The Poli Cup ~ GIVEAWAY!

The sippy cup. It sounds so simple, so easy…and so useful, however, through my last 8 years of parenting we’ve found that the world of “sippy cups” can be much more difficult than one would imagine. We’ve tried our fair share of sippy cups in the past eight years, and have loved some and thrown out others. We’ve tried ones that really we easy to use, and ones that took much to long to take apart, clean and put back together. We’ve found a few sippy cups that have been leak-proof, and quite a few that weren’t.

Easter is a time of year that I look forward to each year. First off, it is a time of year that is very meaningful to our family…and second of all – it means that Spring is here and the snow is on it’s way out and the warm weather is on it’s way in!!

Scholastic Monday ~ Pyjama Day!

I love it when my kids are reading a book on their own and they burst into spontaneous giggles or laughter! OR I also love it when I am reading a book to them and we all start laughing over a funny part in the story. There’s something about a funny story and about sharing a good laugh together that bonds us together – even if “all” we are doing is reading a book together. I love seeing our children enjoy reading and laughing as they read the silly parts in the book. There is one author that never fails to get some giggles out of our kids (and sometimes even out of us parents) as we read the outrageous and humorous stories that he writes.

It’s Time to Get Cooking!

I don’t know about your household, but in ours we’re starting to get antsy…we’re starting to REALLY lose interest in all the normal indoor activities and I hear the question “How many more days until summer?” many times these days. However, the snow is not quite gone yet and neither is the cool weather so although the kids go out to play for an hour here or there, we still need to find something fun and exciting to do inside while we wait for the time when we can spend the WHOLE day out in the sun.

An EGGstraordinary Easter! #KinderMom

Winter seemed to go by faster than usual this year for us. I’m not sure why…maybe because Spring has sprung a little earlier than usual in the prairies this year? Regardless, we are LOVING the fact that the snow is melting, there are puddles all around and we’ve even taken our bikes out of the shed and have enjoyed some bike rides around the block!

Spring, Jump & Skip with GeoSpace! ~ GIVEAWAY!!

I don’t know about you, but in our house we THRILLED that spring and summer are just around the corner. I’ve been questioned many times already on “How many days is it until Summer?!” My answer? Summer is here whenever the snow melts…and here in the Canadian prairies that can happen in March or it can happen in May. 😉 Thankfully, this year it looks like it is going to happen in March! Either way, nothing can stop us from dreaming about summer weather and about all the fun outdoor activities that we’ll be able to enjoy soon.

The LEGO Movie has been a huge hit for kids this past year – and judging from our own kids’ reactions, it is has been particularly exciting for young boys! Our eight year old son has loved all thing Lego since he was about 5 years old, so The Lego Movie was something that he really enjoyed. He’s learned all of the characters names, and enjoys reading any reading material he can find on the movie…especially some of the newest readers from DK Canada!

The Right Bite Size ~ GIVEAWAY!

I will estimate that I could spend at least 20 minutes a day (and this is just at mealtimes) cutting foods into bite sized pieces. With 5 kids ages 8 and under, it seems that there are always at least several kids that need their food cut into smaller pieces and it can really be quite time consuming!
