A Not So Uglee Pen Review

I was given three ergonomic pens to try and review.

You can buy three pens for $19.99 on their website.

The Uglee Pen was designed by a doctor to be ergonomically correct and super comfortable. As well as being comfortable, I believe it could be useful in teaching children the proper way to hold a pen, although I didn't try this much because three-year olds and ink scare me a bit. It is also helpful to people who hold their pens to tight (guilty). I honestly didn't notice a huge difference in comfort, but that is probably because I don't write for long periods of time, and don't have any joint problems.

The comfort pen has a cushioned gel grip and is very lightweight. Despite its name it isn't particularly ugly, although mine are a yellow color I wouldn't choose myself (I would totally pick the pink one). The soft grip has little specks of glitter in it, which I think is awesome.

There are a couple of downfalls to this pen. The main one is its name: Uglee Pen. I gave one to my husband to use for work, but he said that with the name written on it in bold letters, it didn't come off very professional, and he wasn't comfortable handing it over to customers. Perhaps in the future they will make an "executive line" that has a classier look.

The other downfall is also a main selling point: the gel grip. While it is awesome for writing, and looks really fun, it isn't a pen that you can throw in the bottom of your purse. All the little crumbs (what don't you have crumbs in your purse?) will stick to the grip.

For all the times you need a pen, but don't need to make a professional impression, this is a great option. It would also be great for kids going back to school, since it is fun and comfortable.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that

             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
