So what have you got planned for the long weekend? I am going to VEG – I may stay in my PJ’s for several days. The forcast is for rain! On the home front, the kidlets are going to Grandma’s (well the youngest three) – FREEDOM! So while the kids are wreaking havoc down on the Ranch. I am going to update the site, sleep, read, sleep, read blogs I like (like this one and this one and this one), sleep, eat out, see a movie, sleep – you get the idea right? I’m doing a happy dance … happy, happy, happy! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the kidlets, but this ROCKS. My mom ROCKS (I may need to be reminded of this in future).

As soon as I found out the kids were leaving for FOUR days, I went instantly into lazy mode, cooking supper was so out of the question. I felt so free and irresponsible, I had Mr. MommyKnows bring home fastfood. GASP! We don’t do fast food, so big treat for the kids!

My burger wasn’t right, I could see the lettuce I requested not be on there hanging out the sides. So I opened it up and I have just one thing to say, “WHERE’S THE BEEF?”.

Here’s the burger I bought.

Where's the fricken beef?

Here’s the burger I thought I was getting.

Doesn’t the beef patty look a little bigger in this picture?

Hmmm … I think I was gypped.

Georgia on the other hand was thrilled with the quality of the food!

mmmm ... fries

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

Mary-Jo · May 17, 2007 at 11:01 pm

If I was to win a gift card, I would buy shoes for my 10 month old girl cuz she desperately needs them. I would give the other gift card to my friend Katie who told me about this website. She’s an awesome Mom and I’m sure she could find something great to buy here at the baby market place…afterall it’s full of great products!

karaninla · May 17, 2007 at 11:41 pm

With the gift card i would buy Babylegs i think my baby (Matthew, 3 months) gonna look so cute!!!!!!! and a pair of Bical Grippers those looks really cool!!!!!!!!! and i would give the gift crd to my friend Anessa She has 2 babies and i think she will enjoy buying things for the babies!!!!!!!

Richard · May 18, 2007 at 12:41 am

I could sure use the gift card to help get something for my twin daughters’ first brithday coming up!!

glittersmama · May 18, 2007 at 1:34 am

I’m back again. I’m hoping that persistance pays off. I would probably use the certificate for some cute shoes, although I hope you don’t hold me to that if I win. I have been known to change my mind! I would give the other certificate to my baby sister because she’s the best, and she deserves something cool like that.

Desi · May 18, 2007 at 5:02 am

I would probably buy a couple more cloth diapers or something along those lines… although there is so much to choose from, who knows??? My sister is preggo and is due in October so I would give her the other card. It’s her first baby so she needs lots of gear :-)

Mary C · May 18, 2007 at 6:02 am

I would use the card to buy some babylegs or maybe try out a cloth diapering system. I’d give the gift card to my friend April who has a 4 day old baby!

Kait · May 18, 2007 at 6:15 am

If I won, I would put my gift card towards some Bumkins AIO diapers (I’m trying out cloth this time around!) and I would give the other card to my best friend who is due June 22nd!

nikkapotamus · May 18, 2007 at 6:21 am

ooh! gift cards!
SIgn me up! I could totally use a cutie patootie swim suit with that built in diaper. Ahh, what a treat!

as for the burgers…what a disappointment. I usually only get salads now, but only at a few select locations. Dried chicken chunks in a bed of iceburg lettuce doesn’t exactly thrill me any more.

Jamie · May 18, 2007 at 6:22 am

My daughter’s 5th birthday is coming up in June and she’d love the butterfly tea set!

I’d give the gift card to a friend who is expecting (wait a minute, I have TWO prego friends…so I’d have to toss a coin!) ;)

Susy-Q · May 18, 2007 at 6:26 am

If I won a gift card, I would get my son a nice pair of soft leather sandals…like the ones that you gave yesterday! I had a burger last night too, but since I am vegetarian, I had the meatless kind. I LOVE BBQ season!

Lucy · May 18, 2007 at 7:12 am

I would probably buy some cloth diapers! or maybe a baby carrier (sling or wrap)!

Deanne S. · May 18, 2007 at 8:42 am

I would have a hard time picking between babylegs and shoes….

