5 Fun Ways To Announce Your Baby’s Gender at Your Baby Shower

Throwing a gender reveal party is such a fun way to include friends & family in the excitement of the pregnancy. There are several fun ways to break the news, & we have come up with five different options for you that your guests are sure to love. Make sure to start with the right gender reveal baby shower invitations to start the party off on the right foot.


When throwing the baby shower, if you do not know the baby’s gender, have the parents write the sex of the baby on a piece of paper. Then take an empty box to the party store & hand them the paper with the baby’s gender on it. Have them fill the box with either pink or blue balloons. Make sure they seal the box. Then at the party, you can have the soon to be mother open the box to reveal a floating mass of either pink of blue balloons.


If you are looking for a little less expensive option instead of filling a big box full of balloons you can do the same thing but with confetti. Still, hand the party store employee a paper with the gender of the baby & then have them fill one black balloon or very dark colored balloon with either pink or blue confetti. Then at the party have the mother to be pop the balloon to reveal the gender.


Doing a gender reveal with paint will take a little bit of planning to pull off. You will need to paint your partner’s hands in either blue or pink paint. Then take two pictures. The first is with your partner’s hands on the stomach of the mommy to be. The second picture will be with the hands removed revealing the hand prints in either pink or blue paint. Then at the baby shower have the 1st photo displayed next to the second photo covered.

♥Silly String

Using silly string to reveal your baby’s gender can be a ton of fun. Cover each can with kraft paper & remove the lids. Then give everyone a countdown. Then when the fun begins, there will be a flurry of pink or blue string flying through the air. Speaking from experience try & do this outside that much silly string indoors can cause a nightmare for cleanup.


Who doesn’t love cupcakes? You won’t find a better way to let the secret out of what you are having than to take cupcakes & then fill the centers with either the pink or blue frosting. This way your guests not only get to see what the gender of the baby is but they get to enjoy a delicious cupcake at the same time.

These are just a few ideas of ways you can reveal the gender at the baby shower, but there are countless other ways. No matter what you decide, you can customize baby shower invitations to fit your party perfectly. So best of luck on your baby shower planning! 

Changing Lives Community

MOMS, Meet Sonia Avila, Chief Executive Officer for Changing Lives Community! In her own words:

I am writing to introduce you to a very special organization that has the potential to completely transform the meaning of the word ‘community’ as we know it today. Its name is Changing Lives Community. Our goal is to provide support, treatment, education and life skills to vulnerable individuals, families, and veterans who are experiencing social displacement as a result of situations that have led to homelessness, substance abuse, PTSD or other soul-crushing conditions. We plan to create the framework for a better future by offering resources to help them attain and maintain a life of sustainable self-sufficiency.

Our current objective is to build a self-sustainable, eco-focused community that will offer a resident capacity for 2.000 people along with a communal dining hall and professional kitchen, a veteran’s center, a hospital, a school campus, a recreational center, an environmental center, and various social and working hubs that range from manufacturing to agricultural and farming complexes.

Powered by 100 percent clean, renewable energy, we are confident that our community will set a new benchmark for self-sufficient living in a society that has become too reliant on overburdened educational, medical, social and welfare systems. Similar models have been successfully adopted in Italy, where the self-sustaining San Patrignano community has provided excellent support to over 25,000 people for over 35 years without government funding.

We have received an overwhelming response of public interest and plan to start formal press releases in April 2016. Changing Lives has already received approval for a $100 million construction loan, but we must now provide a detailed development plan, a solid corporate structure and a financial risk policy for the loan (insurance). Our community will be built on the West Coast of the United States, and we are very excited to have made so much progress in only two years.

We will place a special emphasis on veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). There are almost 40 million veterans now living in the United States. These brave and selfless men and women have been willing to risk their lives for us! Unfortunately, after their service, many veterans find it difficult to assimilate back into society. Many suffer with mental health issues such as PTSD and/or traumatic brain injuries. They often have trouble maintaining relationships and finding employment. Some are challenged by substance abuse along with their visible (and invisible) disabilities, and far too many are homeless. After the intensity of military life, there is often a profound sense of ‘disconnect’ leading to despair and possible suicide.

I am currently looking for collaborators to help Changing Lives develop our programs, forge community coalitions, secure funding and promote our message on a national scale. This type of help will be critical to our success, and I hope that you will consider working with us in some capacity even if it is simply including our contact information in your databases for further reference. We do not intend to use any government support for this project, and hope that the services we provide will lead to eventual tax relief for USA citizens. Please visit https://changinglivescommunityusa.com & https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/961576158/changing-lives-community

Warm regards,

TissuGlu: Please & Thank You!

Thanks to TissuGlu® for sharing this medical advancement and the Mom It Forward Influencer Network sponsorship of mamachallenge.com.

MOMS, the season for a new YOU has sprung. Summer clothes are coming & so are all the FUN activities that you love. Now is the time to learn about the TissuGlu® breakthrough! Motherstucker has BEEN THERE, DONE THAT – trust me – post surgery drains are a drag & have no place in your plans this summer.

