Over Thirty Mommy's Thoughts
I am always looking for great way to get my husband and daughter to get their daily fruits and vegetables while limiting the sugary drinks that my daughter consumes.  It is amazing that most "juices" on the shelf are only 5-10% juice and the rest is sugar and water and who know what else.  201 Healthy is full of easy to make recipes for both juices and smoothies.  I love how they sneak in veggies and you never even notice and each recipe details out the nutritional information from calories to carbs to protein content.

We are going to be getting a ton of use out of 201 Healthy Smoothies and Juices for Kids.  We can have a different recipe every day for months!  No more boring smoothies at our place!

Guest Post: 4 Tips for Helping Your Kids Share a Bedroom

4 Tips for Helping Your Kids Share a Bedroom 
Kids' bed.

If you’re having trouble getting your kids to share a bedroom peacefully, don’t give up just yet. Although sibling rivalry is normal, there are a few clever strategies you can use to keep it to a minimum. These involve tackling the issue with an indirect approach instead of calling attention to it. Trying to force your kids to get along will only make things worse.

Separate Spaces

Create separate sleeping and play areas for each child. Having their own space can help ease the tension your kids feel from having to share a room. Put their beds on opposite sides of the room. Set up a small play area near each bed and fill it with toys that they normally don’t share. This should reduce the number of conflicts that occur over toys. Let them know that each child needs to respect the other’s space by asking if they can enter it instead of just barging in.

Individual Design

If your kids are old enough, let them decide how they want to decorate their part of the room. When they’ve each picked a theme, let them choose the paint color or decorations for the walls on their side of the room. Take them shopping, and have them pick out a bedding set to match their theme. Look for accessories, such as lamps or picture frames, that also go with each kid’s theme. Letting your kids decide how they want their area to look allows them to express their individuality. It also emphasizes the fact that they each have their own special space.

Common Area

Set up a common area in the center of the room to balance sharing with the need for individual space. Encourage your kids to use this spot to play together with toys that belong to both of them. You can put a small table with coloring books in this area or a larger toy, such as a dollhouse, that they usually share. You still might get the occasional fight, but you can easily break it up by having each kid go to their separate area. Let them know that the common area is off-limits if they’re not willing to share.


Having a separate space might not be enough for some kids when sharing a room. They might want more privacy when sleeping or playing on their own. A fun way to provide this is by getting bed tents for your kids. These usually feature popular cartoon or TV show characters, so you can let your kids choose which tent they like best. The tents are easy to set up, and they give each of your kids their own private area.
Getting your kids to accept the fact that they have to share a room isn’t always easy, but these tips can go a long way toward helping them adjust. Give them plenty of time, and they’ll eventually become used to the arrangement. Even if things are rough at first, keep in mind that sharing a room will help them build a strong relationship in the long run.

Guest Post Policy

Guest Post Policy

I love having guest authors at Over Thirty Mommy but it has recently been revealed to me that some of the "authors" that I have been working with are not authors at all but rather people who work for companies hired to place (paid) guest posts on blogs (for free).

Effective May 18, 2012, there is a new policy to having guest posts placed at Over Thirty Mommy

Who I Will Accept Guest Articles From:

1. People: readers of my site and fellow bloggers that have articles that fit with the theme of my blog.

2. Companies who have something to bring to my blog.

Article Guidelines:

1. All articles must be original ideas. 100% your own and not posted anywhere else.

2. Article topics must be family friendly, we do not post articles of an adult nature or topic

3. Any links in the article must lead to family friendly sites, preferably your own blog or author site (not paid
    links to companies or products)

I will not respond to email correspondence that says that you are willing to write on any topic I choose or "I have another great article for your site" so please include real information in your request/pitch.


Readers and Bloggers
If you are a reader or blogger who wants to guest post, you are welcome to submit your article for consideration. Articles from readers and bloggers and not subject to a posting fee (provided they are your articles and not paid projects).

