There's a Fine Line

Snooping to snoop is an invasion of privacy, at least it is to me. Snooping for safety reasons is completely different. But there is a fine line.

Yesterday I put up a post from a guest writer about children and cyberbullying. This post is in no way meant to impugn her writing or ideas, it was just a post that got me far is too far?

As a parent, I afford my children a lot of privacy. I don't snoop through their notes (well, with the older two I didn't, these days I'm not sure kids write notes anymore, they text instead). I don't read through their texts. And though there are parental controls on the computer they use, I don't go through the history to see what has been accessed. Their computer is in a central location of the house, I see 99% of what they're doing on it anyway.

That being said, IF there were a problem, such as cyberbullying, like the post yesterday was about, I would not have a problem taking a look at what was going on to help assess the seriousness of the problem. In fact, if there were any problem (that warranted parental guidance), it would be instinct to step right in, and I would have no qualms about it. I've done that before too.

But I do everything on the up and up. If I were to give them a cell phone with a tracking device installed, or put into place, I would tell them it was in there, and explain to them why. In fact, the tracking device seems like a great idea to me for safety reasons.

If that program also recorded every single thing they did on their portable device, I would let them know up front that it was in there too. Why? Because every single transaction that takes place between me and my children is important to me. When they grow up and look back, I want them to know they were respected and valued at all times, even when there were moments that were challenging.

I have two grown boys, and am no stranger to having to step in on an issue and put a stop to it. One of my boys went through a period where he thought drinking underage might be fun to try. His friend slipped him a bottle of Jack Daniels to hide in the house, I found it and dumped it, giving him the empty bottle and letting him know it wasn't acceptable and why. To me, hunting for that bottle was not snooping, my instincts told me there was something to be found, and the mom in me was doing it for the right reasons. I use that example to show I have absolutely gone through my older children's things at one point, but not in a way that was surprising, or just for snooping.

The issue of going through your child's things is controversial. Some people adamantly declare that it's their child and they'll do whatever they want.

Others are less invasive and have declared boundaries.

Some parents are not invasive enough (too complacent) with checking into things if they need to.

For me it boils down to knowing my child, and hearing the clues when something needs a little extra attention. Some say I am too lax, but I don't think so. If it feels right, that's what is important to me.

DressFirst is THE place to go when you need a dress!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated, however, are genuine and my own.

Shopping for a special dress is FUN! And it's well, special.

At the end of the last school year, I wrote a post about my daughter attending her junior prom. Part of that fun was selecting what she would wear! Coming across the perfect dress, however, does not come easily. There were many options viewed before she selected the one that she loved.

That is where DressFirst steps in to help. is the leading supplier of formal gowns for many events and occasions.

They have prom dresses to fit any style. From the short, flirty look my daughter likes, that can be seen above...

To the longer, more elegant, but still beautiful style I prefer. Looking at the two makes me laugh because in truth, my daughter's and my own taste are really not all that far apart.

DressFirst also has everything you would like or need for a wedding.

There are the actual wedding gowns themselves, of which you will find an extensive collection to choose from, and with so many styles you are bound to find something you love.

And there are the wedding party dresses, such as the bridesmaids dresses, one of my favorites of which is pictured above.

DressFirst also offers a more refined look, like those that come with the Mother of the Bride selections.

They even have dresses for special nights out. I was thinking the dress above would be perfect for a night out with my husband to the opera, preferably in Sydney (but I will save that dream for another post) ;) ).

The dresses I have showcased here are but a small selection (really!) of the vast selection DressFirst has available. The prices are not unaffordable, and every purchase comes with a 7-day defect guarantee, which means if you have a flaw on your dress you can return it for another dress within the 7-day timeframe.

How Parents Can Overcome Cyberbullying

Help me welcome Linda, the guest author for today's post. She's got a great message to share!

It is the significant part of parents’ responsibilities to ensure that their kids are aware of the possible risks of using mobile devices prior to receiving their mobile devices. There is a definite need to sit down and discuss issues like cyberbullying and sexting with your child, especially teenagers. This will enable them to make smart decisions if faced with such problems. If your kid is too young to comprehend fully what you are trying to explain, you need to look for a more effective and realistic solution to direct their use of the mobile device.

