Janiebee Nap Mat: Maggie Mae

Last year I ordered my daughter a Janiebee Nap Mat in the “Splendor” pattern. We immediately fell in love with the quality and decided to order a SECOND nap mat especially for grandma’s house! This time we ordered a new design called “Maggie Mae”. The Maggie Mae shabby chic design is a beautiful blue and pink floral print with geometrics and tulip accent pieces. The pink, orange, yellow, white, melon and aqua fabrics are completely adorable and match my daughter’s personality perfectly! This mat is approximately 21 inches wide and 53 inches long, so my daughter can use this for quite a few years. The minky pillow and built in blanket are my daughter’s favorite. They are so warm and cozy which makes her super excited to lay down for her naps or movie times. One of my favorite thing about Janiebee nap mats as a mom, is that they machine washable. I don’t mind her dragging it everywhere she goes because I can just toss it in the wash and it is good to go! These mats are also customizable! I was able to get Kinsley’s name embroidered on the front of the mat so she can take it back and forth to school if needed. Once again, Janiebee has completely blown me away!  I can’t wait to see what other patterns and prints Janiebee Nap Mats will release next!

Order the Maggie Mae mat today!

First up on the agenda was Littlest Pet Shop: Pet Stars (per my daughter’s request)! My daughter has always been a huge Littlest Pet Shop fan, so it was no surprise that she wanted to watch this DVD first.

Next up for our movie night, was Transformers Rescue Bots: Protect and Explore. My daughter regularly watches Transformers Rescue Bots with her cousins, so she was really excited to pop this DVD in! These episodes were very fast pace and my daughter was excited to see how the Bots would solve the problem! Before I knew it she was talking to the TV and helping them on their adventures.

DVD Excerpt: When a mysterious iceberg is spotted off the coast of Griffin Rock, it brings both danger and the interest of an old nemesis. On a nature hike, the Rescue Bots team will have to battle escaped snakes.

Last, but definitely not least was My Little Pony Friendship Is Magical: Exploring The Crystal Empire. We are huge My Little Pony fans, so I was extremely excited about this DVD in particular.

BOOM KidzControl™ Volume Limit Headset Headphones from Kidz Gear

I recently purchased my daughter a learning app that requires her to repeat songs and words, so she needed a headset that would allow the app to hear what she was saying. These BOOM KidzControl™ volume limit headset headphones from Kidz Gear are perfect! They are made exactly like the original award-winning Kidz Gear KidzControl headphones, except these have a Boom Mic built in. The Boom mic allows my daughter to easily talk back and forth with her app. I also really like how these headphones have padding around the ear pieces as well as built in volume limit controls.  On the wire there is a small piece that allows me to select the MAX volume so that no matter how much she turns up her iPod, the volume will never go over what I have set. My daughter immediately fell in love with these headphones. The headpiece is easily adjustable so they aren’t constantly falling off, and the attatched mic is able to bend so she is comfortable talking into it. Although I ordered these specifically for her learning app, my daughter has been using these headphones for all of her apps as well as movies and music. These are definitely mom and toddler approved!

Zollipops: The After You Eat Treat™

My daughter recently had her second dentist appointment, and unfortunatly this one didn’t go as smooth as her first one. The dentist informed me that even though we brush her teeth everyday,  Kinsley had a small cavity forming on one of her front teeth. I immediately purchased some floss picks and upped her brushes to three times a day, but I wanted to go a step further and find another way for Kinsley’s mouth to stay healthy. That’s when I discovered Zollipops! Invented by 11 year old Alina Morse, Zollipops are lollipops that are meant to reduce tooth decay, stop dry mouth, and create a healthier mouth overall! Not only are Zollipops sugar free, gluten free, vegan and kosher, but they are also packed with Xylitol, Erythritol, Stevia and other natural ingredients. Zollipops work by balancing the pH levels in our mouths which helps control bacteria. After learning a bit about Zollipops, I knew I had to get some for Kinsley! I mean, if it can help prevent her cavities from forming it was worth a shot! Of course these were immidiatly a huge hit! A sucker for breakfast? HECK YEAH! Kinsley absolutely loved the flavors (strawberry, orange, grape, pineapple, raspberry and cherry) and was extremely happy to get a sucker after each meal (the package says she can have up to 3 a day). We made it a fun routine so that Kinsley was more excited about taking care of  her teeth. Eat, brush, sucker, repeat! I can’t wait for her next dentist appointment to see if Zollipops have helped to stop Kinsley’s forming cavity in its tracks! Such a genius product that kids of all ages can benefit from!

ABC Mouse

I have recently been seeing a lot of advertisement for the learning website ABCmouse. I was unsure if paying for a subscription would be worth it, or even if my daughter Kinsley would benefit from it since she is only two. I finally gave in and figured it couldn’t hurt to try. ABCmouse currently offers a 30-day free trial and a monthly subscription starting at $7.95 a month. When I first signed my daughter up for ABCmouse, I had to fill out a good bit of info. Of course there was the basic parent info and then from that point on, everything was about my daughter. I had to input her age, her grade level, and a few other little details to customize her account.Then I let her create her own avatar (completely customizable) and she was able to choose a fish and a hamster to keep in her ABCmouse “room”. Once I set up her profile, Kinsley had to complete an 11 section assessment (doesn’t have to be completed all at once). This assessment allowed ABCmouse to provide Kinsley with a personalized lesson plan based on what she already knows and what she is struggling with.  20161228_181841

