A great Parenting book ! Motivate Your Child Action Plan ... A great guide for my kids #heartparenting #sponsored

Disclosure: I received this book for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
Parenting is hard !!
Seriously ... I thought that my kids has some terrible 2's , HA !! This pre-teen adolescent nonsense is really trying my patience .. Was I this way with my Mom ?
I jumped at the chance to review this book. The Motivate Your Child Action Plan offers parenting advise, solutions, tips, and references Biblical scriptures as well as real life scenarios.
I get this one a lot.. "Why are you so hard on me? Why can't I just have an iPhone like my friend?"
Really? Because you're 12 maybe? I don't consider this suffering. I think more like "Wait until your Father gets home" as suffering.. At least, that's what worked for me.
I think sometimes my kids find that hard work = suffering. Maybe they feel that way when I ask them to volunteer when they don't want to. I want them to know, there is a world outside of their peripheral vision . I want them to try, fail, and try again.

Apple MFi Certified iPhone 6 Battery Case Review #ChromoMFi #ad

If you are like me, somehow, your phone has replaced you camera for everyday photos.
We are a society of "Instant & Share" these days.
I am no exception !
I had the opportunity to review a product, but I didn't have the phone compatibility. But you know, my Bestie had just purchased a new iPhone 6 and she was happy to help me out.
So I received this rechargeable battery case and we met up at our favorite bagel store to take a peek at it. We liked how the design of the case had a bumper type design plus a hard-shell backplate that could provide a comprehensive shield from scratches, bumps, drops, and more, while still convenient enough to fit easily in your hand or into your pocket.
She has 2 girls. They like to play with her phone.

Forever Fused Infusion Water Bottle Review #LiveInfinitely #ad

Did You Know That According to Boston College Dieticians Over 66% of Americans Don't Drink Enough Water Daily?
That would be me !
I honestly don't like plain water or even ice water. I was not given it to drink at dinner ( we drank milk). The only times I can remember drinking water, was fro the garden hose when I was outside playing and needed a drink. Yes, I am that old that we drank from a garden hose!
But in the past decades, drinking water has grown on me. Especially during my Infertility years where I had to do shots in my tummy and legs. It was imperative I drink water.
When I began running 2 years ago, water was even more my friend. I find that I cannot run without my handy carry bottle, and if I do, I feel more parched than usual.
At home, it's still difficult for me to pour a glass of that clear, tasteless healthy stuff.
I found a way to make it easier.
I began adding lemon to my water. I love lemons and it makes drink water, at home, so much easier.
The easy removable tube is perfect for my lemon wedges. I get the taste, and some pulp, and don't have to fight the rinds when I take a drink.

When I received this product, I also received a sweet drawstring back pack.
I've used it to keep a towel, fruits, and snacks when I bike ride or go to the park.

Besides being plain like me, you can create a multitude of combinations from  other fruits, veggies, and teas.  Some of these include:
* Green tea+Mint+Lime: Fat burning, digestion, relieves headaches, congestion and freshens breath.
* Strawberry+Kiwi: Immune system protection, blood sugar regulation, cardiovascular health and digestion
* Cucumber+Lime+Lemon: Water weight management, appetite control, relieves bloating, hydration, and digestion
* Lemon+Lime+Orange: Digestion, immune defense, vitamin C, relieves heartburn, (when consumed at room temperature)
The fruit infused water bottle is made of high quality Eastman Tritan Copolyester, which is eco-friendly, BPA free, dishwasher safe and leak proof.
I've been using it for a couple of months now and it hasn't cracked, leaked, or even held the flavor of the lemons I so consistently use.
You can check out this product, Sold on Amazon. I think it's a great deal !
