Ask Ms. MommyHH6…….

This is the first Ask Ms. MommyHH6 post! You can submit a question to msmommyhh6@yahoo.com Ask away!

From Amanda P. @ Fort Bliss

How do you stay organized and still find time to write?

Good question. It is a work in progress to be honest. I am a huge fan of charts, schedules and routines. I make a lot of my own organizational tools. I also customize inspiring ideas I find online and use printables created by fantastic organization blogs.

Some of my favorite places to find great organizing printables:

I use different methods depending on what I am trying to accomplish and the target person. Visual reminders and planning ahead works for my entire family. Consistency in schedule and routine helps everyone to know what needs to be done and what is expected. Using organizational tools helps save so much time, meet deadlines and stay on track. It also helps Ginger and Blondie learn responsibility, be independent and provides positive reinforcement.

Here are a few of the ways I stay organized. I will go into each project area further in a detailed post. You can also read more of our methods at  Summer ShockHow to Avoid the Toy Store Drama and Weathering the Storm with My Special Child.

Review: Dino Lingo Language Learning Programs

Dino Lingo Language Learning Programs

Product: Dino Lingo Language Learning Programs for Kids DVD Demo

Description: Dino Lingo is an interactive language learning program for babies and kids. This language set consists of 5 DVDs/Episodes: animals, shapes, numbers, verbs, greetings and nouns. After watching these videos several times, most babies and small children can easily name everyday objects and understand basic phrases such as “hello”, “what’s this?” in foreign languages. Dino Lingo is ideal to foster toddler’s cognitive development and has won the Influential Parents Award in 2010 and 2011 in education category.

My Opinion: The animation and graphics leave ALOT to be desired. My daughters are used to iPads and HDTV so this was not comparable and they let me know. However, I LOVE the concept and the program’s curriculum. My 2-year-old was repeating Spanish words immediately and used them later. I was impressed! She really did get excited watching it and I was ecstatic to see her learning so quickly. This would be perfect for early learners trying to learn a second language as they learn their first. If the animation and graphics were improved this product would very much be work the $99.55 for me.

Retail Price: $99.95

Where to Buy: www.dinolingo.com

Review: The Many Uses of Ivory

The Many Uses of Ivory

20120717-160313.jpg

Product: Ivory Bar Soaps

Description: Free of dyes and heavy perfumes, Ivory provides a simple, yet effective clean for the entire family and is 99.44% pure. Beyond using it as a body cleanser, many of Ivory’s loyal users swear by Ivory as their beauty secret and use as a facial cleanser. It provides healthier, smoother and more even-looking skin. Also, its versatility makes it effective as laundry soap as well as a spot stain remover on your clothes. Ivory bars can even be used for a fun soap carving project with the family!

My Opinion: Ivory soap is already a staple around our household. Ivory is one of the least expensive bars and body washes on a per ounce basis! My mother used it when I was a child and I knew it was the product I wanted to use as a mother. My daughters have sensitive skin and this is one of the only soaps that do not irritate them. I have used Ivory as a facial cleanser and was really pleased. Its results are comparable to higher priced facial cleansers. I haven’t tried Ivory as laundry soap but I imagine it works just as well for that purpose. Have you used it for laundry? I’d love to hear about it.

Ways to Use Ivory:

  • Facial Cleanser
  • Body Wash
  • Laundry Soap
  • Spot Stain Remover
  • Soap Carving Project
  • and More…

Retail Price: A 10-pack of Ivory bar soap retails for around $4.49 (bath bar size).
