Moving Moments Make Memories

Do you remember when you had a baby and he/ she became more active and adventurous? Maybe it was scooting across the bed, changing their orientation, or turning over. You were probably excited by these new developments, but not so overjoyed by the messes created by all of this movement.

As little ones get older and more active, they may be crawling, walking, or doing somersaults. This movement may place some serious stress on their diaper and its ability to stay closed and keep your little one comfortable and protected.

Have no fear! Huggies knows and understands your concerns as the parent of a busy little one in diapers. Huggies® Little Movers have been redeveloped with new Double Grip Strips– soft Velcro strips on the sides of the front diaper panel for an improved fit. NEW Huggies® Little Movers Diapers with Double Grip Strips give you baby a comfier fit over time than Pampers Cruisers+. And you’ll take comfort in having to worry about fewer messy accidents to clean up.

Now you can share and celebrate all your baby’s moving movements with other parents. Visit Huggies.com/moments and upload your favorite photo or video of your baby’s best moves! You’ll also find a Huggies® coupon for $2.00 off and have the chance to be featured on the Huggies Facebook page.

My Tips for Keeping Kids Active

It’s not so long ago that I had 2 little active boys that were close in age. They would be bouncing off the walls if they didn’t receive the proper exercise. Tired of overactive kids who make it impossible to get anything done?

Here are 3 of my favorite tips to keep them active in a positive way:

  1. Have a daily playtime. Even young children may get bored. If you can manage to spend 30 minutes per day actively playing and interacting with them, it can help to get their mind and body going and tire them out.
  2. Invest in educational toys. There are lots of cute toys out there, butwhy not invest in toys that are designed to provide a specific benefit to your child? Search out toys that are specifically created to provide educational value. Or look for options intended to provide exercise for your little one.
  3. Get your kids outdoors. It’s easy to do while the weather’s good, but even when it’s not, look for opportunities to get your kids outside the house and active. Take them on walks, go to the local zoo or park, or exercise in your yard. Whatever you do, make it fun and active!

Huggies knows how important it is for kids to stay active even from a young age. Huggies recently partnered with a leading fitness movement expert, Nikki Glor, and MyGym (national children’s fitness center) to show parents how to embrace those “Moving Moments.”

Exceptional Entrepreneur Series: From Executive Assistant to Empowered Entrepreneur

Exceptional Entreprenur Series Graphic 08-26-2013

I’m very excited about this latest installment of the Exceptional Entrepreneur Series! :)

I met Donna Grossman when I purchased one of her handmade products. I was honored to contribute a guest blog post to her own product blog, and I felt that, as a creative entrepreneur, she was the perfect type of person to tell us about her journey to freedom and self-employment. Feel free to leave comments below to welcome her and ask her questions you may have about her various business endeavors.

Hi my name is Donna, and I am an entrepreneur. For 20+ years, I was an Executive Assistant to powerful men. Honestly, I really don’t know how I lasted that long. I think that the everyday chaos kept me going. I love solving the unsolvable and saving the day. Businessmen tend to rely heavily on that.

I think what finally burned me out was the constant taking credit for my ideas. They would be patted on the back and receive bonuses, and I would get a lunch. LAME. I was also tired of being a girl friday – so sexist! One Friday, I came to the realization that I would be giving my notice and starting a new life. A new life with no paycheck or benefits – I couldn’t wait!

My first business was That Girl Knitz, which I still have to this day and has grown by leaps and bounds. I have customers worldwide. Last year, it literally exploded when “What Does the Fox Say?” came out. I make a Fox hoodie, and my knitting needles were flying!

My second business was and is Rockabettie Bands (you can check out the Rockabettie Bands Facebook). In this business, I create products for the strong, edgy woman. I make headbands for lady bikers and pinups. I love these two types of women- they speak to me. I love the fact that they own who they are and don’t look for your approval. They give me strength.

My third and newest business is Rockabettie Boutique, which I will be opening in October 2014 on the square in my town. It will have edgy clothes for women and girls. It will also be my work studio, as I have literally overtaken my home!

Being that I am a woman and have 4 daughters, I strongly believe in the building and encouraging of women. This world is rough on us. We really need to stand together!

You can purchase online, and she ships all over!
