Bubble bath - miracle cleaner

So here's the deal, I have been trying to get the house clean, really clean, organize every last crany and even do some purging. This is so hard, I just never catch up! One room gets destroyed by the kids as I try to keep a step ahead.

The floor in the bathroom got done tonight, not on the list for tonight but when a little girl takes off her easy-up and steps in poo and walks around the bathroom you kinda get forced into an alternate schedule. I think I will now got back and do the toilet and tub, might as well get that room out of the way for the week.

I used to use Scrub Free or Scum Free (something like that)and other similar products to clean the tub but when I got pregos I couldn't stomach all the chemically stench and was afraid of the fumes so I switched to Avon bubble bath, (this is a must click just to see all the uses) and it is so awesome I will never go back to the stinky stuff.

The bonus is that it can be used to clean a load of other things, and it works really well! Now the thing for me is that if it works so well on cleaning all this stained stuff why would I want to use it to bathe----what the heck is in it, I am afraid it will melt off my skin or something!

Dave and I used to clean the lab I worked in for some extra cash on the side. Over a few years we tried tons of different cleaners and commercial products to get a streak free shine to the floors, turned out that Avon delivered with the bubble bath and we could choose the scent we liked (mmmm, peach was yummy). Anyway, for the tub I just love it and I don't worry about chemical residue for my babes baths, and nasty smells!

Ahh, I just inspired myself, so much for the rest of this post, it will have to wait, I am off to clean the bathroom!

Oh, Yea!

I had to post this pic here since Dave hates feet and it would gross him out if it were on the family site (he doesn't come here)
Anyway...I was so excited that I got the chance to do my nails, really do my nails, remove the old six layers and even add a little bling! I took time for me, so I just had to share(brag) it!!

So it's been a while...

I have been meaning to do a post here for a while but I have been trying to plug through a book as well and it has taken priority. The book is The Pampered Child Syndrome by Dr. Maggie Mamen. Yikes, makes me wonder if these kiddo's have a fighting chance. If you have a kid or are planning to have one, read this book! It is a must read! I will fill you in on all my discoveries once I have finished it. So far though I know we have a few things to work on around here so we don't have pampered demanding teenagers someday, pray for me, this parenting thing is so huge!!!!

Did you notice the new surroundings on this page? What do you think? It is aways a work in progress and there is also a new one in the works for the family site, someday when I get more time it will show up.

I need a massage!!!!

There has got to be a better way. The backpack is killing my back and shoulders. Maybe I will just double diaper the kids when I go out and spare myself some pain.

Shade your eyes!!

Ya, I know totally gross. But that is what my belly looked like after babe#2. After Kaitlyn my belly was totally fine so when stretch marks started to show with Ethan I was so sad. I used the Palmer's coco butter belly cream throughout the pregnancy and for the first 6 months after. It faded the stretch marks really well but my stomach was still as wrinkly as an elephant's butt. I went to the baby expo in April and there was an Arbonne booth. (click to view)
with a few before and after photos on display and I thought they were amazing and didn't really believe it but thought that it wouldn't hurt to try it, any improvement would be good. I have been really happy with the results and am going to keep using it and hope it keeps getting better. So to all you moms with droopy skin, this really has been working for me. It is bloody expensive but worth it and still way cheaper than a tummy tuck!!

My miracle cream.
