Thank you!

Thank you all so much for your support during this domain issue.

I wanted to announce that after this domain issue and taking the weekend to discuss this with Dave, I have decided to end Mom Loves Today. I don't want to have to fight someone for my brand and I cannot afford to do so. But I am not giving up. Instead I am going to merge Mom Loves Today and From Son Up To Son Down, into a brand new site, One Big 'Pyle' of Love. I love plays on words, and with Pyle being our last name, and the blog being about family, Dave and I thought it was the perfect name. We both thought it would benefit you, our readers to have all the parent/child stuff in one place again. I know there have been many changes happening these last months and really hope this is the last change for the better for quite some time!

One Big Pyle of Love will be located at the same address as From Son Up To Son Down or you can get to it from my brand new domain address The new design should be up before January.

Posts about Elijah, reviews, giveaways, coupon codes, and all the fun stuff you have come to love on both sites will now be all in one place for you. Eventually my contributors will be merging over too and jumping in from time to time.

Again I want to thank you SO much for your support during this merger. I have some of the best fans, readers, and sponsors ever!

If you need to contact me during this transition I ask that you email me at ejsmomej at gmail and put the blog name you are contacting about as part of the subject while I get everything worked out and organized.

Again, thank you so much for your love and from here on out please visit for all my parent/child posts and remember for all my personal craziness!

Have a great Tuesday!

If you somehow managed to still find you're way here. Thank you. I am trying to redirect as many links as quickly as possible.

As you may have noticed my domain is no longer mine. That's what happens when domain companies don't get back to you after they don't send you a renewal notice and you apparently have a hot domain name. GONE in less than 30 minutes of being canceled. I am SO MAD at godaddy right now, I could SPIT fire.

If for some reason you are the person that bought my domain and you find your way here. email me. I have some words for you.

If you are a sponsor I am SO SORRY. I will make this up to you! Promise! Please send me an email at momlovesreviews at gmail at your earliest convenience so we can discuss what works for you.

For everybody else. I will be purchasing a new domain asap. This site and FSUTSD will probably become one. I was contemplating a change anyway.

going to go cry now.

UnitedHealthCare StudentResource Insurance

When choosing the right health care for your children there is a lot to consider. Parents have many questions about coverage and want to make sure they are getting the best care possible for their children. Does it cover injury, sickness, pre-existing conditions? Is there time/day/month limits to service? Am I going to call a representative to ask these questions only to hang up even more confused?

UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company has heard you questions. Dedicated to student insurance for over 40 years, United Healthcare has a insurance program just for your children, the UnitedHealthcare StudentResource (UHCSR). Focusing on children ages 5 to 18 (4 to 18 in Texas), this program has a better understanding of unique needs of this age group. Designed to be more affordable then traditional insurance plans for your children, it is currently $588 per policy year or $98 every two months. That is a small amount of money for a big peace of mind that your child is covered! UHCSR program offers your child protection and coverage for injury and sickness 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You don't have to worry about your child having insurance through your job. If you already have it, UHCSR could also be used as a secondary insurance plan. Available through many participating school districts and participating private schools. Nationally available through schools that belong to the Association of Christian Schools International.

I was happy to see that the school my son Elijah will be attending currently participates. We have UnitedHealthcare now and think that this plan would be good for us when Elijah reaches school age.

Christmas gifts for toddlers - PlaySkool Explore N'Grow Busy Ball Popper

Looking for a toy idea for your toddler this Christmas?
The Playskool Explore N' Grow Busy Ball Popper is one I highly recommend.

Designed for ages 9 months and up, it won't take long for your little one to figure out how this toy works. Push the button, put the balls on the track, the balls roll around the track, down in and then POP out the top! Elijah was so intrigued with how the toy worked, he had to study each part first. We showed him how to do it a few times, but after that he knew exactly how to put the balls in and push the button.

It comes with 5 fun colored balls and they really pop! It is designed so that some pop over the top for your child to chase. Elijah thinks that's really silly and will run right after them and put them right back in. Or he will play with the balls by themselves. They are the perfect size for him to hold, carry while crawling or walking, kick or roll. And he loves to do it all!

The Explore N' Grow Ball Popper also plays 8 fun songs. Elijah pushes the button just to hear the songs. He loves to dance to them. The only downside to this toy is that the fan for the ball popper is really loud, which in turn makes the music have to be louder. So this is not a toy you want playing while trying to talk or watch television in the same room.

The Explore N' Grow Busy Ball Popper is played with every day since we gave it to him and will be one of Elijah's favorites for quite some time I'm sure!

I give this toy 8 out of 10 hearts.
