The Melt Method

We have two young boys and the option to slow down is not available to us. Paul just celebrated his 50th birthday and I am quickly approaching my 49th. Even though he is so much older than me, we share one thing that most aging couples do. Pain. Several years ago, both of us suffered back injuries. As we get older, the back flares up. Since I have fibromyalgia, the chronic pain aspect of an old injury is a constant reminder that I need to take care of myself. Seeing a physical therapist every week is just not possible so we went in search of back pain relief that wouldn’t break the bank or require medication.

Petz Beach Review

Our kids, like all other kids, love their video games. The sound of gaming music is a constant din on car trips and gleeful screams of my boys celebrating attaining yet another level or accomplishing a task are the source of endless noise. Like all parents, we worry about video games that are violent and there is always the concern that they may become couch potatoes. Ubisoft, the great brand that brought us Just Dance and Assassins Creed, brings us Petz Beach!

Kids Academy Apps

Paul and I love technology and believe that it is a great resource for learning. If we would have had these options as kids we would definitely have grown up to be astronauts but, alas, we were born too soon. We love introducing the kids to new apps that help in the learning process. Kid Academy has introduced some great choices for early learners that we think are a must on every parent’s iPhone or iPad.

Staying Healthy With YouthH2O

Healthy mind and healthy body- two very important elements when you are committed to your own well-being. Paul and I have been working hard at maintaining our mental well-being through therapy and honest communication. As for our healthy bodies, the process has been to include daily exercise, stretching and eating cleaner every day. I have also been drinking Youth H20 every day for the last few days and I feel fantastic! Instead of loading up a bunch of drug store vitamins and purport to provide the vitamins we need, I am drinking YouthH20 which is packed with organic superfoods that enhance beauty, performance and wellness!

Sol Republic Giveaway

The following is a back to school post about head phones and a speaker system so cool you think you are living in the future.

If you are like us, you just realized that you have to get your kids ready for school. If you are exactly like us, you have one in College, one in 5th grade and the other in 2nd. The little ones need the basic stuff: new backpack, pencils, markers and crayons, all of which will be lost in a month. However, for our college kid who goes to school 3000 miles away and lives in a dorm, her needs are very different. Sure, she may need pencils but she can buy those herself. What then is imperative for your college kid’s back to school supplies? MUSIC!

Reach Toothbrushes

Our 10 year old has braces. Apparently, when he got his braces, the orthodontist put the fear of God into him regarding brushing and flossing. The conversation was something to the effect that his parents were going to spend thousands of dollars so that he can have a great smile and he was going to ruin that by having his teeth ruined by poor brushing. Since the braces came on in February, he has been a trooper. He brushes after every meal and flosses at least once a day. Even with all that, it wasn’t until he started brushing with the new Reach toothbrush that the orthodontist gave him high marks in dental hygiene.
