It’s so nice to have the Carnival of Family Life back in the islands. We’ve got a lot of great posts from past as well as new contributors! Yeah! So grab yourself a cup of coffee and settle in for some great reading. The Carnival is back in town!
Do you know what you kids really think about your appearance? Well, Mary of Almost Somewhat Positive never has to worry about that. Although, I think I’d rather be kept in the dark! Read her hilarious post in What do you get for the girl who has almost anything . . .
What would you do if you spent good money to see a movie only to have the child behind you constantly talk and kick your chair? DigitalRich had that very thing happen to him. See how he handled the situation in Showdown at the Carmike Cinema Corral.
How do you get your child to sleep alone in his/her own bedroom? Christine of Are We There Yet? is asking the same question. Read about her situation in When Your Child is Afriad to Sleep Alone. BTW, love the new site!

Can you imagine giving birth to an 11 pound baby? Well, Kelly from Pass The Torch must be SuperMom to have gone through a delivery like that! You have to check out the adorable photo of “C” when he was first born in Happy Birthday – Dock Jumper. He’s now celebrating his 8th Birthday!

In order to try and increase member participation through leaving comments, I’ll be giving away either a box of chocolate covered macadamia nut candy or a bag of Kona coffee to the person who visits (and comments on) the most submissions. You have all this week to make your rounds and the winner will be announced at the next carnival edition. Please include that you’re visiting through the Carnival of Family Life to help me keep count. I’ll try it for this week and see how it goes.
And speaking of the next edition, next week we’ll be having a brand new host . . . Kevin from More4Kids!
