Do you have ‘comfort socks?’ Gold Toe Oh. So. Soft.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Gold Toe. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Two of my favorite memories of my Grandpa are related to socks. Maybe that’s why I love my collection of socks so much, but I’ll take a gift of them any day! Even in the summer, especially because my husband keeps the house too cold for me, cozy and soft socks are the best.

Relax

My grandpa used to ALWAYS tug at the end of my socks—every time he’d walk past—to give my toes room to breathe, he’d say. When I was younger, I am sure it annoyed me. Now I find myself doing it on my own, in his place. And when you weren’t looking? He’d take a random sock and hang it from a ceiling light. We always knew when Grandpa had been around!

Ya know how you have comfort foods? And your favorite cozy sweatshirt? I have comfort and cozy socks—they’re a necessity for curling up on the couch.

Gold Toe socks

I grew up with Gold Toe socks. I remember my mom buying those classics for my dad! Now they’re a brand name I trust and buy for my own family. Just a few weeks ago I needed new socks for our excursions in Alaska and I made sure to pick up new Gold Toe socks before we left.

The Gold Toe ‘Oh. So. Soft.’ socks are seriously oh so soft. I could do a blind test and pick out my Gold Toes easily. They’re light, which is nice for this warmer weather, and super soft and cozy for curling up on the couch, relaxing after a long day, and feeling comfortable.

In my after-work gym bag, feet up in the porch on a rainy day, curled on the couch with a book… my Gold Toe Oh. So. Soft. socks are usually with me!

Did you grow up with Gold Toe socks? Do you buy them now for your family?

You can find Gold Toe socks for the whole family on their website and follow them on Facebook and Twitter, too.

Pregnancy Tests: newly redesigned First Response Early Detection

I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for First Response. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

The moment you find out you’re pregnant is probably a moment you’ll always remember. Maybe you even took a photo of the positive pregnancy test, a memento to store in the baby book. I have pictures of both of my positive pregnancy tests!

The first time I got pregnant, it just took one test. It was very clearly positive, but I was also about a week late. The second time, I tested earlier and that’s when the pregnancy tests can be confusing. Is there a line or not?! I took multiple tests over multiple days to confirm that pregnancy and had wished I just started with the early detection tests in the first place!

First Response pregnancy tests

The First Response Early Detection Pregnancy Test can detect pregnancy as early as 6 days before your missed period! Its easy-to-read results appear within 3 minutes and have over 99% accuracy from the day of the expected period.

And it gets better… they’ve completely redesigned their Early Detection Pregnancy Test to make life even easier. It’s the small things! The new Comfort Sure design has a nicely curved shape to better fit a woman’s hand, a 50% wider tip, and a longer handle.

You can test anytime of day and it’s designed to detect all relevant forms of urinary hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) throughout pregnancy. Two pink lines? Pregnant! I obviously had to test it out…

Oh, nope, not pregnant over here ;) If we do go for Baby Dickey #3, I’ll be looking for the newly designed Comfort Sure First Response Early Detection Pregnancy Test. It’s a brand name I know I can trust, it’s easy to use, and I can save my sanity by testing early.

Do you remember the moment you found out you were pregnant?

You can find more information at First Response and pick up your own pregnancy tests at all major drugstores and grocery stores for a retail value between $8.99 and $15.99.

Potty Training Tips with Pampers Easy Ups

This post was written in partnership with Pampers.

Potty training is… frustrating? stressful? a lot of work? fun?! We’re right in the middle of potty training with our 3-year-old daughter. Our son was easy—granted, he was almost 4 by the time he potty trained, but he basically just woke up one day and decided that was it. No more diapers. He rarely ever had an accident. Potty training? A breeze! This “training” stuff is nonsense, I thought.

My daughter is proving to be a bit more difficult. She turned 3 about 4 months

Teach Your Children to Excel with the Power of Music

You can use the power of music to help a child with so many different things, including both educational and social growth. Music can help children develop hobbies and become a better-rounded individual. When words are difficult to comprehend or emotions are simply running too high, music is something that can soothe the soul and nurture common ground. As a parent, helping your child harness this creative energy and use it to build self-confidence is one of the most important things you can do.
