So my love affair with Amazon really started at Christmas time when I decided to by all of my gifts online. I did this more because the Mover was just at an age where it was tough to go out shopping for hours and I always felt like I wasted so much time. I did end up buying a few things on Black Friday but that was it. Everything I bought was free shipping and I think I spent quite a bit less.
I have been wanting to buy some Christian Parenting type books as you may recall. Well I am finally doing it=). I was a little annoyed that most parenting books are written by men. I mean God bless our men truly but really are they the authority? We are dealing with crazy babies most of the time and they are off... what..getting a degree in Child Psychology? So I pretty much feel like I would relate better to a female perspective. I ordered two though.
First the female perspective that was recommended by my sis.
Also I ordered some bath toys for the Mover who LOVES the water and splashing like a mad man. And a book on Motherhood (can't remember what it was called) and a yoga and pilates video (I have had a lot of hip pain since my boy was born- hoping to strengthen my core a bit..if I actually do it but that is another story)
Oh and a sleeper for my boy. Grand total?? $35.00! That was less that I just spent at Kmart on easter basket goodies for the Mover! One of the books was $1! How cool is that?! I love Amazon. I just entered to win a Kindle on thepioneerwoman.com. I could handle that.
On a different note I would pay a lot for someone to decifer my son's bad sleeping habits that have no pattern at all. He is happier and less whinny when he gets enough sleep but then right now when he wakes up after a 20 min. nap- angry and screaming..what the heck?? The house is quiet and I know he needs sleep. I don't get it buddy.
