Today I got myself this wonderful award.....

Have you ever got one? Please say that you have, just so I know that I am not the only one out there. ;o)

I got my son a zero on his reading log today. Wonderful old mom!
I feel so bad, I sent his teacher an email, begging for forgiveness. I mean what more can I do?

Everyday Devon is to get his reading done for the day before I get home. Then he starts on his homework and what he don't understand I help him with when I get home. Then no matter how much he thinks he knows, mom always goes behind to double check. ;o)

This past Friday he had his reading log laid out there on the bar for me to sign. I read the summery he had wrote him being in 5th grade, I feel he is old enough not to have to read to me anymore and can do this task by himself. I sign off and lay the paper back down, we go to do somethings in town. Then the paper just gets shuffled where it should not be on Saturday when I am cleaning. I should have handed it straight to Devon soon as it was signed it and said put this in your book bag, knowing it was due on Monday. Stupid, Stupid me!

He goes to school, and his teacher ask him about it, he said it must be at home. Then in turn she gives him a zero. I know, I know, they are in 5th grade they have to be responsible. However, I feel this is totally my fault, not Devon's. I was the irresponsible mom the one that needs to learn to take more time on little things like this. Today when she told him he was getting a zero, I know it must have just about killed him as it about killed me to hear him tell me that he was getting a zero because of me.

Sniff... Sniff...... Are there any other moms like me out there?

Toddler Bites Review and Giveaway!

Calling all Mom's and Dad's!!

Kathy Hutto owner of Toddler Bites has the answer to save us time and stop us from worring about our children choking when it comes to food.

I was so excited when we got our Toddler Bites Hotdog Cutter in the mail the other week and I could not wait to try it out. Last night was the night, I wanted us to do something quick and easy for dinner since it was Wednesday and we had church and homework, etc. (Never enough hours in the day, type day.)

When I got everything together I put Chandlers hotdog on his plate and could not wait to try the hotdog cutter. My older son Devon was just as excited as I was. ;o)

Boy did this little cutter help save me time when it come time to cut up Chandler's hotdog! I did not have to stand there trying to cut the hotdog and worry about not trying to cut myself. It was so fast and easy and look how small the peaces of hotdog turned out. I don't have to worry about Chandler choking! What a great idea Kathy has come up with.

Another great thing is your on kids will be able to use this when they get a little bit older and you will not have to worry about them getting cut! It's all made from plastic and there are no sharp edges for them to get cut on.

Toddler Bites has a great line of products that are sure to help all Mom's and Dad's out when it comes to saving time and most importantly keeping your child from choking! Make sure to stop by Toddler Bites website and see what else they have to offer!

How would you like to win your very own hotdog cutter?

Kids will be kids.....

"Kids will be kids... That's why we're here... Our student health plan helps protect kids while they are being kids."

What a great saying! Don't you think? With all the health care issues in the news lately, it really makes everyone start thinking about health insurance. Especially for our kids, but you ask who can afford it? That's one problem I believe that all of us are facing out there today, everyone is trying to find good health insurance at a good price.

I have come today to tell you a little about a wonderful insurance company, it's not a new start up company. This company has been around for a while. They provide great insurance as I personally have had a plan with them years ago. I have recently found out about a student plan that may be just want you have been looking for. The health plan is available for K12 students who range from ages 5-18 and ages 4-18 in Texas. What's the plan you ask?

UnitedHealthcare StudentResouces

Over 2000, not all public school systems/districts throughout the US participate with UHCSR to offer this plan. From small rural schools to the largest in the nation such as LA Unified and Miami/Dade County schools. UHCSR's program is not only available through many participateng school districts and participating private schools. It's nationally available through schools that belong to the Association of Christian Schools International.

Since this plan has been relased the
UnitedHealthcare StudentResources
has earned parent confidence and a national reputation by offering only the finest, HIPAA- compliant student health plans.

United Healthcare has come up with a wonderful health plan that offers protection/coverage for injury AND sickness, 24/7/365. This plan has being designed to be affordable at $588.00 per policy year or $98.00 every two months. Parents can enroll their student at any point in the school year. What a great savings this plan will be for many parents that thought that they could not afford health care for their son or daughter.

While this K12 Health Plan can provide a level of protection for uninsured children, it is also being purchased by many families who have higher deductible with their employers coverage. If some parents have to pay hundred or even thousands to meet their employers plan deductive, the K12 Health Plan can reimburse them for their children's eligible medical expenses while they are working toward meeting their employers plan deductible. UHCSR has even challenged national trends by INCREASING benefits while KEEPING the premium at 2008 levels.

I encourage each and everyone of you that has children and need health insurance or even if you are paying to much, to check out the full plan details and easy online enrollment at the award winning site

Once you are there you can click on Plans & Pricing tab and enter your school district name or even just a few letters to find and select your child's school. Click View Plan Materials to see the plan brochure, and review the Student Health Plan Coverage page regarding Student Injury and Sickness Benefits. Then when ready to enroll, click the Enroll Now button on the Plans & Pricing tab. Complete some information about the child, select the Injury and Sickness plan, create an account, and make a payment by credit card or e-check.

I ask you what do you have to loose? It will be worth your time to go in and look at the plans and prices they have to offer. You just might be surprised at what you find.
