Give the gift of an amazing experience with Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic!

The irony of writing a post about giving the gift of an experience instead of toys, when I’ve just spent over a month writing about all sort of (mostly toy) present ideas, isn’t lost on me. While I am certainly not against giving or receiving toys, movies or books as presents, there is something so special about giving a gift that combines your time and a fun, shared experience and Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic! is the perfect idea for any child (or adult Disney fan) on your Read more […]

Keep baby’s toes warm with Gaia Mama Goods slippers (#Etsy #giveaway)

At this time of year, I think most of us can be forgiven with being preoccupied with the holidays and all that goes with them, but the face remains that life is still happening as usual while we trim the tree, bake goodies and buy presents.

How can that seem so far and yet so close at the same time? – we try to keep most of our routines in place. A big part of our bedtime routine is the all-important story and while we let the girls pick most nights, we try to have a nice variety of books in the house so that Mom and Dad don’t get too tired of reading the same thing over and over. I was approached by Chungaboo to review Read more […]

Educational Insights makes learning fun (#giveaway x 2)

There are going to be lots of games under our tree this year and I’m excited to share them with my daughters! While I love how they play with their toys, spending time as a family playing a game is a fun childhood memory of mine and I’m looking forward to creating similar memories for our girls. Educational Insights sent me a couple of fun things that will have the girls laughing, learning and exploring. First up is Raccoon Rumpus™: A game of costumes, critters, matching, and memory! Read more […]
