Mom’s Best Cereal: there’s just something about it

And we have a winner! Annie K., you win the Moby!

Eli feels so Oprah.

So Oprah

I made a video of the drawing. Laila picked the winner out of her pink cowgirl hat.

It would be awesome to try and do one of these per month. Hey, I wanted to do giveaways for CF awareness during the month of May. But it’s CF awareness 24/7 at my house.

I figure that, yes, I write about life with a baby with CF, but by and large, that means I’m just scribbling about life here. And in life, everyone loves free stuff.

Good news, the June contest is already lined up!

Free Mom’s Best cereal!

Have you ever had Mom’s Best?

It lives up to its name.

Look for the post shortly.

A Mary Kay makeover in noir, Part 3

My journey into the hard-boiled world of Mary Kay makeovers continues in Part 3, the final installment.

I have arrived at an office with my sidekick, Spiderman Cowgirl Princess after being told this deal involves my son’s life. I am shocked to find shoddy office furniture and question the validity that this deal has money in it. I’m told the money’s in the science and Mary’s in the back. SCP runs off to work alone. I go to the back to find Mary but instead encounter Lacey. I can’t believe what she asks me to do.
