So we had lunch with my Big Guy today!

He was so excited to see me and Little Sister!

The cafeteria is always loud and noisy, but we sat at his table with him while he ate his lunch.
I spoke with the Counselor and she allowed me to get his award certificate and take it back to the classroom with him. He feels more comfortable here and I was able to snap a quick photo before I had to leave!

I am so proud of him, each day he amazes me more and more!

I am so proud of My Big Guy

He is doing great at Therapy and is enjoying School as well!

I received a note home the other day from school-

My Big Guy has been chosen to be the Spicer Super Scholar for the 6 weeks in his classroom!

Apparently this is a big honor and he gets an award!

So I was invited to have lunch with him tomorrow (Thursday) and of course I have Happily accepted!

I will try to take picture's-I'm not sure how the whole thing will go-so we will see.

He is such a Happy and Handsome Big Guy and I'm so very Proud of Him!

Hope you all are having a happy Hump Day!
Don't forget-the Giveaway ends tomorrow!

So this time of year we should be getting snow right? Nope, not in Texas lol. It is raining cats and dogs here. I took my Big Guy to school this morning and several streets had high water, but the local creek was flooded very high.

Boo Rad Lee Clothing Review

Boo Rad Lee Clothing Review

About The Company:
Boo Rad Lee Clothing is a family-owned clothing company based in Nashville, TN.
They offer the funniest, most modern & cutest clothing available for your baby or young child. This is stuff you & your mom can share a laugh about while still appealing to every dad's sick sense of humor.
I actually came across this clothing line from another blog I follow, Thrifty Nifty Mommy.
So I browsed the website and after seeing several items that caught my eye, I decided to contact them through email. I received a quick response and they were willing to work with me and send me a shirt of my choice to review!

What We Thought:
When the shirt of my choice first arrived, I took it out of the packaging and I immediately noticed how soft it was. It is 100% cotton, but it was really really soft! I loved the bright colors as well and I knew my Princess would too!
The shirt is super Cute, I mean seriously?! CU TE ! :) So I put the CU TE shirt on my Princess and she went to work modeling it for me!
I love the Fit of the shirt on her! Everything was perfect!

Thank You Boo Rad Lee Clothing!

Zippity Doo's Product Review & Giveaway

Zippity Doo's

Zippity Doo’s™ children’s hair care products, mild enough
for daily use, provide health benefits to the
hair and scalp while helping prevent lice infestation.

Included In Set:
Shampoo, Conditioner, Styling Gel, Leave-In Detangler & Shield Spray

What We Thought:
I was very pleased with Zippity Doo's products overall!
They all are available to use daily and they repel lice which is great, since my Big Guy attends Elementary School, he encounters several children/teachers & we don't ever want to encounter head lice!
First off, what caught my eye as soon as I was reading the label, was the natural ingredients! They are made with ingredients like rosemary, chamomile, tea tree, lemongrass, wild cherry bark and more. 
Zippity Doo products are all free of parabens, sulfates and are not tested on animals! Yay!
They are also Pediatrician approved, which puts a Smile on this Mommy's face!
Since our Big Guy is Autistic, we try to keep the colors & false ingredients down to a minimum-like all natural toothpaste, etc. So I was so excited to use the Shampoo & Conditioner on him! I loved the smell as well! They went on smoothly and rinsed off with ease! The Styling Gel worked great & dried quick!Isn't he handsome! Lol :)

So after my Big Guy had a bath & used the Shampoo & Conditioner we towel dried his hair and sprayed in the Shield Spray. We were not able to use the Leave-In Detangler on him, his hair is not long enough for it just yet but after a couple more weeks of no hair cut, trust me, we will need it!

Where To Buy:

You can purchase Zippity Doo's products online at Zippity Doo' or They are sold at stores such as Target, Walgreens, CVS & more.

Win It!

Zippity Doo's is being very generous and is giving away the above set to one lucky reader! Just fill out the Rafflecopter below! Good luck!
