Spring has Sprung – It’s Time to Play!

*Disclosure: This is part of a sponsored collaboration with DiMe Media and Dreft.  All opinions are 100% mine.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been having a serious case of cabin fever lately. The twins are now four months old, and I feel like we never get out of the house. In fact, the only times the babies get out of the house is for church, or for a doctor’s appointment. Sad, right? Well, with the change in the weather, it’s about time we start to change that.

20160506_134836

Last week, for the very first time, I took the twins out for something other than a doctor’s appointment. We went to the ZOO! And we had a great time too. We only stayed to see a few exhibits, and the outing was anything BUT stress-free, but it was still fun.

20160506_145117

Some helpful tips for the next time you bring infants to the zoo:

  • Bring their bibs. Better yet – have a checklist of everything you need to bring. Somehow I forgot their bibs, hand sanitizer, thin blankets, and a few other items. I totally should’ve made a list.
  • Keep the sunscreen out of your baby’s eyes. Not proud of this one, but it happened. I think she must’ve rubbed her face while the sunscreen was still wet, and rubbed her eye at the same time. We got LOTS of stares during her scream-fest. Be real careful about this one.
  • Related – Keep babies out of direct sunlight. Another one of the things I forgot was sunhats, and the car seat covers I had were made out of thick material. It was TOUGH to keep them out of the sun. According to Dr. Dyan Hes, mom and medical director of Gramercy Pediatrics, babies younger than 6 months, like mine, should be kept out of direct sunlight. You can protect your baby from sun exposure by dressing him or her in protective clothing, a hat with a brim and sunglasses.
  • Don’t visit the zoo alone with infant twins. I had my mom with me, and there’s no way I would have survived the day without her.

Overall, though, it was a really good trip. Seeing some animals with the family, and being able to bring the twins was awesome. And the warm, sunny day sure didn’t hurt either.

Although I’m loving the fact that the weather is getting nicer, I am aware that the spring season brings more allergens to the air and rising temperatures can trigger skin irritations for little ones. Keeping this in mind, it’s important that we seek out products that are gentle on baby’s sensitive skin. My kids are no stranger to this either. They’ve had sensitive skin since birth, and I’m afraid the change in seasons might further irritate their skin. Couple that with our recent zoo trip where I forgot their bibs and they got super-dirty. All my fault, of course. But regardless, parenthood and babyhood is messy. But those messy and imperfect moments are often the most memorable and thanks to Dreft, we, as parents, can embrace the mess of #Amazinghood. Because, let’s face it- parenthood is pretty amazing.

Thankfully, we do use Dreft* for all our baby laundry. Did you know that Dreft is the #1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians and the #1 dermatologist recommended brand for baby clothes? Yeah, it’s pretty awesome. Cleaning our babies’ clothes with a gentle, hypoallergenic product, like Dreft, is one of the ways we help keep them comfortable, and their clothes clean, during the spring season.

Taking Care of Twins: Sick Just Got Real™

As many of you know (and some of you might not), I recently had TWINS, which is so awesome. They are everything I have never known that I always wanted. Pure perfection. They are boy/girl fraternal twins that are literally different in every way. Different, but still perfect.

What is not so perfect, is the crying. One crying is fine, but when they both get going – find the ear plugs because it gets LOUD. That’s one thing I’m still learning how to navigate with these twins, caring for them at the same time when they’re distressed. I can only be one one physical space at a time so, more often than not, the one crying the loudest will likely be taken care of first. It’s tough being the quiet one.

That being said, I can’t even imagine what life is going to look like when they both get sick at the same time. Crying that can’t be controlled by soothing, feeding, or changing is rough with just one baby – I can’t even imagine with two! Do they have nannies that just come in when a kid is sick? If so, I totally want to hire one of those! HA!

As unrealistic as a “Sick Nanny” may be, do you ever find yourself wishing for the impossible when handling sick kids? I saw this video and thought it was dead on! #AMomCanDream, right?

Obviously, we just want our kids to be healthy, but it would be nice to have that wine on tap, wouldn’t it?

So far, I just have one sick kid in the house so I can confidently say that Sick Just Got Real™! I had to visit the ER with my son today, only to find out that he has croup and there is nothing that doctors can do about it. It IS contagious though, so I might find out just how real sick can get with TWO sick babies real soon!

To help you out when you can say Sick Just Got Real™, I’m giving away a $25 Visa gift card, provided by the good folks over at Pfizer.

Sparkle and Shine with CoverGirl and Walmart + a {GIVEAWAY}

Disclosure: The Walmart gift cards and information have been provided by P&G, however, all opinions are 100% my own.