2.  I schedule, on average, 2 weeks in advance (sometimes longer). If you have a deadline for having your article published, we can discuss an additional "RUSH" fee.

I am sorry, to my reader and blogger guest authors, that this policy has become necessary.  As much as I love having guest articles at Over Thirty Mommy, I am no longer "in the dark" about these types of schemes and will not be taken advantage of anymore.  I am more than happy to work with companies to post sponsored content but there is now a required posting fee for these types of articles.

Thank you and I look forward to posting your guest posts in the future, provided they follow the new Guest Post Policy.

Snatch That Cat Children's Book Review

Snatch That Cat Children's Book Review

I love reading with my daughter and love it when books teach her morals and lessons. 

About Snatch That Cat
Story by Larry Buttram
Illustrated by Paul Richardson

Susie Bipp is a spoiled little rich girl who can have anything she wants. One day she sees her neighbor's beautiful black cat, Simon, and falls in love with him. When Simon's owner, Mrs. Payne, refuses to sell him to her, Susie decides to steal him. She quickly discovers that things don't always turn out as planned. Will she ever be successful in snatching Simon?


Over Thirty Mommy's Thoughts

What a cute story,at first my daughter was all about the cute kitty but then she started to understand the meaning of the story.  We seem to have skipped the terrible twos and moved on to the treacherous threes, she thinks she gets everything she wants and trows tantrums when she doesn't get it.  I am sure this is partially my fault, she is an only child so we never had to limit what we gave her for siblings.  I think this book is helping her realize that you do not always get your way and can not get everything.  

We have shelves and shelves of books, but very few get read more than a couple times, she definitely has her favorites and Snatch That Cat quickly made the cut to the main shelf of her book collection and is in regular rotation.

Where to buy
Snatch That Cat is available as an ebook through Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble, and in hard copy softcover from the publisher, New Virginia Publications.

Guest Post: 5 Ways To Tell If You Need To Replace Your Car Seat After An Accident

5 Ways To Tell If You Need To Replace Your Car Seat After An Accident 

Crashed Car

Deciding whether or not to replace your child’s car seat after an automobile accident can be complicated because different sources give different recommendations. Car seat manufacturers typically recommend replacing a car seat after any car accident, no matter how minor it is. Other agencies including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, suggest that car seats are safe to continue using after a minor accident.

1. Did your air bags deploy during the accident?

One way to decide if you should replace your car seat is whether the air bags were set off during the accident. If the accident was a direct impact that didn’t trigger the air bags, you may be able to continue using your current car seat. If the accident was at an angle that didn’t trigger the air bag sensor do not use air bag deployment as a determination on whether to get a new car seat for your child.

2. Did you drive your car away after the accident?

If your auto accident was minor enough that you could drive your vehicle away after the accident instead of having it towed away, you might be able to keep your existing car seat for you child. If the accident was severe enough that the car had to be taken away by a tow truck, make sure you replace your car seat.

3. Was anyone injured in the accident?

If the accident was serious enough for someone other than your child in their car seat to get hurt, be thankful that your little one is unhurt and get a new car seat. If your car seat-strapped child was the one injured that means the car seat was likely directly impacted and you should buy a new one. If no one was injured, the accident may be considered minor enough to avoid the need for a new car seat.

4. Is there any damage to the car seat?

Look the car seat over carefully. If you see any damage such as cracked plastic, damaged safety belts or other problems make sure you purchase a new car seat right away. If there is no visible damage to the seat and the accident was minor you should be able to keep using your current car seat for your little one.

5. Would you feel better if you replace it?

Sometimes all signs may point to you being able to keep the car seat you have but you might still be unsure about using it. If it would give you more peace of mind to get a new seat, go ahead and buy a new one. There is no substitute for knowing that your child is as safe as she can possibly be.
If you answered all of these questions and feel confident in continuing to use your child’s car seat, you should be fine to go ahead and keep it. If your previous answers indicate you need a new car seat for your little one, be sure to purchase a new seat before strapping your child back into your vehicle.

