AccuClean: No More Fears

May 30, 2008 By · No Comments

Summer time is here for us and I’m sure within the next few weeks it will be for you soon. But there’s a fear of mine here, actually any time we’ve got spring and summer. Can you guess? It deals with the air and all the nasties that float inside it. Yep, it’s allergy season and what’s a mom’s worst nightmare when all her kids want to do is play outside, it’s allergies.

I remember SoccerBoy breaking down in tears during baseball season because the leaves, pollen, dust, etc were just too much. This is a kid that I had no clue had allergies because we had been living in the desert. We’ve moved since then but I won’t be surprised again, we are in an area that has nothing but trees, grass, tons of pollen and dust.

I recently got an email about a new thing called, AccuClean and bascially this will CLEAN your room. By clean I’m talking if you look towards your window during the day you probably see tons of little things floating between the sunrays. Am I right? With AccuClean it takes that out and destroys it.This is actually one of those air-filtrations that takes it all out of your house. So if you’ve got a child that deals with this every year you may want to look into it.

Last Day of School

May 27, 2008 By · No Comments

Of course what better way to celebrate the last day of school then for mom to have a ton of deadlines. But I did finish and it is free time. Course the kids just want to veg in front of the tv and watch movies. haha. Figures right?

Tonight we’ll watch 4 movies, ending with scary and eat popcorn and cookies. I’ve also baked a cake since it is the last day and all. What do you do to celebrate the last day of school?

Lets take a peek at grades:

SoccerBoy has improved or stayed the same in every subject.
Math assessment went from a 72 to a 91%
Science Assessment went from 82 to a 90%
Social Studies went from a 79 to a 92%

As for his reading, which ya’ll know he struggled with he is now at grade level and is loving to read. So of course this summer his own goal is o read 1000 pages. Some type of contest they have at the school. Actually the school allowed every student to check out a total of 10 books each for the summer. WOW! I love this school.

Ballet Girl has stayed pretty much the same since she came here. Her biggest issue with the transition is she wasn’t the key helper and got in trouble a bit for talking and helping others. She doesn’t yet get she can’t do that here. Oh and she’s discovered what a “crush” is. As for her reading, she was almost (by a few points) a year above her reading level. I figure she’ll be over it by the end of the summer.

I’m very happy with both kids and I know they’ll love the summer. Oh and for those that have already been reading my blog you should know that just because it is summer does NOT mean they’ll stop learning. We’ve already made our first goal list for week one. More on that next time.

KC Mompreneur Meeting

May 22, 2008 By · No Comments

Today I’ll be headed down to Kansas City for a Mompreneur Meeting, this will be the first time I’ve ever went to something like this so I’m already excited. I will finally meet bloggers as well as discuss things with Hewlett Packard, Walgreens and BSM media. I was thrilled when the BSM media invited me to go, of course I accepted.

We’ll be leaving around 5 a.m. this morning (so I’m already gone) and will have to actually wait at the hubby’s shop until we are able to go off to my event. Should be an interesting wait. haha, I’m totally bringing the laptop with me. (think I wouldn’t?)

I have found one other blogger that will be going, her website is Professional Scrapbooking Services. Maria Bailey, CEO of BSM Media will also be one I seek out when I first get there.

As for me, it’ll just be myself along with some papers and a few review products to show what it is I do. I’ll let ya’ll know how things go. Okay I’m off to get ready as I know getting up at 5 a.m. is going to be hard with 4 kids and a hubby.

Clorox Cleans Better

May 19, 2008 By · No Comments

MomCentral sent me a thing of Clorox disinfecting Wipes and I have a few comments for them. Not to worry its all good, in fact I’ve always loved Clorox and even more now.

Why? For one it is easier and all I have to do it pull them out, heck they can even go in the car with us and clean areas of a camp I’d never touch otherwise. Or the bottom of a swing set. Yes, I’ve been known to do that.

But for this I’ll say it comes in its own container, just like a baby wipes container so DON’T mix them up.

We’ve used these on just about everything and I really don’t need to toss it away immediately. Many times I’ve had to toss napkins because they got too soaked. With the wipes though you clean until YOU are done, not when the wipe is. These smell good too, they don’t stink with too much chemical smell on them. Actually mine is scented with the lavender scent so they actually smell really good. I’ve wiped down every room in the house, bathroom, toy room, toys, kitchen counters, tv area and of course the exersaucer.

The Clorox wipes take 99.99% of all germs, which is great for those with kids as you know they are always bringing in germs and getting sick. I’ll definitely be buying more when I run out.
