Need to Keep Something Fresh, Dry, and Clean? Wrap It Up!

I have talked previously about how I am really trying to minimize the waste that our fridge produces.  (Okay, that we let happen by not taking care of it or not eating it quickly enough before it goes bad!)  I think we have done a great job at storing our food properly so we can make sure our food stays fresher, longer.  Our fridge is looking great and food is getting eaten which means, we are saving money!  Yay!  

I was on a mission to spread the food saving joy and visited the fridge at hubby's work the other day.  This fridge is used a lot.  It is used to store drinks, condiments, foods, and snacks to feed our church members, kids, and people from the community.  It sees a lot!  I opened the fridge and you know how it is, stuff just gets thrown in there in a rush because people are busy.  That particular day, I found a pitcher of juice that was covered with ClingWrap (which is great!), but there was also an opened can of chili and a package of cookies, opened, that wasn't sealed in any way.  I quickly wrapped these items up with Glad® Press‘n Seal® and put them back in the fridge.  That way, they will last longer and not have the icky fridge taste!

Glad Press'n SealI like to use Glad® Press‘n Seal® for wrapping up leftover pancakes and half eaten cups of yogurt.  It's a hassle free, simple, and even BPA free way to keep your foods fresh.

A great thing about Glad® Press‘n Seal® is for more than just food and beverages.   The boys and I brainstormed about what we could wrap in Glad® Press‘n Seal®.  The boys said it would be great to wrap their shoes and clothes and stick them in a backpack for a rainy campout.  That way, your clothes stay dry!  Also, I had the idea of wrapping diapers and tossing them in the diaper bag for rainy days.  This is even good for every day use, because I can't tell you how many times the diaper in my bag has been wet from leaky cups!  Wrapping up the emergency diaper is always a great idea.

Glad® is encouraging people to "Wrap Outside The Lines" with their fun contest.  Get creative for a chance to win a trip to ride a rooftop rollercoaster in Las Vegas!  Each week, you will have a different challenge.  Simply wrap it, snap a picture of it, and tweet it, along with @GetGlad and you're in!  Check out Wrap Outside the Lines for more information.

Easy Dot Art Shamrock Craft For Kids – St. Patrick’s Day

 

Easy Dot Art Shamrock Craft for Kids

Crafts are something that we all can agree on in this house.  The boys are excellent about coming up with their own crafts, but sometimes they need a little guidance to get started.  They love these Do A Dot Art! markers that Grammy gave to them and so I drew a shamrock (doesn't have to be perfect!) and let them dot around it.  The box says to only dot the markers, not drag them, so that adds another level of patience and skill to their crafting.  They seriously use these for everything.  We have made letters, their names, different drawings, and now these shamrock craft paintings.  They turned out really cute!

Materials needed:

Easy Dot Art Shamrock Craft

Directions:

1.  Draw or print an outline of a shamrock.

2.  Have child dot the marker all around the outline, then fill in the inside with green.

3.  Create a rainbow pattern with remaining colors (red, orange, yellow, blue, purple) and create a rainbow "behind" the shamrock.  We made two lines of dots for each color, then repeated the colors until there was no more white space showing.  

4.  Let dry (it doesn't take long) and display for St. Patrick's Day!

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Fruit and Nut Bars

Oatmeal Cookie Fruit and Nut Bars

We are all cookie lovers in this house.  Sometimes, I'll admit, I just make cookies to eat the yummy dough (shhh!) but this recipe is great because you can use store bought chocolate oatmeal cookie dough to make delicious, hearty, nutritious oatmeal cookie bars.  The add-ins deliver flavor and something sweet and special in your warm cookie bar.  Pair with a glass of cold milk, coffee, or iced tea, and it's a great afternoon snack!  (Easily substitute other nuts or leave them out to make this recipe allergy friendly.)

