Girls Mermaid Costume Review

When I was offered the chance to review a costume from Wholesale Halloween Costumes  I knew right away which costume I would choose. Little J's birthday was coming up and she was always fighting with Big J over the Little Mermaid costume. She was delighted when we let her open it days before her birthday and she now had her own costume so no more fighting... well at least over that one item. (haha)

Since we owned one before I knew what to expect. The fabric is great and it is not the cheap plastic of some of the costumes we have owned, but real fabric. I was surprised this time because there were already strings hanging off and Little J has managed to rip one of the seams. Now Big J's costume has rips in it, however it has had many years of wear and tear.  Thankfully the new costume is nothing we can't easily fix as it is along the seam. The Ariel "button" on the front came off already, but I have found that on most of these types of costumes that piece never lasts long.

Overall we are very happy with our costume choice and I have a feeling it will be worn until it literally falls apart and off of Little J.  I do not mind one but as the Little Mermaid is my all time favorite Disney movie.  Not too mention it seems to promote bath time in this house because Little J loves to pretend to be a mermaid.. Of course I have to remind her to take her costume off first!

I have recieved and purchased other costumes from Wholesale Halloween Costumes before and have had no issues and will continue to purchase from them in the future. Quality is good and selection is great. 

(I received a free costume in exchange for a review. All opinions here are 100% mine)

Cleaning House: A Mom's Twelve-Month Experiment to Rid Her Home of Youth Entitlement - Book Review

If your children are anything like mine they believe that there are magic fairies that come along and clean, do dishes and cook. Ok my children really know that their father and I do the work but they do fight us when we ask them to clean and they just feel like everything is our job.

When Kay Wyma realized that an attitude of entitlement had crept into her home, this mother of five got some attitude of her own. Cleaning Houseis her account of a year-long campaign to introduce her kids to basic life skills. From making beds to grocery shopping to refinishing a deck chair, the Wyma family experienced for themselves the ways meaningful work can transform self-absorption into earned self-confidence and concern for others.

This book was about a mother who decided to do a 12 month experiment (for lack of a better word) in order to teach her children to be more self sufficent and stop feeling like they were owed everything. My favorite week was when each child had to purchase and cook dinner, I loved how one of the children just chose to purchase fast food while others really got into the planning of the whole thing. I have even used some of the ideas in the book on my own children.

Have you read any good books lately? Share them in the comments!

(I received a copy of this book from Blogging For Books, I received no money in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% mine. )
