noah world prematurity day

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for MedImmune. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” Did you know that November 17th is World Prematurity Day? I did not even though I have a lot of experience with premature babies. In fact I was going to write this post on Friday but a premature baby stopped that. My sister had her son after being on hospital bed rest for two weeks. Her water ruptured at 31 weeks but she managed to hold out … [Read more...]

The Santa Dilemma- to Ho Ho Ho, or not to Ho Ho Ho

santa-elf-meme

When you have your first Christmas as a parent, it seems like such a huge decision whether to start up the Santa Claus engine. It seems like so many kids react badly to finding out that Santa isn't real, and some kids end up harboring real resentment about being lied to. Like so many other things in parenting, it's become a polarized debate, with parents on all sides weighing in with strong opinions and concern over the eventual repercussions to their children. Santa used to be so simple! Well, I feel like it can be again. When my daughter first … [Read more...]

Hasbro’s Fall Toy Party

There are few things my kids love more than a party, and one of those is a party all about toys. Hasbro was kind enough to send me a select group of toys to try out and because I decided the most fun I could have was a party with some of my friend's and their kids. The toys were a huge hit as soon as I pulled them out. I'm surprised I got any pictures because they didn't want to slow down playing long enough to let me even point a camera at them. My personal favorite was Rocket Racoon. You can't beat Guardians of the Galaxy and Rocket is just … [Read more...]

Go! Go! Smart Animals are Tons of Fun!

Go! Go! Smart Animals Forest Adventure Playset

My son turned four today.  I am utterly amazed that it has been that long. I remember being at the doctor telling them that I either had the flu or I was dying.  Nope. I was pregnant. Barely four weeks pregnant to be exact.  And now I have a four year old.  The best thing about today was the fact that we could play toys all day long.  Or we could play one toy because that is how my son rolls. He has been playing with his Go! Go! Smart Animals™ Forest Adventure Playset™ since we received it.  It is very true that it is hours of fun. Children … [Read more...]

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias #AfterSchoolSnacks I don't know about your house but mine is a mess. My children play rough all day long and I can hardly keep up with them especially when it comes to cleaning up after them. I was sad when school started but only for a few days. I can finally get them to settle down for a bit. My sons especially act like they are Mr. Destructo when they play.  They are also really mean to each other. I don't know how many … [Read more...]