Ingredients:

Oatmeal Cookie Fruit and Nut Bars

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚.
  2. In a small bowl, soak the raisins and cranberries in 2 cups warm water for 5 minutes, drain.
  3. In another bowl, break the oatmeal cookies apart and add the oats, raisins, cranberries, pecans, coconut and chocolate chips – mix to combine.
  4. Place the mixture into an 8×8 inch pan lined with lightly greased parchment paper with a little excess paper hanging over the edges to use as handles to remove from the pan for cutting.
  5. Optiona -, place whole pecans or additional chopped pecans on top.
  6. Bake at 350˚ until deep golden brown, 30-35 minutes.
  7. Let cool before cutting into bars.  
  8. Store in airtight container unrefrigerated up to one week.  Refrigerate for up to two weeks.

The New, Upgraded Pack ‘n Play ® Is Perfect From Newborn – Toddler

#AtHomeWithGraco ADTracking PixelThis Pack ‘n Play® post has been brought to you by Graco®.  All opinions are mine.

AtHomeWithGraco Party

The one product that I have used from the Captain's second day of birth is the Graco® Pack ‘n Play®.  We set it up in our room before he was born and it was awesome for middle of the night changes, and a comfy place for him to sleep while in our room.  We used it as his bed anytime we traveled, and also did the same for the other two boys.  This is the ONE product that truly is great from newborn – toddler age.  A friend of mine has two – one to keep at home and one in the car.  It allows her toddling baby to have a safe place to play at the water park, park, or other outdoor events if she needs to tend to her older children.  It is just so multifunctional and I recommend everyone add it to their baby registry!

Last week, I attended a party for the NEW Graco® Pack ‘n Play® Playard Portable Napper & Changer™.  It was well attended by other bloggers in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, along with Massive Sway representatives, and a knowledgeable Graco rep, who told us all about this updated playard.  We were all in awe over this awesome product.  (And also in awe of the precious 2 week old baby that was there, trying it out!)  My favorite feature of the playard was the option for a newborn to sleep in the portable napper or the bassinet part and all you have to do is flip the napper over to create a changer that can be easily wiped off.  This is something that even *I* can do at 3 AM!  And while there are two wheels on the playard, which makes for easy mobility, the removable napper/changer can be easily carried around the house to make the perfect spot during the daytime hours.

At the live Graco® There were many fun friends to meet, snacks to eat, and cool Graco stuff!  There were also stairs.  Stairs entice babies and toddlers.  Stairs are a mom's worst enemy. 

Graco Pack n PlayAtHomeWithGracoAtHomeWithGraco

I loved getting to hang out with fellow mommy bloggers from the area and listening to what the Graco rep had to say about this helpful product.  Plus…did I mention the adorable babies?  So, so sweet!
AtHomeWithGraco pack n play

If you know any new or expectant parents or grandparents, THIS is the one product I definitely recommend.  Graco® products are dependable and honestly, it's my favorite baby brand.  Graco® is a leading innovator of baby and children's products that are trusted by millions of parents.  Car seats, strollers, travel systems, swings, high chairs, playards, and nursery care essentials are all quality and helpful for parents, grandparents, guardians, and childcare providers.

The features of the Graco® Pack ‘n Play® Playard Portable Napper & Changer™ are beyond awesome:

12 Alternatives to “Fifty Shades of Grey” To Strengthen Your Marriage

12 "Fifty Shades of Grey" Alternatives to Strengthen Your MarriageValentine's Day used to be all about love, cards, candy, and little stands popping up everywhere, selling a dozen roses and stuffed animals to men who had forgotten about this crazy little holiday.  This year, however, it seems like everything I see on social media is about the "Fifty Shades of Grey" phenomenon.  Some are adamanatly against it and some cannot wait until they can go with their spouses to see it on, oddly enough, Valentine's Day.  Wherever you stand, I am here to offer you some healthy, good for your relationship alternatives to "Fifty Shades of Grey" this weekend.  Because while there are likely a lot of men and women who are into this sort of thing, there are SO MANY other resources that I PROMISE will strenghten your marriage and help you have a healthy sex life  and fulfilling relationship long after this whole fifty shades hype is over, if you give them a shot.  I promise.

