Tummy Stuffers Make Clean Up Time Fun!

Tummy Stuffers Snuggling

  A few months ago, my son came downstairs and told me that if I got him Tummy Stuffers, he’d actually clean his room. He had just seen the ad on television. He’s always had a fascination for “as seen on TV” items. When the chance to review one came up, Jacob told me to go for it. He promised, again, that it would make clean up easier. Well, technically, they DO make cleaning your child’s room go faster, but honestly, he was more into snuggling with it than actually following through with cleaning! Still, he loves his Tummy Stuffer, […] Read more »

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Zappos.com. I received product samples to facilitate my review” I am excited to announce that I am participating in the Zappos.com Ambassador Program with MomCentral.

Kids Get Social at Provost Academy: The UnVirtual Online School


This post brought to you by Provost Academy. The content and opinions expressed below are that of http://www.prettyopinionated.com/. I’ve been thinking more and more about enrolling my son in an online school. I find that a “traditional” school setting just isn’t cutting it for Jacob, especially since his school is putting less and less emphasis on student relationships. See, relationships formed in school play a large role in how well your child learns. Kids learn as much from each other as they do from their teachers…if not more! I also think every child learns differently, and the public school model […] Read more »

Dorm Room Basics for Sharing a Bathroom with Strangers | PrettyOpinionated.com

Congratulations! You’re off to college and moving into a dorm room. You know what that means? Well, a lot of things actually. Like staying up late…studying and eating junk food for breakfast! It also means sharing a bathroom with strangers! Yay, right? This was the one thing I dreaded most about living in a dorm room. I couldn’t stand showering in those little stalls with flimsy curtains. Forget about other stuff, I waited until the middle of the night! Sharing a bathroom with strangers- especially when the idea freaks you out- requires some planning. The fact that you have to […] Read more »
