Smart Mom Jewelry Review & Giveaway!

Smart Mom Jewelry was inspired by babies who like to tug on Mom's jewelry. Sylish and beautiful, Teething Bling was designed for little ones to handle and chew. Made from the same material as many teething toys, Teething Bling looks great on Moms, Grandmas and Aunts, but is safe for curious babies. Pretty and practical! Teething Bling is made from fine quality materials. As with any adult jewelry, unsupervised handling by children is not recommended. Teething Bling products are made from phthalate and lead free, non-toxic, dishwasher-safe and federally approved. We received the Smart Mom Teething Bling gift set in the mail the other day. I must say the shipping was SO fast! The Teething Bling Gifts sets are packaged in a pretty purple box with a gift card inside! This is such a great gift! I would have loved to receive this as a gift when I was pregnant! However, we can still use the gift, and I actually have to beg my little guy to give me the bracelet so I can wear it! He is in love … [Read more...]

GoodNites Product Review

I was sent a free pair of GoodNites boxers for little boys a couple of weeks ago. I was excited when they arrived, however since my youngest is not yet potty training I decided to give them to my sister to try. But, since I wanted to do a review on them I had her try them while she was at my house. We put them on her little boy and he hated them!!! I hate to do a bad review, but feel that I really must be honest when I am reviewing products. These are the things that I disliked about them...*They are made of a very papery feeling material. I honestly don't know how they could be comfortable for a little one. They really do not look like real boxers when they are on, so if you are thinking your little one won't be made fun of if staying at a friends wearing these to bed at night I honestly think it will be noticeable. *They are basically just a pull up with the papery type covering over them. We actually tried to take the boxer part off of the pull up part because we really didn't want … [Read more...]

Happy 4th Birthday!!!

Today was our 3rd child's 4th birthday. I hope I didn't confuse you the way I said that. I almost confused myself as I was typing it. I had to re-read it just to make sure I wrote it the right way. We had a fun day for the most part. We spent most of the day at home, and Grandma (my Mom) came over to visit for a little bit. When Daddy got home we had to run to town (our vehicle has to be worked on...darn it!) So, we went and picked up a loaner minivan. The kids were excited about having a different vehicle even though it is an old van and doesn't have any of the features like the built in dvd player that our current vehicle has. They are silly boys! I find myself saying that a lot lately. :) Here is a pic of our birthday boy taking a time out from playing to water the trees. I knew a lot of you would love this pic because you are always saying how it looks like the boys are peeing in a lot of the pics I post of them (especially my header.) In this pic he actually IS peeing! Don't … [Read more...]

Super Why Birthday

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a few days. Things have been a bit busy around here as I have been trying to prepare for a Super Why birthday party. Our 3rd child turns 4 this Monday, so we had a party for him on Saturday to celebrate. He dearly loves the Super Why cartoon on PBS, but we were unable to find Super Why decorations and so forth. However, we were able to find someone willing to attempt to make a Super Why cake for us, and I think she did an amazing job! Even better, the cake was the yummiest we have ever tasted!!! We will definitely be going back to her for our next birthday party! Friday as I am trying to straighten the house up and get things ready for the party I hear the boys in the living room giggling and having so much fun, so I grab my camera and head in to see what is going on. Yes, I grabbed my camera, because you just never know what you are going to walk in on and what I was hearing from the other room sounded like it was going to be something good! As … [Read more...]

Computer Chair Review and FREE $20 Credit for 1 Lucky reader!(WINNER: Elizabeth!)

I entered an online contest over at The Book Chook and was so excited last week when I received an email explaining to me that I was the Winner of a gift certificate to CSN Office Furniture!!! I was able to purchase a FREE computer chair! We received the computer chair yesterday. I was SO excited when we got home and the Big package was on our doorstep! The shipping was extremely fast! It only took a couple of days to get here. I would normally wait a couple of more days before I do a review on a product, but I have been sitting in this computer chair so much that I think I can give you an honest opinion on it. I love it! My old chair was falling apart! The kids had pushed it to close to the desk and the leather was all tore up and the inside foam stuff was coming out on the arms as well as the seat. It was just not a pretty sight! One of the things I'm most excited about with the new chair is the arms are hard plastic! Yay, less chance my boys are going to put a whole in them or do … [Read more...]

Wacky Wednesday

We are desperately trying to get back into a routine. Getting up at 6am is hard on all of us, and I have cranky little boys about halfway through the day. They are doing pretty good though. We spent a lot of the day today trying to get everything ready for our soon to be 4 year old's birthday party which is planned for Saturday. I think the rest of the week will probably be spent getting ready for the party. He is Super excited about his Super Why party! When asked what he wants for his birthday he says Super Why costume, Super Why toys, Super Why pen, anything Super Why! He is such a silly boy! He hates to wear clothes. I will dress him for the day and as soon as he goes to the bathroom he strips his clothes off and comes out in nothing but his underwear. However, he is always trying to make a cape out of bath towels and runs through the house saying Super Why to the rescue! It's so cute! I had a hair appointment tonight, which was much needed and way past due. As I'm driving … [Read more...]

Giveaway I found!

I don't normally do this, but I found a giveaway that I REALLY, I mean REALLY, did I say REALLY? WANT!!!! So, I'm going to post it here for you all to see as well! It's a FREE Oreck XL Gold Sweeper!!!! I found this GREAT giveaway at Mom Knows It All You can see the sweeper that is up for FREE at Oreck XL Gold What do you all think? Isn't this a GREAT giveaway! I REALLY need a new sweeper! We have never really had a good sweeper and always seem to be replacing them. I have looked at the more expensive sweepers in the past like Rainbow and Dyson, but could never bring myslef to spend that much on a sweeper. I was on the Oreck site and saw that they offer 5 FREE annual tune ups on the Oreck XL Gold! That is amazing!!! It also has hypo-allergenic filtration, which is awesome since a couple of my little guys have allergies! I'm sure this would help SO much!!! Having 4 BOYS I am ALWAYS running a sweeper! It sure would help if I had a good one! I sure hope I win this so I can write a … [Read more...]

First day back at school

Yes, it looks like the are peeing on the brick wall...ha ha! No, they are not, but when I told them to turn around so I could get a pic from behind for my blog and off their backpacks this is how they stood...ha ha! Today was the boys' first day back to school. As I have said in the past, our oldest is in the 4th grade now and our 2nd born is in Kindergarten. Our Kindergarten doesn't have the all day every day schedule yet, so he will be home with us tomorrow. They have a schedule that pretty much works out that they go two days one week and three the next. I was surprised at how well he did this year since it was all day long! The first year of preschool he cried for the first 2 weeks! The second year of preschool (and he had one of the teachers from the year before, and a couple of the same kids in his class) he cried the first 2 days, which was an improvement from the year before, but I really had thought after the first year he wouldn't have cried. He used to be our quiet and … [Read more...]
