I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for Pernix Therapeutics. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

A little bit ago I wrote a post with the startling facts about insomnia in our society. We have a sleeping problem in our country and the American sleeping stats are staggering to see. Nearly 4 million Americans suffer from insomnia and the worst part is that most don’t even get any help for it. A mere 12% of Americans suffering from insomnia have been diagnosed by a doctor. Almost 72% Americans are missing out on almost three weeks of sleep every year, that’s a lot of time and a lot of valuable sleep lost.

I received two concert tickets to facilitate my review, as always all opinions expressed are my own.

As my kids get older I try to incorporate and emphasize the importance of good deeds and helping others. I tell them that it doesn’t have to be complicated or even helping someone you don’t already know. Doing a simple act for a friend or family member can bring incredible joy to their lives. My six year old recently made a DIY ice cream kit for one of her friends and left it on their porch. I know it put a smile on the whole family’s faces and probably made their day.

I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for Pernix Therapeutics. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

As a mom of two my biggest strength to get the most out of my days and be the best mom I can be is sleep. Proper sleep can make the difference between a productive day and a terrible out of sync one. Without the proper sleep I have a hard time functioning as a normal human being and it’s nearly impossible to be on top of things as a mom. It’s also vital for my immune system and memory. Less sleep and I find it very hard to recall different things during my day.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carson-Dellosa. I reviewed the free content on their website to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

With summer in full swing, I am already hearing the classic “Mom I’m bored!” between that and my concern of them forgetting all they have learned throughout the year - I knew I had to start incorporating some fun learning activities into our summer. Learning loss just means all that time spent practicing was a waste for both your child and their teacher.

I participated on this campaign on behalf of Mom It Forward for Build-A-Bear. I have been compensated for this review, but like always all my crazy ideas and wording is mine and I only review products I really love! 

Every little girl is so excited when their talents and strengths start shining through. Nothing brings so much self-confidence as discovering something that you are truly gifted at. It doesn’t matter what that talent is, and for little girls it can be anything from doing great cartwheels, playing an instrumentto being a great friend. My daughter recently started playing the guitar and it is now something that brings her so much joy. She now wants to start her own little band with her friends. Girls who learn when they are youngto be fearless, strong, and happy with the talents they have been given eventually grow up to be amazing confident women. I know that’s what I want for my own daughter and I am always on the lookout for anything that will reinforce those positive traits.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
