Amazon.com Subscriptions .. Oops

Okay so yeah I am a tad bit slow, anyone who knows me super well knows that I forget things often, I ramble, I talk in incomplete sentences, paragraphs and actually change subjects mid sentences. You can all thank my lovely Father for that one! Yeah, no joke, my Dad blogs .. photo blogs that is!

Anyways, back on topic here …. see? I told you I change subjects often! Amazon.com … know it? Like it? Love it? I must admit I love Amazon.com, purchased many items from them like my super tall baby gates that keep the boys in their bedroom. How about the super awesome HP Printer ink for my awesome printer?

Love it, like it, use it often, but alas one day I thought I would be all cool and get some pull ups for the now potty trained AJ. I saw a subscribe option for something and read it, didn’t seem to cost any extra money, seemed to be that this subscription thing would save me money so I said … well you don’t really want to know, because I watch my potty mouth on this blog, and I went ahead and ordered it for what I thought was some cool deal.

Let me tell you what … remember to read all sections of any “subscriptions to save money” options on any website! The other day I saw an email come through on my Blackberry telling me that my Pampers Pull ups had shipped?! Or an Amazon.com order had shipped … I was totally confused. Come to find out I subscribed to get pull ups shipped to me every month! The kid is already potty trained…. but alas I do have a two year old so I will put them to use. I did, however, go in and cancel my subscription on the hopes that I didn’t miss some fee associated with canceling the subscriptions .. please do not tell me there’s a fee to cancel!

Don’t you just love fine print?

Family Christmas Hampers For The Holidays

I have always wondered what to get my family for the holidays and one item that looks absolutely amazing and works for just about any adult on your list is christmas food hampers. Gluten free options as well as sweets for those you love! Anyone have a specific family member who loves getting items like this for the holidays?

I know that I love a good food gift for Christmas because food is a great gift for anyone. This holiday season most people are low on cash which means giving a gift that they can use and enjoy may suit your family members best. I would love to get a big christmas food hamper full of Champagne & Chocolate or a cheese lovers hamper would certainly work for me. I love me some cheese!

Have you ever given a gift like this before? I hadn’t heard of the term christmas food hamper until just recently but it makes sense to use that term for this type of gift. Adults everywhere will be wanting products like this, are you a chocolate lover or a lover of another christmas food hamper? I know that the chili lovers set would work best for my father, him and my step mother would certainly make good use of that christmas food hamper.

How Do You Determine Work at Home Schedule?

This is a topic I am struggling with lately. I want so badly to work all day and all night but I also want to be a Mommy who laughs and plays with the munchkins. Next year will be different as I will have two children in school, but while I still have two children at home with me 24/7 I know that I must tend to them first and foremost.

I had thought when we moved into the new house we would set up a new schedule, one that didn’t involve me working til the wee hours of the morning so that I could make money, do my writing {my passion} and also be a Mom who is well rested. Do you know that we have yet to truly set a schedule in place? Granted okay it’s only been a week that I’ve been back online ready to work but seriously I am ready to make a schedule.

Here is what must be taken into consideration when creating a work at home schedule:

  • Hours that your spouse work, if a spouse is in the picture.
  • Hours of extra-curricular activities for the children, if applicable.
  • Holiday, vacation time, etc that you want to plan to have off from work.
  • Hours that your children are napping or sleeping.
  • Can you afford to pay for an in home babysitter so that you can work during children awake hours?
  • Will your hours not only benefit you as an entrepreneur but benefit the family as a whole?

After you have taken into consideration all of the pros and cons as well as the family activities, school events, etc then you are able to determine a schedule that will suit your busy lifestyle. I would love to see a camera inside of every work at home parents home, why? Because then they would see that they probably ignore their children, the reason they stay at home, more often than they think. I am not in the minority here, I’ve been guilty of this …. the television is not a babysitter as much as that would totally work for a work at home parent.

So what do you do to determine a work at home schedule that suits your family’s needs/wants and so forth? I am curious to see what works for you, and if you say you have an in-law or mother/father that helps, I am totally jealous!

Giddy Up Scientific Explorer Spa Kit FUN Review

Miss Ki and I had an hour to ourselves one night and decided to try out the Giddy Up Scientific Explorer Spa Kit that Team Mom sent us. Little did this Mama know that this was going to truly be a fun learning experience, because science is the girls favorite subject!

We started off with some materials to make our own Shimmer Soap; found within the kit was soap base, dye & fragrance, glitter, measuring cup, soap mold and a stirrer. What we had to find around the house to complete our project; microwave, oven mitts and paper towel. To start we had to take the soap base out of the package and determine if it was a solid, liquid or gas.

After the soap base was melted we then had to ask ourselves whether the soap base was a solid still or some other form. Of course it was now a liquid after we nuked it in the microwave. The next steps were to mix in the dye & fragrance as well as add the glitter. All of which were liquids and solids, again another part of our learning fun!

What a sticky mess!! We both ended up with soap base on our fingers, silly girls must play with stuff all the time! It was sticky and of course HOT!

After we mixed all of the ingredients together we had to pour the mixture into the mold and wait 20 minutes for the soap to harden.

We had some fun for 20 minutes, basically it involved me listening to Miss Ki chat it up and then we had our finished product …

Okay so we had a blast quite obviously. Learning while having fun THAT my friends is what makes life the best!

Here are some key points you should know about the “Scientific Explorer” Shimmer Soap Kit;

  • Make your own soap from scratch! The Shimmer Soap Kit teaches you about matter while creating your own soapy suds.
  • This comes with four different molds so you can create a variety of shimmering shapes.
  • Available nationwide at specialty stores such as Learning Express and Giddy Up.

Suggested Retail Price: $5.99

Age Range: 8+

Available NOW – get it for the holidays!

Disclosure: I totally received this product for free from Team Mom but the opinions, the fun and all that was done by ME and MY DAUGHTER only! All opinions based on our experience with the product.
