Baby Food Containers- Sprout Cups #REVIEW

As a member of I was able try out  Sprout Cups 4oz size. They have many great quilities. 
  • 00% BPA and PVC Free - interlocking cups lock to each other AND to their tray.
  • Dry erase function to easily record contents and date (erase prior to Microwaving)
  • Microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe
  • Screw on lids to keep food fresh without popping off
  •  2 and 4 ounce cups, tray, and dry erase marker

You can find them on  Amazon

 My thoughts--- there are many storage containers out there. This brand is nice because the different sized can inter lock with each other.  I like the larger sized container as the child gets older they make for great trail mix holder or other snacks on the go . While there is a nice dry erase spot...when you wipe one label off there is still a faint print on it. Also when storing in the freezer don't fill to top. Lids will pop off.

I believe for the price this product gets a 4 out of 5 stars. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Disclaimer - I received a bottle of this OraMD in order to facilitate this review for my readers. All opinions are 100% that of my own. 

I don't know about you but I'm always on the lookout for a better mouth wash,stronger mint etc. But to carry around a few breath mints for the day  really doesn't give you mouth a very clean feeling. I was introduced to ORA MD a drop that is 3-in-1. This drop can be used on your toothbrush-they suggest 2-5 drops...I say start with 2; any more is VERY over powerful for the first few uses. The product is safe for children 3 and older.

 Formulation of three pure botanical oils of almond, spearmint, and peppermint. There are 100’s of types of these 3 botanical oils and dozens of properties for each type – literally millions of combinations. This is a scientific formula matching the right properties of the right oils.  The bottle is small enough to pack in your purse,during the day you can dab one drop on your tongue  keeps your mouth fresh.

Plus, it effectively removes plaque and surface stains without causing sensitivity. It’s the secret to eating without fear.

*of a leading Sensitive Toothpaste Brand

**to exposed roots

Sensitive Toothpaste

I have to say my teeth are pretty sensitive to very hot/cold  foods so I was thrilled to try it. Within the first few days I could see a change in how hot/cold felt on my teeth. While the taste was...well lets just say I had brush with a minty mouth wash handy... the results are VERY well worth it. I checked out the product at the store and was thrilled to see that it also was available with  a freshing burst of flavor.

Check out my before and after shots

Enjoying Mother's Day in the roaring 20’s

Thanks to the good people over at wholesale Halloweens costumes I got to go back in time for Mother's Day.
I love the great variety of costumes they have at Wholesale Halloween Costumes. Adult costumes  and a super selection for kids. Although Halloween is still a few months off our family loves having theme parties and we are always on the look out for  costumes.  With the opening of Gatsby Mother's Day weekend I knew this was onc movie was GOING TO SEE! I'm a sucker for dressing up in  20s fashion

 The good-time gals and guys of the roaring 20's and 30's! Flappers and gangsters are most associated with the years from 1920 to 1933, when Prohibition spawned speakeasies and wild parties like in The Great Gatsby, and women favored shorter skirts and shorter haircuts!

Here's the costume I picked out for my daughter to wear...and WOW the 
lots  of pieces included.

Here's my lil gansta!

There are a few of the items that are shown in the photo on the costume package and they are not included, so read the item description VERY carefully. I did have an issue with pieces missing and had to contact PR... response was very quick and I  felt like my concerns were  being herd and dealt with in a speedy manor.

Its always good to keep in mind how and where you/child will be wearing the costume. The dress part of this was VERY short so pants were a must. Also if you shopping for Halloween time take into account your child may want to layer up under the outfit. I bought this one true to size, knowing we'd be indoors. My daughter did say that the waist band was a little uncomfortable for her, but she did have room to put a thin tee under.

 Over all we both gave this costume a 5 of 5 stars!

Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Staying covered with Coppertone!

Wet 'n Clear™ Continuous Spray SPF 45+              Continuous Spray SPF 50 Sunscreen          SPORT® Continuous Spray SPF 15 Sunscreen     

Summer fun! Brought to you by a Coppertone Water MOM

Is it Hot, Hot, Hot, Outside?

Around here we've had our month of "SPRING" and the great weather has come.

 Here are some  ideas sure to cool you and your kids!!!

 First step in any outside fun-

-SUNSECREN!!!!! It is important to keep effective sunscreen available whenever you are out  in the sun. I keep my family protected with Coppertone products.

Faces Lotion SPF 50 SunscreenI carry a lil extra in my bag in case outside play wasn't planed but happens, got to get covered. Don't forget back of the neck and top of ears...often misses and ALWAYS BURNED! 
Year-round sun protection is important as we safeguard our families from the dangers of sun exposure. Coppertone line has the whole family covered!!! ( LITERALLY!!)  


These are some  super fun ways to spend some time with your little ones and make some wonderful summertime memories!

Have the kids sit at the edge of a baby pool with a little water,have them put  just their feet in, give each kid a small bowl next to them, then dump a bucket of ice into the baby pool---see who can pick up the most ice cubes WITH ONLY THEIR FEET in 45 seconds.

This is just like tag -The person who is "it" throws the wet water balloon to tag other players. If hit, they are the new "thrower". 

 Play this similar to 'Hot Potato'!

Place children in a circle and play some music
When the music goes off, the child holding the water balloon 'pops it' and splashes them self.
As children 'pop and splash'--they are out.
You can reward each child with a simple candy/sucker as they leave the game.
The last player left is the winner. (Actually all kids win in this game! =^D)


Instead of a car wash…have a toy wash!--take all washable toys outside and let children have fun washing them.Children cool off...and YOU get clean toys!!!!
