Disney Live! Mickey's Rockin' Road Show is coming to the Sony Centre in #Toronto! (March 21-23, 2014) #PromoCode




There is nothing my girls love more than a live show with their favourite characters. The singing, the dancing, and all the fun and excitement. I have to say that my husband and I have a great time too. Plus there is nothing that makes us happier than watching the girls laugh a giggle and smile from ear to ear. Sometimes I spend more time watching the girls than I do the show.

It's been a long cold winter. Keep the kids busy indoors with awesome sticker books from @DKCanada! Buy 2 get 1 FREE!

*Homeschooling Mom 4 Two received complimentary copies of the following books in exchange for my honest review*

 
For a limited time buy 2 sticker books from DK Canada and get 1 FREE!

It's turning out to be a long cold winter. We've experienced a destructive ice storm, deep freezes, and lots of snow. I try to get the kids outside as much as possible and we even built a snow slide in our own front yard. That way the kids can go out and have some fun but can quickly come in if they are getting too cold. Needless to say, they've been indoors quite a bit this winter, and they are getting a bit bored.

There's No Homework In Finland ~ What Makes Finnish Students so Successful? #Infographic


I found this interesting infographic on OnlineClasses.org  which compares Finland's school system with that of the US. My husband's family is from Finland and we went to Helsinki for 3 weeks about 7 years ago. We had a fantastic time. It's a wonderful country with many benefits. I loved that their public transportation offered free fares to those with children in strollers. Expectant mothers also receive a maternity package which includes "bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress."

It looks like they could teach us something when it comes to educating our children as well. Take a look at this infographic and let me know what you think.

Take a Look at What's New From Kellogg's Canada plus #Giveaway!


Kellogg's Canada has introduced a brand new product line-up and I was super excited to have the opportunity to try them out and tell you all about them! When the box came my girls couldn't wait to get their hands on all of it. In hind sight I should have hid it from them and opened it in secret cause everything is sooo yummy I don't want to share! 

Talking Anya Dress Up & Pet Puppies App for iPhone and iPad

*Homeschooling Mom 4 Two received compensation to try the product and offer my honest opinions*

My daughters have a new favourite phone app!

My girls love phone apps for kids. I think my youngest learned how to use a smart phone when she was two, not that that is at all uncommon these days. The sight of a toddler with an iPhone in hand is now the norm. My oldest was given my husbands old iPhone to use for games. And like a nice sister, she shares with her little sister too. They love interactive apps where the characters react and talk back, especially my 5 year old. What apps are your little ones playing with these days?

Children's picture book review: Sticky Icky Booger Bugs. A day in the life of a young boy living with Cystic Fibrosis

*Homeschooling Mom 4 Two received a complimentary copy to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own*
Sticky Icky Booger Bugs

I was very pleased to be offered the opportunity to review the children's book, Sticky Icky Booger Bugs, about a little boy with cystic fibrosis. Thankfully, my girls are both healthy, but I think it's important for them to be educated about the different conditions that other children their age are faced with. This helps them to be more understanding and empathetic to those they meet as they get older. I never want them to be judgmental or hurtful to someone. This book is helping me to teach them that even though the little boy is sick, he's still just like any other kid.

Buy gently used children's clothes for up to 90% off retail from FlipSize Canada online! {#Giveaway}


Shop for the kids at FlipSize and save a ton of cash!

I have a confession. I don't like to shop and I hate spending money. Sounds strange considering I'm a woman, right? Perhaps it's because money has always been tight and we've found ourselves in a tough spot on numerous occasions. I'm a stay at home mom. I homeschool my girls and babysit for friends. My hubby has a good job, but it basically pays the bills. So we need to budget and make sure we're careful with our spending.
