The Otter, the Spotted Frog & the Great Flood (Children's Book~Review)

Disclosure: I received the book below from Wisdom Tales Press to help facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and honest. 

"There were two animal people who lived in the long ago..."

The story of The Otter, The Spotted Frog & The Great Flood is retold by Gerald Hausman. It is based off of the Georgia Creek Indian story telling about the first man and the first woman. This story throws in wisdoms to listen to your elders and nature.

Listener the Otter was told to build a raft because there is going to be a flood. But does he listen to Spotted Frog? Does he build the raft? After the flood starts you are brought through the story from animal to animal. Then eventually to man. Follow the characters through the book as they see what is happening around them and learn where life is directing them.

Ramon Shiloh's colorful artwork really brings this story to life.  While the artwork on every page is unique, but as you read from page to page you still get a strong sense of continuity. My favorite images in the book are that of the manatees and the fish!

Weaving in traditional values and the idea of listening to nature, first man and first woman lived on earth "..the earth was good to them, so they say, and they were good to the earth in retun."

Buy it: Wisdom Tales Press

Win It: Wisdom Tales Press is giving one of my readers a copy of The Otter, The Spotted Frog & The Great Flood. Enter below.

Winner must be 18+ and a resident of the US.

Dr. Woods Facial Cleansing Bar Review

Disclosure: I received the product below to help facilitate my review. All opinions are based on my experience with the product.

Dr. Woods soaps use sustainable, eco-friendly practices. Only the best ingredients found across the world are used to produce these soaps in the USA.

The Raw Black Facial Cleansing Bar is made with organic argan oil and shea butter. These ingredients work to repair damaged skin, moisturize, improve elasticity and prevent facial lines.

It is gluten free and 100% vegan. 
Free of paraben, phthalate, lauryl/laureth sulfate and petroleum derivatives. 

I have been wanting to get a natural facial cleanser but hadn't really found something that caught my eye. I am very pleased with how Dr. Woods facial cleansing bar works with my skin. It lathers well and has a smooth silky feeling with a mild natural scent.

Dr. Woods -All Things Good-
"... we strive to use only the most natural, effective and sustainable ingredients we can find."

DIY Play Dough

Last Christmas a friend of mine gave my children a Gold Medal Flour Children's Cookbook. It has delicious recipes as well as some craft recipes.

My oldest has been playing with Play Doh since he was a toddler. My current toddler is not trusted with said dough, he eats it, he throws it, he feeds it to the dog, he smears it into any nearby surface. None of which is cool with me.

I was always afraid to make play dough. Not sure why, maybe I didn't think it would turn out or it would be lumpy and look bad. Ok, yeah, those are the reasons I never made play dough.

Yesterday I decided to give it a try. I used the recipe in the cook book mentioned above.

It was easy (besides my arm getting sore from stirring)!

Turned out pretty good, right? You want to give it a try now, huh? 

Here is the recipe:

1 Cup (Gold Metal) all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
15 drops of food coloring

How To
1. Put all ingredients in 1-1/2 quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat about 4 minutes, stirring very hard, until mixture forms a ball. (Hardest part, your arm will feel fatigued when you are done!)

2. Take ball of dough out of saucepan, and let stand on counter 5-10 minutes to cool.

3. Squeeze dough about 30 seconds or until it is mixed and smooth. Cool completely. Play.

As far as storage, GM Flour suggests storing in refrigerator up to 2 weeks. My MIL makes play dough, she has never stored it in the fridge and it lasted months, rather than weeks. I don't plan on putting it in the fridge. Have you made dough? How did/do you store it?

This recipe makes a ball of dough roughly the size of a soft ball.

Besides just free play in the dough. I use it for home school/educational purposes as well. 

Here we used alphabet printouts from 1+1+1=1.

There is a different page for each letter. Each letter has an animal that also starts with the letter.

We also used our red and blue play dough to discuss colors. We mixed red and blue to make purple play dough.

This was a great recipe, I'll probably never buy Play Doh again!

