Duck On A Disco Ball Book Tour

Posted on October 30, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

My 7 year old, son, loves Duck On A Disco Ball.  We have read it every night, for the last week.  He’s been home sick, from school, and this gave us something to read.  Who would’ve imagined he’d get an illness and be home for 4 days.  I’ve read it to him numerous times, and he’s gone to sleep while I’ve read it.  He’s also read, and followed along, as well.  He’s a very smart boy, but the way this book is written, is superb.

Every night it’s the same old story.  A boy wants to stay up late, and his parents won’t let him.  But sometimes in the morning, he notices things look  a little off – like when he wees a disco ball in the kitchen . . . with his toy duck on it.  So one night he diecides to stay up.  And that’s when the fun really begins.

Silliness builds with each page of this high-energy, pun-filled companion to Duck in the Fridge until the moment when sleep eventually takes hold and morning arrives once more.

 

You’ll love this book, as much as your kids will.  Once my son has had enough, I’m going to send it to school with my daughter, who is teaching.  The kids will love it.

Perfect Iron/Steamer for multiple use

Posted on October 28, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

 

I love my Reliable Iron/Steamer.  I’ve not skipped a beat, using it.  I love how I can steam, while clothes are hanging, and iron, while clothes are laying.  This iron/steamer is the coolest thing I’ve come across, in a while.  When I go on trips, it’s small and compact enough to take with me.  When I’m home, it’s perfect to iron with.  I can take the clothes right out of the dryer, and hang, and steam.  This is the perfect little tool.  I haven’t used a product so much, in a long time.

Meet the mini multi-tasker. It’s an iron. It’s a steamer. It’s both! But don’t be fooled by its charm. This portable powerhouse travels light and takes out wrinkles without taking up space.

My mom wants a Reliable OVO now, so guess what she’s getting for Christmas.  This is the perfect gift, for your avid ironer.  She irons everything, and this will make it easy on her back.  When she takes the clothes out of the dryer, and hangs them, she can go ahead and steam them.  She will love this inexpensive, but powerful gift.  She’s been around, when I’ve used mine, and specifically asked for one.  You will love it this much too.

Posted on October 28, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

While National Coffee Day has come and gone, you can still get that perfect cup of coffee, from a great brand.

Melitta will get you that perfect cup of coffee.  I love my Melitta!  This system is awesome.  I make my coffee with Melitta everyday.  My husband loves it so much, we’ve had to buy a second one.  My 21 year old, daughter, is getting one for Christmas.  This nifty little system has us all going crazy.

Tips to a better cup:

How fresh the coffee you are using is just as important as the overall quality of the coffee. Coffee that is freshly roasted and stored properly produces a superior cup.

Go Organically for After School Activity Snacks

Posted on October 28, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide

We love Go Organically, in our home.  Whether it be for a snack, or an After School Activity Snack, it is just as delicious.  My 7 year old will eat them, like they are going out of style.  My 21 year old loves them too.  With Go Organically, you can’t go wrong.  And, they are a healthy snack as well.

Go Organically has some great tips for you, for the school season, just keep reading below:

School’s back in session—and so are after-school activities! From soccer to singing to scouting, there’s certainly no shortage of kid-centric extracurricular programs where you can spend your time and hard-earned cash. But how do you know which ones are right for your kid? We’re here to help you find out!

Gauge Their Interests

The best activity for your kid is the one they’re interested in. Older kids are likely to be drawn to what their friends are trying. Toddlers and younger kids may have trouble articulating what they want to try, but there are sure to be clues to look out for. Are they constantly running around? Maybe soccer would be a good fit. Do they like to bop along to the radio in the car? Perhaps they’d appreciate a music class.

Consider Their Personality

Have a shy kid who hides behind mama when meeting new people? An acting class probably isn’t the best idea. As tempting as it can be to use activities to help break kids out of their shell, it’s best to stick with classes that align with a kid’s authentic spirit. The more comfortable they are, the more confident they’ll be—which will hopefully lead to a willingness to try new things later on.

  • Individual Activities

Independent-minded kids tend to enjoy individual sports, such as gymnastics, tennis, dance or martial arts. Non-sport options could include private lessons in music or art. Benefits of these types of activities include building self-esteem, motor skills and attention/focus.

  • Group Activities

Socially-minded kids often prefer the camaraderie of team sports, such as soccer, basketball or hockey. Non-sport options could include scouting troops or theater arts. These types of activities emphasize teamwork, communication and discipline.

Take Advantage of Free Trial Classes

Once you’ve narrowed down your options, see if you can “try before you buy” with a free trial class. Many program facilitators understand that kids can be finicky creatures, with a passion for tap one day and taekwondo the next. And it’s a good idea to decide as a family before the program starts whether you’ll let your kiddo quit before the session is over if they don’t enjoy it or ask them to stick it out to the end to honor their commitment.

Think About Your Schedule

How many activities are too many? Well, that depends on the family and the child. Some kids have the interest and energy to take a bunch of different classes while others may feel overscheduled and stressed. Budget and work timetables can also be a factor. Only you can know what’s right for your family, so trust your gut and enjoy the ride!

When shuttling kids around to activities, be sure to take along Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks. Made with real fruit and no artificial colors, our gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free kids snacks are individually packaged for on-the-go convenience. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for kid-friendly ideas and inspiration!

The producers are John DeLuca, p.g.a., Rob Marshall, p.g.a. and Marc Platt, p.g.a. with Callum McDougall serving as executive producer. The music score is by Marc Shaiman and the film features all new original songs with music by Shaiman and lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman. The film also stars Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and introducing Joel Dawson as the Banks’ children, with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes, Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.
