You might have noticed that my social media handles have been migrating away from Mama Smith’s and to Mama’s Geeky. That is because I have some pretty exciting news! Mama Smith’s will become Mama’s Geeky over the course of the next few days. Don’t worry, this won’t effect anything. I will still have the same great content, just a more focused name on what I am really all about.
The latest Smurfs movie is finally coming to theaters! My young daughters have been dying to see this movie since we first watched the trailer together.

Spring is almost here! We all know because we just lost that precious hour. If you have young kids like me, it could prove to be difficult to get yourself back in to the swing of things. I know we are always dragging for at least a week after we set the clocks forward. To help you (and myself) get through this time and to prepare for Spring, I have put together some items that will help you “reset” yourself in many different ways. From tracking money back guarantees, to booking vacations – all of these will help you hit refresh and reset on your life.
Growing kids can stay rear-facing longer with the Graco Extend2Fit Convertible car seat. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends rear-facing until at least 2 years of age. We did this with both our girls (actually a little bit longer). Now you can keep your child safely rear-facing, longer, without scrunching their little legs thanks to this new car seat from Graco! The Extend2Fit Technology provides an extendable base that gives your little one up to five additional inches as they grow. This gives their legs room to stretch while keeping them rear-facing up to 50 pounds and 45-inch. Trust me, I wish we had this available when our girls were a little younger. My 4 year old is a peanut and could likely safely rear face in this car seat with no problems at all!
I love taking photographs. It is something that I really enjoy doing in my free time. I also love being surrounded by photos of my beautiful family. In every house I have lived in, we have a wall dedicated to family photos. I like to select different size photos and different frames for them. But let’s me honest, frames can be a hassle. I hate having to open them up to put the pictures in and then close them again. Depending on the type of closure, it can really tear up my fingers – and sometime the closures break, essentially making the frame useless. I recently discovered Fracture and now there is no going back!

Softer and more absorbent than before*, with large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection and a money- back guarantee, Luvs provide features babies and parents need for less cost than premium brands.

On August 6, 2011, the United States Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) officially declared that August is National Breastfeeding Month. This breastfeeding campaign, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, was designed to encourage women in their breastfeeding journey by providing support and research about breastfeeding. For example, did you know that new research shows that babies who are exclusively breastfed for six months are less likely to develop ear infections, diarrhea and respiratory illnesses, and may be less likely to develop childhood obesity? That’s pretty cool, right?! In recognition of National Breastfeeding Month (NBM), I’m partnering with a few of my favorite blogs and brands to celebrate! We want to support you in your breastfeeding journey by providing you with some amazing products to help along the way!
