If it is…I’m guilty!!! I caved, after seeing all the Peep Pop posts, I had to get in on the fun. Today I put bunnies on sticks, dipped them in melted chocolate and sprinkled them with love. I took pretty purple Peep chicks and made them chocolate nest that I decorated with sprinkles. Oh, then I put those purple Peep chicks on sticks. Happy Easter Everyone!!!

Simply Caked sent me some pretty cupcake papers to review. These are standard size liners, I came across them as I went to prepare my mini cheesecakes and thought it was a good opportunity to review them. I will use them for my daughter’s birthday next month.
These liners use the popular pink and brown color scheme and they have blue and brown for little princes. These are great for girls of any age, baby showers, birthday parties, or just a girls’ day treat. They are very high quality liners and the colors are very vibrant. Check out the Simply Caked Website to see all the designs they carry. Now, I am back to baking!!!

People Love the Potty Watch for Potty Training
“What a great idea for potty training! Luke loves his Potty Watch – he doesn’t want to take it off. It made a big difference in his attitude and made toilet training a lot more fun. Thank you!” - Amy S., Eagle Mtn., UT
“Alexandra adores the Potty Watch. Getting her to go to the toilet consistently was always a trial. The Potty Watch reminded both of us when it was time to try, and gave her the confidence she needed to finish the job and practically potty train herself.” - Crystal P., Houston, TX
“The Potty Watch helps Clare and I focus on the task at hand, and the silly songs make it fun for both of us.” - Jane H., San Jose, CA
“Our Dr. recommended a potty watch and found yours to be the only one reasonable to buy. Thanks for making potty training help affordable.” - Joshua T., Arvada, CO
“We bought Potty Watches for all of our grandkids because we love the concept. I call it the 4-R wonder gadget. The Potty Watch does the reminding, the parents provide the reward, and the child remembers when to go and takes responsibility for their toilet training.” - Clara P., Rochester, NY
Parents Have a New Ally in Toilet Training!
Half the Battle of Toilet Training is to remind the child when it’s time to go potty. The Potty Watch™ by Potty Time takes care of that job for you. It’s easy for parents and fun for kids.
Children Respond to Musical Reminders
Music and blinking lights get children’s attention in a way that’s gentle and entertaining. When toddlers are busy playing, getting their attention for toilet training can sometimes be a challenge. A child wearing a Potty Watch actually stops what they’re doing and gets your attention to help them go potty.
Experts Advise Parents to Make Toilet Training Fun
From sinking cherrios to reading Once Upon a Potty, experts are stressing how important the fun factor is to potty training. Creating a high-stress situation in which children are unhappy about potty training can leave parents frustrated and children wet.

Okay, I am starting to stress a little. I promised myself I would not. Easter is coming, Michael’s surgery, and vacation literally on the heels of that. Suitcases are down and ready to be packed. I washed all the kids summer clothes, even the new stuff and it is ready to be packed. Shopping is done for Easter dinner, eggs still need to be colored, the Easter Bunny has a lot of eggs and baskets to fill. Lists are made and added to daily of everything that must be done. The van is pretty well cleaned, we just have to put in the floormats we took out to clean and do a few little things and we will be good to pack. I have to get together some fabulously interesting DVDs for the kiddies that will make the long drives go by quickly. So, I have moments of panic that set in, thinking if I will get everything done, even though I realize there are stores all along the way if we forget anything. Last night I had a dream, we forgot the kids life preservers, so they could not go swimming. When the panic sets in, I take a deep breath and try to relax. I have told myself from the beginning, that I was not going to put huge expectations on this trip that would have to be met. That is just not something to do when traveling with 2 toddlers. So I am hoping to clean house, prepare some Easter desserts, get some packing done and relax as much as I can before we take off.
How are you before a big trip? Do you stress? Are you a list maker? Do you set high expectations or do your go with the flow? Share your stories here!!!
Build A Dream Playhouses sent me a Pop N’ Play Castle to review. It was up straight out of the box and only needed about 15 seconds to push a couple of flaps down. My 4 year old was glad to do the exploring. As you can see from the photos he had a grand time. This is great because it can be decorated by the kids with markers, crayons or paint. Makes a great rainy day activity. It would also be a great activity for a birthday party or play date. It is constructed well and is very sturdy. It allows for a lot of imaginary and constructive play.
Calling all princes, princesses, kings and queens to rule the finest flat-pack castle in the land! Simply unfold and watch the castle come alive as medieval archways, workshops, and a drawbridge appear before your eyes. What adventure awaits you beyond the walls of Build a Dream Playhouse’s™ Pop n’ Play Castle?™
