Trying to stay healthy this year?  Or maybe getting a jump on the New Year resolution and starting your heatlhy eating now.  Either way finding great Natural Products in a grocery story can be a mission of futility.  I know when I'm grabbing the Pampers I hate having to look on all the shelves in each aisle I go in to see if their is a natural product to replace my usual non-natural product.  So, where do you go for Natural Products?

Elmo Review

Last Sunday we got the amazing chance to see one of my kids favorite shows on stage, Elmo!  As we pulled into the parking garage my daughter surprised me by asking if we were going to see the big red dog.  We had seen Clifford at the same Theater about a month ago and she remembered even the parking garage enough to ask!  I told her that he had gone home, but that we were going to see Elmo instead. We got there early and found our seats, the stage was all light up and so were the kids!

Head-dress full of Thanks!

If you think about thanksgiving you have to remember the kindness offered on that day.  The pilgrims were in need of food and were unprepared for the weather of the season.  The Native Americans offered a feast to them which helped them service.  In memory of that kindness we decided to make head-dress.  Many Native American tribes created headdresses specific to their culture.  The items on the head dress had meaning and gave a message about the person wearing it.  So, I combined the idea of making something special and giving thanks into one!

LivyBelt™ Review

You know what I hate about clothes shopping for Christmas?  It's the same thing I hate when shopping for the kid's clothes regardless of time of year.  Finding something to fit my kids height that won't fall off!  This year, I think a little something will be put under the tree to help me with this problem. 

Tooth-fairy Storybook Set Review

This Christmas will come just weeks before my son turns 2 and of course that means I'll be setting up his first dental appointment.  To help prepare I thought it would be good to get a few items to help introduce him to the idea and thinking more about his teeth.  I love it when a need and review opportunity come together!

Where are you getting the iphone products on your list?

I don't have an iphone, but it seems like everyone I know does, so easy shopping is to nab some supplies for the iphone pack in my life.  The trick is to get something that others wouldn't think of, but once in their hand they would wonder why it isn't on their list.  First issue, find a place to get iphone products from.  Now, I could just go to a store, but they are so over priced, so in my normal deal seeking fashion I head online!

Why not give the gift of something amazing this year?

Looking for an awesome event the whole family will enjoy?  Get your tickets to the Harlem Globetrotters brand new "You Write the Rules" tour.  Your family's smiles will start before you even get to the game as the Globetrotters take kid participation to a whole NEW level.  

Step 2 Kitchen Giveaway

Boy or Girl all kids want to be in the kitchen either to eat or help cook.  Most will love the chance to pretend to cook while you cook and I would imagine you would get a huge smile with this under the tree (or next to it)!  Dress up clothes, super hero capes, and simple pots and pans can all be fun toys through the imaginative eyes of a child. When you add those elements to a super fun play space, you could soon find your child occupied for hours.

Time for a new family tradition, lace up those shoes!

The holidays are coming and family will soon flood the house, so what do you do with them?  Why not take a page from your own childhood and go bowling!  This way you don't have to cook or clean up after everyone and they will have a blast and memories to laugh about next year! 

Memory Can

It is so hard to find the perfect vacation souvenir.  Often they cost a lot and break quickly or you end up with a closet or dresser of shirts that say I went here.  While I like getting the occasional shirt, they aren't something I want an entire closet of.  So, I try to think of better ways to take home vacation memories.  A few years ago I went to the Black Hills with the husband and we got a few bottles of wine and while on a hike I took a grocery bag of dirt from a river bed home to fill the bottles.  While we all know about putting sand in a bottle to remember a special trip, maybe adding a candle to the top if we feel it's right, but what else can we create from our collection?

Cool mom product site! Check this out!

LilyPadz, Lily Padz Silicone Nursing Pads can someone tell me where these where when I was nursing?  I don't know about you but I had these cloth things that sometimes got stuck to the lanolin or if I slept to long the raw spots and then had to be painfully peeled off!  Yuck and ouch so when I saw these my first thought was unfair!  Why did I get stuck with the painful ones?  

Pamper your Plants with some at home treats!

Kylie Minogue, "The Abbey Road Sessions" Review

Kylie Minogue just released her newest album, "The Abbey Road Sessions".   I was recorded in London's legendary Abbey Road Studios with her band and a full orchestra for some of the tracks.  I imagine the studio is the inspiration for the name of the album, but it could also be that the album is 16 of her classic songs re-imaged and re-arranged.  Check out what I think of Kylie's Latest album.

Cat-Cows Pose or Marjariasana

Each week, 2-3 days, we do a 15 minute yoga work out in my home daycare. Kids from 1 1/2 to 5 do this and while each does as much as they are able and in a way they are capable of they all get a nice stretch, a scheduled work out time, and some fun new body movements. We do the sun salutations and then add a few jumps, hops, new yoga poseand teacher assisted somersaults at the end. In doing these poses always consult a doctor first, only attempt what is in your child’s ability level, and do what is comfortable for your and their body.  Today we worked on Cat-Cows Pose or Marjariasana.

These are only suggestions and like any exercise you and your children try them at your own risk, I am not there to show you and see what your body is saying so I can only offer these on a very basic level. Make sure to wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in, have a yoga mat to work on, and do not wear socks because of the risk of slipping!  Lastly, always remember to smile and never go past what your capable of and don't push a kid to go past what they are capable.  

I suggest starting with other poses before doing this one, forward folds, warrior, and cobra are a few good postures to try before starting.  Make sure your kids are warmed up before doing this pose.  Start by having the kids stand with their feet slightly apart.  Have them reach up to the sky, pretending to gather the sun rays to keep for winter, now ride a breeze and dive down to your toes!  Bend your knees until your bottom hangs just off the ground, rib-bit and hop a few times like a frog. Now, with your hands flat on the ground put one knee back then the other to make a flat table top!  With out bending your arms or moving your legs try to touch your belly to the floor and give a moo like a cow!  Bring the air in and arch your back to the ceiling with a hiss like a cat!  Repeat again a few more time's before coming back to the table top!  Now straighten your legs and give a breath, step each foot to your hands and tickle your toes for a good laugh.  Now, reach up for a few more sun rays bringing you to a stand.  Exhale your hands down the middle slowly pushing the air out one last time. Then thank you for your practice because politeness is key and we should be thankful of the movement our bodies provide us!
