We brought this camera on our cruise fully intending to put it through rigorous testing while snorkeling on Castaway Cay.  Unfortunately the ocean was a bit too chilly to spend any length of time in, so like the sissies we are...we tried it out using the ship's pool and hot tub, lol!

Shirts That Go

Whenever a semi-truck barrels down the highway and my nephew is looking out the window, his eyes get just a bit bigger.  My sister's living room floor is littered with them, the trailers hauling all kinds of imagined cargo.  Once that little boy is tucked in for the night right next to him - on the pillow - are those precious toy trucks.

Seriously this tiny tike is so into trucks, that when you ask him his name, he replies in full, except when saying his last name, he adds "trucks" on to the ending of it.

So besides buying more trucks for him for gifts, what do you get a kid that is enthralled with something that goes?  Because we all either have one of our own, or know one.  Well you could get them a unique t-shirt from Shirts That Go.  Planes, trucks and train t-shirts are a part of this line of tees that appeal to kids that love vehicles.

Handy Manny Big Race

Handy Manny is a hot show among the pre-school crowd.  Probably because Handy Manny is just the kind of guy you'd like to be pals with.  He's friendly, his neighborhood is great, and he can fix anything (hence his name).  Do your little ones like to pretend they are repairing things right along with Manny when they watch?

Guess what?  Handy Manny has an all new show coming up: "Handy Manny Big Race" this Saturday, March 20th, at 7PM/6C on The Disney Channel.

Pistachio DVD - Veggie Tales Review

Big Idea EntertainmentThe characters in this DVD are familiar to most; an Italian toymaker Gelato (Larry the Cucumber) and his assistant Cricket (Khalil the Caterpillar).  Gelato has no family (with the exception of some ducklings) to call his own and after receiving a piece of pistachio wood, carves himself a son; Pistachio (Junior Asparagus).

Little Pistachio however, does not want to listen to Gelato his father and gets himself entangled into a whole lot of trouble.

Combining the classic tale of Pinocchio and the parable of The Lost Sheep from the Bible, Pistachio is a lesson filled DVD about the importance of listening to your parents.

EvoraKids Giveaway - First Oral Care Pro-biotic for Children

Oral care is a very important topic to me.  I am not a big fan of the dentist and so anything that makes those twice a year visits easier on me and my family has my attention.  With Amber having braces there is that much more concern for the teeth to be as clean as possible too.

I recently learned about EvoraKids - the first pro-biotic oral care system for children ages 3-10.  A chewable tablet, taken twice a day after brushing, helps to keep bacteria from dental plaque at bay.

Reading is Fundamental - Help Save Funding For It

By all the book reviews you see on my site, I'm sure you figured out I love reading.  I also think reading is important. 

Amber has always been a reluctant reader, but I know how important reading is, especially for young brains that are developing.  I've always made her read even when she has not wanted to, and by finding books that interest her, have made it a somewhat (I hope) enjoyable experience.
