In our home we try and limit the amount of TV that we let Rose watch. However we do not prohibit her from it. I watched TV as a child and I think I turned out alright. We do not use the TV as a babysitter, we watch together as a family. When we watch TV with Rose our favorite stations is Sprout. The shows are geared towards younger children. Some of Rose's favorites: Barney & Friends, Zooboomafoo, Franny's Feet and The Wiggles.

My Own Shower is a a special showerhead designed for Children. Its a Kid Friendly design and a Kid Friendly height. Upon receiving the item to review I thought it would be complicated to setup. You have to attach My Own Shower onto the current showerhead. Neither my husband or myself is very handy. But to my surprise- he did it!!!
Once we got My Own Shower on we suctioned it onto the wall and now theres a shower just Samantha's size. We showed her the shower and asked her if she wanted to go in. My husband went in with her to help her wash up and assist her so she doesn't fall. Then Samantha told him "no Daddy, get out, this my shower, I do it." She just turned two and its full force- she knows everything and can do everything herself. You can definitely tell that she felt like a big girl with the shower. It was a fun little fish that squirted her with water and just her height. Now rather than every night her asking for baths she says "how bout a shower?, my shower?"
The only thing I did not like about it was it made the water pressure on my shower a little bit lower. But sometimes you have to make sacrifices, and Samantha loved it enough that its totally worth the water pressure being a little less.
My Own Shower sells for $19.99 - $24.95. Each comes with one character. You can Purchase My Own Shower on http://www.rinseace.com/shower-products/my-own-shower. There are 3 different characters, you can buy additional characters for $5.95 each.
Here are some pictures of Samantha loving her new My Own Shower.
Here is how the bathroom shower looks:

So.. the story goes:
I found out in mid-September that I was pregnant.
I have been to the doctor three times and all three times all so say was the sac.
So I continued to go and get my hormone levels tested. She said that they are going up normally and would have expected to see something by now. That gives her reason to think the pregnancy may be ectopic. She gave me a referral to a sonogram place to get another sonogram done. I am going tomorrow, so I will share the results once I know. They will be able to tell if it is ectopic or whats going on. She said if it is then its better to find out sooner because the longer you wait the more dangerous it is. i had a miscarriage over 3 years ago, before I had Samantha and omg the heartache and sadness still lives with me every day. I do not want to go through that again. I am hoping and praying that the baby is ok and that she just wasn't able to get a good view. The way it sounds from the doctor is that odds are against me but maybe with a little bit of hope and some prayers everything will be ok.

Perhaps its cause I was on vacation last week?
Anyways, I don't think you want to miss out.
Eebee Adventures: 2 board books (ends tomorrow)
Boca Beth Language Set (ends wednesday)
Both are great and have really low entries.
For those who live in New York, you know it was a pretty crappy week.
Here is the how our vacation went:
My husband and I decided to take our vacation last week because Samantha's birthday was on October 13th. So my husbad and I wanted to make it like a very special birthday week for her.
On Sunday we went to Sesame Place. Have any of you guys been there recently? Perhaps it was because we went at this time of the year when they are only open on weekends. But that place was nuts beyond belief! We got there about 11am and left at 5pm. It was expensive to get in, but we expected that. We had luch which costed $35, our dumbasses figured lets just get to the park and eat there. Big mistake! Then the park was so crowded. I honestly think they should prohibit strollers. In such a small place it is very very dangerous. I can not even tell you how many times my daughter or myself almost or did get hit by a stroller. So then we waited online for about 45 min. to get a picture taked with Bert. We waited online for and hour and a half to see the Elmo's World show. Which we were one of the last people in. Then the parade at the end of the day was totally crazy. We paid a ton of money and feel like we didn't really get much from it. I thought Sesame Place would be a lot like Disney in the sense that the characters would be walking around. None of them were. We only saw all of them in the parade at the end of the day. The lines for the rides were over an hour and a half long. It was either we saw a show or went on a 30 second ride. So we decided the show instead. Samantha had a great time. If she was an adult though, she would have left there very very frustrated. We ran into other parents that felt the same way we did and even a couple of kids that whined that they wanted to go home. At Sesame Place, the children shouldn't want to go home. They should be having the time of their lives. But you really couldn't blame them for feeling that way. It really sucked.
Then another day of our vacation we went to White Post Farms, a petting farm in Long Island. Samantha had a blast there. She got to feed the animals and ride on the hayride. We picked pumpkins and played in the playground there.
On the 13th for Samantha's Birthday, we bought her the Loving Care Dollhouse from Fisher Price, then had a little party with family. She loved it. She loved the dollhouse. It is all that she has been playing with since.
Then on Wednesday Samantha started not feeling too well. The weather started getting crappy. Samantha started coughing that night and we had an appointment for thursday for her 2 year checkup. Well, she was sick so it ended up being a visit for that. The Dr. said she has the croup Croup is a condition that causes an inflammation of the upper airways — the voice box (larynx) and windpipe (trachea). It often leads to a barking cough or hoarseness, especially when a child cries.(http://kidshealth.org/parent/infections/bacterial_viral/croup.html#) So the rest of the week we spent trying to make her feel comfortable and get her better. It is the worst at night. So its been a couple of sleepless nights.
I want a vacation Do-over. It was not much of a vacation!