After her initial assessment Kinsley was able to play games, watch videos and listen to songs all based around her lesson plan. I downloaded the ABCmouse app on her iPad, so she was able to play and learn wherever we went. The lessons were extremely fun, age-appropriate, and very engaging. Her very first lesson was based around recognizing the letter A. First, she had to sing a song about the letter A and things that start with A. Then, she had to complete a letter A puzzle. After that she had to watch a short cartoon video about the letter A, and then she had to trace it with her finger! She earned tickets which each activity she successfully completed which made her  more excited to complete more lessons! She can then take those tickets and purchase things for her ABCmouse “room” and her two ABCmouse pets! After the very first lesson, Kinsley could successfully point out the letter A out of 26 mixed up letter cards! I was extremely impressed.PicMonkey Collage.jpg

I really love that as a parent, I can track her progress in the parent portal. I can see how many lessons she has completed, how many tickets she has earned, and how much progress she is making. Every so often she completes little tests to make sure she is grasping the lessons and on the right track. As she grows and learns, ABCmouse will grow with her. ABCmouse is constantly adding new lesson plans so my daughter will continue to be on track with the rest of her peers. To be honest, I believe she could test AHEAD of her peers if we continue to use ABCmouse. Overall I found ABCmouse to be extremely user-friendly and my daughter is having so much fun with her lessons! This is one of the best things I could’ve done for my daughter!

Juicy! Wow Cup™

Since my daughter is getting older, I wanted to introduce her to adult cups. The transition from sippy cup to adult cup was FAR from easy. There were lots of spills, lots of crying and lots of frustration! Juicy! Wow Cup™ had made the transition to adult cups MUCH easier! The 360 Uni-Flow™ drinking edge on these cups allow my daughter to pick up the cup and drink from anywhere along the rim just like an adult cup. Once my daughter is finished drinking, the 360 Uni-Flow™  drinking edge automatically seals itself back shut! When not in use, the Juicy! Wow Cup™ is 100% leak free, so there are no spills to be cleaned! The cups have a secure-lock thread system so there is no way my daughter can remove the lid herself and cause a mess.  The cup is also made of  food-grade plastic materials and is BPA & Phthalate free, so it is completely safe for my daughter to use. I wish I would have found these cups sooner because they are a lifesaver!

Sleeping Cutie Tea Party Dress from Great Pretenders

My daughter LOVES to play dress up, so it was no surprise to me when she fell in love with this Sleeping Cutie Tea Party Dress from Great Pretenders! Great Pretenders has a HUGE line of dress up clothes,accessories, and toys for both genders and all ages! This specific Sleeping Cutie Tea Party Dress fits 5/6, however my two year old daughter is able to wear it with a little adjusting. It features satin off the shoulder sleeves and sparkling elastic gold straps. It also has an elastic waist so my daughter is able to continue wearing it as she grows. I find that this brand is made of a higher quality than a lot of the other dress up clothes my daughter currently owns. There is much more detailing on this dress and so far it is much more durable than other brands. I also find that it is much softer and doesn’t have any of that “itchy” material that seems to bother my daughter on her other dresses. Since she has put it on this afternoon, my daughter has refused to take it off. I can’t wait to expand her collection with more Great Pretenders dresses!

Why Freshly Picked Moccasins?

In 2014 I watched Susan Petersen, a stay-at-home mom, appear on ABC’s Shark Tank.  I instantly fell in love with not only her products, but her story as well! Susan explained that when her son Gus was born, she began hand sewing leather moccasins and selling them online.  After the Shark Tank episode ended, I immidiatly went online and ordered my first pair of Freshly Picked Moccasins. It is safe to say that I have been a huge fan since the beginning. asda.png

So, why should you buy Freshly Picked Moccasins?

Well, that’s easy. Freshly Picked makes the highest quality moccasins on the market! Each moccasin is made with durable, wear-tested leather which is perfect for both babies AND toddlers. The elastic opening on all of their soft sole moccasins makes getting dressed and undressed a breeze (my two year old can do it herself)! The elastic back also helps keep the moccs in place so that they are not constantly falling off.  Not only is this brand durable, but they are (in my opinion) some of the cutest shoes on the market! The styles are always so fresh and current which always makes it easy to find exactly what I am looking for.  Their easy-to-read size chart guarantees that I will purchase the correct size every time without needing to exchange them for another size.

Ever since our first pair of Freshly Picked Moccasins (Merci to be more specific), my family and I have been hooked. I am still to this day constantly expanding our collection! I mean, Kinsley can never have “too many” pairs of Freshly Picked Moccasins right?  This brand is not only mom-approved for ease and durability, but they’re toddler approved for comfort and style! My daughter loves when we get new shoes in the mail. I can’t wait to see what style the brand releases next! So when you ask me why I pick Freshly Picked, my answer is simple….

Because they are PERFECT!

Happy Little Bodies from Natralia

Finding good products for children with eczema can be extremely hard, which is why I am super excited to share these Happy Little Bodies products with my followers! Natralia offers three Happy Little Bodies products which include a relief cream, a body wash, and a moisturizing lotion. The relief cream works similar to a hydrocortisone cream. It soothes itchy flare-ups using all natural ingredients. It is hypoallergenic, steroid-free, and gentle enough for newborns. The body wash acts as a soap-free 2-in-1 wash and shampoo. It is free from SLS, paraffin, coal, or pine tar. It is also ph-balanced for children and babies. The moisturizing lotion is a skin protectant that has a 24-hour moisture lock. It is gentle enough for daily use and leaves skin feeling soft. I was happy to find that these products were not scented. Harsh fragrances sometimes irritate my daughter’s skin even worse than the eczema. So far, we really love these products. The quick relief and non-greasy applications are fantastic!
