Raising Boys

Man oh man, raising boys is hard work. Their energy alone is enough to make me go crazy sometimes. I have three boys. Jack is 6, Luke is 3 and Ty is 2. They are constant balls of energy. Their love for their friends, their family, their toys (especially the coveted Pokemon cards) just amazes me. Sometimes I wish I could get excited about something as little as going out for pizza; Or running through the Slip-N-Slide. I remember those days when I got so excited about the littelest things. When you get older, things just aren't as exciting as they were when were little. When it's particularly crazy here, I try to picture the house 20 years from now. The windows will be free of hand prints, and it'll be really quiet here. I'll miss the noise and energy some day.

Shopping Cart Cover

I read an article not to long ago about shopping cart handle bars having more germs than public restrooms. Yuck! At the end of the story the reporter said your only option to keep germs away from your children riding with you, was to spend about $40.00 on a cover that fits inside the baby seat portion of the cart. Guess what? It's not the only option! I created a product that fits on the handle bar of most shopping carts. You can put your child's snacks in the container so they can feed themselves. Your hands are free to shop, while your child is content feeding themselves. Just think, you don't need to keep touching the handle bar then trying to hand out a snack one at a time to your child. Less germs? I think so!

In about 3 weeks, May 30th to be exact, will be a viable web-site. I'm going to have inventory to sell and I'll be anxiously awaiting my first customer. I am so nervous. I have been working on finding ways to promote my web-site with little to no money. Mainly, I'm trying to get to the media. It is hard to figure out how to penetrate that market in the most efficient way. I want them to read my press release, not throw it into the trashcan. We'll see. Hopefully I'll get so much press, I won't know what to do with myself :) .
