Parker Time Potions Review & Giveaway

I'm not going to lie.  I rubbed the Parker Time Relax Potion on myself more than I did my infant.  The last month has been NUTS.  We got married (MARRIED!), finished up a school year, and are going through all the processes involved in selling two starter houses and buying one big forever house.  Anything that helps anyone in this house relax is priceless!

Parker Time Potions Pediatric Massage Oils showed up at my door at the right time!  It's specially formulated, all-natural body care that offers numerous moisturizing properties.  I love that it's a mom-created product born out of necessity, and also that a portion of all proceeds funds autism research.  

Each bottle contains a blend of sunflower oil, jojoba oil, calendula oil, and Vitamin E that work to safely moisturize even the most sensitive skin.  The gift pack comes with three varieties: Original, Play  (infused with sweet orange essential oil to not only promote the parent child bond but to also promote play) and Relax ( with Lavender Rose essential oil to promote calmness). 

And now you have a chance to win a set of your own to try out.

BooginHead Review & Giveaway

BooginHead is a mom-owned business that specializes in parenting essentials that make life easier (and more stylish) for us all.  
It all started with the mom-invented SippiGrip, which can be used with bottles and cups of different shapes and sizes and is available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. It has an adjustable length to use with strollers, car seats and high chairs, and my favorite feature is that it is machine washable.
It keeps K3 from throwing everything off his highchair- and keeps me from constantly fetching everything he throws.
Now that three of us bring a packed lunch every day, Keith and I made a big effort this year to be as green as possible in our packing.  I stocked up on all different kinds of reusable containers, and Booginhead's Eco-Friendly Pack'Ems Reusable Snack Bags are a great addition to our stash.  They come in two sizes, have a convenient stand-up design, and are dishwasher safe.
They are much more cheerful on my desk than a plastic sandwich bag.
It is no secret that we love squeezy pouches in this house.  They are a fun, on-the-go snack for the bigger kids, a quick thing to grab for my breakfast on-the-run in the morning, and an easy-to-pack meal for K3.  Squeez'Ems Reusable Food Pouches are a much Earth-friendlier alternative to disposable store-bought premade food pouches, because they are refillable and reusable.
We can use them for our homemade purées, smoothies, applesauce, yogurt... just about any of our favorites.  It's all one piece (there are ENOUGH pieces floating around our kitchen from bottles and sippies) and has a 100% leakproof seal.

And thanks to BooginHead, you can win all of these products!

Sunday Funday in NYC

This past Sunday, the boys and I took a drive into the city to attend the New York Baby Show and enjoy a sunny day.  With all the stress of house buying/selling and wedding planning, it was great to have a day that consisted of nothing but fun things and quality time.

Most of our favorite things in the city are on the west side- including big boats with water slides.
When I asked the big boys about their favorite part of the day, they said the treats- because almost every booth had cookies, candy, or cupcakes for them.  This meant they wanted to stop and talk to everyone to see what sweets they were offered.  That worked for me because it gave me time to learn about a lot of new products and make some new friends.  I ended up buying a new baby carrier from Bitybean (I saw that Suzanne bought one the day before, and I figured she certainly would know a good baby carrier when she sees one) and the BiteSizers from Mixed Pears.  

My favorite part of the day was the Momtrends Blogger lounge.  It was great to see a friend from Mabel's Labels and snack on the yummy food.  But selfishly, it was great to leave the bigger boys with The Nanny League to enjoy some pampering from the Glam Squad.  They are expanding to Long Island soon, so check it out!

The thing that made my kids the happiest was their time with East Side West Side Music Together.  At first, just JD and O were sitting for the class while I fed the baby, but K3 is mighty proud of his new clapping skills and demanded to be included.

It was such a great, family-friendly day, that I made Keith promise that we would all go together next year.
Can't leave without hitting up at least one playground.
