This great review is brought to you by Mama Smith Reviews

Touchdown To Family Time

This month, I received my second The Surviving Momhood Box subscription box and I love everything! October's theme is Touchdown To Family Time - for when mom needs a timeout. This box was truly a "surviving momhood" box. It was packed full of goodies for mom and kids! No two boxes are the same because no two moms are the same. I will have a detailed review of all the items I received but for now, I will just let y'all know what came in my box.

I received:
Can you believe it?! So many goodies packed in to one monthly subscription box! Subscribe here for just $24.24 a month! Don't miss out on next month's box which will be ALL items for MOM - because we deserve to be pampered! Tell them Mama Smith sent you! Keep an eye out for the detailed review but in the mean time, check out my unboxing video below!

Guest Post: Adventures of a Mom with Teenagers by Reviews 411

 I just want to say thank you to Andrea from Reviews 411 for sharing such a wonderful post!

Marco 7th Birthday - Marco and Alyssa

Being a mother of two teenagers is quite an adventure. When my children were younger, they were such great and well behaved toddlers. They did not cry too often and were usually easy to make happy. Many people that my husband and I know were jealous at just how well behaved our kids were compared to their own.

Halloween Cleo De Nile Collage
\Now that both of our children are much older, it is amazing to me when I think about their younger years. They have definitely grown into their own personalities and are both so different from one another. My son is very much laid back most of the time, and my daughter really enjoys anime and is very good at drawing anime characters… I feel that she gets her artistic side from me which I inherited from my father who draws classic cars extremely well.  
A photo posted by Andrea Nugent (@andge808) on
  One thing that has definitely changed as my children have gotten older is their attitude toward mom. I went from being their “go to” hero and best friend to their distant red headed cousin that they want nothing to do with. They used to be so great at confiding in me… I even had the illusion in my head that they would grow up with their mom being their BFF. I have always wanted to have that type of relationship with my children since before I even became a mother.  
A photo posted by Andrea Nugent (@andge808) on
  I love my kids and I am proud to be their mom… although I do wish that they would look up to me with the same sort of adoration as they did when they were youngsters. I created this post for all you mothers out there who have young children. If there is one thing that I have learned having two children of my own, it is that you cannot anticipate what your children will grow up to be like. No matter how much you try to groom them and mold them into a specific person, they will always be the people they want to be.  
  Talk to you soon

Hello Kitty Blue tooth Speaker Review

This is a great Christmas present for your little girl who loves to jam to music! I know it has not only been great for my daughter, but its been great for me too! We sometimes hook it up in the Kitchen and dance and bake cookies together. If we just used my phone the music would never really get too loud, thankfully we got this ADORABLE Bluetooth speaker to help us Jam out!

I love this small speaker, it packs a big punch for being so little. I was really surprised because when it fits into the palm of your hand you don't really expect it to be too loud. To my surprise, the sound is great and not scratchy at all! Now, you didn't think I would go through this whole review and not mention just how cute it is did ya?! Its the perfect gift for the little girl in your world, or the little girl in You! 

Information from the Company

Share your favorite music with family, friends and Hello Kitty, with this Bluetooth wireless speaker system. Enjoy crisp and clean wireless audio through the powerful, amplified speaker from any Bluetooth enabled device including many smartphones. There is also an auxiliary input jack, with cable included, to connect and play music from your computer, MP3, CD player or other digital audio devices. A built-in USB port has been included for the convenience of portable device battery charging.

Framesi Color Lover Smooth Shine Shampoo & Conditioner Review

I am very particular about what I use to wash my hair with. So when I had the chance to review this set, needless to say I was very skeptical. But, I have to say, much to my surprise it made my hair feel great! I hate the feeling of build up on my hair, as a mother of two small kids, I don't always have time to take a shower everyday. So my hair does get thick and greasy from time to time. As you can see in the picture below my hair was very thick, this is about 2 days worth of no shower. 

Then after I used the shampoo, it felt so clean! It didn't have that gunky build up feeling some conditioners have! My hair even felt healthier! The smell is also something I look for in shampoo & conditioner, this one had a teatree oil smell to it mixed with citrus!

Kids Academy Apps Review

My daughter loves this app, the characters are so easy to follow and not to mention ADORABLE! I love apps that encourage learning with play, it's very important to me that my daughter, a 3 year old, get the best opportunities to educate herself. Being able to make the mind work towards a reward is key in getting children wanting to learn! She was able to trace letters easier with this app then other we have used, and that made her want to continue playing. She sometimes has trouble with her SPD, but thankfully this app has helped her gain great strides already!

Again I am blown away by how great these apps are! My daughter loves this one as well and finds it fun to draw along. She very much enjoys the characters, and with her SPD she finds the repetitiveness comforting! We will continue to use this app to help prepare her for Preschool!

What a great way to get your kids active in learning! My daughter has enjoyed this app very much, and alongside her brother who watches her as she plays, it has drawn them in and kept their attention! She is learning so much from this app, and I will continue to use it in her preparation for preschool. I love all the educational aspects of this app, and my daughter sees that it makes learning fun, and that very important! Plus who doesn’t love BINGO?!

You can get your apps here! I highly Recommend them!

Hoodsbee Review

I was so excited to be able to review the Hoodsbee Hoodie! How cute is it that it not only is a hoodie, but it doubles as a plush toy! My daughter was super stoked to try it on, as soon as I pulled it from the package she screamed "OMG I love it!" in her tiny human voice. Seriously too cute. She put it on an immediately went into imagination mode and started to run around the house doing her best monster Roar! I will defiantly be looking to get her younger brother one too! 

How cute is this?!?!

We got the character Clobber, and he is just the perfect fit for my little munchkin! His profile says that he loves to get physical playing sports and any kind of games. Like my Aleksus, he is super competitive, and wants to always be the winner! Clobber give it his best effort to stay calm , but once he's in the zone...WATCH OUT!

Even Mikey wanted to try on the Hoodsbee!~

A little more info from their website

Hoodsbee is an innovative hoodie that transforms into a plush friend or a plush friend that transforms into a hoodie. With Hoodsbee, there are so many options. This unique patented technology allows your little one to carry their travel plush buddy, put it on when it is cold, fold it back up into a plush and use it as a head pillow for when they are tired. It's as easy as 1,2,3! Fold, roll and snap! Now, not only do you have a pillow and a travel companion, but you also have a nicely wrapped up hoodie that is easy to store or travel with.

Hoodsbee was created when the design team at HLL design was trying to come up with a new kind of character hoodie jacket that could have a rolled up function into the hood.  After seeing the shape it created, they added arms, legs, eyes and ears to the hood to make it look more like a plush toy.  But it was still just a jacket rolled into the hood.  They found that by pulling the sides tightly together and fastening them in a specific spot, along with the front of the hood being fastened as well, that it kept everything nice and compact, tight and clean looking. And thus, hoodsbee was created.

ShadyBaby Launch promo Review

Shady Baby Launch Review!


If your a mother of children, you know that there are times when you need some extra shade for your babies face aside from the tint on the window.  GC Babies has such a great product for you to use! I have tried other cling shades before and honestly they just never stuck on right. They would fall down or were oddly bent that they would stick. I was so happy with GC Babies cling shades! they never fall down and stick PERFECTLY to the window! They don't have those suction cup that leave saliva rings on your windows either which is great! 

As you can see, as soon as I pulled them out of the package they sprung into action! They weren't all bent or ruined and stuck right on to my window! They haven't fallen down ONCE! I am very happy with this shade!

We stand behind our products with pride.
