I had to share this

So we are moving next month and I am looking for places to donate all of the things we need to unload. I found a place for old clothes, a consignment shop for kid's clothes (see if there is a MILK MONEY in your town) and now I have found a place for my old laptops and cell phones. Free shipping, the secure and wipe out all of your personal data for you and you get the peace of mind that your stuff is being properly recycled.

Good stuff folks.

Cars, Carseats and Babies...OH MY!

So we have 2 babies and might someday have a third (dare I even write that??)
Our Ford Explorer is barely fitting my toddler when my husband is driving.
We are considering a mini-van (I never thought I would write those words) but would love an alternative. Driving one of those massive SUV's is really not my style but then again neither is the minivan.

I found this site CARSEATDATA.ORG

Helps you to answer questions like what is the narrowest booster seat? Which seat has the highest top harness slots? which one has the tallest seat back? The answers to these questions help you figure out:

Which seats will fit, side by side, 3 across?
What is the best harnessed seat for a child with a long torso?
Which high back booster will last the longest for a tall child?

Check out their Forums to discuss what has worked for you or what you are looking for!

Easy Peasy Art!

I am so not artistic and I am reminded of that everyday.
However I found something that looks really interesting is a paint by numbers kit made just for you from any photo you send them (digital files too)


The photo Paint-By-Number kit entitles you to one (1) personalized paint-by-number kit of your photograph. The kit includes: 42 acrylic paints, 2 brushes, numbered outline on art paper or canvas, and a reference sheet of the outline in case you paint over a number.

Princesrange from $50 - $90 depending on the size you choose and whether you paint on canvas or paper.

and get creative!

For Your Global Gobbler

Here at Hip Kid Blog we have a few obsessions:
Modern Nursery Design
Wooden Toys
Uber Funky Baby Clothes
and new and interesting baby foods.

Our last few food related posts have been about all the new fresh and fresh/frozen baby foods on the market. This one is a bit different.


Dr. Susanna's World Baby Foods, LLC offers organic and nutritionally balanced baby foods based on the cuisines of the world. Our baby foods are preservative free, designed by physicians, and favor local farmers. Diverse multicultural flavors helps your baby develop into a healthier, happier and better eater!


Quintessential eastern European cuisine, the best way to enjoy beets, carrots, potatoes, spinach, and a touch of dill.

Flavors of India: cumin and coriander blended with lentils, brown rice, carrots, apples, for your very own baby doll.

A ginger and cardamom delight - with bananas, pears,, and jasmine rice - and a dash of tumeric.

Literally, "What's up squash?" We couldn't resist the rhyme, and nor the sweet blends of squash, sweet potatoes, and garbanzo beans, gently seasoned with a sweet mild chili.

Bali Ha'i.... Welcome to the South Pacific, with this Polynesian-inspired recipe of coconuts, banana, pear, and jasmine rice.

Hey, we love edamame, and wouldn't any baby? Here's a mix of Japanese flavors including bok choy, brown rice, edamame, apple and a hint of wasabi.
Do babies like it? Meet our panel of experienced food critics.

I haven't tried it yet.
Any of you guys give these flavors a whirl yet? Leave a note in the COMMENTS section.
I will write to the company and see if they will send me some to review here for you all.
