This post was sponsored by the Role Mommy Writer's Network. All opinions are 100% my own.
I have 5 kids, ages 10, 9, 7, 5, and 1. Whether you’re a new mom or dad, or a well-seasoned mom of 5 like me, there are always situations that come up that leave us scratching our heads. Like when the babies have their days and nights mixed up or they haven’t pooped in a few days.
One question that keeps getting me, is about night terrors and nightmares. Holy cow! My oldest had night terrors when she was very young. It was...well...terrifying. I had no idea why it was happening, or how to deal with it. I did know that stress and tiredness can contribute to them, but she was such a happy person and never gave me trouble going to sleep. She took two naps every day and had a good appetite. She was an only child at that time, so all of my attention was on her. She never needed anything for more than 5 minutes. To say the least, it was extremely confusing.
I was given an opportunity to get a copy of a new book that gives expert answers to parents’ top 150 questions. Night terrors and nightmares are covered in it. I wish I had this book back then.
Baby & Toddler Basics explains the difference between night terrors and nightmares, when to expect them and how to minimize the occurrence. The book says to try to wake them up about 15 minutes before they usually occur in order to break the cycle. I sure could have used that advice back then. I just sat with her until it passed and stayed terrified during, and for a while after it was finished. I felt horrible for her, even though she didn’t even remember it had happened.
You may have seen the author, Tanya Altmann, on the “Live with Kelly and Ryan" show on January 31st. She is a renowned, practicing pediatrician. I did see a couple of things in the book that I have different opinions on (like the section on sleeping through the night), but overall, I loved Baby & Toddler Basics.
I can’t wait to utilize the book. I have quite a few ages going on and can finally have some great answers to the questions that I’ve had for years now.
Want to check it out? The book was just released on February 6th. You can buy it on amazon.
What questions did you have that you wished you could have answered with expert advice that actually worked for you and your child? Let me know in the comments. Let’s converse!
Have a wonderful day, ya’ll!

BeForthRight Surveys used to be Innopoll. They work much in the same way as in payments (still immediate to Paypal), or you can choose another option. You can also save up your earnings to cash out at a later time. I usually do Paypal payments right after I finish a survey. It's usually $3 for longer surveys, $2 for medium length ones and $1 for shorter ones. You set a preference for your desired length/payments.
There are Forthright surveys and partner surveys. Forthright surveys come less often than the partner surveys, but whether or not you qualify for the survey, you still get a loyalty star. Once you have 3 stars, you get a $2 reward.
Oh! and you can complete up to 3 surveys a day. So, if you can qualify for 3 surveys a day, (so not hard to do), than you can make about $9 a day! Pretty sweet deal.
The interface is very user-friendly and straight-forward. Everything is right there for you to see and there's not a lot of extra, not useful filler type stuff everywhere. I love that.
I've been paid from this one so many times already. I've been a member for a while. Just shy of a year, I think.
What's your favorite survey company? Let me know in the comments! We can converse!

I've put a donation button on my homepage at the top right. I want to keep it there year-round and help families in need with different things throughout the year.
Currently, I donate my samples that I get to the local shelters and I love to help out the local safe havens for animals. I participate and frequent Freecycle.org regularly to help families and to help keep things out of the landfills. I'd love to be able to do more.
Here's what I'm thinking. The cause will change as the seasons and holidays change. For right now, I thought a good thing would be donations to help food banks and shelters. I'd love to be able to give to the safe havens for pets as well. I'll send out a new post when the cause changes. If you guys have a suggested cause, I'd love to hear that too!
If you have suggestions, just let me know. I'd love to hear them. This is a work in progress and I'd love to know what ya'll think. You can leave a comment on this post, or on my facebook page, or email me directly at [email protected]
If you'd like to help, you can click on the donate button on my homepage.
I sure hope everyone has a wonderful day and an awesome New Year's!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.
So you need a wig for whatever reason. Or maybe you just love to change up your look here and there. Finding a trust-worthy company can be hard. There's so many different suppliers out there and you never know what you're going to get. Now you can rest easy and look no further, because Divatress is the leader in black hair care. They offer thousands of products and brands. They believe everyone should feel like a diva.
Their website is super easy to navigate and find exactly what you're looking for. I was looking at the Lace Front Wigs. OMG...they are gorgeous! You have so many options to add some color, shorten or lengthen your look, or even add a braid or ponytail. With so many pricing options, you're sure to find your perfect style at Divatress.
I decided to look through the lacefront wig section, because they are so popular. They usually look more natural than other options, which is important to most of us. No one wants to look like they're wearing a wig. They're ready to wear and look like it's supposed to be there. You really can't go wrong with them. Now that's what I call beauty.
New to the wig game? No problem. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and you'll find a link to the instructions. You can check out the 'About Divatress' link to so that you can learn all about the company and their mission.

