8 EASY POOL CLEANING & MAINTENANCE TIPS

8 EASY POOL CLEANING & MAINTENANCE TIPS Keeping your pool sparkling and clean doesn’t really have to be a burden as you might think. Different pools have different maintenance needs. However, they have one thing in common. The secret to clear sparkling pool water is routine cleaning. No matter if you pay for a pool cleaning service, you still need to take care of a few things on your own to maintain your pool’s condition for years. Here are some awesome tips you need to know to keep your pool pristine clean. Skim for Debris and Empty out Baskets Skim your pool’s surface for fallen leaves, bugs, and debris every few days. Use a long skimmer or net to do this process. This is the fastest way to keep your pool clean.

Its been a long time

HI guys its Katie. As you may have seen my main blog url is down so now I have to use .blogspot.com Any who here is what has been going on. My husband got laid off of work 2 weeks before Christmas!!! That was a really low blow and put me in a bad place. So the end of the year was hard. But I knew he would find a job. And while we had a few really close ones... nothing worked out. So we moved back to CO and live with my sister in law for 6 months before my husband got a job.

So blogging for me really was a set back I just was not feeling it. I missed doing it but did not really have a computer to blog with.

Now we are moving again!!! But this time it is into our own place. I am going to work really hard on coming back and talk to the few followers I have.

I have never been a big blogger before. I have not made more then maybe $50 a year on my blog. I know there are some blogs that have but I have not been that luck. I started my blog to help new moms, and I want to do that again. While…

A nightmare weekend

Where do I even being?! We moved out of Az and to CO about a week ago. We have moved/lived his once before when my oldest was 1. At that time we had never head of something called altitude sickness. We went camping the first day or two once we got to CO. We went on something called pikes peak and its a big one. Aiden was breastfeeding at the time, so I knew something was wrong when he would feed and then it would all come right back out. Needless to say we got him off the mountain and called a urgent care and they told us all about altitude sickness. Aiden was find within a few hours of being off the big mountain.

Any how we knew that this might happen again when we moved again. Not like we where going to go up that mountain again but it is still a higher altitude then what they where used to. So Noah was acting a little sick we thought it was just that. Then a few days later he would wake up crying.... well that was when we saw the molars. We just kinda brushed it off and gave him so…

Wrapy Babywrap

When you have a baby life does not stop. Dinner needs to get made, housework is waiting, but when baby is fussy you have to stop and make them happy. Babywearing is a way you can keep doing the things in life that have to done but keep baby close and happy. Babywearing allows you to bond with baby and have your hands free. I know babywearing has saved the day may times over Chris' life. He just turned three and still has days he goes up.

If you are new to babywearing it is hard to know where to start. I like to suggest to new moms to try out a stretchy wrap, like Wrapy babywrap. A stretchy baby wrap is comfortable for baby and mommy and because you wrap and tie the wrap on they work for any body type and they grow with your baby. This gives you the most bang for your buck.

Check out the video bellow for more info on Wrapy Babywrap.

Yoga Spinner By Think Fun

ThinkFun created another fun family friendly game. The Yoga Spinner is great for ages 5 and up. The goal of the game is to get one card from each color card, white, green, red and blue. You spin and whatever color you land on you pull a card and do the pose on the card, if you can do and hold the pose for 10 seconds you get to keep the card. The white card is a two person pose, all people playing are to do this pose when a white card is pulled. If you land on a smile you can steal a card, a sad face you loose a card. Question mark is opponents' choice and the joker is players choice.
