Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. As I have mentioned before, there were things we did not think about needing when Broxton was a baby. Sure, a pain reliever / fever reducer was a given, but I did not think about medicines for constipation and what not... Until it was the middle of the night and you could tell that all was needed was a good potty.  I know I can not be the only parent out there running to a store in the middle of the night to try and buy whatever will make my little one feel better... Am I?  Well, this time around, I keep saying I plan on being more prepared... that includes having Mommy's Bliss Constipation Ease on hand ready to go!  While I hope I don't have to deal with it, if it is something that comes up, I want to be ready! I was…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. If you are looking for an awesome diaper bag, for you or someone else, you need to look at the Skip Hop Forma Diaper Bag!  With Broxton, I had a few different ones, but this one is just the "mack daddy" of them all, as my dad would say.  Here we are in 2015 and he LOVES using that phrase- STILL.  So, let me tell you about this bad boy! 
I was sent the black one ( black goes with EVERYTHING, if you are one to try and match your diaper bag with your clothing or what not) and I love that the interior gives you a spark of color!   First up, besides the bag just looking awesome, it actually comes with 2 storage cubes for the front pocket.  You can use the one bag with the mesh cover to pack a change of clothing.  The ot…

All opinions are mine alone. #Save4Summer #CollectiveBias .  Summertime normally means family vacations (or staycations) fun and all sorts of "non-school" events if you have a child or are a teacher.   We had plans to go and do, until we were surprised with the news of our little girl headed this way.  Needless to say, summer plans changed and instead of planning trips to go and do things, we were planning on getting a nursery ready and working on a budget.  One budget we needed to focus on?  Our cell phone plans!  I don't know about you, but there are so many out there, it is hard to choose!  You first have to figure out the p…

Now, I want to tell you about a few other items they have.  I also want to host a giveaway for you to win something of your own!  I don't know what you thought about the "Miracle" line that Hallmark has (remember, I showed you the picture frame that they sent me)  well, there are a few other items that might grab your attention. Up first : Little Miracle Baby Memory Book.   This book is being sold for $39.95.  While this is a bit more in the upper price range for other baby books I have seen, it really looks to be worth it. With Broxtons book, I ended up not keeping up with it, I know... HORRIBLE mom, I know, I…

When looking for a great baby gift, there are many ways you can go about doing it.  You can look at what they registered for, you can just get what you want or you can go to Hallmark and you can purchase the most adorable and loving baby gifts around!   When I was younger, I was a frequent Hallmark shopper, you know, back in the days of hanging out at the mall on the weekend.  Now, the mall days are few and far between, but being pregnant and stepping into a Hallmark brought all those mushy feelings up!  Have you seen the assortment of baby gifts?  Getting to work with Hallmark is always wonderful and when I was sent a few things from their baby gifts line, I was so excited.  I am not sure who was more excited about the Noah…

It's Never Too Early To Talk Oral Hygiene - @BabyBuddyBear #BringingHomeBaby #BabyEvent

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. It is NEVER too early to start practicing great oral hygiene.  I remember when Broxton was born, I was living in South Georgia and was trying to read everything I could online.  One website mentioned "Tooth Tissues" and I knew that was something I really needed for Broxton.  It was talking about getting these wipes and basically wiping his gums.  Of course, I headed to the store in Atlanta that carried them on my next trip up to see friends!   I had the little brush that you put on your finger to rub his gums too, but again, I had no clue there were different products for different ages.  I just sort of rolled with the flow of things. 
Now, I know that there are products for nearly any and every thing you can think…

I think I am pretty lucky when we get invited to a kids birthday party that has a theme... I try and buy a gift that the child will love and then if the theme is a show that is available on DVD, I try and grab a DVD to add in there as well.  I know Broxton likes to wind down at the end of the day with an episode of one of his favorite shows and since he doesn't have cable in his room, these DVD's are perfect for him!  If you have a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Fan, make sure you see the new releases headed out soon! 
Pulverizer Power - Available June 9th Return to NYC - Available June 14th. Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo find themselves facing a new kind of obstacle--the ultimate fanboy--in Teenage Mutant…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. When Broxton was born, he was not a fan of shoes. We tried a few different kinds, but nothing would work.  He was constantly taking them off.  Socks were okay, shoes... not so much.  That was until we tried pediped.

Have you thought about what you are buying for Fathers Day this year?  It is next month and I already know what we are doing... As I have mentioned before, Marc is a fan of The Wonder Years.  It was cheaper to buy the entire collection at once, but not everyone wants to fork over that much money at once, so they also make them available for individual season purchase.  Season Three has recently become available, so that is what he is getting!   In THE WONDER YEARS: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON, the newest retail installment of the fan-favorite series, the education of Kevin Arnold continues.  He gets his first French kiss during an otherwise forgettable family vacation at the beach, and once back in school, he goes to his first…

We were very fortunate that Broxton had no medical issues when he was born.  I know other people are not like us, but we can all be thankful for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.  We don't have much money laying around, but you can bet when we are asked for a donation to Children's, we will always donate what we can.  The other day, I was asked to donate and of course I said yes.  Why not?  Who knows when you or a friend might need Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. 

That being said, I was thrilled to know that Walmart and Pampers have teamed up to donate $200,000 in June!!!   Two companies I love to support, helping whe…
