Disney Frozen Read-Along Storybook and CD is a nice new addition to our collection.  Personally, I am a HUGE fan of the movie, Frozen... and I love read along books for Broxton at this age.  With this particular book, I loved that it went a bit more involved with the Frozen story line than other books... and of course, the illustrations are awesome!  Add to it the CD and it is a win-win situation!!!!   Run out and grab one for any last minute Easter gift ideas!  
Ages 3-5Series: Frozen Fearless optimist Anna sets off on an epic journey-teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven-to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.

After heading to the Atlanta Zoo last week, Broxton (like his mom) has fallen in love with the adorable panda bear.    I think they are the cutest things... and after seeing them in person, I love them even more... They are just soo cute and I love their paws! So- with his new love, imagine the excitement when we opened up a new book the other day featuring a cute panda named Chengdu.  I thought the book was super cute- and just like Broxton since he "could not, would not fall asleep!"    Broxton had to join in with me reading about how Chengdu "could not, would not fall asleep" and we had a great time turning the pages reading this story!  
Synopsis: High in his tree a young panda named Chengdu lies awake, …

We were recently sent a new book for review and Broxton totally loves it!   The latest book?  Honk Honk!  Beep Beep!  by Daniel Kirk.  This is a colorfully illustrated board book that takes us on adventure of the toys through the night....  Broxton has "read" it to me on several occasions and I just love when I see him grab this book!   
Synopsis:  Father and child rise early for a trip to watch the sunrise on the mountaintop.  Along the way they meet many friendly faces, some headed the same direction, and others in their own vehicles—big rigs, bulldozers and trains--with their own places to go and things to do. Nothing beats the start of a brand new day, especially when there are many vehicles to spot along the wa…

I am pretty lucky in that I normally do not have a problem falling asleep... Normally as soon as I am in the bed, it is just a short time before I am out... Broxton is more like his daddy in that it seems to take FOREVER for him to conk out.
Marc has always had sleep issues and we have tried everything... with NOTHING working for him.
I was recently contacted about a new "sleep support" and I wanted to let Marc try it out... 
Glysonna is a drug-free sleep aid, glycine fortified with added wellness nutrients which helps you to reach restorative sleep by:
a) Triggering relaxation.
b) Sustaining sleep.
and
c) Initiating the natural sleep process.

I had Marc try it and unfortunately for him, it did not work.  (We have honest…

With summer creeping up on us faster than you can imagine...  It might be a good time to try and change out a few eating habits to help with lowering calories!   Enter- Nectresse Natural No Calorie Sweetener. After reading about Nectresse, I see just how much sugar I do consume on a daily basis!
Check this out...
·        Just one 12-ounce can of regular soda contains eight teaspoons of sugar, or 130 calories and zero nutrition. ·        There are four calories in each gram of sugar, so if a product has 15 grams of sugar per serving, that’s 60 calories just from the sugar alone, not counting the other ingredients. ·        Sugar has many other names. Besides those ending in “ose,” such as maltose or sucrose, other names include f…

I am not sure if spring break is going on in your area - but it is in FULL force here.  Broxton had his one week, the brothers had theirs another, seems like the end of March and all of April is Spring Break city around this area!   With that being said, I wanted to do a little bit of a "staycation" with the boys.  Living in Georgia ALL of my life, I tend to take the local attractions for granted, but not recently!   We had the opportunity to go to Zoo Atlanta the other day and to say we had a great time was an understatement!  We had a BLAST!!!!   I was so excited to go and see the twin baby panda's, but Broxton got in his mind he wanted to see the giraffes the most!  The older brothers were just excited to b…
