Some of the softest prefolds IMAGINABLE; giveaway...

We were just plotzing over prefolds at Mothering HQ. I received a 4-pack of organic cotton “Giggle Better Basics” prefolds–an Under the Nile exclusive. Dooood. I used to cloth-diaper my boy (and now he’s almost 6) and the prefolds were…fine..you know…the broken-in white t-shirts of my diaper selection. They were great everyday staples. And I also had other favorites that had the cutest print, or the sweetest design, or were incredibly reliable. But these prefolds are like the ultra-high-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets one would encounter in a super-fancy... read more

Spring Chocolate Giveaway from SJAAK'S.

I am sitting here, in total bliss, as I have just sampled organic Sjaak’s chocolate. People. I ate a dark-chocolate lavender truffle in the shape of a heart, wrapped in purple shiny foil. And I really can’t spell. You wouldn’t believe how much I’ve had to fix errors. My brain does not want to bother itself with SPELLING right now. Someone should run tests on how chocolate interferes with other comparatively dreary brain functions. I am giving away a Sjaak’s Vegan, Organic “Limited Edition Bunny Truffle Gift Box.” Nine chocolates. One each of the following:... read more

New Book Giveaway: Lisa Kogan's Someone Will Be With You Shortly

Lisa Kogan is probably most well-known for writing a monthly column on her “perfectly imperfect life” (single motherhood, writing, friendships and family) for O Magazine. I have her new book in front of me, a copy provided by Harper Collins as a reader giveaway. So, leave a comment telling us who your favorite mama author is and why, and I will enter your name in a drawing and pick the lucky winner on Monday, March 22.

The Latest Cloth Diaper Giveaway: Knickernappies!

Good morning, mamas. Wait, it’s 1pm. I am not surprised, it’s been that kind of a Monday! We spent Mother’s Day in a baseball stadium in the hot sun. The Albuquerque team won. Mind you, I’m not a sports person per se. But it was just right–the stadium wasn’t too big, or too dinky. A strapping Albuquerque Isotope baseball player handed me a red carnation, because I was a mommy. *grin* It’s hard not to get a kick out of that. There was a playground on the premises. I had a terrific hot dog loaded with sauerkraut, ketchup, mustard, relish, and some sliced... read more
