Cheeky Monkey Peanut Butter Puffs = perfect first food! + #Giveaway!

Cheeky Monkey Peanut Butter Puffs

Guidelines for child safety (and nearly everything really) have changed a lot over the years. When I think about my childhood vs my parenthood, piling into the bed of a truck to cruise to the beach vs strapping everyone in to their booster seats I give my head a shake at how times have changed. Even between the births of my own children I saw many new guidelines, like extended rear facing, but these changes were not limited to car-seats and toys (walkers anyone?). New studies, technology and accidents bring about changes all the time, including to first food guidelines.

At first Cheeky Monkey looks like the average baby puffs that are out on the market, but when you look closer, you’ll see that they are made with peanut butter. Peanut butter?? As a baby’s first food?  New research says absolutely! Cheeky Monkey is here, not only to fill a void in the infant snack world, but to help spread the word about these new findings and hopefully be able to spare some children from growing up with nut and other food allergies.

Ring in the New Year with Netflix (and relax!) #StreamTeam

Netflix New Year

It has been one heck of a year – and I don’t know about you but I am about ready to close up 2016 and move on to a brand new 2017! New Years Eve sure has changed considerably since I had kids though, when I was younger I was out until all hours, enjoying champagne, playing games and making fun New Years Resolutions with my friends – now with kids? I’m struggling to stay awake until midnight and know that that sweet little voice is still going to wake me up at 8am, regardless of what time she went to bed at!

Netflix knows our struggle well and is sharing some fun ways to kick off the New Year – and still catch some extra zzz’s! Continue reading →

Playmobil holiday fun for everyone! #BCMOMHGG

Playmobil Stockings

With nieces and nephews to buy for as well as A, I am always on the hunt for gift items that can be given to everyone – mostly to help eliminate multiple trips to the mall! One of our my favourite gifts to receive as a kid was always oldschool Playmobil and I was so pleasantly surprised to discover as I got older that not only is Playmobil still a leader in the toy industry, they also have some fun new lines that are sure to help you check everyone off your Christmas list!

Star Wars The Force Awakens RC BB-8 rolls into our hearts #BCMOMHGG

Force Awakens RC BB-8

When we watched Star Wars the Force Awakens, we couldn’t help but fall in love with the new spunky spherical droid, BB-8. WE still have much love and deep affection for C-3PO and R2-D2, but there’s something about little BB-8 and the way he moves with his bobbing little head that is actually pretty endearing. When the Star Wars The Force Awakens RC BB-8 was released by Hasbro,  it was instantly a hot, and hard to find, toy on many wish lists. I had no doubts at all that it was on my family’s wish list too after our family movie night!
