This Disney photo book post was created in partnership with Snapfish. All opinions are my own.

I take a ton of pictures every month.  Heck, I take a ton of pictures every week.  With each click, I’m always thankful that digital cameras are available for home use because I would be spending a fortune having them all developed!

I received a prize pack in order to create back to school lunchbox ideas. All thoughts and words are my own.

Kids around the country are heading back to school, triggering the question of “what can I pack for lunch?”  Of course there’s the old stand-by, the sandwich.  It’s a classic for a reason: portable, easy to eat, easy to customize.

Back to School Lunchbox Ideas with an Easy Quesadilla Recipe

But why not send them back this year with something new?  Recently I was challenged by the folks at Azteca to come up with easy back to school lunchbox ideas using their tortillas.  While there are a number of great things I already make that use tortillas, I had to really think about what would be a good lunchbox fit.

Smoobee No Cry Brush

Detangling brush by Smoobee

Before Bubbles turned one she loved bath time.  Toys, splashing – what’s not to love?  But as she got older and her hair grew longer she started to like bath time less and less.  She did not enjoy the process of washing her hair, but she really did not like what came after – brushing.  Bath time quickly turned into me trying to wrestle her into the tub long enough to wash her and her hair, while trying to keep her from clawing her way out.  Fun, right?

At ABC Kids earlier this year, however, I learned about a new product called the Smoobee.  It claimed to be a “magic, No Cry Brush”.  I’m a bit of a skeptic – especially when items call themselves magic – and thought the brush was probably for polite, well-mannered children that loved to sit like Rapunzel and have her hair brushed.  During every hair wash adventure, though, it kept popping into my head.  I wondered if the claims were true and decided the only way to know for sure was to try it.
