Conquer Enuresis with UnderJams #ConquerBedWetting

dielikidsI know you may all be wondering what I am doing writing about Enuresis (bed wetting) when my children are older, but my case is not a typical. I have three kids (pictured above)  so I may be what some consider as a veteran to the potty training game. All three of my kids got potty training down in their own way and at different ages. My youngest seemed to be the easiest. It was literally as if he woke up one day and was done with wearing diapers and never wet again. Who knows maybe it was a third times the charm type of deal. I like to say it’s his determined personality.

My daughter was also fairly easy to potty train. It took a few months but once it clicked with her she never let it go. She is my emotional child and even at the young age of two, she would be herself up over having an accident. She didn’t like feeling like a “failure” and that for my ex husband and I was our biggest struggle. Helping her understand it was not something she failed at.

Now my oldest….he’s the reason I wanted to write about this topic. He is now eleven years old and has been potty trained since he was about three. It was a difficult process going through potty training with him. I think part of the reason was we moved around so lot while he was younger and the constant change of home affected him in more ways than one. He used to have night terrors which would inevitably lead to regression. Then we would move and he would regress. We would go for periods of six months of completely dry, no accidents at night at all, and then he would wet the bed every night for two weeks.

This has been a consistent patter for a few years now. It’s not something he really likes to talk about much so I am here to be his voice. One of our biggest struggles was making the decision to continue keeping him in underwear at night or moving him back to a night time diaper of sorts to help him. It was something I didn’t want him to be ashamed of but I also didn’t want him to feel like he had failed. He is such a deep sleeper he would sleep through what the rest of us would wake up from. Whether it be the need to use the restroom or a storm outside. When he is out, he is out. I have also read that it may or may not be associated with bowel movements. How frequently your child takes them, or more importantly how infrequently.

Making the decision to go ahead and put him in some sort of night time protection was one I wouldn’t take back. Not only did it help his peace of mind but it helped mine as well. Know that he wont get down on himself for having an accident was a relief but it made morning times a little easier as we weren’t having to do laundry every morning on his bad weeks. I think the decision to use night time protection is not something we alone face. I am sure that many parents struggle with the idea of “taking a step backwards”. I don’t believe it should be looked at it like that anymore, I believe if it something that can help not only your child but yourself it could be a wonderful option. I wish they had Pampers UnderJams eight years ago when we first started going through this. One of the biggest things we ran in to while trying to find some type of protection for my son was finding them in his size. He is by no means a big kid, he is my lean machine as I call him but he is tall. The very first thing I noticed about UnderJams was that they start in a bigger size, size small/medium fits from 38-65 pounds and size large fits 58-65 pounds. UnderJams also offer these benefits:

  • Night wear leakage protection that features a NightLock ultra-absorbent core.
  • ComfortWear quiet, cloth-like materials for privacy.
  • Low waist so only your child knows they are wearing them!

With Pampers UnderJams you and your babies (totally not trying to confuse you all, it’s just that it doesn’t matter that he is eleven, he will forever be my baby and I still call him that every day) sleep with the peace of mind in knowing that even if enuresis were to happen…it is okay!

Also I did want to bring notice to the Pampers UnderJams site. They have a lot of useful tools, tips and educational information regarding enuresis there that might be helpful for you and your child in conquering bed wetting.

Have you and your child experienced enuresis? How did you guys conquer it together? I would love to hear your stories and thoughts on helping your children through this stage.

LG OLED at Best Buy #HintingSeason

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free

Print

There are so many things to love about the holidays. It always seems to slow down around this time of year. The air feels calmer, snow on the ground brings a sense of peace, spending time with loved one’s and friends. Enjoying amazing meals. It’s part of the reason the holiday season is my favorite my favorite time of the year. Now let’s not forget about holiday shopping season. This time of year seems to be all about exploring all of the new technology that is out there. The holidays seem to bring an abundance of deals, people and the latest and greatest tech. Whether it be computers, laptops, cell phones, cameras, it’s all so amazing it can sometimes be overwhelming in trying to decide all on your own which is the best fit for you and your family. One thing in particular that I’ve had my eye on lately is the OLED TV by LG.

I give you perfection….the ultimate display!

