Where to find the cutest Twitter badges and buttons

As Twitter becomes increasingly popular so do the offerings of banners, buttons, and badges.
If you haven’t already added a Twitter badge to your website or blog you should! Readers of your blog or visitors to your website are already within your social network. If they like your blog or website, chances are they’ll enjoy your tweets too.

Catchy graphics are the easiest way to grab the attention of your reader and send them to your Twitter page.

There are two easy options for adding Twitter to your blog or website.
1.) Use the Official button and widget available from Twitter.
2.) Add Twitter manually.

Conversations with my children

One of the things that is great about being a stay-at-home mommy is that you are there when the important questions arise. Whenever they arise. Who better for your child to get the answers to their deepest most intimate questions from?

This happened during bath time in our household last night. The boys bathe at night and the girls in the morning…but since I’m home solo we are all in the bedroom together while I oversee the baths.

Son 1 (age 6):
Mom! We have two little balls inside our body! {laughter}

Son 2 (age 6):
Yeah, and we can move them around.
They roll around.

Son 1 :
Why do we have these 2 little balls in here?

Daughter (age 4):
Stop touching your privates! You are not supposed to touch your privates. Right, Mommy?

Son 1:
Yes you can. You can always touch your own body and your own privates. Right Mommy?

One of the things that is great about being a stay-at-home mother with a road warrior father and 4 children is that you can easily deflect those questions without being too obvious.

Mom: (weak smile) Yes and….Oh my gosh Pumpkin! What is that on your face? Does it hurt honey? Oh, I think we need to put something on that! Come with me before the baby starts crying. Boys, put your PJ’s on and get in bed. Mommy is so tired and if you hurry I can read one book if the baby doesn’t get back up. Hurry!

I know some of you are disappointed in this homeschooling mother’s pathetic avoidance of answering this question. But really, shouldn’t I save some of these great parenting moments for Big Daddy?

I promise. When the girls start having questions about the things they are finding on their body, I’ll be there. After all, by that time everyone should be sleeping through the night and brushing their own teeth. I’ll be so well rested I won’t know what to do with myself!

Art with canned food


Canstruction is a unique food charity that hosts design/build competitions. Teams of architects, engineers, and students mentored by these professionals, compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. It takes 8-12 weeks and thousands of cans of food to create each structure.

The results are displayed to the public as magnificent sculpture exhibits in each city where a competition is held. The public is invited to donate canned food at the time of the exhibition. At the close of the exhibitions all of the canned food used in the structures is donated to local food banks for distribution to emergency feeding programs that include pantries, soup kitchens, elderly and day care centers. It’s amazing what these artists have come up with, isn’t it?

Thanks to Of Mice & Ramen for posting about this on your blog. I would have never heard of this otherwise. I cannot wait to take my kids!

Please go here to see if Canstruction is coming to your city. Palm Beach county residents should go here for local exhibit information.
