Who absolutely LOVES that their kids have allergies??
If any of you raised your hand just now please go and reevaluate your parenting values/life.
As for the rest of us normal parents of seasonal allergy sufferers (or fellow seasonal allergy sufferers), I think we can all agree that life with allergies can be miserable! Which is why I’m excited to continue being a part of the Children’s Claritin Mom Crew!
As a Mom Crew member, I recently had the opportunity to host a “Spring in Your Step” Mom Meet-Up! I love doing product parties because I get a chance to take some of what I do here (rant & rave about products I’m passionate about) and do it in real life!
So, just to give you an idea of some of the things we did to help motivate us and get us on the right foot for a re-energized rest of the year, and hopefully promote improved wellness for all of us and our families! We did 4 lifestyle session:
An Exercise Session
- We did a light workout as a group (and did PLENTY of laughing at each other/ourselves)
A Healthy Cooking & Eating Session
- We swapped healthy recipes and had healthy snacks (okay, and maybe a drink or two lol)
A Pampering Session
- Put on some homemade face masks and did our best alien impressions.
A Girl Talk Sessions
- An important part of taking care of yourself is having fun with friends!
At the end of our Meet-Up I gave everyone this really awesome “Preparedness Checklists” which I’m putting at the end of this post for each of you to save and print out for yourselves! Overall, I’m calling this party a success because it definitely put a spring into our steps
They just raised postage prices yet again, and now they announced that despite this they will quit delivering mail on Saturdays starting in August!?!?
Anyone else have thoughts on this??
On a reletiverly frequent basis I come across blog posts/pins on pinterest that are about “sensory play.” Can anyone explain this trend to me in terms of what it is/ why it’s so trendy? I guess I just don’t really get it and to me it looks a lot like holicopter parenting, but with that said I’m totally open to learning more on the topic before I form real opinions on the matter, so plz explain it to me ladies I’m all ears.
I am making my commitment to my blog and all my wonderful readers as one of my New Year’s resolutions. I know it’ll be a challenge since school will keep me busy till spring but I’m also going to commit myself to much better time management as one of my resolutions as well.
So here’s to the new year!!
I’m rethinking the amount I censor myself on here.
See the thing of it is, I FINALLY am fully divorced! And my ex is in prison…and a lot of people are not happy with me about that to say the least. I’m not quite sure if any of those people know about my blog or how often they would check it if they do know about it.
So I want some advice from you ladies, my lovely readers, what would you do in my situation?
So I recently got an angry email from a brand who had said they’d ship me a sample for review, which I never got, and now they were demanding a review, as in NOW! When I explained I’d never received it she tracked it and copied and pasted the stuff that says it was delivered to my town and once again insisted I had received it. And the most rediculous part? She claimed it’s a “common blogging courtesy” for bloggers to promptly write a good review after one gets sent. I am pretty damn sure her little common courtesy BS is against FTC regulations, I blog with integrity and a good review must be legitomately earned, never bought.