There has been a lot of heat lately regarding cyberbullying with the consequence ranging from mild to being as harsh as young adults committing suicide. Everyone from government institutions to schools is at a debate on what to do, how to tell if it is going on and how both stop and prevent cyberbullying cases.

However, you as a parent have to decide and take action to ensure that your kids will not be a victim. You can use various mobile tools to protect your children. Still, with all the applications available online promising all sorts of ways to detect harmful activities it is a bit hard to decide which one to use. Be an educated user prior to making a decision and take a look at these considerations.

Complete access to your child’s mobile device can be given to you by cell phone monitoring app mSpy. There is a dashboard for your use where you can view and block any contact or website in your kid’s phone. If the smartphone of your child has an unlimited data plan, the app’s ability to check the history of web browsing that your kids do will be very useful. There is also the added bonus of using cell phone towers or GPS technology, so you can track your child’s actual location.

Text messages as well as pictures and videos can easily be sent and received on mobile devices. It is important for you to know if the content is safe and appropriate for your child’s use. All communication logs are being tracked by mSpy and you can view text messages in full detail as well as photos or videos sent, received and stored anytime you want. You can also use mobile tracking app to lock your kid’s cell phone remotely.

It is very easy to install and use mSpy despite the variety of functions it has. Then you get access to all incoming and outgoing calls, text messages sent, received and deleted, GPS tracking, contact information added, email threads and logs, history of browsing websites, photo and video logs, and calendar events. The control panel gives you real time access to your child’s phone screen. There may not be much room for privacy but the app will keep your kids safe.

As a responsible parent, you always try your best to explain and teach your kids to follow safety precautions but there will be instances when you need to take control. Such is the case when it goes to the use of mobile devices and the information being exchanged online.

Leaves Aplenty!

The weather has been so cold, and we've all had a touch of something or other for the last week or so, that I didn't want to get out in the yard and rake those leaves that had to be done. This weekend though, we had fantastic weather. Just look at that gorgeous sunshine in the pictures! That weather provded the perfect opportunity to do yard work, and a lot of it.  It turned out just me and little man were free to do it, and do it we did. My son worked his little tush off!

He got his wheelbarrow out of the garage and got right to busy with his mama.

He raked quite a bit, and this picture is not just for show, that boy was busy! He sings (loudly) when he's happy (I love that), and one of the neighbors came over to comment on it when little man went in the house for a water break.  Turns out, I'm not the only one who thinks his singing is awesome. ;)

I let him use the smaller blower, turned on low, for the first time ever, and he thought that was cream of the crop as far as yard work goes.

Well, except for the free rides down the hill to the burn pile. Nothing beats those. ;)

It literally took all day, but it was satisfying and fun (and tiring too).  There are still some leaves up there, but I'm thinking we'll just have one more go for the front yard and then we'll be done with it for the season  (at least for the front of the house).

Anyone else busy with Fall leaves right now?

Reducing the Cost of Boat Maintenance (it can be done!)

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.

There are a lot of jokes about how much it costs to maintain a boat. The acronym "bust out another thousand" is thrown around in good cheer among boat owners on a regular basis. However, while most can accept that boats are not cheap, it doesn't change the fact that they require a lot of upkeep that should, if possible, be reduced in cost. The expenses associated with a boat don't need to be an immutable fact, and can be adjusted with some smart shopping.

The answer is to look online for your replacement boat parts and upgrades. Previously, the only place to find boat parts was in specialty marine stores. These are often few and far between unless you happen to live on a lake or near the ocean, and they're always quite pricey. Looking online, however, will give you access to a broader selection, as well as discounts.

You can shop discount marine parts at, for instance. As an online retailer, they're positioned to provide savings that simply aren't available in a street-accessible shop. While you have to pay for the associated shipping costs, finding marine parts online will give you access to exactly what you need, and let you get a clear picture of what's available, allowing you to save money by getting precisely the correct item.

Boats are not the most inexpensive hobby. However, with proper shopping strategies and a visit to the right sources on the web, you can greatly reduce the associated costs.

