Pull-Ups® Training Pants are designed specifically to help teach potty training skills. We love that they look and fit just like underwear, and so do our kids! They feel a sense of independence, because they're able to slide their training pants on and off. We all know our kids always need to feel a little in control, which definitely helps while potty training. PLUS..their easy open sides allow for quick and easy changes if accidents happen. 

Once you get started, one of the biggest worries is regression. So whether your little is just starting daycare, or heading back to daycare, once you've started potty training, these tips will help keep you on track. Click below for more tips:

To Recap: 

1. Be consistent. Whether your little is just starting daycare, OR heading back after holiday time and you've recently started potty-training, keep going!

2. Go easy on your little, and yourself. Potty training takes time, and let's be honest, accidents happen. It's how we learn.

3. Make sure your child is ready emotionally. They may be physically, but not emotionally. Don't rush it. When they're ready, it will be much easier.  Wondering if your child is truly ready? Take this quiz, available online at Pull-Ups.com 

4. There are lots of fabulous potty training books out there, so hit the library, or bookstore for some good night reads! Books are a fabulous way to teach kids.

Introducing.. Playtex Sport Compact Tampons

Playtex Sport Compact Logo.jpg

Like most of you, I will never forget the first day I got my period. It’s kind of like a right of passage, entering into womanhood. Although, I was not one of those young girls who was eager for her period. So of course, my period decided to arrive for the first time while I was at a water park. Let’s just say, it was not the best day of my life. 

However, many years later, and as a mom of 3, that time of the month is a normal occurrence and is expected, like making dinner, and doing the laundry. 

Because I’m a busy mom, like you, I need good protection when it comes to my period. Let’s be honest after having kids, good protection is required! I’ve trusted Playtex tampons, the #1 athletic tampon for years. Which is why I’m excited to share a new product with you from Playtex Sport, the NEW Playtex Sport Compact tampons. 

FullSizeRender (4).jpg

Okay, here’s why I love these tampons. Firstly, they have the same trusted quality as all Playtex Sport tampons, but they have added some new awesome features, that as an active Mom, I love and need.

  1. Playtex Sport Compact Tampons have a 360 degree protection. Meaning the tampon is designed to fit your body and its every move, so you’re protected against leaks. ~ 3 Kids later..YES PLEASE! 
  2. The Applicator has a finger grip, so it’s easy to use.
  3. The tampon has FlexFit interlocking fibers to quickly trap leaks. 
  4. Playtex Sport Compact tampons are just that, compact and discrete. They’re 30% smaller than the Playtex Sport full-size tampons. They fit easily in a make-up bag, gym bag, or purse.

These tampons are perfect for busy, active Moms, as well active girls. But really you need to try them out for yourselves. Playtex Sport Compact tampons, are now available exclusively at Shopper’s Drug Mart, in Canada.

The perfect new baby gift!

There is something to be said about an adorable outfit on a fresh new baby. Recently, as you guys know my best friend gave birth to her first baby boy!

I know as her first baby she had received a lot of great gifts from friends and family, butI wanted to get her something different, and special.  A little while ago she commented on the adorable Feltman Brothers dress that my daughter had received and so I knew right then exactly what I wanted to get her new bundle of joy.


Feltman Brothers make stunning, high-quality childrens clothing and has been since 1916.  

The pieces are classic, and from a new mommy perspective the fabric is soft, and because of the high quality lasts a very long time.  We have actually saved our daughters dress because it was so special and the quality was so amazing, that we want to pass it down one day.


This outfit can be found on the Feltman Brothers site if you are looking for a unique baby gift, or a precious clothing item for you own babe.

Getting Our Creative Vibe On With Gel-a-Peel

If your house is anything like ours,  your kitchen table is almost always full of crafts. My kids absolutely LOVE crafting. To be honest, it's the one messy area I really don't mind. Actually, I encourage it. I whole heartedly support kid's crafting, all the time.  My kids love expressing themselves through art. 

So when the highly anticipated, (my daughter was asking everyday when it would arrive) Gel-a-Peel showed up at our door, we were really excited to try it out. And that we we did! All of it, I mean every single tube of it. 

We designed and created our very own bracelets, earrings, pencil toppers, key chains and even decorated a cell phone case. The kids had a great time with the Gel-a-Peel. The product itself is very easy to use, and creates virtually no mess. Each box comes with its own templates to create funky and fun designs. You simply follow the templates, and then allow the gel to try and voila!

My little man had so much fun making bracelets. 


Gel-a-Peel's kept us busy for quite some time, and let's just say I have an abundance of new jewelry. We had a great time with this product, and definitely recommend it for ages 6-8, and even a little younger with an adults help.

If you want to try your own Gel-a-Peel, you can find it at your local Toys"R"Us.


Enjoy XO Vanessa





Stuffy Nose Season Is Here

“Compensation for this post was provided by hydraSense® always remember to read and follow the label. 

Cold season is right around the corner, and keeping my kids healthy throughout the winter months can be a challenge. Even with my preventative routine, someone inevitably gets sick, and when one gets sick, we all get sick. It’s just the way it goes. 

When stuffed up noses begin, that’s when I pull out my hydraSense® Ultra-Gentle Mist nasal spray. This gentle saline spray helps reduce nasal cold symptoms by helping clear my babe’s nasal passages. When cold symptoms are present, I tend to use this gentle spray several times throughout the day, and right before bed so my baby can get some sleep and breathe more easily. When babies are sick they really need their sleep and having a stuffy nose makes it so hard for them to sleep properly. At first, I thought Minnie might not like the spray, but it’s gentle and she actually giggles when I spray her nostrils. There are many benefits to this sterile spray solution, but we like the idea that it’s free of any medications, or preservatives. That’s a big check in our books. 

We love that hydraSense®Ultra-Gentle Mist saline nasal spray is made for kids under 2. We’re stocking up for the winter months, because we know how effective hydraSense® can be for those pesky stuffed noses. 


hydraSense® can be found at your local drugstore, or online at Amazon.ca. 


Tiny Love Gymini® Under The Sea Multi-stage Activity Gym Giveaway!

When you are out of the baby game (or maybe you have not even entered it) you can find it hard to know exactly what is a good item to have for a new babe.  Especially when the baby is young, the options can be over whelming.

As moms of 5 littles (with one more babe on the way) we remind all moms to keep it simple and look for the classics.

That is exactly why we love the Tiny Love Gymini® Under The Sea Multi-stage Activity Gym!

An activity gym that your baby can grow into over the first year makes it a practical toy. 

We loved the Gymini for all the features it included, and the variety of ways your babe will be able to play with it. 

One reason why we both love a good play mat is help much it can help a mama out! Can we say how nice it is to have a safe area that your babe can lay while you get dressed.  You can coo over them as they play with the multiple tags, plush toys or just sit back and admire their cuteness as they talk to themselves in the little mirror.

If you are looking for an item for a new mom or a babe this Christmas make sure to include this on your gift list- and make sure to check out our social media, because right now, we are giving away one of these to a lucky mom!

Check out www.instagram.com/vanessandmelissa for the details!

A Tooth Brush Like Non Other


I don't know about you but teeth brushing around here is not fun!  My son, had no problem brushing his teeth, but from a very early age we could tell my daughter was going to be different!

When we was just a baby she would scream as soon as the toothbrush came out and as she got older it only got worse.  We tried lots of different types of toothbrushes, singing, toothpastes, games ... you name it, nothing worked.

Along with that, us mamas have noticed that many littles are getting cavities ealier than we can remeber as a child, so we both focus big time on keeping our babes mouths clean!


Recently though we learned about this fun new toothbrush called the ISSA.  The ISSA is a cilcon tooth brush that lights up with a smiley face when your done (and even has a sad face if it has been more than 12 hours since you last brushed your teeth).


The sad face is actually what got my daughter brushing more often.  If she now goes into the washroom and sees the sad face lit up, she will brush her pearly whites all by her self! Genius!

This is not the only reason why we love this tooth brush, check out some these amazing features below!

Little Tikes Activity Garden Treehouse..Just In Time For The Holidays!

Okay, so no joke, Minnie my 8 month old baby, has been obsessed with her new Little Tikes Activity Garden Treehouse, for six days straight. 

The moment she lay eyes on the box, she knew this was for her. She was immediately excited, watching as we built this amazing Treehouse of fun. There are literally over 80 activities involved with this play centre, and trust me, I have a 4 and 6 year old, so we have counted them all. LOL. As a parent, one of the features I love about this treehouse, is that it can really grow with your child. We have 3 kids and they've all enjoyed playing with it. The music and lights are especially fun. The songs are very upbeat and exciting for the little ones.  

All these fun sounds, lights, and activities are amazing for Minnie's development and sensory skills. The Magic Lantern, a super fun feature of the centre, has three modes of play: explore colors, dance party and collect fireflies. There are also different shapes to fit through the mailbox, balls to travel along the tubes, a monkey that swings back and forth, and a little doorway to open and close, plus a doorbell, the fun is endless. I also love that you can reshape the treehouse. You can open it up lengthwise, or shape it like a square and sit your baby within it. It's incredibly versatile. 

Another major plus, is that it's easy to build and comes with 3x AA batteries. This Little Tikes Activity Garden Treehouse, has now become the focal point of our play mat and is ideal for 6-36 months. 

You can find this amazing gift idea at Amazon.ca. Happy Shopping!

Phil & Teds Double Stroller

Many of you know that Vanessa and I are mamas to 5 little ones, with one more on the way.  Our two youngest are home with us most of the week (7 months and 3 years old).  So between work, we make sure to have lots of time for play!

With another baby on the way for me as well, I have been on the lookout for a double stroller that would work with our busy and active lifestyle, while still light and compact for my condo.

I put the question out on our social media and got an overwhelming response of mamas that said they were in LOVE with their Phil & Ted DASH stroller! So I looked further into it, and we recently got one for us to test out with our youngest two babes!

Let's just say, we both LOVE IT!

I am so excited to us this with our toddler and new baby when he arrives in the new year, and these are the reasons why!

1. Does not take up a lot of space for a double stroller

This stroller is easy to take shopping, for long walks, and because it is 'inline' we are able to go through small door ways without a problem.  The issue with most double strollers is how wide and heavy that they are.  At only 29lbs as a double and the same width as a single stroller that will not be a problem for us!

2. Location for my cellphone and headset

I love to take walks with my babies, it is so soothing for them and a great gentle workout for mom after having a newborn.  The people at Phil & Teds thought of everything with a convenient spot for my iPhone and headset, so that I can listen to the radio or an e-book on my walk, while babe naps!

3. Easy to fold

This is a big one for me, especially with a toddler and a newborn! You want to be able to fold the buggy quick, jump in the car and go!

4. Puncture proof tires

I live in the core of the city and go through a lot of construction areas, over curbs and take long walks on unpaved paths.  That being said, I love that the DASH features 12" aeromaxx puncture free wheels & front wheel suspension!

5. EVERYTHING is easy

With a flick on hand break, flick out foot rest, easy fold, one hand recline... I feel like the list could go on.  This buggy has all the bells and whistles, and it is super easy to do them all!

6. Cozy and comfy for babe

I just love the soft, plush fabric that the buggy is made of.  It comes with padding for both seats that are plush and are perfect for long buggy rides or naps!

The list really could go on, as we fell in love with this stroller as soon as we pulled it out of the box! If you have any questions feel free to leave them below or on our social media posts online!

In the mean time, make sure you check out the Phil & Teds Site for all their amazing products!




Safety 1st Grow and Go Car Seat

If you've ever had a baby who hates car rides, I feel your pain. I recently switched my baby from a high end infant car seat, to the Safety 1st Grow and Go. I can't even believe how much happier my baby is in this seat. I only wish I had found it earlier. I had been breaking my back carrying my baby around in an incredibly heavy infant seat, that she would cry in on every drive. Considering how much time our littles spend in their car seats, it's such an important decision to make.

Here's why I love this seat:

1. The 3 in one aspect is amazing. This seat can be used from 5lbs to 100lbs. Meaning from newborn, all the way to a 100lbs child, so convenient. Rear facing from 5lbs to 40lbs, forward facing 22lbs to 65 lbs, and then it converts to a booster seat from 40lbs to 100lbs.

2. Depending on the age of your baby, you can easily adjust the recline of the seat with one hand. It has 3 positions to recline in. My baby is 7 months, and level 3 is the perfect recline for her, especially when she falls asleep.

