Making Milk More Delicious with MilkSplash

milksplash1

Do your kids enjoy milk? Like most children I know, my children are obsessed with milk.  My youngest son has always loved it and he always asks me every day if he can have some choc choc.  That is his word for chocolate milk.  He likes plain milk if we do not have chocolate syrup but he prefers choc choc.  Well, choc choc is FULL of sugar.  When I started trying to become more healthy I looked up the calories for the syrup and milk and it was over 300 calories for one cup of milk.  I told my husband that we had to cut back.  So when we were … [Read more...]

Well Beginnings Diapers

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Well Beginnings. #WellBeginnings As as newly minted stay at home mom (does 10 months count as newly minted), I am always on diaper duty.  My husband is rarely home while the kids are awake so he is lucky enough to get out of that chore.  Moriah is my third baby and after three I can tell you all there is to know about diapers.  My second child didn't potty train until he was three.  I have been through my fair share of brands, sizes, and shapes.  All three of my children were huge when they were … [Read more...]

Dots on Tots Organic Hat Review

dots3

As a Scout mom I have learned to pick my battles when it comes to protecting my older son outside.  When he was younger at camping events I would spend half the time asking him to zip his jacket, pull his hood up, wear his hat correctly, put his gloves back on, and so on and so forth.  Now that he is older it is to the point that if he has his shoes and jacket on I was like, eh, he will be fine.  Now that I have two little ones though the battle has started over.  I want to protect them from the rainy nasty winter weather in Alabama especially since … [Read more...]

Farming Simulator XBox 360 Video Game Review

farming3

Like many other people I used to play a farming simulator on Facebook. I could not get enough of it.  I was good at it.  My son always wanted to help. He wanted to plow the plots and plant.  What he liked the best though was the store.  He loves money in real life so I am not surprised.  That is why I was sure that he would love to play a game of his own without me having to let him on the computer all the time.  Farming Simulator is enriched with outstanding content and many new features, challenging you to take on the role of a modern day farmer.  … [Read more...]

The first (and hardest) part is sorting through them.  It’s easiest to gather all of them together into a huge pile and then sort into four smaller piles: dump, keep, donate, and sell. Go through the puzzles and make sure all of the pieces are … [Read more...]

Having Fun with our Massbricks Review

massbricks2

My three year old's new favorite word is 'hastle'.  That is castle with a h in case you werent sure. He loves building things.  Luckily we are a family of builders. My older son will patiently sit with him and build domino towers and then crash them down! He thinks he is hilarious.  We were sent a 31 piece set of Massbricks recently and my boys are in love.  These blocks were supposed to be for my younger son but my 11 year old wants them.  Even my 5 year old cousin (pictured below) wanted to take them home with him. The blocks are large which … [Read more...]
