I want to introduce the newest member of our family to you!
This is Sparky!

Sparky is a Dream Team Pet.

Dream Team Pets is much more than a bedtime toy-it's an innovative kid's sleep aid that helps end the bedtime battles of trying to keep your child in bed. Developed with the help of a pediatrician, Dream Team Pets bedtime routine empowers kids as they reward their Pet with stickers and a certificate for a good night's sleep. If the child wakes up from a nightmare, there are no hard feelings because the responsibility is on their Pet, but when they successfully sleep in their own bed, the kids feel a sense of accomplishment as they reward their Dream Team Pet. What makes this unique is that the kids think they are training their Pet, but really they are sleep training themselves!

In my home we have 3 kids and all of their bedtimes are different since they are all different in age.
Sometimes, it can be a constant battle with my youngest.
Sometimes he wants to stay up, or he gets out of bed, or sometimes he is scared and just doesn't want to be alone at night. So when I got the opportunity to test out a Dream Team Pet, I jumped at the chance.

I ordered my Dream Team Pet off Amazon.
They have different animals that you can pick from such as Magical Cat, Playful Puppy and Mighty Lion.
I chose the Playful Puppy because I felt my son would connect with him.
When your Dream Team Pet arrives at your doorstep, he comes with a professionally illustrated book, a certificate of training and and stickers to reward the pet (and child) for good bedtime behavior.
Our Dream Tea Pet Sparky is very soft and snugly.
The book that comes with him is really cute too! It is a hardcover that shares a special story of your pet and how he can defend your child from scary things with the help and training of your child. 
I love how interactive this is and how you can personalize it. My son reads it every night.
Your child also uses the stickers as a reward for completing training of your Dream Team Pet.

All in all this is a super cute concept, and a great opportunity for your child to learn  and get a great sense of pride and accomplishment while interacting with your Dream Team Pet, and at the same time he/she will feel loved and secure.

My son loves Sparky, he plays with him more then at just night. We often find Sparky in the living room or on the kitchen counter. He is a member of our family now and I am impressed with the responsibility my son has learned and yes, it does make bedtime easier since my son knows he has a job to do and he can count on Sparky to be there for him!

Sparky, Our Dream Team Pet is definitely going on the list of Getta's Got To Have Its!
I am also adding him to my holiday gift guide I am working on.
I recommend him to anyone with little ones.

Dream Team Pets is offering my readers 30% off .
That is a great price and there is no better time since we are in the holiday season.

I was not paid for this review, however I did receive the product for free in exchange for my honestopinion and review.

Chronos Pharma Super Premium 5 HTP Review

Super Premium 5 HTP Mood and Weight Support

Dietary Supplement from ChronosPharma

Do you want to proactive about your emotional well being? Emotional eating? Anxiety? Lack of motivation? Want to improve sleeping patterns? If you can say yes to any of these questions and you want to use a safe, natural  way to do so then you might want to try Chronos Pharma`s 5-HTP.  Just two capsules a day and you may be on your way to a healthier and happier life. Chronos Pharma states their products are made from the best ingredients, by the most qualified professionals and at a state of the art FDA approved facility!
 Chronos Pharma states years of research went into perfecting their product so you could have the best possible results. 

So, I ordered these off of Amazon and decided to put these to the test. Anyone who truly knows me
will tell you, sometimes my mood is unstable. Not like psycho unstable, but some days my mood is better then others. I think this is true for most people at some point in their lifetime.
I may also be a little overweight, and these are supposed to also include a appetite suppressant and helps fight headaches and fibromyalgia pain.
These are also supposed to help prevent anxiety and help you sleep better.
This is quite the pill isn't it?

60 Easy to Swallow Capsules
Made In The USA

The main ingredient listed on the bottle is Hydroxytryptophan.
I had to do a little research on Drugs.Com to find out exactly what 
Hydroxytryptophan was and I wanted to share it with you.

5-hydroxytryptophan, also known as 5-HTP, is a dietary supplement made from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia.
5-hydroxytryptophan has been used in alternative medicine as an aid to relieve the symptoms of anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, insomnia, chronic headaches, premenstrual syndrome, binge-eating related to obesity, attention deficit disorder, and chronic headaches. 5-hydroxytryptophan has also been used in treating certain seizures and symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
Not all uses for 5-hydroxytryptophan have been approved by the FDA. 5-hydroxytryptophan should not be used in place of medication prescribed for you by your doctor. -Drugs.Com

These pills arrived very quickly. Right to my door. I just love Amazon.
The bottle contains 60 capsules.
First thing I noticed, that really bugs me is there is no child proof lid on these.
So, if you order these, please be sure to keep them in a safe place.
The suggested use is 1-2 capsules taken at bedtime with 8 ounces of water or directed by a health professional.