I typically don’t wear a lot of makeup. Partly because it takes so much time, and partly because I can never get it to look right. My teenage daughter, however, has watched enough YouTube videos and spent enough hours in front of the mirror to be as close to an expert as you can get. It’s amazing what can be done with a little makeup.

It’s important to look great so you can feel great, and I tend to rely on CoverGirl cosmetics the most when shopping for makeup. I enlisted my daughter’s help for this post – being the makeup expert that she is and tasked her with picking up a few items from Walmart, then using them to look fab. So easy for her.

Walmart_Cover Girl

The items we chose were:

CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

Designed to max out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big-lash look. It also has a patented volume-boosting hypoallergenic mascara formula.

CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner Pencil

Self-sharpening and glides on easily so you get the perfect line every time. It also includes a smudger tip and gives you control and versatility.

CoverGirl CG Smoothers Pressed Powder

Helps minimize the appearance of imperfections for a beautiful, smooth complexion.

See how easy she makes it look?

Celebrating Baby’s “Firsts” with Pampers + a GIVEAWAY #PampersPrimerasVeces

Disclaimer: This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Pampers.  All opinions are 100% mine.

I think every mother remembers when their children were born. The first time you saw their face, held them close, and kissed their chubby cheeks. I don’t think any parent would deny the love at first sight feeling. You are, quite literally, enamored the second your eyes meet. There’s no other feeling like it. I’ve had two kids now – with an 11-year age gap – and each time was just as special. Granted, they were special for very different reasons, but each in their own way.

Newborn-First-Blocks

My daughter provided me with the greatest gift ever – my first time becoming a mom. I was young, and so in love with her. I got to experience all the motherhood firsts like her first tooth, first time crawling, first time walking – and now that she’s a teenager, her first time driving a car. *YIKES!*

Teen Driver

She’s taught me so much about life (mostly patience), and every day seems to be an adventure. We’ve been through ups and downs…many of them…but I know that everyday with her is a gift. I’m still experiencing “firsts” with her – 16 years later!

Baby-First

With my son, I had already experienced baby firsts, but he gave me so much more. As my first (and only) boy, there was a lot for me to get used to, but my one regret with him was his first haircut. And not getting it sooner. A LOT sooner! This unruly, curly, fuzz ball of a head of hair was with us until right after his first birthday. #momfail

Haircut-First-Curls

As the #1 choice of hospitals in North America* and the first diaper worn by millions of babies, Pampers Swaddlers comforts and protects babies through their entire journey of firsts, helping to ensure their happy, healthy development. And Pampers Swaddlers now comes up to a size 6!
*Based on sales data

Pampers-Logo

Pampers understands there is nothing more joyful or rewarding than the precious first-time moments shared by little ones and their families. In honor of this special journey, Pampers has released a compilation video entitled “Firsts” that highlight those wondrous “first” experiences together. From the first time parents see their little one on a sonogram to the first evening home from the hospital, the Pampers “Firsts” video showcases precious, heart-felt moments babies and parents share together.

Join @PampersLatinoUS and Latina Mom Bloggers on Thursday, February 12th at 6 pm PST/9pm EST for a Twitter party to celebrate Valentine’s Day and baby’s firsts! Prizes include a Canon DSLR Camera, an ERGOBaby Carrier, gift cards and more! To be eligible to win prizes, you must RSVP at LatinaMomBloggers.com.
Pampers recognizes that all first moments, no matter how big or small, are moments to be cherished and celebrated. Pampers is honored to be a part of the journey of firsts for millions of families around the world every day. That’s why they want to offer one of my readers a Pampers Prize Pack!

GIVEAWAY!

One lucky Thoughts from Her reader will receive a Pampers Prize Pack celebrating #PampersPrimerasVeces that includes:

  • My First Valentine’s Day Bib
  • Pottery Barn Stroller Blanket

GIVEAWAY: Win a Britax B-Safe 35 Car Seat #BabySafeConBritax

Disclosure: As a Britax Latina Blogger/Advisory Board Member (and in partnership with Mami Innovative Media), this post is part of a sponsored outreach. All opinions expressed are my own.

Last month I wrote about the Britax car seats that were deemed a “Best Best” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).  I personally own the Pinnacle™ ClickTight, and couldn’t be happier with its performance.  But those seats were booster seats for older kids and I’m sure some of you were wondering “Hey, what about the little babies?”.  Well, I am pleased to announce that now, Britax is introducing new infant car seats that protect wee ones with leading safety technologies.

