I've got a deep love for The Children's Place.  Great quality clothing, affordable pricing, so the adults are happy, in comfortable styles and colors that the kids are glad to wear.  This even extends, at this time of year, to Halloween Costumes (although if your kids are like mine, they'll enjoy costumes all year round ...

In doing our  bathroom makeover, we had to rob the girls' closet of some space, in order to install some built in shelving for much-needed bathroom storage.  While their closet is a fairly good sized one for a child's bedroom, it also has to house all of the clothing for both of my girls, and ...

One of my family's favorite things to do together is cook...bake...even make playdoh together. My kids love to make things "from scrap" and have all loved taking part, even as little one year olds barely able to stand on a chair to hold a spoon.  It's not always perfect, and it's definitely always messy, and ...

My son is kind of obsessed with superheros. As are most of his friends.  The current focus of the superhero obsession is Spider-Man.  We eat, sleep and breathe Spidey.  My son has literally worn two Spidey costumes until they fell apart, and is fast doing the same with a third.  I don't mind- especially when ...

Step 2 Fun Time Room Organizer

step2

My toy room has been in desperate need of some organization. I always like to reevaluate my toy situation this time of year in preparation for the holidays. Out with the old and in with the new kind of thing. My philosophy is that every toy must have a place to live. Otherwise chaos ...

ET bluray combo pack

ET has always been one of my favorite movies.  It was one of my mom's, too.  It's actually got my favorite movie scene of all time- when Gertie goes running screaming through the closet, arms up high- and ET follows suit- I don't know why but I just LOVE that scene! Now I can play ...
