Back to School, Back to School! (a giveaway)

My birthday always coincides with the start of school. So, what better way to kick off my month of favorites than with a Back to School or Mother's Day Out giveaway! I've put together some essentials for returning (or going to the first time) to school! Well, really not essentials... just some fun cute (and handy) things! With no further ado:

My favorite Back to School goodies!

ABC & 123 Go together like you and me...

Cranky on the way to school or mother's day out? Cure those back to school blues by jammin' out on the way with the simply awesome tunes of Spaghetti Eddie! This is in heavy rotation at our house/car/ipod. We love it. Brendan the singer/song writer/ creator Spaghetti Eddie is out of OKC and put together this album as a gift to his Goddaughter. Now he is expecting his first baby ANY-DAY-NOW! YAY! He is so talented and has a great voice. Moms, it will not grate your nerves. The idea was to create fun, educational, catchy tunes that kids would love and parents would NOT want to pull their ears off. Well, he got it right. I find myself boppin' along to the songs myself... And lets pretend that I don't sing them really loudly, too, k? Thanks. My I mean Lucy's, favorite song is Together Like You and Me. So cute. Your kids will love this and you won't hate it either ;-) You can hear clips of the songs HERE. If you love it, like I know you will, you can purchase the album on iTunes HERE. ENJOY! Oh, yah... Spaghetti Eddie is on Facebook too! He even has some cute tees and onsies!

Don't eat your boogers!!



I don't know about you, but I say that like 4-5 a day. And with back to school comes colds and sniffles. BOOGIE WIPES TO THE RESCUE!! Toss these little babies in you handbag/diaper bag/backpack and Voila! No more boogers! They are super gentle and the scent is not overwhelming or offensive. Boogie Wipes are made with saline to dissolve boogies (mucus) caused by the common cold, allergies or otherwise booger-filled kid moments. Extra soft, alcohol, phthalate and paraben free, Boogie Wipes are available in Great Grape, Fresh Scent, Magic Menthol and Simply Unscented. Recommended by pediatricians as a gentle, effective alternative to a dry tissue. (site)

Color to you little hearts content! 


Even on the walls... Washable, non-toxic crayons are a MUST around our place. Lucy loves to color... On everything. Oh, and eat them too, hence the non-toxic part. Crayolas are the best. Nuff said.

And it all comes in a neat little package...

Thats right! A brand spankin' new backpack to house all your back to school goodies!! Y'all know how I feel about Skip*Hop. Well, they didn't let me down with this one, that's for sure! I'm sorry, but this is the cutest thing I have ever seen, hands down. This little zebra backpack is the perfect size for your little one and, in true Skip*Hop fashion, it has both form AND function. Its roomy main compartment is perfect for your crayons, homework, and blankie :) There is also an isolated pouch for snacks and a mesh bottle pocket on the side. Pack it up, out it on and your dressed for success! Need it NOW? You can buy this little nugget at Ding-Bats