The new Britax B-Safe 35 Elite and B-Safe 35 infant car seats allow the newest members of the family to stay safe and comfy on the go. Parents can travel with confidence knowing that their babies can ride in the highest level of safety with Britax SafeCell Impact Protection, an integrated system of safety components that protects infants beyond government standards. The new SafeCenter LATCH Installation also provides peace of mind with a simple installation of these lightweight, streamlined infant seats.

“The new B-Safe 35 Elite offers the latest Britax safety technologies, a more modern design, and a higher weight capacity,” said Brandon Miller, senior product manager at Britax. “The advantages of our best-in-class safety and convenience features make either the B-Safe 35 Elite or B-Safe 35 the perfect choice for baby’s first ride home and beyond.”

What’s even better is that you can install these seats with confidence.  Britax designed both the B-Safe 35 Elite and B-Safe 35 to install with ease, featuring the SafeCenter LATCH Installation, which offers center-pull straps that cinch down quickly and tuck safely out of the way for stress-free installation. The Easy-On/Easy-Off LATCH Connectors feature a simple button to release both connectors. For proper positioning in the vehicle, parents will know instantly if the seat is at the correct angle by using the Dual Level Indicators and the one-handed, Spring-Assisted Recline. The infant seats can also be easily installed using the vehicle seat belt and the integrated lock-offs in the base. To ensure the best harness fit as the child grows, the B-Safe 35 Elite also features a Quick-Adjust Harness that can be lengthened with the push of a button.

These car seats are also compatible with Britax stroller lines, making family travel much easier.  New parents can move in comfort and style when pairing the B-Safe 35 Elite or B-Safe 35 with any Britax stroller as a Travel System, which offers flexibility and comfort to suit any lifestyle. Parents will appreciate the Click & Go integrated adapter system, which creates compatibility with all Britax strollers, including the Affinity, B-Ready and all B-Agile models. Both seats feature a one-handed, quick-release handle for simple and safe detachment from the strollers. Either seat is also compatible with the BOB jogging strollers, with use of an infant car seat adapter. Family travel doesn’t get any easier.

GIVEAWAY: Win a Britax BEST BET Car Seat this Holiday Season #BritaxBestBet

Disclosure: As a Britax Latina Blogger/Advisory Board Member (and in partnership with Mami Innovative Media), this post is part of a sponsored outreach. All opinions expressed are my own.

As parents, it’s a given that we all want what’s best for our kids.  You want them to eat healthy, go to a good school and, above all else, we want our kids to be safe. My four-year-old is a big kid, and putting him in the right booster seat was important to me – but it is so hard to choose which seat would be best for him.  Lucky for us, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), wants our kids to be safe too, and they’ve released a “Best Bet” booster seat category letting parents know which car seat choice would likely be their…well…best bet.

A record 27 new boosters earn highest IIHS rating

I have long been an advocate of Britax products, and I am super-proud to report that every Britax Harness-2-Booster seat earned a “BEST BET”, the top rating from the IIHS.  IIHS reviewed and rated three Britax seats — the Pinnacle™ ClickTight, Frontier™ ClickTight and Pioneer™ combination Harness-2-Booster seats— along with 41 other new for 2014 seats from various other manufacturers.  In fact, we even own a Britax Frontier and we love it – even more so now that we know that it’s one of the safest out there!

Britax Frontier 90

The IIHS rated the Britax Harness-2-Booster seats as “BEST BETs,” along with Britax’s belt-positioning booster seats, because in almost any car, minivan or SUV, they correctly position lap and shoulder belts on typical 4-to-8-year-olds.  And, as a mom of a beautiful 4-year-old boy, that means a lot to me.

Some of my favorite features of these “Best Bet” car seats include:

  • ClickTight Installation System makes car seat installation as simple as buckling a seat belt so that now everyone can install with REAL confidence in just a few easy steps.
  • True Side Impact Protection provides deep side walls and a head restraint with energy-absorbing EPP foam to distribute crash forces, shield from vehicle intrusion, and contain the head, neck and body while keeping them “in true” or aligned.
  • Base with SafeCell Technology designed to keep your child safe and secure in a crash by compressing and significantly lowering the center of gravity, reducing the forward movement of the car seat

Now, on to the good stuff…

GIVEAWAY

Want to win a Britax Best Bet?  One lucky Thoughts from Her reader will receive ONE of the #BritaxBestBet carseats, valued at over $300*:

    • Britax Frontier 90
    • Britax Pinnacle 90

Take the Febreze #Noseblind Challenge + a $60 AMEX Gift Card #Giveaway

Disclosure: This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Ever notice how you walk into someone’s house and instantly you can smell something a little funky?  Whether it’s ethnic food (I use lots of Latin spices when cooking so I’m sure my home is guilty of this too), or dirty laundry, or just…something that you can’t quite pinpoint?  And you think “Eww…how can they live like that?!?! Are they completely noseblind?”

image

Noseblind is the gradual acclimation to the smells of one’s home, car, or belongings, in which the affected does not notice them (even though their guests do).  For example: I can’t attend Book Club this week. Nancy is completely noseblind to the fact that her house smells like a feral cat shelter.  Right?  Ever had that experience?  There’s a whole scientific process to it too.

