    Summer Fun with Giant Gazillion Bubbles from Funrise Toys #Giveaway

    Let me first start off by saying, who doesn’t love bubbles?! Seriously, put bubbles in front of anyone and you will see the kid in them come out – this rings true for everyone, I don’t care who they are. Take my husband, for instance, he’s a big outdoorsy, no-nonsense kind of guy but if you throw some bubbles in front of him, you’ll see the big fun-loving kid in him come out. He could stand around with our boys blowing bubbles all day and who can blame him – or anyone, for that matter – watching bubbles floating through the sky is just so darn relaxing. Especially, if you’re…

    Celebrate Mom Every Day with Chamilia

    I was supposed to write this post for Mother’s Day but I thought “Why? Why should we just celebrate Mom on Mother’s Day? We should celebrate Mom every day!” We all know being a mom is more than a full-time gig – I mean we’re pretty much boo-boo doctors, taxi drivers, maids, therapists, and so much more. Not to mention the constant worry, I swear my brain doesn’t ever shut off even when I’m sleeping – I’m the first to hear the nightmare screams and when there are none it’s like my maternal clock is telling me, “even though they’re sleeping they’re too quiet”, and I still have to go…

    Learn to Garden with DK Canada + #Giveaway

    Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links. This year marks a milestone for my husband and me – it’s the first year we’ve tried our hand at gardening. Oh sure, we have indoor plants, or I guess it’s a plant since the rest died last year in our apartment that had next to no light coming in, but we’ve never actually gardened before. What our family has learned so far. We’ve decided this year isn’t one we should experiment too much with and have instead planted two little Wildflower gardens on each side of the deck – saving the bees and beautifying the yard at the same time. The kids are…

    Never Lose Your Purse Again With Tile Slim

    I have what you call a classic case of ‘mommy brain’ – I forget things and lose things constantly! I can’t remember a simple thing like ‘Hotdog lunch day’…even though it’s EVERY Friday. I have to track anything and everything in my phone plus set up multiple reminders. I have to make grocery lists or I will go in and buy everything except what I need (especially when I’m shopping with the kids). I don’t know a single person’s phone number because that’s what my call log is for. I’m sure you can understand why when I lose my cell phone (and trust me it happens a lot) it does…

    3 Ways to Organize a Small Space

    “A place for everything and everything in its place.” Last summer, my husband and I made a decision that has taken our family of four from a small two bedroom apartment to a house that also has two bedrooms but a living area (kitchen, dining room, bathroom & living room) we share with two other people. Thankfully, with the help of some family members, we are living here rent free to finish saving money and paying off our debt to hopefully own our own home this summer. Currently, our kids have a bedroom they share with bunk beds. My husband and I currently stay in a half basement that we…

    Move Your Hips to the Newest Baby-Preschool Products from VTech+ #Giveaway

    During both of my pregnancies, I remember lying on my bed listening to country music with my earbuds; I had one earbud in my ear and the other on my belly. It was no surprise to my husband or me that the entire first year of both their lives the only thing that would calm them down was the sweet voice of Tim McGraw. Fast forward 4 and 9 years, they both still prefer country music over any other genre…unless it’s Justin Bieber. Music plays an important role in the development and happiness of any child; even as early as when they’re in the womb. VTech knows and understands this…

    Tooth Fairies, Leprechauns & a Sick Little One…Oh My!

    This post may contain affiliate links. This means when you click on a link I will receive a percentage of what you spend to help support The Mommy Mix. Thank you and happy reading! Last week my little guy was sick, probably more sick than he has been in the 4 years of his life. He didn’t want something to eat every 5 minutes, play on my phone or beat up his  big brother – that is how I knew he truly wasn’t feeling his best, well that and the fact that his temperature jumped back and forth from 102°-104°. This went on for six days and was not fun…

    Ultimate Book of Cities & 642 Things About Me: Young Writer’s and Artist’s Edition #PlayTestShare #Giveaway

    I love books and as a parent I’m happy to say that my boys have inherited that love of books. Activity books, colouring books, reading books…if it has pages you can guarantee the boys will accept it with open arms and add it to their ever-growing collection. Books are not the only thing sitting on their big red bookshelf; DVDs, puzzles, games…are just a few of the other fun activities we encourage to help stimulate their minds and feed their imaginations. We recently received two titles from the #PlayTestShare Raincoast Books collection – Ultimate Book of Cities & 642 Things About Me: Young Writer’s and Artist’s Edition. Ultimate Book of…

    Maker March from DK Canada #Giveaway

    Disclosure: This link  may contain affiliate links. March Break is fast approaching – the kids will be out of school and ready to play but I’ll still have work to do. Keeping them busy can be hard sometimes especially when all they want to do is go on the computer, play on my phone or just about any other electronic you can think of. I’m okay with this, to a point – if they’re learning something, they can stay on it for as long as they want but if they just want to play on their game system for 4 hours or watch YouTube…it’s a hard NO. Computer coding for…
