It’s been a long day, because it was a long, long night!

Georgia - how do I look in these?
Lucky MommyKnows and DH had the pleasure of waking up with Georgia in our bed. I don’t have anything against co-sleeping, in fact when my babies were tiny and required middle of the night feeding and care, I preferred it, but once they start rolling and kicking, well “they’re outta there”.

So how’d it happen?

1 a.m. phone rings (picture staggering, barely conscience, worried MommyKnows!)

Caller: Is Clint there?
Me: You have the wrong number.
Caller: I have the wrong number?
Me: YES, you have the wrong number.
Caller: Linda?
Caller: Who am I talking to?
Me: WHO. GIVES. A. FLYING … (it dawns on my foggy brain … oh, I can hang up … I don’t have to swear and argue and explain.)

Now calling a wrong number isn’t that bad, calling it @ 1 a.m. is NOT COOL (didn’t her mother teach her not to make phone calls after 10 pm?), but calling the wrong number @ 1 a.m. and asking stupid questions is VERY UNCOOL and just exasperating.

After an hour or so of sleepless tossing and turning … I dream of revenge. I dream about posting the callers phone # on my blog. She’ll be sorry … hundreds of strangers will be calling her. She’ll think twice before calling me in the middle of the darn night! It’s a good dream.

RING.RING.RING. – It’s 3 a.m. OMG! It’s the same twit! I just hang up, but I am steamed! Now Sam’s awake and yelling “is it morning?” This wakes Georgia’s and she’s crying and eventually this leads to me sharing my bed.

So here’s her #: (780) 231 – 06XX (I wish … I really do!)

Today (Day 17 Thursday) & tomorrow (Day 18 Friday) I am giving away 8 SnapT’s, which are brand NEW, just on the site and very handy-dandy little doodads (they’re like the bib clips at the dentist only WAY cuter)! I have been using my sample for months. Each time thinking “now why didn’t I think of that?” At first, I wasn’t sure if they’d be all that handy … but they are! It saves space in the diaper bag, which is always at a premium. Even better it saves bringing the dirty bib home in the diaper bag and then forgetting about it (yuck). It works great in the car (think dripping cones from DQ). As long as you have a napkins … you have a bib.

snapt bib clips

Four winners will be picked for Day 17 and 4 winners for Day 18 (all names will be drawn on Day 18 (Friday) about 9 p.m.), in addition I’ll draw one additional name for the last item which is a Gypsy Diaper Pouch. We don’t have these on our site. One of our suppliers sent this along with some other items and while I’d love to use it, I have one :) and I am trying to cut back on the amount of “stuff” I collect.

gypsy diaper wallet

A great all in on diaper organizer with pockets for diapers and wipes and a fold-out changing pad! Use one for each child and keep diaper sizes seperate in your diaper bag. It has a convient wrist and stroller strap to carry on its own, no more lugging around a full diaper bag on quick errands.

I love the cute print!

To be eligible to win, just leave a comment AND tell me why we should carry May Madness into June! If the turn out continues to grow … well, I’m having so much fun … I’d like to continue. So bring your friends and pimp this blog!

Thank you to: Lorie, Naomi, Magi, Yan, DaisyMom, mamaknj, Lacey, JenB, kerflop, MonkeyKisses and OverwhelmedwithJoy for the links :) the more links and participants we get … the longer we can continue!

Note: SnapT’s have been added to the MayMadness coupon promo for those of you interested in buying them.

I’m giving away a FREE product every day until the end of May. Read more here: Contest Details

Angella · May 23, 2007 at 9:26 pm

I’ll do a link…I’ve just been so BUSY! If you continue the madness into June, then that means there’s a chance I might win something!

I’ll post a link to you on my sideblig fo sho!

MommyKnows · May 23, 2007 at 9:30 pm

Why thank you Miss Angella, mighty kind of you! I have BIG plans for June … but I have to prove the traffic to some “maybe” participants!

Sarai · May 23, 2007 at 9:31 pm

Cool stuff & love your website!

