My tips on Traveling with Children

Traveling with Children can be extremely painful fun.  We have learned over the years a few tips that help make a trip less painful a success.
1. Bring LOTS of activities and by activities I mean movies--we have a DVD player in our car and it was the best investment we have made.  My kids get car sick so by watching movies they get distracted.
2. Bring extra's of things that your kids normally need (for example binkies... Katie doesn't still have a binkie but when I took these pictures she did and I always traveled with 4)  I also pack extra wipes, diapers and ziplock bags work great in an emergency. 
3. Don't be in a hurry.  This has been a mistake we have made often.  When traveling with children especially YOUNG children you will need to plan on extra stops for food, bathroom trips, and just getting the wiggles out. 
4. Bring snacks.  This will save time and money.  Back to my ziplock bags again I fill them individually for each child so that we avoid sharing spills and messes.  I recommend crackers, cold cereal, fruit, and other kid friendly food.
Can you imagine her fighting with her siblings... I didn't think so.


And the last tip is...
5. Travel at a time when your children are most likely to sleep be in a good mood.
Happy Traveling!
I was not compensated for this post I just like ziplock bags and that is the brand that I buy.

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot.  It's a gift I know. I digress.

Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you.

All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great.
You will need:
3 Tablespoons Baking Soda
8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide
1 drop dish soap
Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longer effective due to …

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned.....