I would give the second card to my sister who is expecting her 1st baby in July. She is getting all our hand-me-downs, so new stuff would be great!

AmyP · May 18, 2007 at 8:43 am

I’d buy a cute Zutano outfit — can’t figure out how to link it here — for my baby niece. I’d give the other card to my sister who is 7 mos. pregnant with the baby niece!
Pick me, pick me! :)

Angella · May 18, 2007 at 8:46 am

That burger is NASTY! Sick. :)

I’d get that dress you had Georgia in in your last post…and I’d give the other one to my friend Karen ( because her daughter Sarah likes pretty clothes (and needs new ones). And because Emily gets all of Sarah’s hand-me-downs :)

Carol · May 18, 2007 at 9:18 am

I would buy a cute pair of See Kai Run shoes for my granddaughter and give the other GC to my granddaughter to pick out anything she wanted.

Laurie · May 18, 2007 at 9:18 am

If I were to win I would buy an Aristocrats wool diaper cover for my baby to be born in September. I would give the second card to my friend Susan who is about 12 weeks pregnant and on home rest because of a cyst on her ovary.

Daisymom · May 18, 2007 at 10:02 am

I think I would get the infantino baby beach band, or maybe baby legs… I’m not really sure which. I would give the extra card to my sister-in-law who has two wonderful little boys and spoils my little girl all the time.

kerflop · May 18, 2007 at 10:05 am

Oh the loot I could buy.

Also, Jr Burgers have the teensiest meat ever. False advertising!

Naomi · May 18, 2007 at 10:14 am

I would probably get the Icky Baby robot diaper cover set for my soon-to-be son. He’s kind of getting the shaft in the baby clothes department, mommy is still way more into buying for his 3 year old sister…

The other card I would send to my sister in law who is also expecting a boy, but hers is due any day now.

Katie · May 18, 2007 at 10:40 am

If I win I’d buy a pair of Bical Grippers for my nearly two year old. I’d give the other card to my friend Mary Jo so she could buy some shoes for her poor little baby girl. Would you believe she’s still wearing her Robeez booties? LOL.

Jennifer Walker · May 18, 2007 at 10:41 am

I would probably buy a shopping cart cover for my cousins shower gift and give the other card to my other cousin who’s expecting her 2nd baby.

sneekerchik · May 18, 2007 at 10:48 am

Gift cards are always awesome, I would totally use mine towards another pair of baby legs, my toddler loves the ones she has and so do I. My girlfriend had a babygirl in Feb. and I would give the other gift card to her so she can purchase a remarable product from you as well.

Corey · May 18, 2007 at 11:14 am

I would buy either some bath toys……shoes….or mama cloth! :)

Pam · May 18, 2007 at 11:28 am

If I had that gift card I would buy cloth diaper stuff, like the Aristocrats wool cover,, or some Bumkins, or even the Tiny Tots diapers, because those are a good price (and a good fitted diaper). If not I’d get a shopping cart cover,, or some Babylegs (I really want some of thsoe),, or put the money towards a decent cloth diaper bag (see my rant on Mothers Day….). Okay, there’s too much for me to just decide from, but if I had a gift card then I could buy way too much stuff (is there such thing as too much?) and justify it to my husband saying I had a gift card. Oh, and I would give the second gift card to my sister in law because I would love for her to try out some new cloth diapers from what she uses (flat ones. I think my brother in law would like to try some AIOs or pockets though!).

Christine L. · May 18, 2007 at 11:32 am

Too many things to choose from if I had the giftcard…… I may get some shoes, maybe a diaper, maybe some clothes, or maybe a doll or two, maybe some wooden toys…. can’t decide!!! Let’s just say, if money was no object, I would probably own most of what you sell!!! ;)
And who I would give the other one to…. my sister, of course!! And I know she’s do the same for me. :)

I know what you mean about the burgers. If you got it from the Wendy’s that shall remain nameless, but that is a little north of you…. I stopped eating there about a year ago. Their food disappointed me. Blech.

Deborah · May 18, 2007 at 11:44 am

Hmmm, where do I start. I think I would buy some of these and maybe even try some of these as my regular cloth diapers are getting kinda worn (old homemade ones!).

