KinderCare and your Child

   Are you looking for the safe haven for your little ones before, or after school? Or maybe your child isn't old enough for school and you need a daycare that not only takes care of your children but is also a learning experience for them.  At KinderCare they offer just that, the experience of being in a classroom and learning, they get great social skills, and are on a routine that when they do start school will assist the child in knowing how to be well behaved.  I know when my oldest was only 3 he started into a pre-Kindergarten program and it helped him out a lot.  The Pre-K program isn't as strict as going to school because they do understand that they are young but at the same time he learned that there is a time and a place for everything,  He learned how to get along with other kids and was better prepared for kindergarten when he started.

     Check out KinderCare and see if they are what you are looking for.  They will give you a tour of the facility and answer any questions you may have!  They also offer after school care for your school aged children and have great operating hours for working parents!

Purex Crystals ~Review & Giveaway~

Disclaimer: I received a free bottle of Purex Crystals limited edition Fabulously Fresh to try for myself and share my thoughts.  The opinions expressed are solely my opinions and are not biased in anyway.

     As a Mother and Wife of 4, I am NEVER caught up on doing laundry.  It seems to be one of those tasks that you almost dread doing simply because you never seem to get caught up.  It is also a daunting task when you have a bed wetter because you have added bed clothes on top of the already mountain of dirty clothes. I have tried many different things from washing the bed clothes in baking soda to remove the bad smell and just couldn't find anything that really worked.  I was washing her bed clothes twice just  to help get the smell removed.

     Until now, I haven't been able to find the perfect laundry detergent, but I have found that Purex laundry detergent gets your clothes clean, smells fresh and they are all bright.  When you add the Purex Crystals into the laundry you now have great smelling clothes that last for weeks NOT days! I have been using Purex Crystals now for many months and the detergent and the crystals are both a great price.

     Do you enjoy the fresh smell of clean laundry?  Even after you have folded them and put them away?  I do and now with the new Purex Crystals Fabulously Fresh you can enjoy the smell of Spring flowers right in your own clothes.  It not only makes your clothes smell fresh and clean but when I use it, it also makes my entire house smell fresh without any sprays or candles burning. I love anything that freshens my clothes and makes my house smell like Spring WITHOUT the pollen. Purex  Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh Crystals work great on all types of laundry from bed wetter bed clothes, to athletes uniforms.  It doesn't reduce the absorbency of your towels, and its safe enough to use on your little ones bed clothes.  Nothing is any better than crawling into your bed at night after a long day of work and inhaling that wonderful clean sheet smell, and it works all week long!

     How do you manage to maintain your laundry pile ups?  Do you do all of the laundry or do you share the chore with someone else in your house?  Since my bed wetter is 10, I have been teaching her to do laundry so she can assist me with cleaning her bed clothes.  Prior to this experience I have been the sole laundry

     Would you like to win a FREE bottle of the new Purex Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh Crystals?  All you have to do is follow the Rafflecopter instructions and I will draw a winner on 4/21/2014.  Share the post on facebook, pinterest, twitter, and any other social media group you have. One lucky winner will get a free bottle and can enjoy the same great freshness that I have!

Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap ~Review and Giveaway~

Disclaimer: I received a free sample of the Dial Deep Cleansing hand soap for review of the product ONLY, The opinions in the posts are strictly mine and no others.

     Rather you are a mechanic or just a Mother that has a lot messy cooks, the Dial deep cleansing hand soap rocks.  It has little beads in the liquid soap that not only assists in giving that awesome deep cleansing feeling but for me it also made my hands feel softer and exfoliated after each wash.  I found myself washing my hands just for the after spa feeling and the fragrance isn't over powering.

     As a Mother of 3 and Wife of 1, I stay busy all the time.  I am in the garden working with my flowers, I assist my husband with the mechanic work on the vehicles, I cut the grass and do the yard work, and of course there is the housework that has to get done.  When I tried the dial deep cleansing hand soap, I feel in love.  No matter what kind of grease or food grime I had on  my hands it cleaned very well and as I stated before gave me the after spa feeling!

Now that you know my thoughts on this wonderful product, I have some coupons I will be giving away to some of my LUCKY readers!  Just follow the instructions in the rafflecopter below.  Good Luck and enjoy!

Heart Healthy Recipes and Ideas

Disclaimer:  I wrote this post on behalf of The American Heart Association and Campbell's Soup.  All thoughts and beliefs are solely mine and were not encouraged in anyway by anyone other than myself!
     My family is probably not the picture perfect family when it comes to being healthy, However I feel that there are things that we do they are healthy.  One of our favorite past times, especially in the Spring and Summer, is that we go on family walks in the evening.  We own a Pit/Rottweiler mix dog and we take him and walk approximately 1 mile a day! In the Winter months we suffer from what I call couchitis, it is where it is so cold outside and nobody wants to go out so we stay in and watch movies or play games together.  It is actually great Family time but we don't get the much needed fresh air and exercise! Once the weather gets warmer though you can't keep us inside, we love to spend time outside together, grilling out, and just spending time as a Family!

     As a Mother I try to keep fresh fruits around the house instead of jars and bags full of candy.  When given the choice any child will choose candy but when they see fruits that they love to eat available they are likely to make the right choice.  It can be a little more expensive at times, but I think about the money I save in dentists bills and it weighs out.  They are also much healthier children because they aren't getting all of that sugary sweets.  I also try to prepare most of our meals.  To me if I prepare the meal myself I know exactly what I am putting into it and the nutrition value that it carries. At the bottom I will post some really great recipes approved by the American Heart Association.

     How are some ways that you try to keep your Family healthy?  What are the kinds of things you do alone or as a family that maybe you feel are better for you even though someone has told you that that's not enough?  I'm a firm believer that doing a little here and there is better than not doing anything at all.

Abuse comes in Many Forms

     When you think of abuse what is your first thought?  I have to admit I think of child abuse, spousal abuse, and maybe even substance abuse  but not often do we think about Elder abuse! Elder abuse happens everyday in America but sadly may times this abuse unreported by the victims.  Below I have included a chart with many different stats that show not only the number of victims but by whom they are abused.  Many of the victims are injured intentionally by family members and then there are the ones that get injured because they are forced to do things that they are not capable of doing alone and needs assistance, for example getting out of the bed alone.  Sometimes the elders are not just victimized and abused physically but maybe they are deprived of food, needed services, or their money and prize possessions are stolen right out from under them.  One of the biggest things that I can think of that happens today is that the victims are given an asprin for pain while the caretaker is stealing their pain meds.   I knew of a young man that was taking care of his Father and he would take the Morphine while his dad laid there and suffered.  His dad was sent home to die in the comfort of his own home and this is how he was treated.  Sadly it angers me to think that someone can abuse defenseless children and our elders that can't take care of themselves.

Do you know of anyone that may have been victimized, or maybe heard of someone?  I would love for my readers to share their stories.  Sometimes the best way to stop another person from becoming a victim is to talk about it and know the signs of abuse.  If you know of anyone going through this please call your local authorities and let them investigate it.  You DO NOT have to give your name when you call and you may actual be the Angel they need to save their life!
