Captain Jack Sparrow

I have been mixing up some Pink Zebra Sprinkles scents. One word “Amazing!”

One of the scents I mixed was called Captain Jack Sparrow, which is made up of Turquoise Waters and Patchouli Sandalwood.

My review on this mix is that it smells great. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes a musky scent. It smells a little manly so it would be great for the man in your life!

Potty Training 101

So it’s official, potty training has begun in our household!  Viking tot has his new little potty all set up just for him in his bathroom.  So far so good with only a few accidents.  He knows that you sit on the potty and “flush” it after.   And yes he has the potty with all the bells and whistles.  It plays a song when liquid touches the sensors in the bowl and is able to be flushed which plays a flushing sound and encouragement.

We purchased it (actually two) at Babies R Us for $26.99 each before coupons.  If this seems too expensive for a potty chair (cost wise), they also offer ones that are place right onto the seat of a toilet.  We chose the one we did because we always teach/encourage tot to be independent, also because he loves doing things on his own.

If you are a fellow momma and are looking into potty training (or are having trouble) take a step back for a second and breathe.  Your little one will get the hang of it eventually.  Don’t force it because then your little one will rebel making it frustrating for you and them.  Go with the flow and everything will work out!

I will be keeping you all updated with how potty training is going.  If anyone has any questions/concerns about how their potty training journey is going, tell me about it!

Fall Crafting

I love the month of October!  Well mostly because at the end of the month is Halloween.  Having Viking tot makes Halloween so much more exciting.  I still haven’t decided on what he is going to be yet. The marine and I will be going soon to look. Neither of us can agree on something so maybe if we look together we will be able to agree.

The leaves have been changing more lately and it makes me want to do some serious crafting.  I haven’t started at resin jewelry yet, mostly because life is chaos and I haven’t gotten to it, but I really want to try.  Pinterest is the best place to go and look at different crafts to attempt.  I say attempt because they don’t always go the way you want.

I am currently leaning towards a tot friendly craft that Viking tot and I can do together. So now it’s time for me to check out Pinterest and *fingers crossed* find one.
