Counting down with Advent Calendars

November 20, 2009 0

As far as holiday traditions go, for my boys the Advent calendar ranks right up there with making Christmas cookies and putting lights on the tree. They LOVE it… There are so many Advent calendar options out there, they come in all shapes and sizes, filled and not. If you’re looking for something on the decorative side… (more)

One Mom’s Review…

November 12, 2009 0

Product reviews are everywhere these days. Go shopping online and you’ll see reviews on toys, electronics, shoes and more. They’ve even popped up on apparel sites like Gap and Old Navy. I love it. I can get an opinion on the race track I’m considering buying my 5-year-old, the GPS unit I was going to order my husband for his birthday, or the snow boots that I way eyeing for myself.

Wanted: A Better To Do List

November 9, 2009 1

In general I’m a list maker. It helps me keep on top of my never ending to-do list. In fact, there are usually three or four lists floating around here at any given moment… Usually these lists are scrawled on random pieces of paper or notebooks, but lately I’ve felt the urge to get a little more formal, and hopefully a little more effective! I googled for a bit on the subject, and found some candidates for my new and improved to-do list, so I thought I’d share…

Maclaren Stroller Recall

November 9, 2009 0

Maclaren is recalling at least 1 million umbrella strollers because of a potential hazard to children’s fingers. A side hinge mechanism poses the risk of cutting or amputating a child’s fingers when the stroller is being opened or closed, the British company said Monday. The voluntary recall applies to all Maclaren strollers sold in the U.S. since they were introduced in 1999.

Donate Your Gently Used Coats

November 6, 2009 0

As the annual Thanksgiving and Christmas craziness approaches, I try to remember to slow down, count my blessings, and remember that not everyone has what we are so lucky to have, including a warm place to sleep at night. One small thing I can do is to help is to donate the gently worn coats we are no longer using to local charities. It’s a good lesson for my boys too, it reminds them that there are lots of children out there less fortunate than them, and to be grateful for what they have.

If you have unused coats that you’d like to donate, check out these links to winter coat drives in the area… (more)
