Bath Time With Baby Dove

 Being a stay-at-home mom is not an easy breezy walk in the park. Before I became a mom I never thought that I would be a stay-at-home mom. I guess I never really thought about it. Then when I found out I was pregnant with our oldest ( Addi ) it was a no-brainer. Daycare is so expensive and it didn't make sense for us. Spencer and I decided that we didn't want strangers raising our kids. Flash Forward to now, it has been six in a half years and we now have two beautiful girls that I get to spend all day with. I would be lying if I said there are days that I didn't wish they were in daycare, some days just start off on the wrong foot. Majority of the days though, are all I ever dreamed being a parent would be.

On those not-so-great days, two of the things that I start looking forward to is 1. When will Spencer get home from work, and 2. bath time, because bath time is that much closer to bedtime. The reason I look forward to Spencer getting home is that I can finally get a little breather and I can finally go to the bathroom alone! The girls immediately run to him and for a few minutes everything is all about dad and we can't wait to tell him about our LONG day.

Somehow when dads come home everything seems to get a little better and things start to calm down a little more. One of my favorite things about Spencer is that he is always so involved and willing to always help. No matter what kind of day he's had at work, he comes home and is present with our girls. And just how I need a partner that I can rely on my tough days, I also need a brand that I can rely on when it comes to my kids. Since bath time is our favorite time around here, we take it very seriously. That is why our family uses Baby Dove products.

Baby Dove products range from Shampoo to wipes. What I love about these products is that they are rich in moisture, so I know that the girl's skin will be healthy. We use the Shampoo, tip to toe wash, both rich in moisture. As well as the body lotion that also comes with the rich moisture solution. A few of my favorite things about the Baby Dove products are that they are as gentle as water, tear free, and hypoallergenic. Their formulas are made without dyes, parabens, or phthalates. Giving our girls the best is something we won't compromise on.  They also have a line for little ones whose skin is sensitive.

So once bath time rolls around, it turns into a family affair. We all cram into the girls' bathroom and it really becomes a team effort and turns into the best part of the day. We all gather and talk and laugh. And there is nothing more I love than a fresh and clean baby, or babies since no matter how old my girls are, they will always be my babies.

Traveling In Comfort With Climate Right by Cuddl Duds


Hey, everyone, I hope this post finds you well. I am excited and looking forward to finally slowing down and taking a break this weekend. It is the first weekend I don't HAVE to actually do anything. Christmas was so good to us this year and we were so blessed to be surrounded by so much family and love. We traveled to San Diego to spend time with Spencer's family and it was much needed. We did so much celebrating and eating. And just enjoying time with family we haven't seen in a long time.

Traveling to visit family is something that we will always have to do because we have family in different states. I don't mind traveling at all I actually love it. Of course, we do have to spend a few hours in the car and with the kids, it can add a few more hours to any road trip. So comfort while traveling is what I aim for. Some might not like to travel in Pajamas and I was one of those but recently I came across ClimateRight by Cuddl Duds at Walmart and these pajamas are a game changer. My pants even have pockets in them. And my V-neck shirt doesn't look like an average sleepwear top. They are so comfy and don't really look like pajamas at all. They come in different colors and prints so I had options to choose from. Not to mention you get them for a steal of a price at Walmart. I got my ClimateRight sleepwear in just the perfect time because of the cold front we are getting. The stretch fleece fabric is enough to be warm and also comfortable.

 My ClimateRight sleepwear is perfect for layering. If you are going from sleep to street all you have to do is throw on a light jacket over. I layered mine with this faux fur vest and it just looks like a comfy two piece. I went with this pattern that looks like snowflakes in the color of lavender and mint. So festive for winter! Since the pieces are sold separately you can mix and match them to your liking. Since we are still on winter break I am definitely wearing my sleepwear all day long. If I need to go out all I have to do is throw on some shoes and that's it.

ClimateRight by Cuddl Duds is exclusively available at Walmart, the best part is that you can shop from home and get free in-store pick-up OR two-day free shipping ( with a qualifying $35 purchase) So what are you waiting for. You will love these pieces for everyday use.
