Blogging Again!

I've been gone for ages from this blog. With five kids I found out that the crazy part was very true. My days have been busy and exciting. I never seemed to find the time to write a post. So I went on a three year hiatus. Now all my monkeys are in school, so I'm giving blogging another go.

My monkeys have grown up so fast. Some days I miss having a little baby, but let me tell you, these five keep me on my feet. They crack me up constantly with little things they say and do. There will probably be plenty of posts were I brag about my funny little monsters. Maybe they'll make you laugh, too.

Rendi Review and Giveaway

Rendi is a U.S based company that was started by Annie Danielson. Rendi creates beautiful picture frames and signs that can be customized. All Rendi products are planet friendly. They sell individual frames and signs, and they also sell large packages to help customers create a beautiful story wall.

For my review I ordered a beautiful Pattern Play Small Horizontal Offset Frame. There were several design options. I could choose from several colors, I chose Chocolate. I could add a photo for free or wait until I received the frame and add one. I chose the latter. Then I could add writing. I could search through their Quote Library for something to add to my frame or I could add something myself. Since I intended to use this frame for my parents I chose something from my children. 

Shipping was very fast, and my frame was packaged really well. It came secured in a very pretty folded envelope, which could easily work for gift giving. The quality is amazing. I wasn't expecting it to be as heavy as it was. It is very solid, and the wood was smooth. The design is so pretty! I love the blue with the chocolate. It can be hung on a wall or stood up like it is in my picture.

You can learn more about Rendi or purchase their amazing products on their Website, Facebook, and Twitter. Rendi is giving one of my readers a $50 Online Gift Code for Rendi Style. Enter on the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win.

Rock 'N Learn Sight Words Level 2 Review


Rock 'N Learn is an amazing learning tool. They have taken learning and set it to music to help children grasp it easier and enjoy it more. There are a huge variety of fun learning tools available ranging from reading and phonics to foreign language.


This time my children and I reviewed Sight Words Level 2. Once again they were very excited for their DVD. My five year old and three year old will both be going to school this year. Sight words play a big part of what they are taught in their Montessori class. The Sight Words Lever 2 (and Level 1) is a great way for them to work on words they'll be using in school. So far the two DVDs have done a great job of keeping up with the words that my girls will be learning.

The Level 2 DVD teaches children 68 new sight words and it also reviews words they learned on the Level 1 DVD. It is for Kindergarten to First Grade children. Of course we were singing and dancing and learning new words. Their favorite parts were the bears and dogs. Also, the part where they got to be detectives and learn the tenses of words was really great.

You can purchase your own Rock 'N Learn products and learn more about them on their website, Facebook, and Twitter.

Moody Bands Review


Moody Bands are a really great product that helps children to express their moods in a fun and easy way. There are six of these wrist bands made of 100% cotton. They are very soft and well made. Each band is a different color and they all have a smiley representing the mood that is text on the bands as well. There is a band for Happy, Sad, Tired, Nervous, Angry, and Excited.

My children were excited to see this package come. Anything that they can wear is exciting and fun for them. We received the Moody Band Full Set. Ashlynn, Riley, and I have discussed what each emotion means and which band represents it, so they can wear it.

Let the modeling begin!!

Obviously we had a fun time with this product. The girls did a great job of showing me the emotions and I think these will be an interesting way to help them learn to express their feelings and emotions. 

If you want to purchase Moody Bands or learn more about them you can do so on their website and Facebook.

Gutzy Gear - Review and Giveaway


Gutzy Gear is an awesome way for children to express themselves. I have two daughters in school this year and when my Gutzy Gear package came in the mail they were so excited. We received two sets of the backpack strap covers and four packs of Gutxies (removable patches).

The Gutzy Gear was so simple to put together. The girls each picked out which patches they wanted and they Velcro-ed easily to the backpack straps. The patches and straps are really great quality. There are so many great Gutzies to pick from, and of course my girls need more. Look at all those empty spaces! I have a feeling I will be doing some Gutzy shopping before school starts.

If you want to learn more about Gutzy Gear or purchase some for your kids visit their website and their Facebook page. They also have a great page with free fun downloads for kids!

One of my readers will have a chance to win their own Gutzy Gear Starter Kit. The kit will include two straps and six packs of patches, with two patches each. This giveaway will be U.S. only. Enter for your chance to win on the rafflecopter below!
