#GBTravelSafe Infant Car Seat Sweepstakes! Win a $500 BabiesRUs GC.

**I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for GB. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

There’s a big difference between having your baby all nice and snug in the womb, and after birth when you have to trust their safety to a car seat.  We researched for weeks to find the right car seats for our twins, and then to find a place that would help make sure we’d installed it correctly!  Car seats are one of the baby care items you can NOT skimp on!  We did our best to find the right one – a convertible car seat – and realized when we put the girls in them for the first time that we hadn’t properly taken into account that even though the twins were full term (39 weeks), they were both kind of shrimpy compared to average infant sizes! The seats were a tad too large and needed adjustments made until the babies grew a bit more.  We also found that we needed a mirror in the back seat so we could see them reflected in the rearview while they were still in the backwards facing stage.

And please remember: DO NOT BUY USED CARSEATS!  You just don’t know what kind of inner structural damage they could have if they’ve already been in a crash – and you’ve got no way of truly knowing if they have or not.  Also, REGISTER your carseat, so the manufacturer has a way to get in touch with you in case of recalls.

Organic India Moringa Leaf – for the mommy with the nutritional deficit!


Does this sound familiar to any other mom (or dad) out there:

You make every effort to get healthy food down the gullets of your little precious one, but when it comes to your own well-being, really – can you honestly say that the same amount of nutritional foodstuffs makes it into your own tummy?  Or do you sometimes realize that you’re making do with on-the-go, convenient things, maybe of somewhat dubious nutritional quality because you’re just so darn overloaded and overwhelmed taking care of everyone else that you, yourself, get short shrift?

That’s me.  I’m getting better at realizing that taking care of my health is just as much a priority as my kids, but I’m still in the habit-formation stage of putting it into practice.  So anything that makes it easier to ingest things of a higher nutritional value is something I want in on!

Last year, Moringa leaves popped onto my radar – commonly ground up and used to supplement the diet of people in India, Moringa leaves are chock full of amino acids, vitamins and antioxidants and in powdered form are so darn easy to add into smoothies!  They also are pretty affordable!  The brand I use, ORGANIC INDIA, is very reasonably priced.  I usually order mine from Amazon.com, but recently was very pleasantly surprised to be offered the chance by Moms Meet to try out and review their latest product – the same Moringa leaf powder I know and love – now in capsule form!


This was AWESOME!!!  ‘Cause let’s face it – when you’re REALLY pressed for time, you can’t just stand there fussing with the blender and a drippy smoothie when you’re trying to hustle the kiddos out the door to the schoolbus stop!  I’d say that I was WAY better at consistency in taking my Moringa leaf supplement in the capsule form.  Just pop 4 into my mouth, take a swig of water and down the hatch!  And later on, when I had more time, I had my trusty ol’ canister of ORGANIC INDIA Moringa Leaf powder for smoothie-making time!

If you’ve been procrastinating for awhile about changing your nutritional habits for the better, ORGANIC INDIA Moringa Leaf, either in powder or capsule form is a great and easy way to kickstart turning over a new leaf (sorry – couldn’t resist the pun! :D)!

**Gram for gram, these tiny leaves contain BIG NUTRITION!

7 Times the Vitamin C of Oranges*

4 Times the Calcium of Milk*

4 Times the Vitamin A of Carrots*

2 Times the Protein of Milk*

3 Times the Potassium of Bananas*

400 Times the Vitamin B12 of Steak*

Try A New Book! Amazon GC & Children’s Chapter Book Giveaway

The weather’s been a bit wonky this winter, hasn’t it?

Being snowbound with little ones who have a hard time putting down that electronic gizmo can be a bit trying, so I’ve decided to hold a giveaway!

Recently, we found that one of our girls (while still reading) has been reading below grade level in school.  So we made the decision to box up all under-grade-level books and comic books and stow them away until things have improved.

To help our girls gain confidence in their reading, and to ensure it was an enjoyable experience, we chose several series of 2nd-grade-level chapter books that featured some of their interests, for them to try out!

We got Scooby Doo, Puppy Place, Rainbow Magic Fairies, Black Lagoon Adventures, Cam Jansen, Magic Tree House, Bailey School Kids, Thea Stilton and Charming Ponies.

Imagine my joy when the timer ‘dinged’ on their mandatory 20 minutes and they still wanted to keep on reading longer!

To help give you a boost in finding something new to tempt your little one’s literary tastebuds, I’m offering a $5 Amazon gift card and a new paperback copy of “Goldie” the first book in The Puppy Place chapter book series (both my 7-year-old girls LOVED this one!).
