We are finally settled- okay in full disclosure we are moved and all the boxes on the main floor and bedrooms are unpacked. To some they would say we are doing good but to this girl I wish it was done but I am being patient (or trying to be) and realizing my body won’t allow me to do all I want and on top of that moving with 4 kids one of which is officially walking and in to EVERYTHING so things take a lot longer and lots of things require me to wait till little people are sleeping to get things really organized. Our play room is still not ready which has been hard for the kids because before we moved I made them pick a few toys each that they got to keep “out” from the rest of the playroom that got packed up and is still in boxes for them to play with but as I am sure you are aware those toys got old fast thankfully a few days before we moved (literally 2 days before) a package from Red Planet Group showed up with literally the most amazing goodies for the kids so I tucked it away until we were moved and about the 3 day we were in the new house I brought out the box and it was like Christmas for them. I let them each pick out something new and put it away for another couple days and than brought it out again and did the same thing. Honestly can’t say THANK YOU enough to Red Planet Group – this felt like the biggest mom win and I didn’t do anything! I wanted to share with you guys some of our favourites from the package because I am nice like that and because I know summer is coming (like so soon) and with that comes days when a new little something for the little people can come in handy wether its to keep them entertained or its a well earned reward for doing some chores, graduation gift or even a birthday gift (our two girls have summer birthdays plus friend birthday parties as well which means gifts gifts gifts!) In no particular order because we love them all…

Scruff-A-Luvs: Okay I’ll be honest the packaging was cute little box but once they opened them I was like okay these look worn and old an not as cute as the box shows BUT once you give the sweet little pups a warm bath and good wash and brush and than blow dry them they are fluffy and cute and my girls have been sleeping with them and my youngest brings hers along everywhere with her. In the box also comes an adoption certificate and a name tag and collar, bow and brush. To purchase one for your self check out Toys R Us, Walmart and Canadian Tire

Boxy Girls: Posh, cute and high end each girl is special in their own way. These super cute little dolls and small enough to carry around with you but big enough to be safe around baby and fun to play with. They come with the most fun accessories (like even I legit had fun styling the dolls) which include jewelry, makeup shoes, bags – basically all the things every girl needs! (Am I right or am I right!?) Each doll comes with 6 different boxes to unwrap but on top of that you can purchase Fashion Packs which essentially are more clothes and accessories for your doll because we girls like to have options and so do the dolls! Boxy Girls are sold at Walmart and Toys R Us

Bananas: No no the fruit although they are the same shape these cute brightly coloured bananas are not edible but are super yummy smelling (no they don’t smell like bananas) fun bright bold colours are sold in a a group of 3 – in like a bunch – you know how you find real bananas. These bananas can be linked together to stay in the bunch or can be taken apart and played with individually. Inside each banana when you “peel” it open inside is an adorable collectible “crushie” characters and accessories! There are 24 adorable “crushie” characters to collect and there are even ultra-rare and limited edition crushies. The bananas come with vines that reseal so you can display them and take them everywhere with you. One banana includes: collectible character, 2 cute mini friends, gem stones, collector’s guide, character sticker, and hanging vine. Bananas are sold at Toys R Us, Walmart and Indigo

Gear Head: this new line of collectible vehicles is putting a different “spin” on things! When you open your box you will find a little red “tool kit” that will include a die cast metal tool that you will use to release your wheel and rim from inside your “wood” crate and once you have it open you will discover which mystery vehicle you will be playing with. These toys are so neat that even Dad had to get in to play and see how far he could launch his vehicle by simply turning the key. One of my favourite features is that it is easy to keep tidy because all the pieces – tools and vehicle can be store in the crate! To purchase some Gear Head you will find it at Toys R Us.

  • Less than 3 weeks left till summer break starts and I don’t know who’s more excited! So ready for the change of routine- anyone else? These two are telling you to check out the blog today to see what they’ve been playing with lately! #linkinbio #sisters #bff #redplanetgroup
  • A lot has changed since this photo back in December! Settling in, unpacking (that feels like it’ll never end) and making this house as home is a dream come true! Looking back over the past 2 years there where days I doubted this day would ever come but this guy never stopped believing and working hard to see this dream for me, for us, for our family come true! I love you @tspinksy
  • Long weekend spent doing errands and packing - sore throat, full ears and a headache making this girl frustrated - sleep they say!?! And I say I wish but when your a mama to 4 and moving in just days sleep will have to wait! Thankful for medicine, @starbuckscanada and the fact we get to move to our new house so soon! Perspective changes everything - can’t change how I feel but I can change my focus!
  • Cold wet morning and early specialist appointment where they told me I had to wear loose fitting clothes- track suit it is! #monday #letsdothis
  • The privilege and blessing it is to be their mommy is one I don’t take for granted ever. They were each worth the years of heartache. Today is always an emotional one for me so today I say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms - the first time moms, the seasoned ones, the mommy’s in waiting, the hurting ones, the grieving one wether that be from the loss of a mom or a loss of a baby/child, to the foster mamas, to the bonus moms to the adoptive mommy’s and the birth moms - I am thinking of you today and I hope you feel love and valued because you are!
  • As a mommy I find myself often times so proud to be the mommy of my little people. I remember being proud when they slept through the night or took their first steps. The older they get the more proud I am of them not necessarily when they simply accomplish a task or master a skill but when they make choices that show their true character. This girl had another gymnastics competition today and she was feeling all kinds of nerves but as she told her brother and sister “I just went out there and did it” and that she did. I was so proud of her not just for being brave or not just because she put lots of work into learning her skills and ended up placing in each event she competed in but because my 6 year old was awarded the sportsmanship trophy for the ages 7-9 in the competition. That to me as her mama made me cry and beam with pride. My girl out there with a positive attitude encouraging the other athletes and competing in a kind and fair manner that’s what it’s all about to this mama. I can take no credit for her awards or her trophy today she earned them all but I sure am proud and not afraid to say it. I love you #graylynnhope and I’m proud to be your mama not just today but everyday!
