  • BabyBlankets.com Review @BabyBlanketsCom #babyblankets

    If I was ever asked what was the best gift I had received when my kids were born, I'd say their blankets! Since birth my kids have taken their blankets (blankies as we call them) EVERYWHERE and I mean everywhere.

    In my opinion the best baby blankets you can receive are ones that are personalized. My daughter had received one that had her name. In the long run that helped her not only learn her name but also spell it. My kids blankets have seen Detroit, Texas, Florida, Chicago, etc. The kids are now 4 and 5 and still take the blanket everywhere for security. They didn't use pacifiers or anything but the blanket must be there (even if it has to stay in the car)

    The point of this post is to share a great store called BabyBlankets.com. They make unique and beautiful gifts for every occasion, every look and every child. All children need to have the comfort of their own blanket. I'm going on 29 and still take my blanket with me while traveling and have to have it every night.

    Click the link to view my choice of best baby blankets and I assure you will fall in love with something from the site. The unbelievably soft Dottie Snuggle Blanket is one of my favs for sure!

    4 Reasons Why Kids Need to put Down Video Games This Summer - Guest Post By Jeremy Dixon

    I wrote a Summer Bucket list for teens a week or so ago and Jeremy Dixon  wanted to go into more detail on ONE OF THEM . Thanks you  Jeremy Dixon  for your guest post, the tips are great =)
     
     
     
      4 Reasons Why Kids Need to put Down Video Games This Summer
     

    Summer is basically here and for kids, that means freedom and oh yeah! VIDEO GAMES! Kids are going to have so much free time on their hands that they will not know what to do with themselves. If the XBOX and Playstation will be in full use by your children this summer, then this is article for you. I am going to touch on 4 reasons why kids need to put down video games and get out the house this summer.

    Get Out and Socialize!


    The summer is a great time for the kids to go out and meet new friends or hang out with the ones from school or the neighborhood. The friends on XBOX Live and PSN, while cool, do not count! Having your friends around or meeting new people this summer is a great way to build upon experiences and memories that will be treasured for life. When kids are cooped up inside playing video games all day, they will tend to become more anti-social and miss out on all the cool and awesome things that are taking place during the summer.

    Stop Playing Video Games and Get Active


    One of the problems with sitting down and playing video games all day is that there is little to no chance of exercise taking place. Hours upon hours will be spent in front of the television screen and you can be sure that the only movements will be the clicking of buttons, the occasional bathroom break and oh yea….the trod to get food! If this is a common routine when the kids are off from school, there is a chance that they will begin to put on weight. It’s the summer! Children should be outside playing, riding bikes, skateboarding or playing basketball. Putting down the controller will not just have them outside the house being active, but it will also allow them to release all that energy older children and teens usually have.

    Be Creative and Constructive This Summer


    There are so many things that are taking place during the summer and a lot of times, children will miss out because they are so preoccupied with gaming. It would be good to put the video games down for a minute and go spend some time with friends and family they have not seen in a while. They could also take up new hobbies or spend more time on the ones that they already have. The summer means a lot of free time and this just means that there are more ways for them to be creative and use their brains. Video games can be mindless at times and really allows for limited creativity to take place.

    Enjoy the Summer Fully!


    All this free time that the children have during the summers will come to an end once they become adults. You do not want them to look back at their summer holidays and realize that the only thing fun they did was play video games all day long. There should be that balance where they enjoy a couple hours of gaming, but also enjoy all that summer has to offer before school begins. The summer is a good time to go to amusement parks, the beach (if they live close by), sporting events, movies, family trips etc. There are just so many options available, they should take full advantage of everything and not lock themselves away playing games.

    2 month free subscription to Indieflix.com GIVEAWAY





               CLOSED winners were emailed


    For bringing attention to bullying among girls I was given a 3 month free subscription to Indieflix.com and now 10 of my readers will get a chance to win a 2 month subscription as well.

    You can read more about Finding Kind and stopping female bullying here.


    About Finding Kind   

    In February 2009, two young women, Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson joined forces having both been affected by female bullying throughout their youth and decided to create change by giving females a platform to speak out about this universal experience. What began as an idea for a documentary about girl-against-girl bullying, ultimately became Kind Campaign, an internationally recognized movement, documentary, and school assembly program based on the powerful belief in KINDness that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl “crime.”



    In this endearing documentary, a pair of best friends (who happen to be queen-bee pretty girls, but no matter) travel the country speaking with middle and high school girls about their pain and the pain they’ve caused others. It’s a sweet, earnest addition to the current anti-bullying movement. A few confessional scenes—little girls in braces pouring their broken hearts into the camera—will stick with you.

    Summer 2013 Bucket List

    For the past couple years I have printed up "pre-made" list from Pinterest to do over the summer. Having activities planned during the summer months when the kids are out of school, are great for the "I'M BORED" days.


    This year I took to Pinterest and printed up list 1 , list 2 and list 3 for the smaller kids ages 4 and 5.  For the 13 yr old I printed up a blank one for us to add things to.

    To get you started on your teens summer bucket list here are a few ideas we used/will be using..


    • Trip to an Amusement Park each month of summer vacation
    • Watch fireworks
    • Trip to the beach
    • Visit 3 new places
    • Read a book in 1 day
    • Learn a new hobby
    • Water balloon/gun fight
    • Family game day
    • Volunteer somewhere
    • Make ice cream sundaes
    • Movie night
    • Spend a day with a grandparent
    • Take a vacation
    • Start a journal on vacation
    • Spend a whole day without video games