    • You cook fish.ODOR ADAPTATION: your nose’s physical response that normalizes new smells
    • You get used to the fishy smell.ODOR HABITUATION: a re-programming of your brain’s process to all but ignore a smell
    • Your guests arrive, smell only fish, and judge you for it.ODOR INFESTATION: what your guests overwhelmingly smell as soon as they walk in the door

Febreze-Noseblind-Products

We’ve all been there, I think.  I decided to test this noseblind theory by holding a “ Febreze Noseblind Challenge” in my home (with my fingers totally crossed that the results wouldn’t show that my house totally reeked!).  I invited a couple of friends over to watch a movie and to test the odors that were apparent in my home.  Would it be the cleaning products I used to power-clean before my guests arrived (we’ve all done that, right?), or would it be the popcorn that I just popped in the microwave before the start of the movie?  Truth:  The popcorn scent masked the cleaning products.

Febreze-candle-meadow-rainThen I lit a Febreze Meadows & Rain candle and we watched a movie – a total chick flick, of course – and took another survey afterwards to see what scent prevailed then.  Survey says: Febreze!   The candle, in one of my favorite scents, totally masked any other scent in my home.  Febreze contains a molecule known as Cyclodextrin that traps and eliminates the bad odors and leaves behind a pleasant scent.  I definitely know what I’ll be using from now on when I’m having guests over!

Febreze offers a collection of “Noseblind Approved” products to help you eliminate bad odors in your home.  While my favorites are the candles and plugins, I also loved the aerosol spray to mask those odors in a jiffy.

Febreze_MedRain

So, now that you know what it takes to have a fresh-scented home, Febreze would like to equip you with the necessary essentials to overcome your noseblindedness.  One lucky winner will receive a Febreze Essentials Prize Pack that includes 4 full-size products – and a $60 AMEX GIFT CARD!  Just fill out the easy Rafflecopter form below to enter.

thinkThin Lean Protein & Fiber Bars {$25 Gift Card Giveaway}

image

Whenever I think about healthy granola bars, or protein bars, my first, honest, knee-jerk thought is… EWW.  I have tried some in the past that were advertised as “chocolate” or something else really delicious, and have actually tasted like they were just dug out of the ground.  I think it goes without saying that I have never been a fan.

thinkThin Lean Protein & Fiber Bars Ingredients

When I was asked recently if I wanted to try some thinkThin Lean Protein & Fiber Bars I was really nervous.  Naturally I was a bit apprehensive, given my experience with healthy bars in the past.

image

When I opened my first one, the thinkThin Crunch Chocolate Dipped Mixed Nuts, I first smelled it and scrutinized every nutty detail before taking a bite.  If I got a sniff of anything that remotely smelled like protein powder, I guarantee that it wouldn’t have passed my lips.  But it didn’t smell funky at all, and you could actually see the real ingredients in this bar, so I took my first bite.

Blown away.

This bar was so tasty, I could seriously eat one every single day.  And that says a lot coming from me – a person who generally does not like healthy bars of any kind.

I tried a few more bars from thinkThin, like the High Protein Bar in the Chunky Peanut Butter…

image

and the Lean Protein & Fiber Bar in the Salted Caramel flavor…

image

and ALL of them were pretty good.  The other bars did not have the natural texture of the thinkThin Crunch bar, but they were still tasty.

About thinkThin Lean Protein & Fiber bars

At only 150 calories, thinkThin Lean Protein & Fiber bars deliver the perfect balance of 10g of protein and 5g of fiber to give you energy, and help keep you full and satisfied.  They are made with 100% non-GMO ingredients in decadent flavors, these new bars are also low in sugar and gluten-free … making them deliciously guilt-free.  They are available in 5 delicious flavors: Chocolate Almond Brownie, Chunky Chocolate Peanut Butter, Salted Caramel, Honey Drizzle Peanut, and Cinnamon Bun White Chocolate – and they are all delicious!
