Keep Momming

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating. www.momcentralconsulting.com 

Raising a child at any age is challenging, and when it comes to mothers and daughters, the dynamic can be even more complex. What some may dismiss as “typical tween girl behavior” can sometimes be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.
That’s why I’m pleased to be joining Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.
The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub, KeepMomming.com, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. The keep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.

Minnie Mouse Party Supplies from Wholesalepartysupplies.com

*Product sent for review*
Planning parties can be stressful, so why not let Wholesale Party Supplies make it easier. It’s a one stop shop with everything you need to plan a successful party. Whether it be for a birthday, wedding, graduation or shower, no matter the age Wholesale Party Supplies has got you covered with plenty of stylish designs and character themes to choose from.  

 I picked out the Sweet, Stylish Minnie Mouse Deluxe Kit.  This kit serves 8 and has everything  you need for just $14.99. The kit shipped and arrived very quickly my UPS. All items seem to be of good quality with sturdy plates and cups. In this kit I received:

  • 8 Minnie Cake Plates
  • 8 Minnie 9oz cups
  • 16 Minnie Luncheon Napkins
  • 1 Minnie Tablecover
  •  8 Forks/Spoons/Knives
  • 1 Set of Candles
  •  2 sets of Streamers

 I found that if you need more plates, cups etc. You can purchase any extras separately. With all the other supplies being 8 or more count and all in the $1 to $2 dollar range which is super inexpensive.  They also have a lot of other Minnie Mouse decorations, as well as super cute Minnie party favor kits. I found a party favor kit with all kinds of goodies for just over $5 bucks. Score!  The party is not until the 25th but I can’t wait to see all the decorations set up. Minnie Mouse is so cute, and very on trend.   For An Exclusive Interview with Minnie Mouse check out the link.

Get Ready for Halloween with Costume Discounters!

*Product mentioned in this post was sent for review*


 Have you started thinking about what you or your children are going to be for Halloween? I love Halloween so much I start planning in September, sometimes even before that. My go to site for Halloween has over the past two years become Costume Discounters. Their selection is HUGE and they are always adding more costumes. As a matter of fact their costume selection is so large and varied that it took my son and myself an hour to finally narrow down and choose a costume. I have yet to be disappointed in the service I receive from Costume Discounters, prices are great, shipping is always fast and costume quality is superior.

This year we chose the U.S. Army Ranger costume which is officially licensed by the U.S. Army. I'm very impressed with the detail of this 7 piece costume. The materials are strong which is great because I know he is going to continue to want to play in it long after Halloween has passed.

"If your child wants to dress up as a true American hero next Halloween, then this U.S. Army Ranger Deluxe Costume is the perfect choice for you. With this outfit, you get everything you need to transform your little guy or gal into a brave and bold soldier who risks his or her own life to serve our country and protect our freedoms. It features a digi-camoflauge t-shirt, a matching camo U.S. Army vest, a matching pair of camo pants with attached pouches, tan knee pads, and a matching camo Army helmet. You can also add on some accessories that are sold separately, such as a pair of black Army boots, a toy rifle, or even a little American flag to show even more patriotism."
 Whether your looking for costumes for yourself, your children, significant other or anyone else, CostumeDiscounters.com has what your looking for. Save and extra 20% on costumes $20+ when you use the code FUN20.

 Be sure to Like and Follow Costume Discounter's on their Facebook and Google+ for all the latest deals and costumes.