Guest Post: How to Tell If Your Child Needs Glasses

How to Tell If Your Child Needs Glasses
Free Happy Girl in Glasses Smiling Creative Commons
A large number of children need glasses at an early age, but their vision problems will most likely go undiagnosed for a long time. Most kids do not like the look and feel of glasses, so they are going to be reluctant to tell you if they are having vision problems. Luckily, there are several signs to look for to help determine if your child is having troubles with their vision. While there are several behavior signs of vision problems, these are the five most likely to tell you if your child needs glasses.


Squinting is probably the most common behavioral symptom of a child that is having vision problems. If you child is having vision problems, then they are most likely seeing a lot of blurry images. Squinting reduces the amount of area that the eyes have to focus on, so it makes it easier for them to see. This is why most kids that need glasses will be seen squinting for extended periods of time. Occasional squinting does not mean your child needs glasses, but it can help you notice a serious problem if it is occurring often.

Covering of One Eye

It is very common for people to have good vision in one eye but deteriorating vision in the other eye. The poor eye is going to cause vision problems, so the children will just cover the eye that does not see properly. This allows them to be able to see without any problems. Unlike squinting, most children will not display this behavior unless they have a vision problem. If you see your child repeatedly covering the same eye, then it is a good idea to take them to the eye doctor.

Head Tilting

If you kid is constantly tilting their head, then this can be a sign of a serious eye problem. Most children that show this behavior are suffering from double vision. Double vision is caused by problems with muscles in the eye. Head tilting takes pressure off of the bad muscles, and helps clear up the double vision. Head tilting is not a normal behavior of most children, so you be able to easily spot the problem.

Reading Too Close

If your child is holding the book very close to their eyes while they are reading or sitting very close to the television, then they may be experiencing nearsightedness. Nearsighted people have no problem seeing clearly when they are close to an object, but their vision gets blurry as they move away. Children choose to deal with this problem by getting very close to what they are trying to see.

Rubbing Eyes

While a child rubs their eyes, this means that their eyes are fatigued. This can be caused by the child being tired and in need of sleep, but it can also be a symptom of vision problems. If your child is constantly rubbing their eyes when they should not be tired, then it may be best to get their vision tested. Rubbing eyes will usually be accompanied by other symptoms, so the vision problem should be easy to detect.

Most of these behaviors are not done by most children, so they should be easy to spot. If you notice your child exhibiting several of these symptoms, then you should take them to get their eyes check. Vision problems can cause serious problems for the child in school, so it always best to be cautious when dealing with the eyes.

RECALL NOTICE: Reported Death, Severe Neck Injuries Prompt Recall of Banzai Inflatable Pool Slides

Reported Death, Severe Neck Injuries Prompt Recall of Banzai Inflatable Pool Slides Sold by Walmart and Toys R Us

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Wal-Mart Stores Inc., of Bentonville, Ark. and Toys R Us Inc., of Wayne, NJ are announcing the recall of about 21,000 inflatable Banzai in-ground pool water slides.

During use, the slide can deflate, allowing the user to hit the ground underneath the slide and become injured.

The slide is also unstable and can topple over in both still and windy conditions and carries inadequate warnings and instructions.

The CPSC is aware that a 29-year-old Colorado mother died in Andover, Mass. after fracturing her neck going down a Banzai in-ground pool water slide which had been placed over the concrete edge of a pool. The victim hit her head at the bottom of the slide because it had partially deflated.

The CPSC and the retailers are aware of two other injuries which have occurred in a similar manner, including a 24-year-old man from Springfield, Mo. who became a quadriplegic and a woman from Allentown, Pa. who fractured her neck.

The recall involves Banzai in-ground pool water slides designed for use with in-ground pools. The vinyl slides have a blue base, yellow sliding mat and an arch going over the top of the slide. By connecting a hose to the top of the slide, water can be sprayed on its downward slope. The words 'Banzai Splash' are printed in a circular blue, orange and white logo, shaped like a wave on either side of the slide.