Exactly 8 years ago this weekend I was at home recovering from breast augmentation surgery (complete with a drain underneath each armpit). Each day the pain from the surgery incisions became less noticeable while the discomfort from the drains drastically increased. Drain frustration levels also increased daily — The point of having a cosmetic procedure is to look better — 2 frankensteinish drains protruding from each armpit was NOT the look I was going for!

Based entirely on this experience, I’ve made a promise to myself. Any elective surgery decisions I make in the future will be drain free. No exceptions! That’s why I’m thrilled to share about TissuGlu! Now you can take the #DrainFreeTummyTuck avenue! 

TissuGlu Surgical Adhesive is the first of its kind, elevating the tummy tuck experience like never before to give you the advantage of a drain-free tummy tuck. Drains are patients’ #1 tummy tuck complaint. Most patients find drains to be uncomfortable & cumbersome during recovery. They can be awkward to hide under clothing & require maintenance (emptying & measuring fluid). Drains may cause additional scarring & removal can sometimes be painful (95% of patients prefer a drain-free procedure). My drain removal was the worst part of my entire procedure as they were in place for an entire week.

Here is what is NEW! TissuGlu is precisely applied with a special applicator. It forms a strong bond between tissue layers, reducing spaces where fluid may collect. TissuGlu allows your body to resorb fluid as part of the healing process so you can recover naturally, without drains.

Important TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive Safety Information:


TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive is indicated for the approximation of tissue layers where subcutaneous dead space exists between the tissue planes in abdominoplasty.


Do not use in patients with known or suspected allergies to urethane-based or isocyanate-containing products.


  • Do not use TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive in patients who have had prior exposure to TissuGlu®. Immunological response associated with repeat TissuGlu® exposure has not been studied.
  • The effectiveness for the treatment of patients with BMI > 28 has not been established. Higher BMI patients have a propensity for fluid accumulation and may have an increased risk of seroma formation.
  • Effectiveness was not observed in weight loss patients undergoing abdominoplasty. Weight loss patients have a propensity for fluid accumulation and may have an increased risk of seroma formation and


TissuGlu® may reduce the need for drains after surgery. By using TissuGlu® instead of drains, you may:

  • Return to normal activities more quickly
  • Experience less discomfort and pain than when drains are used
  • Have fewer invasive treatments for fluid management. The results showed that 73% of TissuGlu® patients had no treatments after surgery. However, some patients did require additional invasive treatments including reinsertion of drains.


Clinical studies were performed using TissuGlu®. There were no increased safety risks with the use of TissuGlu® than when drains were used. Potential complications associated with the use of the device and the tummy tuck procedures include seroma (fluid) formation. These complications may require treatments such as drain placement and/or fluid removal by needle, which may be performed in the operating room. Additional potential complications include wound healing issues, rash/redness, surgical site or incision infection, scarring, hematoma (bruise or swelling), incision separation, and immunological reaction.

Safety Information:

For full safety information please visit http://tissuglu.com, contact your doctor, or call Cohera Customer Support at 1-800-641-7458.


TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive is currently approved for sale in the United States for the approximation of tissue layers where subcutaneous dead space exists between the tissue planes in abdominoplasty. TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive received European CE Mark in 2011, where it is approved for large flap surgical procedures such as abdominoplasty. TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive is not approved for sale in any other region. Any questions related to the indication for use should be directed to your Cohera Medical Account Manager or to Cohera Medical Corporate Clinical Affairs. Refer to the complete TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive Directions for Use for prescribing and usage information.

Electromagnate: Secret Weapon to Pull Your Kids Back to the Living Room

In Electromagnate two teams (of 1 to 3 players per side) compete to close circuits on the game board. Players traverse grid nodes & place component cards onto grid lines. Once you close a circuit you begin to draw power from the enclosed area. Acquired power can be used to purchase character upgrades, which increase player abilities (or technology can be purchased, to help your play or hamper your opponents). Finally, megaliths can be purchased/built, to increase the power gained from areas.

Combat can be enacted to battle your opponent for control of grid nodes or grid lines. Inserted into the combat/poker deck are random event cards, which bring elements of chance to the game. The unique game board, innovative game mechanic & various game systems can be turned on, off or tweaked. The fun of custom gaming, which thrills millions online, becomes up close & personal on the table top.

Send a Meaningful Message to Young Children

What to gift nowadays to young children (ages 10 months to 6 years)? It seems easy, but not that easy.

-“I don’t know which one to pick. Too many choices.”

-“Many toys are similar. Just grab whatever you run into.”

You hear these all the time. This topic provokes deep thoughts. That’s why retailer Ten Octaves carefully selected toys & gifts that meet their criteria to be good choices for young children. Their products are very unique & are picked because of outstanding design, eco-friendliness, handmade products, organic materials &/or social responsibilities. Most of them are award winners. Some have upwards of 16 awards under their belts. Many collections are available. Dolls, puppets, rockers, balance bike, building toys, accessories even animal wall décor. Most of them are not found in your nearby toy/gift stores. Check out at TenOctaves.com, you will be surprised! Want unique, high-end toys & gifts? Look no further.

