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:

New treats this Halloween season include:  Fall Rolo Chewy Caramels, Cadbury Screme Eggs and Jolly Rancher Candy Apple Lollipops.  All of your regular Hershey's favorites like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Reese's Pieces, Kit Kat, and Hershey's Miniatures are also donning their holiday duds.  Hershey's has even launched a fabulous Halloween themed website called "Celebrate with Hershey's", which contains plenty of terrific holiday recipes, crafts, decorating ideas and more!  This is a great resource for everything Halloween and there's plenty there to make your mouth water too!   :drool:

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.

The below content is sponsored by Sanofi Pasteur’s Headfirst! Expert Advice on Lice campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

 

Unfortunately, head lice are common in elementary schools – about one out of every 100 elementary school children becomes infested.

Most parents would agree, the letter home informing of a head lice outbreak is not a welcome sight. The question of “What do I do?” is common. Knowing the facts beforehand can help you resolve the situation quickly.

The Headfirst! Expert Advice on Lice website aims to help you do just that. Created by head lice experts (and moms) for other moms, families and communities to learn about head lice—what they are, what they look like and how to treat them.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Green Works. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating.

 

Clorox Green WorksHaving a dog and a small child in the house definitely means that I have to step up my cleaning routine in order to keep up with them.  It also means that for the first time in my life, I've actually begun considering what is IN those cleaning products I use.  I've read so much in the past few years about how toxic common household cleaners can be, though I still want to make sure everything in my house is exceptionally clean so that my family doesn't get ill.

Clorox has found a uniquely designed way to bring you the best of both worlds...a super clean home with absolutely no harmful chemicals used in the process.  Let me introduce you to Green Works Natural All-Purpose Cleaner.
