Snug Plug n Play Kids Headphones #KidsHeadphones





I was excited to be able to review the Snug Plug n Play Kids Headphones because my son enjoys spending time on the computer. He often plays games that have sound and he also has some homework reading assignments that have sound. If anyone else is watching tv, it is hard for my son to hear the sound from the computer and it's hard for the person watching tv to hear the tv. So, these headphones seemed like a good solution.



These kid's headphones are the ideal companion to your kids' multimedia entertainment or learning experience. They allow your kids to safely engage in music, movies, video games and learning software with fun and ease. Just Plug n Play! They are perfect for kids aged 3+ and were designed exclusively with children in mind. The adjustable headband guarantees a perfect fit while soft, comfortable ear cushions protect the ears at all times. The cable is thick and ready for heavy use, and is only attached to one side of the headphones. Left and right are clearly marked on each ear. They offer Universal Compatibility with a 3.5mm jack, so they work with virtually all smart phones and tablets, including the iPhone, iPad, and Samsung Galaxy S. You can also use them with mp3 players, car entertainment systems, laptops, desktop computers, and handheld video game systems. The headphones provide high quality sound for them, and peace and quiet for you! If you're tired of the constant stream of noises coming from your kids' collection of electronic devices, these over ear kids headphones provide an excellent listening experience for your child, while also keeping the surrounding house or car peaceful and quiet. You can enjoy the sweet sound of silence as your child enjoys their entertainment or educational media.



As soon as I opened the package, and my son saw the headphones, he kept begging me to take a picture of them(for my blog post), so he could try them out. I picked the color green for the headphones because he loves the Ninja Turtles. You can also choose other colors like pink or purple. He is able to plug them in the computer himself and can unplug them if needed. He likes that you can adjust the size to fit your head, that they're green, that they're comfortable, and that he can hear the sound better when they're on.



As you can see, he is very happy with the Snug Plug n Play Kids Headphones. He wears them all the time! If you would like to check them out for yourself, here's the link to them on Amazon.

I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post, however all opinions expressed are my own.

My Week!

What an overwhelming week I had!

On Sunday, I had to bake lots of things and do tons of dishes. I filled the dishwasher, dish drainer, and 4 dish towels!

On Monday, I had more baking to do!

On Tuesday, the teachers started back to school, so as a long-term sub., I went back too. The morning started with a meeting for the entire district. It went longer than it was supposed to and we had a new teacher meeting back at school, so I had to leave early. When I got the keys to my classroom and opened the door, I expected it to be just about ready to go. Well, it was a huge mess! The teacher had been working on it, but she had the baby early, so it was left in a huge mess!

On Wednesday, my daughter and son came to help me try to create some order out of the giant mess. We were able to get some things done, but there was still so much more to do.

On Thursday, it was my lowest day. We had a staff meeting in the morning, and that just brought my spirit's down. The principal is not a very good leader, in fact it's like he thinks he's on vacation all the time(and dresses like it too), and everything is fun and games. There were a lot of arguments and bad language during the meeting and it just made me sad that my daughter has to go to public school, and it was sad for me too. The teacher came to answer my questions and a little bit more got done, but not enough. The internet has been down all week, so I wasn't able to learn how to do the attendance or grades.

On Friday, I decided to not keep getting sick over this, and was determined to get stuff done. The department head told me it was going to be my class for at least 3 months, so I just needed to think of myself as the teacher and just go ahead and do things. The other teacher came in for a little while and gave me some packets for ASL I and II. I still don't have anything for ASL III. We finally got our class rosters at 2:30 in the afternoon! However, this day was a little bit better. The classroom finally looks like a classroom(with some help from my new friends, the custodians), and the syllabus was copied.

On Saturday, I went grocery shopping and cleaned because my parents were coming over for dinner. My husband, daughter and I went to the classroom for a couple of hours. He's a software engineer, so he was going to see if he could fix my internet, but it's something on the school's end that's wrong, and I don't have access to that room. My daughter and I were able to get everything else ready in the room and amazingly, my first week packets were copied(one of the copiers broke down, so the copy guy was struggling to get it all done)! Unfortunately, the top page wasn't stapled on and my daughter and I had 10 minutes to staple them before the alarm would go on. At home, I was able to get all my papers organized and I'm ready for the first 2 weeks of school.

How was your week?

Summer with Snuggle Bear Mission #TeamSnuggle #Spon

I'm on the Summer with Snuggle Bear mission! As a member of Team Snuggle, I was sent a free Snuggle Bear to join us on our summer adventures. Summer is a time to create fun memories with friends and family. What better way to celebrate summer than with Snuggle Bear by our side! Snuggle® fabric softener, the Ultimate in Snuggly Softness® and Long-lasting freshness, is always accompanied by its beloved mascot. Snuggle Bear was our perfect companion for summer fun and of course, summer snuggles.



