My Daughter's favorite game, hands down, was baseball. She enjoyed being able to swing the "bat" and try to hit the target. I love the fact that technology is incorporated with the fitness aspect and is geared toward children.
Here are some images from the game:

My hands are free, and I don't have to hold the bowl while I try to feed her. I can also let her practice feeding herself and not have to worry about the bowl tipping over! No more picking up cheerios and baby food off the floor!
The Baby Dipper Bowl is heavier than most bowls, has a contoured interior, a non-slip base, a spoon-shaped lower corner for easy scooping of food, and colorful, transparent sides. The spoon fits into her hands perfectly, and I don't have to worry about the bowl sliding around the high chair tray!

Jill from Crafty Baby was kind enough to send me the pink dots Nap Pack for review. My daughter loves it and takes it everywhere! The fleece blanket is approximately 48 inches long, with a rectangular 11" x 16" pillow attached to the top. It is designed to fit on a preschool mat but my daughter uses it for playtime and nap time at home. Just lie down on the blanket and pillow and cover yourself with the other half of the blanket. Easy!
The best part about it is that it has velcro straps, and my daughter can roll it up and put it away on her own. Talk about being independent! No clean up for mom! No extra pillows, no extra blankets, no mess! This nap pack is designed for children ages 2-7 and comes in many different designs for boys and girls.

I received two packs of WysiWipes for review. They have been such a convenience for me. I have used them around the house and on my children. I even used them at a get-together for wiping things down and my baby's face and hands. I also used them on my laptop screen.
So many uses for one little wipe.
The best part is that the wipes are environmentally friendly being that they are biodegradable, all natural, and disposable. You can even re-use them. You just add a small amount of water to a tablet and it turns into a cloth. You can use other liquid such as disinfectant and use as an antibacterial wipe. The size is so convenient for fitting into a small purse or diaper bag. I even stashed a few in different places around the house for when I need them. The cloths are very soft and scent-free.
WysiWipes also come as a Wysi Cloth 10 Roll, a Wysi 12 Travel Pack and a Wysi 100 piece bag.
Check out the video and you will see why this product is so great.

I had my daughter 11 months ago and I was doing so great. I was working out, eating better, and losing weight. I lost over 20 lbs and things were looking up. Now I am almost back to my pregnancy weight. Ugh! Actually, only 6 lbs away from it.
It's not all my "fault" though. My husband was hurt in Iraq and came back early, I had to drive around this island from this place everyday from appointment to appointment, and I just didn't make time to keep up with the weight loss routine I had established. I did so much snacking during the day and basically stopped almost cold turkey with the exercise. I've also done a lot of stress and boredom eating. Fast food places were not far from reach while I was driving from place to place and I indulged on a bunch of crap!
I went shopping today for my trip to the mainland and decided to try on a few things only to discover that I had gone up a pant size AND a shirt size. Major blow!
I have made a vow to myself to get back on track and lose this weight for good. Join me on my journey, or at least send some positive vibes my way!
I admit I'm not much of a beauty addict, but I do wear makeup sometimes. I only wear two brands
faithfully, but I am looking into trying others. When I was contacted by Orglamix to review their eye makeup, I felt that this was the perfect time to try something new.
I received the Obsidian, Blueberry, and Peppermint eye shadows. Now, I have experimented
with other brands and have been highly disappointed. Either the color wore off by the end of the
day and I had to reapply it, or the eye makeup itself just wasn't made really well.
I applied the Orglamix eye makeup and was satisfied with the results, although the Peppermint was a little more shimmery than the picture on their shop site displays, and I didn't use that much.
I wore it all day to see if it would pass my "all day wear" test and it did!
The makeup is finely ground and blended well with my skin tone.
The products are not expensive, which is another thing I look for when buying makeup. Sometimes you get what you pay for, but in this case the product is worth it.

I am sure you all have heard about the "grandpa" who went around wal-mart hitting children with his closed fists, keys in hand. Now these children didn't have to be doing a thing except breathing, but he would take it upon himself to hit them as hard as he could then run away. Luckily, one mom acted quickly and caught the little sucker before he could do it to another child. His excuse.....he liked the feeling of being able to get away with hitting someone's child while they were nearby.
I can only imagine what I would do if I found out that any of these things happened to my child. What can we do to protect our children more? What would you have done in this situation?

It never ceases to amaze me how little civilian people tend to relate to my military experience as a spouse. I have witnessed the most offhanded comments, which I now attribute to lack of knowledge or someone just really not knowing what to say. I have been married
Don't get me wrong, I love when my husband is at home, away from the dangerous confines of war and working 18 hours a day. But I do miss my single time. You know those times when I can just pig out on Baskin Robbins and leave the container by the recliner cuz I feel like it. Or not having to cook a
Sounds like I'm lazy now that I have reread it but that's hardly the case, believe me. I guess its a way of dealing with my emotions, those emotions that most women won't ever get to experience on the same level as I have. Whatever the case, I do miss it. Selfish? Maybe. I dunno. What do you think?

He was just trying to help out. This isn't the first time he has ruined my mommy wardrobe though, so I should have known better than to entrust him with my minimal garments. Hey I don't have lots of clothes, especially to throw away!
The pic below shows a few pieces I care to share out of a large load of laundry. It's just too painful to take a picture of all at once. Yes it hurts that much hehe. Out of that load of laundry everything is speckled with green dots from a permanent marker left in one of the pockets of his ACU's. The entire load kind of looks like the leftovers you'd find in the street after a Mardi Gras Parade. The pic does not do it justice though. Since I posted it you can barely see the green stains, but trust me they're there. They're EVERYWHERE!
So, lesson learned here. Check the pockets of everyone's clothing thoroughly, even before my husband does the laundry! Or be prepared to get rid of most of your wardrobe.
If anyone knows of a way the clothes can be salvaged please let me know. I'm not sure Clorox can fix this one.

We spent a lot of time in StoryLand since it catered to her age group. In StoryLand she could decorate her own house and play games that taught colors and numbers and shapes. She could also watch a movie in the theater.
GIVEAWAY CLOSED. CONGRATS TO BIGTEETHCLOUDS! HOPE YOU ENJOY!
Since we PCS'd to Hawaii two years ago, I have seen many people come and leave. I am used to it now. The military life causes you to become somewhat numb to the friendships you create. Not in a bad way. It's just that you know pretty soon you will be leaving, or your friends will be leaving before you. You have to prepare yourself to have long-distance relationships, and hope that one day you will see those friends again. Maybe even live on the same base or city as them. Rare. But it could happen.
GIVEAWAY CLOSED: WINNER IS GERRY. CONGRATS! BLOGGER IS ACTING UP SO I WILL POST SCREENSHOT OF RANDOM.ORG WHEN IT LETS ME.
When it comes to our looks and bodies I am sure there is something we all would like to change about ourselves. In the day and age that we are currently living almost anything is possible. If you want a smaller nose you can get it. If you want fuller lips you can get them. Larger breasts? No problem. Smaller tummy? You got it.
