Pimp My Ride!

I have to admit that I am a bit of a stroller geek.  I can identify most strollers from across the street.  I like to stay updated on all the newest models, and all the latest improvements.  Here are some rides I found that I won't be selling, but I sure do love!

Chicago Bean Inspired!?

Low rider!

Monster truck!

 Ultra modern!

Hot rod!

Spring break! Time for new lunch supplies!

The kids are home this week, and we are taking the time to have fun, relax, and enjoy each others company without the hustle of the school schedule.  In cleaning out my school lunch supplies, I realized it's time to update some of our delivery systems. Here are some great products we use to get food safely, economically, and earth friendly, to our kids lunch tables.   Spring cleaning feels good!

This one's for the men!

I'm not sure what to make of this trailer that shares the name of one of the most popular pregnancy books ever!  This seems like an effort to get guys to come to this movie, however, I find some of it really funny. Uppababy and BOB strollers score huge in product placement.  No Judgie!

We love Naturepedic mattresses for baby!

Give your baby the best, safest, and most comfortable place to sleep.  Their own crib!

Naturepedic products eliminate hazardous chemicals found in conventional mattresses while offering a more natural and non-toxic alternative for parents. In addition, Naturepedic does not sacrifice critical features and benefits such as waterproofing and a hypoallergenic design. With so many “organic/natural/eco” options available (cotton batting, soybean foam, coconut husks, natural latex/rubber, wool, etc.), it can be difficult to differentiate among the various offerings. 

Naturepedic was founded by a quarter century environmental engineer familiar with hazardous chemicals. Through in-depth research, Naturepedic has identified and selected the most natural and non-toxic materials that make sense on a practical level. All Naturepedic products follow these principles and priorities: 

Priority #1: No harmful chemicals. 

Priority #2: No allergenic materials. 

Priority #3: Natural, organic and renewable materials wherever possible. 

Priority #4: Practical design (e.g. easy-to-clean waterproof cover). 

Priority #5: Third party independent testing and verification. 

Naturepedic has become the standard for safe and healthy organic baby and children's mattresses and is used by over 150 hospitals across the U.S. 

Naturepedic products offer a much needed solution to the chemical and safety issues, as well as the quality and comfort concerns, of today's discerning parents.

My daughter has a crush on a boy and it's killing me.

I don't want her to like boys. I want her to like crayons and spinning around until she falls to the ground in hysterical laughter. I want her to like Barbie, but to keep her distance from Ken. I want her to like reading in bed, creating dance routines with friends, painting her nails, and listenting to her favorite music.

I want her to like harassing her brother with her cunning. I want her to like going to the movies, eating popsicles no matter what the temperature. I want my daughter to like going to school, learning, and hanging out with her girlfriends .

However, that is precisely where the trouble began. The group of girls has planted the seed that has grown into a full on crush. Love letters, maps on how to deliver the love letters, and directions for all the girls to paticipate in said delivery of the letters, have all transpired during the girls "hanging out."  This Valentine's day the "crush" sent her a flower at school. Home run, slam dunk, game over...

There is nothing I can do. It's time to get over it and move on, or move away.

World record paper airplane!

I admit it. This post is a bit geeky, but you have to understand that I have spent countless hours making and flying paper airplanes with my son.  I have the paper cuts to prove it.
