I have a crush on Amazon!

Prime now

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love Amazon. It’s my go to for buying almost everything. Did you know they have a 30 day price guarantee??!! It’s not something they advertise, but if amazon drops a price of an item that you purchased within 30 days, you can call this number 1-800-201-7575; dial extension 7—ask them about that 30-day price guarantee and they will refund you the difference. It’s as easy as that!

I am an amazon prime member which costs $99/year which I totally think is worth it. It has already paid for itself. With amazon prime your benefits are:

* FREE Two-Day Shipping,
* Prime Instant Video Unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV episodes.
* Prime Music Unlimited, ad-free access to over a million songs and hundreds of playlists.
* Prime Photos – NEW Unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive.
* Prime Early Access – NEW 30-minute early access to select Lightning Deals on Amazon
* Kindle Books Choose one featured early release book for FREE every month with Kindle First.
Borrow one Kindle Book per month from over 500,000 titles for free on any Kindle device with no due dates.

The free shipping and the photo storage has me hooked!
Along with the benefits listed above, Amazon has just rolled out an app called Prime Now in the DFW area which means if you are an amazon prime member and purchase something over $15 they will either deliver it for free within 2 hours or you can pay an extra $7.99 if you need an item within an hour. This past weekend, I put Prime Now to the test.. I had placed an order at 12:30pm and at 2:15pm  the product  was at my front door.

Can you say A-Mazing!! So, if you haven’t tried amazon prime yet, give it a try..they have a free 30 day trial!

Camp Mom…

camp mom!

camp mom!

Last time I checked, summer was months away. Then last week, my son tells me he has 8 more days of school left. Yeah, I did a double take.. and rushed to the calendar. How could these days have come and gone so fast? He was right...8 more days of school left. I scoured the internet for camps and other things to do with my kids. I printed out every kindergarten and second grade worksheet I thought looked challenging and I pinned so many craft projects on pinterest.

Welcome to Camp MOM! Am I the only one who does this? Am I the only one who is crazy?

So this is what the schedule is looking like this far.

730-800 (wake up/ eat/brush teeth)

800-830 (school work)- worksheets with math, multiplication, writing, etc

830-900 – computer work (istation, ABC mouse, Khan academy)

900-915 – Read (my kids have a short attention span)

930-1030 – activity

1030-1100- free time

1100-1130 – lunch

My daily activities I divided into days: monday- craft ,tuesdays – movies, Wedsday- cook, Thursday- outside activity

If you want to keep your child up to date with their studies, I printed out worksheets from the following websites which I find to be really great:

worksheetfun.com

Tlsbooks.com

teacherspayteachers.com

As mentioned above, I find ABC mouse, Khan academy, and spelling city to be great computer programs for the kids.

AND at Camp MOM, we reward good behavior and good work. Thus, I bought this on Amazon

award!

award!

and the kids will be able to collect tokens as they finish their work. They are super stoked about me teaching them this summer. My youngest keeps calling me “teacher” which just makes me laugh. I hope you follow on my blog as I follow-up with what we are doing in camp! I’m sure you will be seeing lots of posts of our crafts and cooking adventures soon.

As for the second half of the day, since I work afternoons, the kids will then go to Camp GRANDMA!! Where I’m sure they will have a blast! Leave me a comment if you have any other sites that might be helpful for the summer!

I have a little baker…

As long as I could remember my son would be right by my side every time I decided to bake something. More than likely it was because he wanted to lick the spoon when I was done, which was okay by me..I just enjoyed the bonding time and I loved how curious he was. I […]

Let’s fly away…

May is Lupus awareness month and I wanted to bring about awareness because it hits close to home for me. Research shows that nearly 2/3 of the public knows little or nothing about lupus. An estimated 1.5 million Americans and 5 million people worldwide are living with lupus. 19 years ago, my twin sister was diagnosed with […]

Disorders in Children- whats going on?

When I was in college, over fifteen years ago, one of my best friends got married. I asked him if he was planning on having children and he replied, ” I don’t think so.” Knowing that he would make an amazing father I asked him why not and he said that he was worried that […]
