Story Time Felts

How fun! ¬†Of course when I receive products to review, all three of my children come running when they hear the mailman or UPS/FedEx man coming to the door. ¬†They are anxious to see what they get to play with. ¬†This time it was a wonderful little package that contained a felt play set. ¬†This would be Story Time Felts, “Say Good Night” play set. ¬†In the set, you get a brochure that shares two story ideas on how you and your child can play and read together. ¬†It is a wonderful interactive game to play making reading so much more fun. ¬†It will help your child to use his/her imagination to expand on their individual creativity. ¬†My little girl played with the set without me reading the story to her and she was talking and moving the felt Grandma and little boy around the mat. ¬†You can also roll the mat up and wrap a rubber band around it and take it with you on the road or on the plane. ¬†It is compact enough that you can easily stick it in a diaper bag or purse.

February Monthly Meal Calendar

Sorry for the delay in getting this posted. ¬†I tried to do it another way though my community calendar but that took too much time in writing and typing it all out.Some of you have asked how I do my meal menu’s and this is how it is. ¬†I have been averaging about 250.00 per month on groceries to feed my family of 5, plus one cat.

I will post some of the recipes for the meals I have, but some you might already have your own for, or may want to check out online for some that will fit your likes.  If there is one that you see that you are interested in and would like me to post, please email me at support at momswithaview.com.
