Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 11.41.58 AM

The stuff, or crap as we call it in our house that I'm talking about is the backpacks, the shoes, the jackets. Where do you store yours? I find these pieces all over my downstairs at any given time after school. We literally have a "shoe pile," in our front hall that I try and keep under control with some small shelves but it never really … [Read more...]

Most of New England is preparing for a big storm to wallop them tonight and tomorrow.  I'm seeing reports of up to 2 feet up in CT and Boston!  Here in Philly there's a big debate among the meteorologists about how much we'll actually get but either way, it won't be a surprise if my kids get a snow day tomorrow. Here's a couple of quick … [Read more...]

Check out my monkey in some of his new duds courtesy of Gymboree. I recently went to my local Gymboree and was able to get him a few really neat new pieces from their new line. I have to say, I hadn't been inside of Gymboree for years! They used to be my go-to when Nate was a baby and for whatever realize I didn't realize that they had big kid … [Read more...]

A Gift Guide For Baby: Skip Hop

skip-hop-puppy-stroller-bar-snack-tray-4

I have both a four year old, and a three month old. This Christmas my son is easy. He can tell me what he wants, and even if he doesn't tell me, there are a TON of things that I can think of that he needs (OK wants). My daughter on the other hand needs nothing, but of course I want to get her things, so I wanted to share a few items from Skip Hop … [Read more...]

Last Minute Gift Idea For A Girl: Orbeez

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 4.48.24 PM

Is it totally shameful that I kind of want one of these for me? The Orbeez Body Spa ($49.99, Target.com) is an inflatable seat that you fill with Orbeez beads (6000 come with the product!) They are soft and the chair vibrates while you sit in it - helloooo comfortable? It runs on C battaries and the idea is that you don't use all 6000 beads at … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 9.45.34 AM

Do you guys have gamers in your house? That's pretty much all my boys are about over here. We have both a WiiU and an Xbox360 and I'd say the WiiU is definitely the preferred system of choice right now although I do see Nate (11) starting to move over to the Xbox more. For gaming purchases, I'm all about GameStop. While I love Amazon, … [Read more...]

My son is only four, but he already knows about the Tooth Fairy, and the fact that he will someday lose his teeth. A fact that he isn't all too pleased about might I add! When I was little I had a pillow by my bed that I would put my tooth in and the fairy would leave me money. Easy enough! Now, with the Complete Tooth Fairy Kit you can make your … [Read more...]

Love to Swaddle Up: An Innovative Swaddle Option

love to swaddle

After having my daughter I decided to give swaddling a try, but I found it extremely difficult to get it right. I was horrible at using the blanket to swaddle, and had a little bit of luck with the sleepsacks that had swaddle pieces attached. Somehow her arms always got loose. Then I found Love To Dream's solution to this problem...the Love To … [Read more...]
