Luvs NightLock review and giveaway #DDDivas

Image
I have always been a fun of Luvs. They have always been cheaper then most diapers and for the most part they worked great. I have had a few leaks at night and a few blowouts but that's common. However a few months back we have been buying luvs and pampers. We got pampers only for night because they have the 12 hour diapers. But it was getting pricy to by pampers, after all there what $10 for 20 or so where luvs was $7 for 30.
Well now I don't have to worry about buying any other brand but luvs because they now have a new NightLock diaper ment for sleeping! Ok with Aiden I got up all the time to see if he needed a diaper change but with Logan... Well I let him sleep all night in the diaper. Luvs has also come out with a cute new moneys on the diapers.

Wexy Bags

Image
Back to school time means packing school lunches. While I usually use reusable lunch bags and containers sometimes disposables are the best option. For example, when my daughter goes on field trips they ask for lunches that everything can be thrown away. This means I have to send in disposable items. I was pleased to find Wexy bags.

Online Gym, WorkoutsOnDemand.com

Image
As you might remember I have been a little lazy on working out. More so over then this last two weeks because I have been working full time. But with that being said I was still able to do some stuff from home thanks to WorkoutsOnDemand.com I am ale to workout anywhere I can get wifi. I say this because it works on my iPad too. Because I don't have a tv in my room I just set up my iPad where I can see it and do my little or long workout.

I can do everything from yoga to dance to cardio. I have come to hate the gym, the only I like about it is the pool, steam room and the hot tub! There is just to many people at the gym and let's face it when you walk in, you always feel like the fatest one in the room.

There is nothing better then being about to work out at home in any room you want. No one is watching me and I can look as funny as I want doing it. WorkoutsOnDemand.com has over 200 gym-style exercise video that you can ether stream or download. So don't let the gym be th…

Review of SpermCheck Fertility

Image
I can only imagine how had it is for a family that is TTC. I am sure you are doing everything you can to get pregnant. Everything from taking prenatals, lifting your legs, even shots. But what if you where  not the one with the problem? It can't hurt to have the man checked out too right? But I bet he is scared to go in to a doctors office and, well you know.....So what not find out from the comfort of your own home? Thanks to SpermCheck you now can.

What's going on

Image
As I am sure you could tell I have been not doing anything the last two weeks. Here is what's been going on in my life. As you know we bought our first home almost 3 months ago. Well once we moved in Ryan quit his job. We both knew he needed to and he had a job just about lined up, when they told him they went with someone within the company. So he has been out of work for two months. This made me feel like I needed to get a job so we can catch up on the two months of late bills. For the most part Ryan make enough for me to be a stay at home mom and I am great full for that. With that being said I went to work at a day care. I chose a day care because first of all my kids would have to be watched by someone and with me having no real schooling I knew I would not make a lot no matter where I went. At least if I worked at a day care I would be able to get a discount for the kids. 
I found this one place that sounded great and I was going to try and become a lead teacher. See in CO yo…

How good or bad to change parenting behavior in modern world

Image
How good or bad to change parenting behavior in modern world The modern world is distraught with stress and overwhelmed with materialistic existence which have also strained through the nuances of every relationship even that between a child and their parents. This intricate relationship, which is also the basis of human society, is a result of much stress and anxiety given the changed equation of the society and the very materialistic approach of humanity. The surrounding atmosphere is filled with temptations and misinformation. World politics, movies, TV and print media are screaming more than ever for children's attention to all the erroneous traits like bragging, deceit, lies, treachery, violence, sex, junk food, foul language, mistreatment, and so many more wrongdoings. Given this challenging times to bring up children, parents are more than overwhelmed with what values to promote and what to let slip by, where to draw the line of discipline, whether to explain the wrongdoings…

Educational Insights

Image
Educational Insights is a company that offers a wide variety of educational products for parents and teachers. They have many wonderful items that I'm sure my kids would love to use.
I was sent the Magic Moves Electronic Wand. I have a 5 year old daughter, a 3 year old son, plus a 2 year old that I babysit. This product says good for ages 3+ but the 2 year old enjoys using this as much as my kids do.

The magic wand is a handheld wand that lights up. My kids loved watching the lights. Push a button on the wand and it gives you a direction such as spin like a merry go round or stomp like a dinosaur. The kids then listen to the direction and act out whatever command was given.

I love that this gets my kids to follow directions. Listening and following directions is an important skill that is sometimes hard for a young child. All 3 kids loved playing with this and acting out the directions given.



Another plus about this wand is that it encourages physical activity. Many kids these da…

Rock N Learn Money and Making Change

Image
My daughter has several Rock N Learn videos. She loves them all and so does her little brother. So when I thought about back to school, I wanted to work with Rock N Learn again.

My daughter is just starting 1st grade. She has been made great improvements in Reading so this time we decided to choose a Math video. We choose Money and Making Change. She picked this one because she likes Money. I picked it because I knew she doesn't know the names and values of all the different coins.

Knocked up to knocked out workout DVD review

Image
Ok so I have been really really lazy with my working out as of late. I have been dealing with lots of stress, health problems and personal problems. And let's face it when you have a lot of stress on your plate the last thing you are thinking about is working out. With that being said I did get a great at home work out DVD that I started to.... Well watch but not really work out to yet. I know I know yell at me now! But I told myself that as of tomorrow morning no matter how I feel I will feel so much better if I work out just a little.

Breast or Bottle: Which is best?

Breast or Bottle: Which is best? If 70% of British women choose to breastfeed, you can be certain that most of them have hundreds of questions. Here are some answers from the experts at www.nanniesinc.com to help you find your path to the Milky Way… Is breast milk better? Breast milk provides real protection against germs. It possesses an immune system-boosting quality that no other milk can ever provide. Apparently, it protects babies against digestive infections during the nursing stage and throughout the whole of the first year, provided they are breastfed for at least 13 weeks. Another huge advantage is that it contains a mixture of nutrients that are fundamental for a baby's growth. Made up of 85% water, soluble fatty acids, proteins and mineral salts, it offers twice as much Vitamin A, B, C, D and E than cow's milk.

Bad vs Good Lessons: What lessons kids learn fast

Image
Bad vs Good Lessons: What lessons kids learn fast The home is the first classroom to your child. No matter, whether it is the house, an orphanage, the market-square or the streets- where the child is brought up that is his home. Parents are the first teachers and role models of their child. They are influential for shaping up the child’s behavior as well as their children’s reactions and attitudes. Children learn the behaviors from the role models around them. Parenting is one of the challenging tasks in the world. It requires serious practice and sacrifices to be a good parent. Children learn fast what their parents do than what they say. Children are like raw earth and parents mold them into good human beings. It is up to you to impart good values to your child.
