Nuby helps you transition your kids in so many ways!

My roommate and her daughter have been living with us for awhile now while they looked for a new apartment. While they have been here, they've been sharing the boys' Nuby plates, cups, spoons and what not... When she let us know she was going to moving into her own place soon, I wanted to do something special to help with the transition - and I knew Nuby could help... and the timing couln't have been more perfect.
She was having a rough day when I realized that the special Nuby box had showed up... I told her maybe I could cheer her up... and its safe to say I did.  Nuby sent us over their Fun Feeding Set - "Set includes 2 bowls, 2 plates, 2 forks, 2 spoons and 2 tumblers (9oz / 270ml). Each piece is durable enough for every day use and has been sized just right for your little one. They are also easy to clean and are 100% BPA Free!" These are go-to staples in our house... the bowls and plates are used EVERY day - and Maddie has been practicing with the big girl cups! So it was perfect for her to have her own set now to bring to their new place. Aymee is a busy mom on the go - so the travel holder for the spoons and forks will be great when they're out running around or perfect for a picnic! The Nuby Fun Feeding set is "ideal for children who are beginning to feed themselves. They feature a fun design and are available in a variety of colors."

My favorite part about the set of bowls is that they are microwave safe.  This morning I made Rozzlyn some oatmeal using one of hers... Its always nice being able to do everything I need to feed her out of one bowl. Less mess and easy cleanup.

Fear: Choose Love Not Hate

It's times like this that I find myself stricken with fear.  A family woke up yesterday morning, many families - and spent the afternoon at the Boston marathon... Some of them aren't coming home tonight... Kids woke up and went to school on the day of the sandy hook shooting. A day no different than today when I dropped off my son to do the same. Some of those kids didn't go home that night. This fear - this utter fear that even leaving the house isn't safe anymore... When you freeze up inside just doing normal things people do every day. Going to school, taking the bus, an airplane, or like today, going for a run. Safe things, family friendly events that have turned into nightmares. Today people saw things that I have only imagined in my most horrific dreams. And even that was likely not a comparison for the real events that took place. How can I raise my kids in a world full of such hate and chaos? That fear can't beat me. I can't let it win. Instead it festers inside of me and drives me to be a better parent... A better wife... A better person. It reminds me to ALWAYS kiss my kids before I drop them off for school, before bed, and 100 times in between... To always tell them I love them... Because I never know when it could be my last. It drives me to raise great, confident and independent children that know the difference between right and wrong... Love and hate... I can't control the actions of someone else... But, I can control the way I handle it and I can teach my kids to do the same. Today someone thought it was a good idea to blow up men, women and children. Innocents just watching a race. Maybe a child watching his dad cross the finish line. There is no excuse. It's unacceptable... There is no reason valid enough for this to have happened today. But I won't let it beat me. I won't live in fear... We all deserve better than that... And it starts with our kids. Now a days it seems if you're being bullied, don't agree with someone about their race, religion, sexual orientation, or just need some extra attention the solution is easy... Bring a gun to school... Blow up some random strangers... Fly a plane into a building... You will get all the attention you want and more - spread like wild fire across the media. Or maybe - we could just spend a little more time paying attention in the beginning... Teach our children the difference between right and wrong... Love and hate... And one by one we can make this world a better place.

Nuby Fun Drinking Cups!

The girls in this house are growing up! So naturally it was time to get our hands on some big girl cups. Today modeling is Ms. Maddie - my BFF Aymee's daughter... Knowing I am a huge NUBY supporter - she asked me where to get some great, durable & kid sized cups. Well, naturally I found her the perfect ones...
"Nûby™ Fun Drinking Cups™ are bright, fun and durable enough to withstand the challenges of daily use. They are great for children who are just beginning to drink from an open cup because they are sized perfectly for smaller hands. They feature a fun design and are available in a variety of colors." I have personally watched these cups bounce off the table and floor with not a crack... practice makes perfect, right? Aymee is a busy busy mama and says her favorite part about them is that they are low maintenance... when they get dirty - you just toss em in the dishwasher. She also said she loves the embossing on the side as it provides a bit of grip to the sides to make them easier to hold.
Big thanks to Nuby for always offering us the perfect solution to our growing baby's needs.

Nuby Sport Sipper! My Hero lovers new favorite.

I know I have told you before - about my love for the Nuby Sport Sipper... but Nuby just took it to a while new level for my little man, Zavery! He is hero obsessed... specifically Spiderman & Captain America... but of course a strong appreciation for Hulk, Bat Man, etc. etc. etc. So when I saw this new design to my favorite Nuby Sipper, I was sold... and so was he!
 I love how easy they are to clean... I just throw in the dishwasher and done... and the "straw" is nice and wide so its easy to get in there if it needs a little extra scrubbing. The cup features his two favorite colors - red & blue. And its printed with super hero kids... It is the "go to" cup of his now...  "The Nûby™ Sport Sipper is perfect for children on the go! It's sized just right for little hands to grip and is available in a variety of cute designs that make cup drinking more fun for your little one. It features an easy to use sports sipper straw that is durable enough for your child's newly formed sharp teeth. And because it's from Nûby™, you know that it has been engineered to prevent spills and reduces leaks."
Available for sale on Amazon.

Review: Nuby Booster Seat

Last week we had the chance to try out the Nuby Booster seat - and I gotta say... it might actually be Rozzlyn's favorite thing... I actually got it for my son Zavery since he sits just little low for our table. Though its never actually been used for him. Why? Because Rozzlyn snagged it first and no one else is allowed to sit in it. This was immediately after we opened the box. She grabbed the Nuby Twisty Rattle and plopped her little bum right down in her new spot.
"The Nûby™ Booster Seat is safe, durable and strong. It features a wide sturdy base, and subtle contours that are comfortable and stylish. It comes equipped with safety straps that can be attached to most chairs. Holds up to 65 pounds!"My favorite part about this seat is its light enough for Rozzlyn to drag around anywhere she would like - yet safe and sturdy enough to be used as a booster seat. It is such a multi-function item and I would recommend it to anyone!