Jen the Mom · May 23, 2007 at 9:44 pm

I can’t think of a better way to spend summer than being generous and giving away things to smart, beautiful, intelligent mothers. Mothers like me.

Like me dang it!


I’ve got to put a link up because I’m having too much fun finding out about all these new kid products that I’ve never even heard of before. See, there’s reason number two for carrying forward into June.

MommyKnows · May 23, 2007 at 9:48 pm

Sarai: Thank you :)

Jenthemom: Thank you, thank you Jenthemom! It is kind of fun :) giving stuff away!

Laura · May 23, 2007 at 9:59 pm

Well, I didn’t need a swim diaper but these I could use. I guess I could use the diaper organizer since I will be bringing home my second little one soon from VN and she won’t be potty trained LOL

I will add a link to my blog b/c I know others want to know about your goodies…of course that means we need to continue in June : )


Much More Than A Mom · May 23, 2007 at 10:00 pm

I’d love to try those snap T’s!

You should carry it into June because giveaways are where it’s at. Come over to to see what I mean!

Pam · May 23, 2007 at 10:03 pm

I think that you should continue the May madness into June because you keep showcasing cool products I may not know about otherwise. Also then I might have a better chance of winning something.
Plus things don’t really happen when they should here. Like SNOW. The outlaying areas got some snow today I heard (none that stuck I imagine) and Enviro Canada forecasted snow mixed with rain tonight. It’s the end of May. Snow? Okay, that turned into a bit of a rant… If there’s snow in May then why not a May madness in June?

Deanne S. · May 23, 2007 at 10:58 pm

What a cool idea!! I have to agree with “Pam”, you are introducing me to a whole bunch of “must have” products I’ve never heard of, thanks so much for your generosity, into June is such a fantastic idea! I figure I gotta win sooner or later, now it’s starting to look like later…but I can be patient!

Ryan's Mom · May 23, 2007 at 11:28 pm

Please keep up the good work. I am really enjoying reading your blog, it is addictive. Makes me feel normal – I am not the only one who gets calls in the middle of the night for no reason as at all.

I keep forgetting to buy a new alarm clock, so I use my cellphone alarm each evening. Which is usually okay but the other week, my best friend in England decided to send me three texts (which is really nice as I love hearing from her) but due to the time difference these texts came through between 3 and 4am waking my husband each time (as my phone makes a cool noise when a text arrives).

As you can imagine husband not particularly happy, especially when he realized that the texts were not a family emergency but my friend updating me on the latest UK reality tv show. After the 3rd text, I had to quickly send my friend a text to tell her to stop, as my husband threatened to throw the *****ing cellphone out of the window! Oops!

Yan · May 23, 2007 at 11:48 pm

I think you should continues the madness into June because I just love love all the cool products !

Oh, I will definitely get one of those snap T’s, what a great idea :) I didn’t even know you had them.

Richard · May 24, 2007 at 12:17 am

I agree with Yan!!

Ann · May 24, 2007 at 3:46 am

This is such a good idea, giving away cool stuff to great mothers :) Seriously though, I honestly didn’t know that all this stuff existed. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas.

Monya · May 24, 2007 at 5:44 am

I think you should continue into June because I just found out about these contests and I want to win one! :) I’ll blog all about it later today – we have our 4 month dr’s appt (and shots) so I’ll be doing a whole post this afternoon. We’re in cloth diapers, too, so it’s great to find out about your store!

Mary C · May 24, 2007 at 5:47 am

This is so much fun! PLEASE keep doing it-even though I haven’t won anything, I love checking to see who did-it’s like Christmas! And I love reading your blog. Found you through Kerflop.

liz- Monkey Kisses · May 24, 2007 at 6:32 am

Those look cute.. I am in..

leslie · May 24, 2007 at 6:47 am

..these both look great….please keep this up into june

Lorie · May 24, 2007 at 7:27 am

I think you should continue into June because I am enjoying getting to know the products and with an almost 4 month old I love it!!!

