My Top christmas gifts for kids

 

It’s that time of year again, Christmas time!! I don’t know about you, but 2017 has FLOWN by! Can you believe we are at another Christmas?

 

I love the Christmas season and what it brings, but one thing is for sure it can get stressing trying to figure out what to buy my children for the holidays.

 

Now my daughter is simple. She LOVES princesses, Barbies, and ponies, but my oldest son, is so hard to buy for.

 

You see my son is 6 years old and while he loves to play, his attention isn’t held by toys. He loves to draw, crafts, ride bikes, and build things. He is very hands on so his attention isn’t held with most toys but rather with things that will keep him engaged for awhile.

 

My two year old is simple. If it looks or sounds like a truck, he is good!

 

For the last few weeks I have been thinking of things that would make my children happy.

 

do i give in to hype toys?

 

Lucky for me, my children are not into “hype” toys. They do not desire the latest and hottest thing.

 

When I saw the Fingerling Monkey toy (or whatever it’s called) online, I called my kids over and showed it to them asking if they liked it. All 3 said no!! Sweet!!

 

I don’t want my children growing up wanting something just because everyone else has one. I want them to develop their own likes and know what they like and want.

4 Reasons Why You NEED Amazon Prime!

(This post may contain affiliate links, please click here to read our full disclosure!)

amazon

 

 

 

Today I want to talk to you about one of my most favorite things! AMAZON PRIME! For the last couple of years my husband and I have had an amazon prime account. I must say, it has been one of our best purchases. We are constantly making purchases on Amazon.

 

I must admit, before I became an Amazon Prime user, I thought it was only for shipping. When I visited amazon.com it would always suggest I become a member for free shipping. at $99 for the year, I wasn’t so interested. In my mind I didn’t shop too much on Amazon, so why would I need to spend my hard earned money for free shipping, no thanks!

 

It wasn’t until one year, Amazon ran a special. $49 for 12 months of Amazon Prime. My husband suggested we try it out! I was a little skeptical, but agreed to it since it was half the price.

 

My world changed FOREVER!!

 

My  husband told me that Amazon Prime was not only for free shipping to look more into it. And let me tell you, this is when the fun began!

menstrual cup

I no longer dread my period!!! why? Two words…

Menstrual cup. Sorry guys TMI!

 

Since I started my cycle, I have dreaded it each month! I mean what girl hasn’t!??

Pads are miserable, dirty, and hot during the summer (and all the time) and well, tampons aren’t that better!

Plus on top of it all, my skin is extra sensitive to tampons and pads which makes for a miserable few days!

 

When I got pregnant with my first child, it was so nice not having a cycle! I loved going month to month without worrying about when that time of month was!

 

Then to make things BETTER, while nursing my son, I didn’t have a cycle!! So no cycle for almost 2 years!!!!

 

Repeat this process two more times with two more kids and now we come to present time!

 

A year ago I finished nursing my son and sure enough, the next month my cycle came back! Talk about a downer! I quickly googled alternatives to tampons/pads and that’s when I discovered the menstrual cup!

I went to amazon and read the reviews and was quickly hooked! I ordered mine for around $32. I was so excited about it that I couldn’t wait for my next cycle. (Weird I know!)

 

The menstrual cup I went with was the the Diva Cup . The reason I went with this cup was basically because of the reviews! They all sold me!

How to Keep Your Phone Dry While At the Pool!

phone dry

A few years ago, my husband was having such a hard time reaching me on my phone.

He would call and I wouldn’t answer which would lead to 5 million text messages or a few missed Voxers (It’s a walkie talkie app, check it out!).

When I would finally get to my messages, my husband would be in a semi panic because he couldn’t reach me. He would always stress how I need to be by my phone or have it on me in case of an emergency.

 

Now I have 3 little ones, so my phone is usually the last thing on my mind! But I know he was right! (He always is…. bonus wife points!!)

 

THE BEST phone case ever…