Have you tried to make your own play dough? Did you succeed? 
Have you wanted to, but like me didn't want it to be a flop?

Release the Rock-A-Bums! New 2.0 Giveaway!

Rock-A-Bums 1.0 diaper is one of my go-to diapers. I go between RAB and one other brand as my favorites. The only reason this one has had to share the number one spot is it's lack of a tummy panel. But, because Rock-A-Bums listens to their fans, this diaper may end up in my #1 spot!

Rock-A-Bums just came out with their new diaper design, the 2.0, a new Rock-A-Bums 5-in-1 cloth diaper.

Check out the new design features:

  • Tummy panel! Yes, tummy panels are wonderful if you have a boy or tummy sleeper, and especially if you have a boy that is a tummy sleeper... which I do! Not having a tummy panel leads to leaks during sleep times. With the new design and tummy panel I could put this on my little man anytime during the day!

  • Two pocket openings! Ok, so what's the big deal with two openings. If you have never used a diaper with two pocket openings, man, once you do, you'll look down on all the single opening pocket diapers in your stash! Having two pocket openings means you do not have to un-stuff your diapers! No, really. I was a skeptic the first time I threw a double opening diaper into the machine with the insert still tucked inside. Well, sure enough, it agitated out on its own. Less mess for me to touch! Also the opening in the back is very generous, offering an easy space to stuff (especially for those huge daddy hands).

  • Two snaps instead of three. Easier to snap the diaper of a wriggly toddler. But don't worry all you hook and loop fans, there is still a velcro option! 
  • New fabric, proprietary to Rock-A-Bums, lining the inside of the diaper cover. It will quickly wick away moisture and it is hospital grade hypo allergenic. It is nice and soft toward the baby's skin, yet smooth on the inside so inserts will slide in easily!

  • Other Great Features: Two inserts! Each is topped with micro fleece, so it is safe to rest directly against your child's skin! They also have a snap on one end which you can snap-in in the front (my suggestion for a boy as AI2 option) or in the back (for a girl). There is a wider elastic band along top backside of the diaper to keep in messes. The one I just got has velcro closure, there are laundry tabs to secure the velcro tabs to so you can avoid them getting hung up on other diapers or inserts in the wash.

As I mentioned above this is a 5-in-1 diaper. If you aren't familiar with Rock-A-Bums, it means the diaper can be used in 5 different ways:

  • Pocket Diaper- Simply stuff the pocket with the insert.
  • All-In-One- Stuff pocket with insert and snap in. The insert will stay with the diaper while laundering.
  • All-In-Two- Lay the insert inside the diaper cover and snap/velcro on baby. No stuffing. This is possible because the top layer of the insert is not microfiber.
  • Hybrid- You can use any disposable liner in this diaper shell. Many people use them for camping, family vacations or visiting friends/family and don't have access to a washing machine.
  • Bomb Shell- I have not had any leaks with this diaper shell. This shell should keep in and contain all those poopy messes! You can even use it over a disposable diaper for extra protection. I remember before switching to cloth, anytime my son was on my hip and peed... well, I'd have to change my shirt. Bomb Shell over the top of a disposable could help protect my clothing!
  • Swim Diaper- Ok, I know I said it was a 5-in-1, but it also has a 6th use as a swim diaper. Simply put it on baby (or toddler) before heading out for a swim (without an insert) and you have yourself a cute swim diaper. No more chemical, bulging, gunky disposable swim diaper! 

You know what else is great about Rock-A-Bums?! They are offering one of their new 2.0 Rock-A-Bums 5-in-1 diapers to one of my readers. The winner gets the choice of color and closure.

Connect with Rock-A-Bums on Facebook, Twitter and the Web.

Buy it: Visit the RAB website to purchase the 2.0 diaper for $16.95.  The 1.0's are on sale for $8.50, which is an AMAZING deal, but it will only last until they are gone!

Condor Trek Kids - Storyland Yoga Book Review

Discolsure: I received the product below to help facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own and 100% honest.

