Recon Chat Turtle Beach Headset and Giveaway!! #reconchat #turtlebeach

My son is a gamer. I use to think he shouldn’t play the game so much, now I realize how blessed I really am. Due to his gaming and ability to talk to people all over the world, he became interested in traveling.

His favorite is the Recon Chat for his PS4, he would spend time talking to others from all over and decided after graduation he wanted to travel the world so he joined the Navy. I have an amazing code to use C8C77LR7 to sign up for 6 months of premium Dashlane! So don’t miss out!!

He continued his love of gaming and continued using his PS4 and Turtle Beach Recon Chat even while serving our country. He loves how easy it is to use, the convenience and fit of the Recon Chat is by far the best. He was able to pack it and take it all over the world with him since it’s light weight and small enough.

Fortunately, he is home now after serving his 4 years and is now in college for Engineering and yes, he still loves gaming. He still chats with others during his games and still hears his game effects with no problems. He wears glasses and says this set is awesome in that it doesn’t push on his glasses. His passion for gaming has made him realize the importance of having the best and most comfortable equipment, that is why this Recon Chat is his favorite.

He didn’t even realize how much better made this new Recon Chat was until he tried it! You can even find it for the Xbox One! He said it fits over his glasses and his ears and that helps the comfort.

Turtle Beach is by far the leader in the console of gaming headsets, after trying many others, this by far is his favorite!

Now for the fun part, if you like gaming or know someone who does, check out this amazing giveaway and don’t forget to share it! You can have the opportunity to win the PS4 or XBOX Recon Chat from Turtle Beach!!

8 Gift Ideas for Father’s Day – Handmade Free Printable Memories!!

Father’s day is June 18th this year. I started wondering why we celebrate father’s day besides the obvious reason, we love our father’s and appreciate them! After a little digging I found this:

“On June 19, 1910, the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day.” However, it was not until 1972, 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official, that the day became a nationwide holiday in the United States.” (http://www.history.com/topics/holidays/fathers-day)

I know when my kids were little, the homemade gifts are what my husband wanted and are still around, and looked at from time to time. We are now grandparents and my husband still says I want a picture or I want to spend time with them. The older we get the more we realize memories are all we really want in life! The other gifts, even the expensive ones we tend to forget but those homemade with love gifts, we still have!

I have found some cute ideas that the kids can participate in for this father’s day and even a few printable ones!

Swimways Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy – National Learn to Swim Day May 20, 2017

  • This post was sponsored by SwimWays as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

I have 3 grandsons under the age of 3 and water is a big concern for our family. At our home, we have a huge pond in the backyard and at our condo, we have a pool. We realize the importance of our grandsons learning to swim asap!

We taught our 3-year-old grandson using the Swimways Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy baby float and are now working on the 20-month-old, Tanner. I love the fit and comfort of these floats and the assurance of the cover to keep him from getting those sun rays!

The canopy has UPF 50+ sun protection with easy to remove or add, on and off snaps. The sides of the Swimways have a mesh material so that you are able to see the child in the Swimways the entire time they are in it. This Swimways Baby Spring Float is for ages 9 months to 24 months, so you are able to use it throughout the swimming season. Tanner loved that he was able to splash around and kick with no fear of tipping over. He is a big baby and this wide seating fits him perfectly.

As a middle school teacher, on a couple of occasions, I was made aware of middle school students drowning. This devastated the whole community, as you can imagine. I always think back to my family and how important water safety is!

Mark your calendars for this important date!! Or start sooner but please make sure your children learn water safety!

National Learn to Swim Day will be held on May 20, 2017.

After I began using the Swimways baby spring float sun canopy, my grandson, Tanner, is no longer afraid of the water and has even moved on putting his head under and learning to hold his breath. Next, we are going to work on kicking to the side. But thanks to the Swimways we are well on our way

If you are looking for an amazing safe water float check them out at Target! They carry this, swim step 1, and swim step 2 & 3 if needed. They can help your little one become and independent swimmer.

ClearPop Rapid Earache Relief

I have always hated an earache. As an adult, it hurts, unlike any pain I have ever felt. I really dislike it when my son gets an earache. I always felt so bad and helpless, until now! The first time I realized my son was grabbing his ear and was in pain I called the doctor and requested an appointment immediately.

Since then I have found ClearPop Rapid Earache Relief, I no longer have to stress over another earache. ClearPop is an over the counter treatment. It is easy to use by simply sucking on it like a sucker.

 

 

How it Works:

Only ClearPop works from inside the mouth to effectively and safely unblock the ear and Eustachian tube for immediate pain relief without medicines. Often over-prescribed, antibiotics treat the infection but can take 24-48 hours to work, don’t directly address pain, and can have potential side effects. Analgesics only mask the pain but don’t treat the underlying issue. Externally applied drops and solutions are ineffective because they can’t penetrate to the middle ear where the problem originates. ClearPop actually stops earache pain where it starts!