LG_UHD_smaller file
Your first kiss….baby’s first steps….the majesty of a desert sunset. There are some things in life that defy all explanation and have to be experienced in order to be believed. Such is the case with LG’s latest display technology. With deeper and richer colors, stunning contrast and ingeniously curved screens, it is unlike any technology you’ve ever seen, and it delivers a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination.

A little bit of information on the LG OLED TV:

  • LG OLED TV is only 0.21″ thick at its thinnest point!
  • LG OLED  TV has Infinite Contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. AND, LG’s exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors. This allows for picture quality that is truly spectacular.
  • Curved screen. The curve of the screen is designed so that your eyes are equally distant from all parts of the screen when sitting in front of the TV, providing a natural and immersive viewing experience. It’s an artful evolution of the traditional flat screen, designed for maximum impact.
  • Find content faster with webOS. The intuitive webOS user interface features a redesigned Launcher menu that pulls together all of your entertainment choices. webOS serves up entertainment** options that neatly organize your recent viewing history, what’s on live TV, and what you might like to watch next, while the integrated LG Store is ready to deliver the latest movies, TV shows and apps.
  • Voice Mate remote. Change the channel, open an app or find something new with a wave of your hand, the scroll of a wheel, or LG’s unique Voice Mate with natural speech recognition. And now you can control your compatible Blu-ray player, home theater system, set-top box and sound bar with just one remote. Spend less time navigating and searching for remotes and more time enjoying your entertainment (this is only available on certain models).

LG_OLED_Infill_smaller file 2
Now doesn’t the LG OLED sound ahhhhmazing? I personally think it would go amazing in my living room. One of my favorites features is the curved screen. I’ve never seen a TV with a curved screen before and the idea behind it is genius. Part of buying a big purchase for your home is learning all about the product and deciding if it will in fact be a good fit for your family. When making decisions like this I like to visit Best Buy and speak to knowledgeable staff that are actually trained and aware of the products that they carry. i have never been disappointing by a Best Buy employee when I’ve asked a technical question. And if the person who’s helping you doesn’t have the answer they always make sure to find someone who may.

You can bet this TV is on my wishlist this year. What are you Hinting at this season?

Enjoying Fall with Amazing Smells #SmellsClean

This post contains sponsored content.

SmellsClean1

You know how when you see a new place you immediately think “Oh my desk would look perfect here, the bed over there, a mirror right there, etc etc”. And once you set everything up how you visioned it it may not work. Yeah there has been a lot of that.  So to say that this last week has been filled with cleaning, moving, putting things together, decorating rooms, redecorating and doing it all over again would be an understatement. But it’s one of the things I love about moving. Putting your stamp on a new house and making it a home. Call it luck, or really maybe it’s just good timing on my part but I moved in to a new house last week, right when fall started so not only was it not insanely hot outside but I get to decorate the house with fall colors and immerse myself in delicious fall flavors. I may have mentioned one, or two…possibly twenty times now that my favorite season is fall. The change in the weather, the colors and how things just seem to slow down a little bit. But my absolute favorite part of this season are the smells! There is nothing that compares to the smell of fall flavored soups cooking all day and the aromas filling the house. Okay maybe cooking a fresh pumpkin or apple pie.

Since I have recently gone back to being a full time working parent and between that and sharing custody with my ex, time seems to be escaping me lately so unpacking has been a bit of a slower process then it used to be. In fact I didn’t get my kitchen completely set up until this weekend. It was driving me batty so having that done was a huge relief. But since most of my “kitchen” was located in an unmentionable amount of boxes the best way to help me relax and get into my fall groove was via candles. I may or may not have a slight obsession with candles. I have them in nearly every room, excluding the kids. Oh, maybe I can find some safe flame-less candles for my daughters room. I bet she would love that! In the mean time we’ve settled with an air freshener that OMG, it smells amazing.

One thing I’ve been doing lately is when I wake up to make my morning cup of coffee (literally it’s the first thing I do when I open my eyes) is I light my candle after preparing my coffee. Coffee first, then candle (Gotta remember safety folks, no lighting matches while half asleep). It’s a wonderful little pick me up in addition to the aroma of coffee. I’ve been switching back and forth between these amazing pumpkin melts and a macintosh apple candle. I just can’t make up my mind which I like more. They both smell good enough to eat. Sidenote…I love my new coffee mug. Owls, what can I say, it’s another obsession.

