#ProductReview: Would you like to try the Delicious Sweet Snack by Rudolph’s?

Warmer days are right around the corner, family picnics, campings, and more outdoor activities are soon to be popular. Because we want to enjoy the nature’s warm weather, we are determined to plan for outdoor activities with our family or friends along with us. We get so thrilled that we even have listed them down so we don’t miss a thing during the said events.

As a mother, one of our anxieties is to ensure that our family has still healthier meals and snacks even when we are in the wilderness. However, sometimes it isn’t back to try a delicious sweet snack during our outdoor activity. Just like for example including in your snack lists would be the new, well for me, I would say it is new as it’s just recently that I’ve gotten the chance to try the product. The Rudolph’s Cinnamon Twists, multigrain sweet churros can be found at your Dollar Store across the country. It has a Zero G Trans fat per serving, light snack with the perfect blend of sugar and warm cinnamon. I’m sure most of us love Cinnamon and also cinnamon flavor is indeed good for you, good source of fiber I believe.
For those who are counting their calories like me, I believe that per serving would definitely satisfy my craving, as for 20 pieces it’s only 140 calories. Just for your information, the product contains wheat ingredients and this product was produced on equipment that also produces products containing soy. 

My overall experience with Rudolph’s Cinnamon Twists snack is amazing, I have a nice snack to bring wherever my family and I decides to have our outside activity. Very handy, not in a huge bag, but also enough to bring for a good snack. Made in the U.S.A, check out the nearest Dollar Store in your area or simply locate a store nearby at Store Locator.

Listen when your kid tells his story

Parents are always busy in everyday life. The minute they wake up in the morning, they do have hectic schedules not only for their works, thus for also when it comes to their kids.

Even when I’m with my son at home, because I’m blogging, there are days that I have to finish the assignment that I feel so guilty of not playing with him. However, I make it up with him after my task or on the next day, still we need to listen to our kids when they started to read and share their story with us.

I’m blessed to have a smart kid, he can read words now, and the only thing I have to do is guide him whenever there are long words that he can’t specifically read. In which, I suppose normal for his age. He started to read when he is 3 years old, when he is 2 yrs old, he knows the alphabets, shapes, and numbers by heart.
This is one of those days that I have to stop what I’m doing to listen to my son. It’s very rare for kids to share their stories or even read to you as if they understand everything. Let’s become a good example for our kids by listening to them whenever they need to us to hear their voice.

Pre-K Registration

It’s time of the year when as a parent, you need to ensure that you are fully responsible for your kid’s education. As much as I would like to homeschool our son, there is only one parent who is optimistic about the idea and it will never work out. Instead, it will end up becoming a huge argument with both couples. Now that our son turned 4, though it’s not necessary since he knows mostly what Pre-K students should know, we still try to enroll him to the elementary school nearby.

 Hubby and I sent the forms at the school one Friday afternoon. Our son was so excited to see the school and the yellow bus too. Must be every kid feeling the first time they step foot in the school, makes them feel they are on cloud nine.

He doesn’t enroll yet, we have to go and attend the meeting next Friday to find out if our son would be one of those students who will attend the school this fall.

Curious Kid

We become so proud of our children the moment they have started to impress us since birth. We were one of their avid fan when the time comes they get curious and learn new things with a little of our help. We do with our son, he was so advance the minute he started to learn new things.
Might be something we did or maybe his brain is just working advance on his age. This is what we parents always wanted for our children, for them to learn faster. One factor if you know your kids are learning and willing to learn new things is they are being curious. Not just for one thing, but for every single thing. Therefore, we better have better explanations and we do hope they won’t ask us anything that it’s too early for them to learn.

Just like this day, our son was so curious on what would be inside the package. With my permission I let him open one of the parcels that arrives that day. He asked who sent it, why was it sent to me and why do I need it? Though it wasn’t too complicated, we both manage to satisfy each other’s curiosity, well especially our son.

#Product Review: I want my star shoe Mama

Soon enough the weather will be warmer and/or muddy because of the season change. I can’t wait and so is my 4 years old son who gets really bored now because of a long wait for winter to be finally over. Though we still have below 20F temperature outside at least the sun looks deceiving and sunny, meaning it is giving us hope those warmer days is coming.

Soft Star gave me the opportunity to receive a pair of their handmade products for my little one.  I want something cool and lightweight for my boy and I’ve picked Child Sandal with Elastic - Black / Shiny Pewter, retail value $46.00, size 8. Kids’ feet grow faster, that’s why I prefer to get a bigger size for him. Just to let you know, that you can also design your own shoes for your kids in case you want to create your own.

Indoor/outdoor shoe.
Allows natural foot movement and development.
Natural leather is formaldehyde-free and colored with non-toxic dye.
Can be worn with or without socks.

When it came in the mail, I like how secure the product in the package, I love how the packaging as well as those little notes that come with it. Honestly, my son wasn’t too excited with his new pair the first thing he saw it. I believe that’s what the normal reactions they always have because it isn’t junk foods, nor toys. Apparels are kids less interest and we mothers all know that. 
It didn’t take an hour after he determines that he likes his new sandal. He even got his own name for it, and he calls it the Star Shoe. I like how fine the quality of the product, it also has a nice elastic to help hold the sandal on my son’s feet. Definitely great for indoor and outdoor activity, as for now my son wears it as his inside shoe. Very lightweight, thin, looks durable and flexible as well, I would say worth the money to pay for.

Overall, my familiarity with Soft Star Child Star Sandal is great. I can see the purpose and how sturdy for my rambunctious son. In addition, I can see that my child enjoys the sandal as he wears it often now, meaning something he would keep as he is comfortable with the shoe.
