Surviving “Sniffles” Season (and the White Cloud Ultimate Comfort Sweepstakes)

This post brought to you by White Cloud. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s the end of February, so I guess I should wish you happy Sniffle Season!  You know, the time of year when cold/flu season is winding down and allergy season is getting ready to go?  The time of year when I feel like I should just tape a tissue to my kids’ noses!

Besides tissues, I’m always trying to stay stocked up on items that give us comfort when we’re feeling crummy. Snuggly blankets, hot tea, bubble bath supplies, local honey.  I need to just have a little Sniffles Season Kit I take out so we have the comforts right there at hand.  Facial tissues, of course, are a MUST.

That’s where White Cloud comes in. White Cloud Facial Tissue, only available at Walmart is the perfect companion when your nose brings you down. The softness and comfort of White Cloud products means each tissue is more than just a tissue – it’s more like a comforting hug.  White Cloud products promise premium quality without the premium price. Find a Store Near You so you can check out these products- which come, by the way, in over 19 designs so you can probably find something that works with your decor.

GoodNites Bed Mats Help Boost Kids’ Confidence

There’s a phase for many kids between being potty trained and being dry at night.  For some kids, it’s a short time, for others, a really long time.  The older kids get, the less they want to have to wear absorbent pants of any kind- and I can’t say I blame them.  My littlest one has bedwetting accidents at night- and I’d be fine with her in pullups for a while but she wants to be a “big kid” and be in underwear at night. I can either let her sleep in pullups and have a battle of wills every.single.night or I can find a solution that works for both of us.  I don’t know about you but this isn’t a battle I want to choose- so I’ve found a solution that offers a compromise.  GoodNites Bed Mats let HER be a “big kid” and me not have a dirty load of bedding to wash several mornings per week. The Bed Mats are sized to fit under where your child sleeps- a generous size but not so big it covers the whole mattress.  There are 4 large sticky tabs that peel off and give a really good grip on your mattress or sheet to keep the bed nice and dry.  They offer a nice solution for sleepovers, travel, and more.  It’s easy to quickly get one of these mats on, and they don’t make a noticeable sound when you move on top of them so your child won’t have to worry that others may “hear” and “know” that they have a mat underneath.  I didn’t do a lot of sleepovers as a kid because I had so many accidents and I would hate for my kid or others to miss out just for that reason.  This way, everyone wins.

You can see the Bed Mats outline by her little hand (and yes, we do sleep in fashionable accessories in our house!) under her sheet.

Helpful for parents- less laundry.  My little one just wants to be a big kid, and does not want to sleep in pullups or any kind of absorant pant at night.  The Bed Mats allow her to sleep in undies and me to not have to wash her bed sheets every day of the week. With the Bed Mats, it isn’t a battle of wills.  She can do her undies, I can save my laundry sanity.  When we went to Boston last week, I just tucked a few Bed Mats in my bag for nights, and didn’t have to worry about her having an accident in a hotel bed.  I love these mats. There’s no laundry, they are easy to use, easy to clean up, and with a coupon, they don’t cost a ton.  Very convenient, very easy- and a very good compromise.

Helpful for kids-  They have the confidence of the mat just in case, but aren’t stuck wearing asborbant pants or having a rubber sheet.  It’s not fun to be “older” and still having accidents- this I know, because *I* was still having accidents well into 4th grade. My little one is 100% fine with the bed mat on her sheet, as long as she doesn’t have to wear “baby” diapers to bed.  She doesn’t have accidents daily, and if this saves from a huge battle at bedtime each night, I’m all for it.

GoodNites Bed Mats have been so popular that over 50,000 American Shoppers voted and chose these at the 2013 Product of the Year in the Children’s Products Category! That’s saying a lot! I can see why- easy to use, discreet for kids, and a great way for kids to have a little more confidence at bedtime.  You can read more about the award in this Parade article that was released recently and also download a $1.00 coupon for GoodNites.

Bright and colorful styles for Spring from The Children’s Place (Giveaway)




I have to say, while I don’t necessarily miss the fashions from the late 1980’s, the bright, bold and vibrant colors that are making  a splash for spring fashions at The Children’s Place are childrens place tween spring fashions

She is not wearing the belted denim neon patch shorts yet, or at least, not without leggings underneath.  She’s determined to wear grey leggings under the shorts.  The striped ruffle tank is grey with the neon green stripes so I suppose it works.  She LOVES this look.  I have to steal the sequin icon sweatshirt to wash it because she wants to wear it so much! The shorts have adjustable waist- very key since kids grow and change so much from month to month- day to day, week to week?  (My kids sometimes have to after a big meal!)  I love the details on these pieces- the fun bow on one shoulder of the tank, the ruffle at the bottom- fun touches that the kids adore!

My favorite piece from the spring line is the tutu mesh skirt which I’m sad to report is not on the site right now but I hope it comes back, the kids want to get it for a friend for her birthday.  It’s just darling.  It’s “cool” enough that they feel hip, but “cute” enough that mom is satisfied.  You can pair this skirt with a casual tee to dress it down or jazz it up with some sparkles or a fun jewel cardigan sweater  like my older daughter is doing. Just a guess but the look my 3 year old is sporting is probably *not* what the designers had in mind…although the colors totally work together.  Don’t you agree?  Another favorite thing about The Children’s Place- almost all of their pieces can be mix and match.  That means we parents get more for our money, and kids can express their personal styles!

The flower print jeggings are over the top cute. My daughter dances around when she wears these calling them her fashion show pants.  They are a bi big on her but she’ll fit them at least for a year- with the adjustable waist, they’ll actually stay up!  She loves to wear the skirt over them, but my favorite is with a solid colored tee and a cute little shrug sweater or a sequin zip-up fleece hoodie. I also like knowing they’ll stand up to whatever she does in them- dancing, playing, singing, rolling down hills!

The boys have some fabulous items for spring too.  I am in love with plaid shorts for my son right now and will be grabbing him a few pairs. (The Children’s Place did send us an outfit for him but it was a size 8 and he’s nowhere near that big so we donated the outfit).  I love the preppy look and I think it’s adorable and cool on little guys.