As for the second gift certificate, I would give it to my best friend Alicia, as she has 3 young kids like me and has never bought anything off before.

Anne · May 18, 2007 at 11:51 am

If I were to win a gift card, I would buy my neice and nephew something for the summer. I haven’t been able to spend as much time with them as I would like, so I would like to get them a little something that they can use during the summer.

Melanie · May 18, 2007 at 12:16 pm

Gift Card 1
I am in my first year of teaching (“mother” of 15). I would love to get my students one of those awesome Crocodile Creek floor puzzles.

Gift Card 2
I would give to my Aunt. I know she would love the Babylegs, or the wrap sunglasses, or any Jack and Lily shoes, or a Peppa doll, or, or… the list could go on :)

Jen the Mom · May 18, 2007 at 12:22 pm

If I had a gift card I would do something really original and buy Baby Legs. Okay, so it’s not so original but since I saw them on your blog, I’m addicted to them. I have to have a pair for David.

Montserrat · May 18, 2007 at 2:27 pm

I’d buy clothes for my little guy. Having 6 older sisters I don’t think hand me downs are appropriate! I love the Wild Mango and Blu lines of clothing. I’d give the other card to my sister who had 2 adorable kiddos.

Elise Vajsabel · May 18, 2007 at 2:41 pm

Gift cards would be great! I could get something for my two daughters or something for the new baby that’s on the way.

MonaB · May 18, 2007 at 2:45 pm

I’d would use the gift card towards a purchase of the infantino shopping cart cover, clean shopper and babylegs. I love the products on the babymarketplace site and plan to purchase when these items are back in stock. With the second gift card, I would give it to my girlfriend as she is a single mom and just had a little one this March and really hasn’t been able to treat herself to anything. I think she would appreciate it very much.

Christine · May 18, 2007 at 3:23 pm

Oohh.. what would I get? I think an Imse Vimse wool wrap…

Cathy · May 18, 2007 at 4:28 pm

I’d definitely get my baby another pair of Babylegs. Love them! Great for this time of year when it’s cold in the morning and hot in the afternoon! And I’d also probably get a toy for my little squirt. I’d give a second card to my sister-in-law, who also has an adorable 1 year old. I know that she would appreciate it!

Cherylyn · May 18, 2007 at 4:30 pm

IF I won I would buy bical watergrippers for my sons this summer. OR maybe some Alex toys for the tub, I just can’t decide. I do know that I’d give my sister the other gift certificate for her girls and I am certain they would be getting some blu outfits.

Becky Ketarkus · May 18, 2007 at 5:34 pm

My best friend and I both adopted babies in the last year! I got my handsome son (our third son) and she has a beautiful new daughter. After two older brothers, some of our gear is worn out. I’d like some new swim wear for my little guy, the community pool opens Memorial Day weekend. Having three boys, I’m totally in pink withdrawl. I would love to give the gift card to my friend so she can by something pink and frilly (and I can live vicariously).

Shirlene · May 18, 2007 at 6:17 pm

If I got a 25 dollar gift card- I would buy my little 6 month old some cute short outfits. We are tight on funds so we shop at garage sales so it would be nice to be able to get him some new cloths

Andréane · May 18, 2007 at 6:30 pm

What I would buy with the 25$… well it is easy to spend more than 25 $ on baby clothing!!! I would buy summer cloth for my 2 yr old boy and for my daughter which is comming… in few hours!!!

The other certificate….hummm to my best friend who just starting using cloth diaper… she will need some accessories, covers…

jenphull · May 18, 2007 at 7:11 pm

I would love the $25 gift card. Why??? Baby needs a new pair of shoes, of course! I’m a stay at home mom and my awesome husband just graduated law school and is searching for a job. (he doesn’t want to be a lawyer, but he wants his kids to have his mom home!!! Bless his heart, he’s really a musician!) We are completely broke! I love the bical grippers because we spend tons of time at the park and it would be great to play in the sand. SAM I hope you feel my vibe when you pick a winner!!!

jenphull · May 18, 2007 at 7:13 pm

Oh and the second card would go to mom best friend…mom of three! Another stay at home mom…she could use the help!