Colleen · May 24, 2007 at 8:05 am

Those SnapT’s look really cool. I would love it if you continued the May madness into June. It would be nice to have more chances to win something, but more than that it’s been great to learn about all these neat products.

As a super busy mom, and what mom isn’t super busy, I don’t have a ton of time to shop for my kids. Being able to visit your blog and read about new to me baby gear and have a chuckle is awesome!

Even if you don’t continue the May madness I’m still going to read your blog because it’s just that fun.

Daisymom · May 24, 2007 at 8:18 am

Oh my gosh! Please keep doing this! It’s so much fun! The only down side is that I’m learning about all of these products that I now MUST have.

Anne · May 24, 2007 at 8:33 am

You should keep this going into June because it has made me aware of all the cool things out there that I never knew about! After seeing all the things on your website, I’ve just been going out and buying them all because I didn’t know about them before!! Keep it going!!

Mama K · May 24, 2007 at 8:52 am

I need that bib clip.

Why should you continue? ‘Cause I just found your site and the month is almost over. Oh and it’s so awesome to see CDs given away as prizes. Yay!

Kait · May 24, 2007 at 8:54 am

What a cute little idea those SnapT’s are!

And you should definitely extend May Madness into June because I haven’t won ANYTHING yet and that will give me more chances to win!

Susy-Q · May 24, 2007 at 8:58 am

You should continue into June because this is too much fun! Not only do I enjoy reading your blog, but I get a chance to win something cool. I’ve given up on winning some leather soled shoes, so I think I will order a pair today. Have a nice day! (It’s gorgeous in Montreal today–29 degrees warm!)

empresselle · May 24, 2007 at 9:19 am

i just found this, and i absolutely think you should continue this into june.. its so great to be able to learn about new products and how they actually function (there are so many things that look cool that are actually useless, and vice versa) – and of course, i would love to be able to win something.. :) thanks! (and it is no where close to 29 degrees here in airdrie (calgary)- we have 6 inches of snow. unbelievable.

OMSH · May 24, 2007 at 9:32 am

And here I got my pen and paper to jot down the number.

You don’t have to add me to any free giveaway … I’m just waving and saying HI! HELLO! How ARE things?!

Deborah · May 24, 2007 at 9:35 am

I’ve never seen those SnapT things before. What a neat idea!
And for that reason, I think it would be great to continue this into June. How else would we know these products and gadgets are out there?

Naomi · May 24, 2007 at 9:42 am

Umm, you should continue May Madness into June because it gives us something to look forward to in the morning, after our kids crawl into our beds and wake us too early. (And psychopathic wrong number callers, what’s up with that???)

dee · May 24, 2007 at 10:06 am

Those SnapT’s look great! I could definitely use them!

Montserrat · May 24, 2007 at 10:12 am

What fun little doodads! Why didn’t I think of that? Please continue this into June! Pretty, pretty please?

Corey · May 24, 2007 at 10:13 am

you should carry it on to June because YOU are cool like that! :) it has been wonderful to see all the fun and interesting products. The snapt product is a great and cute Idea. Hope I win….. :)

I’ll do a linky poo to your blog tomorrow. I already have you listed as a “good read” on the side of my blog. :)

Corey · May 24, 2007 at 10:15 am

I also meant to say that I would be sooooooooooooooo STEAMED if I had one wrong number call in the middle of the night….but TWO holy cow! arghhhhhhhhhhh

Kathryn · May 24, 2007 at 10:19 am

Ooh, Ooh, I wanna win!!.. Those SnapTs look great and I have THREE baby showers coming up!! :)

You should continue because look at all the new readers you’re getting (like me!) and how much FUN we’re all having!!!! PLUS, it takes 21 days to “make a habit” and I just found you so I wont’ have 21 days of checking your blog every day until at least a week into June!

Helen · May 24, 2007 at 10:30 am

I just discovered your blog and your site from Yan and I’m excited to check your products out further. I’ll be really looking at your swim diapers.

Oh and I would be royally pissed at a caller that early in the morning too. I would have been tempted to answer the phone the second time and put it in the crib so that person could hear your crying baby scream into their ears. What a jerk!