I printed out the $10 coupon from my previous post. Then after work my husband and I rushed to Toys R Us. We got the last one. It was sitting all lonely on a seperate shelf where it didn't belong. We grabbed it up! We got the last one in the store. It was a really close call!!
So then we went to the register to pay. It was on sale at Toys R Us for $19.99. So with the $10 off coupon it came out to $10.99. Then Toys R Us gave a $5 gift card with purchase. So if you deduct that... the grand total was $5.99.

So, we arrive in New Jersey at the DoubleTree Hotel around 2. Everything went well. All the gues started arriving. We got Samantha down for a nap. Then prepared to go to the (NON) Rehearsal dinner which was hosted by my husbands parents. It must have costed a ton of money and was very nice indeed.
Then, we go back to the hotel. My husband was changing Samantha's poopy and all of a suden the fire alarms go off. Yes, you heard that right.. FIRE ALARMS. I rush out with Samantha and my husband. Initially you always think its a false alarm and act on it as though it is for real. Well, this time it was definitely for real. The restaurant toward the front of the DoubleTree hotel was on fire. Wouldn't you take a fire at your hotel the night before your wedding as some kind of sign?
Well we were outside from 10:30pm to about 1:00 am. Luckily a nice lady let me sit in her car during this time. It happened to rain also while everyone was outside due to the fire.
The next morning we woke up and there was no hot water. So we all had to take bird baths. Brother in law said don't worry about foor, once we get to the place of the wedding there will be a whole setup. Well, there wasn't. The morning of the wedding it was raining. So once we arrived at the site, it was muddy and wet and very very dreary. The wedding was suppose to be outside, howvere, the place setup the entire wedding to be indoors due to the rain and mud and dreariness. This was absolutely not good enough for the bride. She wanted the wedding outside. Therefore, she will have it outside. The place had to set everything up outside. I don't think they were too happy about that. Then came the cocktail hour and reception, I can complain about that too but I won't.
Hold on... One big complaint.... The brides mother had and beat breast cancer. We had left a bag outside and saw her smoking a cigarrette!!! How ungrateful and unappreciative. How can you take surviving breast cancer for granted like that. WOW, That made me very very very angry!
Well, after the reception we head back to the hotel. Now, the bridesparents were suppose to host a sunday breakfast. However, the restaurant caught fire so there is nowhere to cook. But, there is a Mcdonalds, and at least 3 diners within 1 mile. So here is the question. Are you allowed to take credit for a free continental breakfast that was given by the hotel? I mean my husbands parents spent well over $1000 for the rehearsal dinner. Don't you think a free continental breakfast is like a middle finger up. There was 30 people at the dinner and only like 15 at the breakfast. Why couldn't she do it right and have it in the diner? ugh.. whatever..
So we came back home sunday afternoon. I took the day off yesterday. Samantha was drawing and she said look mommy fire. You never know how much these little ones pick up. She did not actually see the fire but expressed it on paper.
What a long weekend I had.