I really want to give Chronos Pharma props on that statement above. I have tried various pills from Amazon and some of the bottles do not suggest anything about checking with a health professional. Good Job!
The bottle also has a caution on it for pregnant or nursing mothers, children under 18, or if you are already taking any prescription medication or anti depressants.
May cause drowsiness.
I suggest talking with your health professional when taking or trying anything new.

After taking my first pill before bed, I can now understand the caution warnings about drowsiness.
I am going to be honest here, I like to feel drowsy before bed, it helps me sleep better instead of my mind wandering off to far away places.
When I woke up in the morning, I was no longer drowsy and I could start my day as any other day.
I continued this routine for a few days, and my sleeping habits improved dramatically.
I felt fine throughout the day, I didn't feel depressed or angry, but I usually don't anyways.
I did notice that my eating habits decreased a little, 2 pieces of pizza instead of 3.
 I did not feel like I had to drink the whole soda. I didn't even have a dessert craving. Good Stuff!

I don't have fibromyalgia, so I can't speak on that, but I did not get any headaches that I can think of, and I didn't feel sore after sitting at the computer desk for so long. Happy Happy Joy Joy!

With all of this said, I think the biggest plus of these pills for me is helping to regulate my sleeping patterns and help me with suppressing my appetite.
I am going to continue taking these and I may have to buy another bottle if my appetite continues to improve.

One last thing I want to share is that earlier in this blog post, (near the top) Chronos Pharma states their products are made from the best ingredients, by the most qualified professionals and at a state of the art FDA approved facility.
However, the bottle states "These statements have not been evaluated by The Food And Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."

The Birthday That Almost Didn't Happen

My Birthday Boy
I don't know about anyone else, but this
has been one of the longest weekends ever and I am not talking about the time change.
Seriously glad it is Sunday today.
Yes, I still have meals to make, chores, laundry and get the fam bam ready for Monday, but compared to Saturday, this will be a breeze.
Let me elaborate....
My son's birthday was November 1st.
Unlike other years, I decided to do something completely different this year by hosting his birthday party at McDonalds instead of dealing with the fuss of doing it at home.
I was super stoked and two weeks before his party, I had went down to our local McDonalds and put our deposit down to hold the party room. I had reserved it for November 1st, from 1:30-3:00 pm.
The way I looked at it was, this is going to save so much time and money and stress.
For a little under $100, you get a decorated party room, your own party host, or hostess, 10 Happy Meals, 10 Goodie bags, 10 Ice Cream Cones, Balloons, and a Birthday Cake.
The kids can be loud, play hard and you don't have to worry about a thing.
The kids and I showed up to McDonalds at 1pm (30mins until party time) to check in with manager and pay the balance of party costs.
As soon as we walked in, I noticed the party room was not decorated, and I went to the front counter to check in. I told the cashier I was here for the birthday party, she said she would get the manager. I watched her go in the back and speak to the manager. I saw Miss Managers face then turn white.
The cashier then came back and told me Miss Manager would be out in a few minutes.
I then knew something was wrong.
10 minutes go by, I'm still standing there waiting. I asked again to speak to the manager, I was then told she was getting everything ready. By this time, guests are starting to arrive and I am fuming, but still doing my best to maintain my composure.
It is now 1:30, most of my guests have arrived.
Finally at 1:40 Miss Manager comes out and tells me there was a few set backs, and they would be more then happy to give us an extra hour for the inconvenience.
I asked her what was the reason for the inconvenience?
I never got a straight answer. I asked her if they at least had the cake ready? I never got a straight answer. Now, remember I am hosting a party, I paid a deposit, my party room is not decorated, I have no host/hostess back helping me, I'm not sure if there is even a cake, I'm missing most of the party trying to discreetly handle this without my kids knowing anything is wrong, and you want to fix the situation by giving me an extra hour of free play time, that is basically already free.
Finally at about 2pm the manager brought out about 10 small plain balloons. She then asked if I would like to please come up to the counter and finish paying for the party?
"Party? What Party? "
As far as I knew, by this time, we were just a big group of people going to eat at McDonalds.
I had officially had it by now.
My so called party is already half over, and I missed half of that. I went to the counter and asked for my deposit back.
I was very surprised that they refunded my money without a hassle, but they knew they were in the wrong.
I then ordered 10 Happy Meals.
Luckily for me, we had also ordered an extra cake from our local grocery store just in case any of our guests had food allergies.
I took the Happy Meals back to the party, where the kids ate, sang Happy Birthday, had cake and opened presents.
We did all of that in the last 30 minutes.
My son and his friends did have a good time, even though it was pretty rushed in the end.
The cake that I brought from Raleys Supermarket was the absolutely best tasting cake I have ever had. I received so many compliments and it was decorated beautifully.
I was so relieved when it was over, it was a super stressful situation that left me with a terrible tension headache for the rest of the day.
I don't think we will be going back to that McDonalds for a long, long time...
Do you have any birthday party horror stories or even maybe a McDonalds horror story you would like to share?
