Last year was the first time (since we had kids) that I didn’t send out photo cards and it made me feel like a bah humbug! This year I have ordered my cards early and am all excited about them. Its easy to stress about getting the perfect “Christmas card picture” but having four kids [...]

Aqua Sphere makes the BEST goggles that we could find for our kids. After going through several junky pairs and finding nothing we were happy with in stores, John went online and found Aqua Sphere goggles for the kids a few years ago. I can’t say enough good things about them because we are on [...]

*Right now you can get 10% off all products on www.oliverslabels.com from May 5th to May 10th (discount automatically taken off items in your shopping cart)! I love sticky labels with my kid’s names on them! With 4 kids we are bound to lose things and I hate that, so I slap labels on whatever [...]

One of the fun perks about doing this blog is the occasional offer to review a product that I had never heard of but instantly love. After Jillian was born I was given the wonderful gift of designing a Fill In The Blankie blanket for her. It is much more than personalized, you get to [...]

I have a lot of breastmilk in the freezer right now that I don’t feel is stored very well. I wish that the Parent Bloggers Network had asked me to review this smart breastmilk storage system 2 months ago when I was basically pumping round the clock to get my milk supply back after a [...]

My sister in law recently asked if I really like the products I review here and I just wanted to answer that before this review. The answer is YES because I am picky about what I say yes to review and also because if I do get something and it disappoints me I just don’t [...]

One of the best parts of doing product reviews is learning about toys that we had never seen before.  Our latest product is Ridemakerz, a remote control car that you put together like a Build-A-Bear.  Their website walks you through selecting the car, chassis, free-wheel or remote control, and additional parts that you can swap [...]

I have written about my trouble breastfeeding Jillian last month and because of that I was using a pump and bottles way more than I ever had with the other kids. That meant lots of washing and I hate washing! Even though I ran the dishwasher once a day I still needed to wash the [...]

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jillian’s JJ Cole BundleMe! We were sent an Urban BundleMe to review and I hope my sleep deprived brain can describe just how wonderful it is and how much easier it makes my life with 4 kids in winter. I don’t know how I lived without a BundleMe with the other [...]

Ever get a magnetic photo card in the mail? Thanks to the Parent Bloggers Network and Magnet Street we got these ADORABLE magnetic birth announcements so that all our family and friends can be greeted by Jillian when they get a snack from the fridge! Of course they’d be great to stick up at work [...]
