I can’t believe that another week is in the books. It has been an eventful week in the Frugal Rules household. But, then again, when is a house full of three children that are five and younger not eventful? This week was especially so, if you read my How Budgeting is Like Potty Training article last week you’ll know that we’ve just begun potty training our near three year-old son a few weeks ago. So, we’ve had plenty of starting and stopping with him and general mayhem. Well, the climax of the craziness was reached on Wednesday when we discovered him “finger painting” in his room!! I’ll never look at finger painting the same again. Proving himself a true man, he didn’t touch any of his things but used his sister’s bed as his canvas!
Now that I’ve disgusted most of you, I am on to my favorite blog posts of the week. As always, there were a lot of good ones out there in the blogosphere, so it was once again difficult to narrow it down to just ten. I’ve added a few from blogs that are new to me, or ones that I have not mentioned for a few weeks. As always, the ten I selected are in no particular order and if you have some time I highly recommend you checking some of them out. Have a great weekend everyone!
