American Girl Caroline Abbott

If you have a little girl, or friends with older daughters ages 4 and up, by now you may have heard about American Girl dolls and the experience of traveling to the American Girl store. These beautiful dolls have been collected by young girls ages 6 and up for decades. The original line of American […]

Jake and the Neverland Pirates Toys

Yo-Ho-Ho. Disney Junior we love you. Seriously. First we fell in love with Doc McStuffins, and since we exhausted all the episodes on-demand, Gavin is now singing the entire theme song to Jake and the Neverland Pirates. If you love this show, too, these are some of the Jake and The Neverland Pirates toys available. […]

Dealing with Tantrums over iPad and iPhone with Toddlers

The iPhone, iPad and Apple computer have revolutionized my life.

I can’t imagine my life without them and […]

BlogHer 2012

Last year I made my first trip to BlogHer in San Diego. This year I had a very short trip to BlogHer 2012 in New York City. My brother got married that weekend, so I literally went to BlogHer for the day, before it had even really even begun. McDonald’s did pretty much one of […]

Coolibar SPF Swimwear for Kids

  Several years ago my father had some skin cancer removed from his face. With an upcoming trip to the Caribbean he went on the hunt for large brimmed hats, long sleeved swim shirts and shorts. He stumbled upon Coolibar UV clothing online. After my Dad purchased several Coolibar suits and raved about them, they […]

Bob the Builder DVD’s

I kid you not as this week it’s literally a construction site on the road in front of our house. Yesterday I thankfully made it out of my driveway before they roped it off for the entire day. Last night I came home to an enormous excavator in the parking space in front of our […]

Usbourne Books: High Quality Educational Books for Children

Years ago I went to a convention and was introduced to Usbourne Books, high quality children’s books that are generally only available through home parties and independent sales consultants. Recently my son’s school had an Usbourne Book fundraiser through Wonderfun Books and portions of the proceeds were donated back to his daycare so the school […]

My parents have a pool and now that Gavin is a little older than bobbing around in an inflatable boat we scoured the pool stores and big box stores looking for something that would keep him safe in the pool, while helping him to develop some balance in the water giving him a little independence.
