I have have plenty of Sippy cup dilemmas so be sure to enter this giveaway for a great product!!

About our Sponsor:

Kid Basix provides stainless steel bottles, sippy cups, and sports bottles. With the cups being made out of stainless steel you do not have to worry about BPA ūüôā The SafeSippy 2 cup comes with a straw and three different inserts to adjust to your child’s needs; a plug to put in if you are traveling, a sippy valve if they are still used to turning the cup up to drink, and a straw and drink through adapter.

Great news: While this giveaway is going on through October 8th you can save 20% off your entire order with the code: babycostcutters.

Baby Costcutters was given three cups to review in exchange for this giveaway. Here is what she had to say:

“My kids love these cups. When they came all three of them wanted to use them right away….even the 2-year-old. His was the SafeSippy 2 cup. The three different valves you can use in this cup will come in very handy as he moved through the sippy cup stages. My older two boys each received a Safe Sporter cup. They are using them to bring to school for snack time and are enjoying using them. We have not had any problems with leaks at all. With the cups being made out of stainless steel they are very durable cups and seem like they will last a long time!”

Open US only, must be 18+ years old to enter. Ends Oct 8th at 11:59pm est. Good Luck!

Guest Post- Finding out you have Cancer

Guest Post written by Heather Von St. James

Finding out that you have cancer is a devastating experience. ¬†When you first hear the words that you have this deadly condition, fear grips you to the core. ¬†In my own case, the news came at a time when I should have been enjoying all that life has to give. My baby arrived just 3 ¬Ĺ months earlier, and now I had to face a fight against a very serious form of cancer known as malignant pleural mesothelioma. ¬†Asbestos exposure is the primary cause of mesothelioma.

Remembering 9/11

I hold in my hands …

The dust.

The dust and wreckage of the towers.

Even though I wasn’t there,

I can still feel it.

It has damaged my hands with dirt.

It has damaged my heart with sorrow.

It has damaged my body with fear,

and it has damaged my life with war.

I hold in my hands..


Hope for the future.

Hope for peace.

Hope for my country’s freedom.

And hope for America to win this war on terrorism.

Written by then 6th grader, Aaron Walsh in October 2001.

What’s for dinner?!

The age-old question, “What’s for Dinner?” is answered with either a quick response of what we are having or a delayed answer while I think about what I can cook quickly or go grab from a local takeout restaurant! Tonight I planned ahead and took out a delicious roast beef! I love making roast beef in the crock pot, add some water, chopped onion, salt and pepper and it is good to go for hours! My go to side is green beans and carrots and some type of potato! My kids and husband would love for me to make mashed potatoes with every roast but man do I hate peeling potatoes!! Well make that I DID hate peeling potatoes before I got the Sonic Peeler! This gadget is amazing! It peels tough skinned potatoes and even delicate things like¬†Parmesan¬†cheese! It comes with 3 blades for various items: the Heavy-duty, Light-duty and Julienne blades!

And using the special offer below you can get one for the special price of  $14.95 +$6.95 P&H

and get a second one FREE!!! (just pay the P&H fee of $6.95)

Allow 2-6 weeks for delivery, so it will be here in plenty of time for all the upcoming family holiday dinners!!!
