Renzo’s Vitamins for Kids – Click here to purchase

Do you know a kid who is a picky eater? Practically all kids refuse some type of nutrition from their diets. Some may hate broccoli, others may loath berries and apples. With such busy days and picky eaters it’s so hard to have them sit and eat fully nutritional meals every day. This is why smart care takers lean on adding a vitamin or two to their kids diet. We take a multivitamin at dinner each night. We have switched over to Renzo’s Kids Vitamins for several reasons. They are vegan, contain zero sugar and are gummy free. Many kids have a hard time chewing a gummy vitamin, or are too young to swallow a pill – this is where Renzo’s steps in for you. Their tablets are chewable and dissolve in your mouth, making it easy to take. Kid flavors like Oh-Oh-Oh Orange, Cherry Chery Mo’ Cherry. and Lil’ Green Apple make it fun and enjoyable for the kids taking them. We love the daily multi “Picky Eater Multi” and try to add in a “Bright & Brainy B6” or “Iron Strong” a few times per week too. Check out their site in the link above for more information and to see what is inside each vitamin.

What this Mama loves about MacDaddy Milkers bath bombs are

  1. Their price! Anyone can afford them
  2. Even the 2.5 ounce bombs fill your normal size tube with coloring & scent
  3. They have enough moisturizing agents to soften your skin without greasing up your tub


MacDaddy not only makes custom bath bombs, but they have a super collection of Goat Milk Soaps.


The MacDaddy Milkers have their own goats! Their registered Nubien dairy goats give us the milk used in their soaps.


Most of us don’t know that beautiful skin starts with the best moisturizing, skin-loving oils and goat milk soap takes it a step further with it richness and alpha hydroxy. Eczema – gone. Dry skin – gone. Softness and clear skin is the result. – MacDaddy Milkers


Their Goat Milk Soaps are so creamy and luxurious to use. By using a goat milk product you are not only cleansing but moisturizing your skin in a safe and natural way. Once I switched to a goat milk based cleansing bar a few years ago I have not need able to stand liquid soaps – those liquid soaps give my body a slimy feeling. When I use a goat milk product I feel clean and soft.


With the winter months approaching we are coming upon so bitter cold and dry weather. My skin lacks the moisture it requires in the Ohio winters. As soon as I step out of the shower I MUST apply lotion. My poor skin is getting more dry with age. The great news is that the goat milks used in the soaps above are also used in the MacDaddy Milkers lotion line. This gives my skin the final line of defense it needs.


The ingredients: MacDaddy Milker’s super emollient, ultra-moisturizing All Natural Goat Milk Lotion is made with all-natural goat milk, distilled water, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, emulsifying wax, palm steric acid, shea butter, vitamin E (as a natural preservative) and fragrance.

Many bath product companies make Sugar Scrubs. Eh. I have used a ton of them. But the homemade ones never seen as nice as the store bought ones…until now! I am super pumped up about MacDaddy Milkers Sugar Scrubs! Typically a sugar scrub will get clumpy, the oil will rise to the top and leave you will half the jar of just scrub without any moistener, and then I sadly toss it out, feeling like such a waste.  MacDaddy Milkers did some sort of magic on their scrubs and came up with a mixture that is not only smooth, but its soft and full of oil throughout the container. I do not have to mix it up before use like a jar of organic peanut butter, but I can just take some right off the top without fear of getting a dry bottom half of the jar.  I cannot tell you how perfect these scrubs are.

If you’re like me, I love decorating my home with canvas prints! Back when we lived in Australia, we had our ‘go-to’ Canvas Prints Brisbane supplier! They were pretty amazing! In fact, even though we’re back in the USA we may still occasionally order from them! Recently, we’ve been looking into how we can get canvas photo prints that make our home unique and have a personal feel. I have always loved the look of a gallery wall with canvas prints but I had no idea how easy this look was to achieve and that I could get my canvas prints cheaper than the cost of printing photos and buying a frame. Canvas Photo Prints makecanvas edit 2 thoughtful gifts, some of my first canvas prints were a Christmas gift to my brother and his wife of pictures of their children at my wedding. Last year my husband got me a 3 canvas wall display (this meant more to me than anything, since it appears that he does listen when I talk and that he chose one of my favorite wedding photos and my favorite newborn photo of our daughter). It means so much more to me to have my house decorated with my photos and my memories.
If you’d like to share these memories with family members and friends, there’s many places you can buy a range of refurbished photocopiers cheaper than new, and in just as good condition!

