As a parent what is one that thing that remains constant? The fact that I will have something to clean, as much as I love him, kids, they sure know who to mess up the house. I also want to make sure especially when flu and cold season hits that we have the easiest and fastest way to keep those nasty germs at bay. I’ve been looking for some new products that will help me keep my house clean and my family from getting sick.

Are you a homeowner? I have always wanted to be a homeowner, for now, my son and I reside with my parents (who happen to be homeowners). This is my first year back living in California. I forgot how lovely the weather is! Being homeowners, they have the option to have a television outside in their own backyard.
Are you ready to meet the television made for outdoor enjoyment? These are perfect for homeowners!

What little one doesn’t love a dinosaur? I know my kids are crazy about any type of dino! From a young age imaging what life was like when dinos roamed the world, it is so much fun to use your imagination.

Teleflora® offers the most beautiful floral arrangements I’ve ever seen. Every time I visit their website there are unique new arrangements available with some of the most stunning designs and vase options I think that I’ve ever seen.
The bouquets I’ve received from them have looked just like what they show on their website and are big, beautiful arrangements. I think it’s an incredible value due to the quality vases and plants used. My cats sometimes like to get up on the table to sniff them (and they’re not exactly gentle about it) but the durability of the arrangement means I don’t have to worry about them ruining it.
I’ve gotten several Teleflora® bouquets to decorate my home over the last six months and have never been disappointed. My favorite part is that, even though the bouquets last for a long time, I found a way to get even more enjoyment out of them once some of the blooms start to dry out and fade…. [read more]
I’m the mom of four young kids but I also have a background in early childhood education, so I know how important enrichment is for growing minds. I’m always looking for fun ways to engage and have fun with my little ones. What is a better way to have fun and learn then with books and bathtime or water fun?
Finding the best enrichment for Your Little Ones
My children LOVE the water, no matter if its bath time or water play they are all about it. So I’ve come across a few items I’d love to share.
Let’s start with my kids favorite one, and I am going to have to invest in others from Marcus and Marcus because they all love this Squirting Silicone Bath Toy. What is my favorite thing about this toy? It is the fact that it can actually be taken apart and left to air dry keeping it from growing any gross things inside of it. We have gotten rid of so many bath or pool toys for just this reason, with Marcus and Marcus squirting silicone bath toy my little ones don’t have to worry about getting sick from any gross germs and it also comes in fun other shapes from lion to elephant. It’s so much fun.
Our next product is the Bright Basics ABC Tubbies from Educational Insights. With these floating foam shapes, leaning your animals and letters have never been so much FUN! There are 26 engaging designs that keep your little ones brain growing and using their imagination. It also helps hand and eye coordination fitting the shapes and letters together.
Another fun fine motor set of toys is from Learning Resources. The Sand & Water Fine Motor Set improves dexterity when sifting, spinning, and squirting to make hours of fun. A great pack along set for the beach or everyday play.
Our final water toy is the Yookidoo Musical Duck Race. This fun little toy pulls water from your tub to make a fun fountain and race track for your four little ducks. I always call my Little ones my little ducks in a row so this toy is perfect for them! Each little duck toy has its own fun spray. All my kids love this toy even my 5 month old loves to look at it.
You can’t have books, babies, and baths without the BOOKS! So i’ve found some super fun first learning books for your little ones. Reading is so important in our family and it starts at a young age. My oldest is six and is learning to read at school and loves reading to her smaller siblings. She was excited that she can read these books. Sesame Street: 5 Little Rubber Duckies and 10,9,8…Owls Up Late are some amazing first reads.
My son loved counting all the duckies and we even taught him to sing the song, now any time he sees the book he yells ” Ernie loves his duckies mommy!” Grab your copy and learn with Ernie and all his Sesame friends. You will love Sesame Stree: 5 Little Rubber Duckies too.
In 10,9,8… Owls Up Late you countdown to bedtime. My oldest loves reading it to her brothers and sisters to help with getting everyone calmed down. Its a great family book about some little owls who need to go to sleep. These are some great book choices for you little ones of all ages.
Bringing play and learning together, builds stronger children for tomorrow.
How do you help your kids build a brighter future?
As the mom of four little ones under six and under I’m bad about not taking the time to do things for myself, or I don’t always put myself first. I’ve decided that lately, I needed to take time to change that because as a parent I’m important too.
How can I make sure to treat myself?
Who doesn’t love an adorable little puppy dog? Well just like any other kids their age my children sure love any puppy dog they see. Any time we are out at the park we always make a game to see who can spot the most dogs and what kind they are. We even have three dogs of our own. So what a better movie than the new Puppy Dog Pals: Vol. 1 (DVD).
Puppy Dog Pals are on a MISSION!
I’m always looking to add new clothes to our wardrobe, and I’ve found a perfect small business that I wanted to share. I first found this little shop last year, and have been in love with their products since. I always would rather buy from small businesses because you’re actually helping out an actual person and their family. In this amazing shop called Wild Pigeon Clothing, there is something for everyone. So let me show you some of the clothing that I picked out for my children and myself.

Who loves My Little Pony?
Your pony pals are back with My Little Pony The Movie! Are you ready?
My kids love their pony pals, especially my oldest daughter. Her first 2 birthday parties were pony themed and to be honest when she was really little up to 5 months we would loop the theme song and it could calm her right down. Now six years later she was so excited to hear that the creators are coming out with a new movie. My middle daughter actually went as Pinky Pie this year for Halloween, so we love some ponies in our house. As soon as we got the package she insisted on putting it in right away and she and her siblings sat right down to watch and didn’t move through the entire movie.
