Robeez Kids Shoes for Spring

Thanks to Robeez for the shoes to help with the review

Robeez footwear mimics bare feet by flexing and bending with every step. Supporting not constricting growing feet, they promote good balance and unrestricted growth, while protecting little feet from the world.

When Robeez approached me and asked if I'd like to feature them for their Spring Collection, I fell in love with these Sunshine shoes. I love the white lace, dainty look they have, and how fabulous they could go with anything Mya would be wearing in a day. I was sent them for review and asked for a 18-24 months thinking they'd fit perfectly with some room to grow.

SoCozy Hair Products For Kids

Thanks to SoCozy for the two products to help review

Author and beauty veteran Cozy Friedman first opened Cozy’s Cuts For Kids, a premiere children’s hair salon aimed at redefining the entire children’s haircut experience, in 1992. Now, 20 years and multiple salons later, Friedman introduces SoCozy salon formulas for kids - the first ever premium line of hair care products made with the finest ingredients gentle enough for kids. Offering non-toxic products with no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic color, propylene glycol and free of gluten, wheat and nuts that perform at a salon level with packaging that appeals to kids and parents alike.

Having four little girls with different hair types is hard on me. I'm not super girly and I don't know how to do many things with hair, but one thing my girls got from me is super tangly unmanageable at times hair. Ever since I can remember my hair has been frizzy, tangled, and always in my way. Our oldest daughter especially has my hair type and I was excited when So Cozy pitched me to review and I requested two products from all you see above.

Dining Out at Home Cookbooks Review

Thanks to Ulysses Press for the books to review

As a large family, it's expensive to eat out. For us its a treat on the rare occasions we go somewhere for dinner, so when I saw these cookbooks I was intrigued about the possibilities we could have with staying at home but still possibly enjoying those yummy tastes we seek when going out. I only did a couple of these recipes, but it's fun to do when you have the extra prep time.

New Costumes: More than just for Halloween!

Thanks to Costume SuperCenter for the costume to help with this review

CostumeSuperCenter is your one-stop source for costumes and accessories for all holidays, parties and occasions. 

If you have little girls, chances are Frozen is a favorite in your home. We were a little late to the hype, but with three girls ages 3+, it works out well that they all love the same thing. As soon as our girls got done Trick or Treating last October, they already discussed what they wanted to be next year. Luckily for us our two oldest don't fight over which character they are, with one liking Elsa and one liking Anna. Since Macyn is younger and not as in to princesses, she fell in love with Olaf, they warm and fuzzy snowman. 

For the last six months I've thought about our girls and how to make all four of them a Frozen character, but then when this review opportunity came up, I was ecstatic to see Olaf and that I could start my process of getting ready for Halloween!

Make it Easy for Mom: Mother's Day Giveaway

Welcome to the Make it Easy for Mom this Mother's Day Giveaway, generously sponsored by Medi-Pals!
Do you struggle with giving your child medication or vitamins? Medi-Pals medication dispensers are going to make your life so much easier! Medi-Pals dispensers are available in 3 whimsical characters that are familiar for your child, easy for the caregiver to use, and most importantly, ensure that the child is always getting the accurate dosage of medicine.
Key benefits of Medi-Pals pacifier medicine dispensers:
  • They're softer than a straight syringe, and the syringe sits snugly in the nipple, so no medicine gets lost or stuck to the sides.
  • They're accurate - the caregiver is in complete control of dosage.
  • The diverter on the pacifier nipple fans the medicine to the sides, not straight to the back of the child's throat, so that the child won't gag and spit the medicine out.
  • They're reusable, dishwasher-safe, and easy to clean.
  • The pacifier and faceplate are easy to put together and take apart. You can even change faceplates!
  • They work with more than just oral vitamins, pain relievers, and oral antibiotics - it can also be used with baby food or even honey. If you can get it into the syringe, it will work.
  • They're made in the USA!

Graco's Milestone All-in-1 Car Seat Review

Thanks to Graco for this carseat to help with this review

The Graco® brand of baby gear provides thoughtful, practical and dependable parenting solutions inspired by the instincts and best intentions of a loving parent. After carefully observing a parent's natural instincts to protect, nurture, comfort and soothe, Graco brings them to life in a broad range of innovative products, from strollers and car seats to high chairs, playards, monitors and more.

With four children in 7 years, I like to think I know a little bit about car seats and children's products. Since our oldest daughter was little, we've purchased several Graco items over the years. They're a great brand that I trust, and they're my 'go-to' brand when in stores. 

I was lucky enough to review their SnugRide® Click Connect 35 Infant car seat with the birth of our fourth daughter, which was posted in February 2014. After that I got to review their Ready2Grow Click Connect Double Stroller, and now that Mya is 16 months old I'm introducing to the Graco Milestone 3-in-1 car seat
