Calling all Moms of Pacifier Baby’s You need WubbaNub

Ok all when it comes to WubbaNub I could actually write for hours.  Of course, I will not do that to you, but I will start with if you have a baby that loves Pacifiers then don’t wait don’t even read the rest of this review (come back) just head to WubbaNub and start buying.

We first discovered these years ago when baby boy was actually a baby.  They quickly became a must have in our house.  Not only were they a great pacifier that even the doctors recommended they have cute animals on them that no kids can resist.

Now for why they became a must have.  It was not the pacifier on them it was not the animals (of course we loved that) It was how much better they made our life.

Along with the cute animals they even have some of our favorite sports teams now, part of WubbaNub’s Major League Baseball* (MLB) Collection. New York Yankees™ bearSan Francisco Giants Bear™ and so many more.  Your little one can show their team spirit.  Now I do have to say Hubby is strongly suggesting you make the San Diego Padres.  Lol I love that our littles can now help cheer on their favorite teams.

Why You Need WubbaNub

First when your little ones throw this little guy.  Guess what it does not go rolling into the worst possible places.  I remember before we had the WubbaNub anywhere we went it would go flying out of the strollers and roll for what seemed like forever.  Into the road, under tables at the restaurant, not to mention the ones that we could just never find again lol.  These little WubbaNubs stay right where they land.

Second when your little ones is sleeping you are not going to have to get up 100 times a night to re insert the pacifier.  These little guys help them stay right where you put the.  Not to mention they also help with motor skills.  Your little one will be able to grab this easily and put it back into their own mouth.  They will be doing it a lot faster then if it is just the pacifier. We keep a few in his bed so even when he rolled over there was a quick one to grab for himself.

Third cleaning could not be easier when the animal or pacifier needed a good cleaning, we just tossed it on the top rack of the dishwasher.  Quick easy and came out perfect

Fourth when it was time to get rid of on the pacifiers, we had a rule when he bit through them, the pacifier had to go.  Yet the animal he fell in love with did not.  We would cut the pacifier free and bam he still had his best friends to comfort him

These WubbaNubs are perfect for your pacifier loving baby and they are a must in any household.  Do not miss out on them.

Think Outside The Box with Tinkering Labs

 

My boys love to build things.  When we got the chance to check out Tinkering Labs  they were so excited. If you are anything like me we love summer, but having a few toys that keep their mind busy and learning is a must. 

When we first opened the box I though ohh no how on earth will they be able to do this.  Of course the boys did not think this at all, they went right to work on it.  They had all the pieces and direction ready to go and my nephew was right there to help step by step. They knew exactly what to do.

Tinkering Labs is a really out-of-the-box company on the forefront of getting kids engaged in STEM and inspiring invention!

Tinkering Labs’ Electric Motors Catalyst (EMC) is for kids 8+ (but many kids 6+ use it, depends on the child) and focuses on challenging their problem-solving capabilities and creativity and empowers them with invention and project-based learning.

This set comes with everything you need including the screw driver. I love that they can make 16 things with this one kit.  No more one and done they can keep on building and learning for a long time.  My nephew went right for it and had a blast he even helped my son build.

 

I love that Tinkering Labs is a great STEM toy for my boys.  It not only had them thinking, but they were working as a team helping each other. If you are looking for a fantastic Summer Fun item this year then they are a must.  Get those brains and hands working and see what your kids can build.

Tips To Being A More Proactive Parent

As parents, we want to make the most of our day, especially if we are attempting to work from home with a business, be there for a child as well as all the home necessities that need to get accomplished day to day. Although there are days we feel as if we haven’t gotten anything finished, I have a few tips to help out the tired, exhausted Mama who wants to try to be a more proactive parent. It’s easier than you think! 

Image: iMedX

  1. Keep One Foot In The Working World – If you have young children, you’re hopefully able to get a few hours or so throughout the day to check your email or get some work done while your child naps. A neighbor of mine is a medical transcriptionist which she loves because she loves helping patients and hospitals transcribe their medical records as well as provide a steady income for her family, all while working from home. She earned her training from a company local to her in the Atlanta area called iMedX. With continuously growing technological capabilities, iMedX offers high value revenue cycle management solutions, data analytics, continued education and training opportunities and coding services. It’s leading-edge technology, best in class quality and commitment to service excellence allows them to focus on positive results and success for thousands of healthcare clients globally. They a company you’ll love to work plus keep you with a steady income, helping large or smaller healthcare companies and know you are making a difference with patients records.

