The Jungle Book, a re-imagined favourite {Review}

The Jungle Book

Growing up, my favourite movies were always classic Disney ones. In fact, my mom still has many of my favourite movies stashed away still on VHS in the garage I’m sure. One of my all-time favourites was the original Jungle Book movie, this dated back years before I was even born but something drew me to the adventures of Mowgli, and my favourite bear Baloo.

Now you can enjoy Mowgli’s daring adventures in a brand new, live-action epic adventure – all on Disney Blue-Ray + DVD.

Having great nights with GoodNites + #Giveaway!

GoodNites Potty Training

Potty training can be…well, a bit of an adventure, even with an easily trained child. There are the inevitable accidents, the dashing to the nearest public bathroom (or bush), and extra laundry. It’s a lot of baby steps, this potty training gig, but eventually, they get it in their own time and become masters of daytime elimination; learning to listen to their body’s signals, manage their clothes and proper hygiene. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel with just one more things to conquer: night-time training.

Just as kids become daytime trained at different ages (my daughter was 18 mos, my son 4), night training will happen on their own schedule. It’s a few more baby steps, but GoodNites brand has a complete line of nighttime products to help everyone #RestEasyTonight. All GoodNites have added protection to support each stage of their continued development and help boost their confidence; not to mention reducing the laundry!

Celebrating all things Fall at the AppleBarn! + #Giveaway

Taves Family Farms Applebarn

Fall, leading in to Winter is when our family seems to have the most “traditions” – we have things that we do every single Halloween, and Christmas! With October just sneaking up on us we knew we had to make a trip to one of our favourite pumpkin patches to celebrate all things Fall! 3 years ago I discovered the Taves Family Applebarn on a whim suggestion from a friend when we had nothing else to do, suffice to say my mind was blown – how was there SO MUCH to do in one area!?
