5 Reasons Why I Let My Kids Use My Cell Phone
February 3, 2017

I grew up with a Speak and Spell.  That was amazing technology at the time.  I never dreamed that 25 years later I would be able to work from my cell phone.  Technology has allowed us to simplify our lives.  With a push of the send button, we can send information without busy signals and answering machines. The downside is that kids are very vulnerable with this fast-paced technology and don't understand yet that the outside world is full of criminals waiting to take advantage of any opportunity. So, when I had kids, I swore I would not let them use my cell phone, for this reason.  But things quickly changed and situations came up where I decided to hand it over to them. Here are five reasons …

Earth Mama Angel Baby is on Sale!
January 25, 2017

. My favorite lotion EVER is the Earth Mama Angel Baby Calming Lavender Baby Lotion...for myself! lol.  This delicious, toxin free baby lotion is blended with organic herbal ingredients to moisturize and protect sensitive, delicate skin. I have a ritual when I use the Calming Lavender Baby Lotion.  I apply it all over my body every night before I go to bed.  I love breathing in the lavender and feeling a sense of ease after my crazy day with the kids.  It's never calm with two boys under the age of five!  Then I do my mediation as I slip into a peaceful sleep. Funny thing is, I should be putting on my kids before bed.... But they do enjoy the Angel Baby Lotion after their baths.   It is …

Nurturing My Son's Creativity With The Kano Computer Set
January 25, 2017

I just started learning code.  There's no way around it when you have a Blog.  But I remember learning code in high school and the confidence I received when using it and figuring it out.  It was amazing! This Christmas my son shocked me with these words, "Mommy I want the Kano Computer...that's ALL I want!"  All his friends talk about Super Mario and video games - I have no clue about them because he's just not getting them.  Period. He didn't care about anything else, not Spiderman or Ninja Turtles, no Legos, or even remote control cars.  All he wanted was the Kano Computer Kit.  He was obsessed.  Maybe it's because he's growing up.  Or because he see his parents on their computers for their jobs so …

Bobux Shoes
January 12, 2017

I have boys!  Dirty, scruffy, ruff and tumble, delicious boys. And their shoes last about two days.  No, I'm just kidding.  But seriously, they go through shoes fast.  Some last longer than others but both my kids have "challenging" feet.  This is not from my side of the family.  Hahaha. They both have wide, square, high insteps.  It's so much fun looking for shoes!   Now, my five year old has discovered laces and that big boys wear shoes with laces, so that narrows it down a bit.  lol. We decided to try Bobux Shoes but I will confess that I was a little nervous shopping for shoes online when their feet are such a challenge.   But I was willing to give it a shot. The first pair of …

Getting Ready for the Holiday Season with OshKosh B'gosh
November 27, 2016

In Florida, we look forward to any change in the weather towards the holiday season, even if it's just a few degrees.  We are grateful not to be stuck inside.  For some people, snow signifies the holiday season but for us, it's in the spirit of being surrounded by family, eating, shopping and kids' laughter. We don't buy a lot of winter wear but when we do, it's well thought out.  Sometimes a cardigan can just be worn by itself.  But it's also a great add on to take to the movie theater or the mall as it can get chilly in those places. My boys loved these OshKosh B'gosh Space Dye Shawl Collar Cardigans. They can be worn alone as seen here but would also look …

5 Items Every New Mommy Needs
November 26, 2016

We all know that feeling as parents, the moment we walked into the baby store to pick out a stroller. It's exciting. It's scary. It's overwhelming. It's... necessary. Here's my story: I researched online. I asked my friends. I went on Facebook groups, and by the time we got to the store I was frazzled by so much information going on in my head. We talked to an associate and tried about 4 different strollers, weighing out the pros and cons, the weight, the height (we are tall), and the price. We left even more overwhelmed than when we came. Then, to add insult to injury, we went to another retailer and did the same thing! Two more times! Boy, do I wish I had just one place …

Pure Skin. Pure Protection. TRUE ORGANIC by Dr. Fedorenko
September 26, 2016

  I'm always trying different organic products for the kids.  You can never have too much sunblock or bug repellent in South Florida, especially with the Zika virus out there.  I want to make sure my kids are protected.  Their skin is so delicate and there are so many chemicals out there ready to damage it, I just want to give them the best. So I tried Dr. Fedorenko's True Organic products. The first thing that drew me to it was the packaging.  It's so bright and modern.  Some organic products look so outdated.  But Dr. Fedorenko's True Organic products look fresh, clean, and most importantly they are green! The first product I tried was the True Organic™ Sun Stick™.     This is good for all skin types and helps nourish, revitalize, calm, and …