DSC_0006

Like I mentioned above, I may or may not have an obsession with candles. I have two in my bathroom right now. But here’s the thing. Not only does it let me bring in my favorite scents but it also eliminates any possible odors that may be lingering around. Three kids sharing a bathroom, yeah there’s definite odors that linger. So getting a room to smell clean in between cleaning days, I call that winning.

DSC_0016

Now I digress, candles, waxes and oils are not the only way to bring fall smells inside your home. Baking is another way. Delicious soups, treats, dinners and breads are all great reminders of fall. Bringing foliage inside is also a wonderful way to bring the outdoors in. People think dead/orange leaves and pine cones are just things to be tossed aside but make a centerpiece out of those two items with tall cream colored candles in the middle and you’ve got a gorgeous table arrangement or even a fireplace mantle display. Hey I may not be crafty but the ideas are there.

I’d love to hear what your ideas are for bring your favorite seasons smells into your home!

Walgreens Get a Shot, Give a Shot #GiveaShot #CollectiveBias

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

ff1924e2af76141ecb6169655cd79dc1
It’s a simple fact of life that along with the start of school comes the sickies. Especially for the younger ones. I have three kids going back to school this year. A fifth grader (OMG when did that happen), a 2nd grader and one into Kindergarten. My oldest has always had a weak immune system. He’s been hospitalized a few times for pneumonia, bronchitis and valley fever so I take immunizations and his well being very seriously. As I do with my other children but with him I take a little bit of extra caution. All three of my kids will be getting the flu shot. I know it’s a dreaded process for our children but I play the better safe than sorry rule and so far we’ve been one of the lucky families when it comes to the flu (knock on wood). Along with the flu I will making sure they are up to date on the rest of their immunizations. I may not be the typical mom who gets them all done at once because my kids are very sensitive to vaccines, and we have strong allergies in the family,  so we do no more than two at a time and it works for us.

Collage1

 In preparation for the coming school year I have already started to stock up on much needed supplies. When shopping for wellness items I try to think outside of the box and not just grab a bunch of over the counter medicines. I think what would my kids want if they were down for the count. Jr usually spends a lot of time sleeping while Mantha wants to cuddle. You may spend a little extra money thinking like a kid, at least I do. The first thing I think of is how they may not want to drink or eat so my first thought is to grab some water. Sure, not the most kid friendly form of hydration but it’s the simplest and best way to keep them hydrated when sick. You can purchase the little packets of flavoring and make ice pops with them. They think they’re getting a popsicle and you know they are keeping hydrated. I also came across something new while browsing Walgreens wellness section. Good for you lollipops! Yeah lollipops that aren’t just sugar. They had two varieties, one for sore throats and one chocked full of Vitamin C. I don’t know about you but I think these are fabulous!

Collage2

Naturally I chose to grab a bag of Vitamin C lollipops. I just couldn’t help myself. I give my kids their daily vitamins but the little extra boost in a kid friendly form is always helpful when your little one’s are sick. Reminds me of getting lollipops at the Dr’s office after a shot as a child. Mantha is notorious for getting really bad chapped lips, especially when sick so I picked up some fun new flavors for her. And at a dollar each you can simply dispose of them to not contaminate them after they are well. Tissues, you can never have a too many nice soft tissues for your wee ones noses. I love that I can pick up a few school supplies to a jump start on my back to school shopping as well.

8-1

With school now less then a month away I’ve already made appointments for my kids to get their immunizations and flu shots. Right now until October 14th, when you get a flu shot OR any other immunization at your local Walgreens, Walgreens will provide a life-saving vaccine through the United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign. In the Get a Shot, Give a Shot program everyone can help. It’s heartbreaking to know that not everyone is as fortunate to be able to afford healthcare, or even have healthcare as an option.

