When Teddy was born and had severe reflux the MOBY WRAP saved me.
Teddy was comfortable, my back wasn't breaking. He loved to be snuggled against me.

Fast-forward seven months and about 15+ pounds...a nw solution was in order.

New Age Ant Farm

Move over ant is the antquarium.


The Antquarium gel and habitat was developed in 2000 by NASA to study animal behavior under zero gravity in space. Now families can watch the ants in their own home as they eat the gel and tunnel through it to create a unique environment. Ants are not included in the purchase of an Antquarium but are readily available through the website listed on the box. The average lifespan for the ants is around 7 months.

...unless they make a break for it and raid your pantry....

Wonderful Walls

Please excuse us for the brief hiatus.
Hip Kid's Family moved over Easter weekend into a house that is TOTALLY.UNDER.CONSTRUCTION. Uh.Hmmm. A House that was supposed to be TOTALLY.FINISHED by now.

We thought we could apologize by showing you some amazing wall decals from down under.


Ever wondered why your kid draws on the walls?

You’d hate blank walls too if your imagination hijacked your brain every five minutes.

Introducing Wonderwall, creative wall graphics to control wax crayons everywhere. At last green giraffes can romp across the nursery with impunity. Our fun designs are easy to fix to walls, glass, mirrors or any flat surface. And the big blue elephant won’t leave an impression on the wall when he’s removed. Although he might refuse to budge from your child’s imagination.

My very most favorite:: THUMBELINA

Nourish Those Hip Kids

Nourish Interactive is a neat site I recently came across.
Introduce your child to a new, fun way to learn about nutrition. There is a video game that teaches your child about the importance of nutrition and exercise through animation, exploration, gamelets and decision making activities. Understanding nutrition will give them the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy choices throughout their lives.

It is FREE to sign up and there are games for the kids and helpful tools for parents like meal planners and more information about creating balanced meals.

We all could use a little help getting our tykes to eat well!