Kids are like sponges. When they get a gift, they are getting a message. Just like every word heard by infants. They will understand in their own way, on their own terms & on their own pace. It’s up to parents to send a meaningful one starting from a young age. 😉

Hot Button: iRNinja

MOMS, Control your TV with a simple press of a button – Join Motherstucker & BACK this iRNinja Kickstarter project to get YOURS! 

Make TV simple again! This wireless 4 button keypad & infrared (IR) learning remote base allows you to control your TV by pressing a button on the wall 😉 The iRNinja is a wireless 4 button keypad that controls your entertainment system.  It has two components:  The keypad that mounts on the wall & a base unit that sits near your TV & equipment. The base unit is a learning remote with advanced macro capabilities.  Use your existing remotes to program a series of commands or activities for each of the 4 buttons on the keypad.  You can program a single command such as channel up or channel down or a series of commands, such as turning your TV, A/V receiver, & satellite box ON, switching inputs on your TV & tuning to a particular channel.  We’ve added a one second delay in between each IR command sent.  This allows you to add the extra time needed to wait for your TV to power up before sending commands such as switching to a particular input. The iRNinja uses a 38KHz  Infrared Sensor, which works on most TVs, audio receivers, DirecTV satellite boxes, & many cable boxes.  (Note, some cable boxes & audio equipment use a higher frequency which will not work on the iRNinja at this time.) The keypad is elegant looking, with four large buttons that can be labeled using any label maker. The keypad uses a standard 9volt battery that has an estimated 10 year life with average usage!

Mother’s Day 2017: Gift Yourself “Rent the Runway”

For the past 2 months I’ve been Renting the Runway UNLIMITED. This means I get 3 Rent the Runway garments on rotation & my recurring dry cleaning errand has been completely eliminated because dry cleaning is included in my unlimited subscription 😉 Shipping is FREE (both ways) & I can cancel anytime.

Rent The Runway is a clothing rental service the best dressed MOMS swear by. It’s especially great when you need a knockout dress for a social occasion (see pics below!). Just in time for Mother’s Day 2017, Rent the Runway has 3 ways to rent:

Pay As You Rent & WOW on the biggest nights of the year. Get 4 or 8 day designer rentals for a fraction of the retail price.

StylePass Subscription. Want a new look for every event on your calendar?  Get flat-rate, 4-day rentals: any dress, any time, no exclusions.

Unlimited Subscription. Want something new to wear for work, weekends & everything in between? Get 3 designer pieces when YOU want them!

I’ve rented 10 garments over 2 months using the Unlimited RTR option. That works out to approx 5 items per month. I pay $139 per month for the RTR Unlimited subscription ($27.80 per item so far for you math junkies). Looking ahead, I plan to try out the casual clothing/handbags/jewelry/active wear options RTR has to offer, which will allow me to turn over items faster! The exact number of outfits you can rent depends on how quickly you can drop off your return & choose your next order. MotherStucker’s gift to you – Here’s $30 off for first time customers!

My biggest concern before trying RTR was the wear & tear factor. I am HARD on my clothes & didn’t want to be stuck paying full price for a stained/damaged designer garment. So far, this is a NON issue!

♥Motherstucker may or may not have spilled red wine on a RTR evening gown.

♥Motherstucker may or may not have let the hem out of a RTR jumpsuit for extra length.

♥Motherstucker may or may not have used pink thread to repair a loose eye hook on a red RTR  garment.

Knock on wood! If RTR puts up with Motherstucker’s shenanigans, YOU should be good to go! Note: Not all RTR dresses are available to rent under Unlimited. While this ruffled my feathers at first — (it ISN’T super clear in the unlimited sign up process) — throughout the experience I’ve made peace with the policy because of the LARGE Unlimited selection.In the photo above, Motherstucker is wearing the red pebbled crepe jumpsuit by Tori Burch ($495 retail or $45 RTR rental). This photo of the Mrs. Kentucky America Queens Club (Louisville, Ky – Photo Cred: http://catherine-andrew.com) celebrates the Ruby Anniversary/40th Anniversary of Mrs. America! I have an inkling I’m not the only gal wearing RTR <3

MotherStucker wore this Shoshanna Jasmine Skirt ($395 retail or $75 RTR rental) out & about in the Nashville, TN Gulch!

Believe it or not, this Solace London printed laryn gown ($670 retail or $100 RTR rental) arrived BRAND NEW with retail tag attached! Hubby & I attended the Ace & T.J.’s 20th Anniversary 2nd Chance Prom, Charlotte NC to benefit Grin Kids. The night was as fun (wild!) as the print/color of this dress!

RTR Unlimited is the gift that keeps on giving! Gift yourself this Mother’s Day!
