Tell us about it.It's the story of a magical island of little creatures called Smilies and the mischievous little main character, Smitty.
He's such a naughty boy. Haha! All the moms and kids I've shared it with have been giving me such a wonderful reaction. I cannot believe it. I have to tell you how excited I am to finally have a life-long dream come true. Writing The Adventures of Smitty was really about finding a story that I would want to read to my children at night. It has to be exciting but not scary so that my two daughters can go to sleep. Basically, I was looking for that perfect blend to read to my kids at night and decided, "Why not try writing my own?" We've had a lot of changes in our life recently, so I want to make sure that when I put my daughters to sleep that they feel safe. I have short chapters because I know how busy we moms are but if you can just sacrifice 5 minutes at night reading to your kids, it makes a world of difference. Your kids will never forget it. And although we're running around the whirlwind of life, our kids grow up so fast, and that time that we'd rather finish watching what happened in our favorite soap opera instead of reading to our kids will never come again. I hope that The Adventures of Smitty and books like it help moms do exactly that.
Where can we get a copy of "The Adventures of Smitty"?
Right now, it's available online by going to: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/94655 You can also visit my website: http://www.annadeskins.com/ where you can read more about my writing process, my recommendations for other books and my own adventures in Mommyhood. I'm so grateful for your support and the support I'm getting from so many wonderful moms who dream of writing children's books one day too. Writing The Adventures of Smitty has been such an emotional experience for me, a true journey as I was going through so many changes while writing it. It's truly been a blessing in my life. It, along with my daughters, and that guy upstairs have really pulled me through a challenging time.

Essentials Feet TreatMint Foot Lotion by Stanley Home Products is honestly one of the best foot lotions I have ever tried!
Often times, my feel will ache at the end of the day. I decided to try out this Feet TreatMint foot lotion to see if it really did soothe away the aches with its menthol and peppermint ingredients.
I rubbed it into both feet...which is a challenge for me because my feet are so ticklish... (but, I endured) and within minutes, the soreness and achenes were gone! Completely gone. Then, I decided to try it on my 10 year old son. He was saying that his feet were hurting from basketball practice. After all of the screaming and laughing (I guess he got tickle feet itis from me), he said that his feet no longer were hurting either!
I do not promote anything that I do not truly like...I would give this a try if I were you :) It may not work for everyone the same, but as for me and my son...we are hooked :)
