Parking Pal Magnet Review and Giveaway

The Parking Pal is one of those items that I wish I would have made!  You know that kind of product that you see and you say, "Why didn't I think of that?"  

Thank-you, Busy Mom Boutique, for sending me the Parking Pal for review.  All opinions are 100% mine and I was not paid for this review.  

How many of you have more then one child and while you are getting one child in and out of the vehicle the other one is still outside.  I hope you have never had your child run out in front of a car while waiting!  It was a long time ago when my daughter was jumping around and jumped far away from our vehicle and I was thankful there were no cars around but it can be a very scary thought!   

The parking pal magnet is a simple magnet that you place on your car/truck/van that has a little hand print on it.  The child must keep their little hand on the hand-print while they wait.   I know some of you are reading this and say, "OK, my child is never going to keep his/her hand on that hand-print."  I hear you on that, but we have turned this into a game.  First, we talked about why we do it.  Second, we talked about how she was being a helper and staying safe and why it is dangerous in a parking lot.  Third, we play different games as she is waiting, such as I spy, count the red cars, sing me a song, what day of the week is it and can we sing the days of the week song, and sometimes we just carry on the conversation that we were having because now that we have done it several times it has become routine.  :)  

The Parking Pal Magnet offers 8 adorable designs so you can find the right one for your child.  I have the flowers for my girl and we have also talked about how many green, yellow, purple flowers that can be found on her magnet.  :) Shipping on the product was very quick so order today and you will have them as a great Christmas gift!  :) 

Some other great ideas on how to use your Parking Pal other then your car: 
1. Put in on your fridge as a timeout spot
2. Keep one in your purse so when you use a public bathroom you can keep your kids from crawling around the gross floor.  (or worse opening the feminine garbage, mine have done this.)

This is brilliant! I have a daughter who sometimes is purposefully defiant (attachment disorder - we're working on it!) and the hand print would be awesome since she is also a kid who seeks tactile input. Since I have a lot of kids, I might need to get a few of these! I know I would tell them that by putting their hands their, it's like charging their batteries. When Mom says we can go, we join hands and get an extra charge walking into the store together =) Thanks for sharing such a useful and smart product!

This product would help me stay more organized as I can be kind of all over the place, especially when I'm shuffling my girls and shopping bags, and I have a minivan where there all all kinds of doors and openings and "ways to escape".

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
