VTech InnoTab Max - Built to Grow With Your Child {Giveaway}


Today it's all about my big brother Mikael. If you're a regular reader you know that Mikael is autistic. He actually just turned 10, yes he had a birthday a week ago but he has the mental capacity of a 6 year old. So when VTech asked me to do a review of their InnoTab Max, I thought that this would be perfect for my big brother Mikael. After all it also makes a great birthday gift too. The VTech InnoTab Max is designed for children ages 3-9 and is their newest tablet with an Android operating system. It is also one of the fastest tablets that VTech has currently for kids and retails at $109.99.

Welcome to Tooby Doo New York

Welcome to another Fashion Friday! We had to take a break because of the snow we've been having in our lovely state of Colorado.  I actually said that in my most sarcastic voice. Mommy and I love taking our fashion pics outdoors so having snow was really a bummer for us. While it's fun doing product reviews for toys indoors, fashion should be shared with the world, and outdoors always look so much better. At least I think so. Today I want to bring to you a new company that mommy and I found just recently. I bring to you, Tooby Doo New York! It can be difficult at times finding fashion that speaks to you. When you're a child that difficulty becomes even more so. While mommy and I certainly believe in dressing a toddler or even an older child in age appropriate clothes, sometimes we also want to keep it simple. Sure I love the designs and the fruits and flowers and even animals on my clothing, but sometimes I just want to stand out. That's where Tooby Doo New York comes in.

Your kids would really enjoy making our Thanksgiving Pretzel Turkey treats, and you'll create a memory that you both will remember for a very long time. You can even start a Thanksgiving tradition. After all nothing says Thanksgiving better than a Turkey.

Here is what you'll need:

Can you believe we're only a week away from Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving is a big deal in our household and I try and include the kids in whatever activities that we have planned for that day. Whether your kids are barely toddling around or are old enough to do some of the actual cooking, they can be involved in the Thanksgiving meal preparations. It may take a little longer to cook the meal if you enlist the help of the young kids, but the rewards far outweigh the inconvenience of having the kids in the kitchen with you. Here are 3 tips for Tips for Cooking Thanksgiving Meal with your Kids.

Have a Ho-Ho-Ho Happy Holiday at Gymboree


I'm not going to say it again because you already know that I just truly love Gymboree. OK I just had to say it again. Can you really blame me? When Gymboree introduced their new theme "The Best Time to be a Kid", I just know that they were talking about me. There is no greater time than now to be a kid. We have so much going for us and one of those things is shopping at Gymboree. With the Holidays coming up there are lots to be done. Dinners to be taken care of, holiday photos to be taken. Speaking of holiday photos there is no place better to shop for those outfits than at Gymboree. Mommy and I decided to take a trip to find the perfect holiday dress and once again we weren't disappointed.
