Netflix Introduces New Kids Programs #NetflixKids

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of NETFLIX.

I don’t really like for my daughter to be in front of the TV too much.  We didn’t allow her to watch TV at all until she was 18 months old.  Since then she’s watched it on a limited basis but she does have favorite TV shows.  Because her favorite shows aren’t on constantly we looked to Netflix.  Netflix streams kids videos and TV shows 24/7.  It’s such a life saver!

Watching TV

 Netflix is great for cuddle time!

I usually watch a 30 minute show with my little one in the morning while I wait for my meds and coffee to kick in.  After that we play and don’t go back to the TV until the next morning.  Occasionally, I’ll use it as a babysitter but only briefly!  For instance, today I had to work in the kitchen, running back and forth, with the oven door open and I didn’t want to chance her coming in.  It worked wonders and as soon as I was finished we turned it off and went to playing with her kitchen.

Road Trip

 The Netflix app would be great to rescue kids from the boredom of long road trips!

We’ve had a Netflix subscription since a few months after we were married.  We love it and use it daily!  We have our favorite TV show reruns we’ll watch like Psych, whole series’ like 24, old Jimmy Stewart movies, new action flicks, and, of course, now that we have a little one in the house we’re partial to the cartoons on demand and the Disney movies!

Netflix has recently added new content from Hasbro, Disney Jr. and Cartoon Network. Explore the TV shows and movies available from these networks and find your family favorite from the list below:

Piggy Paint – Non-Toxic Nail Polish & Giveaway Ends 4/9/13

I’m so very excited that I don’t really know where to begin.  I guess I’ll start at the beginning!  Mom Central asked me if I wanted to participate in a campaign they were hosting for Piggy Paint.  I jumped at the chance because 1) I love nail polish, 2) I love Piggy Paint nail polish!

Piggy Paint Colors

If you haven’t heard of Piggy Paint nail polish let me tell you all about it.  It’s incredible!  It was made by moms for moms.  Once upon a time, a mom was painting her daughters nails on a styrofoam plate and she noticed that the nail polish that spilled on the plate actually ate through the plate.  It was at that time that she decided to research nail polish and make her own nail polish for her kids.  That lady was Melanie Hurley and her nail polish is Piggy Paint.

Piggy Paint vs Solvent Nail Polish

Piggy Paint is a water-based polish that is specially formulated of natural ingredients. Finally, a kid-friendly, pregnant-mama polish!  They say it’s as natural as mud!  It is free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone…and it’s made in the USA!  Check out their cute new spring colors:

Piggy Paint

(From left to right)  Girls Rule, Forever Fancy, Dragon Tears, Tea Party for Two, Sometimes Sweet, Jazz it Up, Ice Cream Dream, & Mac-n-Cheese Please.  Aren’t those cute names?  Speaking of cute…check out my little girl!

Cuteness Nailed!

I think she’s cute but I might be more than a bit biased.  She loved having her nails painted!  I was worried because I’ve never painted them before.  We played with the bottles all week and worked on her colors with them.  (So far she can say them all except orange!)  Then on Saturday I got my hair dryer out and sat in the floor.  She sat in her little red rocking chair and held perfectly still while I painted each nail.  Then I held her hand and sang the ABC song twice while I blew her nails dry.  The song and hair dryer helped keep her distracted and she was happy the whole time.  I occasionally blew it in her face and she liked that.  Then we painted the other hand and repeated the drying process.  Perfect nails without a smudge!  The bottle recommends two coats but one coat covered well and I didn’t want to press my luck.

Piggy Paint Completes the Outfit

Here’s a picture of my little princess with her Daddy.  Her nail polish matched her Easter dress perfectly and everyone at church commented on her nails.  I was surprised how well the nail polish stayed on considering it’s a water-based polish.  It stayed on for two good days before it began chipping at all which is all I would expect anyway.  I think there’s going to be a lot of fingernail painting in our future…and I’m excited about it!

Get Affordable Spring Style with Cookie’s Kids #CBias #CookiesKids

It’s almost Spring here in North Carolina folks and I’m excited!  While we’re still having a good number of cool and down right cold days, we’ve had enough a few really warm days to get me in the mood for springtime.  I’m not ready to put away our sweaters and coats yet but I am ready to shop for warmer clothes.  You never know when another heat wave will come, right?

 

I don’t have to worry about shopping for new clothes for myself because I have enough clothes from last season to make due for now.  My husband is the same as me but our daughter is a different story.  She is growing like a weed!

 

Buying clothes for kids can sometimes be difficult.  You don’t want to sacrifice quality for cost.  Kids will be kids and will wear out cheap clothes but paying top dollar for clothes seems crazy when they grow out of them so fast.  That usually means I shop the clearance racks at stores that have better made clothes.  While I like shopping and I enjoy doing this, I don’t always want to leave my house to shop.  That’s why I am excited to tell you about a new online kid’s clothing store that is incredibly affordable with well made clothes!  I couldn’t believe the prices!

 

Cookie's Kids Clothes

 

Together Cookie’s Kids and Social Fabric gave me $30 to spend at Cookie’s Kids so that I could review my shopping experience.  While I was excited about shopping at a new store I thought, “$30?  You’ve got to be kidding me? That won’t be enough for an entire outfit.”  Well, it was!  $30 bought two outfits and a pair of shoes!

 

Cookie's Kids Cart

 

Cookie’s Kids has an easy to navigate site, great prices, and brand name clothes.  Yep, you read that right, brand name clothes!  Carter’s, Ralph Lauren, & Young Hearts just to name a few.

