TGIF!! & More Best of The Best (Updated)

First off, thanks so much to everybody that commented about my son's dental woes, you guys made me realize that it's not my fault, and kids don't always tell us about aches and pains, and then when we find out they've had a cavity, we feel so bad, but it's not mamas fault!! And I like the comment about making hubby do the dentist thing from now on...hmmm...I think I could work that:) And he's happy as a clam, he's visiting Grandma and Grandpa all by himself for 3 days!! And boy, it is quiet with just 2 kids in the house!! No constant fighting between my 12 and 7 year old!! It's kind of weird. 3 kids seems like such a leap from 2 kids, is it just me?
And, this evening when I get home from swimming (it's sooo hot here in CA:), I'm going to find out who is the big winner of my Serena & Lily Market Sling Giveaway! You have until 5pm today, CA time to enter or get your extra entries. The odds may be better than they look, because I'm unfortunately going to have to delete many comments because they either are non-blogger and without an email addy, or they didn't answer the question required to win!!
Here are some really great blog contests I've dug up, I'll add to it when I find a good one:)
