Keep Bugs Away Naturally With Absolute Green

I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review.

I love the lazy days of summer. Warm sunny days and mild evenings mean lots of outside time for the kids but you all know what happens when dusk arrives. Mosquitoes. Nasty, obnoxious, potentially disease carrying mosquitoes. They have you reaching for insect repellant that is loaded the potentially toxic chemical, DEET.

Now you have another option. Absolute Green bug spray is DEET free and safe for your kids and the rest of your family.

Rent Toys for Your Kids with a Sparkbox Toys Subscription

I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review.

Far too many times I have bought toys for my kids only to have them sitting in a corner collecting dust a few weeks later. When we moved from New England to Colorado we did a major clean up that included a yard sale, two trips to Goodwill, and a trip to the dump. Many of the items included were toys and a lot of them were hardly played with. 

I have thought in the past that it would be great to be able to rent toys and try them out before buying them and now you can with Sparkbox Toys!

How to Prep Wool Covers in 10 Minutes

This post contains an affiliate link.

Wool can be scary to a lot of people, me included. It took me years to try wool because it seemed hard, it sounded gross (you only wash it once a month?! Yuck!), and I just didn’t get it. Then my son became an older toddler and regular covers weren’t always cutting it so I tried it and I loved it!

One of the questions I see fairly often in cloth diaper circles is how to prep wool. I am going to show you how easy it really is and that it only takes about ten minutes.

Easy to Make Snacks for After School or Any Time!

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #AfterSchoolSnacks

Red started his Sophomore year last week and that means stocking the refrigerator and freezer with easy to make snacks for him to have after school. I like to have easy to make snacks that encourage him to eat vegetables and since he won’t sit down and munch on carrot sticks I have to get creative.

We went to Walmart and chose Bagel Bites to make bagel sandwiches and Delimex taquitos to have with homemade pico de gallo and guacamole. Kids, you have to trick them sometimes.
