It’s that time of year again guppies and I am ready to send you into a sugar induced frenzy! Are you ready to explore the secret life of the most mysterious creature living in the big deep blue? Shark Week has begun and I am back with another fun treat for the whole family to enjoy while tuning in. Last year we discovered how excited people really got for this week long shark-freakin-tastic feature and our own love for Shark Week begun. If you were around back then, you probably remember the Cake Batter Shark Bait I made for us to munch on as we celebrated the shark. The shark gummies were a huge hit too!

I think it’s fair to say that every child enjoys a big bowl of cereal, especially when it’s sprinkled with sweet marshmallows or encrusted in a sugary coating. When I was younger the only way my mother could get me to go grocery shopping with her was if I was able to pick out a box to call my own. Truth be told, I only ever went for the ones that included a special toy or mail-in coupon to get a little trinket delivered to my door in 8 to 10 weeks. Even if I didn’t particularly love the cereal itself, the toy was all I cared about because there was nothing better than the thrill of digging through the box to find a hidden treasure. When I wasn’t picking all of the marshmallows out of my Lucky Charms I was strategically planning how I could salvage the mangled box that I ripped open as soon as walked in the door. Let’s just say there were quite a few boxes of stale cereal hidden in the pantry before anyone noticed.

When Toodie was born she had a full head of jet black hair that quickly formed into tight curls when she became a toddler. I was thrilled that she inherited her father’s curly hair instead of my own. Mine has always been a mixture of wavy and straight, the kind that HAS to be washed and styled everyday to look decent. Luckily, Toodie has been blessed with a head of beautiful healthy hair. While those tight ringlets only lasted a few short years before her first real hair cut, today she has loose curls that tend to get tangled easily. SoCozy products at Target have helped transform the unwanted knots and rat nests back to smooth bouncy locks.

This Easter, create a one of a kind basket for your Frozen princess!
Today I had the pleasure of spending time with 18 incredible Kindergartners who love to create and craft just as much as I do. My daughter’s class had an early Thanksgiving celebration and to continue the theme myself and two other moms set up mini activity stations for the kids afterwards. These included learning activities and hands on projects. At my station I was in charge of the Paper Plate Turkey. This little craft was so popular that I decided to share it on my blog as well. During the holidays I really love to use paper plates to create festive decorations so it wasn’t hard coming up with something special for the kids to make. This colorful turkey is SO easy to make and fun to dress up. Perfect craft for home and the classroom.

It’s getting chilly out! Have you started shopping for your little one’s winter wardrobe? Last week I took a trip to The Children’s PLACE for a look at their new holiday trends and get a few things to add a little sparkle to Toodie’s closet. By some miracle we have had a lot of unexpected cooler weather here in Florida this month so I really needed to stock up on a few long sleeve t-shirts and skinny jeans. Tank tops, skorts, and sandals are gonna have to hit the back burner for a little while. Not that I am complaining. I would take crisp cold weather over sunshine any day!

I learned a long time ago that becoming a parent meant having to combine girl’s night in with play dates and our little ones. Five years later and it’s become more that second nature to myself and my friends who do have children. For those of them that don’t they will one day learn that “girl’s night” now means pizza, animated movies, and painting tiny nails while singing along to the Frozen soundtrack.

A couple of weeks ago on the blog I talked a little bit about my struggle with Toodie’s hair and the challenges I faced as mom who never acquired the gift of styling. Now that it’s all out in the open I might as well share a few more products that at least help me keep it looking presentable on a daily basis. After all, I am not the mom that sends her child to school with bed head or a rat’s nest which looks like it could be harboring a living creature of some sort. Today I will be introducing you to a children’s haircare line known as SoCozy. It’s So Smart, So Safe, So Easy, and So Cool. It also provides the tools to help embrace your child’s hair- curly, wavy, short, frizzy, straight, CRAZY, confused and so on.

Did you know that dehydration affects nearly 75% of Americans? Adults and children included. Staying hydrated is important for everyone, especially when you are active throughout the day. Whether you are taking a jog through the park, chasing your kids around the house, or recovering from a stomach bug- you need to replenish your body’s fluids. Typically a big glass of water is always a thirst quencher BUT it can be boring on its own. After all, water is just that… water. It doesn’t have to be boring though. This is where a new revolutionary product, DripDrop, changes the concept of that plain glass of H2O.
