PROUD TO BE A:
When shopping for fun toys for the kiddos in your life you definitely won’t go wrong when selecting Fisher-Price. We have tons of Fisher-Price toys around our home and my girls love playing with all of them. One of their newest toys is the Giggle Gang and I was excited to receive two to try out. Since these are designed for little ones 6 months and up Willow will probably be the one to play with them the most, but since she is still baking (currently under the right side of my ribs) her big sisters have put them to … …..
With soon to be three girls in our home we have gone through tons of toys, but I am always on the look out for new toys to intrigue the girls – especially ones that will spark their imagination without the use of batteries or being plugged into the wall. I was so excited when I stumbled upon Geared for Imagination which is an Ohio based creator and distributor of high quality toys. In fact they are located about a half hour from me which I thought was pretty awesome! Geared for Imagination was founded in 2009 by two dads … …..

We have definitely been blessed in the Harper Household with two little girls that go to sleep at night without many issues (knock on wood), but when we moved the girls upstairs I was a little concerned since they would be in a new environment that wasn’t familiar to them. Our bedroom had been upstairs previously so they had been in the room, but not at night in the dark. I thought something that would put a little light in their room would help ease the transition and that is where Cloud B stepped in. The Cloud B Story: Cloud … …..

So many times I have stumbled across postings on facebook and even on craigslist with a picture of a baby blanket and a caption reading something like “Do you know where I can buy/find this exact blanket?” Usually it is because a child has become attached to a specific blankie and somehow it has gotten misplaced or left behind or it is simply falling apart from so much wear and tear. What if you could have 4 of the exact same blankie at an affordable price so this wouldn’t even have to be a concern? Well thanks to WAHM Jessica … …..
One thing I want to pass on to my kids is my love of reading. Most of my adult level reading gets done on the kindle app on my droid in the wee hours of the morning nursing Sugar – it’s the only way I can stay awake, but I absolutely love reading books to Dilly and Sugar. A quick tip to build your little one’s library: On the invitation to the baby shower/1st Birthday ask guests to sign a book instead of a card! Dilly’s library grew so quick by doing this and when reading her books we can … …..
At first glance Tisha’s Etsy shop “My Bambinos” doesn’t appear to fit the requirements for Handmade Halloween, but look at it from the view point of a munchkin too little to enjoy the candy portion of Halloween and I know you will change your mind. Her adorable oogie boogie monsters are the perfect non-sweet Halloween treat for any baby. Tisha sent me a really cute girl themed oogie boogie monster to let Sugar (my little drool monster) take on a test drive. When it arrived the packaging was even adorable, perfect if you plan to give the oogie boogie monster … …..
