The Frugal Texter: Send Free Text Messages by Email

I admit, I am probably one of the last people with a cell phone to not have a text messaging plan. I just don't text very often...perhaps because I don't have a texting plan. But now, the frugal mama in me has found a way to send free text messages.

It's so simple all you do is type the text message like you would an email. Now, don't go crazy and type paragraph after paragraph (that's called a phone call), but you can type up to 160 characters. If you get a little long winded that's fine too. Just send another free text message! I LOVE THIS! Where you would normally type the email address type the person's 10 digit phone number and the wireless carrier's email text extension. Here's a little more help when sending to Verizon Wireless, AT&T Wireless and Cingular customers.

There Really is a Smart Pill (Okay, It's a Drink)

OMG!!! I just realized my daughter is 10 months old today. Where has the time gone? Wow!

She's become so curious about the world. I think it's so cute. But I'm wondering if her curiosity is getting in the way of mealtime. Olivia doesn't seem to be too interested in breastfeeding anymore. The last month or two she's refused to nurse before bed. I'm afraid if she doesn't take it she won't make it through the night. I've been giving her a small bottle (3 oz) sometimes she finishes it, sometimes she doesn't. So other than that she's down to three nursings throughout the day. Most of her calories now are coming from solid food. It's a little stressful for me since I KNOW it's important for her to get either breast milk or formula until she hits the one year mark.

This morning I got a little extra incentive to stick with the breastfeeding through the first year (my goal all along). I stumbled upon this article which links breastfeeding to a higher gpa and a greater chance that she'll go to college. What will they think to study next??? Anyway, I thought you'd be interested.