The recalled slides, which were manufactured in China by Manley Toys, Ltd, were sold at Walmart and Toys R Us nationwide from January 2005 through June 2009 for about $250.

The recalled slides have the barcode number 2675315734 and model number 15734. Both the barcode and model number appear on the original packaging but are not on the actual slide.

CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop using the product and return it to the nearest Walmart or Toys R Us for a full refund. Consumers can also cut the two safety warning notices out of the slide and just return that portion.

For additional information from Walmart, call (800) 925-6278 between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at

For additional information from Toys R Us, call (800) 869-7787 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. ET Monday through Saturday and between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday, or visit the firm's website at

SpiritHoods Kids Review

My daughter loves accessorizing.  Be it hats, scarves, jewelry, purses, you name it if she thinks she can use it to spice her outfit she has it or wants it.

About SpiritHoods
SpiritHoods connect kids in a unique and creative way to nature and our animal friends. SpiritHoods are about friendship, family, love, generosity, and bonding with nature. A SpiritHood is more than just a cool furry animal hat, it inspires children to bond in a completely new way to the world around them.

We believe in the conservation and protection of both the planet and it’s animals, and feel strongly about educating kids about animals, and empowering them with the ability to make a difference. To help give back we’ve partnered with, and are actively donating a portion of our proceeds to, several non-profit organizations dedicated to wildlife conservation. We call this Product Blue.

A SpiritHood feels cuddly and soft, but is built to withstand the “tough love” that kids give their favorite things. It is our goal that each SpiritHood grows with your child and lasts a lifetime. Our hoods are handmade with the best quality faux fur. We would never harm our furry friends.  All SpiritHoods are manufactured in Los Angeles, CA.

When you purchase a SpiritHood with the PRO BLUE logo, they donate 10% of net profits to a non-profit organization dedicated to helping that particular Spirit animal. A major goal of theirs is to educate people on the importance of helping these animals and empower them to make a difference. Buy a SpiritHood, Help an animal.

Over Thirty Mommy's Thoughts
Over Easter weekend, I saw a young girl at an Easter Egg hunt wearing the most adorable Husky hat with paws on the ends. It was so cute.  I knew that Beans would LOVE it so I looked online to see if I could find it but had no luck.  Then out of the blue I was contacted to see if I wanted to share SpiritHoods with my readers.   We were given the opportunity to review the half version of the Panda Hood (shown above), Half versions are shorter, have flaps to cover your ears (instead of full scarves) with a hidden pocket on one side and the Panda one has cute pom poms at the end of ties on the flaps (that my daughter likes to fluff in my face).  Half versions of the hoods are available in the adult shop if you are looking for them, it took me forever to figure that one out.

Full length Hoods retail for around $79 and the half size ones are about $69

One of my favorite features is that the hoods can be washed.  My daughter did not want to take it off so it got a bit messy when she ate with it on. They do recommend dry-cleaning your hood or hand washing your hood in cold water and air drying but if you have the Doodle Hood, you can wash it alone in the washing machine on "delicate" with warm water.


Where to Find SpiritHoods:
SpiritHoods are available at boutique shops and retailers across the country as well as online from their site.

Lightening Fast Japanese for Kids and Families: Review and Giveaway

Lightening Fast Japanese for Kids and Families
by Carolyn Woods

My husband and I have wanted to teach our daughter a second language since she was born.  We worked with her on sign language to help her communicate with us before she could speak but we wanted to teach her Japanese or Italian to help her learn some of her heritage.

My husband is 1/2 Japanese and I am 1/2 Italian, since he knows a little Japanese, I thought that would be a good one to start with and it would also help me out since I work for a Japanese company and wouldn't mind learning some conversational Japanese so that I can communicate with members of our staff and senior management.

Since I have almost zero knowledge of the Japanese language, I wanted to start with something easy that both my daughter and I could learn together.

