With the birth of my 4th baby, I knew I needed a new diaper bag/purse solution. Regular diaper bags are too big and bulky and I DID NOT want to be carrying both a purse for me and a bag for the baby around everywhere I went. It was time to consolidate into one all-purpose, […]

Our newest little bundle is a month old already! He’s still sleeping lots during the day and not as much in the night…but whenever he sleeps, he’s always wrapped up in one of these fabulous cotton muslin swaddling blankets from Aden + Anais. They’re my favorite things ever.  Here he is at during  various naps over […]

MegaBloks generously agreed to sponsor our club and send us everything we could possibly need and then some! […]

With arm powered action instead of foot pedals, kids from 3 – 7 years can cruise AND […]

My boys were thrilled to help me review this set – they love the figures and the two cool Jeep vehicles, a green Expedition Jeep and orange off-road Jeep. The Expedition was Elliot’s […]

My young kids are constantly wanting to watch television shows on the internet. I usually let them watch one show a day after all their schoolwork and chores are done, but since they’re only 6 and 4, I don’t feel comfortable leaving them to their own devices for that half hour. It’s not like putting […]

Do your kids love Skylanders like mine do? We love all the great characters and all the fun toys, including these brand new Skylands Spinners. Each spinner comes with a battle tip and character – the character pieces can be mixed and matched to create fierce new characters and the battle tips are different shaped […]

  MegaBloks First Builders are the perfect building block into toy for toddlers as young as one year. We’ve been using the colorful 1-2-3 Learning Train (available this spring in stores) to teach Linus all about numbers and shapes while we build. We had lots of helpers at first. Everybody wanted to take a turn! […]
