Great Strollers from Urbini

Omni Bassinet

Disclosure: I participated in a Blog Blast on behalf of Mom Central for Urbini. I received information from Urbini to facilitate my post as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Baby Girl is 17 months old now so we have moved out of the infant car seat and stroller combos and are now on the hunt for an easy to use stroller to take with us. But, a lot of my friends are having babies so I have been browsing the stroller categories and found some great strollers from … [Read more...]

Teaching Kids to Have a Clean Bum

Teaching Kids to Have a Clean Bum

As if potty training isn't hard enough, there comes the added stress of teaching kids to have a clean bum. Even at 8 years and 6 years, we are still teaching (and reminding) the kids to have a clean bum! First thing first is teaching your child how to wipe themselves properly (you know the whole girls wipe front to back rule?) Second is to teach them that they don't need half the roll of toilet paper for their little bums! (And I promise you, both of my children continuously use far … [Read more...]

A New Dawn by Allie Berg {Book Review}

A New Dawn by Allie Berg {Book Review}

Amnesiac Essie Sundae has no idea that her psychically-inspired Easter baskets have antagonized treacherous supernatural entities. Or that her new lover is anything other than the identity-challenged shape-shifter he claims to be. To Essie, he’s the answer to her loneliness and, if she dares to trust him, possible help in filling in her blanks in her memory.

I am a freak about organization - especially when it involves my child's education being put in my hands! I wanted the best way to organize her lesson plans so that it was … [Read more...]

Free Printable: In Case of Emergency Car Seat Sticker

Free Printable Emergency Car Seat Sticker

Knock on wood we - as a family - haven't been in any car accidents other than maybe a fender bender or two where there was no damage and no real cause for concern. (And I specify "we" as a family because I have had an accident or two when I was younger.) However, hubby and the kids were in an accident (not hubby's fault) a few years ago. Luckily, they were all fine (our vehicle not so much) but it had me wondering what would happen if they weren't okay? There's always the "what if". My … [Read more...]

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

guardians of the galaxy

So I have to admit, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy did not initially appeal to me, personally.

Now, he and I are counting down to August 1st when Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy opens in theaters everywhere! Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy has a fun cast that includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot; … [Read more...]
