How to sleep in with a toddler

Pretty crazy claim, right? Well this is working for us!!
Brooke has gone through all kinds of stages of sleep in her short 2.25 years on this planet.  She was a great sleeper as a newborn, had some struggles around 8-9 month mark, just about the time things got better from that round, we started again with the multiple wake-ups every night.  Finally, we have found something that works but we still had occasional 5-5:30 wake up calls.  So we were super happy when Santa left this under our tree:
Teach Me Time Alarm Clock
The American Innovative Teach Me Time! Talking Alarm Clock and Nightlight* is a night light, teaching clock, alarm clock and just might be the best thing EVER!!! Basically, we set the night light to come at a certain time (for us, 7:30pm). When it does, it shines yellow. We also set a time for it to change to a green light (6:40am on weekdays, 7:00am on weekends). At bedtime, we remind Brooke that its not time to get up until the light is green. It took about two nights for her to really get it but now we are woken up by the sounds of Brooke calling “It’s Geeen, Mommy!! It’s Geeen!!”
Brooke even asked me to use it at naptime and, while its sometimes annoying to program it at both nap & bedtimes, it works so well it would be silly of to not. Its been a great tool to enforce a two hour quiet/nap time every afternoon.
So if you’ve been frustrated by early morning wake-ups or kiddos who have trouble staying down for their naps, I would highly recommend this clock. No one asked me to write about it – I just feel like it would be wrong of me not to share it!!!

Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner

I had no idea when Bzz Agent sent me a Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner how great the timing would be. With a stitched up hand, scrubbing the shower isn’t high on my priority list. Luckily, with the Automatic Shower Cleaner all I need is one finger and it does all the work!!

Keith hung it up in our shower a couple weekends ago. We had to rearrange some things because the shower caddy where we stored our shampoo and soap hung from the shower head and we couldn’t have both. That’s a big of a negative for us but we made it work.

It’s definitely convenient though. When we’re finished showering in the morning, we press the button and 15 seconds later, the cleaning solution is spraying the walls & corners of the shower for us.  We don’t even have to be in the bathroom and our shower is being cleaned!

For coupons and/or more info, check out the Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner website.

**As a Bzz agent, I was given a sample of the Automatic Shower Cleaner to review.  All opinions expressed above are my own.**
