Bedwetting…it’s something that our family has personally experienced throughout the past year.  Connor sleeps so heavily he often doesn’t even realize he needs to get up and use the bathroom.  It’s hardest at school during nap time because it happens in front of all his friends.  I usually pick up his clothing in a plastic bag at LEAST a few times a week & always pack extra outfits because I know he’s going through this phase right now.

I try to not make it a big issue and just encourage him to keep trying.  It’s not only frustrating to me (extra laundry and I feel like I’M doing something wrong), but it’s hard for him because he doesn’t understand why he can’t control when it happens.

Connor has been wearing GoodNites* TRU-FIT* for the last week and so far we really like them!   GoodNites® brand is introducing a completely new kind of bedtime protection: GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear. GoodNites* TRU-FIT* is machine-washable, real underwear with disposable, absorbent inserts that help keep sheets and PJs dry all night.

I know that wearing something similar to regular underwear makes Connor feel like a “big boy”.   In a study 87% of Moms that tried the product said that TRU-FIT* will make their kids more confident.

GoodNites* TRU-FIT* is available for boys and girls in sizes S/M and L/XL with colors and patterns for each size.  GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear is accompanied by a disposable, absorbent insert – designed to protect sheets and PJs all night long.

The disposable, absorbent insert should be discarded after each night’s use.  The underwear is machine washable so you can wear over and over again!

GoodNites®/Bedwetting Facts

According to a GoodNites® brand study, it’s estimated that 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 in the United States suffer from nocturnal enuresis, more commonly known as bedwetting

Research from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that psychologically, children who wet the bed do not want to participate in fun activities, such as sleepovers, because of their fear and embarrassment

Bedwetting is a fairly common condition that a child cannot control or be trained out of

43% of parents incorrectly believe that bedwetting can be “trained” out of a child

41% of parents of bedwetters describe it as frustrating

51% seek a better overall bedwetting product

More than one-quarter express anxiety about their child spending the night somewhere and wetting the bed

Friday Favorites

I’m linking up today with two of my favorite Friday link-ups Leslie & Laurenmindykaling

1.  I won a signed copy of Mindy Kaling’s book “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?”  Let me just profess my love for Mindy.  She reminds me so much of the every day girl and I just love her attitude about life and her size and not fitting the mold of perfection that Hollywood is known for.  She’s an amazing writer and actress and I can’t wait for season 2 of “The Mindy Project”.  If you are looking for a good laugh watch that show!  Mindy is so relatable and I’m so excited for her career and the way it’s taking off after The Office.

2.  Kendra Scott was having a sale over Labor Day weekend and I visited when my sister was in town.  I absolutely LOVE This ring!  I got it on major sale and have literally worn it every day since because it goes with everything.

3.  It’s 70-something degrees today.  Can I get an Amen???  This is Texas after all.  Enter my insertion of fall everything smell in my car.  This Absolutely Autumn by Yankee is not overkill and smells amazeballs!

4. I posted on Instagram last week how I was looking for an under eye concealor. My friend Claire came to my rescue.  She recommended Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer.  Works like a charm.  It’s got a bit of a pink undertone and works really well!  She also recommended Jordana Best Lash Mascara.  You can only find it at Walgreens, but for $3 I was surprised how well I liked it!

5.  I ordered the CUTEST labels the other day.  I’ve been using them on my stuff and all the things in Connor’s backpack: school supplies, folders, toys.  These are from Kidecals and you can go and create any sort of label you can dream up!  They are waterproof, thick, and very versatile.  These labels come in sheets with all different sizes too!

Happy weekend Lovelies!!!  Enjoy your family and friends!

When push comes to shove my family is #1.  I know it may not always show, but it’s true.  I couldn’t imagine life without them.  Of course God is the center of our lives.  We always try to be mindful of the things we do and the decisions we make with a God-centered attitude.  And coffee…well, not all coffee is created equal.  I can definitely tell that when you take away all the sugar and syrup and try a plain old shot of espresso…you can definitely tell the difference!

2. I am most relaxed when
My life is in order.  My house is clean.  I have a blank slate and nothing to do but relax and just chill out and de-stress.  Also, a massage doesn’t hurt ;-)

3. There’s no place like
My Nannie and Papa’s house.  The farm is the one place in my life that has always been consistent.  It’s where my Mom grew up.  We moved around a lot because my Dad was in the Army, but we always knew when we were at the farm we were HOME.


Invite your blogging friends and come back next Wednesday for another round of Finish This where we’ll answer another set of prompts!

Fall TV Lineup

I’m so excited for all the new fall TV shows coming out!  During the summer there are a few things on…but you know how it goes.  They always leave you hanging until the premiers in the fall.

Here are two new shows I’m looking forward to this fall:

blackish1

Black-ish (Reminds me of a modern day Cosby show)

Premieres Wednesday, September 24th 8:30pm on ABC

Andre ‘Dr’ Johnson (Anthony Anderson) has a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), four kids and a colonial home in the ‘burbs.  But has success brought too much assimilation for this black family? With a little help from his dad (Laurence Fishburne), Dre sets out to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family that honors their past while embracing the future. 

black-ish stars Anthony Anderson as Dre, Tracee Ellis Ross as Rainbow, Yara Shahidi as Zoey, Marcus Scribner as Andre Jr., Miles Brown as Jack, Marsai Martin as Diane and Laurence Fishburne as Pops.

cristela Premiere

Cristela

Premieres Friday, October 10th 7:30pm on ABC

In her sixth year of law school, Cristela (Cristela Alonzo) is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate. She’s stuck straddling the old culture she’s trying to modernize at home with her working-class family and the modern world she’s trying to embrace in her professional career. Breakout comedian Cristela Alonzo stars in this hilarious comedy about laughing your way down the path of the new American dream.

Cristela stars Cristela Alonzo as Cristela, Carlos Ponce as Felix, Terri Hoyos as Natalia, Andrew Leeds as Josh, and Sam McMurray as Trent.

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO WATCHING THIS FALL???

 

 


There’s Just Something About Fall…

There’s just something about fall that renews my soul.  The crisp air and the feeling of renewal.  Knowing the holiday season is just around the corner.  People just seem to be nicer during that time of year.

Yes, it’s busy.  School is back in swing & everyone is getting back on their own schedules.  I’m starting to pull out my scarves and boots again anticipating the day it drops below 80 degrees outside.  I love the colors of orange and red all around me.

I imagine myself on the streets of NYC at Dean and Deluca getting a coffee and scone :)

I don’t care much for Pumpkin Spice Lattes…imagine that?  I do however secretly wish Starbys will do an early launch for the Christmas beverages so I can get an eggnog fix.

Football season is here.  No matter how many rants and raves you see on Facebook…remember don’t take it personal.  It’s just football!  Let them rant and rave because at least they believe in the value of a “team”.

Should I change my hair color for fall?  Nah…I’m getting gray hair.  I just need a good highlight.  Remember that time you decided to dye your hair dark because you were in the midst of reading the Twilight series and thought it sounded cool?  Yeah…that was awesome.

Enjoy this season of life because you will never get it back.  Cherish your family, but don’t forget to take care of yourself either.

Just because everything at the store comes in “Pumpkin Spice” scent doesn’t mean you NEED it!  Ha!  It’s hard for me to walk past that aroma and not want to fill every nook and cranny of my home (and car) with the feeling of fall.

Yes FALL….it’s all around us and I couldn’t be more happy about it!fall