I have used both options, the nice thing about the wall displays is that they help you design the layout and they even provide you with a blueprint to make hanging easy (including telling you exactly where to place your nail, we all know I have a fear of unneeded nail holes). If you choose to do a single print they have 10 different sizes to pick from or you have the option to customize your size. Next choose your wrap, standard .75″, Gallery 1.5″ (all my canvas prints are gallery wrap). You also have the option of getting your canvas framed or the option of stretching the canvas yourself and just get your print on a rolled canvas. Easy Canvas Prints makes choosing a photo simple by giving you the option to choose from your library of photos ECP 2on your computer or accessing albums on Facebook or Instagram. They let you know of your image quality and make “editing” easy with user friendly zoom options as well as choosing which direction your canvas will hang. Finish your order by choosing the display options (I chose open back) and your border. I like the mirror border, so my image is wrapped around the sides of my canvas without loosing some of my photo. Be sure to double check your image after adding the border, especially if you choose to have it wrap the sides.

My canvas prints from Easy Canvas Prints are stretched onto a wood frame and are high quality. The prints themselves are clear and beautiful, not pixelated (which is always my fear when blowing up a photo, that’s why I love the image quality check that Easy Canvas Prints offers).

I must say that Easy Canvas Prints is simple straight forward website (I would trust my not computer savvy mom to be able to navigate this site and be able to order a canvas). Although I did receive a canvas print in exchange for this review I assure you that I have purchased from Easy Canvas Prints in the past and will continue to order from them. Next I think I will use their Instagram feature and print one of my vacation photos on a 8×8 canvas.

Unforgettaballs Review

Unforgettaballs Review


What is Unforgettaballs?

One day, 20 years ago, Emily Wolfson, took an average white baseball and painted an American Flag on it as a gift to her husband. Once they saw the final result they knew that they had something here. An American classic, the baseball, made to be a unique and one-of-a-kind piece of art. Emily at that time was an architect and drawing in fine detail was a skill her mastered but also loved. Over the years Emily has made old and new ballparks, city landscapes, and family occasions for all types of baseball collectors.

Mama’s Experience

When I first heard of Unforgettaballs I thought it was one of the coolest concepts I have heard of. You could get your favorite baseballs teams stadium painted onto a baseball. A one-of-a-kind creation. Then I saw the prices! They are very reasonably priced. The average baseball enthusiast can have a collection of these on their shelf. Its such a fun collectible that I could see buying these as gifts for the sports enthusiast in your life. Birthdays, Fathers Day, Mothers Day, Sweetest Day, Christmas…you get the idea. All you need now is a baseball bat to get with it…after all, you can’t play baseball without the bat! You can take a look at these leading bbcor baseball bats if you’re having trouble finding some.

Progressive Field Baseball

The ball arrives in its own, beautiful and classic Unforgettaballs box. The design is slightly raised, just as the stitching in a true baseball. Super impressive packaging. You know a real treat is going to be inside.

Inside the box your baseball is delivered in a clear, durable plastic collectors box. This allows the ball to arrive in perfect condition. As I mentioned above, each ball is hand painted. To ensure that the paint doesn’t rub off during transit the ball has a small amount of bubble wrap inside the plastic case with the ball. I thought that was a very thoughtful addition to the packaging.


When you touch the ball itself you instantly can feel the texture of the paint. This just made me truly appreciate the high quality and personalized touch that each Unforgettaballs ball has.

Whether you have a die-hard baseball fan in your family, a sports enthusiast, the hard to shop for person on your holiday list, I sincerely think you should get an Unforgettaball for them, you will not regret it.

Mama’s Experience

My son is 18 months. He is not officially verbally delayed, but he is on the borderline of being officially delayed. Having an older sister who always talks for him, he never gives it a go and tries to talk. He gets lazy I feel. He doesn’t push himself to try to talk. I was very excited to try to use this program with him. Anything to help engage him and learn at least what the his basic words are is going to be a win in my book.

mirror cards

This kit is jammed packed with fun teaching tools. I am not a teacher. I am a parent. I know how to talk and help my child and how to relate to him. I can use the books, puppets, cards, blocks and puzzles in this kit to his benefit. I know that he prefers to point at each picture at his own pace. When he points to a new picture I know that means he is ready for me to tell him what it is. If I go too fast or too slow then he looses interest or gets upset. Reading your child and paying attention to their cues will make this kit not only fun but also fruitful.


My son, like many other children, loves blocks. The key feature that makes these blocks special is the mirror on each one. The blocks focus on facial features. You can point and show them your nose/ear/hair, then point to their nose/ear/hair and then show in in the mirror what their nose/ear/hair looks like. This helps in a way I never thought of. I can point to my face and their face, but until they do it for themselves and see themselves in the mirror its like another part of the brain clicks. He gets it. While he still cannot say the word ‘mouth’, now my son is slowly starting to remember where his mouth is and can occasionally point to it. These blocks are so great.

The touch and feel flashcards are another super special tool in this kit. Babies love the touch and feel books. They are engaged in the book. By drawling a child’s interest into touching the card and really focusing on the image they are using more then just the sense of vision like most flash cards. This engages them to focus in and really look at what they are touching. Everyone learns in different ways. Some by sounds, others by touch, some by all forms of their senses. I think having touch and feel flashcards is a brilliant idea.


This is a wonderful gift for this 2015 holiday season. You can pick one up at your local Toys R Us or WalMart!
