I love Huggies Enjoy the Ride points, you can use points to play games (see my post here for tips on winning).  Notice in the picture above I won $10.  Or, save up points for a free package of Huggies diapers. Points are found inside diaper packages (one time use codes only), and sometimes I post ones that everyone can use online. Here’s some new codes:

  • NONE right now 🙁

There is also a new poll to take (1 pt) and a 3 videos to watch (2 pt. each)

Simple Chat! I added a fun chat feature on my sidebar. You don’t have to login or sign up to use it! Just click on “Guest” and type in your name, and you can chat with me or any other online reader! Yeah! Ask me questions or chat about deals. Click on “show all” to see if I am online or not, and see who else is online.  I will have my husband look into it more and make sure it is not slowing down my site, but if my site still is loading in under 2 seconds, we will keep it!

If I’m logged in, it will say “Deidre” with my picture by it so you know its me.  I will mostly be logged in at night time. If anyone says anything inappropriate while I’m not logged in, you can email me their name they were using, and I can ban their IP address.  No personal info is stored on the chat – again, you don’t register or sign up.  Just type in your name and start chatting!

Top 10 This Week! Also on my sidebar, this lists top posts within 7 days in order of most views.

New Picture! At the bottom of my site you can now see a picture of me and my husband.  He is hot eh’?  A sweetie too!  And yes, I know my hair looks better straight and with highlights in that picture then curly and dark (it is curly and dark in 1/2 my training videos) but don’t worry I’m changing it back soon.

New Coupon Training section: This is a large work-in-progress. I’m re-doing all my training info – expect more in weeks to come!

We’re Expanding: If you are someone who loves finding the best deals and wants to be on our team, let us know! This is a great money-making opportunity for people who don’t have time to run a full-time blog, but just want some easy money! Email me for details at deidre(at)cuckooforcoupondeals.com.

Any other features you would like to see or things you’d like my site to focus on more?

Upload a picture of your little one, and I Caught the Tooth Fairy will put the tooth fairy in free if you use code “fairy-proof”. You can download the picture, send it to your friends on Facebook etc…  I thought it was cute because my daughter is wearing fairy boots in the picture above! You get to choose from different fairies, place them where you want, and re-size the fairy to any size.

Thanks, Amy

Someone is building a house across the street from us, and I see in the junk pile tons of 2×4 pieces of wood that have nails in them, but aside from that are near perfect.  A true frugalista, I head over and ask the contractor why they would toss those.  He mumbles something about must only use perfect pieces.  I say I want them and he says go for it.

I started daydreaming of what the wood could become in my head.   I am doing a giveaway for CSN stores soon and while browsing their sites ran across a nice picture of some twin beds that had built in storage in them, and a pull-out bed underneath, and thought, wow what a great use of space!   My daughter has a wooden twin bed so I thought, maybe my husband can take this wood and make a pull-out drawer underneath the bed.  I even show him the picture.

Well yesterday I peek in the garage to see what he has been working on all day, and wouldn’t you know -he’s made some saw horses.   I asked him about his plans for the rest and he said he’s making his own windmill base.  He’s planning on making our own windmill in our backyard.  He even shows me the pictures online of the motor he’s going to build (or alternator? I can’t remember) Anyways, I wonder if I should blog about the windmill project as he does it.

It is funny how men and women look at wood and dream of totally different projects! Truth is, mine probably wouldn’t have worked with 2×4’s anyway, so here’s to you my hubby, good luck on your windmill!

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended, view winner here

I know what you are thinking – why aren’t your kids posing in the picture like they normally are?!?! No excuses here, sometimes kids just aren’t in picture taking moods.

We received the Your Baby Can Read Volume 1 set from Your Baby Can about 2 months ago.  It has a complete guide on how their system works.   One part of it is to do each volume for 2 or 3 months before moving onto the next volume.

The first volume includes:

  • A DVD explaining how to use each of the following to maximize their effectiveness, and how often to do each:
  • Another DVD which shows teaches words incorporated in the flop-open book and cards.   This was my 1 year old’s favorite part of the system.   She never watches t.v., but she really liked watching the kids on this dvd and seemed interested in learning the words.
  • A book with flop-open pages with a word on one side, and when you flip the tab there’s a picture of what the word represents.   This was my 3 year old daughter’s favorite part of the system.   I believe she enjoys reading and even though it wasn’t about story lines, she just loves opening the flaps and reading with me.
  • 5 hard cards with words on both sides and tabs to pull them open.  Inside are pictures representing the words on the card. Also their is a blank card you can use erasable markers on.

The system is really for people who are good at doing repetitive things and I learned I am not one of them.  At first we were really on schedule and never missed a day.  Then a few days would go in-between sessions.  Then we’d remember and do our sessions, but hardly twice a day as we were supposed to.

If you are good at keeping schedules and make sure to do the sessions, I think you could see improvement in your child’s ability to understand written words.  My 1 year old daughter would put her arms up when the words “arms up” came on the screen.  I thought that was pretty cool.  I don’t think she was reading, but more understanding it meant to put her arms up.

My 3 year old daughter is not the type that can hold still and wander away during the DVD time.  But she came back and loved the flop-book and sliding cards and was more interested in those.  I wish I had been more diligent in doing this everyday, I am going to continue on with the system to see if she learns the words.  Right now she hasn’t yet.  She has, however, figured out that when I point at the picture of a tiger, and then point at the word tiger that the word represents the tiger.  I’ll point at the tiger and then at the word and say “what’s this word” and she says “tiger”.

Giveaway: 1 Winner Will Get the Entire Your Baby Can Read Volume 1 Set including: 1 training DVD, 1 watching DVD for kids, 1 flap book, and 6 slide cards.