1.  The Fantasy Fallacy by Shannon Ethridge – (Kindle version on sale for only $2.99 through 2/15) great resource about understanding the true meaning of fantasies and how to deal with them.  It's a perfect response to "Fifty Shades of Grey."  Hubby and I recently took a class with Shannon and she is truly inspiring and has some awesome advice and research based, valuable information to share.

2.  Laugh Your Way To A Better Marriage DVD – Mark Gungor is hilarious and presents honest truth about men and women and how to work together to achieve a fantastic marriage.  Or if you're more into books,  Laugh Your Way To A Better Marriage:  Unlocking the Secrets to Life, Love, and Marrige by Mark Gungor is available.  We have had the great opportunity to hear Mark speak live and it was amazing!  We came out of the conference refreshed and closer than ever.  (Check out my review of Mark's DVD.)

Marriage Quote

3.  Pulling Back The Shades: Erotica, Intimacy, and the Longings of a Woman's Heart by Dannah Gresh and Dr. Juli Slattery – this book promises to address your desire to be both sexual and spiritual.  These are things that the Church is afraid to talk about, even though God created it!  (read the first chapter here and read a review here and another here!)

4.  Awaken Love:  The Song couple's devotional, couple's kit, and The Song DVD – The Song is a movie released in theaters about love, marriage, and temptation.  While I have not seen the movie, I hear it's a good one.  I was able to review the couple's devotional book, which has been fantastic.  

5.  His Needs, Her Needs:  Building An Affair Proof Marriage by Willard F. Harley, Jr. – bestselling book that helps women and men understand each other and how to effectively work on their marriage to make it the best ever.

6.  The 30 Day Marriage Challenge ebook by (DFW blogger) Becky Moseley – see what a difference a month makes!  Complete a challenge every day to make your marriage stronger and better.

7.  The Sexually Confident Wife – Connecting With Your Husband – Mind, Body, Heart, Spirit by Shannon Ethridge – addresses many issues (past abuse, self doubt, guilt, etc) that cause wives to not be confident with their husbands and provides great information that is not crude.

8.  Fireproof DVD – A great movie about love, marriage, and the struggles married couples face.

9.  The Passion Principles:  Celebrating Sexual Freedom in Marriage by Shannon Ethridge – A book about what God wants for married couples.  He created sex for married couples, and Shannon honestly and frankly opens the minds of husbands and wives to celebrate the spirtual, mental, emotional, and physical dimensions of sexuality.

10. Mark Gungor's Butt-Kicking Woman Conference DVD my review – Simply put, so many women are doormats for men to use and abuse however they want.  This is a big problem, especially with "Fifty Shades."  Women expect the man to always fall in love with them, and rarely does that happen.  Mark, along with special guest speakers, shows women how to be confident and kick butt, so there's no room for abusive men.  

11. Ways to Romance Your Husband – awesome (free!) blog post from (DFW blogger) Staci from 7 On A Shoestring (Staci has many great posts about marriage, like 4 Ways To Say "I Love You" Without Saying A Word.

12.  Lastly, if you're looking for a healthy, non-erotica romance novel to read, FamilyChristian.com has many great books for you.  Love stories can be fun and exciting without all of the rest.

12 Fifty Shades of Grey Alternatives To Strengthen Your Marriage

You will find that most of these are Christian resources, but you definitely do not have to be a Christian to reap the benefits.  Most Christians are anti-Fifty Shades and pornography, but I want to point out that there have been countless people write about the negative effects of pornography that are not religious at all.  

"Once the layers are pulled back, it becomes obvious that pornography brings far more harm to our society than good. Its homogenous representations of beauty and sexual activities have created a narrow sexual aesthetic that women must physically harm themselves to achieve. Worse, it consistently features the degradation and abuse of women, valuing them not as people to be respected but objects to be used and creating a climate in which violence is accepted. These negative actions and attitudes against women make it clear that pornography is against the humanist idea that all people are worthy of safety and respect."

source

But it really goes beyond the traditional sense of "porn."  Many women say that "Fifty Shades of Grey" isn't porn.  But…it is.  Check out this definition from XXXChurch:

"Porn is anything you use (watch, read, hear, or imagine) that’s used to illicit sexual arousal outside of your spouse."

