Waterproof Smock Bib - Baby To Love

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Nearly everything a baby or toddler does is messy. When my granddaughter was here in January, mealtimes were delightfully chaotic. Her parents had gotten into the habit of just taking off her clothes before meals, and they remarked they wish they had a bib that covered everything. I'm so excited that I get to send the Baby To Love Waterproof Smock Bib to them!
It is made of waterproof material, with gathers at the wrist and velcro at the back, so it can completely cover your child's shirt and arms, and when the child is placed in a highchair, it also covers their lap. It can easily be wiped down after a messy meal with a cloth or sponge, or you can toss it in the washer.
The pink heart smock is perfect for little girls and Baby To Love also offers one for boys with blue stripes. This waterproof smock is also perfect for early learning art activities, water table play, exploration with slime or shaving cream, and so many other wonderfully messy learning opportunities.
This wonderful smock bib from Baby To Love solves the problem of messy food and fun by protecting your little darling from destroying every piece of clothing. Just think how many less extra outfits you'll have to carry in the diaper bag! This Waterproof Smock is the perfect gift for parents of babies and toddlers.

PittMoss Organic Potting Mix

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
PittMoss is an organic potting mix made from recycled cellulose fibers, like newspaper. It keeps material out of the landfill, which allows gardeners to have good stewardship of our planet. The unique physical, chemical, and biological properties of PittMoss maximize the use of nutrients and water.
PittMoss is a next-generation growing media. Not only does it reduce the need for applied chemicals and water, it is made from organic and natural materials. PittMoss can be used in so many different ways. Whether you're an avid gardener, a specialty grower, or you like to mix your own potting or gardening soil to perfection, using PittMoss can dramatically improve your results.
The first thing I noticed about PittMoss was its lightweight properties. Carrying a bag of PittMoss is so much easier than carrying a bag of regular potting soil. It's also an easier medium to work with when planting, especially in planters, like my planter wagon of strawberries. PittMoss is easy to handle, easy to move around, and easy to spread around plants.
PittMoss is also less dusty than a peat-based blend. The surface area of PittMoss encourages a better balance of air and water, which acts like a probiotic for plants, helping them grow bigger and better. The recycled ingredients of PittMoss are also free of pests, insects, and diseases. I love working with PittMoss!
I've gotten around a dozen tiny strawberries from my two strawberry plants before adding PittMoss to the existing potting soil I used when I planted them a month ago. I'm so excited to see if the addition of PittMoss increases the size of the berries. I'll update my post in a few weeks to let you know!

I taught preschoolers for 25 years and there is no better way for a young child to learn than through a theme kit that incorporates activities of many kinds.

MagnaReady Men's Flannel Shirt #review #fathersday

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
To the unknowing eye, a MagnaReady shirt looks just like any other dress shirt hanging in the closet. Same collar and cuffs, same row of little white buttons down the front. But, those buttons are merely for looks. Hidden inside the placket of a MagnaReady shirt are powerful magnets that link together for a secure closure. Decorative buttons grace the exterior of MagnaReady shirts for a crisp and professional appearance without the hassle of manipulating tiny buttons into buttonholes. Available in short and long sleeve versions for men and in long sleeves for women, MagnaReady shirts can also be used as adaptive clothing for people with disabilities or conditions that limit mobility.
In the photo below, I used different lighting so I could show how magnets actually replace buttons on these dress shirts. My husband absolutely LOVES this MagnaReady flannel shirt! In fact, he liked wearing it so much the first day, that he wanted me to wash it so he could wear it again the next day. I thought it was great fun to walk up to him and rip open his shirt, then let it fall back together and magnetize itself back together!
MagnaReady dress shirts are wrinkle-free and stain resistant with barrel cuffs and a spread collar. For even more convenience they are also machine washable. Simply press the shirt closed so the magnets are stuck to each other and the shirt will tumble around the wash cycle without attaching to the machine. MagnaReady men’s shirts are available in a variety of patterns and solids in more formal long sleeve versions and casual short sleeve styles. MagnaReady women’s shirts are available long sleeved in white and stripes. These shirts are a fabulous idea for Father's Day!

Indoor Panoramic Wi-Fi Camera for Mother's Day

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
All moms want peace of mind, and this year for Mother's Day you can give that to your mom with the ALC 180-degree Indoor Panoramic Wi-Fi Camera! This compact, sleek indoor camera offers mom full 180-degree viewing, full color viewing, night vision, with motion detection and super easy DIY installation. It links to the existing router, transmits both video and audio to any smartphone or tablet on a free app, and allows communication with anyone in the room. Plus, since it records to its own micro SD card, there's no danger of footage leaking out, which often happens with other cameras. Push notifications keep mom on top of anything that happens. Best of all, it can stand it up on its own so there's no need to put any holes in walls (but it comes with mounting hardware if you want to mount it), and it's fully wireless. It also comes with a charger and instruction booklet.
Mom can keep an eye on the house while she's out running errands, watch interactions between a babysitter and the kids, tell the dog he's being a good boy, and even remind the teens to do their homework before she gets home from work. Push notifications will alert her if anyone is in the house when they shouldn't be. Mom can place it anywhere in the house and angle the camera wherever it's needed most. I know my parents would have loved to have known what was going on in the house when my teenage sisters and I got home from school to an empty house. Moms of all ages can appreciate the peace of mind of having security in the palm of her hand. I love my ALC wi-fi camera! Get your mom the ALC 180-degree Indoor Panoramic Wi-Fi Camera at Amazon.

I spent much of the winter kicking around in old cowboy boots, hauling hay and for the goats, mucking the barn out, and slushing through rain and snow. We had our first snow in October and our last snow in March; that's six months with snow! I am SO glad spring is finally here!
