Going on an Adventure with Tonies

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with a Toniebox for our review. All thoughts, opinions, and fun times are our own. 




Parents, we have all been there: Your child is in front of a screen all day due to school, and as soon as class ends they run to a tablet or phone for more screentime. We all know what happens next. We tell them to get off the screen and they say that they are bored and have nothing to do. So what do you do in this situation? You find something that keeps them occupied and does not require a screen and that is where the Toniebox comes in.

Learning to Care with Blue's Clues

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with an advance copy of Blue's Clue & You: Caring with Blue in exchange for a review and giveaway opportunity. All thoughts, words, and excitement are our own. 



Back in June, we reviewed Blue's Clue & You and my son absolutely loved the DVD.  I loved seeing a new generation of Blue's Clue and seeing how the show was updated for today's time and hearing familiar songs with a new twist. Now that we are familiar with Josh and the characters of the show, this new collection of episodes is a joy to watch.

Finding Your True self with Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs



Every now and then a movie comes along with a great message and gets lost because not many people see it. Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs is a fun retelling of the Snow White story but with a message about being true to yourself and those around you. While my family and I enjoyed the movie, we all agreed that it started a little slow before the storyline really picked up.

It's Never Easy to Say Good-Bye

 


It's been over a month and we just emptied out her food bowl. The water basically evaporated and her food just sat there untouched. I am not sure if it was a written rule in our house, but no one emptied our dog's, Samantha aka Sammie aka Sam's food bowl since she passed away on August 8th. When Sam passed away that is where she laid down and took her last breath, next to her bowl, and taking that away just seems so final. We’re not quite ready for that but we know it has to happen for us to move forward. Taking that away also takes away the memory of the kids’ first chore. After her morning walk, the kids would take turns feeding Sam. Every morning I have to stop myself from asking my children if they fed Sam or if she had been walked. Every morning I am reminded that she is not here anymore.