Picking the Right Lipstick for You
Lavishly shaded lips have dependably been connected with sparkling great well-being. At the point when nature did not give the lips a sufficient flush actually, beauty care products gave them a little offer assistance. Lipstick stays a standout amongst the most prominent restorative choices, adding shine to an expert search and appeal for a night trip.
The most punctual monetarily accessible lipsticks were not sticks by any stretch of the imagination. Lip tints came in cakes of squeezed color and were connected with a brush. They organized on-screen characters overstate their elements to make expressions less demanding to see from the back columns, however the beauty care products were just worn in front of an audience. The films changed that, and on-screen characters who had learned subtler application systems started to wear their blushed lips off the set, making resurgence in lipstick design.
Picking an Incredible Lipstick
In spite of the fact that there is no such thing as a right lipstick, there are a lot of wrong ones. Locate an extraordinary lipstick by paying consideration on shading hints, transparency, and splendor.
At the point when looking for a lipstick, note the color hints as opposed to the essential color. Makeup specialists arrange skin tones and cosmetics tints as warm, cool, or unbiased taking into account its undercurrents. Shades with a brilliant, yellow, or orange connotation are warm; those with blue or purple are cool. A genuine fuchsia, for instance, is a cool pink since it has a little measure of blue in the blend. Poppy is a warm red since it is blended with a touch of orange.
A color should likewise suit the wearer's skin tone. When in doubt, the more prominent the difference between the skin tone and the lipstick, the more emotional and observable the lip color will be. Think about a reasonable cleaned individual in profound plum or a man with mahogany skin in a pale artful dance shoe pink to outline this idea. On the other hand, lower contrast looks less recognizable and along these lines less sensational.
Wardrobe color decisions ought to educate lipstick choices. While it is not important to coordinate a red dress to red lipstick exactly, the two shades of red ought to have comparative hints. When in doubt, combine warm shades with tans, tans, olive greens, and gold. Pick cooler lipstick shades with soul, purples, and grays.
Lipsticks change in their haziness, completion, and composition. Search for a lipstick that suits dry, dried out lips' dampness needs and pick an emollient formula. Long-wearing recipes might be a good fit for the individuals who have a major occasion arranged; not worrying about successive touch-ups might be worth spoiling lips a while later.
Lipstick may not venture out any sweat to the workplace and to a supper date. Splendid, high- differentiate lipsticks pull center; this is an advantage for a cosmetics style that requires a strong mouth, yet it can occupy at a conference. To wear brighter tints for day, search for a transparent cream equation that adjusts a brilliant tone with a repressed completion.
For night, any shade of lipstick can be proper. A night out is an ideal opportunity to wear brilliant or sparkling shades. In any case, evening lips don't need to be strong. An unbiased, low- differentiate lipstick can make a successful foil for emotional eye cosmetics.
Nordstrom offers a large number of beauty products including lipstick, nail polish, skin care products etc. You can get lipstick of any color with Nordstrom online coupons by visiting the beauty section.

