Let's Talk About Some Common Misconceptions About Occasional Incontinence… #PeeHappens

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Always Discreet. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation

I have this one friend who is the life of the party. When the girls and I get together, her recollections of days gone by have us in stitches. A few weeks ago, we got together for lunch and she was at it again. One of the girls blurted “You are hilarious. Stop it, you’re gonna make me pee on myself.” Then we all started laughing. Back in the day when we were pregnant, a little tinkle happened and now that we’re getting older “PeeHappens”.

Their timing couldn’t have been any better. I had just received samples of Always Discreet bladder protection pads and briefs and happened to have the packages in my car. The girls are always teasing me about my being in the know when it comes to practically everything. “Leave it to Tomi to have some tinkle pads”. Next thing you know we’re all sitting around sipping sweet tea talking about bladder protection. Maybe it was being among friends which made my friends more open to such an awkward conversation. Honestly, I’d never talked to anyone about occasional leaks but after talking with my friends leaks aren’t all that uncommon.

Always Discreet are very discreet and easy to conceal in your clutch or beach bag.


Always Discreet offers liners, pads and underwear with a variety of leakage protection to meet your individual needs. Some may need a light liner for day to day protection. Others may need a pad or underwear for maximum protection. Always Discreet has a product to meet your personal needs.

 Let’s clear up some misconceptions about 
those little accidents we have from to time.


  1. Pee Happens
  2. Urinary incontinence is common. Many women experience incontinence during pregnancy and following childbirth
  3. UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections) may lead to urinary incontinence
  4. Laughing, coughing, sneezing and exercising put pressure on the bladder and may cause occasional incontinence
  5. Certain prescriptions may cause incontinence
  6. Incontinence can be a sign of a more serious underlying condition
  7. Talk with your doctor. It’s great to have a friend you can confide in about your occasional incontinence but talk to your doctor to see if there’s an underlying condition that may be causing your incontinence. I know it’s an awkward conversation, but believe me you are not alone and remember Urinalysis is a covered benefit under PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) and in some instances you may not have to pay a deductible, co-payment or coinsurance for the service.

So keep laughing…
    Always cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze…
        And don’t let the occasional “oops” ruin your day!

Bedtime Devotions with Jesus Book Review


Trustworthy devotional moms and dads can use to make bedtime family time, faith time.

After the busyness of the day is done, before your child nods off to sleep, snuggle up to read God's Word and daily reminders about how much He loves and takes care of us. Bedtime Devotions with Jesus is a collection of prayers and devotions written by pastors, pastor's wives, children's ministers, and other church leaders. In this book are valuable lessons on such topics as thankfulness, obedience, trusting God, being kind, loving others, and many more. God's Word comes alive using simple language, and the devotions are featured with delightful illustrations of teddy bears. This book will teach children ages 4-8 the value and joy of spending time with God every day.

Each devotional includes a scripture, a brief devotional reading, a prayer, and a meaningful takeaway that helps children build a strong foundation of faith. This is the first children's book in the hugely popular MyDaily™ Devotional line. Devotionals for adults in the MyDaily series have sold more than 173,000 copies.

About the Author
    Dr. Johnny Hunt is the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Woodstock, Georgia. He is a sought after speaker who holds conferences each year for men, senior adults, and youth. He is the president of Timothy Barnabas Ministry designed to encourage pastors and their wives. Devotionals by Johnny Hunt include The One Year Devotional Prayer Book, The One Year Devotional Prayer Book Vol. 2, Pathway to Discipleship, and Walk Through the Word.


My Thoughts
   Bedtime Devotions with Jesus is a cute beginning devotional for new parents to share with their little ones.  It's a great way to wind down your child's busy day and incorporate daily worship into their day.  Although the Bedtime Devotions with Jesus is billed as a book for early readers, I found it to be perfect for sharing with younger children.  

The devotions are brief, easy to read and Bedtime Devotions with Jesus is artfully illustrated with cute animated drawings of teddy bears.  All in all a great book to gift and / or share.

New Releases from Nickelodeon featuring TMNT Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Turtles from the 2003 hit-animated series have re-emerged in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Search for Splinter and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: NYC Showdown, bringing some of the biggest adventures from season one of this classic series back to DVD in two exciting volumes, each offered at a great value price! Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Search for Splinter and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: NYC Showdown are both available on DVD June 9!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Search For Splinter Episodes:

  • Things Change–In the first episode of this series, the Turtles and Master Splinter are suddenly attacked by a horde of Mouser robots! These mechanical menaces chomp through stone, steel, and even Turtles, until the roof of the Turtle’s sewer-lair caves in, separating our heroes from their beloved Master. Now the Turtles must abandon their home of 15 years and find their missing master. On the way, they have to deal with collapsed sewer tunnels, the Purple Dragon street gang and a small army of mysterious, highly trained ninjas!
  • The Search for Splinter, Part 1–After the frustrated Turtles exhaust their search for Splinter, their suspicions turn to the Guardians and the trail soon leads them to a non-descript building. The initials of its company name spell out “TCRI”–the same letters stamped onto the canister of ooze responsible for their mutation. Now with two reasons to infiltrate that building, the Turtles recruit both April and Casey to help get them inside.
  • The Search for Splinter, Part 2–In this conclusion of the two-part season finale, the Turtles successfully infiltrate the mysterious TCRI building, where they manage to sneak into its inner sanctum and locate the unconscious Splinter inside a stasis tank. They also discover that there’s more to the technicians inside than meets the eye.



Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: NYC Showdown Episodes:


  • Return to New York, Part 1-The Turtles return to New York with one goal in mind--to destroy Shredder once and for all. With April providing remote computer assistance from the lair, the Turtles begin their assault on the Foot Headquarters skyscraper, fighting their way to the top, floor by floor. They must overcome an army of Foot Ninja Guards and the deadly cloaking Foot Tech Ninja, but no one is quite prepared for what they encounter inside a Foot Genetics lab.
  • Return to New York, Part 2-The Turtles and Splinter continue to fight their way up through the Foot Headquarters skyscraper, facing down three misshapen Mutant Shredder Clones, a hallway of traps and never-before-seen supernatural foes known as the Mystic Ninja. Finally, they reach their goal--the top floor and Shredder's throne room--but they must confront Shredder's deadly Foot Elite Ninja. Things really get out of hand when Stockman, in a souped-up exo-suit, crashes the party…literally.
Return to New York, Part 3-With Stockman showing up in the middle of the final battle between our heroes and Shredder, everything is thrown into chaos, temporarily forcing the Turtles to team up with Shredder and Hun to defeat Stockman before he annihilates them all. Once Stockman is eliminated, the final fight continues as the Turtles face the ultimate challenge high atop Shredder’s skyscraper.
