Oh What Fun We Have – Easy and Free to Low Cost Summer Break Ideas

Summer break has been here for about a month or so now, the kids and I are no where near ready to kill each other. I have been enjoying the Summer break quite a bit, sure the lack in routine can occasionally be a bit of a challenge for my son Aj, but overall things are going awesome! As a Mom who has been a penny pincher for as long as she can remember, I wanted to share some tips on how our family has a blast without spending any money, or maybe just a little tiny bit of money some days … I know you can do this too!

Having Summer Break fun Without Breaking the Bank

I am a huge advocate for being happy within, I truly believe if you are not happy within your own self that no one around you will be happy either. That is where Summer Break comes into play, I see every day how happy I truly am because of how happy my children are in response to my deep inner happiness. We love spending quality time together, and they trust me to work a couple hours every day from home because once my work is done, the day is OURS.

Happily Blended Summer Break Fun

Some Things that the Kids and I enjoy Doing During Summer Break Are:

  • Sitting on the deck chatting about whatever or telling funny stories to each other.
  • Taking a trip to Walmart or some other local store and having a look around, it’s always fun to check out new toys.
  • Take a scenic ride somewhere; one day we hopped in the vehicle and drove 2 hours to the ocean.
  • Make blanket forts, play with musical instruments, dress up, pick berries, or play with the ever huge collection of toys in house.

Summer Break Fun

The best part of our summer break days is that we just laugh and laugh and laugh. We are a lively bunch together, and more often than not, you can hear music playing in our home while we do chores together as a means to ensure we are doing our part to keep our household running smoothly. We laugh together, we do chores together, we are family.

What are you doing this Summer break with your family that simply makes you SMILE?

Shh…I’m Letting You In On A Light Bladder Leakage Tip! #sp

Many thanks to Poise for sponsoring today’s story, and keeping me confident!

Poise Pad Sample Kit

I have talked about light bladder leakage (LBL) before, and I am going to talk about it again. As I become more educated on LBL I am realizing that this is a pretty common, but embarrassing issue for many females. It seems that our bladders cannot always hold up their strength after we give birth or lead a very active lifestyle. Sometimes all it takes is for my child to put me into a laughing fit for me to feel it, LBL and then I get so upset because I have to change my clothing. It isn’t comfortable and it’s quite embarrassing, most days it makes me feel old. I am not old, I am only 32 years of age with three kids and a very active lifestyle. LBL should not be keeping me from my active, happy lifestyle, but sometimes it does. The great news is that LBL doesn’t have to have control of me any longer …

I want to let you in on a little secret today, about how I can control my LBL, okay so I can’t control it, but I can be more confident about it with Poise Microliner. Poise Microliner is a thin pad that doesn’t make you feel as if you are wearing a diaper, after all, you don’t want to be uncomfortable when dealing with LBL, you want to be confident. Light bladder leakage is something that cannot be handled with a tampon, it’s no good to be wearing a tampon every day of your life, I must admit before learning about Poise and LBL, I had debating wearing a tampon every day to keep that bladder leakage at bay. Obviously I made the decision to look for a product that was safe for every day use, and allowed me to continue my active lifestyle with more confidence, the Poise Microliner ended up being the product of choice for confidence with light bladder leakage.

I want to share with you all this amazing product, Poise Microliner has a free sample pad kit for you to get, simply click the image at the top of this blog post or  visit the website where you can sign up to get a free sample pad kit from Poise.  I can only hope that this product helps you be more confident with light bladder leakage in the way it has helped me!

About Poise Microliners – These shockingly thin and surprisingly absorbent liners feature SAM (Super Absorbent Material) to provide discreet Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) protection that helps keep you dry and comfortable all day long so you can manage life’s little leaks with confidence. Poise Microliners are the thinnest liners in the light incontinence category and are designed to absorb wetness, neutralize odor and stay three times drier than period liners.