If you have ever been to this blog before reading this post, you know that I do not typically write about things of this nature.  Also, I am not one to usually jump on the "bandwagon" of mainstream events.  But I want you to know that there is so much more for you and your spouse than this!  Your "porn," whatever it may be, is like settling for a cheap, disgusting microwave dinner when you could be going to a 5 star restaurant.  It's just not worth it.  There are FAR better alternatives than the latest erotic movie craze.  You, your spouse, your family, and your life is worth more than settling for this!  I hope you find something from the above list that is helpful.  Good luck!

Our Journey of Firsts {Giveaway and Twitter Party, too!}

This journey of firsts post was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided product free of charge to facilitate my post, but all opinions are 100% mine.

#PampersFirsts

I never imagined that I would be the mother of three boys, but I am, and it is pretty awesome.  I remember distinctly many firsts in each of the boys' lives.  That first sweet smile, giggle, crawl, or step!  I am glad that I have kept a first year calendar for each of the boys, however, or I would not remember when certain "firsts" happened in the boys' lives.  I have learned though that when firsts happen does not really matter.  What matters is that babies are surrounded with love and support….and sweet celebration when little ones roll over, crawl, walk or talk for the very first time!

From the first time parents see their little one on a sonogram to the first evening home from the hospital, this Pampers “Firsts” video showcases precious, heart-felt moments babies and parents share together.  Pampers recognizes that all first moments, no matter how big or small, are moments to be cherished and celebrated. Pampers is honored to be a part of the journey of firsts for millions of families around the world every day.  Grab a tissue and watch this incredibly sweet video!

Pampers Swaddlers was the first diaper each of the boys wore in the hospital after they were born.  Pampers Swaddlers is the #1 choice of hospitals in North America and the first diaper worn by millions of babies.  I always loved the sweet smell of Pampers Swaddlers, the the soft feel against baby's skin.  These are quality diapers that you can depend on when you have so many other things to worry about!

Pampers Swaddlers are now available up through size 6.  Pampers listened to parents and have provided us with the dependability and soft, sweet diapers through the journey of firsts through the diapering years.  Swaddlers offer up to 12 hours of protection so, if your baby isn't sleeping through the night, (mine didn't and Baby Brother still doesn't!) you can rest assured that it's not a leaky diaper that's to blame.  You CAN depend on the color changing wetness indicator and Absorb Away Liner® to pull wetness and mess away from babies’ skin.

12 Delicious Date Night Dinners

This date night post has been brought to you by Foodie.  All opinions are mine.

date night

Valentine's Day is just a few days away!  While going out to a restaurant with your love is great, the good places are always so crowded on V Day.  Two years ago, we went to a popular restaurant before 5 and there was already a 2 hour wait.  And people were actually waiting!  I couldn't believe it.  Right then I decided that going out to eat was not going to happen on Valentine's Day for a long, long time.  I'd rather maximize my baby-sitting time and having someone watch my kids while I sat and waited to be able to *enter* a restaurant for TWO hours is just insane.  Maybe for dating couples who can sit and stare in each other's eyes and not have any other care int he world, but definitely not for me!  

It's nice just to stay in and enjoy a meal, just the two of us.  Sure there is cooking involved, but cooking is a labor of love for me.  I absolutely love being able to cook something that I know Hubby will enjoy!  I have collected 12 delicious date night dinners, all perfect for a romantic meal on Valentine's Day, or any date night.

Avoid The Doctor’s Office with Doctor on Demand {free code}

All three of the boys were born during cold and flu season.  I always hated bundling them up and hauling them to a waiting room full of people with various illnesses.  Thankfully, they never caught anything from the doctor's office (that happens later when they touch everything,) but it still would have been nice to have other options.  Well, now you have a great option for staying home when you definitely do not feel like going anywhere.  Doctor on Demand is a healthcare service that allows parents and kids to stay in the comfort of their own home and receive quality medical attention.  Patients can receive Video Visits with board certified physicians, psychologists, and even lactation consultants via smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers.

