Networking Mama!

Story goes, that a girl can glean a lot of great advice from her fellow mamas! It's so great hearing what other mom's discover through trial and error, and even better is it that we ENJOY sharing our knowledge!

I learned tonight that a little lanolin goes a long way...great for those sore nipples, but also works wonders on sore baby butts! Who knew?! Speaking of sore nipples (I do a little lactation consulting, also), a "miracle cream" (you'll thank me later) that you MUST try is, "All Purpose Nipple Ointment". Oh my, how it worked wonders on my traumatized nipples! You know, when you are at that point when the baby starts crying 'cuz she's hungry, you start crying right along with her 'cuz you know you're in for some major pain?! Yup, give it a shot (it is a prescription, so you'll need to find a knowledgeable provider). Like I said, you'll thank me later! :) Oh, and in case you're wondering, just 'cuz it's "all purpose", don't use it on your chapped lips...not that I'd know first hand...or anything.

This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Crock-Pot Fajitas

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out.
