Free Personalization on Valentine's Day Gifts!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Every little one should have a teddy bear, even better if their name is on it. 3 of my 4 kids have names that are not common, so they never find items on racks in stores that are personalized for them (we still look sometimes, always to no avail). Now my newest granddaughter will have a name that's not common, so finding items for her with that extra personal touch will not be easy either...if we're shopping in a traditional store. is not your traditional store. They are an online store, with high quality products, fast delivery and a FREE personalization service that allows you to put any name on any and every item you buy from their vast number of product selections. I've selected this adorable Valentine's Day plush. It is one of many selections you can choose from and in addition to snuggly teddy bears of different sizes, colors and styles, you can also find other plush animals such as the Panda, monkey or a gorilla. There are different styles of shirts too, including cute sayings, couples, and this heart with an arrow through it that I've chosen, just to name a few.

Deluxe Cage Bingo 

Well, I'm not even alarmed that Bingo makes me happy. I loved it as a child (used to play with my grandfather) and now I love it as a grandma, lolol. I guess it's all come full circle for me now, as I've become the grandparent. I also play BINGO with my students at school once a month, when we host a party day on their half day. I put some pretty good prizes up and my room fills up fast (they get to choose from 1 of 5 rooms, each of us hosting something fun to do). This set from Pressman Toy though, is staying home. I've already got the game for the classroom, and I love this one too much to part with it. 😊

Baby's Book: Teddy Bear from Peter Pauper Press

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

There are so many varieties of products and places that sell them that you can usually find a good substitute for something, if you can't find the original, for what it is you are trying to buy. Every once in awhile though, there is an item that you want to find, and no substitute takes its place very well at all. That's how I feel about this particular baby book sold by Peter Pauper Press. I wrote about it way back in 2012 (you can access that article here if you would like) and now that my daughter is expecting it's the only one I want for her because a). it was adorable b). it was sturdy c). it was thorough, allowing for so many entries to take place between pre-birth and the age of (5).

I Finally Met THAT Baksetball Mom

He's always got a basketball in his hand. ;)

Just so you know, for the most part, I am not a confrontational person. I tend to address things quietly if they need attention, go directly to the source, and do it when no one is around, hoping to get a better understanding of what is going on, or find a peaceful remedy. So when I found myself ready to argue publicly with a woman, at my son's basketball game, I had to find the strength to be the better person, and not be 'that parent.'

Sposie Booster Pads for Diapers Giveaway

What we spent some time doing over here just before Christmas was getting a surprise baby shower ready for my daughter. I know you're supposed to do it closer to the due date (she's due later in March) but she mentioned that she wished it could be earlier, so I thought a great holiday gift idea would be to surprise her on Christmas Eve with a baby shower she had no idea was coming.
