Sleeve Stars Premium Knee Sleeve review


I received a Sleeve Stars Premium Knee Sleeve to review. I am a bigger woman, so I got the size large, the largest size they have available. It was a snug fit, but I didn't think it was too bad. After a little while it did start digging in some and then started rolling up on my leg. I was only able to wear it about an hour at a time before it would get uncomfortable. I feel if it ft a bit better the product would work wonders. It is an amazing product and designed great, just not made for heavier set people.

If you would like to check it out please visit here.
I have knee problems from years of playing basketball and this does help for the time I am able to use it. It is great for those who have knee problems but still want and or need too stay active.


Things to Do in The Cincinnati Area This Summer

If you are local to Cincinnati or will be traveling the area this summer here are some things to check out.


  1. Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens- This is a must do for the area. Lots of animals to see, including the famous hippo Fiona. The new gorilla world is amazing to see as well. There are lots of events over the summer to check out. If bought online tickets start at $17 for adults and $12 for kids. Parking is $10. Information about special events, special admission days, types of tickets and more can be found at http://cincinnatizoo.org.
  2. Newport Aquarium- If you love aquariums you have to visit this one. Octopi, Stingrays, Alligators, Penguins, Sharks and more. There is so much to see and do at Newport Aquarium. Tickets are $17.99 for kids and $24.99 for adults. For more information and to purchase tickets visit here.
  3. Kings Island- There is fun for everyone at Kings Island. The snoopy kids area has rides for kids of all ages. There are plenty of thrill rides and roller coasters for the adults and enthusiasts. Some of the roller coasters are marked as the best in the world!! There is even Soak City, the waterpark right at Kings Island, great for cooling off on a hot day. You can get daily tickets for as low as $44.99. Details and more information on the park can be found at visitkingsisland.com.
  4. Coney Island/Sunlight Pool- Another big summer favorite. Coney Island has all the rides and then hop on over to Sunlight pool to cool off. One reason this is a big favorite is unless you are going to ride or go in the pool you don't have to pay. This is great for parents who don't do rides, but want to take their kids to enjoy the rides without having to dish out a ton of money to do nothing. Tickets can be bought just for the pool, just for the rides, or both and they offer evening discounts for after 4pm. To buy your tickets or to check out the options and more visit coneyislandpark.com.
  5. Dart Rush- This is a new one we are really looking forward to checking out. Everyone likes laser tag. Well this uses Nerf Guns and have dart wars in a dart arena!! Doesn't that sound fun? It is located at Newport on the Levee and designed for ages 6 and up. You can bring your own blaster, or rent for them for an additional fee. The cost to play is $12/1 hour, $17/1.5 hours, and $22/2 hours. The rental costs are anywhere from $2-12 depending on the tier level of the blaster you choose. For more information visit dartrush.com.

Like most girls their age my girls are in love with the surprise balls, especially the LOL surprise dolls. We love getting them and making youtube videos of their opening. Our favorite can be found here. Do your girls love the lol surprise dolls?






What kid doesn't like play-doh? There are so many different play-doh sets available now they can have endless hours of fun making everything!!



My boys recently started daycare and they have one of these at daycare and they LOVE it. It allows so much free-play with cars, animals, dolls and more. It is truly amazing and I think i might get one for home.





Anything to do with crafts is a big hit in our house. Paper, markers, crayons, coloring books, paint, craft kits and so much more. We love doing crafts for different holidays. Some of our crafts can be seen here



Paw Patrol is a must in the house. We have the Paw patroller and rescue vehicles and even a paw patrol bubble maker. Silas is a big fan and the other kids enjoy it too.


All the kids in the huse LOVE PJ Masks. We have a golf set, figures, a tablet thing that reads them PJ masks books. They even love watching it. Another big hit.

Big Update on the Kids

Ok so have had some time to sit and think and reflect on yesterday. i know some have it way worse but for us this is hard. My oldest son who is 5.5 had a psychological evaluation done and we got the results yesterday. We were also checking for autism. He does not have autism which is good to know. They suspect ADHD but won't diagnose yet because they said he was calm enough during the evaluation (even though just 20 minutes earlier in another evaluation he couldnt stay in his chair or anything) and he isn't in school yet so his attention there can't be measured so he doesn't qualify for the ADHD diagnosis yet they will see how it goes come fall when he starts kindergarten. Then came the cognitive testing which besides the nonverbal part in which he did great at everything was below normal which we suspected but its hard to hear. His spatial skills, language skills, and fine motor are all also behind. They want OT, speech and behavioral therapy this summer before school starts. When school starts they highly recommend a program that provides an intensive and comprehensive educational plan within a highly structured setting. They also recommend one that provides social skills, fine motor skills and communication skills. Our school district is already fighting me and won't do ANYTHING until after school starts and they see how he does in a school setting. I understand that, but he is already behind his peers. He just learned and still barely knows the alphabet. He can count to 10. He knows most colors but has some troubles but is also likely color blind so thats a hard one. He knows some shapes. He can count to 10. He can not identify any letter or numbers. He has dyspraxia especially in relation to graphomotor tasks, upper limb coordination (he has cp all limbs affected but arms more so than legs and right side more so than left). He can't copy simple designs. hecan't write anything cant identify even his name. difficulty even with cutting shapes. Even durignt he ot evaluation he required moderate modification of or assistance with tasks even the simple ones.

This is just one child too. My oldest is getting ready for a psychological evaluation and sleep study and everything. My other daughter has pt and such for EDS. My youngest has appointments for CP and everything as well its very overwhelming.
