What’s the saying…When God closes a door, he opens a window?

Yes…that’s it.  If I had a nickel (maybe even a penny) for every time someone’s muttered that phrase to me, I’d be sitting on an exotic  beach somewhere with a cabana boy rubbing my feet!  It’s not that I don’t like the saying, but I do take a bit of an issue with the whole “he opens a window” concept.  I’m not sure he’s the one doing the opening.  Sometimes it’s our job to hunker down and make things happen in the face of disappointment.

So where am I going with this?

Well, I’m sorry to say that my gig with WNWO Moms On The Go isn’t going to work out.  It’s a long story as to why, and the details aren’t worth spewing, but I would still encourage everyone to tune in on Wednesday mornings to watch Allie, Lisa and Molly and all of their fabulousity!  They are a fun group of moms who have a lot of valuable tips to share.

Now to the “window opening”.

Tomorrow, I’ll be starting a new morning radio segment with Mary Beth and Rick over at 101.5 The River.  It’s a weekly commitment that will focus on relevant and current parenting topics!  I’m thrilled to be participating in their show, as I truly respect their work.  I love that while listening to them I can catch up on the latest entertainment buzz, laugh a little at their clever banter, listen to some great music, and never have to worry about the innocent ears are in my car!   They keep things “above board” on The River! 

I’ll be on during the 7:30 am drive time,  and tomorrow, in honor of the Olympics, we’ll be discussing the topic of over rewarding our kids with trophies, medals and ribbons for just about anything and everything they do.  I have a nifty little blog post about the topic that will be available on 101.5 The River’s website tomorrow.  I’ll post  a link when it’s up!

And now to Mama On The Fly’s first give away!

In honor of my segment with Rick and Mary Beth, I’m giving away a MacWagon! 

What’s a MacWagon? 

Oh…let me tell you…it’s a brilliant piece of parenting equipment that I put to good use at the beach last week! 

I pulled the twins in it…

It is quite sturdy…

It even stood up to Reagan trying to eat it…

And staying true to my MacGuyver parenting ways

…Isabella even napped in it! 

My favorite feature of this wagon is that it collapses into practically nothing, leaving room in my trunk for all my other parenting essentials! 

Now you know you want one, right?

    Hi Katie,

    We do have wonderful, loyal supporters from everywhere and we truly appreciate them. Unfortunately, I have to abide by the parameters of the give away. I PROMISE there will be others in the future that will not be as limiting in terms of geographical location. (I’m guessing this has something to do with shipping costs!)

    Thanks so much for continuing to read. I can’t tell you how appreciative I am for your support!

    Carolyn,
    You may be interested in Carol Dweck’s research on the myth of praise. Here is a short video clip that summarizes some of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xs9fddMg71o&feature=related&safety_mode=true&persist_safety_mode=1
    I look forward to hearing and reading your ideas about over-rewarding kids.

    I sure could use one of these with the 5 grandchildren. The oldest one can pull and the four little ones ride. Sign me up. Thanks
