*Yes, Hyland's tablets were recalled in October. No, they are not yet available. KFuj was nice enough to give us a leftover bottle of Kyle's, since he's fine with other methods of pain relief. I've been saving this last allotment for the dreaded molars when even Tylenol wasn't helping poor Tony last night. Since the tablets have kicked in while I was writing this post, he's up and playing happily instead of clinging to me.

It should be noted that the postcard that I get to return indicating our interest is also postage paid. However I can fax, email, or submit our information online. Woo hoo!!! Maybe I'll do all four forms to ensure they know that we are interested...

I love that we took these just a few weeks before they started walking on their own, back when they stayed in relatively the same spot you put them. This also proved that Striker and I are not as strong as we thought...we were supposed to be tossing Alex into the air while lying on our backs...yeah...notice we're just holding him...though we both argue that it was too difficult to toss him and catch him without being able to move. His big head makes him a little top heavy and we didn't want to drop him.

There are a few deal blogs that I follow...you can subscribe to their RSS feeds, or add them to your Google Reader, or "Like" them on Facebook...if you're just getting started, or not a mom, I'd start with just the first 2-3:
Southern Cali Saver
A Coupon Chick
Money Saving Mom
Cheap Mama Chick
I watched and waited the deal sites to get a year's subscription to the Sunday LA Times (just for all of the ads and coupons) for $10. Wait for it...it'll likely come around again. In the meantime, just print your coupons.
Printable Coupon Sites:
coupons.target.com (can be stacked with manufacturers!)
I'd also recommend visiting the websites or Facebook pages for your favorite/expensive items to see if you can find any coupons before making your purchase.
You can be a dork like me and create a coupon binder which I have sheet protectors for each store or category of coupons...organization is key to help you stack them and maximize your savings.
Lastly, Groupon is my friend...check it out, sign up, and wait for deals on places or activities you want to try.

Other highlights/things to note:
-Lil Dahl and I liked the .38 Special (we called it the sissy gun).
-Shades also brought two .40 Smith & Wessons which we weren't fans of, but the boys liked them. I did shoot pretty well with them though.
-There was an IDIOT shooting a 357 Magnum that scared the crap out of the 3 newbies and of course he was right next to us.
It was fun and I'd totally do it again. I might even load my own bullets next time.
Thanks Shades/Shrek and Lil Dahl!

The boys enjoyed watching the water, but were too chicken to get wet, though I'm sure that will change soon enough. Instead they explored the shade by Victoria's Secret...or maybe they were looking for supermodels? It should be noted that Alex is moving quick now...I can't wait until Tony starts moving just as quickly in the opposite direction and my real fun begins.
Alex has decided this week that he likes bananas, blueberries, peas and carrots after all. Tony has decided that he pretty much just likes carbs and cheese. It's like they switched eating habits. Though Tony still refuses to eat anything he can't feed himself. Guess they're just trying to keep me on my toes.

I do not want to begin estimating the number of calories consumed. I will be attending Kiss My Abs at 5:30 AM as retribution.
