Evenflo Platinum Symphony LX Car Seat Review #EvenfloPlatinum

Disclosure: I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own. When I looked for a car seat for my oldest son, who is now nearly nine, I wasn't sure what features would be important for me beside safety. Ultimately, I chose a model that was meant to be convertible from infant to toddler, and was heavily swayed by the stroller that the infant seat locked down into. Rookie mistake. While the seat took my son well into his third year, the stroller conked out on me and I eventually had to replace both altogether. Plus, cleaning and converting … [Read more...]

Lovable Labels Back to School Pack – Personalized Kids Labels Review and Giveaway – Ends 8/12

Disclosure: I was given a Back to Scho0l Pack in exchange for an honest and fair review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Back to school shopping is always a mix of fun and stress. I love watching my kids' excitement for the new year grow while we're getting all their supplies and new clothes. On the flip side, every year the cost of supplies for my three sons increases and it's enough to make any mom's head spin. The worst of it isn't buying 16 glue sticks (I'm totally serious), it's knowing that kids will be kids and they're going to misplace half the big ticket items, from their … [Read more...]

Alphabet Flash Cards Review – Ages 3+

Disclosure: A deck of these flashcards were provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are mine. Doing educational activities over the summer is a great way for me to keep my kids' skills sharp and help them transition into their next school year. My sons are four, six and almost eight with very different learning styles and skill levels, so having a variety of activities to tempt them away from the electronics is a must. We often use printed pages, workbooks, and writing exercises, but I usually have to use a separate¬† learning tool for each of my … [Read more...]

National Geographic Kids Super Reader Kit Review and Glveaway (3 wlnners) – Ends 12/14

National Geographic has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My grandpa had a subscription when I was a kid and whenever I'd visit, there would always be a couple stacks of those familiar, yellow-framed magazines under the table by his chair. I couldn't even fathom a guess as to how many hours I spent traveling the world through those magazines from the comfort of my grandma's braided area rug. When National Geographic Kids gave me the chance to review their Super Readers program through a partnership with Moms Meet, I was honored to take them up on it. And, from the … [Read more...]

Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles and Bubble Launcher Review and Glveaway #MyBlogSpark (Ends 6/11)

*I'm unfortunately having trouble getting my pictures to load, but I will add them as soon as possible. I have a houseful of boys and when it comes to playtime, messy is just part of the gig. Squeaky clean homes and kids are way overrated anyway, right? Since my kids will only be little once, my husband and I embrace the sloppy fun, because we feel that memories made are well worth a little extra cleanup. When my family was given the opportunity to enjoy some messy outdoor play with Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles and the Bubble Launcher I was totally excited! Everyone loves bubbles, … [Read more...]

Naptime Nanny Review and Giveaway NOW CLOSED

I'm a huge fan of reading to my kids, but at bedtime and nap times it can turn into a never-ending bookathon. I have three sons who all want to choose the story my husband or I am reading. More than once, full-scale storybook war has been waged which resulted in no reading whatsoever. Not. Cool. That's why I was excited (and relieved) to get the chance to review the Naptime Nanny CD collection. The set of three CDs was designed by a preschool teacher who was inspired by the lack of good recorded stories for young children. The Naptime Nanny library currently includes: Naptime Nanny … [Read more...]
