Disclosure: This is a review, the product mentioned was sent to us to review. But I loved it and thought you and/or your children would too.

Just at the beginning of the school year my kids got a surprise at the front door. Build-a-Bear Workshop wanted to start their education off with a great big splash and had sent us some of their new Summer pals. The kids were definitely excited with their new-found-friends especially Mr.Nicoli once his siblings were at school he decided to help himself to see what was inside this “special package” we’d got that his siblings wanted to open so badly, but since he’d been in tears at the beginning of them going back to school I had told them that he would get the honors of opening it the following day so when they went off to school he’d have something fun to do. Boy did he too. By the way, Build-a-Bear Workshop now has puppets. I’m not sure if they always have or if this was something new but to me it was definitely new and I love it. With a toddler puppets can definitely come in handy as you can instruct them to chat with the little ones and they always talk back to the puppets even if it is toddler talk.

#SparkleWithDasani Water Review

July 18, 2014 By · No Comments

Disclosure: This is a paid post, however with the summer heat I thought you’d like to learn a bit about a sparkling water that are hitting the store shelves near you. 


As many of you know we live in the Mojave Desert which means we are constantly needing to drink even more water than before, sometimes the kids hate drinking plain water. Did you know you can sparkle up the taste with Dasani now? That’s right now Dasani is sparkling things up and adding some flavor to their waters but not only that they also come in cans. My kids instantly wanted to try these drinks when they came in the mail because they thought they were new sodas. The apple and berry seemed to be more of a hit, they didn’t really care for the lemon or lime. How do you get your kids to drink water? While I know this isn’t completely water this does add a bit of fizz to their plain waters and is better than coke. Oh the best part is there are NO calories so if you are watching your figure this summer or just trying to count calories this is a great drink for you.

What makes you sparkle? Answer this and maybe even enter the #SparkleWithDasani giveaway for a chance to win. My kids are what makes me sparkle…that and getting all dressed up. Dressing up is not something I do on a daily/weekly basis so when I do I definitely sparkle. Do you? I’d love to hear what makes you sparkle.

#MovingMoments with Nicoli

June 13, 2014 By · 17 Comments

This is a paid post for Huggies Little Movers Diapers, now your little man/lady can get around much quicker without worry. All opinions and pictures are mine, your opinions may differ.

Wow I can’t believe how fast a year has flown by and you really get to see that when you have kids graduate and get ready to move on with another school year. This past year my youngest son turned 1 and now he is extremely active, he is always on the go. This little mover will not stop, right now he’s currently crawling all over the place and he refuses to let anyone stop him. While his tiny friends have been walking around for a few months now he is slowly deciding it is time and will go from one piece of furniture to the other.  The other day I was coming out of the restroom when he had decided to stand upright using a dining room chair and then turn to try walking towards the couch, he only made it two steps, saw me and sat down. I really think he could do it but he does not want to be seen or caught in the act.  Course it could also be with a mommy and four older siblings he simply doesn’t care to walk, even when we are all clapping for him. When did your little one begin walking? What did you do to encourage it? For those that are going to ask he turned one at the end of April.

Here he was in the church with me, he’s figured out he can really move when he climbs up the wall and uses it as a support system. Check that little man out!

I think this little man will be moving fast in about a month and he won’t be having to hold on to anything. What do you think?

Little Movers are the perfect diaper for on-the go babies – their Double Grip Strips and soft Velcro make for a comfy fit, while their LeakLock™ system provides mom with peace of mind! For a select time, Huggies® is offering coupons to anyone who visits Huggies.com/moments and uploads a photo or video of their baby’s best moves!

It is amazing how quickly your child grows up, from the moment you first start feeling them kick inside you to putting on that very first diaper and watching as they pass those milestones. What is your baby doing lately?

Walking with Dinosaurs The Movie

April 4, 2014 By · No Comments

Disclosure:  We were sent a copy of this movie to review. 

WWD_BD

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and BBC Earth Films have come together to create “Walking with Dinosaurs The Movie,” a cute family movie just in time for those Easter Baskets.  I imagine this would be a great movie to appear in an Easter Basket full of toy dinosaurs, chocolate covered eggs, etc. Take a step back in time with these friendly, and sometimes scary creatures as they deal with enemy herds and deal with coming into adulthood, to saving the herd from frozen over lakes that crack.

Walking With Dinosaurs The Movie, releasing on Blu-ray™ and DVD have been available since March 25.  Directed by Barry Cook (Mulan, Arthur Christmas) and Neil Nightingale (Meerkats: The Movie) and the writer behind the hit film Happy Feet, Walking With Dinosaurs The Movie features heart-warming performances from an incredible ensemble of Hollywood’s biggest stars including: John Leguizamo (Ice Age, Rio 2), Justin Long (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Dodgeball) and Karl Urban (Star Trek).

Listerine 21-Day Challenge Update

March 10, 2014 By · No Comments

I received the LISTERINE brand products from Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in the LISTERINE 21-Day Challenge. All thoughts and opinions in this post are my own.

We are back, which means it has already been 21 days since we have started our 21-day challenge with Listerine. First, we did it and now have a few that like it. Not everyone will like the taste of everything but some of us did. Those that did not can simply pick and choose but we definitely have a habit like the books state. 21 days of doing something consistently will help you build new habits.

SoccerBoy was already into the habit of mouthwash, brushing his teeth, etc. I actually normally have to tell him not to use mouth wash as often as he does because we run out that much faster, but he likes his mouth/teeth smelling/looking good. Can’t say I blame him. Sorry he did not let me get a picture of him, nor did I get one of Little A. Little A always does his teeth and we’ve used the kids Listerine mouthwash before just different colors, he liked this one more because it had Phinis and Ferb on it. He did NOT like the Listerine toothpaste which is fine because I have kid toothpaste for him but he wanted to try it out anyways.
