Baby Scheduling Service

Sometimes I feel like I am my toddler's personal assistant, coordinating his social calendar and relaying messages for him. My days go something like this:

(phone rings)
Mommy: "Baby Scheduling Service, this is Mommy. How may I help you?"

Voice on Phone: "Hello, this is Grandma."

Mommy: "Hello, Grandma. Can I interest you in our Tuesday Evening Special? We're offering a complimentary spaghetti dinner with your baby visit, complete with a poncho to protect your clothes from flying noodles."

Grandma: "No thanks. I'd like to schedule a Saturday visit with my grandson...and I'd like the Fuss-Free Guarantee, please."

Mommy: "I'm sorry, but we are no longer offering the Fuss-Free Guarantee due to an unexpected increase in tooth production. However, we are promoting our Proof of Fussy Certification this week, which includes a log of naps that confirm that the reason for his fussiness is not your visit."

Grandma: "Okay, that will have to do. I also have a list of requested maneuvers for my stay. Specifically, I would like to order four smiles, two hugs (upon arrival and departure), several steps (you did say he was walking now, didn't you?), and at least three laughs."

Mommy: "All right, I'll pencil you into his calendar for this Saturday, between his baby food throwing and his rough-housing with Daddy. Will there be anything else?"

Grandma: "No, that's all. I'll see him on Saturday."

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.
