Take a Tea Moment this holiday (giveaway)

Now that the season is definitely turning to winter, I’m turning to a nice hot mug of tea in the afternoons to warm my hands and remind myself to take a moment to myself – a “tea moment”, as Libre Tea calls them.  I have a fairly new-found love of loose leaf tea and the Libre tea glass’n poly Mug is a great way for me to enjoy my tea on the go! I have reviewed the Libre glass’n poly original and was curious to see how the Glass’n poly Mug compared.  It holds about 20mL more and I really Read more […]

Hot Holiday Toys from Learning Curve (Chuggington giveaway)

I love toys that can also teach my girls something.  The Lamaze Cowgirl Carly Activity Doll helps toddlers and young children develope their fine motor skill development through play: your little one can help Carly button her vest, tie her scarf, buckle her belt, zip up one boot or fasten the other boot.  I remember looking high and low for a doll like this when Ashlyn was a year old, so I’m excited that Rowan can have one of her own!  Recommended for ages 18 months and up, it retails Read more […]

Little Mommy™ My Very Real Baby™ Doll

All Ashlyn wants for Christmas this year is a new baby doll.  She even worked up the nerve to ask Santa for one in person, only to find out that she has to wait for Christmas Day to get it! I received the Little Mommy™ My Very Real Baby™ Doll from Mattel to review and I know Ashlyn is going to love it when she opens it!  For ages 2 and up, this little doll has all sorts of features that will make my little girl feel like a ‘little mommy’.  The doll says a number of phrases, including Read more […]

Merry Mailbox (giveaway)

This is the first year that Ashlyn has been old enough to begin to understand the magic of Santa.  We took her to get her picture taken with Santa on Wednesday, and once she worked up the nerve to actually talk to him she was a little put out that she asked Santa very politely for a new baby doll and didn’t get it right then and there. Merry Mailbox is an Etsy store that lets your child receive a personalized letter from Santa!  All you have to do is answer some questions and Santa’s speical Read more […]

Stonz Mittz (giveaway)

One of my biggest pet peeves is trying to get, and keep, mittens on a baby during the winter.  Ashlyn acted as though we were amputating her hands every time we tried to force those teeny baby mittens on her hands, and then she’d promptly manage to get the mittens off and her little hands would freeze.  Luckily, we were in Vancouver at the time and it wasn’t very cold during the winter so she survived.  Now that we’re in Ottawa, I knew that Rowan would require something better to keep her Read more […]
