Friday's Business Meeting

There are many, many things on my mind I feel the need to share. Let's get down to business, shall we?

1. Casa de Phillips' Saving Summer Carnival is ON! On Monday, June 2nd be prepared to share how your kids/family/self/dog/etc are going to spend the upcoming summer. This will be a great place to share ideas regarding activities for the summer months. Stay tuned for more info!

2. The Graco Quatro Tour Deluxe Stroller, which is meant for only one child, can also hold a 30 pound two year old perched upon its cup holder. Again we found ourselves outside in the heat this morning and were miles from our car when Isaac became puny from the extreme weather. Being the loving mother that I am, I forced him to continue walking towards our car because I was feeling a bit puny my own self and could not fathom carrying him and pushing the stroller. Finally I decided to plop him up on the cup holder, said a quick prayer for its durability, and marched on towards the car.

3. The BlogRoll at SavethePhillipsFamily is now up. Yippee! However, I only put blogs on my blogroll that have their own blogroll with our blog listed. This is not a vanity thing, but more of a security thing. Trust me, I read more blogs than are listed. I just felt a bit uneasy putting blog links to people's blogs that might not be so comfortable with such a listing. This is the World Wide Web, you know. Anyway, if your blog isn't listed and you would like for it to be...just leave me a comment and I will happily add you. You might have also noted there are a few blogs listed in the blogroll of people I obviously do not know, such as Beth Moore's blog (how I would love to know Beth Moore though) or Rocks in My Dryer. Be sure to check these out because they are great reads!

4. You can now email SavethePhillipsFamily at savethephillipsfamily@hotmail.com. Look for a button to appear on the sidebar soon. However, if you have my private email....continue to email me there first!

5. The following video is a prime example of what it means to be the second child. Evelyn was finishing her bottle at lunch time while I got Isaac down for his nap. This is what I found when I returned to the kitchen:

That video is great! I keep waiting for one of those moments where Tate falls asleep at a random place. I guess I need to have a second kid for that. :)

Happy Friday!

That looks better than a Lazy-Boy.

Feel free to add mine to the blogroll. I have gone public again with my blog because to many of my friends were having trouble reading it.

It is reinchjennifer.blogspot.com

I will be waiting anxiously to post on June 2nd! Being the bad blogger that I am, I just want to reinforce that I will actually be participating. : ) We have you listed on our blogroll, but whether or not we are on yours doesn't really matter; however, you should know it won't make me uncomfortable.

Did Evelyn continue her nap in her high chair, or did you move her to the comfort of her own bed? I have been known to leave my own sleeping first child wherever he lays his little head. My second kid obviously doesn't stand a chance!

Sorry for the long comment, but I also wanted to ask you what kind of diaper bag you have and whether or not you like it for use with two kiddos. I am in the market for a new diaper bag and definitely need one to hold snacks/cups (and maybe diapers as my child has some sort of aversion to the toilet) for a toddler plus essential items for a newborn. Any recommendations?

There is nothing sweeter than a sleeping child...wherever they may be.

You can add us to the carnival blog. I am interested in seeing other people's plans and we have some as well to share. Great idea!

Can you email me? I wanted to get the information on the coasters you made that year for Christmas.