Amy :) · May 24, 2007 at 11:13 am

Pick me pick me!

You should definitely continue May Madness. Everyone loves winning things, and you’re getting so many new customers too!

Jennifer Bogart · May 24, 2007 at 11:54 am

Who doesn’t love a contest? :)

Holly · May 24, 2007 at 11:56 am

Being a mommy is so wonderful. Being a mommy winning one of your wonderful prizesis even more wonderful.

Heather · May 24, 2007 at 11:58 am

You have such wonderful things that you share. How in the world do you find the time????

Deborah · May 24, 2007 at 12:00 pm

Why carry the contest through June? Why not through July? August? September? We’ll all hang with you. I promise!

Carey · May 24, 2007 at 12:15 pm

Those snapT’s look cool. My niece would love it.

Rosanne Boutin · May 24, 2007 at 12:20 pm

I love this comment section where I can learn about new products on the market and learn from others who have tried them. I really think you should keep on the May Madness into June. Free advertising is great and their is really nothing like showcasing new products. My husband and I are going to be taking our girls 7 months and 3 years old to Las Vegas in August(i know we are crazy) so the bib clips or Gypsy Diaper Pouch would be great to have in the travel gear. Has anyone brought kids there and have any recommendations about entertainment facilities. Oh and I definitely plan on renting a double jogging stroller down there – I figure they must have them at the hotels. Last time I went on a trip (kidless) to Victoria all the major hotels has them:)
Oh and I just purchased the water resistant blanket from the babymarketplace. Has anyone used one lately and love it? It looks really handy to me – I am all about the gadgets!

Nikki · May 24, 2007 at 1:07 pm

I LOVE the gypsy diaper thing. That would come in super handy since in a few weeks I’l have a baby which means two children in diapers…in two different sizes!

I think this should continue into June because I just found out about it a couple days ago and haven’t had much time to participate!!! Not that it’s all about me, but things like this keep me going right now in all my tiredness!

Cathy · May 24, 2007 at 1:09 pm

I think that you should continue into June because you’re introducing moms like me to such cool products! Keep it going! Plus, isn’t it fun? Love the Snap-Ts!

Alison · May 24, 2007 at 1:13 pm

Who knew there were so many cool baby things out there. It’s amazing what you can learn from the internet.

jhlefty · May 24, 2007 at 1:23 pm

What a great idea! The clip is always there in your diaper bag and you just need to find a napkin. I have a very difficult time remembering to bring bibs… Also love the pattern on the gypsy diaper bag!

MonaB · May 24, 2007 at 1:51 pm

I think you should continue the May Madness into June as it really does show off the great products you sell and by you generously giving away such great products, people are sure to notice and ask where we got them. I know I have been amazed with the cool items that I would not even know about until I saw your site! Keep it up and maybe one of these days, I may be lucky to win a prize!

Helen · May 24, 2007 at 1:58 pm

OMG! I just checked out your houseboating post and I’m so going to check out that houseboat company you posted! We just love Lake Kookanusa! My husband is from Cranbrook and spent many years camping out there. Thank you so much!

tashamolly39 · May 24, 2007 at 2:10 pm

This site is awesome and so very down to earth. I found out through Pazam at the babycenter. Although I don’t know Pazam…thanks for the tip on a great site. I have passed the site down to 8 of my friends. You absolutely should carry May into June as I just found out about it. I never even heard of the Snap T’s……

As for the ridiculous phone calls….I have one that will make your jaw drop

ReadY? I got a new cell phone with a new number. I had given it to friends, family, work, etc…which is a normal thing. All was fine for about 6-7 months when all of a sudden I had a girl call and started talking to me not realizing I was the wrong person. She told me that she was “just released” today and wanted to start working agian and if I provide her with some “magic powder”! I told her she had the wrong number and hung up. She kept calling back, not believing me…then guys started calling and requesting for her, and asking for a half ounce etc….I was shocked. This went on periodically for about 3-4 months. Why I let it go on for this long I don’t have an answer for that. I phoned my cell phone provider and was told that there was nothing they could do but change my number for a fee. I didn’t want to change the number as so many people had it and you all know it is a pain to contact everyone. So I call the police and asked what could be done and of course I had to deal with it or change my number. SO from that day forward I answered the phone and when there was a request I kindly answered that “she” had a new phone number……I gave it to them……It was the local police phone number and occasionally I gave them the jail number. It took about 3 days but no more calls….It has been peace for about 2.5 years.