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 4.00.56 PMWalgreens will give up to THREE million vaccines to children that who cannot afford vaccines through the Get a Shot, Give a Shot program. All you need to do is get a shot and Walgreens will take care of the rest. Walgreens accepts most insurance plans and you can verify your coverage prior to your appointment if you are unsure. Even if you don’t have insurance, the services are priced lower than routine doctor office, urgent care, and emergency room. To learn more about this program click here.

Bring the Spring in with #FebrezeSpring Scents

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Febreze & Shespeaks.  All opinions are my own.

flowers2

I love when Spring finally rolls around the corner. Not only does it mean we finally get a break from the bone chilling cold (now no laughing East coasters) but the flowers start blooming, birds chirping, it’s time for renewal. I know for some spring time brings pollen, allergies, but for me it brings beautiful smells. Ever walk outside with the morning dew still on the grass and just breath a deep breath? A few of my favorite smells this time of year are nectarines, lilies, pineapple, melons and the smell right before it rains. 

Lucky for me I can now bring a few of those smells in the house with me with Frebreze’s new spring line, Spring Scents. With scents such as Sweet Pea Petals, Rain Air, Wildflower, Grapefruit Fizz and Nectar I can constantly be surrounded by a few of my favorite smells, if not all! This new line is not only offered via spray but oils, fabric refresher, wax melts, candles AND my personal favorite, vent clips for your car.

Febreze

One of our favorite things to do with the weather being so gorgeous is getting outside and enjoying the air, and the best place to do that is at the park! Not only do the kids get to run outside and have a blast but I get to watch their smiling faces. Nothing makes me happy more than seeing my children happy. This last weekend the kids met up with some friends to enjoy some park time and the cuteness was just too much. Okay not really but man was it cute. My youngest loves the slide and discovered it’s also fun going down it backwards. His giggles were echoing through the slide and I just had to snap a few pictures of it. Just try and tell me this is not adorable!

Fight Toxins with Seventh Generation #FightToxins

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Seventh Generation.
Did you know that we are exposed to over 300 toxins before we are even born!?! Three hundred! I had no idea, not only is that insane but it’s downright scary. I’ll be honest here, before I became a mom using non toxic products wasn’t even on my radar. I was naive in thinking if it didn’t involve those smelly harsh chemicals then it wouldn’t really work. Looking back I am not sure how I could have ever assumed such nonsense, and it’s alarming to think others may be uninformed as I once was. One of the first things I did was open my cleaning cabinet and go through  everything I was currently using and looked for alternative methods to clean my home with.
NYTIMES_SeventhGen copyI am sure many of you have heard of Seventh Generation right? If not here is a little background on this wonderful company.
Seventh Generation

We believe our products are healthy solutions for the air, surfaces, fabrics, pets and people within your home–and for the community and environment outside of it. As a pioneer in corporate responsibility, we want our products to make a difference—from their development through to their production, purchase, use, and disposal. We are always evaluating how to reduce their environmental impact, increase performance and safety, and create a more sustainable supply chain. We believe it is our responsibility to set a course for a more mindful way of doing business, where companies act as partners with other stakeholders to create a brighter future for the whole planet.

With the help of Seventh Generation and The Toxin Freedom Fighters, we are bringing awareness to congress on April 30, 2014 to make changes to the The Toxic Substances  Control Act (TSCA). The TSCA was originally passed in 1976, had has not been updated since that time. Under the TSCA tens of thousands of possibly harmful chemicals continue to be used in every day products without proper testing or disclosure by the company producing these products.  What The Toxin Freedom Fighters are trying to do is bring awareness and change to this act so that reform can happen, testing can be done on all these unknown chemicals so that we can protect the health of our families as well as to the environment.

TFF_100 percent dish1

Why is chemical reform imperative?

    • 85,000 synthetic chemicals have been introduced on to the market since the Toxic Substances Control Act was passed in 1976, the EPA has only required testing on less than 10% of those.
    • Some of these chemicals are found in toys and other children’s products, cleaning products, personal care items, furniture, electronics, food and beverage containers, building materials, fabrics, the interior of vehicles, building materials, and fabrics.
    • Scientists have linked exposure to toxic chemicals can lead to many health risks, such as cancer, alzheimer’s, learning disabilities, asthma, birth defects, and other reproductive problems.
    • The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) was passed in 1976, and unlike other major environmental laws, has never been updated.

