Earlier this week, Bubbles and I were discussing Father’s Day and what we’d like to do to surprise Daddy. The conversation definitely put the “Father’s Day buzz” in her ear, because at bedtime that night, she asked if we could read one of the kids books on Father’s Day that we have.

Father's Day Books for Kids

It made me realize that while I had shared a list of Mother’s Day books for kids, that I hadn’t ever shared any of our favorite Father’s Day books. And Father’s Day is just as important as Mother’s Day, so I thought it was time to rectify the situation. Continue reading »

One of my favorite memories from elementary school field trips, were our adventures at the Francis Malcolm Science Center. It has an attached planetarium, which for the small, rural community I grew up in, was a pretty amazing thing.

So when the science center had a recent open house, I was excited to take Bubbles. She loves anything to do with science/space/nature so I knew she’d love it. And it gave me the opportunity to show her where my own interests in space and science had been fostered. Continue reading »

I was sorting through Bubbles’ books the other day, pulling out each of the titles appropriate for Valentine’s Day so we’d be sure to read them before the holiday passed us by. I try to keep all the holiday books grouped together on one shelf, but sometimes they get mixed in with the others.

Last year I shared with you my partnership with PackageFromSanta.com where we unboxed a very special treat sent from the North Pole directly to Bubbles. It was truly one of the highlights of the holiday season for her – one she stills talks about to this day.

Kids can receive a Package From Santa surprise - a personalized package from Santa full of Christmas magic mailed directly to them!

As we removed each Package From Santa item, I watched her excitement grow. There was everything you could imagine: a cookie from Mrs. Claus, reindeer food, hot cocoa, a swatch from Santa’s suit, and a letter from the big man himself. We still have a bit of the reindeer food left, and Bubbles is looking forward to spreading it again this year. Continue reading »
