Welcome to the 40th edition of the Carnival of Family Life.

Please take a moment to check out the different topics we have this week. I’m sure everyone can find something they can relate to. If you’re new to the carnival, you can get more info on how to participate in the sidebar. New friends are always welcomed!

Family Stories

  • Remember those endless nights when your child refused to sleep? Jordan of MamaBlogga is going through that right now. Read about it in Hayden and the new baby and show your support.
  • Remember those “guess the number of beans” game you used to play at parties? Well, Michelle of Scribbit’s brother has solution to figuring it out. If only I understood what he was talking about. Maybe you will . . . read about it in No, It’s ALL About Winning.
  • Here at An Island Life, Girlie Girl and I spent some quality time together this past weekend. Find out what we did in Cheetah-licious!


Things to Think About

  • I know what Lara of The Open Door is going through. It’s been my personal struggle lately, too. Read about it in All Grown Up. Could someone hand me a tissue, please?
  • Linda of Everyone Needs Therapy says, “People are different when it comes to sharing their day. When you’re in a relationship (and that can be a parent-child relationship) and both of you want to share about your day, or say that one of you does and one of you doesn’t AND maybe doesn’t want to listen, well, that has some consequences.” Read about it in At the end of the day-Work Intimacy.

Tips & Advice

Just for Laughs

Great Ideas

  • What do you do with those birthday cards your kids receive? Erica of LittleMummy has a very creative and artistic way to display them in Birthday Card Mosaic.

Family Medicine

Help Please!

Well, that’s it for this week. Next week we’ll be having a new host, JHSiess of Colloquium. It’s his first time hosting so please show your support by sending in those family-related posts!

Also, don’t forget about our new Carnival Contest. Here’s how it works:

  • For every post you submit, you get one point.
  • For every comment you make on a carnival entry, you get one point. You can leave a comment even if you didn’t submit a post for that week. However, you must be a CFL member. Don’t forget to put that you’re visiting from the Carnival of Family Life to help me keep track.
  • For every post that you link back to the carnival, you’ll get one point.
  • If you host the carnival at your site, you’ll get 5 points. You can host once a month. First come, first served.
  • I will tally up the points at the end of each week.
  • The person with the most total points at the end of the month (last carnival edition of the month) will be named “Outstanding Carnival Member” of the Month and will receive a $15 gift card to Amazon.com and a cool button to place in your sidebar (once I get one made).
  • Any questions? Please feel free to email me.

Until next week, take care and be safe!

    Another great carnival! Pssst…my son made the Play Library robots although I’m sure Kerri’s sons could make the same. ;) If anyone has toy creations to show off, I’d love to feature you at PlayLibrary.com! Email me at hsien@b5media.com.

    ** I’m so sorry! I’ll fix it asap!
