DISNEY DIARIES: Magical Moments #DisneyKids

IMG_20140322_142419713_HDR

Going out with Marcus has always been a challenge.  After summer of his 2nd year and ER visits almost every other weekend, we were told by his allergist that restaurants and outside food were no longer an option for him.  We were devastated for what this meant for our family and mostly for him.  He became our boy in the bubble.  Traveling with him always began with the question, should we bring him?  Then, can we bring him?  But more than anything we wished for Marcus to have as much of a normal childhood as possible and whats more normal […]

Let’s Talk about Poop! #OTCSafety

Final_OTC-Poop-Infographic

{ disclosure: I am an #OTCSafety Ambassador.  As always all opinions expressed here are my very own. } There never is a time that poop is more talked about then when you have children.  Straight from the nursery at the hospital you are told to count the amount of poopy diapers your new baby has every day.  You sort of become obsessed with poop from that point on!  Pooping just tells you so much about your child’s digestive health.  My kids range from infant to elementary age and each of them have their own poop stage.  Right now my family is still […]

The Power of Clean Teeth

ava_tooth

{ disclosure: We received a Philips Sonicare for Kids sample for review.  No other compensation was received.  My family has been using Sonicare for well over a decade and are huge fans of the brand.  As always, all opinions are ALWAYS our very own. } Last week was a HUGE week!  Ava lost her very first tooth! With that we just saw the sprouting of her “adult” tooth!  It’s always been a struggle to properly brush her teeth.  Even after a visit with the dentist yields only about a week worth of good hygiene and brushing habit.  This has all […]

The NEW 65 Pound LATCH Rule

INAM109

Written by Julie Vallese, Consumer Safety Expert, Dorel Juvenile Group Statistics for proper car seat installation haven’t changed in more than a decade. Despite changes in federal regulations, the availability of car seat installation checks and ongoing education campaigns, three out of four car seats are installed incorrectly. While some may need minor adjustments for proper installation, others sometimes need to start from ground one. It only seems like an advanced degree may be needed in “installationology” but by starting off with the basics you’re one step closer to success. Here are some easy tips to think about: The three most […]

Contain the Toys with #ToyTainer!

mat

It can be it’s own mission!  My kids have toys everywhere and I can appreciate good storage solutions! I recently discovered ToyTainers! This awesome toy solution from Australia has made it’s way stateside and I’m in love! They make cleaning up fun!  Marcus loves his dump trucks and their ToyTainer™ Bulldozer Scoop N’ Store is all sorts of awesome for collecting all his little cars and legos.  Ava had a blast collecting all of her Barbie’s shoes and accessories into her new ToyTainer™ Ice Cream Trunk Play N’ Store.  I love that they don’t look out of place in the playroom while making […]

RIDE Disney

mickey

This is Post #2 in a series focusing on Disneyland, read Post #1 Disney Eats. I am super excited to be heading to Disneyland this April for the coveted Disney Social Media Moms Celebration!  Not only is it a complete honor, but it’s been over a decade since I last step foot in Disneyland, the place which broke my crushing memories of a childhood lost and restored the beauty of Disney in my heart.  I’ve talked about my tease into the world of Disney as a child, when my parents drove 2 days down to Florida for a visit with […]
