Wordless(ish) Wednesday: Mommy

Being a mommy has changed me so much. The change has been for the better and I wouldn't have it any other way. Since becoming a mom I have learned that:
1) My heart is MUCH bigger than I ever thought.
2) One little smile can bring tears to your eyes and make you smile with joy at the same time.
3) Sleep is overrated.
4) There is always something to worry about.
5) Crawling around like a lion on the floor is so much more fun than going out.
6) Pushing the shopping cart through Wal-Mart making car noises is FUN! who cares what everyone staring at you thinks!
7) Boo boos hurt Mommy's just as bad, if not worse, than the little ones.
8) Dressing a baby in white is not smart. even white socks attract EVERYTHING!
9) My patience are so much bigger than I ever imagined. Only one little girl could yank my hair and scratch my face and manage to make me laugh through the whole thing.
10) The house will NEVER be clean again. When I put the toys away, they are spread out again in 2 mins tops! That's OK, I would chose toys on my floor any day.

Disney Princess Tent from Bright and Fun Toys

Ever since Little Miss learned to crawl, she loves to crawl through and under things. She goes in between the rails of the kitchen chairs, under recliners, anything that requires her to crawl through she is all about. At her first story time at the library, they had a tunnel and she LOVED it. I began searching for a good quality tunnel and finally decided on the Disney Princess Adventure Hut from Bright and Fun Toys.

I was really excited to set it up and see what her reaction would be.

The tent and tunnel are of GREAT quality for a little one. It is a fabric material and does not rip like the plastic tents. Little Miss has tromped her way all through it may times now and it is still standing very sturdy.

This product has provided Little Miss, myself, and my husband hours of entertainment. It folds very easy for easy storage and travel. We have taken this to the grandparents house with us a few times and I love how easy it is to transport. This is definitely a toy that we will have around for a while. The box says the tent is recommended for ages 3 and up, but with the material it is made of it is great for any little one.

Bright And Fun Toys has many tents and tunnels to choose from. They also have a great variety of other toys, from Inflatable Bouncers, to Pool toys.
The great thing about Bright and Fun Toys is they offer free shipping to the lower 48 states on ALL items. Visit them at or contact them toll free at (855)-423-8697.

ALSO now through May of 2013 if you use the coupon code mama15 you will receive a special discount :)

This was not a paid post and my honest opinions were used. The opinions are solely my own.  Thank you to the company and/or pr agency who supplied the product for review

Wordless(ish) Wednesday: Here we go again

I have been a BAD BAD blogger. I have not posted in a week. I blame this on lack of sleep and lack of total motivation. I seriously feel like a zombie after i get everything I need to get done during the day done.

Little Miss has been up all night for the past week. I feel like a have a little insomniac on my hands :) She just can not seem to get comfortable and nothing I do seems to help.

Today after her nap she spiked a fever of 102.8. her top gums are REALLY swollen. I feel so bad for her. I gave her Tylenol and teething tablets and it seemed to help a bit but all she wants to do is cuddle. I love when she is so cuddly, but I hate the fact that she is in pain. Any suggestions?

Here she is cuddling me and her duck outside. It was the only thing that made her happy.

Wordless Wednesday : Rest!

This is my sweet baby resting and watching one of her favorite shows, Go Diego Go. She loves Diego but has no interest in Dora, it is strange. She also loves Sesame Street. It is so cute to hear her squeal at the TV.

Her sleep schedule is getting back to normally finally. I really hope I'm not jinxing it by writing this but I pray for her sake and mine too that it continues. The past week was hard on both of us, so this is a nice change.

Meet Me On Monday :)


1. I wish _________
 that time would slow down! My little baby is growing quickly and pretty soon will be a toddler. It seems like yesterday my water broke and I was at the hospital. I love every minute I have with her and it just seems like every morning when I wake up she just looks bigger, and she seems to learn something new everyday as well. I love her so much.
2. If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
I would want to witness the birth of my little one from the side lines. As horrific as the labor was, I want to see my husbands face when she was born. I know he was full of emotion, but with my emotions and pain I did not get to experience his face when she was born.
3. Do you like to cook?

I do enjoy cooking, but not always. There are some meals that I really love to make, but others I would rather snap and have it on the plates. It all depends on my mood. On the days I don't feel like cooking, the crock pot is my best friend.

4. What do you like to do to get exercise?
I LOVE LOVE bike rides with my little family. I could spend the entire day out bike riding.

5. How tidy are you?
I am not the tidiest of people. My car usually speaks volumes on that. :)

Wordless Wednesday: Standing

Little Miss is a little monster. Her favorite thing to do now is pull up on things and let go and see how long she can stand by herself. She is getting better each day and now can stand for about a minute without losing balance. I see walking in our very near future......
