Thoughts and Prayers Requested

I came across this blog a few days ago and it has broke my heart. The blog is written by a mother (Kellie Staats) of a beautiful little girl named Maddie. Maddie turned 4 months old on Valentines Day and a few days later she stopped breathing and passed away while at daycare. She writes about how she is feeling on this blog. I will warn you it is very sad and if you can say you can read it without crying I won't believe you. I'm posting this to help spread the word so this family can get as many prayers as possible to get through this terrible time. I also ask that you say a prayer for the babysitter. I myself have a home daycare and it is my biggest fear in life that something terrible like this could happen. I can not imagine what she or the parents are going through right now.

Also there are some people on facebook who are trying to raise money for the Staat Family. This lady here is selling custom made Initial shirts where $18 of each shirt goes to the family. Kellie said they will be using any money they receive as a savings account so when they have more children she can be a stay at a home mom.

How I just bought a box of diapers for $0.39!!

Yep you read that right. I just bought a $35 box of diapers for 39 cents! Here's how!

1) Find the 20% off Amazon Diapers codes and a $10 off Amazon Mom code from Parents/Parenting/Parenting Early Years or Baby Talk magazines. These are Green cards about the size of a postcard.

2) You'll want 2 of the 20% codes: one that starts with YT and one with YJ

3) Now go to If you are not an Amazon Mom member - sign up! This will get you 30% off your purchase PLUS FREE 2-day Shipping!

4) Now pick a package of diapers (I chose this box of Pampers). Click on SUBSCRIBE NOW on the right of the page.

5)You will need to log in or create an Amazon account at this point. (It's free to sign up!)

6) Now where it asks for promotional claim codes enter them here! Enter up to 3 codes (the $10, YJ 20% and YT 20%)

7) Your summary should now look similar to this (mine is based on the Pampers 144 ct for 34.52):

Items: $34.52
S&H: $0.00
Promotion Applied: - $6.90
Promotion Applied: - $6.90
Promotion Applied: - $10.00
Subscription Discount: - $10.36

Total before taxes: $0.36
Taxes: $0.03

And there you go! Diapers for only $0.39 - that is $.003 per diaper!