Fairytale Brownies (Review & Giveaway)

Disclosure: We received a product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

I have heard of Fairytale Brownies many times, and even considered ordering them as a gift for my mom once, but  I never got around to it. Now I have and all I can say is, Shame on Me! for not trying these sooner! These Belgian Gourmet Chocolate beauties are so decadent and rich, and I don't use those words together very often.

We received the Fall Bar & Brownie Combo that is (6) large brownies and (6) smaller-sized bars. The kids and I shared an Original Brownie, and this morning I had a Lemon Blondie Bar (all to myself because all kids are in school, hehehe). The brownie was delicious, it was thick, soft, and rich.  The Lemon Blondie Bar was out of this world yummy. I don't know if I enjoyed it so much because I don't usually have something so rich for breakfast (yep, I had mine with a hot cup of Java for my breakfast today), or what, but it was g.o.o.d.-GOOD!  Hubby wanted one in his lunch today and said his (walnut brownie) was good too. In fact, he said any time I want to slip one in his lunch, that's fine by him. ;)

Fall Brownie & Bar Combo

You can personalize your package with a photo too, if you want and I thought that was such a good idea for making something special even nicer! The Fairytale Brownies website is chock full of great treats and combinations, and everything is packaged so nicely that if you are looking for a gift or to treat someone special, you don't even have to consider purchasing gift wrap.  The delights are individually packaged to stay fresh longer.  I recommend the website. If you like sweet treats, you're going to love Fairytale Brownies.

You can learn more about them on their website.
You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Pinterest.

One lucky reader gets to take home a Fall Brownie Bar & Combo package like we received.

Letting Go: It's His House Too!

Scenario #1
Countertops... and flat surfaces (like the bathroom sink, the top of the refrigerator, etc.): I like them clear.  Hubby thinks if there's a space open it should be filled, hence the bathroom sink in our master bath is covered with stuff (mouthwash, deodorant, aftershave, shaving cream, etc.). I have to move all of that stuff several times a week to clean it, and therein lies the difference, I think, hubby doesn't have to clean it, so it doesn't bother him.

Plus, I like things to look clean. When the counter tops and other surfaces are covered with stuff it looks cluttered. I don't like it.

Scenario #2
My desk...I like it in a space, my space, and I want it clean.  Hubby's spread out all over the dining room table doing homework everyday and a). it's cluttered and looks terrible  b). It renders the table useless for meals and me and the kids have to eat in the kitchen c). everyone has to 'shush' while he's in that room working, or go to a different part of the house.

I bought him a desk for his birthday last month. That way he could be in a nice corner, neat and organized in the room and we could still use the room and the table too.  He took the desk back to the store and got something he really wanted. He's still at the table.

Letting Go...

Lanaya over at Raising Reagan has a 'Letting Go' series going on, and it's a good reminder that getting worked up over small things is just plain silly.  The two things above fall into that category for me.

How I Resolved These Things

Scenario #1
Of course it seems obvious, but when you have such big differences, and one is you like things clean and the other person thinks you should utilize all space (in my eye that's cluttered), these things can be abrasive. It's not a new issue, it's been going on for years. I hate it cluttered, he thinks my idea of clean means, "Where the heck is my stuff now???" (because it's in its place and not right at his fingertips).  He's not going to change (and should he even have to?), I've got to just let it go.

It is his house too.  That means I don't get my way all of the time.
What gives me the right anyway to think everything should be my way? He certainly doesn't get that luxury. None of us do.

Scenario #2
Give up the ghost. He's not moving, he likes to work there, and it's where he's most productive. I'm not doing my part as a supportive wife trying to move him to a desk where he doesn't think he'd be as happy. Worst case scenario, which is probably how it will play out, I lose the use of the room and table for dinners for a couple of years. The trade off is he's happy (very important), feels like he's improving something in his life, and he's upstairs instead of in the mancave where he used to be (which I didn't complain about, but didn't like when it was excessive either).  AND we do have the perfectly fine table in the kitchen where we've been eating. It's smaller ...a nice little round table, so dinner with the kids is cozier, more fun, and far more personal than the big open table in the dining room.  It's a fair trade off, in fact, hubby could be doing me a big favor! Now that I'm typing it out I realize how much I like that new kind of time at dinner.