3. Convenience, convenience, convenience...Right?! As moms after safety, convenience is huge. The pads in this seat can be easily removed and machine washed. This is a great feature, since we'll be using this seat for years to come. The double cup holder is also a major bonus. Every toddler needs, and wants a cup holder, and this seat offers 2 cup holders.

4. Affordability! Since this seat is a 3 in one, you'll only need to make one purchase. Your child will literally grow with this seat. I love how economical this is.

5. The happiness factor can't be discounted. My baby loves this seat. She's been a happy camper in the car since we switched her over. The seat is padded and comfortable, and the buckles are so easy to adjust and click together. No fussing here. Happy baby, happy Mommy!

HOT Toy ALERT! Project Mc2 Doll with Experiment & H20 Remote Control Car

If you haven't heard of Project Mc2, then you're probably not a 6+ girl, but that's okay. This is where we come in. Being 2 moms who blog and vLog, we're fortunate to get our hands on some of the coolest toys to hit the market.

As moms of girls, and being women ourselves, we're very conscious of the messages around our physical appearances. It's hard to get away from the beauty obsessed culture we live in. So when our eldest girl started watching Project Mc2 on Netflix, we were just fine with it. The show revolves around 4 super smart, cool girls who love doing science experiments and are always on some kind of exciting mission to save the world. Now every awesome show needs some toys to go along with it. Introducing the Project Mc2 Dolls with Experiments & the H2O Remote Control Car.

 Above is the Project Mc2 leader, McKeyla. With this confident character, you can make your very own glitter globe light, using safe ingredients you already have at home; water, glitter and glycerine. She was a total hit in our house! In addition to the experiment, her hair was very easy to style.


We had a lot of fun styling her, illuminating her glitter globe light and doing her hair. Along with the doll, we also tried out the H20 Remote control car, that is it's own fun experiment. The car actually runs on H20 and is powered by steam, very cool and echo friendly. We simply placed the engine in the car, attached the wires, filled the can with water and fueled the car, with water that is. The car is remote and when activated the head lights turn on, the steam comes out the back pipes, and the car moves in all sorts of directions. It was a fun change giving our daughter her very own remote control car, since they always seem to be marketed as boy's toys. This was her first remote control car, and she LOVED playing with it. The car fits two dolls and is very stylish. Lots of playing time here, mamas. 

We would definitely recommend the Project Mc2 toy line, for girls age 6+. These toys encourage creativity, imagination, confidence, and are fun. You can find the Project Mc2 toy line at: Toys “R” Us, Loblaws, Walmart.

Unboxing: Num Noms Series 2

Not too long ago, the Num Noms entered our home. To be honest, I had not heard of these cute little Num Noms, but my kids sure had. So you can imagine the excitement when I gave them a full Num Noms starter kit, plus Lip Gloss maker. Yes, pure joy. It was hours of exploration, play and entertainment. I'm not sure about you, but from this moms perspective, that's a win.

Although I loved that this new toy series kept them busy, the fact that the kids loved playing with these cute, smelly, creative little Num Noms was the actual win here. Each surprise pack had a different little Num Nom inside, which you attach to a container to create your own funky combo. And let's not forget the Lip Gloss maker. Total hit! I don't know what it is about kids and lip gloss, but they can never have enough. So why not let them make their own?

Click below, to get an up close look at our kids unboxing and playing with these fun little Num Noms:

Lily & Val Keepsake Kitchen Dairy

I can still remember making strudel with my Oma, when I was a little girl.  Or Christmas cookies, that melted in my mouth.  I have such a fondness for the recipes but also the memories that are sketched in my heart of the time I spent with the Oma.  No other cookie tastes quite like hers....

When my son was born, I had my Oma over to make those cookies again, so I could capture a new memory with my first born and to make sure I had the recipe for years to come. (although you can see.... he wasn't quite yet as excited to be baking in he kitchen LOL)

Being in the kitchen creates memories, it's full of love and joy! I have always had a love for the kitchen and I make a point to bring my littles into the kitchen with me often, to hopefully create a love for baking and cooking with them as well.  Now a little older, my son had expressed how much he loves cooking with mama in the kitchen! Just look at my last Christmas card from him! (My heart is exploding right now!!.....)

So when I heard about the Lily & Val Keepsake Kitchen Diary, I knew I needed one for my kitchen!