The World's Purest Baby Wipes Are at Walgreens
September 23, 2016

  So many unexpected things happen when you're a parent.  It's like living on a roller coaster.  But I'm up for the ride no matter what.  My kids are everything to me. I don't know how many times I have rushed to Walgreens for an emergency item. Whether it's medicine for my family for a cold or a flu, or something for the kids, like bandaids, neosporin or saline.  They even have baby formula there! Thank God Walgreens has long hours.  Once you're there it's easy to find that baby isle.   Walgreens is not the "baby depot", so I might not find my favorite brand of diapers in bulk, but it is nice to know that they carry the amazing WaterWipes.  Yes, the worlds purest baby wipes are available …

Six Reasons To Try the NEW Pampers Easy Ups
September 7, 2016

When I tried to potty-train my first son it was a complete disaster.  We tried everything under the sun.  He was the last child in his class to finally do it, and we thought it would never happen. I was so worried.  People told me it would happen and that he wouldn't be eighteen years old when it did. So at three and a half he finally caved.  We just stopped talking about it.  Then it happened.  Unfortunately, we had put a picture of a dollar store toy skateboard in the bathroom (suggested by the pediatrician for incentive) but he believed it was a life size skateboard.  So guess what he got for his Birthday?  A skateboard! With our second son, I really believed it would be …

Zika! is all we hear about here in Florida.  We are in the middle of Hurricane season which makes it so humid and hot, a great breeding ground for mosquitoes and I have pregnant friends warned to stay inside because of it.

#PSBackToSchool
August 6, 2016

I've always been concerned with what my kids eat. It started early when they began eating baby food.  We made  such a big deal the first time we gave them something, waiting for their expressions to see if they liked it or not.  Their expressions are priceless!   Usually, applesauce is the biggest hit.  But they also need veggies too!  I liked to mix them so they got the best of both. I made my own purees and froze them; but it's messy, and time consuming.  So I would often just grab food pouches at the store for convenience.  The problem with these pouches is that they are often highly processed, even the organic ones. This is why Pure Spoon, a mom-owned start-up from Austin Texas, is …

WaterWipes
July 20, 2016

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. I am that mom that uses baby wipes for pretty much anything.  I've been using baby wipes for over four years now.  They have cleaned many hands and feet, including my own, wiped away dirt and grime off of toys and tables.  I probably won't ever stop using them; they are so practical.   I've even wiped down my car with them. But it scares me to know what wiping a toddlers face with a baby wipe does to them.  Unfortunately, out of desperation, I have had to do this in the past. I honestly did not realize how many chemicals where in baby products …

timi & leslie Marcelle 7-Piece Bag Set in Copper/Saddle
July 6, 2016

When I receive a timi & leslie bag, I always feel like I am getting the ultimate experience when I open the package.  I know that no matter what, I have something that is quality, well made, fashionable and durable. The Marcelle 7-Piece Bag Set -in Copper/Saddle does not disappoint.  The color is beautiful and exactly as the name says:  copper.  The clutch is lighter (saddle) and matches the saddle details on the bag and has a credit card holder inside along with a zippered pocket. I love carrying my bags, but when the two little ones were younger I used the adjustable cross body, detachable strap so I could wear the bag hands free.  This is a great option when you have multiple kids.  I also …

Book Bears Children's Book Subscription Service
May 24, 2016

  This is a sponsored post facilitated by Book Bears, however, all opinions are mine. We all know that reading is important for children, especially during the ages of 2-5.  This is when they develop speech and communication.  The imagination can also take us to amazing places.  My favorite book as a child was The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe and of course my favorite character was Lucy.  My kids also have favorites  and they're always at their fingertips.  But there is also room for new books!   I leave books lying around everywhere.  I never want my kids to get bored.  In my house you will find children's books on my bedside table, in their room, in our living room, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, …

Era Organics Honeybuns Baby Body Wash
March 10, 2016

This is a sponsored post. I've got two dirty boys.  When they are clean, it's only for a second, lol.  So when I give them baths, I also take in the experience like a ritual.  I love the act of opening in the bottle and smelling it - even though I might of smelled it a thousand times - it's aromatherapy after a long day full of Superheros and Ninjas, parks and digging dirt.  I find it relaxing at the end of the day, even though it's not me who is taking the bath.  I also love the benefits of organic washes because you really get the raw experience of the natural fragrance and ingredients.  I have reviewed quite a few organic baby washes and they …
