KinderCare's Winter Science Camps ROCK!!!

Wondering what your kiddos will do during the Winter break??  Still haven't finished all your shopping??    Don't worry, we have the PERFECT solution!!! KinderCare Winter Science Camp!!!!!!  These camps are running at a KinderCare near you from December 19th-23rd and December 27th-30th.  Both school age and preschool kids will love these amazingly engaging and educational camps.

We got to check out some of the awesome activities yesterday at the preview day here in Chula Vista.  Our three year old, Gracie's, favorite activity was the dry ice bubbles.  The experiments that these directors and teachers have come up with for the camp are just amazing.  Kids will learn through educational and hands-on science themed activities and of course reinforce key subjects like language arts, math, and creative expression. 

 Learning how to make your own bubbles and bubble wands had Gracie learning how hard to blow to make bigger or smaller bubbles.  This activity combined the perfect balance of fun and learning and the KinderCare Winter Camp will be filled with these kinds of activities!  Listening to the excited teachers and directors talk about the activities planned for camp got me excited to go to KinderCare's Winter Science Camp!

Gracie loved spending the morning as a scientist and has asked multiple times to go back and play!!  Your kiddos can enjoy this amazing learning camp too from December 19th-23rd and December 27th-30th at a KinderCare near you!! 

We also got a special treat and had the opportunity to play in amazing San Diego SNOW!!!  KinderCare filled the playground with snow and let the kids make snow angels, build snow people, and of course throw snow balls.  Gracie had an amazing time, and so did I!!!

The Posh Little Urbanites Show (PLUSH)

On Sunday we went to the Posh Little Urbanites Show (PLUSH) in LA. What an amazing experience!!! It was baby gear heaven!!!! We learned about a bunch of new products and companies that we just love!!! Here are a few of our faves:

1. Kleynimals They are non-toxic "keys" that your kiddo can play with as an alternative to your keys in the grocery store!! Super cute animals and they won't fuss that they don't feel just like your keys!!

2. Lollacup Amazing straw sippy cups for 9+ month olds. They are beyond adorable and already kid tested by our two year old who LOVES them!! The straw is weighted so it stays down and keeps the cup in the juice/milk/water. We nabbed a green and orange one at the event and they even have names now (thanks to our five year old...the green one is Wizzle and the orange one is Lola)!

3. Layla Grayce This is a GREAT online baby gear/decor shop. If you are looking for the shabby chic look, this is THE place for you!!

4. Cutie Covers With their "Cutie Covers Cash" in the VIP swag bags we couldn't go wrong buying one of these for baby #3 (no...not pregnant yet!!!)...we ordered the Hooty Hoot Owl and it looks beyond adorable!

That is a just a small view of what was there...and of course we want to see MORE next year!!!!!!! Mutsy, Bumbleride, Ju-Ju-Be, Joovy, Rockin' Green, Happy Heinys, FuzziBunz, BinkLink and many of our other faves!!!!!

Shopping the deal sites

We love a good deal (who doesn't???) especially on stuff for the kiddos!!! Here are a few of our favorite deal sites:

Zulily: There is always a great selection here!!! Anything from nursing bras, little girls' dresses, little boys' togs, shoes, toys, diaper bags, and even clothing for mom!! Only downside to using Zulily is the shipping can take awhile since things ship from the manufacturer to Zulily and then from Zulily to you, they do have wonderful customer service though. Keep an eye out and you are sure to find the high end item you are on the hunt for at a really good price!

Babysteals and Kidsteals: Babysteals and Kidsteals each have a daily deal that is sent to your email, actually Babysteals is up to two (one at 9AM MDT and one at 9PM MDT). These deals are typically 30-70% off of the retail price. You can get anything from kids' clothes, diaper bags, cloth diapers, to toys and shoes. They have wonderful customer service and super fast shipping but watch out, if it is something popular it will sell out really fast!

Mamapedia: These are deals similar to those on Groupon and Living Social although typically for an online shop like Rosenberry Rooms,, etc. They are slowly expanding the deals in specific cities.

Gilt Groupe: This is definitely the super high end stuff. Again they have everything for kiddos you can think of and even designer stuff for everyone you could think of! Wonderful site and one to check daily.

Mamabargains: This site moves a little slower depending on what is up for sale. They have "one hot deal at a time until it sells out". Lots of stuff for brand new moms and infants.

Our new favorite blankets!!!

Looking for a great "blankie" for your little one?? Or maybe a super special blanket for yourself?? Check out the blankets at!! We particularly like the giraffe and pink combo! And of course you can get them personalized with your little ones initials. She also does some super cute little guy ties!!
