I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Stride Rite. I received products to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.

 

Stride RiteWith Halloween rapidly approaching, parents everywhere are making sure their entire family is ready for the big night.  I've got flashlights, candy pails, gobs of candy to give out and of course, the ever important costume ready.  But is that enough?

Although Halloween night is a great time for all involved, it can also be quite dangerous.  Kids running to and fro through neighborhoods while cars drive back and forth continuously can be a recipe for disaster.  That's why I'm glad that Stride Rite has a whole slew of stylish footwear selections which are also extremely safe for children to wear at night.

But wait, there`s more! »

SafewayI like to think of myself as a practical gal by nature.  From as far back as I can remember, I've strived to conserve whatever resources I had available.  Be it birthday money, toys or craft supplies, I was careful to make the most of what I had.  Today, our family budget is always under my watchful eye.  Thanks to Safeway and the ExxonMobil Fuel Rewards program, it's never been easier to safe a LOT of money on both groceries and gas.

Hershey'sHalloween is a wonderful holiday full of ghouls, goblins and everything that goes bump in the night.  Being scared is a lot of fun, which is why Halloween is one of my favorite holidays...even as an adult.  Of course, getting terrific goodies at every turn doesn't hurt either, and The Hershey's Company has always supplied plenty of scrumptious ways to help us celebrate!   :halloween:

Sleep NumberIf there's one thing I take super seriously, it's the quality of my sleep.  As a working mom, the quantity of sleep I receive always seems to be in short supply.  At times, there's not much I can do about that, but I CAN control the quality of the sleep I receive each night.  When you're battling through a tough day on just a few hours of rest, it's essential that you've maximized how well you slept the night before.

Although I have a top quality mattress that I love sleeping on, the one thing I never seem to be happy with is the temperature at which I sleep.  My husband and I can control the ROOM's temperature easily enough with our home thermostat, but it's next to impossible to control the temperature between me and the mattress each night...or is it?   :question:

GreatCallAs parents, we've all had it...that gut-wrenching feeling in the pit of our stomachs when our child wakes up in the middle of the night and screams out your name.  About six months ago, my daughter Riley had went to bed a little under the weather and woke up with a scorching fever of 105 degrees.  Of course our immediate reaction was to rush her to the emergency room where we waited for hours to see a doctor.

In the end, the doctor only gave my daughter ibuprofen and told us to alternate between it and acetaminophen until she could see her regular physician.  Needless to say, we all lost a lot of sleep that night and didn't feel much better for the wear and tear.  If only there had been an easier way to get an expert's opinion...

Urgent Care AppNow with the Urgent Care app from GreatCall, there is.  Urgent Care is a unique app that combines one-touch access to a nurse or doctor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with the best features of a robust and consumer-friendly medical dictionary and medical symptom checker tool.  Nurses have the ability to escalate to a board-certified physician if required, who may give advice, diagnosis or even prescribe common medications for a wide range of conditions over the phone.

There is so much to love about family holidays in Antalya.

For starters, when it comes to Antalya holidays, you're simply spoiled for choice with so many things to see and do. This part of the world is renowned for its beaches, with wonderful sandy affairs gracing the coastlines of bustling resorts like Alanya, which offer a buzzing holiday vibe with stacks of local amenities and attractions.

For kids, Antalya holidays offer plenty of beach-orientated fun, with mile upon mile of sandcastle-building territory and plenty of lovely shallow shores for paddling or splashing about. Various beaches fall within sheltered bays, which offer a great environment for children complete with calm waters - perfect for little paddling feet. And older kids can try their hand at snorkeling or water sports too. Just make sure you're within a safe beach, as even in the calm shores of the Mediterranean, those currents can be stronger than you think.
