I did the whole routine tonight- giving the kids a bath, pajamas, tucking them in. Nothing out of the ordinary. I had to keep Samuel, who is four years old, focused tonight. He kept getting off track and fooling around. Happens a lot at this age I suppose. As soon as I got them settled and tucked in their covers, he said "Mommy, I really love you so much". He gave me a huge hug and said "I think I want to keep you guys". I laughed so hard! Where does he get these things?

These have got to be one of the greatest inventions ever. At first, being the cheapskate I am, I thought "why can't I just use a rag and some cleaner"? I bought a pack anyway, and I have never turned back. They are so convenient to use. Things I use them for:
* wipe down the toilet and bathroom counter every few days- I can go weeks between a real bathroom cleaning now
*wipe up little food spills in the kitchen when cooking
*wipe up small potty training accidents from my son
*wipe the bottom of the dog crate to get rid of smells and any messes
I have used name brand and store brand of these, and I have found no major differences so far. I do buy the Clorox brand when they are on sale or I have a coupon though.

I love Fage.
I could eat it for breakfast, lunch , and dinner. I usually just top it with some honey. My problem is that Fage costs $5.69 for about 16 oz at my local Kroger. That's a lot of dough for something I consume in 2 or 3 days.
In order to make your own Fage, you will need: regular plain yogurt, paper towels, and a strainer (or colander or anything with lot of holes in it). I personally use my steamer. I put my steamer over a pot to catch the excess liquid. Then I line my steamer with about 3 paper towels and dump the yogurt on top. Stick your empty yogurt container and your strainer in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Then you can scoop your yogurt back into the container- done!
For 32 oz of plain yogurt I paid $2.19 and after I strained it, about 16 oz remained. Quite a savings and I couldn't even taste the difference.
