We were recently #gifted the children’s book “Who Am I? I Am Me!” to review compliments of Educate2Empower Publishing. It’s written by Jayneen Sanders // & illustrated by Diane Ewen. Overall, this is a good book to have in your child’s collection. The writing is solid for our kids’ age group (2 & 4+) and the illustrations are cute, modern and fun. For the subject matter, I think it’s never too early to teach our children about how to work against stereotyping of any kind.
Today we’re reviewing the Nuby Thirsty Kids Flip-it Water Canteen: a handy flip-top water bottle that works in a lunchbox, or on-the-go when we travel.
Fall marks the time of year when I start planning Clara and Wyatt’s dual December birthday party. Yep, totally combining it ’till they won’t let me anymore. #noshame.
In December, they will be 3 and 5. So I researched aaall the kids party places.
And as bonus of my annual crazy-mama birthday party scouting, I’ve decided to make my venue list public. And styled. With links. And prices! You’re welcome.

We were recently #hosted by the brand new Cava Robles RV Resort in Paso Robles, California. And, you guys, we…
Overall, these make for a fun craft that turns into a toy. For my kids specifically, I think this toy is a little too old for them. The box says ages 6+. So it’s too old for Wyatt (age 2) for sure, but Clara (age 4) was borderline able to assemble it with my help, which caused a lot of frustration for her because she wants to be able to do it herself.On the other hand, she really liked that the dolls were sparkly, pretty and that one of them involved her one true love – cupcakes. So for the price, it’s worth trying one out to see if your 4/5/6 year old can manage it.
Kids game company @Pressmantoy gifted us three kids games to review. In our house, Clara really loves “winning” so we pick the “everyone wins!” concept of gameplay and keep playing till everyone can have a turn at winning. Read on to take a look.
From singing and dancing at the library to strolling alongside the waterfront – we’ve got ya covered. Here are some of our absolute favorite quick-hits for things to do in SLO County with very small children.
All in all, we have a lot of fun at The Slice Pizza & Games in Paso Robles. From a game featuring a giant Minion to a classic claw booth that dishes out a prize every time, I’m genuinely impressed by the business’ family-friendly atmosphere that’s welcoming but also modern.
In Family Yoga, Vanessa of Yaya Yoga ca teaches toddlers and preschoolers the perfect mix of movement, play and mindfulness from a yoga mat. Parents also participate in this class that may feature fun activities like crawling like forest animals, stomping like dinosaurs and playing toe-ga with fluffy little pom pom balls!
