Drop Stop® • Review • Giveaway

20150309-204752-74872132.jpg

Summer is almost upon us and if you’re like me you are already planning your summer vacation. Are you a fan road trips? Where do you hope to go to next? What are your road trip necessities?

I am excited to introduce you to a new product that will help your road trips run a bit smoother. Drop Stop® is a cool new tool that prevents keys, phones, change, jewelry, makeup, bottle caps, pens, gum, food and more from falling down the car seat gap.

In less than 30 seconds I was able to install the Drop Stop® on my own. The soft, flexible Neoprene molded easily in the gap between my car seats & center console.

After a week of driving I usually find a myriad of junk piled in the gap mentioned previously. But not this time! Drop Stop® truly stopped EVERYTHING from falling to the floor and ultimately getting lost or forgotten. Wow! And, any crumbs that landed on it were easily vacuumed off. Excellent for parents on the go!

Thrills for the Girls // Alone Time for Mommy

This week has been quiet. Productive… but quiet. Our Carseat Dancers are having a thrilling summer visit with my parents as I prepare to go back to the grind and while my hubby is working, nonstop.

They’ve been out & about to the beach, Legoland and Sea World. Lucky little California girls.
Here, they’re at Sea World riding a carnival-type-spinning ride. {Alone.}

They’ve gone to the park. 20130801-194939.jpg {Photo editing app: #aBeautifulMess.}

Excited to see the girls tomorrow; I’ve missed them. Although, quiet {alone} time has been… well, enjoyable & quiet.

Cheers to spending a bit of time alone!
xoox, Jen

Singing & Napping {Not Dancing} in Carseats

This is one of many songs sung by DEA3 on the way. Hearing her voice makes me smile, it’s so sweet.

This is how the girls spent hours & hours of this fab summer day. {AKA4 is catching air here.} 20130630-001853.jpg
{FYI: Water slides are the BEST babysitters!}
Happy 6th Birthday Avery!

Summer Water Sliding Fun

Our ride home was silent though, total opposite from our ride there. She lasted for less than one block before falling asleep. We had to laugh when we saw her… Yellow braid and movie STAR shades in hand. 20130629-233734.jpg

Cheers to Water Play!

Last day of Pre-School {For a While}

Today was the girls last day of preschool, at least until summer is over. I never really thought too much into Pre-school. Being a teacher myself- Middle School, I figured that teaching my own two would be {CAKE.} They’re smart. Right? With the help of Nick Jr. {I’m not completely kidding.} I can make learning exciting. Right! Boy was I wrong! Teaching your own kids is tough. At home, Addison {our 4 1/2 -year-old} usually listens. But Delaney… oh Delaney, our 3 1/2-year-old is a handful. I know it’s hard to believe, when looking at her adorableness, but it’s true. It took this Mommy no time whatsoever to truly appreciate the importance of Pre-school {it most definitely wasn’t JUST babysitting} and I’m gonna miss it these next few summer months.

What exactly were they learning at school?
Well, Classroom Etiquette is huge… To raise your hand, take turns and share the attention of others. One thing both girls are going to continue working on while on summer vacation is to be patient.

Learning Social Skills is another valuable way of life that preschool has taught them. How to compromise, the importance of being kind and respectful of others and how to effectively problem solve. All of which, their teachers rave about when my hubby and I pick them up at school. We hear, “They’re so sweet.” & “Your girls are role models. So respectful.” I’ve been known to remind the teachers, in the beginning, of which two are ours. They knew. LOL! It makes me smile to know that they are BOTH so wonderful at school.

Both teachers were exceptional. Addison’s teacher, has taught Literacy Skills where she has adopted a richer vocabulary and has grown with her pre-reading skills. AKA & DEA love books too.

Delaney is super sharp with her Math Skills, as she and AKA are on level playing fields. We practice counting, recognizing patterns and, thanks to Pre-school, she too knows ALL of the geometric shapes.

Lastly, Pre-school has helped them gain a sense of self, increased self-control (at least while there), built self-confidence and gained a spiritual appreciation for our World and why we’re here.

This photo was taken as they were being thankful for this day and their food.

After picking them up from Pre-school we tried, for the first time, a round of Miniature Golf.
{We’re planning ahead for collage scholarships.}

Then at 6:00 PM we headed back to school for Addison’s performance & “Graduation” from Pre-school to Transitional Kindergarten – as she won’t make the October 1st deadline for Kindergarten. And Delaney’s performance and promotion from the 3-year-old class to the 4-year-old class. Huge milestones for both. Tonight’s celebration will be on the blog tomorrow. This Mommy needs to hit the hay. I’m the only one up… It’s 1:00AM. Zzzzz!

Good night.
