Early Learning Colors and Shapes Monkey

The Early Learning Colors and Shapes Monkey is recommended for children 18 months and up. When the buttons are pressed, the monkey says the color and shape. There is also a melody mode which plays 6 different tunes when each shape is pressed.

At 2 years old, Z is learning new things daily. He sings the entire alphabet and is working on shapes and colors. The Early Learning Colors and Shapes Monkey is helping him to remember certain shapes and colors. :)

BALM! Baby Teeth Paste - Cleaning Little Teeth Naturally!

Disclaimer: As a BALM! Baby blogger, I received the mentioned product to share my review with you. All opinions are my own.

BALM! Baby

Finding the right toothpaste for my toddler can be a hassle sometimes. I'll usually look for fluoride-free products. The problem is when I look at the ingredients, the paste contains parabens and other weird ingredients I can't pronounce. Or if it happens to be paraben-free, it contains fluoride! 

Many store-bought toothpastes have way too many harmful chemicals in them, which is why I avoid buying them.

My new favorite way to get Z's teeth fresh and clean is by using BALM! Baby's Teeth Paste.

BALM! Baby Teeth Paste

The BALM! Baby Teeth Paste is natural and contains no harmful ingredients or artificial flavors. Pure essential orange oil (safe blend) is used to flavor the paste. I use a pea-size amount (as directed) and let Z brush his teeth. I'll always help him out to make sure his teeth have been thoroughly cleaned.

  • GMO-free
  • Vegan
  • Made in the USA

I'm really impressed with BALM! Baby Teeth Paste - it smells so good, it's safe, and I know my little guy loves brushing his teeth. I also love that his breath smells like he ate a bunch of oranges. ;)

Let's face it. Textbooks are very expensive. You spend hundreds of dollars on them and once the class is done you'll probably never use it again. The college buyback programs can be a hassle and more than likely won't offer 50-100% of the cash you've spent on textbooks.

"Rent Textbooks and Save Up to 80%" offers you a simple, inexpensive way to acquire textbooks online.

-The rental periods are flexible.
-Highlighting in the textbooks is allowed.
-Nearly every textbook you need you'll find at CampusBookRentals.
-Exceptional customer service.
-Free shipping.
-A donation is made to Operation Smile with each textbook that is rented.


CampusBookRentals' new program, RentBack, allows students to rent out their textbooks to other students and make twice as much money as opposed to selling back their books at the end of the semester.
