Housekeeping! and a little bit of teasing!

No, this is not an announcement that I have cleaned the house. Sorry Rich. And you probably aren't getting lucky tonight either. Really sorry!

It is however a quick post with some updates for MNT and my wonderful readers!

1. We are implementing a new behavior program with Noah and I'm going to be blogging about it on a new site I'm setting up. Stay tuned for more information! This a big deal for our family and I'm very excited to be working with Debra Sale Wendler the Respect Effect Mom. I met her on Twitter as @adhdparenting. So far I'm very impressed with the program even though it is a lot of work and at times it scares the hell out of me because it's making ME change a lot about myself and how I parent. So seriously, stay tuned!

2. I'm going to be featured in Blog Nosh Magazine this Thursday! More information and links to that later this week!

3. I'm in a book! I know!!!! Squeee! It's coming out in November. More information about that soon too!

And now, some great stuff for you!

4. Remember my posts about being chosen as a Purex Insider? See those buttons on my left sidebar? Well, as a founding member of the Purex Insider Program they have given me the chance to invite two of my blogging friends to be a part of the program too! Cool huh? As a Purex Insider you will be among the first to try and review brand new products from Purex, and be a part of special promotions and giveaways.

Now, don't get too excited. Because in all honesty, other than a coupon for a free package of their new 3 in 1, and some "opportunities"' to promote their product, it hasn't really involved much. But, I am a fan of their product because it is so freaking easy to use. And who knows, they may figure out ways to "reward" us better for helping promote their product in the future.

So, if you are interested in being a Purex Insider please leave your email address in the comments below or email me at mommyneedstherapy at and tell me why you are interested.

5. I'm going to have two more giveaways up on MNT later this week.

One for the new Zhu Zhu Pets toy. Zhu Zhu Pets are fun, interactive hamsters that talk, move and even navigate their way around their own habitats. And the best thing about these pets? No mess and no fuss…just hours of interactive play! I'll be giving away one hamster and one slide with ramp.

And one for 250 Custom Greeting Cards from for TWO of my readers. I've been thrilled with the business cards and stickers I've received from them recently! I'm very excited about this giveaway!

Make sure you check back later this week so you can enter!

  1. I am SO glad that I am following your blog... I was looking through the list of recent entries from blogs I follow and felt this NEED to click onto yours, read the entry and visited the blog about ADHD Parenting, and OMG THATS MY KID! My son was admitted to a Crisis Stabilization Unit last month and they said he has Anxiety and Depression, which I've been told before,and they put him on Prozac, but I've felt for a few months that there was more to it, he now sees a Psychiatric nurse practitioner who agrees with me that he may have a Mood Disorder (Bipolar runs rampant in my family) and put him on Abilify instead of the Prozac, and suggested the possibility of ADHD (Which ALSO runs in the family).

    After reading a few entries on that blog, I think she may be right!

    Thank you SO much for posting that link! You may have just saved my sanity!