What can you do to help? You can show your support by sharing and signing the Fight Toxins petition!  By signing you are showing your support behind this reform and fighting for a healthier future for our children. They only need 100 thousand signatures to bring this measure to congress. And if you feel but I am only one, that one (YOU) still counts! I hope that you will join me in support of this movement. As of the time I signed the petition it was over 81 thousand signatures, so we’re almost there!

Boys & Girls Club: Give the Gift of a Great Future Holiday #GreatFutures

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Boys and Girls Clubs of America. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.

unnamed

Every time around this year I try to remind my children that as much as toys are pushed through the media (thank you commercials) and through word of mouth at school, that getting toys is not the only thing the holidays are about. We need to remember that there are some children and families out there that our less fortunate then us. Some have nothing, a lot of them wont even get a present let alone a hot meal. One way I’ve recently learned to help others is through the Boys and Girls Club of America. The Boys & Girls Clubs of America is hosting their third annual Give the Gift of Great futures program. The Give the Gift of Great futures program will help inspire you and show us all what the true meaning of giving is. 

Be sure to check out their website for some great tips on how to inspire your children to give back to the community this season, these tips would work great for teachers to talk to their students as well!My favorite tip they mention is to acknowledge and celebrate ALL types of giving and it’s so true. Giving doesn’t always mean monetarily and people often forget that. 

Whether your child volunteers, donates allowance, helps a friend or neighbor, or is simply kind to a sibling, praise the effort or celebrate your child’s giving with a reward or a matching gift.

While there make sure to visit Kids Give Back contest where you can scroll through and see all the Boys and Girls Club BGCA giving back in their communities throughout the year and vote on one. You can also create some cute holiday gift tags with the Gift Tag Generator.

Preserving Your Memories with YesVideo #RememberWhen

Full Disclosure: I was compensated for my time on sharing the YesVideo holiday deadlines.  All opinions and family memories are 100% my own.

HolidayDiscandCaseThere always seems to be that one person that you just don’t know what to purchase for the holidays. If you’re one of the “lucky” few like me, then you have multiple people whom are equally “challenging” for gifting to. For starters I have my husband, my dad, my mom, the in-laws, heck, who am I kidding…it’s just about everyone I know! Not to mention I am just plain bad at buying gifts! However, the one thing I have found that never seems to disappoint is the fondness for family memories. And what captures those special family moments better than a photograph? Nothing. What is the best, most secure way to share those memories? A DVD- so you know they will always be there no matter what.

For me, the security of having those memories on DVD is constantly reassuring. The peace of mind offered with the knowledge that all of my family’s memories are safely stored on a DVD is priceless. I do not want to relive my worst fear again- losing all those precious moments to the pitfalls of modern technology. One such moment I didn’t lose because I learned the value of safe storage.

I have a video of my oldest riding a bike for the first time. This was before I had a video camera so I took it on my cell phone. Mind you this was five or so years ago so while the quality isn’t the greatest it’s still one of my favorite videos of him. He takes off and just doesn’t stop. He didn’t fall once! I may or may not have cried like the proud sappy mommy that I am. But it’s one of those memories I will never forget, therefore it holds a special place in my heart. And when my son is older and has kids of his own we can all look back and say “Remember when you learned how to ride a bike” and we’ll be able to pull up the video and watch it together as a family. Preserving those memories so I may pass them on to my children is important for me. Knowing they will make new memories with my future grandchildren while enjoying our family’s history make me teary eyed just  thinking about it. That’s how precious and close to my heart I hold these irreplaceable moments. But guarding my family’s past is not the only reason I have embraced DVD’s.

Like most people, I am very big on convenience. As a mom to three wee one’s being able to get multiple things done in one stop is a huge deal. It’s one of the many reasons I love Sam’s Club so much. I can get what would normally take me multiple shopping trips all done in one place. And that includes using YesVideos video transfer service. Yes indeed you read that right! YesVideo transfer service kiosks are conveniently (yay!) located inside Sam’s Club at the photo center! In addition to transferring all those wonderful family memories you have on film, they also transfer several different video formats and digital memory card data to DVD as well. These include VHS, VHS-C, S-VHS, Hi-8, 8mm videotape, Digital 8, MiniDV, BetaMax, 35mm slides prints, digital memory cards, USB drives, and data CD/DVDs.

