Nick Jr.

By Emily.  I was compensated for attending this event sponsored by Nick Jr. and Mom.me. The thoughts and opinions below are my own.  A few weekends ago I took my boys to Nick Jr.’s Mega Playdate with Blaze and Shimmer and Shine! My boys LOVE Blaze and the Monster Machines and as much as they claim not to like “girl shows” guess what show never gets turned off when it’s on? Shimmer and Shine, ha! Both my boys are obsessed with cars. They alternate between monster trucks, matchbox cars, RC cars, and they make tracks and jumps everyday it seems.  So … Read more

By Emily. My kids are in a frenzy right now over Halloween and all the costume talk always comes back to one thing – “What are YOU gonna be mom?” We teamed up with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for our team costumes (found these at Target!) and let the boys dreams come true.

Learning Songs

By Nicole. This summer as we road tripped to and from the beach, to grandmas and other locations near and far, we realized we were spending an awful lot of time in the car. We always listen to music, it’s uplifting and happy music, but still, its sort of just killing time, right? About halfway through the summer I started to explore other options. I knew the kids still wanted MUSIC. They love to sing, but I wanted them to learn while at it. Thus inspired our learning playlist. I hope these songs, and this Podcast ( my kids are … Read more

Mini Olympic Games

The Olympic games are in the air. Seriously, we aan feel it all the way up here in America! (Rio isn’t THAT far away).

Its been so fun to watch these kids get older, and to see them getting inspired by the talented and strong athletes that have been training since they themselves were … Read more
