Disney Classics Box Set

Right now I am watching the girls dance around like crazy.  Not abnormal in my house, we are dancing fools, but today we are listening to a new CD.  It arrived via UPS this morning, and while at first I told Hadlee whatever it was was not for her, it turned out that it was a surprise for ALL OF US!

It was a sample CD from the new Disney Classics Box Set.  The Box Set has 95 songs, ranging from classic classics like Whistle While You Work from Snow White, modern classics (oxymoron much?) such as Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast, Disneyland songs like Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life for Me) from Pirates of the Caribbean and TV favorites from shows like Mickey Mouse Club, Lizzie McGuire, and Duck Tales.

Some of the songs on the sample CD were not hits at my house, mostly the Disneyland songs, but since they are a little less "dancy" and unfamiliar to a four year old that has not been to Disneyland that makes sense.  Sadly, so far the favorite has been the song from Tangled, but I think that will change because I recall seeing that Duck Tales and Mary Poppins songs on the list, and those are popular things to watch in this house.  Even though there are only about a dozen songs on my CD, I have a feeling it will be in frequent rotation until I can get the money for the real box set!

The Disney Classics Box Set is available for sale on Amazon for $31.74, and apparently includes a free MP3 version of all the songs that auto rip to "the cloud" when you purchase the discs.  Which is interesting because its $37.99 to buy the MP3 version of the album.  This would be a great gift for any Disney fan, young or old!  I just checked and they are currently sold out, so if you want to get one for Christmas, make sure you order soon so you can get in on the next shipment!!!!

Everything You (N)Ever Wanted to Know About "Mama Cloth"

Remember how I said I was a crazy hippie??  I believe I crossed the threshold from crunchy to crazy in February when I ordered some cloth menstrual pads.

I decided that it was ridiculous that I was putting all kinds of chemicals on -or even IN- a mucous membrane for at least 15% of my (non)child-bearing years!  Mucous membranes are absorbent and I don't really want to absorb extra chemicals for no good reason.  I have heard that the disposable kind are so irritating to your vaginal lining that most people bleed for a day or two less once they switch to reusable.  Since my period has a mind of its own, I highly doubt I will ever notice this...

So I decided to buy some of the reusable sort.  I thought about a Diva Cup, but didn't want to invest the $40 on something I might hate.  I knew that even if I didn't love pads I would still use them, at least sometimes.  The main problem I ran into was that they are FLIPPING EXPENSIVE!  I mean over the course of time they are much ch…

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…

New Pampers Diapers - A Quick Review

I am a member of Influenster.  They give away awesome sample packs for companies and in return I review/promote them on various platforms.  The product I am about to discuss was given to me by Influenster and Pampers free of charge!

The new diapers are designed to fight "diaper sag" and have an absurd hashtag to go along with it (I am a firm non-believer in hashtags and prefer to call it the "pound sign") # sagtoswag.  I don't like the word swag either, so this campaign is really not selling the product to me if I am being completely honest (which I usually am).

Most diapers have all the weird absorbent material in one compartment, making it so they sag quite a bit when they are wet.  The new Pampers have three chambers so the liquid is more spread out and not saggy.

What did I think about them?  Well I think its a nice idea, because saggy diapers really look gross.  And it did work, but it looked weird in a different way.  Three areas were all sagging a little…