A few months ago, I tried out the Doctor on Demand app for the first time.  It was fantastic for helping with Baby Brother's bad face eczema.  We were between well child check-ups and I did not want to lug three kids to the doctor and pay an insane fee, but we did need medical advice.  Perfect scenario for Doctor on Demand.  Another good opportunity came up recently where the staff at the boys' clinic actually called to ask if we would wait until Spring to bring the older two boys in for their well child check-ups because they had been having SO many come in with the flu and other viruses.  Of course I said yes, but that also meant that we had to delay asking about a few things for the boys.  That's when I knew Doctor on Demand would come to the rescue, again.

I opened up the Doctor on Demand app and entered all of the Captain's info…age, symptoms, etc.  We then were put in a virtual "waiting room" while we were connected to a doctor.  The wait was about 2 minutes, which was beyond reasonable.  I wait 2 minutes just to see the receptionist at the boys' clinic.

doctor on demand

We were connected to Dr. Olson.  He was very kind and introduced himself to the Captain and I. That's another thing about Doctor on Demand….you do NOT have to get dressed up and ready to go to the doctor when you feel bad already.  Look at my crazy hair!  I don't even care!  Doctor on Demand

Dr. Olson was so nice to us and listened to what I had to say.  He had me use the app to take a picture of a rash that the Captain had and send it to him.  He looked at it after it sent and made a diagnosis.  He then gave information about how to treat it and take care of it, and offered to call in a prescription to treat it, as well.  He also said that if it did not clear up in 2 weeks, to follow up with his regular physician.

With our insurance, a visit like this with the Captain's doctor would have been around $120.  (We don't pay copays, but do have a low deductible.)  Add in the cost of gas and loading up three kids in the van, sitting in the waiting room, being exposed to other sick people, waiting at the drugstore, etc.  Doctor on Demand saved us SO MUCH time, money, and possibly more sickness.  (While we were given a code to use for a free visit, it would have cost $40 for a 15 minute call.)

Doctor on Demand has a great promotion for the month of February.  First time visits are FREE this month!  If you think you or someone in your family has the flu?  Free consultation with a doctor.  Weird looking rash?  Free consultation with a doctor.  Then, if you do end up needing to follow up with your regular doctor, you won't be out any extra money.  Sounds great, huh?  Use code "CAPTAIN15" for your first FREE Doctor on Demand call!

I was also thrilled to see that you can visit with lactation consultants and psychologists.  Do you know how many people NEED to visit a lactation consultant or psychologist but don't due to anxiety, transportation issues, fussy babies, or other reasons?  I think that Doctor on Demand is doing a fabulous service for the people that truly need it the most.

Kid Friendly Valentine’s Day Activities

Kid Friendly Valentine's Day Activities

Valentine’s Day is a special day of the year whether you are young or old.  It’s a day to celebrate love and friendship.  Jennifer Carver, of Spaceships and Laser Beams, is here to share some kid-friendly ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Relationships are important to children, just as they are to adults.  Allowing children to acknowledge the special people in their life is a great way to help them celebrate the day.  This can be accomplished in a variety of fun and festive ways.

Idea #1:  Arrange a Valentine making station.  Gather blank greeting cards, envelopes, Valentine’s Day themed stickers, colorful trims in red, pink and purple, buttons and scraps of paper.  Create a crafting station with printables, scissors, glue, adhesive and plenty of markers and pens.  Help the children make a list of special friends and family members they’d like to remember on Valentine’s Day.

Idea #2:  Organize a service scavenger hunt.  Children enjoy doing small acts of service to show love. Have your children brainstorm a list of appropriate tasks they can do to show love for others.  Some ideas include:

·        Making a sibling’s bed.

·        Taking flowers to their teacher.

·        Dropping off a treat on a friend’s doorstep.

·        Coloring a picture for a grandparent.

·        Giving a friend a present.

·        Making cookies or candy for a neighbor.

