Kandoo's Bubble Bath {A Bubbly Review}

Kandoo Bubbles BathHow do you get the kids to take a bath?  That is the sticky smelly question.  As the parent to four children that are all over the age spectrum I have tried many WAYS to get them in the tub. 

MANY WAYS.

I still have this argument with the girls every single week.  {shaking my head}  It only gets worse when I have to wash their hair. 

One of the sure ways to get them in the tub is to offer a sudsy bubble bath after messy dirty playing outside in mud puddles.  Well, okay, it works 90 % of the time.  The other 10% makes you just want to hose them off with the garden hose so they will stop whining about having to take a bath.

Kandoo now has bubble bath for our kids!  YAY!  More about Simply Suds.

Getting dirty is a childhood right; for parents it is their job to clean up the aftermath. From cute hooded towels, to rubber duckies parents spend a lot of time trying to encourage their kids to bathe. There seems to be two sides to the spectrum, little ones who love bath time and are part fish or, a child that has to be pleaded with to bathe. Either way Kandoo has created Simply Suds, bubbles that make bath time more fun for either end of the spectrum.

rove’s Bento Lunch Box {A Review}
The Superkids LOVE their rove Bento Box.

The Adventures of Supermom®Does it make me a bad parent when I admit that I DETEST packing lunch for my girls??  The school they attend does not provide lunches so theirs has to be packed.  {It's a small private Montessori School.}  I've been packing lunches for almost five years now and it's a struggle with finding the right containers?, the right bags?, the right food?, and a way to keep it from getting boring.

It's very difficult IMHO to do this every day.

During this time I've tried all sorts of containers trying to find the right size and one that wouldn't leak.  I have washed their lunchbox several times due to a container leaking.  I have even resorted to using plastic bags for food and that makes me feel all guilty for the environment.

Yes it was easier for me at a time but was that worth the plastic baggie guilt?

{no laughing}

I did just say plastic baggie guilt.

The last time I bought some bento type containers at the organic grocery store I was very disappointed because the lids didn't fit properly and they leaked and when you did get the lid on it was terribly hard to get the lid off and I kept picturing one of the girls throwing food all over the place while just trying to take the lid off.  So I quit using them.

Such a waste.

Then I was sent an email about reviewing the 7 piece laptop iced Bento Lunch Box by rove® and I jumped at the chance.  I even asked for TWO!
