Traveling with kids can be very stressful, especially when you have little ones. As I gear up for our first road trip of 2012 I have been testing out some apps that I hope will make our road trip a little less stressful. Since there are so many different ways to use apps to travel better, I will be discussing two different types of apps: Summer Travel Apps and Kiddie Apps. Today we will look at some Summer Travel Apps. Read the entire post here on Label Daddy’s Blog
In a previous post I told you how I was participating in the Champions for Kids SIMPLE Service Project, Spin Into Action. I was asked to help by gathering my family, friends and co-workers to provide toothbrushes, toothpaste and other oral care items for the children in my community. I began my mission at Walmart and purchased some Spinbrushes to start off my collection of dental care items (you can check out my shopping trip and see how I made out.) After shopping I raided my stockpile of oral care items to add to the donation.
After a not-so-great response from my facebook post asking for items, I decided to make some cold calls to some local dentists. After a few no I finally got a YES! Suffolk Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics was kind enough to make a donation of toothbrushes. Here you can see my little guy J2 happy to accept this generous donation.Read the rest of this entry »

It happens every year at Christmas. The anticipation builds for weeks and weeks until the big day. Tons of beautifully wrapped presents under the tree get torn open in minutes in a frenzy of excitement as mom and dad sit back and watch with giant smiles on their faces, relaxing on the couch. Wait, what? It’s not like that at your house you say? Maybe you have a more common scenario like the one I have at my home. The first part is the same, anticipation, wrapped presents, excitement, yadda, yadda, yadda but with one small, significant difference.
Problem: Once the presents are opened the real horror story begins. Imagine two very persistent boys begging you to open their new toys at the same time.
Solution: Hard, annoying plastic packaging is no match for the Open It! Now you can open all those toys quickly and safely!
My kids my work and just everyday life keep me pretty busy these days. I fondly remember the days when I was able to spend a Saturday afternoon at the mall, browsing with a cup of coffee in hand, not really worrying about the time. It was a simple time in my life. I worked, I shopped, I hung out with friends. Easy. Read the rest of this entry »
