people do not lose everything again. Praying for friends and their families.
On a lighter note:
I want to thank those that participated in the first ever Being a Rookie Mom Ain’t So Bad! challenge. You guys did FABULOUS! I loved checking out your activities!
The winner of last week’s challenge is:
Now this week? Three new activities as well as a new prize!
Activity #26: Paint your baby’s feet
As precious as baby feet are, they just don’t stay small forever! This is a great way to immortalize those itty bitty baby toes! Grab some craft paint in your favourite colour and while baby’s alseep (or awake if you have some help) make some baby prints!
(I recommend taping the paper to something flat that you can press against a lying baby – best way to get a clean print!)
If you’re ambitious enough, take it to a paint-your-own pottery place and get that print embossed on a coffee cup / plate / tile!
Activity #187 Leave the House No Matter What!
Raining? Snowing? Go to the mall!
Activity #235 Share a Milkshake
You can make it at home or head out to a local shop!
(If you’re gonna make it at home, please share your recipe with us in your post!)
There you have it, now for the winner?
The winner will receive a brand new copy of The Toddler Owner’s Manual. Hooray!
Make sure to grab your buttons (they’re working now!) and get taking your pictures!
Sunday September 7th at 12:00pm EST SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 14th at 12pm EST so tell everyone you know! They really want to get in on this action!
