My Boy Lives Life In the Fast Lane When I was pregnant with my 2nd child, I already had a boy, so I sort of new what to expect, but was not fully prepared for what would turn out to be my middle son! From the age of 5 months old, he was army crawling, at 7 months, he was cruising, and from the first time he rolled over he was after anything with wheels. I remember him army crawling to a Hot Wheels car that belonged to his brother, smacking his hand on it and pushing it back and … Continue reading

Thomas and Friends Giveaway

Thomas and Friends

When I was young we used to walk over to the Canadian Tire all the time and look at the toys while my Mom would buy things that she needed. One time, I saw a stuffed Dino (From The FlintStones) and it was about 3 feet tall, which at the time was as tall as I was. I happened to have money that I got for my birthday and it was the same amount as this Dino. My Mom let me buy it, but I had to carry it home. I swear it wasn’t heavy when I picked it up, … Continue reading

Fellowes Protects Twitter Party

Did you know that March is Fraud Prevention Month? I try to be very careful with my personal documents and typically err on the side of caution when it comes to destroying any papers with personal information for fear of identity theft. Like Fellowes suggests in the Top 10 Ways to Prevent Identity Theft above, we used to shred every single piece of paper with any trace to us in our home, until one day, I put too many papers at once through my inexpensive paper shredder and it broke.

A Safer Alternative to Candles {Giveaway}

Lampe Berger

I was a candle girl and often had many going in my house until one day as I sat nursing my little guy I heard a crackling noise. I got up thinking maybe the stove was left on, but found nothing. I went back to sit down and the crackling was getting louder. As I made my way down our hallway I noticed that my wall by the front door was on FIRE! I quickly sprung to action putting the fire out while feeling confused about how this could happen. My glass candle holder had exploded and caused a fire. … Continue reading

Trampoline Giveaway

Trampoline Giveaway

When my daughter was three and a half, Santa brought her a trampoline. He must have assembled it in our basement because once we discovered it down there on Christmas morning (thanks to a note that hinted there was a gift waiting for her down there), we couldn’t figure out how to get it up our stairs! This little trampoline served us well for a number of years and it is such a popular item amongst young children that 7 years later, it is still a favourite at Mastermind Toys! I love this trampoline for kids because of its safety … Continue reading