The moment that I opened the package my heart was exploding, not a detail was missed! From the beautiful front cover, the the quality of each page, as I turned I feel more in love.  

If you are a recipe freak like me, you have them piled high and this book gives you the perfect place to store them all.  With measurements and beautiful drawings inside, it captured my heart (and my daughters). You can see us look through it here, and just how much she loved it too!

Watch our vLog "Cooking With Soul" when we first got to use the Lily & Val Recipe Diary

My artsy side loved the layout, the hearts that you can check off for the level of difficult of the recipe and the area that I can doodle or put notes in.  

However, as you probably gathered from the start of my blog, one of the most important part of baking for me..... is creating the memories.  This book doubles as a Kitchen Diary.  There is a page beside the recipe where you can keep the memories that are tied to that recipe.

My husbands father makes hands down the best stuffing at Thanksgiving, but what made it even more special was that my son tasted it, jumped around and said it was the yummiest thing he had ever eaten.  Since that day his grandfather will make him his own batches of this stuffing.  I cannot wait to get the recipe, and put those memories in there for me to remind him of when he is older!

If you know a mama who loves to be in the kitchen, or a mommy-to-be, I think this would be such an amazing gift especially for a bridal or baby shower.

Green Goo

What does your medicine cupboard look like? Vanessa and I joke, because we don't even have medicine cupboards.  Most of the time, if we need something, we head out and get it.  However beyond that, we like to try and stay as natural as possible with our remedies. 

Our cleansing routines include coconut oil, shea butter, and Melissa's father in-law even makes her a hand cream, at home in his kitchen.  If we can reduce chemicals being in our homes, or on our skins, we are all about it!

What is Green Goo?

Recently we fell upon GREEN GOO.  A company started by a mom and her daughter, with the same aspirations we have, when it comes to staying au natural. They created this amazing product line, perfect for the entire family and it can replace almost everything you have in your your medicine cabinet. How amazing is that?!

  • Have a booboo from a bike fall? Put some Green Goo on it.
  • Dry under the eyes, with dark circles? Use Green Goo before bed (Moms with babies, can I get an AMEN!).
  • Have a growing baby belly that you want to keep extra soft and moisturized, while avoiding stretch marks? Green Goo has a Mommy and Baby line!
  • Diaper Rash, skin burn, bug bites?  You can use Green Goo on all that too!

You can see where we are going with this.  If you could carry one product and use it to remedy every day bumps, bruises, dry skin, cuts, rashes, sunburns, cradle cap..and more... would that not be amazing? GREEN GOO is just that! We love this line!

Our Own Experience


When I first got the Green Goo I was not quite sure what to expect.  However within a few nights of placing it under my eyes, I fell in love.  I placed it on before bed and when I woke up my eyes were less puffy than usual and so smooth! (What tired mom doesn't love the idea of that!?) 
Then my son came home with a rash after Hockey one night. His neck protector had irritated it so badly that he was in tears. I gently rubbed some of the Green Goo over it, which was going to be the first test, because most creams or balms actually irritate his sensitive skin.  Not only did he approve of me using it, because it did not hurt him, the next morning the rash had reduced to almost nothing!  


Seriously! Every pregnant mama needs the Belly Balm in their lives?! This balm is amazing. Extremely moisturizing, but doesn't feel too oily. Goes on smoothly and just feels so great on. I've even been lathering my dry, tired mama feet every night with it. Every pregnant mama deserves this belly balm.

Feltman Brothers

Classic, timeless, beautiful and quality are just some of the words I would use to describe the Feltman Brothers children's clothing line. The company has been around for over a century and they're still producing gorgeous stuff. I actually remember my mother dressing my sisters and me in their gowns and bonnets when we were little. So when we had the chance to dress Melissa's gorgeous babe in a gown, we couldn't resist capturing the beauty of her in this outfit.  

From baby to toddler, girl or boy, they offer many different looks and styles, offering several collections to choose from. They also create the most beautiful and precious gowns and outfits for those very special occasions, such as christenings and baptisms. 




Like any moms we love what's hot when it comes to fashion and style, but there is just something so incredibly special and unique about the Feltman Brothers designs. Their look will transport you to a time of classic elegance and innocence, that is often missing in the world today. 

Have a peek for yourself at http://www.feltmanbrothers.com and you'll know what we mean.  XO
