My Little House on the Prairie Connection!   When I was a child I was addicted to Little House on the Prairie. If I was not found reading the books then I was watching it on T.V. It was a big deal to me and something I had in common with my Momma. Fast forward to my adult life with a daughter of my own. I was so excited to share my love with Little House on the Prairie with my daughter. As soon as she was old enough to understand I tried to read the books with her. She hated them! I mean would not even sit down and listen to them when I tried reading with her. She got board, they were not her "style". It was excuse after excuse for her to not have to listen to them with me. So after a few times trying I decided to give it up. Maybe when she is older I thought. Just a few short months after I tried to introduce Little House on … [Read more...]

** I was sent this product for the purpose of this review. However my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Lovin' My Portable Stereo Turntable   A few months ago my daughter and I were shopping at an antique store. I remember coming around a corner and seeing some records to which my daughter immoderately asked "What the heck are these Mom? They look like big CD's." I was honestly surprised that she did not know what they were. She is 11 years old! I grew up with a turntable in my room and listened to records all the time. I guess I took that for granted and just expected her to know lol. I explained to her what they were and we ended up searching around the antique store until finding a turntable. I showed her how it would work and such...she was so curious and amazed. Fast forward a few weeks and I got a surprising email asking me if  I would be interested in reviewing..guess what...a turntable! YAY! I of course said yes and immediately went down town … [Read more...]

** I was provided with a copy of this title for the purpose of this review.   Disney Pixar Inside Out   My Thoughts I could not wait for Disney Pixar's Inside Out to be released. As soon as I seen the trailer I knew it would be a hit. In fact my family and I stood in line to see it on opening night in the theater and we loved it! There are so many emotions that a child goes through. Many of them can be very confusing to a child and as parents it is hard to know sometimes just what our children are thinking and feeling. I was so happy to see that Disney made a movie that focuses on the emotions of children. It was not only fun to watch but it also helped to open up a conversation between my oldest daughter and I. We were able to talk about her feelings on different things and how we should react to some of the feelings we might feel. I loved getting to know my daughter better and I know that this is a conversation I would not have had with her without this movie. … [Read more...]

This is another great Disneynature film that will pull you right into the lives of beloved animals. It was neat to see the characteristics and lifestyles of these Monkey's. They are a neat animal that lives by a class system that I never knew about. I learned about how the "lower" class of Monkey's live and how it actually benefited Maya in the end. Such a neat and uplifting story. I loved watching Maya as she defeated the odds and raised her son Kip the best way that she possibly could. It did not matter if it was in the Jungle or in the City.
