Growing up I listened to all the popular music that hit the radio, even if it wasn’t always appropriate. My mother would scoff at the idea of radio stations playing music that didn’t always sensor the “bad words” from their lyrics. Which is why when Kidz Bop came to stores that offered the same sound and song but with an edited version for children to listen to. Continue reading
My family and I don’t have cable TV, but we do have Netflix, and Hulu that we can stream on. I was afraid that by not having cable TV my children wouldn’t have as much of a selection of education TV. Boy was I wrong, and happily so, my son always manages to really enjoy the PBS Kids shows and for that I am thankful. There are lots of options for educational television with PBS Kids, and one of them is Wild Kratts. The Kratt Brothers is an award-winning entertainment company focusing on television and interactive digital media production. Continue reading

My 6 year old son “grew up” watching Caillou. I think he loved watching Caillou learn all sorts of real life things. As a child, he could relate to a lot if not most of the situations on the cartoon. Caillou Helps Out is a 7 episode DVD that brings to light the concept of working together, and being aware of others feelings. Continue reading

I wanted to take a moment and wish a wonderful Happy Mother’s Day to all my readers who happen to be a mom! Also a Happy Mother’s Day too all the Fathers taking on the role of being a Mom and Dad. Often times when we’re asked what we’d like for Mother’s Day we all have that ideal day planned out in our head. I know that a lot of us mothers out there would love to sleep in and wake up to breakfast in bed. Some would prefer to be pampered all day at a spa with their mothers, or girlfriends. You might have your own traditions set in place that you’ve developed over the years. You might plant a spring garden with your mom, or grandma. Whatever it is you choose to do today I hope you take the time to hold your babies close and thank them for giving you the best gift of all. Having the honor of being called mom is something I wouldn’t trade for the world! While talking with my own mother today she reminded me that the Mother’s Day while my kids are young are truly the best ones. The ones where they still only see the best in you, the ones where your mistakes and failures are still easily cured and fixed with hugs and kisses. I much rather have something home made that my 6 year old son makes me than something store bought that every mother in America could receive.
So in closing, I hope you all had the Mother’s Day you wanted and can look back and cherish for years to come! I would love to know what you did on your special day, though everyday as a Mother is truly special! Please let me know what you got, or did today, I’d love to hear all about it.
Over the last several years I’ve come to realize that rather than store-bought gifts I adore handmade items. It might come from the satisfaction I get when I personally create something by hand, and see it all come together. Taking materials and reusing them to make something that someone can love and treasure forever. That’s what Margee Barth when she created her company/brand GreenBleez! Continue reading
