My Girl … Never Apologise For Being Flamboyant

Tonight I had an earth shattering realisation – perhaps even life changing (but we’ll have to check back on that one) – I parent in a very controlling way. As a parent, I am always trying to control my children. And I mean that in the nicest way possible… not in some crazy-mom obsessive kind of way. Let me explain;… Read more »

Little Tikes – Product Review

      Comments Off on Little Tikes – Product Review

There is nothing more daunting than 4 months of snow. Trying to figure out creative ways to occupy children is enough to cause any mother to hide in her closet, while her minions release their pent up energy and destroy the home! Luckily for me Bettertoyz sent this mama some much needed time (sanity) savers by Little Tikes. We actually love… Read more »

A weekend filled with Red, White and Blue Sparkles

I was meant to write this post last week, but time just simply got away from me.

Living in today’s “tech-savvy”, germ-a-phobic world. I find that children are spending less and less time outdoors.
