I'm in the midst of planning a cooking birthday party for my daughter, so I definitely have food on the brain (more than usual). So when a copy of The Great Lollipop Caper landed on my desk, I admitted to being a little more than curious. After reading the book jacket and learning the gist of the plot (the evil Mr. Caper vows to teach the kids of the world to love capers as much as they love lolli... Read MoreComments (0)
If my 3rd grader attaches another object to her backpack, I swear she's going to keel over. She makes a personal statement while bringing her belongings to school, simply by switching out what's dangling off the zippers: a flipflop keychain, a translucent dolphin, a Beanie Boo...you name it. Attachable collectibles is definitely trending with tweens, and that's why I knew when I got my hands on th... Read MoreComments (0)
Today, my almost 5-year-old had kindergarten orientation, and couldn't have been more excited (or me for her). After visiting a kindergarten classroom, meeting the principal and taking a spin around the school on a bus, she would have happily begun school today! Luckily I have a few months to prepare myself (read: stock up on Kleenex) and so does she. Before we leave the fun world of preschool, it... Read MoreComments (0)
In a few short months, the wait will be over. We'll finally be able to "meet" Kate and William's royal bundle of joy. As people around the world speculate on what name the couple will decide upon and who the godparents will be, our thoughts are focused on more "important" things: Like what stroller they'll be using and what clothes the new babe will be dressed in. That being sa... Read MoreComments (0)

When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I knew I wanted an old-fashioned pram in which to parade my new little love around town. By the time my second daughter arrived on the scene, I had grown weary of the neutral-colored baby gear I had acquired along the way. Sure, a cream-colored bouncy seat may have fit into my traditional home decor, while a steel grey car seat meshed well with my car's... Read MoreComments (0)
It's just been a week since the Boston Marathon bombings, but it feels so much longer. We're all still spiraling from the aftermath of Sandy Hook, Hurricane Sandy...and now this. My next-door neighbor was one of the marathon runners who bravely set out that day, looking forward to attaining a personal goal, and not realizing that reuniting with her loved ones, safe and unharmed, would be a far mor...

My car is in desperate need of a wash. After too many months of wet weather, muddy feet and the like, this mom taxi has taken quite a beating. Of course, the line at our local car wash has been five miles long lately. If only my imagination could transport to the pages of the latest picture book to cross my desk. Down at the Dino Wash Deluxe is the place to be, especially if you happen to live wit... Read MoreComments (0)
When my husband was invited to choose some used books from a colleague's retired collection, he brought home a treasure trove of reading materials. Among his findings was a well-worn copy of a guide to seashells, one that had yellowed with age and whose pages were slowly losing their binding. While it was the thought that counted, we wound up recycling the book after a cursory look-through-and lon... Read MoreComments (0)
Still trying to come to the grips with yesterday's tragedy in Boston, I had a hard time getting myself in writing mode this morning. But after dropping my daughter off at preschool and seeing all those happy, little faces, I found the motivation I was looking for. If reviewing kids' products and working in the children's industry isn't a sign of hope and rejuvenation, I don't know what is. It was... Read MoreComments (1)
My 4-year-old just got invited to another Hello Kitty party. This is one cat that gets around-and I'm not talking about my daughter! Last week, we told you about a Hello Kitty rain gear line that definitely put a much-needed spring in our step, especially after a long, cold winter. We knew that little girls would be all over that line...but now we're finding that Hello Kitty has new mom appeal, to... Read MoreComments (0)
