As a Dad, Do you REALLY Know the Law?

As a dad, it’s important to know the law of the land. Especially since it’s up to you to inform your children! But do you actually know what’s legal in the United States?

We sure thought we did, until we took the “Is it Legal” quiz! Too often we go through our everyday lives confident that we know what is legal and what is not. Most laws seem like common sense, but that’s not always the case… 

 In order to truly test whether or not you know the law of the land, Pala Casino created this quiz to unveil how much participants actually know about their nation’s laws. To top it off, Pala Online Casino is offering a 2 night giveaway for two in New Jeresey for a lucky winner who takes the quiz! Check it out let us know what you think!

1 In 5 Children Go To Bed Hungry. Let's Change That! #ShareAMeal

Disclosure: This post brought to you by Unilever.
Right here in America, there are over 16 million children struggling with hunger. Crazy high number right? That’s the population of Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago all combined together, which is just way to much. Hunger’s youngest victims are quite often invisible in the United States, but the reality is, hunger in America has no boundaries – rural, urban and suburban – and with 1 in 5 children not sure where their next meal is coming from, one of these children could be your own neighbor or even your child’s best friend.
The short documentary below, “Going to Bed Hungry: The Changing Face of Child Hunger,” by Patrick Creadon, award-winning filmmaker and #brightfuture grant, tells this story through the eyes of several American families. Families who are no different from any other, except they often struggle to put enough food on the table.
To help shed light on this issue and be a part of the solution, Unilever Project Sunlight is encouraging people to create a brighter future for children – by taking small steps to live sustainably, use less and share even more. This fall the initiative will be focusing on child hunger and will be encouraging all consumers to get involved and uncover the reasons they share they share a meal.
There are many ways you can help share a meal including donating to your local food bank, hosting a virtual food drive, plan a group meal and invite a family over you know could use a little help, pack an extra lunch and sent it to school with your child, volunteer at your local food bank and more!

Unilever Project Sunlight and Feeding America are working to rally as many people as possible to #ShareAMeal. Each time you do, you’ll be helping a family in need and helping us all take another step towards ending child hunger.

Joovy Room² Playard

Disclosure: The playard in the feature below was sent compliments of Joovy.

Bigger is better, or so they say and the Joovy Room² Playard is just that- bigger and better than all the rest.
With over 10 square feet of play space, an included super soft 100% cotton fitted sheet and large mesh windows your little (or big) baby will truly enjoy any time spent playing or sleeping in the Room². 
The Room²  weighs just over 30lbs and it very sturdy. The steel frame is super strong and can withstand my weight leaning on it as I reach down to the bottom to pick up or put down Caleb. The heavy duty padded floor boards provide a strong platform and a low center of gravity that makes the Room² super stable. All fabric, including the carry bag, is made of the highest quality 600D material and is incredibly durable.

Setting up the Room² is very simple. You have to snap each of the four side rails into place and then push down the bottom. That's it. 
Even though the Room² is large, it is really easy to move around because two of the four legs have wheels on them. However, if you need to move it from room to room, you have to collapse it. The included carry bag makes taking the Room² with you quick and easy.

Because the Room² has almost 50% more living space than traditional playards I am able to place Caleb's play mat inside it so he can play all day long with out worrying about his siblings stepping on him or the dog running over him.  When play time is over, we simply take the mat out!
Buy It: The Joovy Room² comes in four different colors and is available for purchase from our affiliate Amazon.com for $149.99.

Little Tikes by Diono Cozy Coupe Bouncer

Disclosure: The Cozy Coupe Bouncer was sent to me, free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

Baby gear is something that after four kids I have become an expert on. One of our baby must haves has always been a bouncer. Some where baby can comfortably lounge around that is up off the floor until they can sit up on their own. For Caleb, our bouncer of choice has been the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Bouncer by Diono.
The Cozy Coupe Bouncer is lightweight (only 3.96lbs) and portable which makes it perfect for everyday use. It vibrates and plays music as well as soothing nature sounds, depending on babies mood.
The fun toy bar has a small mirror, two plush toys and a cool ring to grab on to and is removable.
My favorite feature of this bouncer is the unique mesh recline. With a simple zipper zip, the back of the bouncer reclines an extra few inches allowing baby to sleep or lounge in a more reclined position.
The bouncer also features an adjustable 3-point harness to keep baby safe and secure, as well as none slip grips on the base. The bouncer is designed for use from birth until your baby can sit up unassisted.

Buy It: You can purchase the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Bouncer from Amazon.com.