Condor Trek Kids is an interactive book that gets your children moving. Using a story about lost condor eggs, the children in the book have to return the condor eggs to their mother at the top of the mountain. As they go throughout the story the encounter challenges along the way. Every page has a challenge that gets your little ones to act out different kids yoga poses.

There are many benefits to kid's yoga for both the mind and the body. Yoga can help a child improve concentration and focus, increase mobility, circulation, oxygen intake and help with digestion.

This book is written by Bryan Duggan and based off of the first story in the kids yoga DVD Storyland Yoga. Condor Trek Kids was illustrated by Ann Bonniwell. The pages are colorful and bright, with a crayon colored look. 

I opened the book and explained how it works to Squirrel. On the first page the kids find Condor eggs. I showed him the yoga pose. He then got down and pretended to be an egg. What really surprised me was that his little brother then started trying to do the same thing as he was.

I really got a kick out of watching the boys go through this book. Squirrel enjoyed doing all the actions while Bug enjoyed copying his big brother.

Here is a preview of what you will find in Condor Trek Kids...

...and my children eagerly rolling on the ground like bear.

Here they are in another section of the book acting like trees.

As you can see, both of the boys having a great time with this book. Squirrel has been asking to read it every day! This book will be a great way to get the blood flowing, especially as winter approaches! 

I like that the book gets them moving. It's kind of like making the story 3-dimensional. Not only do they get to read it and look at it, but also move with it, becoming the characters in the book.

This is a book that I would definitely recommend to friends and family.  It would also make a great Christmas gift! 

They also have the Storyland Yoga DVD which I would love to check out! 

Connect with Playful Planet, the creators of Storyland Yoga, on Facebook and twitter.

Buy the book: You can purchase the Condor Trek Kids book on Amazon, list price is $11.95, but it is currently on sale for $10.76!

Do you practice yoga with your children? Do they have a favorite pose? 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Andy Pandy Diapers and Amazon Giveaway

Just Me and the Boys was not compensated in any way for this post.
Andy Pandy Premium Bamboo Disposable Diapers Are Inspired By Love For Our Children And Our Planet.


This giveaway is hosted by It's Peachy Keen and sponsored by Andy Pandy.
This great giveaway is also co-hosted by An Exercise in Frugality

Let me introduce you to Andy Pandy! If you don't already know who or what they are! They are the best bamboo disposable diaper ever. I now swear by them. My sons butt used to get so red from not even being in a diaper that long. I have not had one issue with the bamboo disposable diapers since getting them.

Ageless Derma Mineral Eye Shadow and Blush Review

Disclosure: I received the product pictured above to help facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and 100% honest. No other compensation was received.

The pressed mineral eye shadow from Ageless Derma is all natural. Some of the key ingredients include green tea extract, vitamins A and E, and Lavender Aromatherapy. The formula makes for a light weight, all day wear eye shadow. 

The color I received was Gold Leaf. This color is very unique and my new favorite. Photos do not do this color any justice. Picture an olive green mixed with gold. It is a beautiful color that I just don't feel like my camera could capture accurately.

In the photo above I used a light neutral color as a base. I then added Ageless Derma's Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow at the crease and slightly above. This shadow looks great with black or brown liner/mascara. In this picture I am wearing black.

The Pressed Mineral Blush is also light weight and lasts all day and contains similar active ingredients as the eye shadow. The blush color I received was Prim Rose. When I first applied the blush I didn't really notice the color. It wasn't until I left the house and was using a restroom at the grocery store that I saw just how nice this blush looks. Its reflective properties and great color highlighted my cheeks well.

The best part about Ageless Derma's Mineral Makeup line is that they contain minerals which help diminish fine lines around your eyes and cheeks as well as broad spectrum sun protection. Not only am I getting great color and all day wear out of my make up but it also servers a greater function in the health of my skin! 

You can shop Ageless Derma's website for the Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow and the Pressed Mineral Blush. While you're there check out their other great products.

I also reviewed their Satin Lip Gloss, which is a great moisturizer (check it out here)!
