Fit or Fat

Let's face it...those seem to be the two categories we place ourselves in...and if you feel like I do after having a baby, it's not the Fit category I'm looking at. But I also can't be bothered to do any exercising......

Is Denise Austin still around? Seriously. She was kicking butt way back before I had kids. I remember being quite overambitious, buying her pregnancy work out dvd. After one try it stayed on the shelf and collected dust for a very long time. I pulled it out, waaayyyy post-pregnancy and I STILL couldn't keep up. She's crazy-fit!

Anyway...she's still at it and here is her latest. Maybe it's worth a try?

Denise Austin - Get Fit, Tight and Toned!

Water Fun

We all loved the creation of Baby Einstein. It actually allowed us to set the child in front of the boob-tube and not feel guilty about it!
I really like new toys for the bath so couldn't help but scoop up this Baby Einstein™: Scoop, Pour & Discovery Toy.

Of course, after a few uses the little monster will realize that the water can just as easily be poured out of the tub and onto the floor to make, yet another, "lake". Fun times.

You can grab this great toy, and maybe another for a gift, at And this little tidbit just came in...

Plugged In

We have tested another cool and genius product. I found a MOBster with a 7 year old son and she said these earphones were superb!

First, they are smaller than typical earphones, so they fit the kiddos ears perfectly than adult size earphones and are comfortable to wear. And since kids like to pump up the music, these earphones are the first of their kind - they help prevent long-term hearing damage due to their outer ear design. AirDrives are approved for all day listening even at max volume so you can be confident your kids ears are safe.

And we can't forget to mention, these beauties let your child remain aware of life's surroundings... meaning your darling son can't say he didn't hear you when you told him to clean up his room. Or more importanly he can hear a car coming behind him while riding his bike.

They also make AirDrives for adults, perfect for outdoor activities, on the airplane & working out. You can pick you pair up at Best Buy & Amazon. These aren't your typical earphones, so expect to pay a little more for premium earphones. Save your kids ears and still enjoy music while living life!

Vacation Baby!

My mental list had failed me once again! I meant to let you know that the Blog was going to be on vacation for the week while we took our Prince out of town. However in the chaos of packing and making sure everything was taken care of, I forgot to post a vacation notice. I'm sorry, but I'm sure you busy mama's can relate. Next week, I will have some new reviews of some cool products, so be sure to check back.

Enjoy your weekend!

Sleepy Head

Yawn. Stretch. Yawn. Crack open an eye. Check the clock. Yawn. Ughh - it's not even 6am!
The Prince has awoke already.

I would place bets that my darling son has some sort of super power to know when I go to bed late. On an average morning he will wake at 7 or 7:30 am. However, the nights I go to bed after midnight, he wakes up at the crack of dawn the next day, every time! Coincidence or not?

I'll never know, but one thing is for sure... I'll be ready for a nap today too!

All Aboard

Excitement is building, grandma is coming and we are all gearing up. We are taking our little train lover to A Day Out with Thomas this weekend. If you have a Thomas the Tank Engine fan under your roof, you might already know Thomas is making stops all across the country. Just check the website for a location near you and to buy tickets.
This will be our first experience and we can't wait to explore all the fun there is to be had at A Day Out with Thomas. The event provides an opportunity for kids to take a 25 minute ride on board a train led by Thomas and have their pictures taken with Sir Topham Hatt, the Controller of Thomas' Railway. Also, extra fun with Thomas videos, story time, temporary tattoos & Legos!
I'm sure the look on our little tike's face will be priceless when he see the life-size Thomas on Friday. If you are in the Kansas City area, click here to see ticket availability for this weekend and next.
