Ultimate Blog Party 2009

5 Minutes for Mom is having a HUGE party this year – and everyone has the chance to win!! There will be TONS of giveaways, and this post is my participation in it! So be sure to enter my giveaway by commenting on this post, and then go check out everyone else’s at 5 Minutes for Mom!

If you’ve been hanging around here for any amount of time, you all know that my goal is to try and have an “entertaining“, or even “humorous” (on a good day) blog. And I also like big words. And teaching them to my two year old.

Well, Eric Ruhalter wrote a perfect book for me!! It combines big words WITH humor. Only they’re better than regular ole’ big words, because they’re MADE UP big words! The book is “The Kid Dictionary: A Book of Words that Parents Need But Don’t Have.” He creates awesome words such as:

WHYAHRHEA (WHY-uh-REE-uh) n: An inquisitive toddler’s chain of questions rattled off in rapid-fire succession.

BROFITTI (bro-FEE-tee) v: To scribble with permanent magic marker on the face of a younger sibling.

INVISIBOOBOO (in-VIZ-uh-boo-boo) n: – The site on a child’s body where you unnecessarily applied a Band-Aid to appease them when they got hurt, though did not bleed.

THREEMAGEDDON (three-muh-GED-in)-n.: The supposed hellfire and brimstone that would erupt should an annoyed mother reach the third digit while counting aloud to 3 to get a non-compliant child to get his act together.. “ONE !….TWOOOOOOO !!!!….. “

SNOOT (SNEWT) v: To suck in rather than to blow out when blowing your nose (Ali STILL does this EVERY time I try and get her to blow her nose!!).

REGURGITIGHTEN (re-GUHR-jih-tie-tuhn) v: To brace yourself upon ascertaining that your ill child is about to barf on you.

This book is full of priceless and hilarious words that will really help you see the bright side of some possibly not-so-bright parenting moments.

And now you can win a copy of this book!! Just leave a comment on this post, and you will be entered to win. You may leave extra comments for extra entries if you subscribe or follow my blog.

You have until Monday, April 6th to enter, and the winner will be chosen randomly and announced on April 7th by 3pm.

    I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.

    I own a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years.

    From the comments I have already received, appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use.

    I have been so touched by the comments that I have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size.

    I really do want to bless people!!! I want my blog to encourage others. I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!
