I have moved the Supermom blog here.
This photo of my goofy 8, 10, and 5 year olds was taken earlier this summer. Enjoy!
Omega fatty acids are extremely important to our health, but most of us aren’t getting anywhere near enough of them in our everyday diets.I’ve known about Omega fatty acids for a long time and have taken them in the past, but usually found that the capsules smelled very fishy, and had the unfortunately side effect of producing fishy burps hours after taking them. Yukk!
So I was so thrilled to find Omega Balance 3-6-9 because it’s got all the good stuff we need, and none of the bad stuff that makes us not want to take it!
Omega Balance contains a blend of borage, organic flax seeds, and fish oils. This unique combination provides an excellent source for these extremely important fatty acids!
You can read more about it here.Â Good stuff! (and with 180 capsules per bottle, it lasts a good, long time!Â I like that.Â Don’t you?)
A lot of moms are needing a fresh burst of inspiration these days, and I’ve got just the thing! Check out this page with great ideas for:

Your company is great!Â You offer what most people lack……..service!
Service is HUGE to me.Â I am always so disappointed when I shop somewhere and it is apparent that my purchases there mean nothing.Â My goal is to get orders out the same day when possible, and the next day without exception.Â I love to pack up your orders and get them on their way to you speedily.Â Â I think of how delighted you will be when the package arrives and you say, “Wow!Â That was fast!”Â
Thanks for your support of my little home business!
We have an Easy Set pool at our house. It’s a pretty big one, and we have floatation swim suits for our three youngest boys to wear, although we keep the pool shallow enough that all of them can walk around in it and still have their heads above water. Last year when I bought the suits the baby was one and the better quality suits did not come in his size, so I got a cheaper one, which he had continued to wear this year.
The other day the kids were playing in the pool while my husband and I sat on the deck watching them and chatting. Our youngest, who is now 2, lost his footing in the pool and very quickly was floating face down in the water. Fortunately my husband saw it right away and got to him within just a few seconds, so everything turned out ok.
The problem is that this suit was not designed to flip a child over onto their back if they needed to rely on the floatation! Our baby was helpless, face down in the water. He would have actually been safer with no suit on at all, since he would have been able to stand to his feet after losing his footing.
It only takes a very few moments for a little one to drown. I am so thankful we were right there with our eyes on the pool happenings.
We tossed out that suit and today I went and bought him one of the better ones, that are designed to keep a kid floating on their backs.Â Here is the difference between the two suits:
The kind that flips a child onto their back has a float in the front of the suit that is longer than the one in the back.
The kind of suit that put my baby into the pool face first is a kind that is designed for children who need a floatie while learning to swim.Â The floats are all around the suit and are the same size all the way around.
Just thought someone else might appreciate the reminder. Go check and see if your little one’s floatie suits will flip them to their backs in their moment of need.
I thought it might be fun to get a Supermom’s Health and Wellness group going on Facebook.Â We have a discussion board for sharing tips and recipes, so I think this could be very fun!Â Just go to Facebook.com and then do a search for Supermom’s Health and Wellness.Â Click to join!Â And tell your friends–the more, the merrier!
I am considering adding two cool new products to the store, but wanted to get some feedback from you to see if these would even fill a need.
The first item is glass baby bottles with a cool silicone sleeve. Many parents are becoming increasingly concerned about the chemicals in plastic baby bottles, particularly when warming them or having warm milk in them. Glass bottles are great for the safety, but can be too hot to hold, slippery, and of course there is the concern about breakage.
These cool silicone sleeves go over the bottle, so they protect little hands (or yours!) from the heat of warm milk and slippage, and still allow you to see the measurement markers.
These come in both 4 and 8 ounce bottles, and would be priced at $10 and $12 respectively.
The other item I am considering adding to the store is this:
These are knee pads for your little crawlers! They can slide right over bare legs or pants, and provide a silicone cushion at the knees for your little tyke as they explore their world. I think these are really cute and smart, and wish there had been something like this back when I had crawling babies!
These would be priced at $17.95 for a pair.
What do you think? Any interest?
I discovered this Cranberry Apple Zinger tea back in the winter in a fruit tea sampler.Â I loved this particular tea, but had a really hard time finding a box of just this kind.Â Eventually I did, but had to buy it in bulk, so now I can share the fun with you guys!
Although I loved this tea in the winter, I’m really enjoying it this summer.Â I make it into a cold sweet tea, which is a flavorful beverage–with zero calories!Â It’s super easy to make:
I use my 10-cup coffee maker for this.Â In the filter basket I put 3 tea bags.Â Then fill the water reservoir all the way full, and brew.Â After it’s done, let it cool.Â (Make it at night and let it cool overnight)