 

 

Rock A Bye #Rockabyerocker

There is nothing that makes me happier than to see my grandbabies with a smile on their face!! They can light up a room with their little laughter. I love watching them learn and experience life, every day is something new. I was so excited for my youngest grandson, Ivan, to try out the new Rock A Bye Colt Pony Rocker. This rocker is so cute and fluffy, he loved sitting on it and rocking! Then he realized there were different shapes he could push for different songs to play.

Ivan has just turned 1 year old. He is a very brave little one who loves to try and do everything his older brother does. He was so excited when he saw his new toy! We were curious to see if he would get on it by himself, and sure enough, it wasn’t long before he accomplished that!

These rockers have color and shape buttons you can press to play different songs while you rock. I love working with him on the colors and shapes. As a former teacher any toy that they can learn from is A+ in my book.

 

He also received the Homer Baseball Chair Rocker, this one is so cute, you sit in the glove to rock. This rocker has ABC & 123 songs that you can rock to while learning! I love how proud Ivan is that he can crawl right up on it and fit in the glove. He will fuss at us when we try to get him off of them!

 

The age group for the rockers is 9 months to around 3 years (or 80 pounds). Because they are light weight you pick them up and move them around easily. There are a ton of designs to choose from and you can even have them personalized! Right now they are 50% off so hurry while they last. These rockers are very well made and will last a long time! They would make great Easter gifts!!

National Geographic Kids Leveled Readers #Momsmeet

I received this product from Moms Meet for review purposes, this is 100% my own opinion.

As a former middle school teacher, I can you tell you personally the difference between kids that were read to and kids that were not. Not only was their vocabulary a lot better, but they also showed a better understanding.  Children who are read to display a more curious mind and are more willing to ask questions. They learn from a young age that books tell stories and are informative.

Our grandchildren love when Mimi and Poppy read to them. They absorb everything we read. I can tell they listen because they take that information and use it later. Our oldest grandson is really interested in animals right now so we were excited to introduce the National Geographic Kids Leveled Readers to him.

The first thing they do when they come to visit is run find their favorite National Geographic for Kids Leveled Book for us to read. I usually end up reading several of them before their visit is up. They love the vibrant colors and how each book is so interesting. At the end of the book, it recaps what they learned, they love hollering out the answers, they even go to the page to show me they were right.

 

If you have a little one that loves to learn, or if you want to help them get ahead in school, reading is not only the best way but it will also help make wonderful memories with your little one! I recommend the National Geographic Kids Leveled Reading books. The are very reasonably priced! Their site also has free printables and also some very useful information, games, and videos!!

Winter Time Games #Staples

winter-wonderland-pic-11

Baby it is cold outside!! I love this time of year, fireplace going, hot chocolate and the smell of baked goods in the oven. Nothing better, except sharing all of this with your three grandsons! I love spending time with them, usually we try and do outside activities but since it is so cold here we decided to find some fun stuff to do inside.

Thanks to Staples for supplying our games, we now have several of inside games to choose from during this winter weather.

First we absolutely love to play with Lincoln Logs.

15555579_10154337767373155_531866949_o

Not only is it fun and safe, but it helps the boys use their imagination to build things. I love how they would rather do that then watch tv! These would make an awesome Christmas gift. You can mix and match Lincoln Logs to make even bigger designs. We can play for hours just building different items. It is recommended for 3 years old and up, due to small pieces.

15536678_10154337766588155_541932572_o

The next thing we love to do while it is cold outside is draw! As a former teacher, I couldn’t wait until the grands wanted to start writing. We learn letters and numbers. As a reward after lessons, they get to play with the Spirograph Kit. This is so fun to them and they love to hang up their final design on Mimi’s fridge. I have a fridge of memories!! These are awesome for their little brains because they have the freedom to design it like they want.

15555498_10154337767903155_522221052_o

This too would make an awesome Christmas gift. It includes markers and paper in it’s own tray. Great for children who need to work on their motor skills and allows them to learn to make their own decisions by choosing their colors and designs. My favorite type of gifts!

Last we love Bounce Off, this gives them a chance to get up and move, which three little boys seem to love to do. Bounce Off is a game where you have to throw the ball in a pattern.  You draw a card telling you which pattern to use. This has been so neat to watch them grow while playing this game. The are learning so much from counting and patterns.

15536707_10154337767098155_1174708176_o

This is also my grown children’s favorite game to play with a bunch of friends, so from young to old everyone will love this!

If you think these games look fun, you should see what winter time Staples Games Terri’s playing over on Shabby Chic Boho.

I have tried to simplify my shopping this year, I love spending time over money with the grand kids, I want them to learn the importance of family and time. Staples has been a lifesaver, they have such a variety to chose from. I was able to order most of my Christmas online and save a ton of money.

If you are in need of last minute gift ideas, check these out. You will have so much fun while it is cold outside!
