How To Put Together A Car Wash Activity For Squeaky Clean, Toddler Fun

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #Dial2in1 #DialCompletesUs #2in1#CollectiveBias A car wash is one of my boys’ favorite activities!! It is a perfect activity for summer because they can splash and play, and it isn’t messy because it is just soap and water! My boys are super happy with simple bubbles. For some reason, driving in the soapy water, sending the cars down ramps and playing in the suds makes them super happy! When I set up my car wash, I make sure I’m using a nice, gentle soap. Because we are in the pool and at the beach a lot, the sun, chemicals and water can make all of our skin dry. The new Dial Complete® 2 in 1 Foaming Hand Wash gives you soft, smooth hands. Even after repeated washing. 2x moisturizing ingredients vs regular hand soap. Kills…

How Much Strength Does it Take To Be A Mother?

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hefty®. Universally, I think mothers are accepted as strong individuals. The work of a mother never ends, whether working or stay-at- home, yet I wonder exactly how heavy is that work? How much weight do mother’s really carry day in and day out? I set out to see just how strong moms really are, based on research. Because strength is in essence, a power, and by looking at strength this way, I was able to find some astounding research to just how powerful moms really are. Many of us remember the very popular article on the Mental Load that makes us moms all so very tired…despite our sleep. The writer perfectly describes the crazy amount of thoughts we carry, “Often the most tiring aspect of this work is being the “Knower of All the Things.” So often the mom…