I'm letting go, and in the long run, that's sometimes better for everyone (in these two incidences, it's definitely better for me). :)

If you're 'letting go' of something too, and want to link up at Lanaya's, you can find her post here:

We've got lots going on today, but I'll swing by and visit back later tonight or tomorrow. Have a great weekend everyone!

Kindness Kingdom (a great gift idea!!)

Disclosure: I did not receive any form of compensation for this post.

Here is an excerpt (courtesy of Marvelously Well Mannered) from one of Marvelously Well Mannered's Kindness Kingdom board game cards, and it couldn't be better timing on this particular one, considering commercials aplenty are running full speed ahead right now.

If you see something you really want for Christmas on TV, can you tell your mom and dad to get it for you?

A. No, you cannot tell someone to buy you something but you can give a hint of things you like.
B. Yes, scream for your parents the next time the commercial comes on so you can show them what you want. They would appreciate the help.
C. No, never tell someone to get your something and don’t help them with hints – if your parents really love you they will know what you want.

Answer: A. You should never demand that your parents – or anyone else – buy you a specific gift.  But a gentle hint is usually appreciated.
Casually mention the item in conversation. “I can’t believe the cool new Lego building set I saw.”  Giving just the perfect gift is hard, even for people who know you. Make sure you are grateful for whatever you receive and say, thank you.

Marvelously Well Mannered is a company who believes, like I do, that good manners begin at home. The importance of teaching our children how to behave politely, use good manners, and exhibit good taste while in public cannot be overrated. Here is some good news: An easy way to reinforce the good manners we are already, or wish to be teaching our children can now be done in a very fun way!

Kindness Kingdom is a board game that was created with good manners in mind. It is for 2-4 players, ages 5 and older. Players travel around to each of the eight neighborhoods in Kindness Kingdom hoping to collect charms for the bracelet the winner will use to gain entrance into the tea party.  There are different piles of cards, each drawn by a player in different situations, and they all deal with manners, in one way or another. From teaching proper terminology, discussing the faux pas, and everything in between, Kindness Kingdom offers positive learning for its players from beginning to end. There are many cards available, so the game will remain fun/fresh and continue to be a learning experience each time it is played. There are other cool surprises along the way as well, and a healthy dose of humor is peppered throughout.

It is a fun game, and a don't-miss opportunity for teaching young children important issues such as empathy, kindness, social skills, and proper etiquette. The end of the game, keeping in proper alignment with the theme, encourages the 'winner' to cheer the other players along until they too reach the gates of the tea party, because of course a tea party is never as fun when it's only for one.

You can learn more about the company and the game on their website.  You can also follow them on Facebook, where you will find other tips, niceties, definitions, and the like updated on a regular basis.

Our pillow testers for the moment.
We'll be taking over pillow duty tonight (than you very much ;) ).

We haven't slept on these yet because everyone in the house wants them...but since no one needs them (which would pull rank), so we are going to do what any slightly-off normal family would do, we're having a lottery draw (numbers in a hat).  I'll wash them today and tonight after dinner we'll draw for the pillows. For now, however, I have it on good authority that they are as comfy as can be. ;)

You can learn more about Smartsilk by visiting their website here:
You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

UPDATE ON THE PILLOWS:  Well, I was the winner of the pillow name draw in our  house, and I've been sleeping on these for a few nights...I came back to say I love them! Really, I love them. They're very soft and comfortable. You don't know what you're missing in a pillow until you've slept on what that's a nice quality like these, and I would recommend them as presents too!! I'm pretty sure your recipients would end up very happy with them. :)

Thanks to SmartSilk, one lucky winner (US/Can) will get a pair of standard sized pillows to call their own.

While you're on their website, be sure to check out the new Paws n Silk items too (your pets will thank you). You'll find such things as coats, raincoats, day beds and travel beds the one pictured below. You can also follow Paws n Silk on Facebook and/or Twitter.
