Strolling with the Urbini Emi Travel System Available Exclusively at Walmart


I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Urbini. I received an Urbini stroller to facilitate my review as well as thank me for my participation. As a mom of four who has tested out many different pieces of baby gear it has gotten rather hard to impress me.  I admit to being a bit of a stroller snob, hehe.  And so when a box from Urbini arrived on our doorstep I was a bit skeptical if the Emi Travel System would live up to my expectations.  Of course a new stroller can never stay in … …..

Castaway Bay Indoor Waterpark Resort–Paradise in the Middle of a Snow Storm {Sandusky, Ohio} {Plus Giveaway}


As I sit here typing away even more snow is falling from the sky and I’m dreading going to pick Alleigh up from school because that means I have to take the other three little ones out into the frigid cold.  Yet just a few weeks ago I was relaxing on a lounge chair at the side of a tide pool surrounded by palm trees in a perfectly comfortable 82° paradise.  And I want to go back so badly.  The good news is it’s very possible to visit again while the winter keeps dragging on because it’s not a very … …..

Listerine 21 Day Challenge Update & Twitter Party


Thank you to Listerine & The Motherhood for sponsoring todays discussion. About three weeks ago I wrote a blog post sharing that I would be taking part in the Listerine 21 Day Challenge.  I openly admitted that my oral hygiene habits were lacking and I really needed this challenge.  Up to this point I’ve been cavity free, but I always tend to have plaque build up when I visit the dentist.  I wanted to make keeping my entire mouth healthy a habit – after all these teeth need to last me the rest of my life.  Dentures just don’t sound … …..

Moms Don’t Get Sick Days–Be Prepared with Vicks DayQuil & NyQuil Severe Cold & Flu


This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G. I remember a time when catching a cold wasn’t such a bad thing.  I could skip school, call of work, crawl into bed, snuggle deep into my covers, eat some chicken noodle soup, and wait for it to pass while I rested. But one day things changed.  On April 30th 2008 I became a mom.  And guess what.  Moms (and dads) don’t get sick days.  The closest thing we’re going to get to a sick day is convincing our little ones to cuddle up with us on the couch to watch a movie … …..

Happy & Hungry Fun with Eric Carle Booster Seat


Books have always been a big part of my life since I was a little girl, and now as a mom, I really want to continue my love of books with my boys. I especially love children’s classics, and the boys’ bookshelves are full of them. One of their favorite authors has always been Eric Carle, with his simple and interactive sensory books (Aiden would repeat The Very Busy Spider when he could just barely talk!). So when I was able to try out Creative Baby’s Eric Carle Happy & Hungry Booster Seat based on The Very Hungry Caterpillar, I … …..

Feeling Under the Weather? Try Doctor on Demand!


I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Doctor On Demand. I received a free trial coupon code to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. As a mom of four girls I simply do not have time to get sick, but unfortunately it does happen.  And when I am sick the last thing I want to do is trek to the doctors office with all my little ones.  For this and many other reasons I was thrilled to learn about Doctor on Demand. · Doctor On … …..

Make Sure Your Little Ones are Safe&Sound with VTech


This post is brought to you by VTech and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. I remember way back to when we were first registering for our baby shower, and the decisions we had to make about so many items… like what kind of diapers, cups, clothing, or even bedroom décor we were going to use in the new baby’s room. Some were harder than others, especially with bigger items that would last longer- like breast pumps, cribs, swings, and especially a baby monitor. I wanted one that would work really well through multiple rooms and maybe even outside … …..

Celebrating Babies Firsts with Pampers Swaddlers {Giveaway}


Though all four of my girls made very different entrances into this world some things remained very consistent.  One of those being that each of their tiny newborn bums were diapered with Pampers Swaddlers.  In fact Pampers Swaddlers are the #1 choice of hospitals in North America and the first diaper worn by millions of babies.  When using Pampers Swaddlers I can rest assured that my baby is wrapped in superior comfort, protection and blanket-like softness with up to 12 hours of overnight protection.  I especially love the color changing wetness indicator that signals when baby may need to be … …..

Join Me in the Listerine 21 Day Challenge


Thank you to Listerine & The Motherhood for sponsoring todays discussion. Let’s talk oral hygiene.  I know maintaining an oral care routine is very important to the health of not only my teeth, but my entire mouth yet I continue to fail to make it a priority.  The cold hard truth is that most days I only brush my teeth once a day in the morning after I’ve eaten breakfast.  When evening rolls around and I’ve spent far too long staring into the computer screen downing caffeinated beverages to keep myself awake the last thought on my mind is dragging … …..
