I miss the good old days. The days of simple clean-ups and having only three dishes to clean at the end of a long day, not a sink-full.

Of course, I am talking about the time before kids. The time I didn’t stop to appreciate often enough. I really should have! Now I have a to-do list a mile long that contains only things that need to be cleaned. The absolute worst of these messes being related to food.

It never ends. If you are a fellow parent you know what I’m talking about, hang in there.

Cleanups made easy: Bounty with Dawn


One of my number one new-parent tips is to try and avoid having a large list of things to clean. This is why I think paper towels are one of the best inventions ever. I know for a fact that I save a ton of time on laundry. It’s amazing how many cleaning rags and towels I can go through in just a few days.

Bounty with Dawn is just about revolutionary when it comes to parenting. Especially if your kids are a messy bunch like mine. They are, aren’t they? I knew it!

What I love about Bounty with Dawn

I have always loved paper towels. I’ve loved that they are disposable, convenient, and make my life easier with all of my children’s wonderfully sticky messes.


I’ll admit something: I have not always been a Bounty person. I do believe that I am finally ready to make the switch, though. It really is that great.

Bounty with Dawn is a specially designed 2-in-1 product that combines an ultra-durable Bounty paper towel with the grease-fighting power of Dawn dish soap (And seriously, who doesn’t love Dawn??). When activated by water, Bounty with Dawn helps you clean up your most disastrous messes…like the one I cleaned up off of the kitchen floor today. I wish I could buy these paper towels wholesale.

It even can be rinsed out and reused–which is something I think is fabulous about Bounty owels.

You can see the infused Dawn, and the textured feel makes scrubbing less of a chore and more of a passing task.

The tiny, messy, Bounty with Dawn Kitchen

My favorite part about my Bounty with Dawn experience is the little kitchen I received. It is a gorgeous kitchen, but is extremely realistic, as in it has a little mess going on.

It was packed full of goodies (pictured above), a roll of paper towels, tons of great information, and my number one favorite thing: the tiny paper towels.

It really isn’t anything special, just really really cute.

Choco-Cinna Waffle Recipe

Mornings in my house are pretty routine. My kids have their favorite breakfasts, and one of them just happens to be waffles.

And syrup.

When my kids eat their waffles, I usually try my best to offer them a topping other than syrup. Unfortunately for me it is their favorite.

I’ve discovered that letting them dip their waffles in syrup causes less mess, but it doesn’t mean that it is perfect. The syrup trails are marvelous. They almost look like art, but that doesn’t mean they get to stay.

The ease of these paper towels is incredible and offers the cleaning power of soap that a wet paper towel simply cannot provide.
