Mean mama #1

I'm often told that I'm the meanest mama in the world. So I have decided to document why this is so. 

This morning, I'm mean because I won't let M2 have root beer with her oatmeal.

She eventually decided on a smoothie instead.

A sad day....

Throwing away baby pacis and moving on to 6+ month pacis.

School christmas gifts 2012

Somehow I made time for classmate/teacher gifts for christmas this year. Teacher gifts were tricky because I have 2 in school now (well one in school and one in MDO) and I'm on a budget. We recently got a sparkling new Sam's Club and I found a box of 10 cute metal ornaments with 3 truffles inside for $15. Less than $2 for a gift? Yes please!! For their main teachers (3), I also splurged and got $10 Starbucks gift cards.

For Maddie's kindergarten class, I bought 2 boxes of cherry candy canes ($.98 per box) and 2 dozen 10-color shuttle pens ($12 per dozen w/ tax and shipping). Attached a cute "have a colorful christmas tag" and voila!

For Maren's class (2 & 3 year olds), I wasn't quite as crafty. They got Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers ($1 per box) with an Avery address label gift tag.

I'm pretty proud of my frugal self!
