I have tried Super Moisture Butter Creme and I have to say I am impressed with this product. I like how it doesn't leave my hands greasy, where with other lotions I have to wipe my hands with a paper towel because it's so greasy! I also like that it has no odor to it. I've been having some eczema problems, and a lot of itching on my back, I've been using this creme and the itching and redness is gone.
I have also tried the Naiouli Butter Stick and again, another wonderful product! I use this more on the G0, on my elbows, knees and on my lips! I have a problem with chapped lips, I've used different chapsticks and balms, but this butter stick has really helped my lips in feeling softer.
What I like the most about this is it's ingredients: Olive Oil, Sweet Almond oil, Shea butter, Cocoa butter, Soy, Niaouli, Vanilla and Vitamin E. All natural ingredients!
I've tried the Extra Moisturizing Soap it leaves my skin feeling so clean and light, my skin doesn't feel heavy, after taking a shower my skin begins to itch, after using this soap, the itching has stopped.

Piggy Paint Review

Piggy Paint was founded by a stay-at-home-mom, Melanie Hurley, after she saw the harsh chemicals that were in regular nail polish. She worried about her girls putting their hands in their mouths after she painted them with traditional kid polishes. Not only did the ingestion of the chemicals worried her, but the smell nearly left her light-headed. One day, while they were painting their nails, over a foam plate, her daughter dropped a glob of nail polish onto the plate. Shortly after, the paint began to bubble and ate through the plate. After seeing the hole in the plate, she tested the other kid polishes on the foam, which they all began to bubble and eventually left holes in the plate. And that's when Piggy Paint was born.

Piggy Paint is not flammable, it's a water based polish that is specially formulated of natural ingredients, it's "Natural as Mud." There are no toxic chemicals, it's free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate, and acetone.

I tried the "Tea Party for Two" on my daughter's nails, and I have to say that I absolutely loved it! It is odorless, regular nail polish smell gives me a headache. My daughter like any other 5 yr. old, loves to have her nails painted, I honestly wouldn't let her because of the smell, the mess, and once I would take it off it wouldn't come all off, her nails would be stained from the color she had. I also tried Piggy Paints nail polish remover and loved it! it's odorless, no acetone and hypoallergenic. And there were no nail polish stains on my daughter's nails. I really love this nail polish and polish remover and I would highly recommend it.
They also have cute gift packages available.

My daughter at Kindercamp

My oldest daughter started "Kindercamp" today. It's just for this week so that they can get to know the school, teachers, etc. She's not to happy about this big, new school, I had to drop her off today, of course her teacher was waiting for her. When I picked her pick up she told me she was crying because I left her, and I didn't go in with her. So, that just did it for me. I'm very emotional when it comes to these things.. I cried on her first day of pre-school, I was the only parent crying.

I just want to keep them safe from everything, I don't want them to suffer, cry. I know well that I can't do that to them, but I think that as parents we want to protect them from everything.
Anyways, this will be just for this week. I guess it will be a whole other game when school starts.

Raising Kids

I have to say that I enjoy being a mom and being at home with my children, but it's hard sometimes. It's frustrating when your children won't listen to you, won't do what you tell them to do, when they talk back to you, when they try to get their way. It's not easy being a parent and it's not easy to raise kids, the only way that I have found to get through and not lose my sanity is through God. I need to pray everyday and just talk to God, my father to help me and to guide me through this parenting journey, so that I make the right decisions when it comes in raising my girls.
