Review: Lil Dimpl

When your child is teething and being a huge grump as a result you try to do everything to help them with the pain. Our second daughter has not been a fan of teethers. But luckily I have not run into the problem we did with our first. Our first daughter broke every single teether she had. I am talking like full on bit pieces off the teethers. It has been a challenge to find a teether that our second daughter would use. She really likes the Play Together Caterpillar we got. We also got this one called Lil Dimpl. It is a smaller teether than the caterpillar one but she really seems to like it. We keep it in the car for her and even in this hot Texas heat it has not melted which is a huge plus. In case you do not know Texas heat is about 100+ degrees and things often melt when left in the car. 


lol Dimpl is a cute little blue man (you get an assorted color) with one of those popping spots. It is a pretty big popper since it is on the head of the little man. One thing I will say is I wish it had more poppers like each hand could be a popper and each foot could have been a popper, too. Since there are not poppers on the limbs of the little man his body is very bendable. It reminds me of those silly bands that used to be popular when I was in high school. Now I call it a little man but it is actually a very good size for a toddler. Our daughter is teething her back teeth in the molar area and this Lil Dimpl teether is able to reach those back teeth without choking her. This is probably the most important positive about this teether. With our first daughter it was he’d to find a teether that she could use for her back teeth as well so I am glad that with this little man she can get the teeth that are bothering her the most. 



Another plus I have found for this teether is that since it can be stretched out it is very useful for when our daughter gets angry. Even though she is a baby she gets quite the attitude and it can be difficult to calm her down. With this teether she can pull it and stretch it out all she wants to elevate her anger and frustration. We just placed an order for a custom 3rd grade kit and I am so excited to get it in the mail. What cool things do you have for your little one? Anything to help with teething? Things to help with a baby’s temper? Let me know in the comment section below.

Review: Sensory Tissue Box

We have been trying out a lot of new baby items this year and here is another one we did not have for our first daughter. It is called  Sensory Tissue Box . What makes this toy so much fun? Let's be honest babies love to get into things. We have tried before to let her play with a regular box of tissues. Big mess. The tissues were everywhere and they have like 250 tissues in a box, she torn them up to so an even bigger mess. Our daughter even went as far as to rip the box itself up. This sensory tissue box though is made of very soft fabric so she can not tear it up, it has 15 tissues so less to keep track of and the tissue can not be easily torn up either. This is the biggest positive of this sensory box in my opinion. Another positive to having this sensory tissue box instead of a regular one is that the tissues are different colors and sizes as well as having different textures to them. There are 6 see-through ones, 6 see-through ones that have dots on them and 3 crinkly ones. T

Review: 180 Days of Social Studies 1st

When I noticed that our history class did not have a lot for social studies I decided to look for something to add into our homeschool. I came across 180 Days of Social Studies  and decided to try it. So, we started with the kindergarten version and I thought it was quite well done so we have kept it for 1st grade as well. Just like with the kinder one the booklet is done in black and white and I wish it was done in color. It goes over so much but in an easy to understand way for the age group that would be using it. 180 Days goes over American things so if you are homeschooling in another country and not learning about American history then I would look for another curriculum to use. The 1st grade version goes over the systems of government, civics, economics, geography and history. The thing I like best about 180 Days is that you only do a page a day. If your school year is a 36 weeks then you are perfectly set up to do 1 page a day. Since we do a 47 week school year we only do a few

Review: Pat-a-Cat First Nursery Rhymes

I like to read a lot of books to the girls. Especially, when kids are young I think it is important to have them listen to lots and lots books. Even if your kids are playing you can read aloud to then. That way they get to hear a ton of different stories and it is good for bonding with them. When our oldest was young I would read my books aloud because she would not understand what was going on anyway. We recently got this new book for our youngest daughter. It is called  Pat-a-Cat First Nursery Rhymes  and it has a whole bunch of rhymes. 24 to be exact. What is so cool about this book of nursery rhymes is that each rhyme has instructions on actions you can do while you read them. So, your baby can get active while you sing/read since they will probably want to copy you if they are old enough to do so. Our daughter is very into songs. Her favorite is Row, Row, Row Your Boat which is not in this book but she will sing it on her own. I am sure if we sing these enough she will start singi