 

Cookie's Kids Outfit

I bought two outfits that I thought would be perfect to interchange with each other and a pair of shoes to match them both.  I bought the shoes in a bigger size than she wears right now so she can enjoy them in both Spring and Summer.  I was excited for her to try these on and I’m very pleased that they look just like I thought they would!

 

Cookie's Kids Clothes

 

Isn’t she stylish?  This is the first time she’s tried on skinny jeans but I think she wears them well!  I love all the detail on these outfits.  This one has plastic rhinestone buttons and a cute front tied belt.  The other outfit has embroidered designs and a belt to match.  You can’t see the belt in the picture above but go to my Cookie’s Kids Google+ album to view that and more!

Choosing a Potty Training Seat

potty seat

 

As I’ve announced before, I’m in the early stages of potty training my daughter and today I’m ready to buy a potty seat.  One of my friend’s daughter is 18 months and she pottied in the toilet for the first time today and that has me motivated.

 

When looking for a potty seat I first found the ever popular Baby Bjorn toilet trainer.  This has great reviews and has been around for a while so it should be the obvious choice, right?  I thought so too until I saw the new Arm & Hammer Secure Comfort Potty Seat.  It also has great reviews but it’s about $20 cheaper and comes with an air freshener and handles.  I’m excited about the handles. Isn’t that a great idea?!

 

The Baby Bjorn toilet trainer is $33 on Amazon and the Arm & Hammer Secure Comfort Potty seat is only $11 + Free Prime Shipping with $25 total purchase.  I’m strongly leaning toward the Arm & Hammer Potty Seat but before I make my purchase I wanted to run this by ya’ll and see which one ya’ll preferred and any pros and cons you have.

 

Little Looster's Looster Booster

 

Oh, and I also found this awesome little step stool for kiddos.  It’s called the Little Looster’s Looster Booster and is on sale now at Amazon for $34.50 + free prime shipping.  That means if I buy this and either one of the potty seats they’ll both ship for free.  This looks pretty incredible but I’m open to any potty step stool advice you may have too.  Thanks in advance for any advice you share!!

 

Oh, by the way!

If you know my husband very well you probably know that he likes to goof off and play around.  Part of that includes singing.  Singing constantly.  Not too many of them are songs you would actually know but a few are.  Most of them he makes up to the melody or rhythm of other songs but by my request he won’t make a parody of George Strait or Alabama.  {Is it melody or rhythm?  I have no clue about music!}  The only exception was when he rewrote George Strait’s song, Baby’s Gotten Good at Goodbye.  The original lyrics are, “That’s got me worried thinking maybe my baby has gotten good at goodbye” and his lyrics are, “That’s got me worried thinking maybe my baby is having her baby tonight.” I promise I had that song stuck in my head during labor!  I love him!  If you’re still reading, you can tell by now that this is one of those personal babbling type posts that probably won’t add much to your life but I hope it’s fun to take a peek inside mine. : )

 

Where was I?  Oh yes, my husband likes to sing. A lot.  Whenever we are going throughout the course of our day and one of us will accidentally say a line from a song he’ll start singing the song. It’s pretty fun actually!  I’ve always done this in my head but now I’m married to someone who does the same thing, except out loud.  I love it!  If you have no clue what I’m talking about, here’s an example.  While writing the fourth sentence to this paragraph {The third, if you don’t count “A lot.” as a sentence} I typed, “Whenever we” and I started singing in my head, “Whenever we go out, the people always shout, “There goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt!” Na na na na na na na.”  It’s really a wonder that I get anything done!

 

One of the songs my husband frequently sings is By the Way by Joe Scruggs.  I’ve heard him sing this song for years now so I know all of the words but today he messaged me excited that he had finally found a video of the song so I could hear it.  It’s a cute song, here are the lyrics to it!

 

By the Way

It’s Monday morning,
I’m running late,
There’s not a minute to spare.
Mom calls out, “Come on, let’s go,”
As she finishes drying her hair.
Now I’m in my place with a smile on my face,
Just thinking about my day,
Then I think of some things I’m supposed to bring,
And that’s when I say,
“Dear Mom, oh, by the way,
I need an orange juice can,
Four cotton balls, and
Six rubber bands,
And by the way, I’m an angel in the play,
I’m gonna sing and I need some wings.
Well, I guess I’ve induced some stress
Mom’s smile begins to fade,
And she runs to the kitchen and digs though the trash for the can from the lemonade.
Now I start to protest but she’s doing her best so then I try to make it right…
I say, I need everything by 8:15. BUT I don’t need the wings till tonight.
Oh by the way, I need an ORANGE juice can, if it’s lemonade will the teacher understand?
And by the way they’re having meatloaf today,
if you don’t mind a bunch…I’m gonna need a lunch.
Sometimes I just don’t believe how resourceful mom’s can be.
She gets the cotton balls and the rubberbands from her vanity.
I’ve got a lemonade can not quite the right brand, but mom says ‘It will do.’
Then we’re out of the door it’s 7:54, I won’t be late for school.
Oh by the way, meatloaf is better than it seems…
for my lunch mom packed a can of sardines.
And for the play it’s sisters costume from ballet I’m gonna sing in her butterfly wings.”

 

Ha! Ha!  Isn’t that awesome?  I can see why my husband loves it so.  How many parents of elementary school children have not lived that morning before at least once?  If you can’t identify with this song from your present circumstances in life, maybe you can remember doing that to your parents at one time or another.  I know I sure can!  My poor Mom put up with so much.  Mom, if you’re reading this, I love you!

 

Doing a little research I found that Joe Scruggs got his singing career started by writing songs for his wife’s kindergarten class.  Who knows, maybe my husband will be the next great parody song writer?  I really think he would do awesome at it.  He’s got some good ones!  Weird Al, are you listening?  If you need any ideas, I know someone who can help!
