Spring is here and Mother’s Day is quickly approaching. Mother’s day for me has never really been about presents or taking the day off from kids and family. For me, it’s always been a day for me to reflect, appreciate and be extremely grateful for the opportunity to be a Mom. There’s nothing I’d rather be doing than spending the day playing and relishing time with my family. And now that Spring is here, Moms everywhere are gearing up for Springtime activities with kids, maybe some gardening (my sons and I just planted flowers for the porch 2 weeks ago), spring cleaning and taking in the sights of flowers blooming. What Moms may be missing out on though is more sleep, better sleep, or just some plain old splurging on herself. We want to help change that so we’ve put together this Mother’s Day Giveaway! Join us in this celebration of Moms everywhere for all that we do and for the heaps of unconditional time and love we give to our children and families.
Mother’s love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved. ~Erich Fromm
So, for this Mother’s Day Giveaway, come celebrate with us and enter to win some fantastic prizes. Directions for how to enter follow the prize list.
We considered what the grand prize for our Mother’s Day Giveaway should be. A spa gift package? A gift card out for dinner? In the end though, we thought that rather than pick something out for mom, we’d let mom pick out something for herself. So, take the money and run! Splurge on just you for your special day. Choose your gift card from Target or Amazon.
The Good Nite Lite is the perfect nightlight for helping toddlers get into a healthy sleep pattern. This nightlight features a nighttime moon light that is set at bedtime to give off a soft blue glow that provides enough light to soothe your child but is not too bright as to inhibit sleeping. Parents can then set the light for a specific wake-up time and the sun lights up letting your baby or toddler learn and understand that until the sun lights up, it is still sleep time. The Good Nite Lite is a great visual cue for young children to begin moving from waking up too early and interfering with getting a full night’s rest. You can find more information and ordering this product at www.goodnitelite.com. A Good Nite Lite will go to one lucky winner.
This product has been referred to as the “sanity saving sleeper!” It’s really called the Little Keeper Sleeper & it’s designed to prevent unwanted removal of sleepers & diapers. Too many parents go into their kids rooms in the morning to find their kids undressed and/or the crib & walls have been decorated – and not with beautiful paint! This sleeper is unlike any other with 3 key features to keep the little Houdinis in these jammies.
The winner of the Little Keeper Sleeper will get to select the style and size of their choice. Check them out at www.littlekeepersleeper.com to see product photos and read incredible testimonials from parents of toddlers & those with special needs.
In a fast paced world where parents and children have limited quality time, Beautiful Creature’s mission is to bring families together offering a uniquely South African brand with an educational and positive message. We were able to listen to this CD and loved it! These songs are catchy with great drum beats that quickly get everyone moving and singing along. This album would be great for an afternoon dance off or for long car drives.
Beautiful Creatures will be giving away 10 copies of this album to our readers. Take a look at their website for more information about their music and to listen to samples.
Looking for something fun and healthy to do with your baby or toddler? Tot Yoga DVDs focus on yoga for children 10 months old to 3 years old. The DVD includes three distinct sections. The first two sections help parents learn to utilize playtime, increase exercise and reduce stress to help encourage wind down for peaceful napping. The gentle stretches and poses also help parents to warm up for a more complete yoga work out after their child has laid down. The first section of the DVD is designed to help parents learn the natural movements of their child for stretches and poses. The second section focuses on the parent helping engage the child in relaxing movements and is followed by the third section which is a more vigorous yoga for the parent. You can find out more about Tot Yoga on their website and watch sample videos.
One winner will receive a copy of Tot Yoga.
