Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale, review

Image
I know I have not posted a lot about my work out the last few weeks. I have been bad and have not really done anything. I was going through a hard patch and got sick on top of that. I am going to try harder this next month to get on top of it. With that said, I got a cool new Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale. This is a really nice scale, it only about 7 pounds runs on 2 AAA batteries (included) and has a big screen. 



100% Natural Deodorant review

Image
So I am going to start this by saying I am not sure how I feel about this deodorant. I know I never start post off that way but after using this lavender deodorant, (lavender cosmetic is the maker of this lavender deodorant) and am just not sure. When I first got this, how cow it smell good let me start by saying that. I do love the smell of lavender and that is one big reason why I wanted to try this so bad. That and it is all natural. It has (other then lavender :P) rosemary, and tea tree oil. I also like that it goes on clear. There is nothing worse then putting on that while deodorant just to find out that some of it got on your shirt!

The Juppy Momentum giveaway

Image
Logan is not only crawling now but pulling himself up on everything! I know he is not even 8 months yet but I think that boy is going to be walking soon. I remember my dad telling me stories about him as a child when he first learned how to walk. They used to call him the monkey man, because he would walk with his hands in the air! This is because when babies learn to walk they are holding their parents hands, and because they are having to reach up... well I am sure you can just see a little one year old walking around like a money!
Thanks to Juppy there is now a new way to help teach your child to walk. The Juppy Momentum helps to teach your child balance and have them be in the natural posture. Not only that but it relives your back pain too. How you might ask, well if you are not having to bend over to grab your babies hands then your back will not hurt. 

A little downtime playing slots online

Image
Sometimes we all need a break from the daily routine. My days are spent with my children – both under the age of five. I wouldn’t change it for the world, and I consider myself so lucky that I don’t have to go out to work and leave them with a childminder or send them to nursery. We have so much great time together and I know these days are really special. I’ll miss them so much when they’re both in full time school, so I cherish this time we have. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t need a break from being ‘Mummy’ every now and then. And I’ve discovered one way to relax without leaving the house is to get online. Of course, I usually do ‘useful’ things online – like pay the bills, check the bank account and catch up on my email correspondence. But sometimes I just want to have a bit of fun instead.

Magnus Pater, a fun shirt for dad and baby

Image
Lets face it we all know that babies love mirrors, tags and things that make noise. And we also know that babies more often then not are mommies boys/girls. So how do we get them to interact with their dads, grandpas, and uncles more? Well Magnus Pater has come up with a great idea, its called "The Crinkle Shirt"

Mending Life Together, Dog blanket lovey review

Most kids have that one thing they can't live without. For some it is a blanket, others a teddy bear.

I wish I was that good! So I got Logan one of her Dog Critter Blanket, it really is a great mix of a lovey and a blanket.

Help! My Toddler Came Without Instructions: Practical Tips for Parenting a Happy One, Two, Three and Four Year Old By: Blythe Lipman
Kids are fun, they make you laugh, they make you cry and then they make you want to run and hide. I thought being a mom I would know how to do everything, that it would just come to me. Well the first year was not to bad then then Aiden hit 2 and, I'm lost I am so lost. Each child is different and each child act a different way. I wish I had known about this book sooner. Anything to get a little helping hand would have been wonderful. Now Aiden is still young, and Logan is still a baby so now is a great time to read this. Blythe Lipman is on a mission to help parents everywhere, she is offering tons of practical tips with a bit of humor. Because we all need a good laugh!

You’ve got to give bingo a try, guest post

You’ve got to give bingo a try If you’ve never tried out online bingo and think it wouldn’t interest you – think again. I had never thought to try it until my 20-something year-old niece and I were on a long train journey together and, like all young people seem to these days, she was continually busy tapping away into her cell phone. After a while, I politely enquired as to what she was doing and was amazed when she told me she was playing bingo! So she showed me what to do and before you now it, I was hooked. I downloaded the mobile bingo app from my niece’s chosen provider onto my own phone, deposited a few dollars and got a few dollars more straight off the bat as a welcome bonus and have been busily playing away ever since for huge stakes; like a cent per game! Of course, the money isn’t the issue here; what I’ve found is that by concentrating on playing bingo on my cell, I “zone out” completely for a while and this is the main benefit for me. I know there are lots of other games yo…

For The Home Sponsor... Mohawk Rug

Image
This review came as a great surprise for me. When I email them Mohawk I really did not think I had the blogging numbers I needed to get a rug. But here she lie in the middle of my living room floor! If you don't know by now, yes we bought our first home and moved in. However we have not gotten the carpets cleaned yet. They really are not bad and they did not have pets. But we are still going to get it clean in the next month or two. So getting a nice big rug to cover most of the living room was a great idea. At first we where really thinking of putting it in our bedroom, you know make it a little more romantic. But then I thought about how Logan would be crawling soon and I wanted him to be on something a little softer. And good think too because he started to crawl about two weeks ago.

I loved that it was a special place to put her tooth for the tooth fairy. I liked knowing that the tooth fairy would have an easy time finding my daughters tooth.

Reading the Easy Way by 123 homeschool 4 me

Image
My daughter loves to read. She has already read over 100 books this summer. She just graduated kindergarten and can read some books by herself, and others I have to read to her. I love that she is interested in reading.

my relationship with food

OK I know I have been bad about posting my weight loss stuff on here. But I found out some good info that might just help you. I was listening to the radio a few weeks back and they where talking about their relationship with food. I had to laugh at first when I heard this. I was thinking I don't have a relationship with food, I just eat when I am hungry and don't when I'm not. After this last week I learned that was a big fat lie! I am a stressed and a board eater. I found this out in two ways. First was when we first moved in and I did not want to unpack anymore but I wanted something to do. So I started to eat, and eat, and eat. I did not even know it until I went to Elitch Gardens and did not eat almost all day, because I was doing something! Once I found that out I was about to limit what I eat when I am board. Most of the time now I just pick up a good old cup of water. Or I try to snack on things that are not junk!

The other one is a stress eater. This I found out w…

RockNLearn Sight Words 3

Image
My daughter just graduated from kindergarten in May. She has made excellent progress in learning sight words and being able to decode simple words. Summer has come and I don't want her to lose any of those skills. I want her reading skills to continue to improve over the summer.

I am thrilled that Rock N Learn has a new sight words video. My daughter loved sight words 1 and 2, and was excited to get sight words 3 in the mail. You can get a discount if you purchase all 3 sight word videos together.

Bingo – a great way to take time out!

Getting to spend time at home with the kids is the best and most rewarding job that many mums could ever imagine. Of course, it doesn’t bring in income, but if you can afford as a family to spend those early years being there for your children, you will be able to give them a priceless gift in the type of parenting that you can offer them.

Summer is here. Are your days full with swimming lessons, movies, splash pads, parks, etc? Or are your kids sitting at home bored? Either way, summer can be a time of learning loss. To prevent learning loss kids need to do things to stimulate the brain.

I was super excited to find Primary Graffiti and her Summer Homework for Kindergarten Graduates.My daughter just graduated from Kindergarten in May and I am pleased to have a super easy way to keep her learning over the summer.