Have a great all!!!!!!!

Elise Vajsabel · May 24, 2007 at 2:11 pm

I’d love to try the snapT’s.
Thanks for the great contest.

Jennifer Walker · May 24, 2007 at 2:20 pm

I haven’t won anything yet and really would love to! Please continue this into June. pretty please?

Mrs. Pear · May 24, 2007 at 2:41 pm

I am really enjoying learning about all these great products! THis is so much fun!

Christine L. · May 24, 2007 at 3:21 pm

That really bites about the caller in the middle of the night. About 10 years ago, I moved and got a new number. It turns out that I had an old fax number, and fax machines would call me at all hours. Very annoying… but no little kids to wake up…. or I, too, would be plotting revenge.

Why to continue it….. well, it’s just too darn fun trying to win things!!!

Helen · May 24, 2007 at 4:11 pm

I realized you want my blogspot link so I am adding it instead of my baby carrier website. Sorry. :~)

Kara · May 24, 2007 at 4:50 pm

I just learned about this site and it looks very interesting. From reading the comments it makes me want to share with friends and learn about new products. By having new people check it out and learn things, I think that would be why you should continue through June.

Julie · May 24, 2007 at 5:10 pm

I agree with Daisymom!

The snapTs look like they would be interesting to try and I love the print on the Gypsy Diaper Pouch. Fun items to give away!

Laura · May 24, 2007 at 5:27 pm

Snap T’s look really interesting… I’ve seen Kipiis Bib clips which are similar in function, but pricey. Snap T’s would be a better choice if they were more economical!

I would love for you to continue the giveaways in June… love seeing all the new products!!

Aimee · May 24, 2007 at 5:40 pm

Jeez, I miss the beginning of May Madness when there was less competition. . . but I’m sure it’s good for business. I mean, I’ve learned about products I didn’t know existed and read rave reviews on them in the competing comments, so that’s a pretty good reason to continue into June.

That said, I would love some Snap-Ts, I’ve got a drooler!

Magi · May 24, 2007 at 6:12 pm

I definitely think you should continue May Madness into June. It’s how I found your site, and I’m sure you’ll find many more new visitors.

Lisa · May 24, 2007 at 6:50 pm

I never saw snap T before. They look ultra cool.
Thanks for the great contest throughout may. I will definitely continue to tell my friends if you continue into June.

Cherylyn · May 24, 2007 at 7:28 pm

I really have no good altrusitic reason for wanting you to continue into June, I would just like to win something, and I would post a link if i had a blog, but I do not, but you have really made my May a lot mroe fun!

Amy · May 24, 2007 at 8:50 pm

Tee hee. I wish you would have posted the twits actual phone number. Oh how we could have tormented her!

Mary-Jo · May 24, 2007 at 9:00 pm

You go girl, right into June!! The odds of winning something will increase, of course I would love for you continue the madness. It would be must madness if you didn’t…o.k I am talking nonsense here…

Kami · May 24, 2007 at 10:08 pm

Cool idea, and your phone call story cracked me up. Some people!


Julie · May 25, 2007 at 8:36 am

Oops, I forgot to tell you why I think you should continue May Madness in to June…I think you’ve introduced many mums/dads to lots of great products they might not have encountered otherwise. I’ve really enjoyed it!

Marcy · May 25, 2007 at 3:14 pm

Awesome stuff, love your site, got the link from Jen the mom.

Janice · May 25, 2007 at 7:40 pm

You should continue into June, because I want to see what you would call it.
June Swoon? June Jubilation?
