As a new mom with my first baby on the way, safety is number one when it comes to having my little one in the car. For me a car seat has to provide the very best safety for a baby and that’s one area I refuse to budge on. When I bring baby Katelynn home, she’ll be riding in style in her new Evenflo Symphony DLX All-In-One.
Today I unboxed the car seat and was surprised to see only two items. The entire convertible car seat and a cup holder attachment. What? Really? Nothing to assemble? No annoying assembly instructions to decipher? YES!!!!!! The only thing I was worried about was the manual, I thought it was missing…. NOPE! It was attached in the back of the seat. Whew… I wanted to read all of the safety tips, just in case.
I can’t say enough great things about my PlayMG and the fun that’s packed into these devices. When my nephews are around, they love to play on my phone. Sometimes hogging it the entire time and draining the battery when I might be expecting important phone calls or text messages. Sadly, they’ve also accidentally clicked and purchased things in the App Store. Not with PlayMG!
PlayMG was specifically designed to save parents’ phones and devices by giving kids and teenagers something safe and fun. PlayMG allows parents to allocate a specific amount of money to each device and monitor it’s usage. No more surprise purchases on your credit card, thank heavens.
Not convinced yet? The MG is endorsed and used by two huge stars your teens will recognize in a heartbeat, basketball allstar Kyrie Irving and TV star Olivia Holt.
PlayMG uses the Android system and through WiFi can download music, apps and more from the Google Play store. This one of a kind device was designed for teens! It fits in their pocket and allows them to have some freedom and fun without stealing Mom and Dad’s phone or tablet. Oh and it has a camera, too! It’s the non-smartphone smartphone! LOL!!!
PlayMG is available for purchase online at PlayMG, Amazon and ToysRus and now at your local Target. Inside the box you’ll receive the PlayMG, Micro USB charger, 8 and 16 GB Micro SD cards and SpendSmart prepaid card. Add this to your Christmas shopping list for that hard to shop for teenager, they’ll be amazed! So much fun and they’ll think they’re a big shot for having the newest and coolest handheld device.

How do I feel about stuffed animals? Well, I particularly don’t care for them. You know the ones you bring home from the fair that just add up and collect dust which eventually you have to turn a corner of your room into your stuffed animal collection. Not my thing. Bommerscheim Buddies made by Bommerscheim Sister Co. is different. Their cute and cuddley Bommerscheim Buddies are the only stuffed toy your child will ever need.
Caden loves his Bommercheim Buddy and loves that he was able to pick out his own pattern, transportation. So adorable!
We all know that stuffed animals get dirty especially if you can’t wash them! That’s another reason why I don’t like them. But, Bommercheim Buddies have removable covers that you can throw into the washer! With me being such a clean freak that is a huge plus for me!
Just unlatch the velcro
Then pull out the pillow & wash your cover!
What’s great about this is you can purchase multiple covers to switch things up a bit. Especially when you’re washing one cover you can slip on another instantly so your child doesn’t have to be without his cuddly friend.
I love the ones Caden picked out!
Just a few more covers that I love in their Flannel Collection
The Bommerscheim Sisters Company
My mother and her sisters grew up in rural southern Illinois in the 1940′s and 50′s. My Aunt Joan first made the Bommerscheim Buddies in the early 1960′s for her kids. Then my mother made them for my siblings and me. They quickly became our constant companions. Aren’t they adorable?
In the 1980′s and beyond, my mother made the Bommerscheim Buddies for her grandchildren. There are a number of well-loved originals in the homes of my cousins, nieces and nephews.
My family and I hope that Bommerscheim Buddies help your family create its own legacy. Start your family tradition today with Bommerscheim Buddies!

On Monday, August 5, 2013 my world stopped. My heart skipped a beat. All of my dreams came true.
I’m beyond excited to announce that…
Not in the traditional sense, but through adoption. Days after taking yet another disappointing test, I received a call at work from a long time acquaintance. She was pregnant and had thought long and hard about the decision; she wanted us to adopt her baby.
Without a doubt in my heart, or a question in my mind, I said yes. Then I cried. And cried. And thanked God for a blessing in the making.
Our little “tater” was safe and sound in her birth mother’s womb, the lone survivor of triplets. The other babies were miscarried very early and our little miracle stayed strong. [Read more...]
