Kiggster’s 1st Day of Preschool: Mama Jitters & A Bento Lunch

OMG, when did Kiggster get old enough to start Preschool?!  Technically, she's not really starting Preschool Preschool but it's close enough.  I decided when I started staying home with Kiggster last year that I would also try to homeschool her.  I have no idea where to start with that but I figured if she was anything like me in personality and learning style, she would probably not be a "go-to-school" kinda girl.  She seems to love learning just through everyday life, our daily activities with tid bits infused into it.  She doesn't learning her numbers through me drilling it into her but rather through us singing songs in the car, counting the steps as we walk up and down flights of stairs, etc.  Now she knows her numbers and colors in two languages and even some in ASL and that was all through us living life.  I want her to love learning and not dread it.  I used to be an avid reader...up until there became required reading and I no longer loved it and haven't really been able to … [Read more...]

Miessence Sunflower Body Wash Review

I actually was looking for a baby wash for Kiggster that wasn't filled with tons of chemicals or junk and that's how I got to trying Miessence's Sunflower Body Wash.  What I didn't expect was how much I'd love it for me too.  I knew it was something that was meant for the whole family and great for babies as a bath wash product but I am one that is sometimes stuck in her ways and since I already had a ton of body washes, I was just getting it was Kiggster in mind.  I was very wrong!   This bottle actually started out towards the edge of the bathtub because that's where I could reach it best while giving Kiggster a bath.  Well, let's just say, it quickly moved its way up top to where the showerhead is and where all the treasured bath products aka my bath products are kept!  At first I was using it as a bubble bath but I wasn't using very much product because I didn't want to "waste" it since the bottle … [Read more...]

Miessence: DeepGreen Alkalising Superfood Review

Am I the only one that seems to have trouble getting the family to eat enough vegetables?!  It seems no matter what we try Kiggster's first choice foods are noodles, rice, and popcorn and Honey's are chili mangoes and chai tea.  Sometimes we can get a couple bites of veggies in Kiggster and sometimes meat but it's unpredictable when she wants them.  So I needed to look for alternative methods to deliver those veggies in the least painful way possible!  That's when I discovered Miessence's Deep Green Alkalising Superfood. Keeping the correct pH balance in our bodies is vital for ongoing good health.  Failing to keep that balance can result in loss of minerals that results in reduced bone density associated with osteoporosis. A body which is too acidic has been linked to other conditions including athersclerosis, kidney and gallbladder stones and arthritis. Deep Green Alkalising is the solution. Made from the freeze dried juices … [Read more...]

Healthy Veggie-Loaded Savory Popcorn Recipe

So if you've been around this blog for awhile, you'll know that Kiggster looooves popcorn!  Actually, some would say she's obsessed with popcorn and can down a whole bag all by herself.  Because of that, I wanted to try to find a way to healthify her popcorn diet without her really discovering that I was doing it!  I've been making Kiggster popcorn with some plain bagged popcorn I bought for awhile now but I was only using butter, salt, paprika and tumeric.  I recently was introduced to Miessence's DeepGreen Superfood which is made with 100% vegan, raw, and certified organic ingredients.  One teaspoon of this freeze-dried powder is equivalent to 60ml of fresh green juices and that was perfect for our family.  So it dawned on me this week that I could totally use this powder to  make Kiggster some popcorn and so that's what I tried today!  Kiggster was all over the popcorn that I made with no hesitation about the DeepGreen … [Read more...]
