I'm not an expert at anything, in fact I'm a wannabe at everything: DIYer, crafter, cook, baker, fashionista & beauty guru extraordinaire. And so far I ain't bad BUT am still learning. Like I have lots of learning ahead of me. My blog is a little bit of this and that in my wannabe adventures; oh and random ramblings on family life, motherhood, and my kiddos. Y se habla español.

My Favorite Night Time App

Hey everybody!  I hope all my fellow Americans went out and rocked their vote today.  I'm so glad all this election bizness is almost over and done with and we can happily move on to the next mudslinging event.  (insert sarcasm)

Anywho, lots of my Facebook friends are saying what they are thankful for each day and today I thought I would let you all know that I'm thankful for the Ambiance app on my iPhone and iPad.  The best white noise app in my opinion.  And it's free!



And my favorite sound selection on Ambiance is Rain and Thunder in the Rain category.  It soothes me and my kiddies to sleep and there have been mornings when I wake up thinking that it actually rained the night before.  :)


Oh how I have loved white noise since the days we brought my son home from the hospital.  I quickly realized the importance of white noise and finally "got it" after hearing people talk about it here and there.  Oh yes siree Bob is white noise a necessity in my home.  The kids fall asleep faster and much easier with a little background noise.

Every night when I tuck the kids into bed, I have the iPad in hand and they tell me which sound they want for the night.  Sometimes it's an ocean sound and sometimes it's a rain sound.  So far this is what they like and we have not gone past these two sounds.  Although the app has 27 different sound categories (free) to choose from and then they have their premium sounds which cost $0.99 each.  They even have an Animal sound category.  Grunting pigs or howling monkeys, anyone?  Yes, those are real sound selections. 



Another favorite feature about this app is that it has a timer.  I remember when it didn't have a timer and it would drain my battery dry.  Now I get to choose a timer when I tuck the kids into bed or when I tuck myself into bed.  Yes, every now and then I need this app to help me fall asleep.  There are nights when I have too much on my mind and I need help getting some zzzzz's. 


Anyone else love this app as much as my kids and I do?  May you all have a restful night tonight.  I suggest using this app if you need help.  :)
