AuPairCare: Live-In Childcare

Thanks to MomSelect I was introduced to an interesting concept- live-in childcare. Now that concept in itself isn't new, but the idea of live-in childcare with the care giver being from a different country is an interesting one. Children are able to learn first hand about other cultures, languages and ways of life. It's a service I would love to be able to provide for my children (and for, but our budget does not allow it. However, if yours does, I have an awesome giveaway for you! I have a certificate for a free application fee ($300 value) available to the first person who leave me a comment asking for it! How easy is that? Even if you may be interested in the future, make sure you check out their site:

Happy Birthday, Seth!

My oldest has made it to 6 years old. I can't believe it. It seems like only yesterday I was in the hospital begging the nurses for more drugs and the doctor for a C-Section. That being said, you are an awesome child in your own amazing way. I enjoy each day with you, and I look forward to many more. I love you.

UPDATE! A New Giveaway & FREE Stuff!

*** Ann is the proud winner of this giveaway! I have notified Ann by email of her winnings!***

Thanks to MomSelect we have a new giveaway! It's an awesome new product called Mobistories! MobiStories makes digital books for children. Books are available to purchase in numerous download formats to be played using your iPhone, iPod, Macintosh and Windows computer, DVD’s, MP3’s, Zune, iTunes, YouTube, Viddler, Revver, MySpace, and FaceBook. Each of these illustrated stories is narrated and contains music too. The site offers a lot of different selections specifically for children ages 1 to 10 years old. A brief preview of each of the stories including sound and picture is available on the site.

I think this is a great concept for families on the go. I consider them a little pricey, but worth the money if you have the equipment to play the stories already and need entertainment for the kids on a regular basis.

MobiStories is generously offering my readers up to $15.00 in downloads for free. Simply go to and select books from the library and use promotion code BSM142A at checkout.

MobiStories and MomSelect has also generously given me another code, good for $20, to give to the winner of this giveaway. To enter, visit the MobiStories site and then leave a comment on this post telling me the name of one book you’d purchase if you won and who you’d purchase it for. To receive an extra entry, post about this giveaway on your blog and then come back here and leave me a comment telling me you have done so. Good luck!

Contest ends Friday 11/07/08 at 12:00pm CST. Comments must contain the requested information to be eligible. The winner will be selected at random and they must contact me to confirm they wish to receive the prize within 2 days of my email notifying them they’ve won.
