Keep Your Drink Cold, and Your Muscles Flexed! A Slap Koolers Review

At first I didn't know how to begin this post.  I was given (free of charge) a SlapKooler to review, via Tomoson.  As you will see, that in no way influenced my opinion of the product.

The purpose of the SlapKooler is to be a promotional item.  You give them out free or cheap to spread the word about your company/event/cause.  The item itself is a combination drink insulator/slap bracelet.

Unfortunately, there is a big problem with this product.  It smells exactly like Les Schwab (for those of you not in the northwest, Les Schwab is a tire store that tries -and fails- to cover the scent of tires with the free popcorn they have for while you wait), which is not really that appealing when it is wrapped around your beverage.  It is of good quality for a promotional item, and really a lot more fun and useful than a pencil.

BUT, there is one use that the makers have probably never thought of.  Little Guy liked mine (it is camouflage after all) and he asked me to put it on his arm.  Then he pulled his shirt down over it and said he was the Hulk.  SO, it might make an oddly scented beverage accessory, it makes an excellent pretend muscle for a 2.5 year old.

It also would be something good to give to a fidgety kids (that is not around OTHER kids to slap it on their wrists) in church or during a movie to give them something quite to play around with.

I really want to give ALL the products I review stellar ratings, but at the same time, it is really, really important that I am honest, both because God requires it of me, and therefore I value it, and because what good are my reviews to anyone if they know they can't trust them?

You can purchase a SlapKooler from Great Online Promotions for as low as 99¢

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
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             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…
