Get A Second Chance With The SUDAFED REPLAY™ Sweepstakes

This post is sponsored by SUDAFED REPLAY™, all views and opinions are my own honest reports. See Disclosure.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could schedule in when you're going to be sick and just plan accordingly? I chuckle at the thought of being able to just plan out the days so I would never be sick at a bad time. Let's face it when it comes to being sick "Ain't Nobody Got Time For That!" It's never a good time to be sick but when getting a cold interferes with your life you may need a little extra help with the sinus junk. This past week I've had more than my fair share of nasty sinus trouble. The Booper got sick and as a mom I don't have the option to stay away from sickness when my little guy needs me. As all moms know when your kids are sick you're on double-duty to keep up the house and keep up the extra snuggles as they need it. Wore out from taking care of the Boop, I became sick too.

Captivating images of dinosaurs walking the earth will keep your attention as you watch Walking With Dinosaurs. The Booper's mouth dropped open as he watched.

Find out more about this dino-sized feature and grab an activity sheet for your child!

NCircle Octonauts DVD
The Octonauts are diving into the deep blue sea, while the Booper watches in deep concentration. A new fan of this fun crew the Booper got the giggles as Peso Penguin tried to help a hurt great white shark. We learned several fun facts about ocean creatures along the way, and the Booper absorbs every detail when he watches kid's movies. The Octonauts are well equipped to handle the challenges they face while helping other animals- they also met the challenge of keeping my preschooler entertained!

Spring, Sickness And Other S Words

It's Spring. If I haven't wished you a happy Spring yet...Happy Spring! I've been so looking forward to the new season then I missed it. The first day of Spring came and it went, and our family was none the wiser. Spring typically means a change in weather but this year it's just cold and more cold.

The S word Sick comes to mind. Everyone always says that the weather can't affect your health but it seems that with every weather change I know people who get sick. Our family caught the sickness this go around and the Booper has an ear infection. Mostly I'm just sick of the cold, but I lost my voice. Speechless. Another funny S word not because I have nothing to say but because I have no voice to say it. At least what voice I do have sounds like a seventy year old smoker who just swallowed some sand paper.

Which reminds me. Sand. The S word I miss most. I wish I was at the beach. When you can't speak you might as well be somewhere that you love to just listen. Listening to the sounds of the waves and the ocean and the seagulls swooping down to snatch some morsel off the beach. Imagining dolphins jumping and spinning for their own delight. Sun. Oh how happy that S word makes me just the thought of it on a cloudy day. Soaking up some sun will be the top of my list when we see it again this Summer. Summer! I am getting ahead of myself.

Silly. The Booper is my silly little muse always saying the funniest things. We woke up the other cloudy and gray morning and sitting up slowly the Booper rubbed his eyes then looked around with his mouth hanging open and said, "Oh no Mommy they forgot the sun!"

Luck Be A Baby- Style Meets Comfort With Crane

I received the below mentioned product free in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. See Disclosure.
Back before we first learned of the Booper's allergy to Lavender we were making regular visits to an Allergist. The doctor was trying to help us get to the bottom of what was causing the Booper to get sick over and over again. During one of his many times of being sick his Pediatrician recommended we purchase a humidifier for his bedroom. We borrowed a humidifier for a while from my parents and then we discovered the cause of all the sickness. I was using a cleaner with Lavender oil in it. I had no idea. The doctors kept telling me to keep our home as clean as possible so I would dust more, then he just kept getting sick. As it turns out the whole time I was putting more of the thing that bothered him in the air just trying to help him!
Thankfully we now know not to use anything with Lavender and we have the Cool Mist Humidifier from Crane.

Lay Your Weary Head To Rest With New Sheets From Brylane Home

I received the below mentioned products in exchange for my honest opinions. All views and opinions are my own. See Disclosure. 
My family has enjoyed reviewing the Microfleece Bedding collection from Brylane Home. It's impossible to put a value on the benefit of having a great night's sleep. I've always known your mattress can really affect your sleep but I never considered that our sheets could make a difference. I never knew there was such a thing as microfleece sheets, and boy have we been missing out! I've found since we've been sleeping with our new sheets from Brylane Home I've been sleeping through the night better since these sheets don't slide off as easily. During some of the coldest nights my husband and I and on occasion even the Booper have been toasty warm under our new covers.

The Booper like most four year old kids loves stuffed animals, he has several that he piles up on his bed each night. I usually end up putting a few on the floor just so he'll have room to sleep. All of his loveys give him comfort at night and when we travel we have to take a couple with us for him to feel at home wherever we go. Some of his favorite stuffed animals come from the Build-A-Bear Workshop.

Luck Be A Baby- MAM Soothes Fussy Babies

When it comes to baby as the saying goes- If baby ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. That is the truth. Before we brought the Booper home from the hospital I intended that he would never use pacifiers or soothers. That quickly changed as I learned soothing my baby was a good thing. Giving him something to make him feel comfort was what worked for our new family of three. It just happened that my niece and nephew used MAM pacifiers and we felt comfortable using the same with the Booper. Plus- I loved the cute designs!
