Dream Team Pets- Review
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
Dream Team Pets is much more than a bedtime toy-it's an innovative kid's sleep aid that helps end the bedtime battles of trying to keep your child in bed. Developed with the help of a pediatrician, Dream Team Pets bedtime routine empowers kids as they reward their Pet with stickers and a certificate for a good night's sleep. If the child wakes up from a nightmare, there are no hard feelings because the responsibility is on their Pet, but when they successfully sleep in their own bed, the kids feel a sense of accomplishment as they reward their Dream Team Pet. What makes this unique is that the kids think they are training their Pet, but really they are sleep training themselves!

Do you have a nightly wake-r? My son is waking up in the middle of the night and coming to my room to "cuddle." I am trying to break this habit but when your tired and sleepy it's easy to roll over and just let him sleep in my bed, until it gets uncomfy and then I end up getting up and carrying him back to his bed.
We have been trying to train our Lion from Dream Team Pets. At three years old he did not catch on to the training part of this toy as much as I wished he would have. I am still going to have to work on keeping him in his bed till morning but till then we do have this great book with an adorable lion stuffed animal that he named, Cookie. Each night I try to remind him that Cookie is his new cuddle bug if he wakes up so he can cuddle him instead of finding me. Let me be honest... it is still a work in progress!
I have enjoyed the idea behind Dream Team Pets. The stuffed animal is now one of my son's favorites to sleep with and it is small and very soft. The book is very brief and to the point so it is easy to read and reread each night.

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray. They are a bit similar but yet different. Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1. Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2. Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid. Mix well. 3. Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4. Go have fun!!! This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week. I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general. I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry. I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes. :) Ready, Set, Go! Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