New Technology Slashes Electricity Bills for Texans
This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.
Many Texans, myself included, are so super tired of your electricity bill running through the roof and gouging your pockets where you keep all your hard-earned money. I know this feeling all too well...with bills up to $400-$500 every month in the high months. It can be hard for the average family to keep paying these types of bills. Well, there is an alternative out there, (if you’re not in a regulated area). I was fortunate enough to be included in a sponsored post for a company called Energy Ogre.
If you live in a deregulated market in Texas (and millions do), there is a new technology company that is helping people save 40-60% off their energy bills. Sadly, this is not the case for me. I live in a regulated area...so I don’t have any options unless I want to move to a different city. BUT...those of you who don’t live in a regulated area, are so lucky. Just keep reading...you guys are going to love me after reading this!
I know. I know. You’re skeptical. You don’t like change. You think it’s too good to be true. My husband is the biggest skeptic I know, and he’s pretty hardcore about it, but even he is open to entertaining the idea of moving. With savings this significant, it sure seems like it would be worth it.
We all know the proof is in the pudding, right? So here’s what I’d like to ask you to do...
First, take just a few minutes and use this savings calculator to learn what you could be paying based on your usage. Energy Ogre is a one-of-a-kind technology company. The technology scours the current offers in Texas and finds the best deal for you. Homeowners, apartment renters, business owners are all saving some SERIOUS money.
Important Note: Energy Ogre is NOT an energy provider and the company doesn't get paid by any energy provider for preferential treatment. They only find the best deal for the end consumer. They are a highly rated company with 5.0 reviews.
I did start the sign-up process to see how it would be for you guys. You just enter your basic information along with a little info about your electric company. I had a bill handy, so I went ahead and filled out the meter number. The second page is where you let them know some of your preferences, including whether you want to enroll in renewable (green) products. You’ll also let them know if you’re under contract with your current company, and list any providers that you would rather not work with. There are only 3 simple pages to the sign-up process. Here’s a screenshot I took of the second page:
After using the calculator and learning how much you can save, you have the option to pay Energy Ogre $10 a month to become your "administrative assistant" and make changes on your behalf. This takes the hassle out of dealing with your energy providers and you just sit back and save big money!
Check out what the press is saying about Energy Ogre!
Here are a just a few reviews that you can read on their Facebook Page:
Alisha: "My bill got up to almost $200 a month in the summer in a small one-bedroom apartment. Now my bill has never been even close to $50 a month. I am so happy and thankful for this company who helped me save some much needed money for other bills!"
Bernie: "Went with Energy Ogre 3 months ago, previously w/TXU for years @ .095 / KWH - bills ran anywhere from $160 - $300 - first three months w/ Energy Ogre - bills were Sept - $49, Oct.- $59, and Nov.-$57 - and we're an all electric house."
Adam: "Energy Ogre is the best! I got out of a contract with an early termination fee and still saved lots of money!"
"Houston-based Energy Ogre’s focus is on electricity but at its heart, this is a technology company that uses analytics to find a rate that fits their clients’ demand profile." via Houston Business Journal
Kathy: "Got my first bill after signing up with Ogre and my bill dropped from the high $200s to $85! I was in shock .. but very happy!"
The personnel behind Energy Ogre have been involved with the Texas electricity markets since well before they deregulated in 2002. This group has built power plants, scheduled fuel and electricity and even owned and managed Retail Electricity Providers in the recent past. In 2013 they decided to create Energy Ogre to help end use customers fully unlock the benefits of the deregulated electricity markets.
So, what do you think? Worth a look? I should say so. There’s a lot of potential savings at stake! After you do the savings calculator, comment and let me know what your estimated savings were...I’d love to hear the results!

The Effects Of Music During Pregnancy
There is a great deal of child development that takes place before your child has even entered the world. By the time your unborn child is ten weeks old, they will already be moving their limbs and by the time the third trimester rolls around, the child can not only hear your voice, but also taste your food.
A number of studies have shown that exposure to music while in the womb can help the development process. It's quite convenient to get music cds and other aids at budget prices when you use 10% off coupon codes for overstock.com, so it's not difficult to implement this kind of activity. However, while research has proven that children are able to hear sounds clearly during pregnancy and that the amniotic fluid is a quality sound conductor, the specific effects of music on a child during a pregnancy can be difficult to ascertain, for obvious logistical reasons.
Experts are split on the effects of music during pregnancy, with some believing that there are quantifiable long term effects, while others are opposed to the idea. Since there is no medical consensus as to whether music helps a fetus or simply serves as an annoyance, it is important to play music in a cautious manner.
The effects are most often realized when the mother is able to relax and unwind by listening to soothing, relaxing music. When the mother is able to relax, the fetus is able to, as well. The benefits that the child experiences as a result of their mother's musical choices are purely coincidental.
Another school of thought believes that a mother should rest a set of headphones directly on her stomach. This is a major misconception and there is no need to do so. You do not have to turn up the volume in order for your child to enjoy what you are listening to. Music that is played at normal volume on a stereo can be heard just as easily.
If you are going to play music for your child during pregnancy, the best choice is classical. The range of notes used in most classical music can be arranged in a manner that resembles a lullaby, which will soothe the child. Any music that is harsh or excessively aggressive, including heavy metal and hardcore rap, should be avoided, as they are not soothing to an unborn child.
The last thing a mother wants to do is startle her baby. While there is very little evidence to suggest that music has a strong effect during pregnancy, a mother's relaxation and comfort is incredibly important to the child's development. So, even if the child is not experiencing any direct effects as a result of listening to music during pregnancy, they are able to reap the benefits of a happy and healthy mother.
