Marriott knows that “Tots Travel Too”! (Giveaway – CLOSED)


When my girls were small, we used to travel fairly often – usually either to visit my family a couple of hours away or I would have various business trips where I could bring my family with me. My older girls would get very excited whenever we had the opportunity to stay in a hotel [...]

Review and Giveaway: New Pampers Cruisers with Dry Max (CLOSED)


A couple of months ago Pampers introduced their new Cruisers diapers, with Dry Max technology to provide wetness protection in a diaper that’s been completely redesigned to be 20% thinner than before – to help wiggly, active babies move around easier, and also to lessen the impact that the diapers have on the environment by [...]

Review and Giveaway: Fandangling (CLOSED)


I can remember when each of my girls were babies and toddlers, how intrigued they would get with ceiling fans whenever they saw them. The house we lived in before our current one had fans in both kids’ bedrooms and I can remember turning the fans on at naptime to help soothe the girls to [...]

Review and Giveaway: Evenflo Generations 65 Booster Seat (CLOSED)


One of the most important sets of purchases that you make as a parent involves car seats. From deciding what kind of seat to bring your baby home from the hospital in (since it’s one piece of baby equipment every parent HAS to have), to keeping track of height, weight, strap location, when to [...]

She’s riding in style and comfort now… (review)


A while back, I was honored to become one of the Graco Nation Ambassadors. It’s been a lot of fun just to be involved with Graco – but I am also extremely happy to have any opportunity to promote them that I can find. I’ve been a fan of Graco’s products for years now – [...]

Giveaway: Safety 1st ‘Summer Road Trip Safety’ Basket (CLOSED)


I can remember back to when my oldest daughter was just a baby – and feeling so nervous every time I had her in the car. Just knowing that I was completely responsible for her safety while driving was a huge deal and something I thought about every time I fastened her into her car [...]

Giveaway Blast #5 – SafetyTat (CLOSED)


As a parent, what’s your number one worst nightmare? Other than accident or illness befalling my children, I know that mine is somehow losing one of my kids when we’re out and about in a crowd or having one of them wander off somewhere out in public. I’ve had a couple of scary moments [...]

Review: Oliver’s Labels


My oldest daughter is a Daddy’s Girl through and through. Not only is she very attached to her father, but she also takes after him in a lot of ways. One trait that I’m wishing she hadn’t inherited is the tendency toward absent-mindedly putting things down or not keeping track of them. I am constantly [...]

Giveaway: Evenflo Comfort Select Performance Breast Pump (2 winners)


My very first experience with a breast pump was only a few days after my first baby was born. After taking the one-day breastfeeding class through our local hospital, I had no second thoughts – I WAS going to breastfeed our baby. Having a baby with a different idea never even occurred to me. [...]

Review and Giveaway: Exergen Temporal Scanner


Like it or not, kids get sick. Way more than you’d ever expect before becoming a parent. I can remember back when our oldest was a baby – rushing her to the doctor for every little sniffle and being shocked when the pediatrician told us that kids average nine colds a year.  Colds are commonplace [...]

Review and Giveaway: Cart-Stopper


Through the past almost eight (gasp!) years, three babies, and a myriad of various shopping trips to everywhere from the grocery store, the mall, and everywhere in between – one fear that I’ve never quite been able to erase is the scenario where I pull my shopping cart (or stroller) up to the van and [...]

Giveaway: Miracle Blanket


One of the most interesting things I remember back from childbirth classes was trying to learn how to swaddle an infant. It wasn’t much easier on a doll that laid still than it was on our newborn baby once she was born – but by the time our second and third daughters were born, we [...]

Giveaway: Pookie Poncho


With all of the cold weather and snow that we’ve got outside (at least here in the Midwest!) right now it makes us parents think twice about taking our kids outside, unless we absolutely have to. But when we do, we make sure that they’re bundled up as snug and warm as possible. Which [...]

Holiday Gift Guide – Review and Giveaway: Classy Kid


Gift Guide Category: Gifts For Baby/New Moms

Germs are – everywhere. And we parents, try as we might, aren’t always as good at protecting our kids from them as we’d like to be. One company that I’ve discovered recently is Classy Kid – whose goal is to improve the quality of life of parents and children [...]

Holiday Gift Guide – Review: Play and Learn Baby Spoon

Gift Guide Category: Gifts For Baby/New Moms

My youngest daughter may be almost three years old, but I well remember that stage that kids go through as they turn from baby into toddler and start wanting to do everything for themselves.
Like eating. I used to regularly use two spoons to feed my kids – one to [...]

Holiday Gift Guide – Review and Giveaway: Baby Einstein


Gift Guide Category: Gifts For Baby/New Moms, Gifts For Kids

We first discovered Baby Einstein when my second daughter was a baby. We received our first videotape (Baby Beethoven) as a gift from a friend whose infant son absolutely adored watching the videos. My daughter liked it too, so we continued to expand our collection of [...]

Holiday Gift Guide – Review: Fill In The Blankie


Gift Guide Category: Gifts For Baby/New Moms

One thing that it seems all of us parents want for our kids when they’re born is something personalized. I know that when I was pregnant with my oldest, I spent hours working on a cross-stitched sampler. And even though I didn’t have the time to do so for [...]
