Ever changed a diaper on a baby boy?

For those that have, you probably know instantly where I'm going with this. Let's just say that you can get "sprayed" in this endeavor. It's happened to me a couple of times as I suppose it has to any mom of a boy. :) Well, I was just online tonight and came across these: PeePeeTeepees. I simply could not stop laughing. Check them out and make sure you scroll down to see the little hat ones with the pompom ball tops!
Oh, and a comment I saw earlier was, " I heard that they can shoot off like rockets if your LO has a strong enough stream." I am just cracking up over here!

Exciting News

I am so proud of my hubby! He has been a worship leader for many years now and during that time has written some songs to help lead congregations in worship. We just found out that one of his songs, Hallelujah Forever, is going to be published in a book of modern worship songs. I'm so excited and so proud of him that I just had to share! :) I don't know anything else at this time about the book, or I'd try to presell it to you! I told Tim that even if we get a free copy of it, we should buy another so that we can use one copy and frame his song from the other.

I'm in love

I have lots of fingerprints and marks on the walls of my house - well I did. I'm sure you will tell me as I would tell others, "When you have children, that's just what happens." I have tried all sorts of soaps and sprays to clean them with very little success. I had recently resigned myself to live with them until we repainted or something. When this man came into my life:

These magic erasers are amazing. Put a little water on them and scrub and fingerprints and marks just disappear. It was addicting.... Each time I tried to stop, I saw the line of clean wall which made the uncleaned wall look all the more dirty. I have found that it also works great to take scum off the shower walls and tub. Wow - I'm in love.

One caution, I have heard that some children have shown up at the hospital with chemical burns from these things, so don't try to clean your children with them! And you might want to be careful if you let them use it too.

So while this whole cleaning frenzy was going on, Michael kept pointing to the box and saying, "What is that." I told him it was Mr. Clean and when the question was repeated, that it was a special cleaning sponge. This conversation repeated for 10 minutes or so before Michael said, "No Mommy, his legs!" I couldn't help but laugh. We settled on the fact that Mr. Clean's legs were hiding which mildly satisfied him although he kept looking strangely at the man.
