Quick Tip : Umbrella Stroller Safety

Discovered this great tip at ParentHacks.com :

To keep our umbrella stroller from tipping over from the weight of the diaper bag on the back, we bought a pair of ankle weights and put them on just above the front wheels. This keeps the stroller from tipping over especially when the child gets out.

Giveaway : Mommy Grace

Mommy Grace : Erasing Your Mommy Guilt On Friday, March 27th…

Julie from Mom Two Ways is giving away a total of 5 copies of Mommy Grace: Erasing Your Mommy Guilt by Dr. Sheila Shuller Coleman.

To enter the contest, add a comment to Julie’s blog. So easy!

Universally, mothers tend to feel they are not good enough at parenting and fear they are harming their children by not being perfect.

In Mommy Grace: Erasing Your Mommy Guilt, Sheila Schuller Coleman offers overwhelmed moms short but emotive stories of authentic motherhood from her own and others’ experiences—foibles and all—and offers comfort by showing how God makes up for human weakness with His own strength.

Because Sheila shares lessons learned the hard way by real moms rather than giving difficult instructions for better mothering, readers will leave the book feeling encouraged rather than lectured.

For every mom who feels she’s not quite up to the colossal job of parenting, Mommy Grace is full of hope and compassion.

Monday Mission : “Git-R-Done”

I am a master of procrastination. Give me something that I don’t really want to do, and I’ll find a zillion ways to avoid doing it.

Today’s fine example : contact the insurance company.

On Friday, I stopped by the pharmacy to pick up Amanda’s prescription for antibiotics (re: ear infection). The total charge was nearly $75 for the generic form of the medication!

Since we have a decent health insurance plan, I questioned the price and was told that the pharmacy has our insurance information on file, but had been instructed by the insurance company to charge a $75 copay for the prescription!

Now, we normally pay a $10 copay for the generic form of any prescribed medication, so this answer concerned me…

Anyway, long-story-short, I need to call our health insurance company today to get it all straightened out (“Git-R-Done”). Ugh!

So, what about you? What important task have you been dreading? How do you motivate yourself to finally “Git-R-Done”? I’d love to hear from you!
