I will be the first to admit that we don't watch Spongebob here... I have many friends that say their kids love it, but its just not my thing.  I am pretty sure they show it at Broxton's after school care, but that is about it!  I think that many kids will love this new DVD, it seems full of great episodes!

We have movie nights as often as possible. We were lucky enough to have been sent Rock Dog for review and let me tell you, it is one that we watch over and over again.  I love the music, I love the story of following your dreams.  If you have not seen it, try to get it on your movie night list as soon as you can.  Broxton and Savannah request it often and even in the car when I can't see it, I can still enjoy listening to it!

Paw Patrol: The Great Pirate Rescue - Now available

Image
It seems as though Paw Patrol is getting more and more popular each day and that is totally fine with me.  Broxton used to love watching it, but I guess he has grown out of it now.  He will watch if Savannah is watching and it is the only thing on, but if she isn't in here to watch, he is too busy to watch it with me.  Savannah loves Skye, of course...  but Marshall is still my favorite!  I have this put up for a rainy day treat and I know she will love it when I surprise her with it!

4 Ways to Inspire Kids to Turn Off Electronics and Turn on Their Creativity

I received this email and thought I would share with you all.  I don't know about you, but we have to set limits on electronics, or that would be the only thing they played with sometimes.  
4 Ways To Inspire Kids To Turn Off Electronics And Turn On Their Creativity Children love their electronic devices. Television, video games, cellphones and laptops keep them occupied for hours, in some cases acting as live-in babysitters while parents finish chores or just relax. But while all those devices have their advantages, they also can stifle creativity as children become absorbed in what’s happening inside those screens instead of exploring the real world and letting their imaginations soar. There are ways to turn that around, though, and get the creative juices flowing in those young minds, says Colleen Miller, a veteran teacher with 15 years of full-time and substitute experience in both elementary and middle schools. “You can always just tell a child to put down the electronic device, bu…

Top 5 Back to School Stressors and How to Bust Them

Top 5 Back to School Stressors and How to Bust Them (GUEST POST) By Dr. Sanam Hafeez,  NYC Licensed Neuropsychologist and School Psychologist
While the start of a new school year comes with excitement for kids, it also comes with stress. It’s common for kids to feel overwhelmed this time of year especially as they navigate the challenges that crop up with a new school year. This stress can manifest itself in stomach aches, headaches, loss of appetite, even depression. Here are 5 common top back to school stressors and how parents can help their kids to bust them. 1. Facing the bully. For kids who are bullied, summer break also means a break from the relentless verbal and at times physical abuse that can be crushing to a kid’s self-worth. Oftentimes kids won’t tell parents that they are being bullied because they are embarrassed or fear telling school administrators will only escalate the bullying. As the school start date approaches, pay attention to your kid’s anxiety level. Communicate an…

Start each day with @CommunityCoffee (plus a recipe!)

Image
The older I get, I seem to enjoy coffee more and more.I am thinking that I drink more now because I have found that Community Coffee works best for me.  I love flavored coffee and they have yet to disappoint me! I used to never drink it, then it was like 1 or 2 times a year. I have noticed that I was drinking 1 or 2 cups a week, these days I catch myself enjoying a nice cup daily.

Community Coffee began in 1919 and almost 100 years later, it is still here. It is a four generation family that makes it and I am pretty sure that we can agree that there are generations that have passed along the love to keep them in business!  ( I can't help but notice when I see Community Coffee ads on the sides of buildings!  I wanted to g…

Have you seen #TheBossBaby

Image
You know how you go to a hotel and they have the "new movies" that are like $18.99 to watch? Well, over the summer, we paid the price to see Boss Baby!   Broxton had been BEGGING to go see it in the theaters and we just had so much going on that we never made it.  Once he saw the 9 million ad's for it at the hotel, I figured let's just go ahead and see it so he can stop asking about it.  Savannah fell asleep and we enjoyed room service and a movie.  We LOVED it!  Was it worth the $18.99?  I sort of have to say yes, since we knew at that point we would have to add it to our home theater collection.

Time to declutter!!!

Decluttering expert Tracy McCubbin, founder of dClutterfly, has 10 tips and tricks to declutter and organize your home in preparation for kids to go back to school, including:
Before the onslaught of this school year’s crush of homework and artwork, make sure you have decluttered last year’s!After a summer of “I’m bored” you’ll have a great idea of what toys your kids really play with.  Time to donate (or toss if they are broken) toys that didn’t get touched.  And don’t forget the holidays (more stuff) are just around the corner.  3.1% of the world’s children live in America, but they own 40% of the toys consumed globally.Did summer reading lists create a glut of books in your home?  Time to do a purge of the books that won’t get read again or won’t ever be read.  Also, return the overdue library books!Running around in bathing suits and sprouting up like weeds means your kids have outgrown a lot of last year’s clothes. Time to do a deep dive on their clothes and donate the clothes the…

Savannah is still young enough to not be into all of the Nickelodeon shows, but she does have some that she likes.  We have not introduced Shimmer and Shine on a regular basis, but I have seen the kids going crazy over it and she loves it when she does get to see it on TV.  Lucky for Shimmer and Shine fans, Nickelodeon  has released a new DVD.
