Surviving the Yuckies When Sick Gets Real™ {Plus Giveaway}

Advil

School is quickly coming to a close for our boys, and we are all so excited for the arrival of warmer weather.  This year, we even have a new baby joining us, and we’re ready for a summer packed full of fun and learning!  But unfortunately, along with all of the outdoor activities and beautiful weather, a nasty cold bug or two seems to catch on in the transition.  Even though we try our best to keep those germs away, sick still seems to get very real in our house.  Plus,when you have a home full of boys like we … …..

Printing Photos is a Breeze with the Epson Small-in-One

Printingwallets

I love taking photos of my kids.  I try to take as many as I can so that those fleeting moments can be captured forever, and looked back upon when they’re older.  With my iPhone, I find that I do a great job at the photo taking and posting on social media to share with my family and friends.  What I don’t do a great job with, however, is actually printing out the photos to keep for the future.  Just the other day, I realized that I never printed of the boys’ school photos for our family, even though I … …..

The Perfect Christmas Gift with GuruNanda Oils and Diffuser

Stock

A sample was provided for my review, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I love Christmas and giving gifts, but I always find that struggle of wanting to get really good gifts that someone will enjoy without ruining my budget.  Because when it’s all said and done, I definitely want to be able to pay my bills and not gain any debt while blessing others.  For me, gift exchanges and meaningful gifts on a smaller budget require thinking outside the box, and sometimes, a pleasant surprise find in the store.  Well this Christmas, there’s a very pleasant and … …..

Learning Social Skills Through Live, Interactive Guided Play with Captain McFinn

BothPlaying

This post is part of a sponsored campaign for Captain McFinn’s Swim & Play App. I received compensation for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own. I love helping my boys learn new skills, but  especially love when I get to see them grasp new concepts outside of strictly education.  For instance, Reese is currently learning life and social skills in his preschool class, like manners, hand washing, and preparing simple snacks.  I love seeing him grow as a person, especially when that growth tends to lead into new friendships and relationships for him. It’s so fun … …..

Unique European Toys from Magicforest this Christmas

AssembledCar

I’ve been talking about Christmas and shopping a lot lately… probably because I am just so far behind! So it’s definitely on the forefront of my mind as I really try to come up with those fun, unique, and wonderful gifts.  I try hard to not only get my kids toys that they’ll play with, but ones that will last up to some serious use.  And every once in awhile, when I can find that “it” gift, I get that joy that comes with giving another person something really special.  Luckily, I can always seem to find that “it” gift … …..

Sunny’s Must Have Holiday Gifts for Kids

MustHaves

We’ve been so busy finishing the sale of our home and buying a new one that Christmas and the holiday season have totally snuck up on me! I tend to be a very early shopper, searching out the best deals throughout the spring and summer. By now, I usually have a majority of my shopping completed- especially for my boys (ages 2, 4, and 5).  Well, this year, I have about three things bought for them.  Since I thought a few of you may be in the same boat as me with the bustle of the school year taking over, … …..

Reclaim Bedtime with The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep {Giveaway}

RabbitWhoWantsToFallAsleepCOVER

All samples and prizing are provided by Random House Kids, and all thoughts and opinions are my own. As I sit here writing this, I can clearly hear three little boys “sleeping”.  And by sleeping, I mean playing, scheming plans for tomorrow, and doing everything but lying still and going to sleep!  Bedtime always has been a battle for us to get all three of our boys quiet, still, and asleep at the same time.  We’ve tried just about every method out there, and while some help, the struggle. is. real.  Do you guys struggle like we do?  My guess … …..

Columbus Zoo and Aquarium- Animals and So Much More!

Columbus Zoo Orangutan

Recently, both my family and Mama Harper’s family got together for an amazing weekend filled with tons of fun.  We met together in Columbus, Ohio for MommyCon on Saturday, and then continued our fun on Sunday by visiting the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. We had never been there, so my boys were pretty excited to visit a brand new zoo and see all of the animals.  After a long, fun day, I can tell you that their excitement was completely fulfilled, and we can’t wait to go back! On of the first things we did upon entering the Columbus Zoo … …..

On the Go with Games to Go!

AtTable

Life has changed pretty drastically since my oldest started school.  While I thought life was busy before, I didn’t realize just how busy it gets when you have bus stops to get to and sports practices all throughout the week.  Its definitely been go, go, go!  I’ve also learned that with all of that rushing and running around, my kids are needing more activities that we can pick up and take with us wherever our schedules lead us. One of my favorite game companies, Peaceable Kingdom, has come up with a great solution for crazy schedules just like ours- Games … …..

VTech Go! Go! Smart Animals Grow & Learn Farm Review

ThreePlaying

The product has been provided by VTech so I could experience it with my family; however, the thoughts and opinions are all my own. We love playing with VTech toys in our house, and as I’ve recently shared, our boys have all had VTech toys through their many stages of growth and development- newborn to the kindergarten years.  While they loved the baby toys, I’m finding that Aiden seems to be the most interested in his VTech toys right now as he’s learning to write words and form sentences.   And since the other two boys know that VTech means fun, … …..
