I don't see a lot of movies in the theater each year, but I did make it out to see Diary of A Wimpy Kid. This was a great movie that our entire family enjoyed. My older two had read the entire series and they were dying to go see it. I wasn't expecting too much from it, but I think I may have ended up liking it more than anyone.
Maybe it was because my oldest is now headed off to Middle School this fall, but it ...
I have found a great necklace that you will love! Simple and wonderful, Julian & Co. has created a keepsake necklace for moms, the Galleria necklace. I received one to review and I absolutely love it. Engraved in a circle are each of my children's names. Very pretty and dear to me. In addition to pieces for moms, there are creations for dads, babies and children, which make perfect gifts for many special occasions.
I love how Julian & Co came to be. Tania's baby was born prematurely at 29 ...

Are you in the market for a fantastic infant car seat? Look no further! Mico from Maxi Cosi is the answer. I received a Mico car seat for review and it is everything you could ever want in a high end infant car seat. This is made for ages birth to 12 months. Lightweight, convenient, and comfortable for the baby, Mico is also very good looking. It comes in a variety of color combinations, which isn't crucial to picking out a car seat, but it does make it more ...
She's the doll you create--and bring to life online! Who is she? My American Girl! I received a doll to review this past week and she is wonderful! She is a doll that girls can relate to, as she is contemporary. The really cool thing about this doll is the online feature. Through innovative online tools, girls can create their own doll with an interactive website for those ages 8 and up. Each doll is as unique as the girl creating her. Each My American Girl doll comes with ...
I nursed my babies, but I always had to have a big blanket with me at all times to do so. It was something that took up a lot of space in my bag, but it was a necessity for my comfort. Not exactly stylish and not all that handy considering the blanket could fall off my shoulder at any time.
Reno Rose has developed the ultimate solution for nursing moms or even those who are fashion savvy. The Nurf is a stylish scarf that you can use to accessorize ...
There are several items every parent needs. Things that make your life easier with squirmy babies. What are your essential items when you leave the house?

I thought so. Here is a fantastic solution for you.
"The patemm® pad—a smart, stylish and practical solution to the diaper bag—is a patented, award-winning design that makes changing ...

So, rumor has it that there are some issues, as of late, with the drinking water in Clinton. Whether you live there or not, it makes you stop and think about what is really in the water we drink everyday, right? Well, water is a necessity and having to boil water to drink it doesn't sound like a great long term solution. Water bottles get expensive very quickly, too. Not to mention the environmental factor of using all those water bottles. Zuvo sent me a water filtration system to ...
Can you believe this is the very last week of July? Just a few weeks left of summer before school is back in session! I hope you have been having a great summer and having lots of fun with your kids and families.
One of the things I love about summer is just playing outside with my kids in the evening. Our family loves to run around outside, chase fireflies, ride bikes and scooters, and just chat. Taking walks through the neighborhood are great times to hear everything my kids ...

We received two very fun DVDs from HIT entertainment to check out and my four year old couldn't be happier! I guess it has been a while since I have watched a Thomas & Friends DVD and I was pleasantly surprised at how the animation quality had changed. My four year old is a huge Thomas fan and was so excited to see episodes that he had not seen before. This is a great addition to a Thomas lover's DVD collection!

Go Go Get Some!
My kids love applesauce and they are always on the go. Just this past week, I was packing up lunches for them for soccer camp when I realized that containers of applesauce weren't really very convenient for their outdoor camp. So often, the contents of those containers end up on their shirts when they attempt opening them. Then you have to deal with spoons and if those fall on the ground, yuck! Never a good thing! But they love applesauce, so what am I supposed to do?
As I ...

Your little bakers will love pretending to create their own yummy confections with this set. Gummy Lump is an ...
It's that time of year, whether we want to admit it or not. We are gearing up for Back to School. I know we all want to do our part to be green and less wasteful. A great place to start is with our children's lunches.
This past year I don't even want to know how much waste came from daily lunches, baggies and juice boxes being discarded daily. This year, I plan on thinking ahead and avoiding all of that. I came across Laptop Lunches and ...

I remember growing up making ice pops from scratch. I absolutely loved it. It was something we did every summer. But since I have become a mom, I have yet to see something easy to do the job right. Until now, that is. I was sent the Zoku to check out and it is everything I wanted to have in an ice pop maker. You can freeze the base and when the base is properly frozen, you can pull it out and pour your homemade ice pop concoctions (the possibilities ...
