Comment: I was sent these books. Thank you BabyLit for collaborating with Parenting Healthy
You have been home a lot more lately. Are you tired of reading the same books over and over? Most of us have been in since March, distance learning with the kids may continue and we need new books. While stocking up on Back to School supplies for the older kids, get your infant and toddler some new books for baby also. BabyLit has new fall titles.
The Little Naturalists Jane Goodall Is A Friend To All is a favorite of mine. Young children will get their first look into Jane Goodall’s love for animals, especially for chimpanzees.
Fall is also when we start thinking about the Holidays and this new book, Christmas, a Count and Find Primer. The book is full of winter activities and popular Holiday objects.
A few BabyLit titles and their ISBN numbers are above so you can begin to reimagine your home library with new books for baby. Visit Amazon to find Christmas and Jane Goodall along with these other titles.
Comment: I was sent a print for this feature. Thank you to Name Stories for collaborating with Parenting Healthy
Last week we tore up our tweens game room and to reorganize that room it meant using his bedroom for extra storage. We are distance learning to start the school year in most of Wa. state so we needed to create him a home learning space. He is 12 and heading into the 7th grade so we did our final sweep of toys and little boy ‘stuff’ – he wants sports and gaming. I would love to hold onto the memories and toys and prints that meant so much to him at different times in his life, now he says, “Mom. Just toss it”.
Aside from basketballs and gaming themes I hung my piece of special, his Name Stories personalized name print so that he remembers exactly who he is and meant to be by his name. Anthony – it means Son of Hercules, strong, independent, wise. A strong Italian name connecting him to his genealogy and defining his spirit. This is a keeper and will stay with him on a wall forever.
These name prints are available at Name Stories and I was even able to personalize it by adding the top line, Our Amazing Son…Anthony. I chose the white on red as red is his favorite color. His personalized name print came wrapped well and undamaged, ready for a frame.
Whether for baby’s room or to add something special to your teen’s space, this personalized name print will remind them of the meaning of their name. When we are rearranging the home and our lives around distance learning or perhaps you will switch to homeschooling to keep social distancing, this can be a special personalized name print to hang in this space.
At a time of new normals and a huge shift in schooling or even for the teen heading to College on top of a virus which adds worry, perhaps this gentle reminder to ground them in the meaning of their name and who they stand for is needed more than ever. Name Stories has your child’s name and meaning ready to print and send. Customize your child’s personalized name print today at NameStories.com
Comment: I was sent Polly cloths. Thank you to Polly Cloth for collaborating with Parenting Healthy
2020 became the year of clean and sanitize real quick! I can tell you I was NOT one of the shoppers racing to the store for chemical cleaners and wipes. That is because I am aware of brands that clean just as effectively without the chemicals and those ingredients can actually cause upper respiratory illnesses and isn’t that what we are trying to avoid? In my home I use my Polly cloth and I can pair this with a safe cleaner or use with water.
There are so many benefits to using the Polly cloth as opposed to single-use products that are not good for our environment. Take a look at what the Polly cloth does for you and your home:
Over 300 miles of fiber in each cloth, giving more surface area to each clean
Higher split-rate than Norwex or E-cloth, so it picks up bacteria better
No harmful chemicals needed
All-purpose: gentle enough for leather, stainless steel, etc. but still effective
Absorbs 8x its weight
Can be reused 1000+ times
Reduces disposable and chemical waste
You can do the math and see that buying a few Polly cloths is cheaper than stocking up on disposable cleaning products. I keep my grey color cloths for glass and stainless steel and my blue for furniture and counters when doing a deep clean. You can use them how you wish and then you just add to your washing machine and dryer like normal. You may wash with bleach. This makes them reusable for quite a while.
Polly uses patented technology that Hospitals across the US use to clean. The Polly cloth is unrivaled in performance and durability. What makes it work better is that each minuscule fiber removes microscopic dirt & bacteria — which your standard cleaning supplies or Microfiber often swipe right past.
