I’ve never been shy to talk about Alexander’s potty training and bedwetting issues as it is something we struggle with on a daily basis.  When we first started potty training with him, it wasn’t an easy task.  After a lot of hardwork and dedication to the cause, Alexander was day potty trained just before Ellie was born.  

Yes, my son is almost 7 and he wets the bed at night.  Bedwetting isn’t something you can just solve over night, it happens and it happens to A LOT of kids.  According to a GoodNites® brand study, it’s estimated that 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 in the United States suffer from nocturnal enuresis, more commonly known as bedwetting.  If your child has a bedwetting issue, know that you are NOT alone.

Since Alexander needs some added protection at night, we’ve been using GoodNites® Underwear at home with him for years.  The problem we are now presented with is that Alexander is older and has been invited to a few sleepovers.  When you go to a sleepover, you want to fit in with everyone else, not standout as the kid who wets the bed.

Thankfully, there is a new product out there that can save the embarassment while allowing Alexander to attend a sleepover and no one being aware of his problem.

GoodNites* TRU-FIT* are real underwear with disposable inserts that offer nighttime protection for kids.

Yes! Finally a product that Alexander can use at a sleepover, and at home when needed, that give him more confidence along with the protection he needs.

GoodNites* TRU-FIT* are MACHINE-WASHABLE, REAL UNDERWEAR with a disposable insert.  Everything about them is real underwear. On the inside, there is an area for the absorbent insert that offers outstanding leakage protection with a six-layer advanced absorbent technology to help lock in wetness.

 I love how easy it is to insert and remove the absorbent pad and love it even more that Alexander can do it himself. The liner just slips into the elastic area and it stays in place.  When he gets up in the morning, he goes to the bathroom and removes the insert himself.

These are great for sleepovers too because you can’t even tell there is anything different from his underwear when he has the insert in them. GoodNites Tru-Fit in use #TRUFITTARGET #AD

 

Alexander was really excited when we picked these up from Target and can’t wait for his first sleepover.  It’s great to see him excited about sleeping over at a friends house instead of worrying what everyone else will think of him.

GoodNites* TRU-FIT* are now available at Target stores along with an onpack $2 OFF coupon.  You can get the GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Starter Kit that includes two pairs of underwear and 5 absorbent inserts for $18.99.  We also opted to pick up a refill pack of inserts as well for an extra $8.99.  You can get GoodNites* TRU-FIT* for boys or girls in sizes S/M and L/XL with colors and patterns for each size.

This is a picture of Skyler, a 14 year-old girl from my area (Green Bay WI) who took her own life last Friday, October 24th.  

Skyler was a victim of bullying and couldn’t take the pain anymore and felt no one could help her.  

As a mom of a 14 year old girl who is trying so hard to find the place where she fits in, this really hits home for me.  I cannot begin to imagine what her family is going through or the pain she was enduring for her to take her own life.  

From what I have learned, Skyler was a bright girl who was funny, artistic, loved music and her family. 

Please, if you have kids, talk to your children about bullying and how their words and actions can and will hurt others.

You can help Skyler’s family and their fight against bullying by making a donation to the National Bully Prevention Center in Skyler’s name.

Since we got an iPad at the beginning of the year, the little kids have really enjoyed using it.  Right now, my iPad gets used more by the kids than me.  (Thankfully that will change after the holidays, thanks, Santa!),

With the kids using it all the time, you can bet that it is filled with kid friendly apps, and most of them are educational. I am all for my kids learning things when they think they are just playing.

We recently checked out 3 apps from Kids Academy and they have quickly become some of Ellie’s favorite apps.

ABCs Alphabet Phonics & Montessori Learn to Read App for Toddlers

Kids Academy Reading & Writing

Ellie loves this app! She loves tracing letters, doing the mazes and exploring.

Preschool and Kindergarten Learning Kids Games Free for Toddler

Another Ellie favorite, mainly because she can trace letters.

As a mom, I am a fan of both of these apps because Ellie is learning her letters and numbers as well as how to write them and she doesn’t even realize how much she is learning from them but I do!

Bingo ABCs alphabet phonics song with farm animals cards for toddler free

screen520x924 (1)

This app will have your kids singing for days! Ellie is not only learning to read and spell with this app, she is also learing songs. Since being introduced to this app, she sings BINGO all the time.

All of these apps are free in your App Store and of course, you can purchase upgraded version of each that will unlock more fun for your toddlers.We use our iPad and educational apps as part of our every day homeschool preschool and love everything they have taught our kids!

 

Since I first fell in love with Gilmore Girls many, many years ago, I’ve wanted to run away to a quaint little inn or B&B, visit little towns and meet new people.  

Dragonfly Inn Gilmore Girls

Someday, when we have the money, the kids are grown and we have more free time, I hope Alex and I are able to get out of here and explore the country and make this dream of mine become a reality.  

Until that time arrives, I will continue to research and explore and plan our trip in my computer.

So far my goal is to visit Rhode Island, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire.  I want to stay in nothing but B&B’s and Inns and only in small, touristy towns.  Of course, since Fall is my favorite season, this is also the time I want to visit so I can experience fall in a variety of locations and see how it differs from ours.  

I want to shop, send postcards, eat at little diners and restaurants and just explore.  When we travel with kids I always have to have a plan in place, when it will finally be just the two of us, we can do what ever we want without any plans.

I really hope that someday, we can make this trip a reality and expierience it all!
