Angel Care Movement and sound Monitor

Clay and I received The Angelcare Movement and Sound Monitor for review. I love to review items for Moms as I already have raised my son and can see the things from hindsight. I also have lots of members in my family with babies to discuss all the items so that we can see the benefits for Mommas and dads. Here is what we found in reviewing this item. There is a Movement dectection sensor pad that goes under the baby and will sense if there isn't any movements. Here is what is included

Parent Unit with charging cradle - for you to have next to you.
Nursery Unit for the baby's room and sensor pad 
2x AC Adapters
4 X AAA rechargeable batteries for parental unit

What you will need is is 
4 X AAA Standard batteries

It works great and the sound is very clear. I love this whole set up and as a parent you will be able to sleep soundly until your little one starts to move around with their little cries. Perfect for your family. I give it a 5 thumbs up. You can purchase one for yourself at

Dr Vigilane by Alberto Hazan

     A real page turner here Alberto Hazan's Dr. Vigilante. It took me a bit to get this book up here for review as others in my family read it also. The good doctor works during the day treating patients but at night he goes after those who hurt his patients-- rapist and the like. If you like crime stories you will enjoy this. The book takes a spin as Robert falls in love with Sharon a social worker and starts to rethink his activities. Sharon tells him his outcome will be jail or he'll be dead. All said Pick up a copy and I didn't want to leave any spoilers for you and enjoy the read but be prepared to sit up all night reading as once you get started you won't be able to put this down! If you have a husband who loves to read a great book for Father's Day which isn't too far off too!  To purchase your copy go to

Puracy Product Review

Natural Hand Soap I wanted to take a minute to talk to you all about Puracy Products we have been "checking Out" their products and we really like them. They smell wonderful and work fantastic! I am really picky about what my family uses. The hand soap is great and I had to battle my guys over this as they liked it too so finally I snuck it into the kitchen to work with me.. and I will say it lasts a LONG LONG TIME which was a pleasant surprise as to the amount of handwashing we do especially with the new chicks in the house for the first week (It's too cold in the outside brooder so we let them in the inside brooder for a few days) 
Natural Dish Soapliving on a backyard farm means you are constantly working with food and so it is important to keep things clean and also if possible to work with products that are natural and non-toxic. My son Russell  (Chef Russell) loves to work in the kitchen and we have many discussions about dishes... and the cleaning of them as part of cooking is having things SPOTLESS. He has complained in the past about some dish soap smelling like "AIR FRESHENER" which I thought was interesting .. He liked the dish soap and even though I have a dishwasher I do many BIG POTS from cooking and canning by hand and Puracy dishsoap works fantastic! Don't take just may word for it you really need to try these for yourself and look at all the products they make.. and a little more.. I am super fussy being all german and when you have little ones I like things that are non-toxic around ... so these are awesome if you have kiddies in the house as a grandma this is major. Please Click here to check out ALL THE Great products and would you do me a favor and share this post as I know that non-toxic natural products are hard for moms to find so share this on facebook, twitter, email etc.. with other families to help spread the word.

Liquid Gold Dust n Go

    When I am cleaning there are days I want to move through my chores as fast as I can with Scott's Liquid Gold Dust 'n go this is possible. We have a lot of real wood in our home and we are diligent about keeping it in good shape dusting is a must. 

- lint free
-leaves no oil or residue behind
- it's super fast and easy to keep up with the daily upkeep of my furniture. 
-It also has a great almond scent.

I just love these I never used furniture wipes before and these are so much nicer than a spray can and paper towels. Just a wipe and clean and you are ready to go! Check out all of Scott's Liquid Gold's great products by clicking here