My son was so excited when Snuggle Bear came! He thought he was very cute and looked just like the bear in the Snuggle commercials on tv. Snuggle Bear had fun playing basketball with us in our backyard.



My son wanted to do water coloring one day, so he asked if Snuggle Bear could join him. So, Snuggle Bear helped my son paint the burning bush. We're learning about Exodus in church, so it was very appropriate that they chose to paint the burning bush.



Snuggle Bear also had a lot of fun playing with his friend, Winnie the Pooh. One day, Pooh Bear set a trap for him because he stole Pooh Bear's shirt. Another day they were having fun riding around in the Ninja Turtle Shell Raiser. My son even made some "honey" for Winnie the Pooh and Snuggle Bear to enjoy while we eat our meals. It's been fun seeing my son use his imagination.

My Week

This was my last week before I go back to work at school, so I tried to get everything done I needed to this summer. I almost made it, but not quite. Oh well, I'm still proud of my accomplishments and I got a lot more done this summer than I usually do.

Last Sunday, we really enjoyed being back at our church. It sure was a lot different than the previous week. We felt really welcome and enjoyed talking with lots of people - adults and kids.

Monday was not a good day. When I was getting ready, I started to clean my glasses. One side fell apart in my cloth! I heard the screw drop. I cannot see without my glasses, so I had to bend down as close as I could to the floor and search for the screw. It's amazing how many blurry things on the floor look like a screw, but I finally found it. I made my way to the door, and couldn't open it because my hands were full - I only had 3 fingers available to open the door. I prayed for God to help me, and I was able to open the door. The kids were still asleep and my husband was on a phone meeting with India. I tried to quietly call his name from the top of the stairs, but he didn't hear me. I had to make my way down stairs I couldn't see and not being able to use the handrail because my hands were full. So, I had to slide my foot down one stair, slowly, until I felt the bottom and then bring down my other foot. When I finally made my way down, I'm sobbing, trying to quietly call my husband's name. He had to put the phone call on mute because he didn't want them to hear me crying. I handed him all the parts, but he was busy, so he couldn't fix them right then. I made my way back upstairs to wake up my oldest son and get the glasses' screwdriver. It took me awhile to get him a bowl, and when he realized what was going on, he said I better just let him prepare his breakfast. Finally my husband was able to fix them, and it was so nice to see again!

Then, later that day, my son had a dr's appointment. On his way home, someone backed into him! They were in a left turn lane and decided they wanted to go to McDonald's. They just threw it into reverse, ignoring his 20 honks, and backed into him. Thankfully no one was hurt. Their trailer hitch is imprinted in my son's bumper now. The other guy's insurance is going to cover it, so tomorrow we have to bring his car to the collision center and then get a rental.

On Tuesday, it was my daughter's last high school registration, since she's a senior. This registration was very quick; in fact it was the fastest it's ever been in 6 years. We also had to go to DMV so she could take her written test again. She passed a year ago, but ran out of time to get her driver's license. It was neat because the lady that processed her paperwork, recognized us and remembered she was the one that also processed her paperwork a year ago. She remembered us because she had religious socks in her cubicle last year and we commented on them and wondered where we could buy some. She remembered that too. In the afternoon, I was able to type up some of my notes from the meeting I had 3 weeks ago with the Sign Language teacher.

On Wednesday, we ran errands and then had a meeting with 2 of our Sunday School workers. I was able to type up some more of my Sign Language notes and sold one last thing on ebay. The rest of the items that didn't sell, will just have to be sold at our garage sale.

On Thursday, it was my youngest son's registration for 3rd grade. His registration is usually really easy - we just have to drop off some paperwork. Well, there was a long line and the people in front of us had been there for an hour! We ended up having to wait 50 minutes for our turn! Later that day, I was able to finish typing up all my Sign Language notes.

On Friday, my husband had the day off, so we went through 3 kitchen drawers and got them straightened up. Then, we went to Legoland. Since my daughter works there, we were able to go for free. She joined us when her shift was over, so the food that we purchased, was 30% off.

On Saturday, I went grocery shopping, then took my daughter to her last day of work at Legoland. She isn't going to have time to work during school. I got some cleaning done and did some more things for my Sign Language class. My son and I went out to get the mail and a neighbor was outside. He invited my son to play basketball with him. Then his dad came out and challenged them to a game. It was really neat, because they're both 8, and he was teaching them how to play. We rarely get to play outside with anyone, so it was a great experience for my son.

I'm pretty nervous about what this week will hold with teacher meetings and getting my class ready, starting Tuesday. I will let you know how it goes.

So, how was your week?
