CiCi, my 2-1/2-year-old granddaughter, is ready for a room for a "big kid". Before I move, I was determined to re-style her room by creating matching up-cycled bedroom furniture for less than $150. This post is a short sneak peek of the one of the pieces of the overall bedroom project I will be…Continue

I don't know how it happens, but you go from an almost empty house to a home filled with toys. It seems like it happens over night. There was nothing to now stepping on toys on every step. Our house is like a minefield. I keep cleaning and putting them away and they keep resurfacing with unimaginable speed. I have put on a veto on buying new toys, but they still seem to sneak into our domain.
But who doesn't like toys and how can there ever be enough. I like playing with them and…Continue

Have you considered buying one for your child (or for yourself)? Here's my review of the World Tech Toys Helicopter.
For Christmas, my brother in law gave my son a World Tech Toy Helicopter. Of course, being mommy, I had to "test it". It says it's an inside only helicopter, but not in my home. This little helicopter has some power in it! The controls are very precise which means any movement I make on the control will be displayed in the movement of the helicopter. My awful…Continue
I've been working through a slow process of replacing some of Sillyboy's baby toys (the ones that were hardcore enough to survive his rambunctiousness as a baby/toddler, at least) one at a time for Bambina, with wooden, eco-friendly, non-toxic, non-plastic, learning, durable, and still happy-fun-time toys. It's a slow process, because a lot of the cool eco-friendly ones are a bit pricier- but I'm finding it's all very well worth it.
So I tossed out a favorite old clear plastic hammer…Continue

I’ve already confessed to forgery. But I’ve done other hard crimes too.
It’s no secret to anyone who knows me or reads this blog that Barbies were an important part of my childhood. Not in a BFF kind of way, but more in a drug addict kind of…Continue

** My ass is sure not a fan of sitting for six or more hours at a time.
** Grocery shopping on the eve of any given holiday is for masochists and crazy people.
** A giant cardboard box is the greatest toy you could give a kid.
** Comic books (ahem, "graphic novels") have completely consumed my husband.

I had some EnviroTex Lite left over from making my Laptop Desk, so I decided to make something fun for Little Moore.
I remember when I was little we'd watch Saturday Morning Cartoons, and during commercials, toys would BUST through a stack of…

(oops originally posted wrong link)
I wrote a post a little while back about the terrible ‘drama’ we encounter every time we are shopping and are in the toy department. (For those of you that haven’t read it, catch up here.)
Since I wrote it, I got some pretty good comments about what to do. Thank you so much, I loved the comments I got. I discussed them with my husband and we figured out the perfect plan. …Continue

Finally! Our representatives have grown a pair and have drawn a line in the sand against the fast food industry, on our behalf. In a nearly unanimous vote by city officials, fast food operators in San Francisco can no longer give away toys in kid's meals, unless they meet certain standards...much higher than what these restaurants…Continue

I’ve had a less productive couple of weeks when it comes to writing. I don’t think it’s connected to my latest rejection, but I’m not ruling that out entirely.
I think its because I was trying to write about a subject that causes me some anxiety. I have been working on a parenting article about whether or not to allow toy guns in the house. Not exactly an earth shattering topic, but for some reason, the subject meant enough to slow me right down. I’ve been motivated to work on…Continue