Idea #3:  Plan a “heart attack”.  No, not that kind of heart attack.  This kind of heart attack involves creating a copious variety of paper hearts on which the children write down favorite memories or thoughtful words to describe the individual (or family) being “heart attacked”.  Once the hearts are created and filled out, the children carefully attach them to a neighbor’s or teacher’s windshield or doorframe as a fun surprise!  The finished product looks like a bunch of hearts staged an attack.  Consider this a nicer alternative to the toilet papering days of old!

Idea #4:  Visit a nursing home.  If you live close enough to a nursing home, take older children to visit some of the residents who might be lonely.  Take a Bingo game (you can print free versions off the internet) and boxes of conversation hearts to use as game markers for a fun Valentine’s Day themed twist.  Residents will love the visit!

Idea #5:  Decorate Valentine’s Day themed cookies.  Children love cookies, especially when they are in charge of decorating them!  Bake or buy a batch of your favorite sugar cookies.  Line and fill a muffin tin with cookie toppings like sprinkles, cinnamon hearts, sanding sugar and chocolate chips for decorating.  Fill disposable frosting bags with tinted frosting.  Then, let the kids go crazy decorating cookies to eat and share with friends.  Set aside a plate or two of cookies to wrap up and take to someone of the children’s choosing.  This could be a great friend, wonderful teacher or lonely neighbor.

What are some of your kid-friendly Valentine’s Day activities?  Add your own and make it a day your children will not soon forget!

Encourage Independence With A Packing Checklist for Kids {free printable + giveaway, too!}

This packing checklist for kids shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GNKroger #CollectiveBias

Our boys are six and four and LOVE the idea of going to stay the night at their grandparents' houses.  They love their grandparents, but they still get a bit anxious when being away from home without us.  They do have each other, thank goodness, because I do not think they would actually stay at Grandma's house otherwise.  I want them to be comfortable when sleeping away from home and the first step to being comfortable is to take things that they are familiar with that provide comfort.  I also like to encourage independence by making a packing checklist for them to think about what they need, what the weather will be like, and what will make them feel most comfortable and enjoy the night at Grandma's.  (Click the image below for a free printable to download.)

 

Packing Checklist for kids

D is four and has been potty trained since he was two and a half.  He potty trained pretty easily, but we soon learned that night time was a whole different ball game!  We learned that bedwetting really has nothing to do with daytime potty training.  Many parents don't realize that bedwetting is a fairly common, developmental condition and they can't "train" their child out of it.  We did a lot of things like try to limit drinks after a certain time (yeah right!  If  my child is thirsty, I want him to drink!)  We also used different motivators to get him to want to wake up and use the restroom in the middle of the night but the truth is…he is a very deep sleeper, which is EXCELLENT for every thing except the issue of bedwetting.  The poor guy would wake up completely soaked and sometimes…he will not even wake at all!  I have checked on them multiple times at 4 or 5 AM and D is wet and snoozing away.  So yeah, it is definitely not something that we can train him not to do.  (According to a GoodNites® brand study, it's estimated that 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 in the United States suffer from nocturnal enuresis, more commonly known as bedwetting.)

 

#GNKroger

So the next step was to accept it and not make a big deal out of it.  That's where GoodNites® disposable underwear come in.  We keep a stash in his underwear/sock drawer, he wears them under his pajamas and he stays dry all night long.  If it's wet in the morning, no big deal.  He will grow out of bedwetting eventually.  

 

#GNKroger

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GoodNites® products are easy to find at Kroger and it lessens the embarassment for him when I am able to just throw them in the cart hurriedly and then go find new and fun fruits in the produce section!

GoodNites Disposable Underwear

 

Research from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that psychologically, children who wet the bed do not want to participate in fun activities, such as sleepovers, because of their fear and embarrassment.  D is able to enjoy his trip to Grandma's without worrying about wetting her bed because of GoodNites® disposable underwear.  That's why it is at the first of his packing checklist, because it's so important to make a fun, enjoyable, comfortable experience where the boys can enjoy their time with Grandma!
