How Stomach Flu Changed My Life - A Brightside To Everything

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

It all started with a weird feeling… did I eat too much for dinner? Did I eat something bad? Oh… this doesn’t feel good, I need to lie down, never mind I need to get up! Porcelain GOD here I come, and here comes the stomach flu! One by one my family members are dropping like flies; everyone is being hit, but wait--two days later they are coming back from the dead yet here I lie on my deathbed and it’s been almost a week! When will the torture end? When will I have the strength to move again? And when will my caffeine withdrawal headache cease?

Little Pim Holiday e-book Kickstarter Campaign!

Friday, October 18, 2013

There are many benefits to learning a foreign language. For me the two biggest benefits are that first, learning a foreign language helps organize the brain in the same way that learning math does. Secondly, knowing more than one language helps open doors to communicate with more people. As much as I want these benefits for myself, I want them even more for my children. 

This is why I love Little Pim so much!  If you haven’t heard about Little Pim yet, you are in for a treat! They are a company that introduces little children between the ages of 0 and 5 to foreign languages in fun engaging ways using DVDs, music CDs, flashcards, and books. They are just awesome!

With the Holiday season just around the corner, Little Pim has started a Kickstarter campaign. They are trying to raise the funds to create a special Holiday e-book! In this e-book the adorable Panda, Little Pim will embark on an adventure around the world. As he travels to Mexico, France, China, and Brazil he will learn new languages, sample yummy foods, and join in cultural holiday traditions! Doesn't that sound exciting! I know that my kids will LOVE having my husband and I read it to them.

Here's the thing. I don't know how  familiar you are with how Kickstarter works, but Little Pim only gets to keep the money if they reach their full goal in the stated time. This is why they need our help.

Every donation counts. Even if it's only a dollar. That's why Little Pim is offering a special thank you reward. These rewards range from your name in the Thank You section of the book ($1), to your own e-book ($10), a panda plush ($25), Little Pim product ($100), your child's photo featured in the back of the book ($300), and your child being drawn into the book as a character ($1,000)!

In addition to donating, you can help spread the word like I am so more people can get involved and make this happen! If we all give, even a little I know we can make this happen. Here is the url for those who want to share it with friends:

*HOT* Hooked on Phonics: Teacher's Choice Reading Program for Pre-K to 2nd + Free Shipping for Only $139!

I know that when most people hear about Hooked on Phonics they think of the original commercial over a decade ago with the little kid that says, "Hooked on Phonics worked for me!" Well I'll let you in on a little secret. Hooked on Phonics did work for me. When I was in the 3rd grade I really struggled with reading. By the time summer break started I was 2 years behind in reading. I hated it. I found out my mom had gotten this for my older brother (who couldn't care less) so I borrowed it, and every day I would quietly go into my room and use it. By the time school started again I was over 2 years ahead in my reading ability. This is a fun easy to use program that REALLY WORKS!

Right now at Plum District as one of their everywhere deals you can get the Hooked on Phonics: Teacher's Choice Reading Program for Pre-K to 2nd + FREE shipping for ONLY $139. Trust me that is a killer deal!

I don't even know where to start on this deal, because these are so incredible!!

We have this whole series and I have never seen my kids learn so fast from something!

My little boy is 18 months and he sings his abc's counts to 10 and recognizes most letters, numbers an colors!

And my little girl who is 3 recognizes all basic sight words.

The best part is that these videos are completely educational but still interesting to kids.

We have gone through a lot of different educational videos, my little girl just won't hold still long enough for me to go over stuff for very long with her.

So when I saw that she loved these and she was learning so fast, I knew these were amazing!

Also I love that the songs don't drive me crazy! I can sit down with her and I love watching them too!

And today Amazon has a great deal on them! Grab Preschool Prep & Sight Words 7 DVD Pack Only $55.49!

This comes with FREE shipping!! I know it might seem like a lot to spend on DVD's but these are well worth it!!

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!
