Rocktober Baby! (Marketplace) – Naming November

Published by on

Whoa, that last post was a bit of a dud!

The winner of the random draw, is posted @ the post as usual. BUT, I’d like to reward those of you who did your homework and either sent me a picture or post one on your site – you all get a pair of FREE BabyLegs! Email me (kim @ mommyknows dot com) and let me know if you want a boy pair or a girl pair … sorry no more choice than that!

You are:


Rocktober Baby! (Marketplace) is going to be a fun month! I am continuing the give-aways with yet another twist –> this month instead of a prize-per-day, there will be a prize-per-post. Some days all you’ll have to do is comment, other days you’ll have to jump through hoops!

Can you believe Rocktober Baby! (Marketplace) is nearly over? Help me name November and give me any contest ideas!


EVERY post in October Rocktober I’m giving away a free prize (maybe more, but at least one). Just like in the past the winners will be randomly drawn and posted here on the site.

The winner(s) will be able to choose one of any of the prizes listed on the flickr set: Rocktober Baby! (Marketplace). Once an item is chosen, it will be removed from flickr and will no longer be available (unless I have two … which I do for some).

All prizes are provided by: in conjuction with

Narly November-narly is such a great word. As for contests, not sure…I’ll have to think about it.

I wish I had gotten my husband to dig up those photos in the closet from hell now!!! I should have headed your advice Mommyknows!

I am not very good at thinking of these things, but all I can think of is “Remember November” because of Remembrance day.

glittersmama · October 29, 2007 at 7:18 pm

New in November

Amanda · October 29, 2007 at 7:20 pm

November makes me remember we always called it “Naughty November” as kids – it was our last chance to be naughty before we had to be good in December for Santa!!

jw4mkc · October 29, 2007 at 8:01 pm

Well, I was trying to think of a Thanksgiving inspired name, but just remembered, thanks to that yall’s Thanksgiving has come and gone – so..hmmmmm

What about..Sweet November (like the movie) or hmm..well, I am out of ideas.

Lisa · October 29, 2007 at 8:26 pm

November Notions

I knew I should have dug a little deeper for that picture. I went and looked at the picture box but didn’t go any farther than looking to see what was on top.

contest ideas are hard.

Naughty or Nice Giveaway
How Many Sleeps till Christmas
November Frenzy
Beat The Crowds

For contest ideas:
I think a scavenger hunt would be awesome. You could post a new clue every week with a list of a couple items for us to find. We email the answers to you and you post who’s got the right answers…then draw at the end of the month of all eligible entries.

Thanks for the Baby Legs Kim! My daughter had great fun looking through my school book memorabilia when I dug that picture out. She thought it was great looking through my old artwork.

Heather · October 30, 2007 at 6:14 pm

My idea is that you could call November “November Nouveau” and then highlight some of the new products you’ll be featuring at Baby Marketplace on your blog (you could also highlight some of the really interesting products that you already carry…like the TummyTub).

Andrea · October 30, 2007 at 8:27 pm

Oh, I’m so bad at thinking of names, but I’ll try a few anyways…

November Fest, Fallin’ For November, November Novelties…

Mefeng · October 31, 2007 at 12:02 am

Michelle · October 31, 2007 at 8:12 am

Novel November
Can either be as in new or could discuss best books we have read – kids or otherwise.
Other ideas – favorite baby “gadget”, cutest pic of our kids, best pumpkin pic

Natalie · October 31, 2007 at 11:58 am

I 3rd (or 4th) Remember November. Contests could be stories from the past, some funny, others touching, etc.

alyson · October 31, 2007 at 10:51 pm

A “November to Remember – Baby!” Thats the best I can do. Good luck one and All.

Christina E · November 1, 2007 at 9:48 am

Nonstop Shopping November!

alyson · November 1, 2007 at 12:17 pm

Pam · November 1, 2007 at 1:17 pm

November Gift-away (like giveaway). I’m at a loss of suggestions.

Deanne S. · November 1, 2007 at 1:32 pm

Nostalgic November…maybe people could send in short stories about their most memorable Christmas or other occasion from childhood. Pictures would be better (I got the idea from seeing your grade 1 pic.) It’s so nice to look back and share these memories and pics with our kids! Maybe the winner could get one of the toys from your website that are more “back to the basics” types like wooden puzzles or those Peppa dolls. A nice relaxing trip down memory lane this month before everyone’s life turns crazy in December!

Tasha · November 2, 2007 at 11:02 am

Novermberance? Now we could send in pictures of our kids dressed up for Halloween?

blondie · November 2, 2007 at 7:55 pm

Hey Mom,
k you always say I’m creative but not at this type of stuff. But I like “Novembaby” … and “Remember November”. But I was gonna say you need to write more about the kids cause i like to read what troubles there causing now that I’m away…

Jenna · November 3, 2007 at 12:55 pm
