So You Want To Get A GloFish? Here Is Our Aquarium Review

So You Want To Get A GloFish? Here Is Our Aquarium Review

Our little girl has been begging for a fish tank for almost a year and I completely blame my mother! In California, at Abuela's house, the kids have a lovely fish tank in their room. They love their fish and it instantly makes them feel at home, having responsibilities and something to look after. So when Walmart asked us to review the GloFish 3 Gallon Aquarium Tank, I almost said no (who needs another mouth to feed!) but ultimately agreed knowing how happy it would make my almost 5 year old daughter. Here's my complete review from the perspective of a first time aquarium … [Read more...]

 

My Spiderman Princess Enters the #BeAHeroContest

My Spiderman Princess Enters the #BeAHeroContest

My little girl has benefited tremendously from having a little brother. Her cautious nature - and girly nurture - has been bombarded with all things boy. And she loves it! The latest to enter her world of girl is all things Spiderman. Her baby brother cannot get enough! So when Walmart asked us to help them celebrate the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at Walmart, we agreed! Buy The Amazing Spiderman Now! Our kids are both still too young to be watching this action packed movie, but Daddy D and I aren't! You can now buy the blu-ray combo pack for $19.96, which includes Blu-ray, … [Read more...]

 

Shopping for Back to School Uniform at Walmart

Shopping for Back to School Uniform at Walmart

Going to back to school means getting back in uniform for so many kids, including mine! Alina starts pre-k next week and wearing a special school shirt is one of the things she's most excited about. Though we're told what they need to wear for tops, we're open to buying any kind of bottoms... as long as they're khaki or navy blue. When I wore a uniform, we had to wear a specific plaid skirt or specific navy shorts. The shirts were also these bottom down, thin shirts (or ones with a crazy sailor collar). By the time I graduated from 8th grade, I hated uniforms! But now, as a mom, this whole … [Read more...]

My Kid Is Too Giant For Strollers, And I’m Not Happy About It

My Kid Is Too Giant For Strollers, And I’m Not Happy About It

I've been a Britax Latina Ambassador for two years - two years!! That's like a lifetime in blogger years and deserves some kind of celebration! We've all grown up quite a bit within that time. I visited Britax headquarters in North Carolina and was able to test their innovative ClickTight Technology that has literally changed our lives. (See a full review of the Britax Frontier 90.) I've been able to report the latest product developments and even the values and ethics of this stand-up company. It's true, this post is sponsored by Britax and I'm proud to support them year after … [Read more...]

 

Newest Outdoor Playhouse: Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II

Newest Outdoor Playhouse: Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II

The newest outdoor playhouse from Step2 is available in select stores and it has provided my kids with hours of outdoor fun! As a Step2 Ambassador, the Neat & Tidy Cottage II Outdoor Playhouse was sent to us to conduct this review and I'm excited to let you know what we think. Our last Step2 outdoor playhouse - the The Great Outdoors Playhouse - worked perfectly for a few reasons: it was super tall and big, allowing my big babies plenty of room to move around. It was open, allowing me to join in the fun! But what the first playhouse did not have, that this Neat & Tidy Cottage II … [Read more...]