 

  1. Learn To Delegate – If your children are older, make sure that you are not putting all the home essentials on your plate. I have a rule where my children can play but if they want to move onto something else, they need to clean up what they are doing and then move onto the next thing. This way, a room is not left a total disaster. If your kids are younger, role model and help them put away their toys so they know where they go. This will help teach them the importance of keeping their things organized, neat and easier to play with and find later. You can also have our child help set the table, make simple lunches, help prep meals or get things ready for school the next day. Believe me, they’ll love the responsibility and helping them feel like a big grown up like you! 

 

  1. Move Your Needs To The Top Of The To Do List – As a parent it’s super simple to never put yourself first and always put others before you. When was the last time you put yourself first by going out for lunch with your girlfriends, getting a new outfit that made you feel good about yourself or finally setting up that date night with your spouse to enjoy time without the kids for once. If you can’t think of it, then I’d sugest adjusting your priorities to put yourself at the top for once. Remember, positive mental health and self care are truly key to investing in yourself and being a happy parent- especially when you are with your kids all the time. 

 

  1. It Won’t Always Feel Positive – While you may hear several people tell how lucky you are that you get to stay home all day, we all know that it’s not sitting around in your pajamas eating a tub of ice cream while your kids play independently with one another has. It’s far from that but being organized, having a set schedule so your kids know what is coming throughout the day to help avoid meltdowns, and doing your best is all it really takes. Of course every day is different, you may have times you feel defeated by the endless laundry basket, the dirty dishes and the never ending sweeping of the floors but you’re also able to make memories with your kids, provide a loving home and really making yourself the best version you can be. 

 

There are several other tips to being a more proactive parent to yourself, your spouse and your kids but I think these four are essential to making sure you stay true to yourself, keep positive, do your best and delegate the chores to keep yourself sane. As parents, we truly do our best to give our kids a life we want them to be proud of but just know you can’t do it all some days and that’s perfectly ok. I can’t wait to hear what other tips you have to share that have helped you be your best in the comments below. 

Back To School With Crayola Take Note

Its that time of year again.  We are starting our Back To School shopping.  Every year it seems like the list gets longer and longer.  There is so much that the kids and teachers need, it’s nice to get our shopping done in stages.  This year Crayola Take Note has made it so much easier.

When this box showed up I was no excited going threw everything and noticed that they had almost everything that was on our teachers list this year.  I know Dry-Erase markers are a #1 on teachers list.  They use so many of these during the year, not to mention the kids using them and crushing the tips.

If you are looking for affordable quality products for school this year, you will not have to look any farther.  One of the ones I would have so wished they had when I was in college was the Erasable Highlighters.   When class would start i would read and re read the books and I was always highlighting.  Just to get to the next paragraph and realize that is what needed to be highlighted not the ones I already did.  Some of my books were a mess lol.  Even better they come in Pastel.

Take Note from Crayola has everything your kids are going to need for success this year.  Make sure to stock up and be ready for the whole year.

The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales on DVD Giveaway

Are you looking for some great Tales for your kids.  I love reading to my kids but there are days that they want tale after tale and I can’t read to them all day.  Now they have come out with a fantastic dvd that will tell your kids family friendly tales that they are going to love.  The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales.

 

Los Angeles, CA – Who’s afraid of the big bad… fox? The hilarious and delightful animated film The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales will be released on Blu-ray™ and DVD on July 16 by GKIDS and Shout! Factory.
From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated Ernest & Celestine comes another hilarious heartwarming tale of animal misfits destined to become a classic.
The countryside isn’t always as calm and peaceful as it’s made out to be, and the animals on this farm are particularly agitated: a fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. If you think life in the country is a walk in the park, think again! Directors Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert adapt Renner’s own acclaimed graphic novel into a delirious, delightful triptych of interlocking stories, with a pacing and visual spontaneity that harkens back to classic Looney Tunes shorts and slapstick two-reelers. But underneath the gags (and there are plenty of them), the three stories offer a sensitive and beautiful portrayal of family, and the anxieties of modern life.
Featuring a host of voices from the world of British comedy, including Bill Bailey, Adrian Edmondson, Justin Edwards, Matthew Goode, Celia Imrie, Phill Jupitus, and Giles New, The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales is sure to delight.
The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales has English and French tracks, and a run time of 81 minutes. Special features include an Interview with the Directors, The Making Of The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales, the Q&A at New York Int’l Children’s Film Festival, an English Dub Featurette, and trailers.
