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.
