I'm all about hand me downs- giving and receiving.  Kids go through sizes so fast and we've had stuff here that never got worn before it was outgrown- I'd much rather swap with another parent who has kids in different sizes than me than just toss clothing out when its in perfectly good shape- I ...

Neat-Oh ZipBins (Giveaway)

WP_000110

  Sometimes I think we are going to run out of space in my house. Or rather, I know we are. Three kids and 2 adults in a not huge house with not a lot of wall space makes for storage issues. I've found a few innovative solutions for toy storage, one of my favorites being ...

Caillou plush doll and toy train (Review)

If you have ever watched PBS Kids or Sprout with your own or other people's little kids, chances are you are familiar with a little bald 4 year old boy named Caillou who has his very own animated show- and what may possibly the catchiest theme song ever.  (I can hear the notes now just typing this).   ...
