They create toys that inspire imagination as well as promote children's physical and intellectual development along with being socially & environmentally responsible and maintaining good values.

sounds good right?

You Gotta See This

We just bought a new house with a pool and that terrifies me.
I have a 2 year old and a 5 month old - neither of them can swim.
In doing research I found this site from Infant Swimming Resource

CLICK HERE to see something terrifyingly beautiful and amazing at the same time.

These folks teach 6 month old babies to float on their backs when they are in the water...even if they are fully clothed.

The closest instructor I can find is probably 45 minutes from my house and the class is daily for 4 weeks minimum. I think it will be worth every minute I sit in traffic.

Folks, peace of mind is hard to come by when it comes to your babies.....and it is worth every red cent.

Think Spring

In the dead of winter spring is fun to dream about.
With spring comes the beginnings of fresh produce.
We join our local cooperative farm where for about $13 a week we get a bountiful harvest of fresh vegetables, herbs and flowers.
Check out a farm in your area by going to


Our farm shares sell out early (LIKE NOW) so if you are interested make sure to act quickly.

An organic farm is a great place to take your toddler.

Yummy Baby Food.

We've posted here about the fresh frozen baby food market.
There's a new (or new to me) offering from Jack's Harvest.


These delicious certified organic fruits and vegetables are gently prepared in small batches then quickly frozen to capture nature's fresh flavor, vibrant color, rich texture and essential nutrients. Organic herbs and spices feed curious taste buds and add extra health benefits. Jack's Harvest keeps in the freezer up to 3 months, so plan ahead and stock up! Taste tested by Jack and his friends.

Well Hello Again

We've been on a bit of a hiatus between the holidays and sick kids, wrapping and eating and drinking and eating....
Happy 2008.

Santa brought me no presents because we've bought a new modern house and boy oh boy do I have lovely dreams for decorating.

If I had an extra 10 g's I would buy myself this hideout.


Wouldn't it just be the perfect spot for
***thinking, dreaming, escaping from toddler mayhem.

Of course to take full advantage of my mod-spot I'd need a full time Nanny and a housekeeper.

Santa...put this at the top of the list for 2008.

Prices start at $10,600 (but can't santa just whip one up at the Pole?)
