Disclosure: This post brought to you by aden + anais! Your babies sleeping space is one of the most important spots you need to check for safety, following very closely behind their car seat. To reduce the risk of SIDS, The CJ Foundation recommends that you remove all loose bedding from the crib and check your baby for overheating. Safe sleeping for us is easily accomplished by using and aden + anais sleeping bags or swaddles. Sleeping bags eliminate the need for a traditional blanket. There are three different types of sleeping bags; cozy, cozy plus and single layer. The cozy sleeping bag is perfect for cooler nights or air-conditioned nurseries.

Play Proof by Nanotex

Disclosure: I received samples of Play Proof by uniforms compliments of Nanotex. When it comes to play time, my kids play hard! They play so hard I have to make sure that their school uniforms can withstand them. Nothing is more frustrating than washing clothes after the first week of school and finding clothing that is so stained, that they are trash. (Been there, done that.) Thanks to Play Proof uniforms by Nanotex my kids can play as hard as they want, without worry. Play Proof school uniforms with Nanotex are exactly what they say they are, Play Proof. Your kids can run, jump, eat and play in them and after washing, they still look brand new. They are wrinkle resistant, which is great for me because I'm not sure I even know how to use an iron. They also easily release stains in the wash, even chocolate and spaghetti sauce! My … [Read more...]

Disclosure: The gate pictured below was provided compliments of Richell USA. I have six kids, a dog and two cats. Needless to say, there are often times when my hands are quite literally, full. However there are also specific rooms in my house that I would like to keep the kids or pets out of, or for that matter keep them in!

After school snacks in my house need to be fast! Fast and yummy. The quicker I make them, the faster they eat them. The faster they eat them, the quicker we can start homework.

Skylanders® Portal Master Competition #GoodFunForAll

Untitled

Disclosure: This post has been sponsored by Frito-Lay, but my opinions are my own. This summer I had a billion things planned for hubby and I to do with the kids. Then I had a baby. A lot of the things we had planned to do were not possible with a newborn so I had to get creative. After a bit of brainstorming and a ton of Pinterest searching we decided to host a Skylanders® Portal Master Competition. How do you host a Skylanders® Portal Master Competition you ask? Well you simply gather a bunch of young portal masters and have them work at stations to restore the elements. We had our competition at a friend’s house who had a much bigger yard than us. The Motion Of The Potion: Restore the magic element by creating your own potion. You will need 1 scoop of pop rocks, 2 scoops of coloring mix and water. The second the water hits the … [Read more...]

Disclosure: I was provided a WHITES gift set from Zipit in exchange for an honest review. Finding comfy clothes for Caleb to wear is very important to me.

Add the adorable top knot hat and you … [Read more...]

Disclosure: The Daydreamer dog bed pictured below was sent compliments of Precision Pet. Lily is an odd puppy. She will play with the kids every now and then but her favorite thing to do is sleep.
