I had a chance to receive a sample of Piggy Paint along with Piggy Paint remover. I must say I wish I had this product back when my daughter was a baby, as I had always wanted to paint her nails but worried about her eating the nail polish and then worried about how I was going to clean the nail polish off of her, all those nail polish removers are not exactly something you want to use on your baby girl.

So you are ready to take the leap and become a work at home parent but uncertain how to get started, what you can do and if direct sales is an option. I am here to help show you the things I thought about before jumping into the work at home mom position.
How Much Money Do I Need To Make
This would be the first question to ask yourself. Sit down and figure out a budget, something like the budget sheet I use in Microsoft Excel. Figure out how much your bills are a month, figure out how much you need to have weekly to survive. This will be frustrating at first, as it was for me. My bills were and still are way more than any income I have coming in, but if you are able to really try to budget eventually you will get to a point where you can afford the bills without getting disconnect notices.
I have a new application on my BlackBerry Tour that I just had to share with you all. As a person who is addicted to texting but refuses to text while driving I knew there had to be a way to hear your texts, I mean come on we are in the year 2009 .. right?!
So I went to Blackberry App World and found an application called Drivesafe.ly . It literally reads your text messages out loud, you can even have it set up to read your emails as well as auto respond to texts and emails with a customized message. Mine simply says “Sorry I am driving, I got your text but will respond when I am parked”. Most of my friends understand that I don’t text while I am driving even if they still do it.
I can’t imagine trying to safely drive down the road, texting on my cell while driving on the road straight?! I mean this is a girl who can’t chew gum and walk .. okay reality is I am super bad at doing two things at once if one requires a lot of concentration and fast reactions. Driving requires focus and the ability to instantly respond to a fast brake light being put on.
So my new fave app is DriveSafe.ly and I hope you will check it out and see if you can get it on your phone. Now hopefully my friends who text me don’t have any naughty words to say or else my three year old may learn a new word he doesnt’ really need to learn. OH and if you don’t want everyone hearing your texts and/or emails, like the girl at the bank drive through lane, be sure to shut it off and set it up so it doesn’t automatically go ON when you turn your cell phone on 😉

As most of you know, well those who have been a long time reader, my son AJ is quite the handful. No matter what you want this child to do he will do the opposite and even if you ask him to do something he “wants” to do his first response is always NO .. almost guaranteed. Well the other day I was having some fun with AJ and this is what he came up with …. Enjoy our silly Mother/Son moment …
Are you ready to get inside of the mind of a younger, lost, not so positive Brandy? Well I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the poems I wrote as a young child, so I have my e-book ready and I would love you to check it out.
