Not Me! Monday: GIVEAWAY!

Like McMama.....I too, am a miracle blanket lover.

I too, raved about it on my blog.

I too, was selected to receive a free Miracle Blanket....only my babies are WAY past swaddling stage.
::sniff, sniff::

So I am giving one away!!!!!

Mom's NEED TO KNOW about this amazing product that gave *this* mom of triplets a BLESSED FIVE hours of *straight* sleep. That translates into like OODLES of sleep for a mom of one baby! :)

More later, on to not me'ing.

First things first....
I did NOT sneak in and take a picture of Joel sucking his fingers and sleeping away peacefully in his snuggly HALO sleepsack! As I state so much that I am sure you are tired of hearing it....he is too cute for words!!!!!!
This is Joel minutes later, greeting me for the morning with the smile. He's yet to realize that he's the last to wake and his sisters are already eating breakfast. He's happy now.......but that's all about to change. The only thing that makes Joel angry is an empty belly.

Well, most of you know that I have been having a terrible time making a decision about school for the kids.

I thought I had made a decision.

I thought WE had made a decision.

Then a woman at church, whom I still have not been able to find to thank, gave me some incredibly valuable advice. I realized that neither Josh nor I was 100% behind homeschooling our kids, and that since my husband was not backing me up homeschooling was never going to work.

So.....Reagan has Kindergarten registration in only a matter of DAYS!!!!! ACK!!!!! I DID NOT cry when I got the registration packet, and I did NOT cry when I called for her vaccination records, and I still can NOT believe that we are taking these tiny little steps toward sending our first child to school!!!!!! NOT ME!!!!!!! This is terrible!!! No one told me it was this hard!!!!!!

On to the contest! All you need to do is leave a comment. You can keep it for your baby, for your soon to be born baby, for a shower gift, or for anyone who could use this. I really, really, really believe in this product. It's head's above any other product out there!!!

I will be drawing a number from a number generator, and whoever I pick will receive Miracle Blanket! Tell anyone you know that may be expecting a baby! It's for today only!!! Much Love everyone, and Good Luck!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.


Following Him

OK, no miracle blanket needed here since I am only 20. But as for Kinder, if she has trouble or there is something wrong or if it does not work, then you could try homeschool. Several of your bloggers including me will back you up! Have a great Monday!

3 Bay B Chicks

Today is a very big day in the Where’s Wenda? Contest. I am visiting all of the SITS followers. Can I do it? There are around 1000 followers. Oh my! Better grab my cup of coffee and get on my way. Be sure to visit Hot Chocolate Caramel Mocha and Three Bay B Chicks as part of your contest entry.



The triplets are grown, but another 'bump' will soon be shown! I would love to win a Miracle Blanket!


What beautiful blue eyes!! I can't imagine how hard it must be to send your baby off to kindergarten!

My youngest loved to be swaddled. But the little chunk outgrew all of swaddler blankets! I'd love to try the miracle blanket on her!


I have read about these blankets. Only one of my trio likes to be swaddled and I was up three times last night re-wrapping her (that was all she needed). What a solid night of sleep could do for me! I hope my number gets drawn :)

Thanks for the contest!


I would love to be included in your drawing for a miracle blanket.



I would love the Miracle Blanket to give my sister-in-law who is expecting her first in April. My youngest is almost 11 months old.

On the school thing...I ran a daycare for years and when it was time to send my oldest to school I had a hard time. But he needed it, after being home for so long with me he had a very hard time being left anywhere, even his grams. But now he is a very outgoing, social butterfly. Sending him to school was the best decision for us. Just look into your heart and see what is right for you. You can always change after. good luck.


Don't need a miracle blanket here as no more babies here and no one I know is having any BUT I just wanted to stop by say hi and read for the fun of quintooples!

TV Watching Mama

I have heard so many wonderful things about the miracle blanket! I hope to someday get my hands on one!


My wife sent me over here to comment for the chance at a miracle blanket for one of our tripets-to-be :)


Five hours of uninterrupted sleep sounds like a wonderful thing.




Casey and Karen

Wow! You have your hands full with five adorable kiddos! My baby is not sleeping well, and I wish I had a miracle blanket when she was small enough for one. If I win, I will be passing the blanket onto my friend who is pregnant with twins after a long, long time trying. My email is karenfronk @ hotmail. com if I win :)

Kristin & Anthany

I could certainly use a miracle blanket. I'm expecting triplets who should come sometime in April. :)


Aww, Sending them off to Kindergarten is a big milestone & it does just break your heart to see them so 'grown' and independent. Then have to pat yourself on the back & say "you did something right". My oldest started 4th grade at the 'big' school and I cried like a baby all day his first day. I'm telling doesn't get easier when they transition either! :(


That is really nice of you to be giving away a miracle blanket, definitely one of my top 5 picks on the HAVE to HAVE list. Your children are getting so big and are such cuties! :)

Melissa, Multi-Tasking Mama

It is hard to send them to school- I practically clung to the school bus with all three of mine but IT WILL BE OKAY! Just pray your way through it- it is the first of many letting go moments we mama's must face!


I have heard all about these Miracle Blankets..and I used to try and swaddle my baby, but that never held. I would love to participate in your blog giveaway! Thanks!
Kelly :)

Simply Complex

I want to try one of these so bad! My little baby loves to be swaddled. And since I will have more babies to come, this would be great!


My oldest will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall. Oh how the time has flown by!

I would love to be in your contest. I swaddled my first, second & third baby!!


Your children have beautiful blue eyes! Good luck with Kindergarten, I'm still 2 years away from that. Thak God!


I sent my oldest to Kindergarten this was easier for him than it was for me! Having been a first grade teacher for 7 years before deciding to stay home helped in our decision to send him to public school. It also doesn't hurt that I taught at that school and it is awesome.

I wouldn't worry too much about her having trouble. As long as you are giving her support at home and helping her with the skills they are teaching at school then she should be fine. If you see during the year that she needs to be challenged more than you and the teacher should be able to come up with things you could do with her at home as well...I'm sure it will be so easy because you do NOT have your hands full already anyway :)


Triplets on the way - the Miracle blanket sounds like a life-saver! Thanks for giving one away :)


I would love to win this blanket! I have three baby showers for my sister and two SIL. It would be a great gift!! Your little one is too cute!


i would love to try this blanket on my third child that is on the way. please enter me into your contest! :)


I currently have a 4 year old son and two year old triplets and I am
expecting surprise baby #5! I would LOVE to win this blanket so I could possibly get some sleep when baby number 5 arrives!
Thank you!! :)


I've never even heard of these things! but since you're raving, I admit, I'm well past curious. Sign me up? :)

Heather, Stan and the kids

Elaine A.

I'm expecting so I would love to win a miracle blanket, thanks for the chance!

And may I say that your children have the MOST beautiful blue eyes!! And my oldest starts Kindergarten in the Fall too. Be still my heart.