Zelatrice · May 18, 2007 at 8:20 pm

With my certificate, I would like to buy washable diaper clothes or maybe shoes for my lovely little child. The other certificate would probably be to my friend Mel who has the happiest baby I’ve ever seen.

artsweet · May 18, 2007 at 9:11 pm

Oooh. I am torn between stocking up on cloth diapers (practical) and buying the adorable stripey zutano footie. I would pass the gift certificate on to a friend who is going through a divorce right now and is short of cash but who would love to be able to buy something cute for her little girl.

Janice · May 18, 2007 at 9:20 pm

I think I would get this dump truck with my card, but I like some of the plush, too. Really, he needs a pair of shoes, though.

And I would give the other card to our friends with a baby a few months older than ours. They have passed us a ton a clothes.

Lacey · May 18, 2007 at 9:21 pm

I think I would buy some shoes, probably some See Kai Run or Shoo Shoos. I have also been interested in trying Cloth Dipes. What to do?

I would probably let my niece pick out something for her 3rd birthday coming up with the other $25 or give it to my friend who just had a baby and is getting ready to start summer evangelism traveling.

Amy · May 18, 2007 at 9:52 pm

I would probably purchase the shopping cart cover for myself and pass the other gift card to my sister to spend on her little one :)

Extra long weekend here, today was a pro-d day for the son and a day off for me too! Plan on hanging out and hopefully catching Shrek 3.

laura · May 18, 2007 at 9:53 pm

Though I adore SKRs, if I won, I think that I’d put a giftcard towards a pair of the Bicals for my daughter. I’ve never seen them before, and I’m intrigued!

I am addicted to buying Babylegs, but as we’re moving to a very hot and humid place I have to curb that particular obsession :)

dee · May 18, 2007 at 10:26 pm

I can’t handle the pressure. I have no idea what I would buy! I do know that I would give the second card to my sister because she just had a new baby 3 weeks ago and could really use some new things for him.

Tristin · May 19, 2007 at 2:41 am

HHHHHMMMMM I would buy one of those seats that help your baby sit up better. i would love to buy one but won’t spend close to 40bucks on one

Justin · May 19, 2007 at 8:21 am

Would spend it all in an instant and then some….

Much More Than A Mom · May 19, 2007 at 1:18 pm

I would buy this: and I’d give the second GC to my friend who’s also pregnant and due 3 weeks after me!

Mrs. Pear · May 19, 2007 at 4:32 pm

I would love to win a card for us so that I could get some fun spring stuff for our sweet daughter who will be 2 in two weeks!

I would give the second card to Jasmine-of-the-kissable-cheeks’ mom so that she can get Jasmine cute stuff that normally would not be in their budget!

Joi · May 19, 2007 at 5:15 pm

I would most likely put it towards some bicall grippers, but I would definately look at everything on the site before putting it to good use.

Heather · May 19, 2007 at 7:31 pm

I would buy the grocery cart cover. I think the majority of our sickness came from the grocery store. I would give the other card to my friend down the street. We walk together and she is expecting her third now. I would love to bless her with a gift card to get her something new for her new little one.

Sarah · May 19, 2007 at 7:39 pm

I think I would buy some crawling knee pads for my youngest Chloe. She’ll be crawling any minute now and I wish I had had some for my older daughter Emma. I’ll give the other one to my sister, she’s due to have her second baby end of June.

Lorie · May 19, 2007 at 8:44 pm

I think that I would buy a first pair of shoes for my 3 month old. The second card I would give to Kendra a friend from church who is getting ready to have a baby at the end of this month. They are having a really hard time financially and to be able to buy something “extra” would be nice for her.

Linda · May 19, 2007 at 8:56 pm

With the gift card I would buy the playdress that you had on your daughter a while back. Maybe in pink…. » May Madness - Day’s 14 & 15 - FREE Jack and Lily Baby Shoes! - Great Parenting Tips from a Mom of 4 and the owner of · May 20, 2007 at 10:28 pm

[…] I am going to do another double give-away (2 days in one). My kids will be arriving home tomorrow night after a 4 day hiatus and the chances of me drawing the winner and then doing a new post the night they arrive home are slim-to-none. […]