About Carolyn Woods:
Carolyn Woods is a busy mom of 4 trying to do things better, faster, cheaper! Follow her for science activities, best educational books and games, and family friendly fun! Also author of the “Lightning Fast Languages” books, available at

For other books available by Carolyn Woods you can visit her Amazon author page or her blog 

About Lightening Fast Japanese:
This book translates daily conversations you might have with your children into Japanese with phonetic pronunciation – so you can have conversations with your family in Japanese while learning it!

Other Languages available: French, Spanish, Italian, German, and Chinese.

Over Thirty Mommy's Thoughts:
Over all I liked Lightening Fast Japanese for Kids and Families very much.  My daughter and I find it fun to practice our words while getting dressed, having meals and doing things around the house.  I have almost zero knowledge of the Japanese language so I do find myself getting confused on pronunciation (sometimes my husband who does know a little Japanese looks at me like I am an idiot) but my daughter and I work through it and do our best.  I will be making flash cards to go along with words we are learning in the book so that we can label things and practice.  While my daughter (she is three) has not memorized any of the words yet, we have only had a few 15 minute sessions so far, she is able to repeat them back to me and remember them for short periods of time.

I look forward to spending more time with the book and learning more along with my daughter.

One lucky Over Thirty Mommy reader will win a copy of Lightening Fast Japanese for Kids and Families.  Available in mobi (kindle), epub, pdf, and paperback. ENDS 5/16 at 12:01 AM

First time children’s book author Nick Dazé, is in the final days of his campaign to raise funding to independently publish his children's book

First time children’s book author Nick Dazé, is in the final days (63 hours to be exact) of his campaign to raise funding to independently publish his children's book Roger Nix President at Age Six. 
The story is about kindergartener Roger Nix, an ordinary boy: Roger loves kindergarten, playing make-believe, and hanging out with his imaginary friends (a baby donkey named Jack and a baby elephant named Abe). But when he learns about the plans of Old Man Plee, a perennial presidential candidate, to shut down schools and send kids to work in factories as an austerity measure; Roger decides to run against Old Man Plee as a defender of “school and summer vacation, learning and imagination”. Of course Abe and Jack are there to help him every step of the way.
Nick Daze and his incredible Kickstarter campaign (

projects/787960356/roger-nix-president-at-six) have already raised nearly $22,000 and only has $8,000 more to go in order to put the book into production.  The book has been fully written by Daze and the illustrations beautifully crafted by Bill Robinson . Each $30 pledge towards the Roger Nix campaign comes with a first edition hardcover copy of the book, delivered in time for the new school year this fall.  This is a timely story that is fascinating, engaging, and a thought-provoking read for both kids and parents written by a imaginative adult who was encouraged to explore his imagination as a child.
Here is an excerpt from the book:
Roger stood up quickly. He had something to say
With a wink from Jack and a trunks-up from Abe.
I’ll run against him,” Roger said with a shout.
I’ll run for president, have you no doubt!
To close school would be nothing short of a crime
You can't fool all us kids, not all of the time."
He stood on his desk and they all watched and wondered
As Roger kept talking, his voice boomed and thundered.
“We’ll beat him and keep all the schools as they are
Or make them way better. We’ll shoot for the stars!
We go to school so one day we'll go far,
Not because it is easy–because it is hard!
We are KIDS! The whole point is to learn and have fun
And to use our wee noggins...
So Abe, Jack, and Roger got to work right away.
"That kid's on to something," his parents would say.
He made lots of speeches; he shook lots of hands
He toured a big factory that made rubber bands.
Then one night on the tube, to Old Plee’s disdain,
The news ran a story on Roger’s campaign.
“Roger Nix, daydreamer and ultimate kid,
Is gaining on Plee in his presidential bid.”
But everyone knew that sooner or later
Roger would have to be quite the debater.
Because one night soon, under some bright marquee
A debate would take place between Roger and Plee.
