105th Mommy Mondays - You Never Know

Every mom definitely needs to watch this. You are making a difference even if you don't get everything done on your to do list. I know I definitely need to remember this everyday! We also need to remember not to judge one another if their house doesn't look perfect. They might have been helping others that day.

104th Mommy Mondays - Loose Tooth

My son has his first loose tooth About a month ago I thought that might happen after he complained about a tooth hurting. Sure enough it's loose now! I'm not too surprised since a couple of his friends already have a lost a tooth, and he got his first tooth at 5 months, but just another milestone that's he's growing up!

We noticed it on June 18th. He's not messing with it too much either, just his personality.  He ate a ton of corn on the cob and apples though on our Chicago trip, and it's still there

What age did your child get his first loose tooth?

138th Fashionable Fridays - Firmoo Glasses

 A while ago I was contacted by Firmoo to try out their glasses, but I was going to be gone out of town a lot and wouldn't have a chance to get my prescription so I asked my friend who was looking to try out some glasses (though she doesn't need a prescription) to give them a try. Her is her review.
A little while ago I saw a picture of myself with glasses on, and I thought "hey, maybe that's what I'm missing! Those look pretty good!" I mentioned it to a group of friends one day and one of them said she had an opportunity for me. It was to try out the Firmoo glasses for her blog! When I checked out the pictures of their product, I was sold.
I don't have a prescription for glasses, and I was glad they had an option for prescription free lenses. I was excited to try these out and see what my peers and family thought of them.
Once the order was placed, it was a very good turn around time to receive them, even though they came all the way from China! I was very impressed that it was just around one week.

Their product is very stylish, and very good quality. The frames are a very solid build. They were a perfect fit for my face, which is very hard to do without trying on 20 pairs first! One shot and they got it right. They are comfortable to wear; the nose pieces are just formed into the design instead of being extra pieces and the arms (?) didn't hurt or irritate my ears with all day use.
I was instantly impressed by the clarity of the lenses. Even with a little dust and a tiny smudge on them they were almost more clear than I could see without them at all. I felt like everything was more crisp and a little more bright in color.
The package came with a hard case and a soft bag, a cleaning cloth and a screwdriver keychain for repairs. I'm pretty excited about the screwdriver. None of my sunglasses ever came with such a thing.

They arrived in the mail one day before I was going hiking with a group from church. I wore them from the first moment I got in the car until I got home later that evening. Not one person mentioned the glasses. I figured that could mean two things: they looked really natural so nobody noticed there was something different, or they looked terrible and nobody wanted to mention it. I decided to wear them again and to work this time - and one use isn't enough to get a good review, right?
The glasses were very comfortable on the hike and I not once considered taking them off. They didn't make my face too sweaty, didn't obstruct my line of vision, nor did they feel like they were a burden in my recreational activities.

It was a few hours at work before anyone noticed the glasses. First it was my boss, then my maintenance guy, and they both approved. I only saw them once through the whole shift, but the next day (yeah, I wore them again) both of them mentioned again how much they liked them on me. My boss pointed it out to others saying "don't those just look great on her?" and "I don't want to sound creepy, and I'm sure you've heard me say this a few times, but they really look good!"  

Verdict, they look good and natural. I was right. That is exactly what I was missing.


She look fabulous in them! I can't wait to get my prescription again to try myself a pair. I know looking at the website, I loved that you can upload your picture to see what glasses work on you. I've always wanted colorful glasses myself, but they never had many colors to actually try on at my doctor's office so I was excited to see they had that photo upload option.
They ask a lot of specific questions to get the right size for your glasses which can be confusing at first, but they have a lot of descriptions and photos to get the right measurements if you don't have prescription measurements.

My friend received these lovely glasses here.

102nd Mommy Mondays - Kids' TV

What is one thing you're grateful your kids "learned" from a TV Show? 

A couple months ago, my kids learned a song called "Grown-ups Come Back" on Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood (same people who did Mr. Rogers) from Netflix or Hulu. They sing it all the time, and it helps them when I have to leave them.

Watch a clip here: http://www.pbs.org/parents/daniel/?guid=96c57640-7bf3-413a-8afa-a6eb530989d1 

Be careful! It might get stuck in your head!

101st Mommy Mondays - Mouth of Babes

My Daughter and My Son both say this often, "Water keeps me hydrated and milk makes me strong."

My son at the gas station.... A couple Saturdays ago, we went to get gas and the attendant filled us up. My daughter asked what's his name, and I told her I didn't know. My son was like maybe his name is Phillip because he filled up our car. =)

My trouble makers at Wal-mart.

A couple weeks ago, I heard my son tell my daughter "Don't trick that it's alcohol!" so of course I go out to investigate especially since we don't have alcohol in our home, being Latter-Day Saints aka Mormons. In my daughter's hand was a bottle of Lime Juice. =D She was confused about the word "acohal" I told my son, it's not alcohol because we don't have any in the house and told my daughter she could try if she wants, but she probably wouldn't like it. Reminds me of the day when she wanted to drink lemon juice.

What funny things have your kids said lately?
