I immediately put Hard Rock the test with a mini-soak of Bug's diapers. They came out of the dryer smelling cleaner than I thought possible. And, at the end of the day.....still no stink! Score one for Rockin' Green. I waited the normal two days before washing the diapers and prepared myself for them to stink after they were removed from the dryer. There was still no ammonia stench! Score two for Rockin' Green. I even experimented and split Bug's diapers into two loads. I washed one with Rockin' Green and one with our current cloth diaper detergent. Our current detergent did not even come close to the cleaning power of Rockin' Green.
My favorite thing about Rockin' Green's Hard Rock version is that Bug's cute, little bottom did not break out in a rash like it has with the other detergents we have used. So if you are looking for a cloth diaper detergent and you have hard water problems, let me recommend Rockin' Green Hard Rock. Your diapers will thank you, trust me!
This review is 100% my own opinion. I did receive a free sample of Rockin' Green Hard Rock detergent but that in no way affected my review.

-BooBoo has not started reading yet, but we are working on it and she can recite/remember many of the books we read together
-She can count to 30 on her own
-She can count to down from 5 to 1
-She can count to 5 in Spanish
-She is learning basic subtraction
-She can write her cousin's name which is only two letters away from her own
-She can stand on one foot and bounce from one to the other
BooBoo does so much that I honestly cannot recall everything she can do. I just know that she is a bright little girl and she teaches me something new everyday.
Bug is now 7 months old and growing so fast! We are still nursing but we have also begun adding in solids. She loves avocado! She still definitely prefers mommy over solids and I have no problem with that. I am slightly thankful that she still does not have any teeth because she has learned to bite down when she is nursing. Ouch! BooBoo had two teeth when she turned four months so this is a new experience. Bug is almost mobile now! She can push herself up on all fours and push herself backwards so I know that it is just a short matter of time before she is going forward full speed. Lastly on the Bug updates is that she is now babbling "dada". The crazy thing is that she almost never says it unless J is home. She loves daddy and now he knows it. =)
*Stay tuned for my post on BooBoo's growth and doctor's appointment at the end of the month!

So now I have begun to look into double and tandem strollers. In all of my research into strollers have found that Kolcraft makes some wonderful ones. You can view Kolcraft's strollers here. I have even found one mama, Madison, who is giving away a Kolcraft Contours Options II Tandem Stroller to one of her lucky readers! Head on over to Life Happens During Naptime to read Madison's review and enter her giveaway! I have already entered and even if I do not win I have at least found one stroller to add to my list!

My oldest daughter, BooBoo, loves to play princess. She will spend hours dressing up in frilly dresses and heels, putting on her tiaras and making anyone in the room her "prince". Lately she has become obsessed with pretending she is Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. With a little girly girl like her the idea of the Princess Party in a Bag from My Princess Party To Go sounded inviting. So I contacted My Princess Party to Go about a blog review and giveaway. I was sent the Sheer Fun Princess Party in a Bag to review. BooBoo was so excited when it arrived that she threw everything on and wore it all day! (She gets very excited when the mail is for her) She also had J wear one of the two crowns that come with the package. Unfortunately, he was not willing to let me take a picture for you fine readers. What did I think about the Princess in a Bag? My Review:
