Nuby Bath Crayons


We love our bath toys! It is the one time that the little ones can be totally naked without getting in trouble for taking their diapers or pull ups off. I don't mind them drawing on the walls, with the Nuby Bath Crayons, or on themselves either. Usually my 3 year old is colored all over. She calls her drawings, her tattoos. She wants tattoos just like Mommy.


Let your child take their creativity from the playroom, into the bathroom! This set comes with blue, yellow, green, purple and red. Each bath crayon has a plastic holder around its outside. Easy for those little hands to hold. We love these bath crayons. They are so easy to wash off the walls and or skin.


You can purchase this 5pk of bath crayons for $6.78 from Amazon

3 Basket Laundry Cart

I am sure that you all are tired of hearing about my big family. However, with such a big family, my laundry room looks like a hurricane hit it! 10 People living in 1 house makes for lots of laundry! Anyway, I have so many laundry baskets and bottles of detergent. Having lots of baskets takes up so much room. But with this metal rolling cart, it has 3 bins for holding 3 loads of laundry at once. Definitely conserves the room. I can totally handle that.

This cart was easy to build. Took my oldest son around 10 min, tops. I love that it has rollers. I can pull it towards the washer, to empty, and then roll back towards the wall.

Monkey Nuby Snoozies with Binkie



My little girl has sensory integration disorder. She has the need to chew almost all the time. We have expensive chewies and we have Nuby chewies. She seems to like the Nuby ones better. Nuby has so many different chewy items. Just look for the teething items. Nuby is so much less expensive and yet withstands so much. She has 3 year old teeth and we have not had any Nuby item break or tear. I stand behind the Nuby name.

How cute is this with the stuffed animal attached to it. The other binkies like this one are permanently attached to the binkies. This one is detachable for easy washing. Plus, if anything happens to the binkie you can replace it.




You can purchase this from Amazon for $10.99

Nuby 3 pk Non Drip 10 oz Bottles


My grandbaby loves these bottles. She was used to the Dr. Browns bottles but when I got these to test, she took to these really quick. My daughter likes the small well in the tip of the bottle nipple. Unique skirt on the nipple flexes to allow air into the bottle.

The bottle nipple has bumps on it. Provides teething nubs for massage and stimulation of gums. Helps so much for teething infants and toddlers.


Excuse the half naked baby. She keeps taking her clothes off. The colors of the bottles are so pretty. Each color can be used for boy or girl. The shape of the bottle itself is great for easy holding. Little hands have a hard time in holding a heavy, liquid filled bottle.


You can purchase these amazing bottles from:

Rustic Pizza Crusts

My family had fun making these pizzas. We don't get to have pizza too often because the size of our family.

We had cheese and mushroom pizzas. The sauce was super yummy and the crust was so easy to prepare. These do freeze well, also.


The kids devoured the pizzas and asked for more!







Ingredients:

· 1 Italian herb pizza crust

· 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin

· Salt and pepper

· 2 cups flour

· 3 eggs, beaten in bowl

· 2 cups panko bread crumbs

· 1 cup vegetable oil

· 1 ½ cups tomato sauce

· 1 cup thinly sliced mozzarella

· ¼ cup grated Parmesan

· 1/8 cup parsley chopped

· 1/8 cup basil chopped



Directions:

1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

2. To start set up your breading station, with one bowl of flour, one bowl of eggs, one bowl of panko bread crumbs

3. Season with salt and pepper, then dredge the chicken in flour, beaten eggs, then panko. Fry the chicken in vegetable oil until golden brown and cooked through, remove from oil and blot fried chicken on paper towels

4. To build the pizza, spread the tomato sauce evenly around pizza crust, sprinkle the Parmesan and mozzarella over the pizza, slice the chicken in ½ slices and place on top of the cheese.

5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown

Peppermint Oil 1oz






Have you ever used any essential oils? Different oils have different uses. Some of the oils are used for tummy aches. Some for helping you sleep. Some for helping you feel rejuvenated and give you energy.

Whatever the oil you choose or need, make sure that you are using it as directed.

Peppermint oil, not only smells good, but can help relieve those pesky headaches. Just drip a little onto your finger and rub on your temples. This does not replace pain meds or doctors visits. But can reduce a headache to almost nothing. Have a sore throat? Rub a little onto your finger or into your hand and apply around your throat. Let it sit for a few minutes and the scratchy should be relieved.

We put this in the humidifier when the baby gets a runny nose or when my allergies kick in. It helps open up the airways to help breathe. Last time I had a serious headache/migraine, I rubbed a little on my temples and my wrists. In about 45 min, with Motrin and a heat pack, I was feeling a lot better. This is not normal for me. Once the headache and or migraine hit, I'm down for the day. This does NOT take the headache away. It just helps it feel a little better. Do not replace taking Tylenol and or Motrin.

You can purchase this oil from Amazon for $14.50

Office Depots National Backpack Program




So many kids go back to school with no backpack and no supplies. There are so many ministries and companies now that try to help with this desperate need. My kids have been blessed with some of these ministries in the past. I am very happy to post about opportunities like these!


National Backpack Program – 16th Anniversary



For children to succeed in school, they need to have the right tools: pencils, pens, crayons and such – and something to carry them in, of course. With these in hand, they can walk out the door each morning with a sense of pride – excited about the day ahead.

Unfortunately, millions of kids are far from properly equipped for school. In fact, untold numbers of youngsters head out in the morning with nothing but a plastic bag or a pillowcase to carry their books and school supplies in – if they even have any supplies to carry.

The Office Depot Foundation has worked exceptionally hard to change this troubling reality. By donating great-looking new sack packs containing essential school supplies to deserving children, we are giving them invaluable tools they can use to succeed in the classroom.

In 2016, the Office Depot Foundation is marking the 16th Year of its award-winning National Backpack Program by donating approximately 200,000 colorful, kid-friendly sack packs to kids. By the end of the year, Office Depot and the Office D2016_ODF_Sackpack-v-3[1] - compressedepot Foundation will have helped more than 4 million children since the inception of the National Backpack Program in 2001.


The sack packs we donate are designed with kids in mind – they come in seven different color combinations with kid-friendly graphics. You will not find the Office Depot Foundation’s logo anywhere on the sack packs – except for a removable paper tag. We want to be sure that children are proud to carry the sack packs they receive, with no risk of being stigmatized by something that clearly identifies it as an act of charity.


An important key to the success of the National Backpack Program is our collaboration with highly regarded nonprofit partners who help us connect the dots with thousands of children in all 50 states as well as internationally. Click here to learn about our 2016 national partner organizations.


Inside the sacks there is a small pencil case with a couple pencils, a small hand sharpener, a pk of 4 crayons and a mini ruler.

Every little bit helps! Thank you Office Depot for helping these communities!