YesVideo Sams

Make sure you get your transfer orders in before December 2nd, 2013 to get your order back to you before the holidays (we all know how hectic the holiday time is). That is their deadline for guaranteed holiday delivery. And if you love good savings like I do, then hurry up and place your order by November 30, 2013 because you will save 25% off your entire order with no coupon required!

Don’t worry If you’re not a Sam’s Club member because YesVideo also has kiosks inside of Walmart at the photo center. Don’t want to leave the house? No worries, YesVideo also has an iPhone and iPad app so you can watch your home movies on the go or share with family and friends!

For more information on YesVideo/Sam’s Club Online be sure to check out their Website, Blog, follow them on Twitter and course you can find them on Facebook.

Back to School Shopping with Old Navy

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Old Navy. The thought and opinions stated below are all mine.

Old Navy is my go to store when doing a massive clothes shopping. A huge relief for me is that I am almost always guaranteed to find something I like. To this day I have never walked out of an Old Navy empty handed. Not only do they have current fashions for both adults and kids BUT they also have amazing specials and sales all the time. Right now is the Back to School Sale where tons of clothes are just $10 and under. Oh yes you read that right, clothes for $10 and under. Do you have any idea how many outfits you can buy at that price!

Having three young kids all in school full time is not only going to be a first for me, but living on a single income can be hard at times, it can also be a little stressful when attempting to shop for them at the same time. Now my daughter, she loves shopping and we can do some damage together so I’m not worried about her but bringing the boys with me? Yeah they have zero interest in the magic of shopping. So I decided to make it a Mommy and daughter day filled with shopping, special treats and together time. We ended up going on tax free day which was an added bonus plus they were having a $5 tee and tank sale (score)! Even with our local Old Navy being under construction they handled the mass amount of guests with ease. So what did we manage to get? Let me break it down right quick.

For my daughter: Three t-shirts and a pair of jeans
For my oldest: Three t-shirts
For my youngest: Four t-shirts and a pair of jeans
In total we got 10 t-shirts and two pairs of jeans. The Avengers shirt was $10 and Darth Vader shirt was $7.99 the rest of the t-shirts were all from the $5 section, the jeans were on sale for $10 (that’s half off people) and since it was tax free weekend I saved there AND they had a spend $50 get 10% automatically taken off your total special running. All in all I only spent $70 and I saved $70. Having a big chunk of my kids wardrobes for school done and ready to go is a huge relief off my shoulders and one of many reasons that I love Old Navy. I mean seriously, where else can you get such cute, affordable and versatile clothes.

Old Navy’s Back to School sale is going on through August 14th. You can take a picture of your kiddos on the Old Navy runway (located in your local Old Navy) for a chance to appear on the Old Navy website and enter the Multiply Your Style Sweet Sweepstakes!

Boy Meets Girl

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by The Blogger Connection.

I love hoodies. I may or may not have at least six of them in my closet right now, and that’s not counting the one’s in my coat closet or my husbands that I steal borrow. Most of my hoodies are back from my punk rock days so they’ve seen better days. Still totally wearable but a little rough around the edges. Finding an edgy, stylish yet contemporary look is not as easy as you would think. Until now. Stacy Igel, the designer behind Boy Meets Girl captures the innocent spark between a boy and girl perfectly with these vintage cameos. The rest is up to you. You can personalize the Boy Meets Girl hoodies however you like, whether it be a monogram of your initials or you wedding date. It can even be embroidered on to the cozy hooded sweatshirts.


Some fun examples for Personalized Hoodies:

• Wedding/Bridal Gifts….Groom and Bride or Shakle and Chain (haha I added that one)

Or if you slightly twisted like myself and have not so nice but totally fitting nicknames for your significant others you could use those. I would share our pet names but I’ll keep this pg so I don’t scare anyone. But seriously how cute is this hoodie? It has all the classic elements to a hoodie AND with the boy and girl silhouette. My favorite is the black and pink because well, they’re my favorite colors.
